30 Days of Photos - #22 - Portrait

Ha, ha, ha, what a great collection of the week's political cartoons. Where? Over on dufus daze, naturally.


Welcome to 30 Days of Photos. We're in the home stretch with just a week to go. Thank God! (Did I just say that out loud?) So this is where 18 bloggers are participating in posting a photo a day for 30 days. Here are the other 17 you can visit, who are equally happy there's only 7 - aw damn, Cheryl tells me there's 8 - more days, after you've been here:

A portrait with a twist...of tangerine(s), baby tomato and a banana. 

Aw, why so serious?

Just one more week to go.

Great idea for this gawd-awful prompt.

I hate to burst your bubble, but someone's going to, but there are actually 8 very long soul-sucking days left to post. I am so very sorry.

You were supposed to say you chose fruits because today is "Earth Day". You would have gotten bonus cookies for that. Don't say I didn't try to help. ;)
nonamedufus said…
I meant after today, but thanks a lot for rending me there Cheryl.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, I never thought of that. Did you know the tomato is a fruit?
Cheryl said…
Ah dufus, dufus, dufus. If you count the days on your fingers (like I did) you'll see that there are 8 (23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30). I wouldn't harsh your mellow on purpose. It's just that numbers don't lie.
That is a GREAT idea! Indeed, why so sad! Turn that banana frown upside down!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I knew you guys didn't want to see a picture of me, so I looked around the house and this is what I came up with. The shadows in the pic are from the afternoon sun shining in the kitchen window.
nonamedufus said…
Math was never my strong suit, Cheryl. It's why I went into journalism.
It's good, but it could have been grape. (Awww, I slay myself sometimes. ;)
Cheryl said…
I didn't go into accounting on purpose, it just made sense.
Cheryl P. said…
A portrait and a still life all in one. What an artist you are!! I agree with Katherine, you look sad.
laughing mom said…
Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?
nonamedufus said…
Boy, you stomped all over that one, Bryan.
nonamedufus said…
I am sad. There's still another week of this foolishness to go!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah! She did! How did you know? I didn't always listen to my mother, though.
nonamedufus said…
Something doesn't add up here.
Wine, wine, wine: that's all I ever hear from you.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I'm so embarrassed. Sorry. Now I'm red.
Cabernet or merlot or pinot noir or...? What shade of red? Color me white...Zinfandel.
Ziva said…
Hah, very funny idea, dufus.
nonamedufus said…
I have them once in a while.
nonamedufus said…
I'm hard "pressed" to know.
Quirkyloon said…
Nice humorous twist. What a fruit! heh heh
nonamedufus said…
And to think it all started with just a seed of an idea.
I'd like to know how long you spent polishing that baby tomato.
nonamedufus said…
You know, Mo, over here we call that brown-nosing and for the record there was none of that involved in this.
00dozo said…
Haha! Totally unpredictable yet fitting! At least you had fruit - I had feet (or foot - my other left foot).

00dozo said…
All right, guys. Put a cork in it already.

nonamedufus said…
Yeah, take care with that, Hop-along. I'm glad you found my photo "appealing".
nonamedufus said…
I'm "vine" with that.
Mariann said…
Yes. That is why I didn't say "fruit and vegetables".
Linda Medrano said…
What a face!

But where's the figure?
meleahrebeccah said…
love the fruit smiley face!
nonamedufus said…
Orange you glad I thought of this?!
nonamedufus said…
If a person who eats veggies is a vegetarian, then what's a person who eats fruit?
meleahrebeccah said…
I sure am! Ahahahahahhaah
Nora Blithe said…
Ha! You made me laugh! Thank you.
nonamedufus said…
See? I couldn't have done that with a portrait of a cat!

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
