St Paddy Pauses, Ponders and Puns

Do you know what day it is, today?

The top o' the morning to ya!  Happy, St. Paddy's Day!!!

If you're remotely Irish you'll be doing one of several things today.  You'll be wearing green.  You'll be drinking green beer.  Or you'll be turning green late tonight from all that green beer!

In the meantime, take a look at this week's picture of our girls in green and leave a caption.  You've got until Saturday to come up with a winner!

And if you're still in a captioning mood, drop by Mad-Mad O'Margo's where she's got the second-best captioning contest on the interwebs.


The laughing was short-lived, as Angela, attempting to amuse her friend with her flatulence, discovered that green beer gives her the runs.

If interested, caption contest over at our place as well!

It's always funny until someone loses a green sock.

Julie was immediately out when she realized that 'All the ugly girls throw your feet into the air' was not preceded with 'Simon Says.'
Can you see my maxi pad through these jeans??

Here's hoping you blow green farts on St. Patrick's Day! Now, light 'em up!

Huh? That's a "real" picture. That's no fun. Go back and get one with snot running from some old lady's nose or something. You know. Something with some class.

Mary Pat is about to find out the hard way that combining green beer and Alli "may" result in oily bowel movements and the inability to control them.

Do these socks make my butt look fat?

That's not a sock, that's gangrene. Well, if you can't laugh at necrosis, what can you laugh at?

Top of the mornin' ta me, ya say? Well seyer, to that I have to say "'an tha res' o' the day to meself! ;)

Anyway, onto the captioning!

"Hey look, a green sock and a white one!"

To which Sally answers her with "Guess what, I have that exact same pair in My sock drawer!"

"Yay, we're sock sisters!"

When Claire went green, she did a pretty half-assed job of it. She didn't even buy two socks.

...and the rainbow went in here, right up my ass! who wants to look for the pot of gold?
Tammy and Faye got drunk on St. Patrick's Day and totally mistook the old Irish proverb about the wind being at your back as a challenge to blow out the candles by farting. Tammy won.

After drinking too much green beer, Maudlin watched her right leg slowly turn green, while Dorthea laughed at a leprechaun's jokes, despite the fact she kept mistaking him for a seat cushion.

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.
