Things That Annoy Me



1. The first two weeks of fantasy football.
I'm currently 0 wins and 2 loses in my fantasy league.
We'll see what happens in week three tonight after my man #1 Quarterback Aaron Rodgers plays.

2. When golfer Tiger Woods steps up to take his tee shot on a par five and some yahoo in the crowd yells "in the hole". He's five strokes away from the hole ya jerk.

3. The royal ta-tas.
Never has so much been made of so little.

4. Mitt Romney.
And I'm not even American.

5. Fall.
Where the hell did summer go?

My brother Whitey and I spent a week at my other brother's place in Orlando last January golfing. One night we went to Jelly Rolls at Disney which is a club with duelling piano players who take requests. We sent up Oh Canada. They played it. It was a sight to see all the Canadians jump to their feet and try to remember the words.

Yet another reason I love you folks sooooooo much. We got lucky again & the young woman sang again. She has an angelic voice.

Did she know all the words? And, if so, did she sing half of them in French?

AHAHhaHAahhahahaha! YES!!

I know, eh. Drives me nuts.
Cheryl said…
She knew all the words but didn't sing in French. The older woman who was a mainstay used to sing the first verse in French then switch over to English.
nonamedufus said…
Wow. I'm really impressed. Is New England, in particular New Hampshire, interested in joining Canada? You already know the anthem.
Cheryl said…
I've been ready to go for years. If it weren't for your lower temps in winter, I'd have been there long ago.
nonamedufus said…
The low temperatures don't bother us. We have glowing hearts.

Russell Wilson may have Rodgers' number tonight. But I wouldn't put my money on it.
I only bet on hockey and at cards.
nonamedufus said…
That's good. Otherwise I'll be 0 and 3. You would have to pick the only sport to bet on that they're not playing.
Michael Wolfe said…
I wasn't worried about you until the game unfolded. 5 sacks and before halftime? You might be lucky if AR makes it out alive.
nonamedufus said…
Christ it's 8 times now and we're still in the first half! He's spending more time on his back than a lady of the evening.
Michael Wolfe said…
In another league I have Greg Jennings and, more importantly, Seattle DEF.


Halftime still pending, 18 points. 8 sacks. Yeesh.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah Seattle D at this point has almost twice as many fantasy points as Rodgers. Sigh.

This is my first year in nearly a dozen years not playing fantasy football. And I love it.
P.J. said…
Weird. I posted a comment. It showed it was there and then gone. I'll try again.


This is the first year in nearly a dozen years I'm not doing fantasy football and I'm loving it. :)
nonamedufus said…
This is only my 2nd year of fantasy football. It sure is a different way to watch football. Am I loving it? Jury's still out.

Sometimes commenters get through to Blogger comments which don't register here with Disqus. And other times Disqus is just weird like that.

Hey Dufus! Would now be a good time to tell you that I'm 2-1, thanks to a valiant final-game flurry from Wes Welker? GET IN! And Mitt? He HAS to be a put on; nobody could be that inept, SURELY? I think he's a sacrificial GOP offering to ensure they can sit tight and block everything for another four years, just to prove that a black man can't be a good president. The scamps. Indigo
nonamedufus said…
Sure now's a good time. I just went 1-2 this weekend despite Rodgers pitiful 12 fantasy points last night. Mitt? Now there's a guy that should keep his mouth closed instead of sticking his foot in it.

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.
