Pause Ponder and Pirouettes

Well, folks, I knew this picture would get a rise out of you. I think this is the Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire male dancer secret handshake. But leave it to you guys to have other ideas.

"See? I told you that these hats defy gravity!"

I ate a bottle of yeast today. I'm rising. Hey, so are you!

Hazards of the "pull my finger" joke.

"I see that you too have met Wayne, the Wedgie Master."

And our winner is...drum roll...the same guy that went for all the marbles last week. Some would say he's lost his marbles...

Bill and Dan were pretty gassy after eating at the Mexican place.

Hey, her, hey Moooooog. You tap danced your way nicely into the winner's spot this week. Congratulations. You be hangin' out with dufus. So wanna get together for Mexican? We have a couple of good places in town and I think it'd be cheaper than dance lessons.

Haha! That's a great one. The moooooogster does it again! He's got a permanent spot on the rope. Heh heh

And thankee kindly sir for the honorable or I mean honourable (this is a Canadian blog, no? I mean, eh?)

And the other honourees (see the "u!") were mighty funny and punny too!

I must say you are a great neighbo(u)r to have, Quirks. One of the most hono(u)rable out there.

Congrats, Mooooog! What is it with guys and flatulence, anyway? I think, though, that Bill and Dan are a little more than just gassy. *nudge, nudge, wink, wink*

And, congrats to all the other hono(u)rables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus! Oh, and congrats and thanks Quirks because without "u", "Qirky" just sounds weird.

Okay, okay. You win the clothespin award for the best comment about the comments. That was too much.

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…
