Pause Ponder and Perturbing

This was an odd pic. It's actually a sculpture of a screw outside a museum in Rotterdam. Yeah, go figure. Maybe it's a Sex Museum, I dunno. A friend sent me this pic and thought it might be something I could post for Pause Ponder and Pun. Now knowing this, let's see what you guys thought...

Motto for Craftsman Tool Tech University: "We're so screwed".

Even a screw can melt in the bowels of the Texas heat.

Pigpen watched helplessly as his friend Spike succumbed to a Viagra overdose.

But our winner called it as he saw it this week!

I waited 30 days for Pause Ponder and Pun and all I got was this stinkin picture.

Heh, heh. Funny, LOTGK. Very funny. But now we're back after 30 Days of Photos and everyone knows where to find us every Wednesday. Congratulations, LOTGK, you waited 4 weeks but now you be hangin' with dufus. Good on ya! Wear my badge well, dude.

Congrats, LOTGK!

And congrats to the other honourables! Thanks for the mention, dufus - it's been awhile since I've been here (gawd, it almost feels like forever).

nonamedufus said…
Um, ah, okay.
nonamedufus said…
The sweaty screw thing?
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, LOTGK "nailed" it.
nonamedufus said…
I think after 30 daysI'm experiencing photo fatigue.
LOTGK said…
Hey everyone, SCREW YOU!

And thank you. I had a joke about nuts and bolts, but after just seeing Eli Manning on SNL as a drag queen. I am stumped...

It's taken 2 days to finally get here (I think my computer hates me).

Congrats LOTGK. Thanks for the shout-out dufus. So far I'm loving the pity vote.
nonamedufus said…
I don't get it. I guess I had to be there.
nonamedufus said…
Don't feel bad. It's taken ME 2 days to get to my own comments. I'm not sure if the problem's with Blogger or DISQUS. Frustrating.

I seem to have fixed the problem. One of the widgets in my sidebar wasn't loading. I removed it and the problem was solved.

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
