ELECTION RESULTS, and the Bunn-o-matic situation

Okay, Bush/Cheney won.  In my view this was about more than the election, this was about the future of the country, the stability of the world... and who gets to be my son's Commander in Chief.  I am glad that Bush won.  I don't doubt that Kerry would have done a fine job had he been given the opportunity, however I think Bush will do a better job and when my son's life is involved, and the future of my children then I want the best!  And thats all I have to say about that.  (except that I have found new respect for Senator Kerry through the outcome of the election.  I was wrong, I apologize.  I am glad that we didn't have to break out the shock collars.)

This is Day 3 of the detainment of my Bunn-O-Matic Pour-O-Matic.  Last night I cracked and cried out that someone was going to die today if I didn't get some real coffee.  Steve woke me up this morning with a bucket of coffee from 7-11.  It didn't come close to the quality of brew that my Bunn-o-matic puts out (7-11 also uses Bunn-o-matic, but they have tainted their system by brewing the decaf from the same machine as the real coffee... that is a major java-gourmet 'NO NO') but it gave me enough of a jolt to get me moving.  Hostilities have been diverted for the time being.  I have decided to view the situation as 'commandeering'.

Main Entry: com·man·deer
Pronunciation:
"kä-m&n-'dir
Function: transitive verb
Etymology: Afrikaans kommandeer, from French commander to command, from Old French comander
Date: 1881
1 a : to compel to perform military service b : to seize for military purposes
2 : to take arbitrary or forcible possession of

Coupled with the fact that I married and supported a career soldier and gave birth to a future soldier I now consider my contributributions to the military as time served and respectfully request an honorable discharge.  I expect my Bunn-O-Matic back at my place of residence by no later than 1800 hours tomorrow evening or I will call for a full congressional investigation.  AND I thinksome kind of medal for service, valore, honor and sacrifice would be in order as well.

lol, I had a feeling that once you mentioned the Bunn-O-Matic going to dickydoo's work, that it would be sometime till you got it back. But, I just want to say you better be careful, because the Bunn-O-Matic may not be the same once it does comes home, LOL. Take it from me, I have had it happen.

I can't believe the Bunn O Matic is still not home!  I'd go kidnap it if I were you.  
I am very pleased with the election results as well.

I came here to follow up on the bun-o-matic situation, and I am not pleased that it has not been returned to it's rightful owner.  Aren't they kind of expensive?  Could you go out and buy a new one (leave it in the box and don't lose the receipt) and if you dont' get yours back PRONTO, you'll open it up and use it?!

I'm sorry about the coffee pot problem. I don't think I'd be happy with 7-11 coffee , I prefer my own . This from a person who works at 7-11. When I work early I have my travel mug with my own coffee. Hopefully you'll get your coffee maker back soon.

I'm so relieved!  I thought Armandt and I were the only folks in J-land who voted for Bush, and I was beginning to wonder how in Sam Hill he even got elected!  http://journals.aol.com/mosie1944/MYCOUNTRYLIFE
