Pause Ponder and Park

Some people will do anything to beat you to a parking spot! Or so it would appear.  Let's see how our caption crew did this week.

Another woman attempts to parallel park.



Texters accidently create the first commuter emoticon.



Here I am, stuck in the middle with you.
Me-Me King



There's a reason why they put instructions for trailer hitches in the south.


You'll notice Me-Me King has deigned us with her presence this week. And I only just wrote that post saying how much I missed her. Good to have you back skulking about Me-Me.

Our winner this week is someone you all know and love. My brother from Toronto. I know, I know, Toronto. *spits* Don't hold it against him.


I could have sworn I took the Smart Car this morning
Whitey


Congrats bro, you be hangin' with the dufus. Well metaphorically. You can't really be hangin' with me 'cause you live in *spits* Toronto.


You owe me!

Thanks to all for playing along. Next week get here early. You wouldn't want someone else to take your spot.

00dozo: I couldn't let a week "pass" without mentioning you, Doze.

Quirks: Yeah, it's a nasty habit. But it only seems to happen when someone mentions *spits* Toronto. I'll try to "steer" away from it.

So much for the "always a bridesmaid, never a bride" thing. Now what am I going to do with all these dresses?

Thanks Big Dufe.

Whitey: Hey congrats Whitey. How are things in *spits* in Toronto? Hey, I don't want to skirt the issue but maybe you should open up a dress shop.

Okay - so what's up with the "*spits* Toronto" thingy? This coming from a former Torontonian himself??

(Damn *farts* Quebeckers.)

00dozo: C'mon, everyone knows that everyone across the country hates *spits* Toronto. It's like one of the top three things we complain about in Canada: the weather, my wife has a headache, and *spits* Toronto.

And I thought it was just us Montrealers!

Congratulations Whitey!

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…

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.
