I love breakfast…

Man, I love breakfast!

I was at a wine tasting for work and we were talking about random stuff that lead to more random stuff… My office man guy was talking about a magazine that talked about different outlooks on certain subjects over large spans of time, this time the topic was food.

Recently we had to write a small bio about ourselves and one of the things he suggested was what we love to eat. I can not tell you how much I love breakfast! I think about what I want to eat before I get out of bed…

This quote came up. I have to say I rather enjoyed it because breakfast can be pretty intense, I can relate… minus the cocaine.

“Breakfast is the only meal of the day that I tend to view with the same kind of traditionalized reverence that most people associate with Lunch and Dinner. I like to eat breakfast alone, and almost never before noon; anybody with a terminally jangled lifestyle needs at least one psychic anchor every twenty-four hours, and mine is breakfast. In Hong Kong, Dallas or at home — and regardless of whether or not I have been to bed — breakfast is a personal ritual that can only be properly observed alone, and in a spirit of genuine excess. The food factor should always be massive: four Bloody Marys, two grapefruits, a pot of coffee, Rangoon crepes, a half-pound of either sausage, bacon, or corned beef hash with diced chiles, a Spanish omelette or eggs Benedict, a quart of milk, a chopped lemon for random seasoning, and something like a slice of Key lime pie, two margaritas, and six lines of the best cocaine for dessert… Right, and there should also be two or three newspapers, all mail and messages, a telephone, a notebook for planning the next twenty-four hours and at least one source of good music… All of which should be dealt with outside, in the warmth of a hot sun, and preferably stone naked.”
