Brekkie "to Die For" Literally

This is "So, NOT" a pictue of me resting. it is a picture of me after I tried to eat My Vickies cooking. Oh we were all so sick.

This came about because of my new friend Georgia Little Pea from Austrailia. You see when we met her, we had some questions about the meaning of some of the words they use and her typest graciously wrote a whole blog entry about the fun new words.

My favorite words were Brekkie which Georgia's typest explained first thing in the blog and My Vickies favorite words were "Bonza Sheila" (I think she just liked being called a bonza sheila... and this is why:

The Meaning Of "Bonza Sheila" we found on the net

Q: What is a Bonza Sheila??
A: Bonza Sheila is Australian slang for a wonderful girl.
adjective:- great, excellent
noun:- a common term for an Australian female, usually single and probably good looking. It probably originated from the high number of female immigrants from Ireland called Sheelagh.

Yep, thats My Vickie alright.

So anyway, My Vickie decides that I should get a Brekkie this morning and she wanted to make something that she would like too, so she gathered some eggs, a tiny bit of onions. (I know, I am not supposed to eat onions so they were only on her side) some sliced turkey, tomatoes and cheese.  She was gonna "Cook" a Brekkie for us.

Now this is scary because, My Vickie cannot, I say cannot and should not, be allowed to cook.  Even when she was married she was such a bad cook that she had to always call her mother to walk her through, "how to cook roast and potatoes" 

Well, she cracks open those eggs into a frying pan.  After she picks out the pieces of shell that broke into the eggs, she stirred them vigorously, used a little salt and pepper, then sat back and waited for the eggs to cook.

We waited for 15 minutes and nothing happened.  She would walk up to the oven with her little black spatula and try to see if the eggs were getting gelled or something but they just stayed runny. 

It was another 5 minutes before My Vickie discovered she had not turned the burner on.  Mmmmmmm

Then it took her another 10 minutes to realize that the reason the eggs were not cooking even now, was that she had turned on the back burner and not the front burner where the frying pan was.

Eventually she added the turkey, tomatoes and cheese and when she finally finished, it really did look kind of tasty.  Just maybe this Brekkie thing might work out.   Uh Huh.....

That is until we tasted it....

Have you ever eaten rubber before?

I honestly think that rubber would have tasted better.  And it probably wouldn't have made me feel like lying down and not moving for an hour.

Thank goodness you can buy nutritious pre-cooked food for us fourlegged ones in the stor.  Otherwise I would starve or die of food poisoning.
One final thing.  I, like some of my bloggy friends have had trouble making comments on some pages.  For instance, I cannot tell "Just Me, Meeka" how beautiful she is or "Sagira" Cheeshounds" Mattie of Matties journal, or "Bailey Be Good" how much I enjoy reading abou them.

I finally figured that if the comment section looks like the one in the picture above, well I just can't leave a comment.
If it looks like this one, with Name/URL or Anonymous, then I can leave a message.  does anyone know if I can make the changes or does it have to be done by each individual blogger. 

what ever, I just want those of you who I can't leave a comment on, that I still follow you...and enjoy reading about your lives sooo much.

After nearly 10 years my dad is still surprised when Mom uses an Aussie word he hasn't heard before (my Mom is Australian you know) HIs favorite at the moment is "scallywag" which is what she calls "IT" all the time.also calls him a "bug-a-lug". Strange words Mom uses.

For the use ID thing - just choose "use your google account" that is what blogger runs through - it is part of google.

Oh Bert, you crack us up!! Hope your tummy finally settled down!!

We've been sort of lucky - Mom still has an AOL account and can sign in with AIM. But, she has to use her name instead of Sam. We are missing out on some blogs too, though - there have been a couple that won't let us post no matter what.

That brekkie looks pretty darn good to us, Bert! Blogger is playing nice with us but other doggies are still having many problems! We hope they get resolved soon!

Love ya lots

Mango said...

Wow! She sounds like my mom! The only kitchen appliance she uses is the microwave. Sorry the foodables were transformed to an inedible lump.


Finn said...

That brekkie looks pretty good! Ovens are tough to master!

We love eggs for brekkie, but we only get the leftovers. We love them cooked any old way at all. Thanks for the Aussie lesson - we will have to check out your furiend's post.

We tried allowing anonymous comments on our blog for a couple of days and we got some very bad comments, so Mom had to change it back. Do you have a google account, you can get one for free and that is how we sign in to be able to comment. We hope you can figure it out because we would love for you to be able to visit us sometime too.

i hope your tum gets good soon. maybe if you ate some possum poop, you'll feel better.

A lot of people were having problems with leaving comments--Me included. But if you go to the help forum there should be an answer about how to resolve it--I 'think' that blogger was saying to empty out your cache, and cookies and sign out and back in and that should do it--something like that...Hope you get it fixed!

Anakin Man said...

Oh my goodness- my Momma was laughing so hard during this-

hers doesn't know how to cook either-
and we always say we are surprised we still have a kitchen-

Momma eats microwave stuffs-

and she tried to make eggs once too-
we are surprised our Momma knew at least they went in fry pan and not toaster-

We wanted to say thanks for stopping by our bloggy and the nice comments you left for our sissy Josie-
We love new furiends and you are adorables-
We look forward to more visits!!
TriXie and Anakin (hello 'deres)

Anakin Man said...

Oh pee-s

about blogger-
our furiends had troubles leaving comments on our bloggy too-

if you have pop up comment form or full page (like yours) blogger if fine-
but we seem to think blogger is eating embedded comment form- so we changed our comment form- and everything seems fine-
as for our furiends that still have embedded and we try to leave comments- we just try to keep signing out and signing back in-

Meeka said...

Hi Bert,
You are funny. Do you have a fire extinguisher in your kitchen, you know, just in case :)
Hope your tummy feels better.

P.S. You comment made me blush. Thank you for thinking I'm beautiful.

KB said...

Hi Bert,

You had me chuckling and chuckling. Your Vickie and I are very similar. I've never known how to cook. Thank goodness that I married someone who loves to cook or we'd all be faded away to skin and bones by now.

The burner not on, and then the wrong burner on - that was when I almost fell over laughing!

I think that each individual blogger has to make those changes but I'm not absolutely sure. They need to allow anonymous comments.

Whisppy said...

Hahahaha. What a funny story, Bert! And I thought I was a bad cook.

About leaving a comment, I have the same problem with some blogs but I found that if I use Google Chrome, I am able to comment for those blogs...

violett said...

Hi Bert,
Thank you for your Beuche on my blog.
We also have problems with Google Blogger. Sometimes it does, then not again.

Today's post about your Mom has a good laugh.
In the future you might want to cook yourself? You'll learn for sure!
Lots of love

Boondocks said...

Bless your heart. Hope you feel better soon and that you don't have to eat anymore of your mom's attempts at cooking!


Sammie and Avalon said...

Hahah! So sorry your Vickie makes such bad eggers! Don't worry... you will feel much better soon - we are so glad to have met you and want to follow you, so we will copy your URL!! Hope you really are feeling better by now!

At least there was a lot of love in your rubber eggs, right Bert? My mom sometimes makes rubber chicken, so I understand how you feel :)

Suzanne said...

Bert, sorry to hear you are feeling well. We laughed when we read your story.

We also had problems leaving comments. Our friend Sue told us to uncheck the "stay signed in" box when we sign into our account. Fixed it right up, as can be seen by the fact we are leaving a comment :) Hope that helps.

Bailey Be Good! said...

Bert, I LOVED reading about all your friends and seeing their pictures! Thanks for sharing them!

About a brekkie -- still not sure what it is (and my mommy never heard the term), but she has cooked eggs before. I think I should tell her to make some eggs!

About the comment section on my site -- it doesn't look like the picture you posted, and I see you were able to post a comment. YAY! I'm so glad! I would not want to lose touch with such a nice doggie. :)

Woofs & hugs!
