Blue Velvet adds: I hope Toaster gets a chance to see the Tut-ankh-amen exhibit currently on tour. I saw it at LACMA and it was wonderful.

But we didn’t have this out in SoCal:

Tut Trolley


Toaster is in awe of royalty.

King Tut …

Prince Fielder …

Queen Latifah …

Princess Leia ….

(Small appliances are very impressionable.)


Kitchen Implements for Obama!

Wow! Neat-o!

Barack Obama gives props to a fine kitchen implement:

“I was raised in a setting with my grandparents who grew up in small town Kansas, where the dinner table would have been familiar to a lot of people here in Indiana – a lot of pot roasts and potatoes and jello molds.”

Toaster has great respect for people who pay respect to the positive influence that kitchen thingies bring to their lives.

Blue Velvet sends in XOXOXO:

Sending some toast love to Toaster and family:

A Brief History of Toast

Also, I love Cream of Wheat, CoCo Wheat, and Maypo. Don’t forget to love cornmeal mush, too.

Neat-o! Toaster wasn’t aware he had Egyptian roots:

The ancient Egyptians, around 6000 years ago, were the first to develop the bread that we know today. They realised that if they let the bread sit out in Egypt’s warm climate it would rise, and when baked would retain its risen shape. However, they also noticed that after a few days in the dry desert air, the bread would become hard and unpleasant to eat.

Toasting bread in ancient times was a means of preserving it. The Romans spread the idea of toast throughout Europe, even into Britain, and the colonists brought toast to the Americas. The word ‘toast,’ in fact, comes from the Latin word tostum, meaning scorch or burn. Toast is essentially burnt bread, so the name makes sense.

Just think: Sitting out there in the desert, catching rays, making toast.

How swell!

Toaster loves Political Season, even more than Elmer Fudd loves Wabbit Season. But he says it’s not fair that the media spends so much time talking about waffles.

Waffles, waffles, waffles. All we ever hear about is waffles.

Eggo’s and all are fine, but can we a little love for toast? And other fine breakfast foods like oatmeal and cream of wheat?

And grits could use some love, too.

Wow! Clinton beat Obama in Pennsylvania and the Democratic race goes on and on and on. Some people are worried about it, but Toaster thinks it is very exciting.

He says this is like an extra-inning baseball game. They are in the 17th inning now, both sides are running out of pitchers, and they’re running out of bench players, too. It’s going to take good strategy and some good performances to win the game. What’s not to like?

Besides, the longer this goes on the more Bwana has to talk about. Bwana likes talking. And Toaster likes listening to Bwana.

Except that with the Mets playing tonight Mr. TiVo will have to save “Countdown” so that Toaster can listen to Bwana later.

Toaster didn’t realize how hard it would be to come up with a new fortune every day. The best he could do for Bwana this morning was:

Bwana wasn’t really impressed by this. It’s pleasant enough, but not exactly spiritually uplifting.

Lucky for Toaster, Blue Velvet sends some help:

This may help Toaster in his life’s mission:

The Virtual Fortune.

Wow! Neat-o! This will help a lot!

Thanks, Blue Velvet!!!

Blue Velvet makes a suggestion in No-Toast Morning:

Perhaps some sort of assistance is needed for predicting an outcome (and thus not losing sleep): The Fortune Cookie Chronicles.

Neat-o! Toaster loves Chinese food! He’s particularly fond of shrimp toast.

In order to continue his life’s mission of bringing joy and happiness to the world Toaster is going to start presenting Bwana with a fortune — along with toast — for breakfast. Nothing like a concise little affirmation with which to start one’s day.

Today’s fortune:
