Sunday Funnies

Just a quick word to you conspiracy theorists, Mayan calendar followers, or simply superstitious saps. Did you notice the date today? It's the 10th day of the 10th month of the 10th year. Yeah. How about that. But I'll bet what you didn't know is that 10-10-10 is the Canadian metric version of the number of the beast. Uh-huh. Now would I lie to you guys?




Hey, wait! Look at this...


Everyday Goddess gave me her Post of the Week Award. Cool, huh? It's the second one she's given me inside of a month. And what makes this one so special is it comes on the first anniversary of her giving out these weekly awards. She liked my That's Nuts post last week. Thanks EG. And congratulations on your milestone.

A friend less mathematically challenged than yours truly posted on Facebook today that 10.10.10 is 42 in binary. Another friend pointed out that this is the meaning of life (at least according to Douglas Adams, but who am I to disagree). NOW we're talking conspiracies!

I would like to add, though, that if today is the meaning of life, I am slightly disappointed.

Cruella: I'm sticking to the metric version of the number of the beast. It's funnier than 42 in binary.

I just looked at my clock and it was 10/10/10 10:10:26. Twenty-stinkin'-six. Dammit. Now I have to wait another thousand years and my memory is likely to be no better then.

Congrats on the Post of the Week Award! But you really shouldn't try to explain the metric system to Americans, they might get hurt trying to figure it out.

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.
