I was raptured! Then they figured out it was a mistake and dropped me back onto the earth.

*evil grin*

This is like a bad dream.
nonamedufus said…
You were raptured? I was ruptured. Ouch.
00dozo said…
Well, I'll be damned.

nonamedufus said…
You and many others apparently!
Madge said…

laughing mom said…
The intranets here in the heavens is a little slow - sorry that it took this long to let you know that we're all fine and wish you were here!
Linda Medrano said…
The answer is "yes".
Mikewj said…
I can't hear you over all this effin' harp music!
I think the rapture happened an NO ONE was picked!
nonamedufus said…
You and many others apparently.
nonamedufus said…
So, how was it for you?
nonamedufus said…
Shit, I slept right through it. You were supposed to wake me.
nonamedufus said…
How do you know for sure? Am I in for 5 months of floods and earthquakes and shit?
nonamedufus said…
Can you say effin' in effin' heaven?
Madge said…
Meh, pretty uneventful, I got up there, and then they realized they made a mistake. From what I could tell, it looked like Facebook of the Damned, only climate controlled.
nonamedufus said…
Phew, that's a relief. But then where is everyone. Is there a sale at Wal Mart that I don't know about?
Madge said…
Well if you wouldn't play your effin' ipad so loud maybe, just maybe you'd be able to hear.
Madge said…
Perfect!!! Thanks Linda
nonamedufus said…
There's iPads in heaven? Whoa.
nonamedufus said…
So no probing or anything like that then?
nonamedufus said…
Well, like, thanks for leaving me behind, eh.
Madge said…
No! And I'm here to tell ya Pally Wally I was Pissed!!!
Madge said…
Obviously Steve Jobs knows where his bread is buttered.
Madge said…
effen' right you can!
Madge said…
the answer is "yes", don't you listen?
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, he sure thought ahead.
nonamedufus said…
Cool. Who knew.
nonamedufus said…
Damn
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, but a guy can hope can't he?
nonamedufus said…
Well, I don't know if that would exactly work for me.
K A B L O O E Y said…
Marco...Marco.... No Polo? Damn. Where are you, Dufus? And is it hot in here, or is it just me?
Josie said…
Don't think we had the rapture here in Oz. . . I did have a Timtam though. . .kinda close.
nonamedufus said…
So you're saying a chocolate biscuit is close to the rapture, eh? Funny, I woulda gone with sex, but hey...
Josie said…
You clearly have never had a Timtam. FYI, it was a double choc coated Timtam. . .almost better than sex even. . not that I remember. . .
nonamedufus said…
Oh, double chocolate. Well, I'll just have to take your word for it.

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 …

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
