Awards

TA - DAH!!!

Can you guess what these are? Melted frisbees? Coins a little kid left on the railway track? Pancakes left out in the sun? Nope, nope and nope. They were unveiled Thursday as the gold, silver and bronze medals for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Like 'em or not they're certainly different. Me? I like 'em. They're kinda cool.

Speaking of awards, another week, another awards day Saturday. Boy the captions were good this week. It was even tough picking Honourable Mentions. I was a little fuzzy on this pic myself. It was an arresting image, to say the least. But the winner screamed out at me like a siren. *rolls eyes*



This week's HM's go to:

Carl Vine said...

The L.A. Police, in an effort to soften their bad-boy image, are testing a fleet of prototype vehicles. Here, Officer Golstrom demonstrates a model with a convenient donut basket.

George was delighted to be accepted into the Barbie Police Academy. He gets his pink uniform next week.

Brian Miller said...

due to the budget crunch...police have downsized their pursuit vehicles...the reduction in crime is attributed to suspects laughing to death.


But our hands-up winner this week has got to be Joel Klebanoff who hit me where I live, with:

The Aylmer, Quebec police force has had to make a few cutbacks.


Little does Joel - or anybody else - know but the Aylmer police force is suffering through cutbacks and have been working without a contract for two years. They wear camouflage pants and jeans to express their displeasure.


So, Joel, congratulations dude. You be hangin' with dufus!!!




And now it's my pleasure to acknowledge a few recognitions from my peers this week. Frank Lee Mei Dear enjoyed my political satire posts Slings and Arrows and slipped me this Your Blog Is Fabulous award. Thanks, Frank!

ettarose at Sanity on Edge went MIA a couple of weeks ago. Turns out she had to go out of town to attend to some family matters. A few of us left comments expressing our concern and you know what she did. She gave us each a mention on her blog and an award of thanks for our metaphorical hugs. Cool, ettarose.


And finally, I won Kirsten's Mom Likes Me Best caption contest last week! Again!!!
For the background to these awards and links to these amazing sites just click on the link to my awards page on the right sidebar. Thanks, folks.

To my readers: I'm having a problem today with hyper-links. Got a new MacBookPro and I think I need a tutorial. Please bear with me.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
