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 - 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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
