Pause Ponder and Pogos


You guys really know how to lay on the mustard. We had some great captions this week.

I really liked Jeremy from We Took The Bait's comment:

Margaret Cho's boyfriend, Frank, prepares to
"wow" the audience with
his impersonation of Mikhail Gorbachev.


Donnie from Beyond Left Field lived up to his blog title with:

Lady, you've got the ketchup right, but your way off with the mustard!


And Frank at I Don't Give a Damn did manage to give:

Janice, for one, welcomes our new giant-hotdog overlords.


But it was 00dozo at When I Reach who went for the gold with:

Originally, Kim had doubts about internet
dating services but exclaimed,
"Unlike the ketchup,
he really knows where to put the mustard!"

Hot dog, 00dozo, you're this week's big wiener. You be hangin' with the the dufus. Woo-hoo! Congratulations.

Donnie: Hey, sex sells...unless you're Charlie Sheen, then you're looking someone who sells sex.

Everyday Goddess: Oh, we've always got great captions from folks. You should stop by next week and join in.
Thanks for the mention, Dufus!

Frank's impersonation of Gorbachev would have been dead on if he'd replaced the mustard bottle with a fifth of vodka.

Congrats to 00dozo and the hono(u)rable mentions!

Jeremy: Well done guy. Excellent point about Gorbachev.
00dozo said…
Thanks, dufus!! To be honest, I thought it was too wordy and I really liked Jeremy's too.

Thanks everyone, and congrats to the honourables!

Congrats to OOdozo! And a big burp to all the honorable mentions!

Why is it when I see the moniker 00dozo I always think of that Styx song:

Domo Domo Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto!

hee hee?

Quirks: Well now I don't feel so bad. I guess it's safe to admit I always think of:

Mairzy doats and dozy doats and liddle lamzy divey
A kiddley divey too, wouldn't you?

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.
