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! ;)
Quirky Loon said…
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.
nonamedufus said…
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.

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…

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.
