I agree! How about we start the 30 Days of Beer challenge? A different beer each day. You know what? That started off as a joke but turned into a really good idea.
nonamedufus said…
Hell, it can even be the same beer and it doesm't have to be one a day.
nonamedufus said…
Yes, thank god it's done. Not a moment too soon.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, Jackal said that. But thanks.
I am grinning ear to ear.... I just love it!
Tami Von Zalez said…
Perfect for Octoberfest!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I've started breathing normally again.
babs (beetle) said…
Thanks, Dufus. So have you!
babs (beetle) said…
Thanks, Dufus. So have you!
nonamedufus said…
Gosh, thanks again!

Oh, that's actually very clever. Much like everything you do, especially when you're inspired by Ziva, who can be quite inspiring what with the ice cream, shadows, and lover photos, not to mention the whip. It's fire and ice with her, that's all I can say.

Thanks for playing, NoName, especially when you had to visit the emergency room. That's dedication above and beyond the norm. But then, nothing about you is normal, is it? ;-)
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
I'm in!
Linda Medrano said…
Great picture and very smart interpretation. I thought you'd be circling October 13th though!
ReformingGeek said…
That is NICE! It's so much prettier than my hand-written numbered list, also with checkmarks! Oh, and where would most of the world be without smart phones? Dumb, I guess.


Hee Hee.


I'm glad I finally found my way to your blog on a consistent basis. This was a lot of fun!
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Hahahaha! I LOVE that! Beautifully done.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I just thought you wanted to thank me twice!
nonamedufus said…
Nope, that's why they call me Nonormaldufus. Oh, wait, you're the only one that called me that. And actually you didn't in so many words. Despite my griping I really enjoy this "challenge". You and Ziva in particular are terrific photographers. The rest of us try to limp along contextualizing our dopey photos with a bit of a write up. But it's a lot of fun. Thanks to you and Ziva for making it so.
nonamedufus said…
Oh that's another calendar entirely. Looking forward to it.
nonamedufus said…
I had to photocopy a list. I couldn't keep going back to Day 1 minus 1 to find out what the heck I was supposed to take a picture of each day. Hey, I was born long before computers!


And I'm glad you made your way over Reffie. I loved your comments each day.
nonamedufus said…
Thank you, Ma'am. You gave me one of my favourite posts in the challenge - Tolstoy. Your Blood On The Tracks reference was brilliant. (That's what they say in the UK, eh, brilliant?)
nonamedufus said…
Sure? Have you got 32oz beer mug you can bring?
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Wow, really? Thank you! :)

Yes indeed we do say 'brilliant'. Among other things, that is, like 'heavens above!' and 'gosh'. Yes, some of us really do say 'gosh' sometimes. It shows our age, I suppose. Of course, I also say a lot of other things, too, some of which would do credit to a sailor.

When you look at it all laid out like that, Ice Cream looks so very far away. But it is because it's been a long road. Nice way to tie it all up, Dufus.
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Well, you guys say things like trunk and toque! And I know perfectly well what chips are, thank you. They're what you get in your car's paintwork if you drive too fast over a freshly laid road!



Or those potato thingies you can eat. I have to say, you guys make good chips. I like the ones with ripples in them.
So THAT's how you did it! I really have to get me one of them there calendar thingies before the next challenge rolls around. It's been fun, my friend!
nonamedufus said…
Paula I loved visiting your place every day. It was one of the highlights of the challenge. You stuck to the reno and you stuck to using it cover every prompt. Well done.
Lauren said…
hahahha - well said. I loved punning with you.
Traci Shannon said…
Nice! It's been great visiting you and your happily ever after photos.
:-)
Traci
nonamedufus said…
It was pun fun wasn't it?
nonamedufus said…
Right back atchya, Traci.
nonamedufus said…
It was a tough haul at times but it was fun nonetheless.
nonamedufus said…
Well, the feeling's mutual!
I am persistent... if nothing else. Now, about that kitchen...
nonamedufus said…
Or fun pun, or some pun fun under the gun, or... well you get the idea.
nonamedufus said…
That's another way of putting it.

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.
