Pause Ponder and Prospective Goddesses

Obviously these girls didn't have the grandmother I once had. I recall sticking my tongue out at her when I was about 5 years old and she grabbed a knife from the kitchen drawer and threatened to cut it off. That was many years ago but her feigned over-the-top reaction has stayed with me to this day. Although I've been known to still stick my tongue out from time to time. So what have we got in this week's captions?

Well, Donnie had this one licked with:

Manners and maturity. It's what being a teen is all about.

00dozo took a page from my favourite movie A Christmas Story with:

This is what happens when you lick too many poles in the winter.

Cruella Collett stuck her tongue firmly in her cheek and gave us:

5 seconds later the Kardashians finally came up with a way of becoming famous.

But Boom Boom puckered up and blew a raspberry to Charlie Sheen's recent antics with:

Prospective goddesses vie for a job at Sober Valley Lodge.

Ha, ha...good one Boom Boom. You win again, girl. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations.

Thanks to all for playing along and we'll see you back here again Wednesday for our next Pause Ponder and Pun.

Phillipia: She's on a tear. She's won several times recently.
Boom Boom Larew said…
So, do you think this will win me any points when I apply to be a goddess?
00dozo said…
Congrats Boom Boom!! I think we should declare March Charlie Sheen month!

Thanks for the mention and congrats to Donnie and Cruella ... Hmmm, "Donnie and Cruella" - has a nice ring to it, eh?

Boom Boom: Congrats, Boom. You've got my vote!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo:Oh, please. Wasn't February enough?
00dozo said…
Well, most of what I read about him (and mostly through the blogs) was in March. God forbid I would associate him with the month of my birth!
nonamedufus said…
00dozo: I don't think we should even give him a day.

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…
