Out of the Blue

When filling a large dog's water bowl got added to making coffee as part of the morning routine here, we replaced our Brita water pitcher a while back with one of those larger three-or-so quart models. This morning I managed to cross my pre-caffeine wires and pour some of the coffee grinds straight into the water filter. I suppose there is a chance that this represented a subconscious discovery of a new time saving coffee making method that would involve boiling the brown water that would then be produced, but I took the other possible interpretation, that sleep depravation was the cause, and if this weren't addressed, more dangerous errors were possible in the future. Sure, I may be overlooking a great get-rich-quick scheme here, but I figure it's better to play it safe and avoid doing something like walking the popcorn while the dog cooks in the microwave.

Band of Brothers was really good

EDIT: It was like watching Day of Defeat on tv, but with better graphics and more teamwork
