Pause Ponder and Pun

Well, we've recovered from our celebrations from last week marking the 50th anniversary of our little caption contest and we're all set to carry on.

Here's this week's pic. Let's see you wrestle with a caption.

See you Saturday with our winners.

The horses drew straws for which jockey they got to have. Today just wasn't #14 Storm Chaser's day.

"And it's Igor in the lead, with Julia a close second, followed by ... Oh, wait! Karl has veered way westward and has taken himself out of the race! Oh, race fans what a day it has been in the Hurricane Triple Crown!"

(yeah, yeah ...I'm obsessed.)
Somewhere, there's a 90 pound guy preparing to wrestle someone four times his size.

When the Oshima stable recruited the dim-witted, yet enthusiastic new sumo trainee, it didn't occur to the hefty lad that he'd wandered into the wrong type of stable. Poor Akinori is about to massively lose face when he discovers his mistake.

With the economy and job market as it is, Hiroto had to take the first available job he could find. Coincidentally, later that day horse # 14 realized that being unemployed wasn't all that bad after all.

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.
