Paws, Ponder and Pun

There were a lot of good captions this week.  It was hard to narrow the submissions down.  Thanks to all who played along.

Moooooog had me chuckling with:

Look at the crazy guy wearing a purple shirt.


Ziva had a good one with:

E.T. knew he was different when he hit puberty and all the girls ever wanted to do was phone home.


Skye had a zinger with:

Look what happened to me.  She said it was Love Potion #9.  How am I supposed to get any lovin' looking like this?


But it was Mike at Too Many Mornings who came through with this week's winner:


The more Jenny talked to Zorax, the more he seemed out of this world.



Congrats, Mike.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week.  Well done!

Hell yeah, honorable mentions two weeks in a row, that's almost as good as winning, right? No? Crap.

Congrats Mike, awesome job on the caption!

Jayne: It's the most Mike's written in 2 weeks!
nonamedufus said…
Me-Me: He done, dudn't he?
Don said…
Yea Mike. So Jenny is her name huh? What's her friends name. The one talking to Borat.
nonamedufus said…
Don: Always wondering if they've got a friend, eh Don?
I actually woke up this morning thinking, "Oh, crap. I had a better caption for NoName's contest." Then I resigned myself to losing again, because I don't think I've ever won one of these caption contests, and deservedly so. The caption I dreamed up was, "Nobody was surprised when Jenny fell for Zorax. She'd always been attracted to men with foreign accents."

Anyway, thanks NoName! I'm starting my day with a big smile. :)

CatLady: I am an alien.
Quirky: Ouch! Can you do that again, butt lower? ;)
Jayne: I used to be a writer. Lately, though, I'm more of a photographer.
Don: I think it's Natalie. And, like you, I can't decide which of the Scandanavian sisters has the worse date.

Mike: Congratulations, guy.

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…

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.
