30 Days of Photos - Day 25 - Poison


A Sausage Egg McMuffin and a coffee.

My breakfast of champions once a week or so.

I know. I know. I'm bad.

At least that's what Mrs D keeps telling me.

And as I pack on the pounds I come to realize...

This stuff's poison.

But it tastes so damn good.

What's your poison?  Ziva's got the linky thingy going so we can all find out together.

For the rare time that I go these days, its the Bacon & Eggs Bagel for me.
Ziva said…
Dufus, my friend, for some reason the linky thing links to your post for Day 7, I will fix it for you, but only if you share your poison with me, I've never tried a Sausage Egg McMuffin, and I really think I should.
Agent 54 said…
Coffee and Bacon could be my demise but, what a way to go.
nonamedufus said…
I've never tried that. Seriously.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, damn. I used the Day 7 link over on Mike's blog in a comment and then forgot to change it back to post on your linky thing. (I know that sounds worse than it is.)


Next time you travel this way you can visit and I'll treat you...to a McMuffin. (Don't they have McDonald's in Finland?)
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I like bacon too but my favourite breakfast meat has to be sausage.
nonamedufus said…
No, but if we own up to what we eat there a lot of it IS poison. How come poison tastes so good?
Tami Von Zalez said…
That is Mr. VZ's poison too from MIckey D's.
babs (beetle) said…
Anything that tastes wonderful, seems to be poison to us. So sad.
meleahrebeccah said…
Yeah, McDonalds food really IS poison. But it's too delicious to resist!
Ziva said…
Thank you, my dear. We do have McDonald's, but in all of Turku, there's only one, and it's nowhere near me. I hardly ever have McDonald's food...

The sneakiest sorts of poison do taste good. I nearly made my post all about sugar.
Nicky said…
Ugh. I hate Mickey D's. There are much better breakfasts out there, mon ami. Anything is better than McDonalds.
nonamedufus said…
If we stopped to think about what was in our favourite foods sometimes we'd never eat them again.
nonamedufus said…
Only one? Here there's one on almost every corner.
nonamedufus said…
Yes, there are. Like Burger King.
nonamedufus said…
A-ha. I like Mr VZ.
nonamedufus said…
It is ya know. And yet 5 minutes after eating it I regret it.
nonamedufus said…
Oo, sugar's bad. I'm diabetic.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, c'mon. Allow a guy his guilty pleasure. It's got cheese.
nonamedufus said…
Why do we do these things to ourselves?
It's been years since I had an Egg McMuffin. Probably because I haven't been able to stomach McDonalds for the past 20 years. Definitely poison to me.
nonamedufus said…
You know it's my guilty pleasure but if I don't stop soon these things are gonna kill me.
Cheryl said…
Just walking through the doors of Chez MickyD's is enough to make me feel as though I've been drenched in poison.
nonamedufus said…
I use the drive-thru.
But then there is that guy who eats nothing but mcdonalds and says he is healthy. I say go for it!
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
I've had two of those in my lifetime. And I'm still...uhm...a bit portly. We are who we are.
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
That's not cheese. It's plasticized milk product.
Cheryl said…
Well, there's your problem! It's not the food, it's that you're not working hard enough for it.
Jackal said…
nom nom. burp
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, yeah, yeah. You sound like my mother.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, God, no I couldn't do that! Bleck!
nonamedufus said…
Two? You couldn't stop at one? A-ha!
nonamedufus said…
Say excuse me! Didn't your mother teach you any manners?
nonamedufus said…
Okay, but it's close. Like a cheese relative or something.
mike said…
Good choice for poison, but McD's is an insult to Irish cuisine everywhere. Or is that Scottish? I can never remember.
nonamedufus said…
The Scots have a cuisine? You call haggis a cuisine?
Cheryl P. said…
Yum, I rarely eat fast food but I do love Egg McMuffins. At 300 calories you could do far worse for breakfast.
Lauren said…
I'm glad you didn't get a close up of the sausage and eggs. Just the thought it is making me hungry.
nonamedufus said…
Only 300 calories? Hell, I'll have two.
nonamedufus said…
I have another angle... Are you hungry now?
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Sugar's bad for anyone. It's just a lot worse for you!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, yes, indeed. I'm already sweet enough.
Lauren said…
I'm getting hungry and thirsty. Thanks for the close up. : ) What's for dessert?
nonamedufus said…
I don't do dessert. How about an ice cream bar?

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
