So, I'm making a wedding cake. This isn't that strange; the list of "things I have baked and successfully served to other people" already has 4 wedding cakes and countless birthday/christening/whatever cakes on it.

What's unusual about this cake is I have to transport it 2 1/2 hours north of New York City in Friday night traffic, so new precautions had to be taken. Research (um, the Internet, which knows all things) showed me chilling the cakes 12 hours before they go in the box would keep everything in one piece on the way to the party. So I had to clean out the freezer to make room for all the cake.

I don't cook, but people keep giving me food as if I will somehow one day decide to make a meatloaf or roast a chicken, so there a lot of frozen *StuFF* in there.

Including: A package of chicken breast from 2005, a package of ground turkey from some time in 2007, and a box of grape Smucker's Uncrustables of unknown origin, since I eat neither white bread nor grape jelly.

GROSS. Maybe one day I will learn to use the food before it's gone rancid. But not this day.

I actually moved to my current place late in 2006, which means, not only did I pack up the frozen foods from my old apartment, which was ALREADY a year old, I brought it to my new apartment, where is has sat since I moved here.

I think that might be worse?

For me, the freezer is just a stop-off point for between not being ready to toss something and being (really) ready to toss something. Oh, and a place for ice. That is all.

my freezer is empty, except for a few boxes of cereal and the occasional single ice cream sandwich.

contrary to popular belief, you do not have to store your batteries in the refrigerator.

Yup. Check the box, it has a date on it. The kind I buy gets stale after a few months, and I don't eat it every day. Yet I buy it from Amazon in bulk for an incredibly cheap price and free shipping, so...
