Have you ever wondered where this idea really originated? from?

As you can see from this jacket cover it was originally a novel! Go figure!!
Breakfast of Champions, or Goodbye Blue Monday is a 1973 novel by the American author Kurt Vonnegut . Set in the fictional town of Midland City, it is the story of "two lonesome, skinny, fairly old white men on a planet which was dying fast." One of these men, Dwayne Hoover, is a normal-looking but deeply deranged Pontiac dealer and Burger Chef franchise owner who becomes obsessed with the writings of the other man, Kilgore Trout , taking them for literal truth. Trout, a largely unknown pulp science fiction writer who has appeared in several other Vonnegut novels, looks like a crazy old man but is in fact relatively sane. As the novel opens, Trout journeys toward Midland City to appear at a convention where he is destined to meet Dwayne Hoover and unwittingly inspire him to run amok .

So there you have it!

Good morning Keet

had the hungry Horrors

That is interesting about the book having that name before the cereal I wonder if General mills got permission to use it back then LOL


well I still have that nasty cramp in my right foot so I will try the bike again I think I will stop the walking for a while see if I can get whatever is bothering my foot to go away. also I am not in a lot of pain it is an uncomfortable feeling more than pain


Breakfast
3oz orange
1/2 C bran flakes
1/2 C organic oats
2.4 oz strawberries
1 C black coffee


Dinner plans
boneless skinless Chicken breast steamed red potato
spinach or broccoli side salad

Hey there Keet, yep nothing wrong with sleeping till 11 on a Saturday, especially if you work.

Weigh in - 185 YAY

Brkfst - 1 cup cantelope, 1 cup joe

snack at 11 today at church, 1 plain cake donut, 1/2 cup joe

Lunch - late will be about 3 today - 2 oz of deer meat, veggies and a salad.

I been slacking on the calories havn't been reaching 1200.

Been walking my 2 miles. I will walk it today too, I won't give myself a day off. Sitting in church for 2 1/2 hours is enough rest. Ha.
AusGram -SW - 194; CW -187; GW -150 for now, will lower that WHEN I reach it.

Sorry Tweety. Vonnegut copied Wheaties, not the other way around. The Wheaties slogan was created in 1927.

I was up .2 yesterday, but down .6 today for a 0.4 loss for the last two days of the week. It may seem nitpicky to count decimals but I seem to be settling into a 1 1/2 lb weekly loss which is perfect as far as I can see. This past week was 1.6 lbs down. Yippee! I can dream that by the end of the year I'll be at a normal weight. Today is 213.4 but next year I want to see the 160's. I am doing it!

The Plan is to eat exactly the same menu as yesterday in exactly the same amount.

Did my walk today and just as I got out to the buffalo fence it started to sprinkle. I put my coat over my head and kept going. Course, once I get out there, I don't have a choice but to keep going if I want to get home. LOL
