Silent Blog

Silent blog, oh my God
Noname's gone, and we nod
Round yon Christmas break he snores
Holy shit will he come back for more?
All he wants is some peace
All he wants is some peace.

Silent blog, I don't jest
Bloggers quake 'cause I'll rest
Cut off from the internet star
Mrs. Dufus sings Alleluia
Christ, my readers'll be bored
Christ, my readers'll be bored.

Silent blog, no posts done
A month yeah, I'll be gone
No posts will beam from my holy blog
I'll be too busy drinking grog
Stay tuned for my return
Stay tuned for my return.

Merry (insert appropriate ethnic/religious reference here) everyone. Thanks for stopping in throughout 2010. We'll see you in the new year.

Hey you! No seriously, I was lying in bed last night and then something hit me in the head, and it dawned on me - Holy Shit! - I haven't checked on him in awhile!!! A LONG while!!! And then, I had to think. What was that blog again? What was his name? Grumpy Old Man? No...Dirty Old Man? No...Something to do with Clowns? No...Jokester something or other? No. Finally, I gave up, thinking, I'll figure it out sooner or later, when I'm not trying so hard...

So, then, just now, I remembered. :)

It only took me nearly 24 hours, plus what, a year or two?

Glad you're okay. Merry Christmas to me. :)

I echo Sandra's thoughts, but that said,

MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone! (And your religious or non-religious day off for celebration or what every you do during this season as well!!)

Hurry back!!

Brilliant poem (as usual, dammit).

Merry Christmas.

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!"

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 …
