Catching Up

Well I'm back from a week on the lake; eight days without access to the internet, my Blackberry, Twitter or my blog. We caught and ate plenty of fish - trout, bass, pickeral and pike. But imagine my surprise upon my return yesterday when I discovered that the posts I had set to post automatically - didn't. My apologies dear reader. While the posts are dated as intended I only just posted them manually, yesterday. So, anything since June 28th is a week later than intended. Sometimes technology sucks.






There was one thing upon my return that made me very happy. I've won another award while I was away! But what's so special about this award? Well, while the others were for captioning pictures on fellow bloggers sites, this award was given to me on the merits of MY site.


Yep, my good blogging buddy, fellow rocknroller and zombie devotee Quirky over at Musings of a Quirkyloon awarded me the creatively-named "I Heart Your Blog" award! Thanks for the blog love, Quirk. You rock.

Welcome back!! As long as you didn't catch West Nile along with those fish it sounds like a great break.

I don't know about that blogger Quirky. I've heard some strange stuff about her, but I'm always willing to give a blogger the benefit of a doubt..so if you say she's cool...then I trust you!

nispy: Good to be back. No viruses, just yummy fish. Hope all's well with you these days.

Quirky: You're too much, girl. You're one funny (and sweet) lady.

My mornings were totally messed up while you were gone. I'd log on just to re-read your last post.

This 'displacement activity' (heh, got that from a prior post!) totally sets the tone for the rest of my day wherein I have been known to aimlessly re-read everything I come across, as if for the first time.

Now that you're back, (whew) things are back to normal. Today was so much more productive.

Missed readin' ya!

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

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 hav
