Pause Ponder and Percolate

Thank you, my friend. That's quite an endorsement. From the most interesting man in the world to the most interesting caption contest on the interwebs!

So, what have we got this week? Well, I jokingly said our coffee girl was my good blogging buddy Nicky. She tells me, though, she never drinks coffee. So I guess she isn't as flexible as I first thought.

But the rest of our commenters were, submitting a variety of questionable captions. And those are the best kind!

The picture a minute before was stirring in the cream and sugar. It's even more impressive. 
nudge-nudge, wink-wink

Despite years spent working at the local diner, Janie never could grasp the concept of the bottomless cup of coffee.

This is NOT why your mother told you to wear clean underwear.

One fart or two of sugar...erm, I mean cubes of sugar.

And our winner this week, really made me laugh. Well, of course she did. She even has "laugh" in her name.

Everyman's dream barista!

Way to go, Laughingmom. You really bent over backwards with that effort. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Yes, ma'am. You know I dated a barista once. And when I broke it off, boy, did she ever get steamed. You wanna get together and grab a cup of coffee? No? That's okay. I understand. I'm flexible. Maybe we can find a yoga class instead.

So remember, folks, next week we'll be commenting on a pic my old blogging pal Screaming Me-Me sent, um, me. (I didn't mean "old" in age, Me-Me. I just meant back-in-the-day you and I used to blog together. You know back when they first invented the internet.) Be sure and join us for that.

Oh, and you drive-byers click on these folks' links to visit their blogs. They're pretty funny people.

And remember what the Spanish guy says:

Thanks dufus! I'd love to join you for yoga or coffee. I just don't want to spread myself too thin!

HaHaHa...that's funny. I think you just won the funniest comment in accepting having the funniest comment. You know that woman in the picture is practicing what to do in case of a nuclear attack, eh? She's
putting her head between her knees and kissing her ass goodbye.

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…
