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!

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

30 Days of Photos - #4 - The Experiment

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
