Worth getting up for

The new, improved Breakfast of Champions:

We went to the breakfast buffet at Golden Corral and decimated the bacon tray.


Just so you know we had a balanced breakfast, we also had cheesy hashbrowns, very oily homefries, gravy that was last used as salty spackle on the International Space Station, and an apple slice drowned in the caramel fountain.

Sorry, no calorie count: it’s too much trouble to do scientific notation in HTML.

    That post is an example of why I avoid gratuitous profanity in private (though perhaps not so much if I’m alone alone…). Indulging a bad habit in “certain situations” too often leads to inadvertantly indulging it in other situations, impending stroke or not, bacon overdose or not.

    This caution was explicitly bestowed more than once by parents and Catholic-nun schoolteachers as I was growing up. I figured there must be something to it.

    Yep. I’m a bad, bad girl, all right.

    Eggs in a basket with bacon, hash brown casserole and a side of grits at Crack Bar, Scattered, Smothered and Covered at your local Waffle House, The Country Steak B’Fast at Braums with an order of tater tots or whatever they call them, or whatever granddaughter picks at Whataburger since she doesn’t eat enough to feed a bird and I’ll have to finish it. Many reasons not to go to Golden Corral for b’fast.

    Found a Zecora on amazon, $50 for a 4″ (counting the standup mane…) figurine. For $50 granddaughter should be able to ride it. ;)

    I’ve seen plushies that can be ridden on eBay, albeit at prices that would make your nose bleed. (They support something like 40-50 lb maximum weight.)

    The only place I seem to overdo it at breakfast is Cracker Barrel, usually with the family — and once, mirabile dictu, with Tam.
