I think Ziva's everyone's type.
Danielle Batog said…
Yep...Wikipedia saves me once again.
Pat Kumicich said…
is that a portable keyboard?
nonamedufus said…
Those Finns are loose, aren't they?
nonamedufus said…
Always so helpful.
Laughing Mom said…
Oh, you hit the right key today!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, but now I'm all tapped out.
Barb Paige said…
I want an Ipad....... it looks so much cooler than a laptop!
nonamedufus said…
I love my iPad. I'm downloading a lot of e-books and music these days. Very handy.
Cheryl said…
If Ziva's photos and writing are indicative of all Finns, they're definitely free spirits. I blame our British forebears for our collective uptightness.
Ziva said…
Loose?! Well, we know who won't be getting a whipping anytime soon.
Ziva said…
Exactly, thank you Cheryl!
nonamedufus said…
You mean you're uptight? I meant loose in a good way.
nonamedufus said…
Speak for yourself you constricted American.
Coco said…
I wondered why virtual keyboards are so clear and found out each key has only one character or a symbol. Who thought of it decades ago? I'm glad you love your iPad. :)
nonamedufus said…
It's the way of the future! And the future is now!

I miss my iPad. I bought myself one and it was promptly stolen by my 4 yr old who then had it stolen by his father.
nonamedufus said…
Funny how that happens, eh? Mine goes missing every once and a while too.
Cheryl said…
I was using the royal "our" (in honor of that queen on your coins) but was speaking for myself. And constricted doesn't begin to describe the level of my uptightness.
nonamedufus said…
If I had to sit through the endless months of electioneering going on south of the border I'd be a little uptight too. I don't know how you guys manage it.
Cheryl said…
As the 1st primary state, we get bombarded for almost 2 years before the General Election. When NH was identified as a swing state late this summer, we've been getting hit especially hard this fall.

This afternoon I had an appointment 4 towns over (with my oh so Canadian oral surgeon). Drove there on back roads. I felt as though I was in a war zone with all the competing lawn signs. NH has some hotly contested positions this year so it's worse than anything I've ever seen. Social media has made it all worse.


I made my decisions for state positions at our state primary in September. Now I'm just lying low and staying out of the fray. One reason I'm playing in this challenge is for distraction for all the garbage.


(Light reading from the waiting room. I love that man, his wife, and their 2 kids.)

sweet qwerty baby

I would like an iPad, but can't justify it when I already have an iMac and a Macbook. It'd just be an expensive toy. I have too many of those already.
nonamedufus said…
Nobody puts qwerty baby in the corner.
nonamedufus said…
I love expensive toys. I just can't afford them.
meleahrebeccah said…
Sah-wheeeeeeeeeeeeeet!
Is that an ipad! LUCKYYYYYY! :)
Boom Boom Larew said…
From old Remingtons to iPads. What a world we live in!
MikeWJ said…
I love my ipad. Linda Medrano gave it to me, and I'll be forever grateful. It's an amazing thing.
MikeWJ said…
NH's a swing state? I thought it was very conservative, and only now I find out it's the Finland of America? Why don't I live there?
nonamedufus said…
Yes and it complements my Mac Book and iPhone.
nonamedufus said…
And we've lived to see this evolution. Man, are we old.
nonamedufus said…
Really? She gave me mine too. She's swell, isn't she?
nonamedufus said…
Swing state, Mike, not swinger state.
Lauren said…
I really admire you and the others who have stuck with this. I could only make it to day 10. I would love an iPad. I've got a Mac laptop with 10.4 OS. Every time, I access Google mail via Firefox, Google tells me to upgrade to a modern browser.

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
