Sunday Funnies

Well, the H1N1 hysteria continued unabated in Canada last week, fed by stories that Canadian professional sports teams had jumped the queue and gotten their vaccinations ahead of so-called "at-risk" Canadians, not to mention the general public.

Oh, yeah, and in case anyone missed it, Prince Charles and his wife Camilla undertook a Royal Tour across the country.

I'm still waiting for people to start calling H1N1 Hiney. Those number ones could easily pass for capital i's.

I like the sound of it too. The Hiney Flu. And it's "spot-on" in the description.

Quirks: Yeah, some have said she looks like the south end hiney of a north-bound horse. Oh, you're talking about the H1N1 cartoons?
Don said…
Yeah. Some of the same stories are circulating in the states. One of the latest is that federal inmates in some corrections facilities will be getting their doses before sick citizens in the same towns can have a dose.

I loved the Prince Charles and Camilla cartoon. Question, what do they call Camilla? Is she the Princess of Wales II? That has always confused me.

Don: Hey, we're discussing the pros and cons of H1N1 vaccinations - pro-athletes and con-victs!

Me-Me: Some call her a horse, but officially she's the Duchess of Cornwall.

you know, you wouldn;t even know Charles adn Camilla have been in Canada (other than through blogs) as no one is covering it on the major news here. That's ok though. I think they are rather ghastly royals anyway! Hardly Royal to me but then since the Queen, few have been.

...mmm...: Don't get me started on the uselessness of the Royals

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…
