I needed a hearty breakfast this morning.
So, I had some wine last night. You know, just a little. With dinner. I'm not much of a drinker really- it was just a splash. Or two. Or...uh...a dash more than that. A taste was all. Somehow, by the end of the night several bottles were gone. Huh. Well lookie there. Who did that?
Let the record show that I wasn't the only one...you know...tasting the wine. The yummy drinkey wine.

Oh, and I should also say that after wine we had coffee. Right, coffee. Brilliant, Allie. Not just any coffee though- Greek coffee. Yummy drinkey Greek coffee.
So then I tried to go to bed- which was shockingly easy...until 4:00 am rolled around, and then it became much harder. Wide awake. Blink, blink, ba-blinkblink. Does wine give caffeine a 6 hour lag time? Something was annoyingly amiss, because I spent the next 3 hours trying to lie still in between neurotically uncovering and covering up based on my spazzy nocturnal temperature regulation- which happens no matter how much wine I am wont to imbibe.
This morning my delicately churning stomach quickly alerted me that I was in need of a more substantial breakfast than my usual 4 slices of turkey bacon and a piece of toast with butter. The alert was something like, "WHAT THE EFF WAS THAT, WOMAN!?!" What I really wanted was a delicious 6-inch ham, egg and cheese sandwich on white bread, toasted, with tomato, lettuce and Southwest Sauce from (where else) Subway. What I didn't have was a car or a Subway. So that was out. But what I did have was one lonely egg begging to be relieved of it's meager existence, 2 pieces of turkey bacon, shredded Colby Jack cheese, Wonderbread (don't judge), a toaster, Thousand Island dressing and some ground cayenne pepper.

Sandwich annihilation commenced twenty seconds after this picture was taken, and once every crumb was obscenely inhaled I felt much more stable. Good thing, because it's pretty outside and I need to walk to the store to get more eggs- I have a feeling I'll need one in the morning.
