Pause, Ponder and Pun


Athletes are a special breed. Like this guy.
I knew soccer players had leather balls but I didn't expect a demonstration!
Are you a winner?
Be a player.
The goal is to leave us your best caption.
Are you game?
We'll field all comers.
Try and kick it up a notch.
We'll score the winner Saturday.

I'm a spectator this week. Should be fun. If I don't have something come to me instantly, there's no hope...

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
