|10:31 pm - Toast !|
Why is it so hard for hotels to provide decent toast for breakfast ?
In my world, toast spends approximately 6 milliseconds going from the toasting device to my plate, whereupon it is slathered in probably-unhealthy amounts of room-temperature butter - which promptly melts in very nicely and makes for a good toast experience.
In HotelWorld[tm], though, toast is either left lying around for seconds - possibly minutes! - before it reaches my plate, or the butter is chilled (wtf?), or the bread is wimpy thin stuff that makes rubbish toast anyway. The Hinckley-whatever-they're-called-this-month is one of the worst offenders, of course - I've seen people resort to propping their toast on top of a cup of tea in an attempt to get it up to a decent temperature (doesn't really work, though, it ends up all soggy).
Current Mood: puzzled
Funnily enough, I believe the toast was the least of people's worries regarding the food at the Hinkley-whatnot :P

The toast is hotter on the other side of the planet...
Ha! This is probably the best incentive you will ever have to return to Adelaide!
(Have you ever come across the sort of B&B that will make a big batch of toast at 7 a.m. and line it all up in toast racks? If you come down to breakfast at 8:30, they will proudly give you a rack of 7 a.m. toast and expect you to be pleased at not having to wait for your toast to be cooked. I think the toast rack is the worst invention since sliced bread.)

I'm wondering what it will be like at Redmeption this year. I don't remember it being too bad in '05, but I got spoilt by the hospital where they were actually quite good at toast, although for the first few weeks ( at least when I was well enough to pay attention) I chose porridge rather than ordinary cereal as I don't get on well with raw milk; intolerance rather than allergy, fortunately, so not actually dangerous, but still annoying. I shall be on the unhealthy meat-based breakfasts, by the look of things.
