So. The coffeemaker didn’t grind the coffee this morning.

Whirring noise.  Nothing else.

OK.  I can go to Target.

Oh, look, Deus Ex: Human Revolution!  What will the missus say, though… oh, right, the missus is off doing roboticist stuff for a week.  I’m sure that this won’t be an issue…

Coffee maker, coffee maker, coffee maker, why the heck don’t any of these things have grinders built-in?

OK, this is a problem.  I cannot be expected to go without coffee.  Fine, let me buy a grinder.

And some ground coffee.  No, I don’t know why – actually, I do.  It’s because I haven’t had my coffee yet.  Hence the trip.

And a new coffee filter.

OK, let’s get out of here – oh, look!  Battle: Los Angeles!  Great flick.

So, I’m home… gee, what if the entire coffee maker is just broken?  Not just the grinder part?  So I hit the on button.  Without turning off the coffee grinder first, because I haven’t had my coffee yet.

And the damned grinder turns on as if nothing had happened. hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh nb mj,,,,,,,,,,,,fv b g hhhh*

On the bright side?  At least I have coffee now.  And a video game.  And a movie.  And a coffee grinder.

    any chance of RAGE next week?

  • Moe_Lane says:

    Doubtful: I know my wife’s weakness (the Metropolitan Museum of Art gift catalog). I am careful to be extra-special very reasonable about her very reasonable purchases from it, when it comes out. 🙂

  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    Fair enough! So, I recall talk about Steam some days ago, I assume you signed up?

  • Finrod says:

    On a different subject, I’d like to thank you for being the only active frontpager at RedState that I’ve never wanted to pimp-slap silly for being a giant doofus.
    This is higher praise than it sounds; it’s all too easy to slide into doofus-ville without realizing it, I know I’ve done it too many times myself.

    • Moe_Lane says:

      Finrod: I know that it’s meant as a compliment, but I have to wonder if that means that I’m not doing my job properly. 🙂


  • HeartbreakRidge says:

    So… uhh… should I not send you a FR, lest it encourage you?

  • Doug Stewart says:

    I anxiously await the Mac arrival of Deus Ex.

    Plus I just installed Boxer. Now I’ve got to go find my Syndicate Plus disc.

  • Kenneth Hite says:

    Congratulations on your purchase of a dedicated spice grinder. Just what you save on buying cumin seeds instead of the pre-ground stuff will pay for the grinder in no time. Plus, your cumin will be fresher and tastier.

  • Skip says:

    On STEAM, definitely make sure and don’t check it every day slightly after noon, to see what the deal of the day is.

  • Finrod says:

    Actually, Moe, it means you’re doing your job right, because you don’t engage in pointless silly attacks against fellow Republicans and conservatives. You give Reagan’s Eleventh Commandment the proper respect that it deserves, and I admire that.
