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.
