Speaking of black crunchy bits - weirdness of the day was this:

I was making more or less the same sandwich described above. When I  
put the eggs in the oil started to spit a bit. At roughly the same  
time a fly flew through the open kitchen door, buzzed around the pan  
a bit and was then shot down by a spit of hot oil - landed right on  
one of the eggs. I considered just lifting it off with a spoon  
thought better of it.

It was really quite freaky.
