This Is No Silent Night

At Christmas many folks are moved to lift up their voices in song and sing traditional carols. Well, not around here. It's Christmas Carnival Week over at Yule (Howl) Log Dot Com and I've decided to rewrite one of those traditional carols and try to mention as many of my favourite blogger buds as is possible. Think of it as my way of wishing you guys a Merry Christmas. And, hey, it's way cheaper than a gift.

This is No Silent Night
by nonamedufus

This is no silent night, holy night
This is Stuff and Nonsense, yeah right
About Zombies, she makes me swoon
Out Beyond Left Field

This is no silent night, holy night
The Offended Blogger is quite a sight
Debbie Does Drivel from heaven afar
Christ, Screaming Me-Me me scorns
Christ, Screaming Me-Me me scorns

This is no silent night, holy night
The Unfinished Rambler is getting tight
Is Ettarose's Sanity On Edge?
Are those Nanny Goats in Panties up on the ledge?
Jesus, I Probably Don't Like You

This is no silent night, holy night
Knucklehead's calm, his dome's kinda bright
Too Many Mornings I do my thing
Make the blog rounds, I like Of Cabbages and Kings
And Cat Lady Without The Cats

This is no silent night, holy night
There are two bloggers that give me a fright
What the hell is this thing - Mental Poo?
He writes funny stuff, does funny pictures too
Don't confuse him with the Mind Of Spaz
Don't confuse him with the Mind of Spaz


I'd like to take this opportunity to wish these guys, and all who drop by, read and comment here the very best for the holidays. May the new year grant you health, happiness and - of course - humour.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.

Who spoke to his enemies in disguise
