Pause Ponder and Pitch Your Partner

This was a terrific week for captions. You guys were flinging them left and right with abandon. It was quite a challenge to pick a winner. Indeed, it was a real toss-up. Let's see what we've got...

At the rooftop square dance, Jim takes "swing your partner" a bit too literally

I said "Pull my finger! Pull my fingerrrrr!"

And here we see the first tribute being tossed into the arena to
officially start The Hunger Games.

All good ones guys. And look at 00dozo's return to our little arena of puns with a caption true to form. Have you guys seen the movie yet?

But our winner this week has long been the bridesmaid but never the bride in our little contest. Well that all changes now. My cherie ami from Mesa, Arizona is responsible for leaving a comment that has become a wicked ear-worm whirling around in my brain since Wednesday...

You spin me right round, baby, right round, like a shot put baby!

Yay, Quirks. You've done it girl. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Just like old times, eh?! Congratulations my friend. What do you say we get together and head on up to my roof where we can toss around a few ideas. Then we can throw some cats, maybe a racoon or two, perhaps a dwarf, before we work up to tossing our cookies. Ha, ha!

Thanks everyone, for playing along. And, again, congratulations Quirks.

Wowzah and yowzah!

I won!

I won?

Well I'd like to thank the Academy and all the little people who help put me here. Mainly my internet service provider, my mouse, my keyboard, and most of all Google! This is for you!

heh heh

Thank-you Dufus! There's nobody I'd rather be hangin' with! *smile*

CRAP (Canadian Royal Academy of Punology) is pleased to bestow this honour upon you...your internet provider, mouse, keyboard and Google notwithstanding. You are now officially full of CRAP, Quirks. Congratulations.

Congrats, Quirks! It's not everyday you get bestowed with CRAP. And, oh yes, thank you very much for that earworm, too.

And congrats to the other honourables!

Thanks for another mention, dufus. And, no, I haven't seen the movie - hell, I didn't even know what the "Hunger Games" was until about three weeks ago. Yep, that's about how much out of the loop I am lately.

You didn't know what the Hunger Games was? Have you been living under a rock? Oh yeah, you live ON a rock, don't you?

Good to see you around 00dozo. Don't be a stranger.

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…
