Sunday Funnies

I refuse to shop at all during Thanksgiving weekend. Then again, I hate shopping, so it's not a real sacrifice.
I understand Santa's frustration. Twitter can be a cruel place. Usually I hang in pretty tame circles but even still sometimes "controversy" spills over there too. Luckily, not most of the time.

I think my blog still posts automatically to Twitter but it's been some time since I've been active there. The only place I'm active these days is Facebook and that can be scary sometimes, too.

Gee, I'd hate to be on your Christmas list. Oh, yeah. You probably don't have one.
I have one. It's just very short... and most everything I get is available online. (It's so handy only having one child.) Truth be told, I don't usually buy things for people unless I see things that strike my fancy. (Like caution tape socks.) So the rest of the relatives are usually SOL. Although, if I had grandchildren, it would be another story.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

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 …
