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.

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.

A scene from the Adult Diaper testing lab.
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 - 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.
