30 Days of Writing - #21 - Favours I'd Ask of Satan



In no particular order:

That there be no such thing as  high cholesterol.

That I could drink as much as I wanted without a hangover.

That I'd win the lottery.

That I could sing in a supergroup featuring Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Eric Clapton.

That I could sing.

That my wife let me buy madras shorts to golf in.


Head on over to We Work For Cheese to see what the rest of those yahoos would ask of Satan.

Hahahahaha That is so good, Dufus. I will be thinking of my list today as well. I am thinking that maybe just a really good lottery win and being able to eat anything I want without worrying about gaining weight would pretty much do it for me...well that and world peace.

I do agree that it appears Neil Young hasn't sold out or whatever but aren't his tickets outrageously cheap. But if that's because he doesn't use sponsorship than I guess that's cool. http://concerts.ticketpolice.com/neil-young-tickets/

Ditto to all of those, except the drinking one ;)

What no madras? Can't a guy get any respect? *said in my best Rodney Dangerfield voice*

Yes to the shorts!

Does your wife golf with you? If not, why does she care what you wear?
Barb said…
I actually bought the blue ones pictured for my hubby! He wears them to golf occasionally! ;)

I'm very concerned.


Why won't your wife let you wear the Madras?


I'm very worried.


I may need more than ONE diet dr. pepper to ponder and muse this.

What you said except for buying madras shorts to golf in. Satan probably has custom shorts made with a back flap for his tail.

Oh I wouldn't stop at madras shorts. Have you ever seen John Daly's pants? Google "John Daly pants pics"
nonamedufus said…
I was just kidding. I'm gonna buy a pair and see what she says!
nonamedufus said…
Okay! Lucky guy!
nonamedufus said…
My point exactly! No, she doesn't golf.
nonamedufus said…
Yay!!!
nonamedufus said…
My wife has very high standards. Me, on the other hand...
nonamedufus said…
Ha, ha. Cheers!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I don't want to be too selfish. Just the lottery win would be enough for me.
Lauren said…
I see your point. I just Googled his pants. Yikes!!!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah madras is pretty tame compared to those!
Lauren said…
They're like Picasso sporting wear.

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…
