30 Minus 2 Days of Insanity


It's that time again. My brother Steve's birthday? Yeah, that too. Happy Birthday Happy Wanderer.  Meanwhile, February is almost upon us and that means another round of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing - or as some would call it "Pass the Vodka" - as coordinated by the lovely and talented Montreal blogger extraordinaire Nicky Eff. I think the equally talented but not nearly as lovely Cheesy Mike may have a role in this too. They both are the well-known and much-loved proprietors of We Work For Cheese. Although, coming back with another round of this writing exercise they are really starting to push their luck.

What do they have in store for us this time around?

1. Gouda
2. It was no accident
3. Temporary insanity
4. When Hell freezes over
5. The empty bottle
6. Scatterbrained
7. Hint, hint
8. Damn
9. Dylan
10. Zombies
11. Succubus
12. One bite
13. Incommunicado
14. It has to be aliens
15. My ears are ringing
16. Shakespearean English
17. I faked it
18. Liars
19. Tastes like chicken
20. Chaos
21. Yes, I made that
22. It’s only a dream
23. There are things
24. And then she said
25. Social media
26. Naked and lost
27. How did you find out?
28. And then my brain exploded

That empty bottle in prompt 5 doesn't appear soon enough for my liking, nor does prompt 28. These prompts will be quite the challenge for many of us participating. The upside is I usually post about two items a week on my blog. If I write every day for 28 days, that'll take me well into 2015 without writing another word.

Like a lamb being led to the slaughter I have blindly accepted the challenge posed by Nicky and Mike. But this year is going to be different. I'm going to do something with this challenge I've never done before. What do I mean by that? You'll have to come back February 1st to find out.

Be there or be square.

I imagine "God" will be one of the expletives I use early on and from there it will use go downhill.
Nicky said…
Ooooh now I'm very curious as to what you are going to do. And it was all CheesyMike's fault, btw. I had nithing to do with it.
nonamedufus said…
Well some of the prompts are pretty cheesy but somehow I don't think they're Mike's fault. Oh, and as to what I'm going to do? I'm going to write in the nude. You're probably very thankful this isn't 30 days of photos, eh?

On February 29th, the theme is "Stubborn Fool".
Shawn Ohara said…
I would hate to see those exposures.
mike said…
I may take the blame for 1, maybe 2, and POSSIBLY 3 of the prompts, but this whole sick, sick, exercise is all CheesyNicky's idea. And it's her fault.
Wow! What a tease you are, Dufus! To leave us hanging like that without telling us what your master plan is? Outrageous!
nonamedufus said…
Not much longer to wait, Paula. Then all shall be revealed.
nonamedufus said…
Um, Shawn, there is no February 29th this year.
nonamedufus said…
I knew it! (Which ones can I blame you for Mike?)
nonamedufus said…
You're just being negative, Shawn.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
