Toaster doesn’t have a real rooting interest in Super Bowl Ex-El-Eye-Eye-Eye, especially since the Mets aren’t in it. But he does think that Pittsburgh has nice souvenirs:


It’s too bad they don’t have toaster souvenirs. Whenever the Steelers made a great play everyone in the stands could hold up a toaster and cheer. That would be so neat-o!

Toaster likes cardinals, too. They are pretty birds and don’t scare him like pigeons do:


To be fair and balanced Toaster will cheer for both teams.

Toaster is in Tampa with Bwana?

I hope he’s enjoying the warm weather and has a great time at the Super Bowl on Sunday.

Toaster loves catching rays, but we need all hands are on deck to defend our Happie Homeland:

How does Toaster feel about Bwana’s conversations being bugged by the NSA? Is the entire Chez Bwana household feeling anxiety-ridden and paranoid as well?

Poor Bwana. Such is the price of fame.

Ieew! Ickie, ickie, ickie!

Bwana told us we all had to check ourselves for bugs every night. Me: I’m clean. Not even a single bedbug. Toaster’s been turning himself upside-down, thereby leaving little piles of crumbs all over the house.

I can imagine poor Telephone must feel violated on some level. Please send him/her my condolences.

Mr. Telephone has been pretty depressed about the whole thing:


Toaster told him to keep his spirits up. But it breaks Toaster’s heart to know that Mr. Telephone is so sad.

Happy 50th Birthday Bwana! And many more!

Yay!!! Whee!!!

Toaster made special Birthday Toast for Bwana this morning.

Given the Chinese New Year directive (“Noodles should be uncut, as they represent long life.”) Toaster thinks we need to give Bwana Spaghettios for dinner tonight. Spaghettios are round and have no beginning and no end, so they are infinitely long noodles. If Bwana eats Spaghettios Toaster believes that Bwana will live forever and ever.


(Toaster is but a small appliance, but he thinks very deep thoughts.)

Noodlies for dinner tonight!

Oh boy!

Chinese New Year!

It’s another Year of the Toaster here, but for the rest of the world it’s the Year of the Ox:

People born in the Chinese New Year of Ox, 2009 will preponderantly have the below mentioned traits in their character: Leadership qualities, dependable, great organizers, loyal, patient as well as strong and responsible. They are also some of the best people one can have as colleagues in the work place as they are believed to posses strong work ethics and display their creative side as well, especially when it comes to decorating their home.

Since the people born in the Ox year are also trusted to be reliable and logical, people generally turn towards them for suggestions and guidance. Their honesty and eye for details also helps them to prove their worth both in the workplace as well as in their personal lives.

However there are a few negative traits associated with the character of the Ox that also is reflected through the people born in the ox years. Attributes like being narrow minded, stubborn, with low public relations skills and also very far from being emotional are generally associated with people born in this year.

Wow! They are fluffy like puppies. Toaster wants one ….

If you were born in the year of the Ox this will be a special year for you. This means you, Blue Velvet!!!

Traditional New Year Foods:

Noodles should be uncut, as they represent long life.

Neat-o! We know what we’re having for supper tonight!

(For those of you scoring at home, Bwana is a Dog.)

President Obama! Yay! Yay! Yay! Yay!

Toaster is very happie, too. He worked hard all night just to make this:


Toaster wanted to do it on the White House lawn, but Bwana could not get him security clearance. So Toaster toddled over to Jersey and did it at the Meadowlands.

Yes we can toast!

“If you want a friend in Washington, get a dog,” Harry Truman once said famously. He made it sound so easy.

In fact, President-elect Barack Obama’s search for a new family puppy is now breeding some ill will among dog lovers.

It is not exactly like taking heat for his position on the Gaza conflict, but Mr. Obama is sparking criticism from those who spend time thinking about these things for his family’s drawn-out search, their “naivete” and their “conflicting public statements” on exactly what kind of pooch the family is looking for.

    — Doggone It, Just Get the Puppy Already

We would like to point out that toasters make wonderful pets. They are hypoallergenic, cheerful, and extremely loyal. Yes, they tend to drop crumbs all over the house, but with the proper training they can be taught to drop their crumbs in a litter box or on old newspapers.

Mr. Obama, get your children a toaster!

this video is completely off topic, but I’m nominating “Livi” and his daughter for coolest Ohioans of the week, of the many from whom to choose.

Wow!!! Neat-o!!!

That sinks it. Toaster wants to move to Ohio!

New York City is all right, but Ohio looks like a much more fun place.

Livi did a great job! He didn’t have lines on the field to help him keep the letters straight. And Toaster is glad he didn’t have to do Script Minnesota; the poor man might have frozen to death.
