30 Days of Photos IV - Day 12 - Tremor


Prior to researching today's prompt I thought tremor was like an earthquake and I thought there was a fat chance I'd get a picture of that. Even though where I live is on a fault and we've had mild earthquakes in the past I was sure one wouldn't occur in time for today.

But a tremor can also be something physical. Wikipedia explains it as an involuntary, somewhat rhythmic, muscle contraction involving different parts of the body - but mostly the hands.

Many things cause tremors, among them alcohol withdrawal and caffeine.

Well in my case it couldn't be the former so it must be the latte.

Zip over to Ziva's and see what's shaking respecting today's prompt.

That's a good tremor you had going on there. Get that coffee down you!

Great concept photo . . . and a good pun!
Agent 54 said…
That is brilliant. The still cup with the shaking hand. Really good.

I'm actually not a big coffee drinker, old bean.
nonamedufus said…
Brilliant? I wouldn't go that far. But you can. Thanks 54.
nonamedufus said…
There's a grain of truth in your comment, Deb.
nonamedufus said…
They don't call us #teamlame for nothing. Oh, wait. Maybe that's exactly why they call us #teamlame.
Ziva said…
...must be the latte. You're killing me, dufus! Great job. ;)
nonamedufus said…
Heh, heh. Your sensibilities aren't brew-sed?
ReformingGeek said…
Ha! You so funny! I'm shaking with laughter.


Nice job.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I'm sure there'll be a cup-ple more before this challenge is done. Thanks, Ref.

Oh, yeah, Mr. Innocent. Couldn't be the alcohol, could it? Right.
Ooops... I got the pun... what I meant to say, "Couldn't be the former..." Damn... I ruined the whole effect of the comment. That's why I'm on #teamlame...
nonamedufus said…
Oh, okay. Truth be known there was no coffee in that cup. It was a little hair of the dog.
nonamedufus said…
Heaven's no. What are you trying to say?
Oh me me me coffee!!!! Yup! Good call!
nonamedufus said…
Are you singing or drinking coffee, Katherine?
Lauren said…
I could use a cup of jumping joe. I'm not wound up enough.

Looks like me every morning, and again by 4pm.

What? You can't make the Earth Move Under [Your] Feet? Carol King can. I'm just saying.
Cheryl said…
OUCH! But, you salvaged your writing by posting a great hand tremor. If I could have surreptitiously photographed a friend's hand, I would have. She has tremors that she won't get checked by a doc. I want to drag her there myself.
nonamedufus said…
Caffeine is a fascinating drink isn't it. You need it to get going but the more you drink the harder it is to stop.
nonamedufus said…
Poor Mike. Alcohol might cure that.
nonamedufus said…
No, I went another route. I didn't want to step on the cat.
nonamedufus said…
That's unfortunate for your friend. I was merely fakin' it.
Jackal said…
Brilliant !
nonamedufus said…
Well I wouldn't go that far. But, hey, I'll let you. Thanks.
Cheryl said…
She's self-diagnosed it as age-related and is quite satisfied with that. Damn fool.
Cheryl P. said…
Always room for a pun.. What's with the Starbucks cup? Don't you Canadians always prefer Tim Hortons? Or do I have that wrong?
nonamedufus said…
The cup was a gift. But you're right. Tim Horton's coffee is great.
nonamedufus said…
Always best to run these things by a doctor. I speak from experience.

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…
