Sunday Funnies

We interrupt our regularly scheduled program with this breaking news bulletin.

Hey, look at this. Skeeter over at Dead Dog has started up a caption contest and guess who won last week. Yeah, that's right, moi. The dufus has still got it. So here's the pic and my beguiling caption:

Red, did you park your truck in that tree? Son of a birch!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.

I'm going to miss Jack Layton. I liked him, even though I didn't think he'd make a good prime minister. Mind you, I would have preferred him to His Royal Harperness. I saw Jack on Tout Le Monde En Parle, and he came across as a really good guy and demonstrated intelligence, humour and class.

Michelle Bachmann scares me. That woman is just a bible thump away from batshit crazy.

I was surprised the NDP garnered enough vote to form the Official Opposition but nothing could prepare me for the huge outpouring of emotion right across the country over his death. I certainly don't think HRH would have achieved nearly the same level of condolence.

Excuse me, but there seem to be FROGS everywhere!


Great funnies!

That's who got the plague of frogs! Sit back and relax, Quirks. Pull up a toad stool, why don't you.

I wonder if Irene had anything to do with that?
Skeeter said…
Thanks for the plug! And congrats! Btw, mine runs from tue to mon.

Since my comments are invisible, I can breathe a sigh of relief as I admit that I have absolutely no clue who Jack Layton is.

Also, I ran a red light today, and sometimes I like smelling my own farts.

Hello Janna, thanks for sharing. And now we will recite the prayer of serenity! Sorry, had a AA meeting flashbach!!

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…
