Time for a hearty breakfast

Baby, it's cold outside.

And when you have to go out on a morning like this, it's important to have a good breakfast in your belly.

Just ask this clown.

A closer look at that bowl of Wheaties reveals that the clown has tried to jazz up his breakfast by adding what appear to be either prunes or cicadas.

Truth be told, what this clown really wishes was that he could have one of these fried egg with Swiss cheese and prosciutto on a biscuit sammiches that we like to make here at the compound:


If you'll take a look at the music widget you'll see that I've changed the tunes for this week. It's all Mardi Gras music from now until Fat Tuesday. One of my favorite tunes on the list is "Jockomo" by Sugar Boy Crawford. It's the 50's R&B version of the song that the Dixie Cups later made famous as "Iko Iko". I got the Dixie Cups on there too. Maybe in the next few days I'll put up some more Mardi Gras and New Orleans related goodies. We'll be heading down there in March for spring break; it will be MizBubs and the girls' first post-Katrina visit. These next few days will intensify the anticipation.

I'd put up some stuff for Carnival, except that I know nothing about Brazil (other than I love their national drink, the Caipirinha). Maybe if we're nice Splotchy will share some of his wonderful collection of Brazilian music with us.

Stay warm.

Aside from the awful Bozo, this is making me very hungry. Must. Try. Soon.

Hey, just saw John Edwards is dropping out via New Orleans . . .

Did you see the AP article last week that most kids are indeed afraid of clowns?
I'd rather have the sammies too.
I'm sad about Edwards - I was all set to caucus for him on Feb 5th in the great frozen state of Minnesota.

Those sammies look good, heart attack inducing but good none the less.

Yummm! I will be over in ten minutes!

Splotchy said...

I will trade you Brazilian music for a sammich.

I like frosted cicades, but the wings get stuck in your teeth. And I lurrrve caipirinhas, but you've probably figured out by now that I lurve anything alcoholic.
