I'd like to say I can't relate to the first one, but...wait, gotta go, Facebook is updating on my phone. I'll talk to you later, John...on Facebook, of course.

Amazing how it's taken over our lives, isn't it?

It sure demonstrated the worst in the media. The coverage was atrocious.

I watched CNN and finally had to turn it off. The coverage was terrible, full of stupid speculation and what not. In the absence of any real developments they seemed to make up their own story.

The week was so bizarre, Indigo. Really makes one wonder.

I, too, am glad that so many people, you included, have chosen to focus on the heroes of the situation. That is what is needed.

Leave the weenies out of the publicity.

Let them rot in their buns.

I was so amazed by, and proud of, those people who rushed to help with little thought for their own safety. Amazing.

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.
