Pause Ponder and Poseurs

I think we scared off some of our captioners with our picture this week. But there were some funny comments nonetheless.

Boom Boom Larew dove into the competition with:

Sinking in debt, George and Sylvia sell all but their bathing caps to pay the rent.

Bluezy went under with:

Olympic hopefuls from the little known Northern island of Hoono wear their caps everywhere to get psyched up for the competition. At a hotel room party, friends are taking bets on of Marty will puke or Ellen will pass out.

And Nicky made waves with:

Gertrude and Arnold failed to convince the IOC that unsynchronized swimming should be added to the list of Olympic sports.

But it was Malisa who really floated to the top with:

Tom had convinced Babs that going down was an Olympic event.

Woo-hoo Malisa that was a good one. Way to go, girl. This week you be hangin' with the dufus. Congratulations.

Congrats Malisa!

I was on brain empty (situation normal) when I FAILED to come up with a caption, but I'm glad others did!

Quirks: Oh, I thought your caption was "eeeek"!
Malisa said…
Guess you can tell where my mind is most of the time! Good to be hangin' with you this week!

Malisa: Welcome to the club. I should call this Pause Ponder and Prurient! Congrats.
Bluezy said…
Hurray! I came by later and saw Malisa's and knew she was a winner!
trash talk said…
That Mal...her mind is always "down under"! She's a pip and always ready for a quick...quip!
nonamedufus said…
Bluezy: Hey, yours wasn't half bad. There's always next week.
nonamedufus said…
trash talk: Well, I loved her caption. It appealed to my sensibilities. Which says a lot about my sensibilities.

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…
