Bun Vac – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

Bun Vac – Stream of Consciousness Saturday – SOCS

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 30/18

***

For today’s SOCS we have the word, ‘bun’, to write about. Thanks for the prompt, Linda!

***

The first thing I think of when I hear or see the word, ‘bun’, is the Bun Vac.

What’s a Bun Vac, you ask? It’s from a 2005  animated movie called, “Wallace and Grommit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit”.

This is a funny movie about Wallace, inventor extraordinaire, and his dog Grommit. He invents a type of vacuum that is used to suck up all the naughty rabbits that are eating the ‘veg’ in the garden.  The Bun Vac is reminds me of the kind of tubes you see at a drive-in bank place. You put something into the container, then put it in the pneumatic vacuum tube to be sucked into the main bank.

Anyway, we thought it was hilarious, and we’d threaten the cats with using the Bun Vac on them, if they were being naughty. Of course it was just a joke. We still have conversations about the Bun Vac, even today in certain circumstances.

So…now I’ve typed ‘bun’ a lot of times, and mentioned rabbits. Maybe that is what the prompt was about? Rabbits and bunnies for the Easter Sunday? Or maybe I could have talked about the type of hair-do shaped into a ‘bun’! I’ve never worn my hair that way, but think about it sometimes. Oh, maybe ‘bun’ is for the type of bread shaped into buns or rolls. There are all kinds of buns, like the bottom buns I sit on when I type these SOCS posts? haha!

Well, on that note, I wish y’all a happy weekend! 🙂

The Friday Reminder and Prompt for #SoCS March 19/16

Just the word egg today. I like eggs a lot. I can eat them for breakfast, for lunch, and for supper. I don’t get tired of them at all. I guess they’d be what I call comfort food. I like them any which way they are cooked. I’ve been hankering for some deviled eggs lately, too.

I had an egg this  morning. We went to IHOP, where they make eggs, and pancakes, and lots of other stuff that is good to eat. There is another restaurant we go to sometimes to eat eggs. It’s name is “The Egg and I”, and their food is good. I get an egg and Belgian waffle when I go there. Oh, bacon or ham, but not sausage. Restaurant coffee is good, too, so I get coffee at IHOP, but get a Coke at The Egg and I…I don’t know why.

My cousin has a small farm, where he raises chickens and turkeys. Sometimes we get eggs from there. They are all kinds of chickens, so the eggs are all kinds of sizes and colors. Here’s a picture of one of the chickens, and a flat of the eggs. 🙂

Here’s a funny story that happened back in 1979. I traveled to Japan right after Easter. The kids had some leftover candy Easter eggs, so I packed them in the suitcase. Well, when we went through customs their at the airport, it caused a commotion with the Japanese custom officials. The candy was wrapped in tin foil, and it had to be unwrapped and explained what these candy eggs were. I kept saying they are Easter eggs, but guess they didn’t understand? Finally, I just said ‘candy’, and that was ok then, and I got cleared to enter the country! Haha 😉

Well, that’s it for now about eggs. If I happen to remember some more about eggs, I’ll be sure to let you know!

Have a great weekend…and some eggs!
