Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

The Boogie world starts with coffee.
In fact that's the day's beginning right there. The computer, the coffee, breakfast and if I'm lucky I can get a few rows of knitting done before I have to start work for the day. Actually, this picture could also be lunch, just replace the muffin with a sandwich.
Coffee all the time and I like a good cup of coffee. Husbeast knows this so he bought me a brand new coffee maker. It's quite an ingenious machine. You place your whole beans and water in, set the timer and you wake up to fresh, hot, eye opening, yummy coffee. Being the Husbeast that he is though, he bought me the "Sass-back" model.
Oh, it looks just the same as the normal one, but it's not.
Husbeast plugged it in and set it up. The machine purred at him. Husbeast has a way with machines. They really seem to love him. He made the most fabulous cup of coffee I've had outside of a coffee shop in a long time.
The next day it was my turn. Mmmmm coffee. I had thoughts of hot roasty toasty coffee swirling in my head. MMmmmm strong robust goodness. Oh, I could taste it already. Coffee come to mama.
What was that
It's beeping at me. It continues to beep at me.
Well, I'll use my solution for any misbehaving piece of machinery. I pulled the plug. HA! take that. Sass at me and see what you get.
I plug it back in.
Oh damn. I just want coffee. This machine is beeping at me and I don't know why. I just want coffee. I set it all up with the beans and the water and I'm dreaming of coffee. I just want coffee.
Ok, I got it fixed and I got my coffee. It might have been human error. I just wanted my coffee, though. Coffee is all I could think of. Mmm coffee. It was such a good cup of coffee.
We had a good couple of days and then.... Today I woke up to water and grounds everywhere. I used my general solution and unplugged it. What the hell happened. I took it apart. Some one forgot to put the filter in and it made grounds and water go everywhere. I swear I did not do this as a punishment for the beeping incident. Really, I just want my coffee.
I cleaned her all up and set it up to go again but with a filter this time. I hit "ON" and notice the Self Cleaning light is on. Well you don't need to be cleaned, I just cleaned you. So I'll press it and shut it off. It's still on. I'll press it again. It's still on.
Ok, time for the general machine fix all. I unplugged the sassy little machine. I plugged it back in. The light is still on. The machine is now mocking me. There is no reason for that light to be on. I'm just as good as Husbeast.
Why can't the machine love me too?
Mr. Coffee never treated me this way.
Mr. Coffee doesn't mind being premanently stained after years and years of use and neglect. He's ok with looking like hell all the time. Self clean - pshaw.
Good old Mr. Coffee and I are having our morning coffee together. Sass-back coffee maker is sitting unplugged until she can appologize for treating me in such a manner.
I'm already late for work now.
I think I'll go knit a few rows on that sock.
