Sunday Funnies

In Canada last week, editorial cartoonists had a field day with the problems facing Opposition Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff. He and his Quebec lieutenant had a falling out over who would run in one of the provincial ridings in the next election. The lieutenant resigned and allegations were made the leader was surrounding himself with 20-something political tykes from Toronto. Party members were questioning Ignatieff's leadership abilities.

Meanwhile, in the United States a couple of infamous politicians were releasing books last week and relations between America and Iran were definitely heating up in the wake of Iranian President Iamanutjob's appearance at the United Nations and rumours Iran was building nuclear weapons.

Imagine. Blago with a book deal. The little pip must be out of money. Look at the bright side Blago. It wasn't your money to begin with. As far as Obama and his "toughness" are concerned, I have a nine year old granddaughter that could stare him down. Ooooooh. Tough!

Wow, it appears that the publishers are a bit more lenient than they are here in the US. Although I don't know a thing about Canadian politics, I find it these cartoons very interesting. I particularly like #3.

Don: Haha, I guess you and the last cartoonist have the same view, hence the pillow. (Hey, nice review at Stumble. Thanks, man.)

Me-Me: Some of them cut close to the bone don't they.

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
