Pause Ponder and Pun


Another Wednesday, another picture of silly women in odd clothes, hanging out together. And I don't think it's a Tupperware party.

So you tell me what you think's going on here.

Don't "waist" a minute.

We'll see you back here Saturday.

Bye for now.

"You put the wiggle here, you put the jiggle out, you put the wiggle and it gets shaken all about! You do the Jiggle Pokey and it turns you all around...that's what it's all about! clap, clap"

I've no idea what's going on, but a friend of mine had one of those gizmos in college (c. 1982). As I recall it made a lot of noise and made her hard to understand when she tried to talk while using it.

A group of ladies doing their belly exercises on a machine that was common in it's time for "reducing body fat" by vibration. Didn't do much though, but was a big fad for a while.

For some reason I keep thinking of vibrators when I see that photo. So in order to keep your blog's G-rating intact, maybe I shouldn't play along today. - G

"The FDA recently approved the use of the belt sander as a tool for waist reduction. Side effects may include blood and tissue loss and extreme pain. May cause scarring."

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…
