Breakfast Technology Is Failing Us!

I have been keeping odd hours as of late, and my body has been reacting in a number of odd ways. While driving around late this afternoon, I found myself craving McDonald's breakfast . Sure, I can do to Denny's or IHOP or some other hash house connected to a national chain that caters to folks who are contantly on the lookout for breakfast food (I figure, old folks, truckers and stoners mostly). But, I don't want to go to a sit down restaurant to have breakfast. All I want is a Sausage McMuffin with egg at 2pm. Why is that so hard to achieve? We can put a man on the moon, but I can't get a breakfast sandwich after 10:30 am?

Although I have been eating much healthier lately, I do have the occasional desire to eat something that would be so incredibly bad for me. Every so often, I crave that feeling of decadent naughtiness that accompanies eating something you know is going to start clogging your arteries. It's like giving Death the middle finger. My dream is to have a Quarter Pounder with Cheese topped with one of those egg and ham thingies from an Egg McMuffin. I want a Buger King double cheeseburger served on a croissant from a Crossanwich. No matter what time of day it is, they've got all the necessary ingredients in the kitchen somewhere. But, no, I can't have that, becuase they don't serve breakfast after 10:30.


  1. AND... Burger King doesn't "Do it Your Way" when they play that game either.. I wonder if anyone has pointed that out to them... misleading advertising and somesuch...

    That said.. it is 4 p.m. -ish and a sausage and cheese croissant sounds yummy...

    No eggs though... blech.

  2. A friend mentioned to me today that, upon ordering from McDonald's last night, they were asked if they would like an Egg McMuffin as well. I'm jealous, but I'm hoping this might be an indicator of what is to come.
