More Coffee Screwups

image

This morning I made coffee and got in the shower. The toasty aroma greeted me warmly when I came out of the bathroom. I went to get a cup.

CURSES BATMAN! No coffee pot under the strainer basket. Coffee had overflowed and was all over the counter.
i had to go get my bath towel to clean it  up.

In my own defense, our coffee maker is very complicated. You have to be a mechanical engineer to disassemble/assemble it to put the filter in. Then program it for how many cups, and how strong, if you’re using the built-in bean grinder. Then enter launch codes, authorization codes, retina scan, fingerprint scan and you’re ready.

It’s very complicated for someone who wakes up as brain-dead as me.

Hopefully I got it now, and I’m done screwing up.

Oh, and I’m glad it’s FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!

Tonight I’m going to see Mad Max in 3D while the Wife goes to a jazz thingy at some restaurant with a bunch of friends. I abhor jazz. It sounds random to me.

HAVE A GOOD WEEKEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thought Less Thursday

Live from our back porch!

All morning I’ve been thinking “What am I gonna post on my blog today?” And I haven’t come up with an answer.

Last night we bought our tickets to Canada (going in August) Pretty excited about that.

At work I can’t get anything done because my boss keeps telling me to do stuff. I’m doing what he tells me but I got more important things to do… It’s a real poser.

The Wife made this mornings coffee last night. No problems there. Auto timer.

I rekkon that’ll do it for today. Have a good-un!

Coffee Disaster

This morning coffee went all over the countertop. I’m late from cleaning it up. (and sleeping an extra half hour)

Last night I had a dream a volcano went off. I was with a bunch of people and I looked up the mountain and saw black smoke coming out of the ground in two places. I yelled “LOOK!” and everybody looked and it blew up. We started running and rocks and dirt was landing all around us. 
And I dreamed I was sorting coins in alphabetical order.

Have a good day

Since My Last Post

My Last post was Thursday morning, in Miami. Thursday after school, I went looking for a denim skirt size 6 for The Wife. I was keeping an eye out all week, but Thursday I looked all over and  finally found one at Nordstroms for $211.

Got back to the room late, and started packing. It was after 1AM when I went to bed.

I got up Friday morning, finished packing and checked out of the hotel and went to school. I was hoping we’d get out early the last day of class, but no, we stayed late. The instructor printed the certificates. He was handing them out when the guy right before me said his name was spelled wrong. So. everyone (but me) had their certificates, and I had to wait till he re-printed one. It took him an hour to print one sheet. I’ve never seen anyone with an Apple computer do anything easily and without problems. Lately all the Apples I’ve seen have been running Windows.  What’s up with that? You’d never see Windows machine running Apple.  Windows doesn’t need it. And you know  that I don’t even like Windows. Also my phone rang in school, and I couldn’t answer it because I was in school. They left a voice message. I never retrieve voice messages on the road, as our phone company, LIME, is the most incredible ripoffs on the planet. I don’t even know how to get messages when roaming.

So, finally we got our good byes said and I  was on the road. My flight was 9:25 PM and I figured I could head to the beach for an hour and then head to the airport, stopping at a cigar store that was very close to the airport on the way.

I left the beach with plenty of time to spare, traffic was atrocious, 5:30 PM on a Friday afternoon, the worst of the rush hours.. The GPS wanted to put me on a toll road. I didn’t go on the tool road. I got lost and was at the southern  end of I-95. I canceled the cigar stop and programmed the GPS for the  airport. The GPS wanted me to go on the toll road. At this point I didn’t care any more, so  I went. Got to the airport (I never had to pay a toll) and checked in the car. Went to the ticket counter and was informed my 9:25 was delayed till 1 AM.

Trapped at the airport, no cigars. I could have spent the whole day differently. I could have stayed at the beach until rush hour was over, gone to the cigar store and done some more shopping. It could have been a wonderful day, had I known about the flight being delayed. If I knew in advance the flight was delayed, I would have been glad.

Got home about 3AM. Went to bed. Got up Saturday morning and checked my voice mail, and the call I missed in school was Cayman Airways, telling me about the delay.

After that, it was a good weekend. Yesterday was a holiday, Discovery Day. And now I’m heading into work this morning.

Overall, it was a great trip, I think it’s the first time I ever spent time in Miami, really. Usually I’m just in transit. I spent a week in Ft Lauderdale once in the early 90’s..

Have a good  week!

Next to Last

It’s the next to last day of school. 36 hours from now, I’ll be at the airport, waiting to go home.
Here’s a cool plant that is growing at the building where the school is.

Hasta mañana!

Melatonin. The Good Stuff

I take melatonin every night at home. I didn’t bring any with me this trip. I haven’t been sleeping well, and o haven’t been tired at bedtime.  Yesterday I got some. I slept good last night. Note to self: always take melatonin with you when traveling.

Here’s a super cool satellite dish. It can lock on to more than one satellite at a time.

Here’s my rental car:

Have a wonderful day!

Scool Day 2

Getting ready for scool day 2. Yeah. Scool.

Yesterday was good.  We voted to start an hour earlier (8 instead of 9) amd get off earlier.

Last night I went to Tacp Bell for a late night snack. There were employees out front, and and they said that the walk in was closed. I asked if I could walk through the drive through.  One girl got on her headset radio and then told me I could go ahead. She they had to make sure I didn’t get run over. I went around the side and the window girl made a big show of stopping the line of cars and took my order. Then she told me to wait “over there”. Really nice girl, chatting with the customers in their cars and smiling. Took me back to high school days, girl like that, working a part time job. Then she made a big production of stopping the cars again and waved me over and gave me my order. I gave her a $5 tip. That made her day. She said “really?” I said “yeah, thanks” As I walked away I heard her calling “Hey guys! I just got a $5 tip!” Her reaction made me feel good.
Here’s a pic from yesterday. Satellite dishes at my school.

Have a good ‘un!

I’m in Miami, headed to school in about an hour.

Flying yesterday, there was a yellow haze almost the whole way. It didn’t look like Earth. Earth, The Yellow Planet.

And the top picture was my view until I got sprinkled by the sprinkler system.

Finally Friday

I’m glad it’s Friday.
Monday I start a school for work. I’ll be in Miami all next week.
Hurricane season hasn’t even started and there’s a storm out there. Tropical Storm Ana.

Yesterday it was nice and sunny. Today should be the same. I’m riding the scooter to work for the first time in over a week.

I ordered an espresso tool from eBay. It is like one my Mother-In-Law has.  I love it. I am excited.

It has a scooper on one end and a tamper on the other. Greatest thing since sliced bread!

Have a FANTASTIC weekend!

Workaround For WordPress App

You heard me complaining the other day about the update to the WordPress app that loads all the photos instead of letting me steer to a folder. Well, I found a workaround. I can go to the photo album app, select images and then “share” them with WordPress. Then I have the option to send them to a new post or add them to the media library.

So here’s still more U/W photos.
