I've Got The Sizzle

Which would you prefer? A mouse-ravaged piece of stinky cheese...

Something you have to work awfully hard to catch, clean and cook

Or a deliciously grilled medium rare T-bone steak...and I'm talkin' sizzle, here

That's what I thought. You went with the steak, didn't you. (For vegetarians I'm willing to substitute a yummy slab of fried tofu.)

You may have heard I've entered a Blog Makeover Contest being sponsored by my good buds at Tribal Blogs. You haven't heard? Well I have...entered the contest. And of course I've heard. I'm in the contest, eh. And you know what? I need your vote.

There are three finalists and here are their entries:

Salmon Like the Fish

We Work For Cheese

Nonamedufus...the sizzle, remember?

So think carefully when you cast your vote here: cheese with holes, something fishy, or steak...or tofu...that sizzles (me!)?

Yeah I thought so.

Thanks for your support.

This ad is paid for by the committee to elect nonamedufus as the winner of the Tribal Blogs Blog Makeover Contest. Any slanderous comparisons of other participants is purely intended.

"I'm nonamedufus and I approve this sizzle."

I voted for cheese, I mean YOU. YOU. *wink, wink*

heh heh

AND when I tried to vote for YOU more than once? It wouldn't let me!

That's not very nice. *grin*

And I like mine well done.

For your vote I'll cook it standing on my head! Thanks, Quirks. Well done. (heh, heh)

Now you're just being shameless. But if I vote for you, will you send me some nicely aged steaks, about 1-1/4 inches thick? T-bones are good, but I prefer rib steaks (I don't suppose there's a Nortown in Aylmer?). Don't get me wrong, we do get beef here, it's just not very good. I'd also settle for a nice salmon or some nice rainbow trout.

I can see this buying votes thing is going to be expensive.
Nicky said…
Oh, it's like that, is it? Mouse-ravaged stinky cheese, indeed!!

The gloves are off, sir!
Nicky said…
HEY!! What happened to the "I love both blogs and couln't possibly choose between you."?!

We're very disappointed in you Dozo. Mike is actually crying. Yes, crying. It's not pretty.
nonamedufus said…
I only used it for comparison's sake. I meant no slight against you, my esteemed competitor. Oh, I'm going to hell for that one.
nonamedufus said…
She obviously likes a good steak over a stinky cheese.
00dozo said…
Okay, okay. I'll vote for both blogs but, like I said, my votes would be kinda redundant. I can't pick sides. I'm Switzerland (yet I still can't speak French worth a hill of les haircuts).

Please give Mike a tissue. Oh, and just to cheer him up, how would he like a nice new shiny bell for his bike? Wait! You guys are supposed to be bribing me! (Although I might spring for those frilly things you stick in the end of the handlebars.)

Nicky said…
Yes. Yes, you are. I hope you're happy.
Skeeter- said…
Hurry up! Im ready to" PPP"- poot, piss and pun!
nonamedufus said…
Patience, patience. Go and vote for me first.
Linda Medrano said…
The competition is pretty fierce with this. Cheese, fish or steak? Where's the mushrooms?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, didn't I tell you? They're included with the steak! And for you, Linda, no charge.
Linda Medrano said…
Thank you! And really, you just can't beat Dufus's meat!
nonamedufus said…
Well, actually I might be open to offers.
Linda Medrano said…
Okay, that made me laugh.
nonamedufus said…
If I had a nickel for every time my wife said that...
Mike said…
Oh but if you choose cheese you get an awesome little pet that will crap everywhere.
nonamedufus said…
Exactly! Hey, are you supposed to be over here in the midst of this hotly contested, um, contest?

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.
