Who Is Everyday Goddess And Why Is She Saying Those Nice Things About Me?

This was quite an eventful weekend for nonamedufus. First, the lovely and talented Everyday Goddess visited my humble abode Saturday and left me an award. Yeah, imagine that.  This is not a meme. I don't have to answer 400 questions about myself and forward it on to 800 fellow bloggers or anything like that.

In EG's words:

I follow a lot of blogs, and often I come across posts that I feel deserve to be read by as many people as possible. So I give an award for a blog well done. And the link for others to click on.

And indeed she did. In a post on her blog Saturday she passed on the Goddess Post Of The Week Award to me and a couple of other bloggers.

Cool, eh? And it moves! Well it sure moved me. EG passed this award on to me for my post from Friday last week One Pill Makes You Larger. Thanks, EG. I'm honoured.

The other piece of news I wanted to share with you is an upcoming guest post I've been asked to undertake.

Recognize this?


It's the masthead from the blog of my good buddy and Hattiesburg, Mississippi native Don of Beyond Left Field. Don's one of the funniest bloggers I know and I'm quite honoured to be asked to pinch hit for him. That in itself is an award. We visit each other and leave comments every day. We've been exchanging barbs (and Sues and Carols) for a couple of years now. If you've never been over to Don's I strongly urge you to get on over there...but wait till I'm subbing for him next week, eh.

So I want to thank Don for asking me to do this. It should be fun. Maybe I can get him to do an exchange and do a guest post here! 

And let me thank you both for giving me something to write about today, heh, heh.

So now you're all caught up on the latest dufus developments. You're welcome.

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…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
