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. :)

Crap! Not you too. Everyone is going off for the holidays. I don't get it...can't people eat turkey, drink eggnog, and blog?...ok, ok, have a merry whatever is appropriate, see you sooner rather than later I hope.
Blogland feels so sad this time of year...sigh...I thought this was supposed to be the most wonderful time of the fricken year?
Don said…
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)

Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...

I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
