I want to eat a piece of said sacher torte RIGHT NOW. I've been working out every day this month with both weights and the treadmill, about an hour a day. But I'm willing to blow it all. In fact, unless I pull myself off the ceiling, I may have to binge on the Häagen Dazs coffee ice cream in the fridge since I don't have any sacher torte. in the cupboard at the moment.
Our oven, the poorly named Kitchenaid Superba, is acting up. I pulled out a casserole of healthy carrots, peppers, tomatoes and onions in a savory curry sauce and the probe light went on and told me it would not turn off unless I plugged it into something. Perhaps it was hungry for an early Thanksgiving turkey?
My husband and I have never used the probe and don't know where to plug it, though by that point I had a few nasty ideas I could suggest. We don't even know if we have one. But there you go, ordered around by a damn kitchen appliance.
The annoying thing wouldn't go off no matter what button we pushed. We checked numerous websites and it seems this happens quite often on this stupid model. Repair suggested? Call a technician.
Sorry, no can do. WE ARE GOING OUT OF TOWN, YOU PIECE OF CHEAP CRAP! And we have house sitters coming who expect to be able to cook themselves a hot meal.
So I'm googling up a storm, looking for help from fellow sufferers. My husband is getting ready for his regular Monday night tennis and also going into frantic WTF mode.
So he does what he usually does. He turns off the electricity in the whole house. Mr. Subtlety,
his MO - hit a fly with a hammer. Then he turns it on. Then off. Nothing works. All the clocks are blinking 12:00 now and will have to be reset. The television is dead and who knows if the usual, hold the button for a count of ten, will work, because it's finicky. I say to him, let me try this solution I just read online. PUT THE STOVE ELECTRICITY BACK ON. Seems in one of his fuse attacks he found how to shut off just the stove.
He turns it back on and I plain to try fiddling with something I read on a community help site about an old probe from something else and a bowl of water. But low and behold, when I hit Bake and Start, no stupid computer chip is telling me how to live.
By George, I think she's done it. I poke the Uverse box and voilà, Lawrence O'Donnell pops up.
For joy, for joy. I don't know what I did, which is typical with me and technology. So I won't be able to explain or repeat it. But I've saved the day so I don't care.
Okay, so maybe I won't binge on ice cream. I don't want to slip into bed while my numerous electronic devices are downstairs laughing at me and screaming 'gotcha, you stupid human!'
