  • it's 30F here right now... time for a fire.

  • It's 34C/94F where I am. Warm :-)

    October 31, 2008

  • Right, yarb.

  • bilby - OK. You are a vegan. I eat toads-in-a-hole. Yummy.
    Good night to me.
    Good morning to you!
    Is it warm where you are?
    It's cold here.

    October 31, 2008

  • Yeah, I'm a vegan!

    Sounds like toad-in-the-hole to me.

  • bilby - what kind of logic is that? Besides the fact that a fried egg is more delicious (over easy, of course), easier to accomplish, and probably more nutritious (aren't you a vegan?) than a fried chicken -- it's just ridiculous.

    I know that's a lame argument, but I'm tired and ready for bed. And, as usual, a fried egg sounds really good right now... Mr. Dontcry makes this little piece of heaven he calls a 'hole-in-the-middle' which is a piece of bread, buttered on both sides with a hole torn from the center into which he cracks an egg and fries to a toasty, set, but not too set, perfection.

    I was wrong to feed him Marmite...

  • Fried egg is quicker than fried chicken by at least 10 minutes, so I'd guess the egg came first.

    October 31, 2008

  • How, on earth, could the egg come first? Who would sit on it?

    October 31, 2008

  • I thought this one had been settled. Obviously the egg came first. There must have once been a creature other than a chicken, which laid an egg, from which hatched a chicken, right?
