Let Me Tell You Where To Go

Right day?  Check!

Right blog?  Check!

Right drugs?  Check!

Earlier this week I screwed up.  With 3 blogs on the go, normally I'll try to have a post or two in the bank so I can schedule them ahead of time.  That's the route to go with my weekly Ponder, Pause and Pun caption post that runs Wednesdays.  I've usually picked the pic, cribbed the copy and scheduled it to run by Tuesday, sometimes Monday.

I thought I was so smart this week.  I'd had Tuesday's post and Wednesday's PPP all set to go and scheduled by Monday.

Imagine my surprise when I flipped on my computer Tuesday and saw both posts on the same day.  Holy poop.  And I couldn't do anything about removing PPP because by then Moooooog had left 3 or 4 captions.

So I moved Tuesday's post to the PPP slot on Wednesday and left PPP on Tuesday's blog.

Happily, lots of folks are leaving their captions so it's good to know they found the post even though it was slotted on the wrong day.

My excuse?  It's the drugs.  Remember that chemo thing?

Some days they'll throw me for a bit of a loop.

So listen.  If you tune in here one day and there's nothing new, hop on over to either dufusdownbeat for a musical profile or Slings And Arrows for a little political satire.

Between the three of these blogs you're bound to find something of interest.

Hey, not a bad little cross-promo, eh?

It's the drugs.

Sure. Blame me.


Are we married?

Moooooog: Pick up your socks.
Quirkyloon said…
Of course it's Mooooog35's fault.

Everything is HIS fault.
nonamedufus said…
Quirks: Everything?
ba_hutch said…
The funny thing is I thought it was Wednesday and it was only Tuesday... But my question is: Did you actually write today's post before you switched days, so then you had to put PPP on Tuesday?
Don said…
You're forgiven this once. You were right to hold moooooog responsible though. He usually has his finger stuck in something where it doesn't belong.
Me-Me King said…
Talk about the effect of meds....I read cross-promo as cross-dresser. Oh, boy!
nonamedufus said…
ba hutch: I wrote today's post yesterday.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Hell, I had to blame someone and Moooooog's such an easy target..
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: I haven't gone there yet, but you never know.
CatLadyLarew said…
OMG... what day is it? I thought today was Wednesday. Must be going batty from watching Moooooog's vlogs.
K a b l o o e y said…
Confused. Do you guys have a time machine or something? What is this "planning ahead" of which you speak?
AmyLK said…
Good drugs make for good cross-promos.
nonamedufus said…
CatLady: I don't know anymore.
nonamedufus said…
Kablooey: Time machine, yeah, that'd be great. Set the way back machine, Sherman.
nonamedufus said…
AmyLK: And according to Me-Me, good cross-dressing.
thinkinfyou said…
Three blogs!?! That is quite impressive. I have a hard time keeping up with one!
nonamedufus said…
thinkinfyou: Yeah, it keeps me bus...and sometimes a little confused!

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.
