"My God, it's a mansion!"

"It's a house."



Now, have a nice breakfast. And don't sell the house. I love this house.

That movie makes me ache with nostalgia. I love it so much.

I love this movie and I love the quote from Olga - "She's a very nice lady." How sweet.

Growing up in the midwest, I've always been intrigued by what New Yorkers called a 'house.' No grass, no room - a completely different sense of space.

The clip makes me hungry. Never saw the movie, but now I know what I can do with the rest of last night's bread. Wish we had some bacon.

"Wish we had some bacon."

Looked like liver, wasn't it?

"It's not a house . . . it's a home."

Too red? I thought it was a chile.

Here lies Walter Fielding. He bought a house, and it killed him.

I would love to see Althouse's Blogger page which has all her taglines. It must be two pages long!

"Eggs". Hehe.

I liked putting the sugar cubes in the celebrational fermented beverage.

You like putting Mentos in champagne, Ruth Anne? Didn't Mythbusters already do that?

I thought they were talking French for quite a while.

Monsieur Holot's Holiday is better, if you want French.

Snap out of it!

Bacon.

My house could fit in that kitchen! But I have a bigger yard.

Most interesting entry on the list:

Ann Althouse said...

I don't like that there's only 1 for "symbols." I just forgot I started that tag. I was going to merge it with "logo"/"metaphor," but the post in question wouldn't accept either.

Ann Althouse said...

Still, in the process of trying, I discovered the need for an "elephant" tag, and now I've got 24 for "elephant."

I love eggs cooked like that. We called them "bird's nests", without the red peppers.

Chip Ahoy said...

We called them "eggs in a hole". I thought it was a novelty for children. I make them infrequently just to feel like a kid.

rhhardin said...

Aftermath of egg explosion in egg poacher.

Two eggs in one egg pocket.

I've since figured out that 30% power for 5 minutes is all that's needed. Puncturing the yolk, furthermore, is unnecessary.

Supposedly, the standard of living has gone up in America, way up; but that kind of kitchen and even that kind of house (maybe a bit smaller overall) was standard blue collar, pre-WW II.

Eggs in a Frame. I didn't like fried eggs, my brother was the one who ate these.
