Toasty Toast

Sometimes there is nothing better than a good’ol slice of toast to start the day off with or to eat at other times of the day…. As an avid toast eater of many years I know how I like my toast toasted or at least until my friend told me about the article about how to toast bread……
Can you just imagine…Me standing in my kitchen with a slice of bread to be toasted in my hand when I received a call telling me that after all these years…. You guessed it right!!!

I have been toasting my bread incorrectly!! That was a horror morning at its best… Simply a bad toast time!!! And that all thanks to those folks out there who say they know how to toast the perfect piece of bread….

After all these years and all those toasting errors I am still a faithful toast eater… Now according to the information it is essential to have the right thickness of bread (no exceptions here) Thickness is of the utmost importance, so take heed when you are slicing your bread!!!

I got my trusty bread slicing knife out and approached the loaf with caution this morning…. I could tell by looking at the loaf of bread that there was danger lurking within the loaf. I placed the loaf with caution on the cutting board trying not to upset the loaf of bread in any way…. Can you see it now in the headlines of the local newspaper “Women up-set loaf of bread, and now she can’t have a slice of toast”… That is moving information and you wouldn’t want to be confronted with an ornery loaf of bread either!

But I managed to slice the bread… of course I used a high tech device that will calculate the thickness, so no unwanted angles or so in my slices… I plugged the toaster in and I could sense that the sliced bread was getting a bit nervous about the thought of being put into the hollows of a toaster (Yes, I believe it could be somewhat traumatizing for the bread)…. Have you ever taken a peek down into your toaster? (Of course when it isn’t plugged in!!) It looks mighty dangerous to me with all those electrical bits that turn a reddish color when in operation!!

Bravely I put two slices into the toaster and pushed the little lever down and waited patiently for my toast (Did you know if you pop the toast up before it is finished its toasting time that the bread won’t be completely toasted? According to the info) what idiot doesn’t know that…. Please

Now that the toasting process has been completed (this all sounds so scientific) I can remove the toast from the toaster and butter it (wow) Plus the temperature of the butter is also important too… This making toast business is tiring me out and I am not finished yet….. Why did my friends have to tell me all this stuff????

Plus to top it off you have to wait an allotted time before buttering it too, Okay the clock is ticking … Maybe now I can butter it and top it with whatever I like. But the most important thing is and you will never guess in a million years….. You have to think about “how many slices you would like to eat”…. Now that is a mind boggling thought in itself!!!

So when you get up in the morning, don’t rush the toasting process and take care to toast correctly or else you may end up with a sad looking piece of toast and that you wouldn’t want…. Have fun toasting toast!

The Importance of a Woman’s Brain

Gal’s brains too are full of great things as I learned from this past weekend’s newspaper too… Now I can honestly say that I can finally understand myself after all these years… Ok, it’s taken awhile but I know now!!!

It is said that gal’s brains are divided into sections too, so that we have at least something in common with guy’s brains… what a small world it seems to be!!!

Diet section: I’ve been watching my weight for years, but I can always find something new to think about when it comes to dieting like: no candy bars for the next 2 days.. And now I already feel better with this thought because it is part of my diet.

Hair section: A nightmare when your hair doesn’t look good and I have a bad hair day…. No more thoughts today except my hair … OMG!!!!!

What to wear section: Oh, that takes up a major section of my brain and when I open my closet door and stand there I have make that all decisive decision “ what do I wear today?” – You can sort of compare this to a multi-million dollar decision as to how to run a company… But running a company could be easier!!!

Shoe section: Key section and equal to the “what to wear section”…. I love my shoes so much that my brain cells are shaped like shoes… to keep my thoughts focused.

Spending money section: Stores here I come!! But this section of the brain is connected to your wallet, so how much you spend depends on how much money is in your wallet… but a degree of happiness is always there.

Speaking section: Now, I would rate this as the utmost important section of a gal’s brain because many of us gal’s love to talk and I can only speak for myself… I could talk for hours and never run out of things to say!

So, gal’s when you put all those great sections of your brain together we have great thoughts, and talking about that… Have a happy time thinking about whatever it may be!

Guys and Gossip

I almost fell off the kitchen chair just now when I read that „Guys Gossip“… That is something that I would have never thought of in a million years!!! My golly; I had to read it in a news paper to confirm my thoughts after all these years…. Thank you newspaper article for letting me know that my thoughts were true…. I really feel relieved now and can get on with my Sunday!!!

Plus, not only the gossip article there was another one in another weekend paper that showed how guys brains are working with thoughts… No scientific stuff, but more categorized about life, and what you guys think about makes me wonder ????

Back to gossip connected to the brain: This whole gossip business made me think and I know I have written about gossip before, but never in this context of each section of a guy’s brain what have they gossiped about or are gossiping about.

So each section of the guy’s brain I guess inspires guys to gossip or is it talk…. I’m confused here

1. “ Beer section”: Now that is something I know has potential for hours of discussion and to gossip about who drinks which brand of beer and where can you get the best deal on a six-pack. Defiantly gossip potential here!

2. “S…. section” : You all know what I am talking about here, without spelling the word out. There too is an endless gossip topic that guys can dream about; compare notes on the subject and fantasize about something for hours, but first a couple of beers to get the conversation rolling…

3. “Making money section”: The most important thing of all or not??? The size of your wallet makes you a man and the thinner it is ….. Sorry, most chicks won’t like you, nor will you have many so called friends either.. But you can gossip about each other’s salaries or how much the boss earns and “why aren’t you earning that much?” Money is a topic which can be gossiped about forever!

4. “ Hot air- doing nothing section”: Oh, now doing nothing and just shooting the breeze about nothing and trying to look good in front of the other guys is a past time for many guys or just talking about nothing trying to impress some gal or someone else.. But you can gossip with the other guys about this and tell them how they BSed some chick into believing something… Life at its finest hour!!

And last but not least on the gossip / brain list was:

5. “Eating section”: Food definitely a must because who has eaten at the best restaurant or who’s partner can cook the best meal or even exchanging your favorite recipes and maybe even start a cooking club to combine all the above mentioned so that the gossip is focused and not just aimless conversation. Good gossip is the key to life and without it we would all be lost!

As for the chicks brain there was a diagram too, but I’ll get back to that later on this week.

Guys enjoy gossiping whatever the topic maybe!

I Have To Ask My Bra Today…..

The world is changing and isn’t as I imagined it might be and now there’s some mention of a bra that sends signals to prevent me from eating chocolate or other such great stuff when I am feeling a tad stressed…. Where’s all the fun in life going …. Cheers!!

I do not what to wear a bra with some electronic equipment built into it and it senses that “oh dear… my wearer seems to be getting in a tizzy.” Now bra send a signal to the wearer warning her that she should under no circumstances get the idea to eat chocolate or junk food…. Party pooper!!

What do I do now?? I can’t let my bra get the best of me and control my life. I am in charge here and not my bra!! Plus what would happen if I ignored those signals and went to the store and bought myself 2 candy bars and ate them both…. Anyone know the answer? I sure don’t!! But I would feel better after eating the chocolate and who cares what my bra thinks!!

I am sure there is some scientific nonsense behind the system but I wonder how do you wash such bras in the washing machine and are the bras nice looking or are they so ugly looking that if you were seen in your bra the guy looking at you would get a heart attack because the bra is so ugly.. Or what sort of signal does the bra send off when you’re feeling in the mood?? Will the bra blow a fuse and short circuit? I don’t want to get electrocuted by my own bra just because I am in the mood… The dangers of wearing a bra seem to be lurking everywhere!

A further thought about these bras is are they guaranteed, because I am sure they would cost more than $10.00 and I wouldn’t want to buy one and after a short time the electronic system breaks down… Then what?? How will I know when I need my chocolate bar, because the signal isn’t being sent from my bra? Plus how heavy are those bras and are they figure shaped and not with ugly bulges appearing where they shouldn’t be.

There I am out with friends and we are sitting in a bar and a guy comes over and says to me.. “Ah I can see you are wearing one of those sensor bras, because of the way you look there”. Now what would my bra tell me… Punch the guy or remain cool??? Could the bra answer that question based on its sensors??? I want facts here no BS

A really scary thought is what happens if the batteries are running low and you can’t recharge them or are there bra recharger stations in the ladies rooms that you can use to recharge your bra for only $1.50 a minute…. I feel saved now; I wouldn’t want to be out and about and then be told by the sensors in my bra that the batteries are losing their charge… I could scream!!!

Though I will try to manage my life as I have been for the last….. years; just wearing normal bras without sensors and using my brain to tell me whether or not I should eat some chocolate or not.

Gals enjoy your life & chocolate bar(s) because we only live once!

I Forgot Your Name Today

I forgot your name .. that seems to happen to all of us sooner or later, but we never seem to pay much attention to it and take it in stride or say that comes with age… Well, thank heavens that it doesn’t come only with age !!! My life is saved…. Thank you scientist

It seems that nowadays that our brain has been transformed into some sort of computer and that when it is consolidating its files we seem to forget other people’s names.. Now that is something… Isn’t it? I always thought my brain was you know like you learned in school this mass inside your skull but who am I to know and since my brain has a couple of years wear and tear I guess it works differently than the newer models of brains out there?

They say it takes time to remember things and once it is stored in the name section of your brain … well then you are on the way to success and if you’re having a tad of problems on that day then please do try and avoid meeting too many new people. I guess the scientists know what they are doing but do they know the names of their colleagues and if not then what do they do? Also it mentions that they studied snails and I must complain here because my brain cannot be compared to a snail and do snails actually have a brain?? Any biologist reading this?

But the whole problem of forgetting names can be easily solved and be the hit of your next party. You’re guessing or thinking … what the heck is she talking about, well it’s simple.

The next time you plan a party and invite a bunch of people who don’t know each other; then all you have to do is buy those labels that say “ Hello” or “My name” and then the person can print their name in the space and then stick the label onto what they are wearing and there you go…. No more forgetting people’s names and after a bit everyone can remove the labels and then you can play a guessing game of who’s who and then you can really see who remembered who is who. Of course after memorizing the names and playing the game the winner should get a prize for their outstanding ability to remember everyone’s name…. I would probably lose here but it could be fun with the right group of people.

So the next time you are invited to a party don’t forget your name tag otherwise you could hear…. What did you say your name was? I forgot it

Twinkies are Leaving us Too?

Another sad day has come upon us this year 2012 and like all the other sad things that will be leaving our lives this year is the Twinkie that has maybe decided to join the ranks too. I could cry now… my childhood memories of those sweet Twinkies is fading away too.

Twinkies were a main staple in my lunch box in elementary school and they held the power that you could control your friends with because my mom put a Twinkie in my lunch box and my friends moms didn’t. My friends would sometime drool just looking at me eat my Twinkie and of course I had to exaggerate a bit as too how much I was enjoying it. Or there were kids who wanted to swap something from their lunch box for my Twinkie. But I was not going to be weakened by the temptations of other forms of food…. No way!!! Twinkies were my favorite snack!!!

That sugary thing gave me endless hours of energy and no one ever thought about the amount of sugar in it or if it would make me hyper active or cause cavities… No sir; Twinkies were just another enjoyable snack that you bit into and enjoyed the flavor of the thing. But as I got older I must say I wasn’t always a loyal Twinkie fan there was another enticing chocolate treat called ( can’t remember the name) but it was round and chocolate with a creamy filling between 2 chocolate cake like whatever and coated with chocolate and that too was full of nutrition that wound me up for hours too, and let alone thinking about the calories in it….. My waistline is expanding at the thought… over the lips and on the hips!!!

But those chocolate things just couldn’t compete with the Twinkies in my mind! Twinkies are and were one of a kind in taste and that was what counted… Who in their right mind could let such a great treat pass away????

Those fond memories associated with a Twinkie are priceless and so are the hours I spent with my friends eating them too. My mom would bring home a package of Twinkies and we could devour them in minutes if my mom let us, but of course she always said “Not more than one dear because we’re having dinner in an hour.” My thought was who cares about dinner I want to eat the Twinkies and not some boring meal that my mom would cook. I thought back then that moms have no idea about life and what is really good to eat even though I knew deep inside me that she meant well. I saw it as just trying to spoil my fun!

So Twinkie manufactures, don’t let the Twinkie pass away… That was my childhood !!!

World Earth Day April 22, 2012

World Earth Day is a day to make you aware of what is happening to the earth.

This is a good idea but why only on this day?

People should think about the environment everyday and not just for a couple of hours on a specific day. If people practiced saving energy and natural recourses and thought about how much water, gas, energy or other things that they use throughout their day we wouldn’t need to be reminded once a year that the earth’s resources are slowly but defiantly dwindling away.

Society seems to have gotten so greedy that they only think about themselves and what they need and not on the next generations to come and will there be anything left for those generations too?

There are so many ways a household can make their mark on the environment but are they willing to and do they maybe want to do without? This I doubt very much and so there you go the problem with the environment.

I myself can see the changes in the world around me that are caused from waste. Look at the oceans with all the plastic floating around in it and this being ingested by fish or they get tangled up in it and die. But as many think -> who cares; out of sight out of mind!

Or why does everyone have to own so many cars and then they all wonder -> why is there a gas shortage and prices are rising. Really now folks get real!

Or do you really need to watch TV 24/7 because the television set consumes a lot of energy and you have to pay for the electricity too. Maybe, ever thought of a TV free day or reading a book that could stimulate the mind as an alternative.

Another one is what ever happened to the good’ol clothes line where you hung your clothes out to dry and the wind and the sun dried them and they smelled good too and all that without the need of an electric dryer. The wonders of nature can be fascinating!!

There are thousands of ways that people can help out and still enjoy life. It is just a matter of starting to change your life style and not always procrastinate and say that I’ll start that tomorrow because you know as well as I do “Tomorrow never comes”

Think about what you can do and maybe you will feel better about yourself by doing your bit for the earth!
