Pfffttttt.....

My coffee pot is out to get me.

First attempt yielded hot water. After putting the grounds INTO the filter, it then sat there for 15 minutes, not brewing.

After pouring the boiling-hot water BACK into the spot where it has to bubble up and over (or something), it still sat there; not brewing.

It was then that I recalled every i.t. guy's words of wisdom and turned the damn thing off and on.

I now possess the most sought-after cup of coffee I've ever brewed.

Ahhhh.....

Moments ago, Evan ran into the office and smacked me.

"WTF?!?"

Laughing maniacally, he dashed out screaming that I have the Cheese Touch.

It's looking to be a rip-roaring Monday!

Ha! Cheese touch!

The Keurig I bought Andy for Christmas is acting really funky. He asked if Macy's will still take it back after so long. Uh, a $150.00 coffee maker that works for 7 months? Goddamned right they'll take it back!

Our dishwasher broke after 12 years of abuse. It's one of those Mondays alright.

I was going to ask if you've tried kicking it, but turning it on and off works too. ;)

I'm not a coffee girl, but I know that desperate feeling. I freak out when we are out of Diet Coke and even when I forget to have the fridge loaded win cans (do not like to drink warm ones, even over ice). Diet Coke is my morning coffee.

I usually hit things to get them to work again. It usually works. Sometimes not though.

Ah! That GOD for the happy ending. I don't think I could have handled it if the coffee never appeared.

Am I kidding? Well, just this morning was husband was in the kitchen leaning against the stove and talking to me as I waited for my coffee to perk - once it did, he DID NOT MOVE. I said to him, "You are between me and my coffee. Is that wise?" He jumped, boy ;)

Yep, he's trained!

I really have a thing against any appliance that thinks it is smarter than me! Glad you fixed that coffee pot and showed it who is boss.

Never a dull moment.

We missed you this weekend!

yeah my kids touch whatever food and say (blank) touch. It gets a little annoying after awhile!

This is why I can't get enough of tea.
Just this morning half the office was going crazy because both coffee machines were broken (broken, meaning spitting out the smallest dose of really burnt coffee you can imagine). There I sat with my mug of tea... smiling... of course, I forget that I also have a melt down when the kettle decides to break down on me.
