MUST HAVE COFFEE!

My Bunn Pour-Omatic was unplugged and I started the brew cycle not realizing the water in the reservoir was cold.  I now have a pot full of cold vaguely flavored black water.  I can't pour the water back into the coffee maker, and to reuse the grounds would produce a weak pot of coffee.  Needless to say I'm extremely irritated right now.  And the girls are already fussing with each other.  Its not even 7am, I have NO coffee, I am NOT happy at this point in my life!  I'm just going to dump another scoop of grounds in it.  Its the waiting for the water to heat in the reservoir thats getting to me right now.  I'm not a patient waiter when it comes to my coffee.  Thats why I bought the Bunn... the water is always ready!  Stupid coffee pot!  I need my coffee NOW!

Rocky has been driving me absolutely crazy since yesterday... she's been following me around the house in that huge mask and singing opera songs.  I think I'll give her peanut butter and crackers for breakfast just to shut her up for a second and give my ears a break.  Actually she has a beautiful voice but she dilerately distorts her voice to be annoying to her sister.  It works very well.  I'm considering packing her in her brother's suitcase when he leaves for basic next month.

My husband is going shopping today.  For trucks.  BIG trucks!  My requirements are simple... its got to have 4 doors so the kids don't have to climb over the front seat... leaving snow or mud on MY seat for me to discover after I sit down... Its got to be room so they don't touch each other, and its got to be pretty!  Having a Hemi helps I guess, but as long as the engine gets me from here to there and back again... and I don't have to worry about it then I don't really care.  It just sounds good to say 'It has a HEMI'.  My dream truck, the blue one I saw on my birthday... that had a HEMI.  And of course it has to be a 4x4.  With all the hunting we do out there in the hills we need to be able to drive up the side of a canyon or ravine without the fear of getting stuck.  Big Red was awesome about that.  Waaaaaaahhhh!  I want my Big Red!

Ahhhh, coffee is ready.  I love my Bunn-omatic!  Life is good again!

Who unplugged it?  They are the ones who should be punished.  A morning without coffee is just.....wrong.

(_)>  Here have a cappucino...That'll get you started...the only coffee maker better than a bunn is the Gloria Jean's cappucino maker....I've had 3 of these already.  Pretty soon I might rise up out of this chair and do EVERYTHING!!!!!!

My husband bought me a really cool and sporty escort ZX2 2 years ago.  I know I should be happy with it...and I am a little bit, it is really fast.  The truth though...my dream vehicle is an old school bus painted hippy style.  I've wanted one since the I used to watch The Partridge Family as a child.  He won't let me have it...afraid it'll bring the property values down.  I tried to tell him that would be a good thing....the Stepford drones would move away and real people could move in.  It didn't work though...I think they may have him under their control.  Oh well....all I need now is a radar detector.
