    Sometimes it's 2 pop tarts, a bowl of cereal, biscuits, cinnamon rolls, chorizo and egg breakfast tacos, or 2 eggs, hash browns, sausage, and pancakes.

    It all depends on what day it is, and how much time I have to eat... On wednesdays, though, it's usually the eggs, hash browns, sausage, and pancakes...

    Speaking of vegemite.... One day me and my friends were listening to Men at Work (hey.. Men at Work are awesome :) ) and noticed the line

    "He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich"

    None of us knew what vegemite was, but http://www.vegemite.com.au answered that. (oh yeah, go there, and listen to the song. its funny). We decided to go out and try some. We had to go to two stores to find it, but we found it eventually. Wow... that stuff must take some getting used too. None of us were too crazy about it. Anyway... anyone who hasn't tried vegemite should try it sometime.

    I think the reason non-Aussies don't llike vegiemite is thay don't know how to eat it. You have to spread it really lightly. If you're putting it on toast, spread it so the toast still looks like toast, but looks like slightly burnt toast. Spread it much thicker and your head may explode. :)

    Thats probably it. I didn't even try it on toast. I just stuck a spoon in there and ate some. And yes, I think my head almost did explode. :)

    Korean ramen with fish and seaweed or miso soup or rice with fish and seaweed.

    Aren't large doses of vegemite good for patching things--the roof, the road, a tyre? :)

    if I have time, I'll go to the gas station pick up a bento. It's basically a small little plate of three small chicken drumsticks, a hotdog, salted cabbage, all over rice.... if you live in hawaii and/or japan, it's a normal thing....that and a cold Starbucks Mocha Frappucinno

    No breakfast for me, unless you count dry cereal at 6 PM.

    No offense, but VegeMite? Ewww. My Australian Cousin and his family visited and he smothered his toast in that stuff. I couldn't even be in the same room with it. Just thinking about it makes me kinda quesy. But then again, I am kinda picky.

    What is that stuff anyway?

    Nah - the thicker the better. Wimp...

    :D

    Then, you can mention the age-old battle of Good Vs. Evil (in other words, Vegemite Vs. Marmite).

    And Vegemite still reigns supreme....

    I can't say that any time I'd gone to buy boxed lunches in Japan, I ever saw one with hotdog over rice (hotto doggu donburi?) but obviously, I was going to the wrong places.

    I was eating things like rice with fish or curry and vegetables. However, a Japanese friend in America once made me hotdog o-sushi. :D

    This is the usual combo...

    * Some kind of tea, black (no milk/cream), sugar (not in mint, however)
    * Rice or corn chex w/banana or strawberry atop (no sugar)

    On weekends, I'll substitute (for cereal) some kind of ham, bacon, or sausage from:

    http://nueske.com/

    with toast and honey or peanut butter, though a good many Sundays have been spent here:

    I think it depends where you are! ROund here, vegemite is nowhere to be found, Marmite is King! And they say you either love it or you hate, I have to say I'm the exception to this rule! I'm impartial!

    Today, I had me some Kroger brand cheerios! Gaa, those things are foul. Like dirty, wet sawdust in your mouth. Most mornings are better (until I go back to college food :().
