idling today?
nonamedufus said…
Pretty much, yeah. And according to Ziva I'm boring.
Laughing Mom said…
I'm boring too, so park your fears and let's drive full force through these last few days of insanity. Ziva's gonna reverse her opinion when she sees our great posts!
nonamedufus said…
I have pics for every post. Some of them, though, aren't very inspiring. 30 days is a looooooooong time.
Barb Paige said…
I thought about doing the same shot!
nonamedufus said…
After 22 days of this photo challenge I'm finding myself stuck in neutral.

Ut oh! What happened to the N?
MikeWJ said…
She called you boring? That's just mean, even if it is true.

Don't worry, I've got your back, NoName. Not in a broke back mountain kind of way, mind you. But in a supportive way.
MikeWJ said…
This challenge is really, really hard.
Ziva said…
I did NOT call it boring. I simply said that I did not want to take a photo of the stick shift in my car. Mostly, because the car was in the parking lot, and I was not. Stop twisting my words and make me out to be the bad guy when we all know MikeWJ is the bad guy.
Ziva said…
Wow, dufus, I've hardly ever seen a less boring photo. I love it. LOVE it. Of course, I have no idea how that thing works, but I'm sure you could teach me.
Boom Boom Larew said…
I was wondering the same thing. Was Henry out destroying your car when we visited?
Boom Boom Larew said…
Your car is a lot cleaner than mine. Wanna trade?
nonamedufus said…
I've hit a wall. That's what happens when you out your car in neutral.
nonamedufus said…
Sorry. With your whip we all know you're the bad girl.
nonamedufus said…
I wish I knew how to quit you, Mike.
nonamedufus said…
My car's a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander. After 6 years things start to wear. Including the driver.
nonamedufus said…
Not that I'm aware of. I'm gonna stay neutral in terms of replying to that question.
nonamedufus said…
I've never used the non-automatic part of my transmission. It's supposed to save fuel but I feel safest leaving it in D, except for the days I leave it in N, of course. That saves a lot of fuel.
nonamedufus said…
My son recently had it detailed for me. The interior was spotless. Of course he was responsible for getting it dirty. Guess he felt guilty.
ladyV said…
don't drive in neutral ;)
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I won't get very far...unless I'm on a hill.
Jamie Baker said…
I like the option for the tranny to work as automatic or sequential. Nice pic to a car guy.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it's too bad "sequential" wasn't a prompt.
Cheryl said…
Dufus, you've got that thing in Park. The prompt is Neutral. Geez, do I have to come up there and teach you the difference AGAIN?
Nonamedufus said…
That's the Canadian neutral.
Cheryl said…
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Methinks that's the Dufus neutral.
I love the rainbow shine on there... super!
nonamedufus said…
I think that's the reflection of the interior light.
nonamedufus said…
Well at least I didn't put it in R for Race.
Cheryl said…
Are you related to my French-Canadian grandmother? She learned to drive in her 40s or 50s. That woman would put the car in R and stomp on the gas without ever looking behind her to see who or what might be back there. Oddly enough, she only hit the granite post at the end of her driveway once.
nonamedufus said…
No but Maryse might be. Oops, did I say that out loud?
Coco said…
Where is the other half of N? I like this straight photo for neutral.
Cheryl said…
She might! And nope.
nonamedufus said…
For some reason it wore off. Don't know why. I never use neutral.
nonamedufus said…
Whew. Thank goodness. Thought I was in trouble for a minute there.
Cheryl said…
Not with me. Then again, I don't live with Maryse.

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
