WORDLESS WEDNESDAY: “The waiting is the hardest part…”

by Katie Pizzuto on May 4, 2011

in Wordless Wednesday

OK, so this is the first time that Wordless Wednesday is not so….uhh…wordless. It’s time for another Gonzo Guest Post contest and it starts here. The prize? Glad you asked. The winner will get a bottle of wine (chosen by me) delivered to them for free by Wine Chateau. I’ll get a bottle of the same wine and we’ll both review the wine. Your chance, folks, to show off your skills. So exactly how sharp is that wit of yours, and how deep is the music memory bank?! Let’s find out. I chose a Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers lyric as a title to this Wordless Wednesday post because, honestly, the hardest part of bread baking is waiting once you pull that beautiful, warm, incredible-smelling loaf out of the oven…but have you got a better lyric? Drop a comment with a song lyric that YOU would have used as the title to this image and the winner gets to go gonzo. Deal?

Lyrics from BREAD:

Maybe I’m a crazy
But I just can’t live without you
Baby, I’m a want you
Baby, I’m a need you


2 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

Holy crap…great start!!!


3 Linsey May 4, 2011

i get up in the mornin’ bout six AM,
have a little jelly have a little jam,
take a piece of bread put it in the slot,
push down the lever and the wires gets hot,
i get toast.


4 Linsey May 4, 2011

Does it help that I was so drooling over that bread that I made my own today …


5 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

It helps my ego, but not your chances of winning 😉 By the way, name of song and artist?!?!


6 Linsey May 5, 2011

Bob and Tom – toast song

I was looking for Paul Youngs toast song (remember that from my youngster days) but found this one instead and liked that lyric section


7 JN Eggerman May 4, 2011

A bottle of red, a bottle of white
It all depends upon your appetite


8 PintofStout May 4, 2011

Patty cake, patty cake, Baker’s man?
(Sorry, my 9 MO like the rolling and patting)
How about:
“The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind…”


9 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

You guys are all killing it…gonna be tough!!!!


10 Joe May 4, 2011

The Fat Boys said it best in their hit, “All You Can Eat”: I’ma stuff my face to a funky beat.


11 Subdaimon May 4, 2011

Gotta go with Floyd…

Breathe, breathe in the air
Don’t be afraid to care
Leave, but don’t leave me

Nothing better than a kitchen filled with the smell of fresh baked bread! And with that I’m off to the bakery.


12 castello May 4, 2011

Make my eggs a medium rare,,,,,,over easy with my steak. I’m gonna buy you a farm in Texas gal if it takes every cent I make.


13 SacramentoCharlie May 4, 2011

Mouth is alive with juices like wine and I’m hungry like the wolf


14 coupe 60 May 4, 2011

I may ban you from the forums for going Duran Duran here….

on second thought my identification of the group may not cast the best of lights on me… carry on Charlie


15 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

I dunno they get a lot of flack, but I dig DD…Come Undone is a great tune. And the lyric fits beautifully…


16 JN Eggerman May 4, 2011

I could feel hot flames of fire roaring at my back
As she disappeared, but soon she returned
In her hand was a bottle of wine, in the other, a glass


17 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

Better than your first one….LOVE IT!


18 Steve Jones May 4, 2011

You got to make it by yourself
You know you got to make it by yourself
I’ll be your friend and I’ll lend a helping hand
But you got to try and help yourself before I can

From the song “You Got to Make it by Yourself” by Bread


19 Steve Jones May 4, 2011

And their more famous Make It With You…

Hey have you ever tried,
Really reaching out for the other side?
I maybe climbing on rainbows
But, baby here goes.
Dreams there for those who sleep,
Life is for us to keep,
And if you’re wond’ring
What this song is leading to
I want to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.
No, you don’t know me well,
‘N’ ev’ry little thing only time will tell,
But you believe the things that I do.
And we’ll see it through.
Life can be short or long,
Love can be right or wrong,
And if I chose the one
I’d like to help me through,
I’d like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.
Baby you know that
Dreams they’re for those who sleep,
Life is for us to keep
And if I chose the one
I’d like to help me through,
I’d like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.


20 Katie Pizzuto May 4, 2011

Uhhh, a little long for a post title, dude, but the other one is primo!!


21 Steve Jones May 4, 2011


I’d like to make it with you
I really think that we can make it girl.

looked so sparse.

That’s why I posted the other one first.


22 Steve Jones May 4, 2011

I’m on a roll now…

Local Rockford band Cheap Trick (with on minor apology as I used one synonym in there):

I want you to want me.
I need you to knead me.
I’d love you to love me.
I’m beggin’ you to beg me.


23 julius May 4, 2011

From the world of Gospel Music:


I am the Bread of Life
All who eat this Bread will never die
I am God’s love revealed
I am broken that you might be healed


24 grape_ape May 4, 2011

I don’t mind stealing bread
From the mouths of decadence
But I can’t feed on the powerless
When my cup’s already overfilled

(Huger Strike – Temple of the Dog)


25 Steve2inLA May 5, 2011

As a bread baker (and sourdough at that) I sometimes wait up to 2 days to cut into a loaf of fresh baked. That said, all I can say, musically is :

Anticipation, anticipation
Is makin’ me late
Is keepin’ me waitin’

(with thanks to Carly Simon)


26 JN Eggerman May 5, 2011

But it’s all right ’cause it’s midnight
And I got two more bottles of wine


27 JN Eggerman May 5, 2011

It’s not the barley or the wheat
It’s not the oven or the heat
That makes this bread so good to eat
It’s the needing and the sharing that makes the meal complete

JR Cash

Mamas little baby loves shortenin’ shortenin’
Mama’s little baby loves shortenin’ bread


29 coupe 60 May 5, 2011

I can’t believe of all the “Bread” lyrics…Nobody has used “Everything I own”

Cause that loaf in the oven looks so good that:

I will give everything I own,
I’ll give my life, my heart, my home
I will give everything I own
Just to have you back again.


30 coupe 60 May 5, 2011

Ok, here is my latest submission:

Do right, use your head, everybody must be fed
Get together, break some bread, yes together, that’s what I said
Do what you like

From, “Do what you like” by Blind Faith….with the song writing credit going to ….

wait for it…
Wait for it…

that’s right, “Ginger Baker”


31 Katie Pizzuto May 6, 2011

devious you are….just devious….


32 Katie Pizzuto May 6, 2011
