I have plenty of those too!
Paula Wooters said…
You just had to remind us of those rules, didn't you? What a Dufus!

Experience has taunt me to measure about seven times before I cut once.
nonamedufus said…
It's a dirty job but someone has to do it.
Margaret said…
Nice angle, Doof. I meant the shot, not the rulers themselves, although those are nice too, I guess.
nonamedufus said…
I get it. Angle. Good one.
Laughing Mom said…
With all of those you can't have a disagreement on how long something is ;)

Interesting take on this one! Nice move, John!
nonamedufus said…
Oh whether or not it's level.
Ziva said…
Hah, great job, noname "I wanna be a boss" dufus! A word of advice, when you decide to be a boss, you might want to trade those in for an entirely new set of rules. And maybe a whip. ;)
nonamedufus said…
How about this approach?

Clever little play on the "rules" prompt. I love how inventive you are for taking pictures around the house.
Monique Renae said…
More measuring sticks!! A man after my own heart!
Cheryl said…
I'm so damn glad I didn't go with this one (one of my first thoughts). Too many RULES floating around out there and they're all beautiful. Lovely arrangement. Did you do that all by yourself?
nonamedufus said…
Just trying to stay on the straight and narrow.
nonamedufus said…
Ah, I'm glad I measured up to your expectations.
nonamedufus said…
I did indeed. Took several shots but this was my fave.
Linda Medrano said…
Nice photo of a bunch of rulers. I might have photographed Saddam but he's dead.
Coco said…
Rulers again but those are for professionals. I like the degree of your photo.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah and the travel costs are kind of prohibitive.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks. I think I have all the angles covered.
Jamie Baker said…
You rule, Dufus. And definitely are not a tool.
nonamedufus said…
It's a slow process...inch by inch.
ladyV said…
you rule, indeed. and what is that balance thing called.
nonamedufus said…
A level. No shit, I'm really on the level.
Lauren said…
I always thought you were a level-headed guy. Love how you staged the shot.
I didn't even THINK in this direction... GENIUS!!!!
MikeWJ said…
Nice photo, NoName.

And I hope you don't mind if I call you NoName. Most people call you Dufus, but I feel like we're on a first-name basis being friends and all. If not, please let me know, and I'll call you Mr. Dufus.
MikeWJ said…
Punny, Lauren. He'll love it, trust me.
nonamedufus said…
I do, I really do.
nonamedufus said…
I come fro a long "line" of level-headed guys.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, shucks. Genius, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Hey, it's my name Mr. Whitman-Jones.

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.
