Pause Ponder and St.Patrick's Day

Now there's a good upstanding Irish name for ya. Happy Saint Paddy's day to you guys. How many of you folks will be imbibing of the green ale today? Not me. No, the only thing green in my beer will be the lime in my Corona. I don't think they do green beer in Panama.

Remember this guy from earlier in the week? He's some pot of gold isn't he? Let's cut right to the heart of the matter and see what you guys had to say about him...

Mr. Gaga, putting the finishing touches on his red carpet outfit.

This is all wrong. You can't eat with two knives. He should consider replacing one of them with a fork.

Knife, knife, baby! Under pressure, my sinuses.

But our winner planned ahead and took into account the day we'd be announcing the winner. ..

Shamus learned quickly the rests of trying to steal a Leprechaun's gold.

Way to go LOTGK. Faith and begorrah, lad, you be hanging with O'dufus this week. Maybe you and I ought to take a trip on down to Wal-Mart. I hear they've got a special on steak knives this weekend.

Thanks to everyone for playing this week. Join us next Wednesday for another exciting edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

Sorry I missed this week's events. I was out of town. That guy is a real cut up.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, you buy two knives and you get this guy for free!
nonamedufus said…
This guy could be a character from a novel that takes place in the Middle Ages. Sir Rated. (hahahahaha)
LOTGK said…
Thank you. Although i didn't stay at a Holiday Inn last night, I did have a most excellent tasting corned beef sandwich.
nonamedufus said…
Wow, you coulda had a V-8!
LOTGK said…
I used to, but my Jeep is a 4.0 six. :D
Nonamedufus said…
4.0 wheels? But everybody has 4 wheels.
LOTGK said…
4.0 six, = 4.0 liter engine slant 6 cylinder.
I also have a 5th wheel attached to the trunk. And a steering wheel.
However, a motorcycle only has two whhels. :D

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…
