Pause Ponder and Pugilists

A little bit of housekeeping before we get to this week's winner. This will be the last Pause Ponder and Pun for a little while. In fact this will be my last post for a while. And that's not all. You may not see me for a bit on Facebook or Twitter.  This will be interesting. Easier said than done but that's my intent. Nothing's wrong. Things couldn't be better, in fact. But a couple of trips with Christmas in the middle means real life will put me out of cyberspace commission well into January. So we'll see you sometime in the new year. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

On to this week's PPP. This was our pic…


And here are our Honourable Mentions…

Nooooo! Wait! Don't go! Don't go!
Who else will I think of when I see maple leaves and poutine and funny political cartoons and waiting 20 minutes for Disqus to load and...
And....

*sob*

Please come back.

But... before you go, is there any chance you can help with the tech problem I just posted on the Jannaverse?
jannaverse said…
I feel like I should leave one more comment just so that 20 minutes was well spent...

So, um...

Two bloggers walk into a bar and one says to the other, "Can you please help me figure out this tech problem on my blog?"

The other blogger says, "Janna, you're drunk. We're in Arby's now."

Oh, I'll likely come back. I'm sure I'll be in a better frame of mind after a bit of a sabbatical.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, Janna, you make the internet worthwhile.
nonamedufus said…
Not bad, eh? Congratulations on your win over at Me-Me's.
nonamedufus said…
Indeed. I don't know her, do you?
nonamedufus said…
I'm looking forward to the break.

That's actually the nicest thing anyone has said to me all day long.
And it's 11pm here, so I doubt anyone will top it before midnight.
Congratulations!
If I wasn't so poor and frustrated about the tech thingy, I'd totally offer you a lovely gift basket filled with oranges and tiny soaps and beef jerky. And maybe a can of beans just to be weird.

Wait. Is this one of those Viagra side effects mentioned while the guy talks really fast?

Have a wonderful respite from the daily grind! See you in January!

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.
