30 Days of Photos - #22 - Portrait


Ha, ha, ha, what a great collection of the week's political cartoons. Where? Over on dufus daze, naturally.

****

Welcome to 30 Days of Photos. We're in the home stretch with just a week to go. Thank God! (Did I just say that out loud?) So this is where 18 bloggers are participating in posting a photo a day for 30 days. Here are the other 17 you can visit, who are equally happy there's only 7 - aw damn, Cheryl tells me there's 8 - more days, after you've been here:



A portrait with a twist...of tangerine(s), baby tomato and a banana. 

Aw, why so serious?

Just one more week to go.

Great idea for this gawd-awful prompt.

I hate to burst your bubble, but someone's going to, but there are actually 8 very long soul-sucking days left to post. I am so very sorry.

You were supposed to say you chose fruits because today is "Earth Day". You would have gotten bonus cookies for that. Don't say I didn't try to help. ;)

I meant after today, but thanks a lot for rending me there Cheryl.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, I never thought of that. Did you know the tomato is a fruit?
Cheryl said…
Ah dufus, dufus, dufus. If you count the days on your fingers (like I did) you'll see that there are 8 (23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30). I wouldn't harsh your mellow on purpose. It's just that numbers don't lie.
That is a GREAT idea! Indeed, why so sad! Turn that banana frown upside down!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I knew you guys didn't want to see a picture of me, so I looked around the house and this is what I came up with. The shadows in the pic are from the afternoon sun shining in the kitchen window.
nonamedufus said…
Math was never my strong suit, Cheryl. It's why I went into journalism.
It's good, but it could have been grape. (Awww, I slay myself sometimes. ;)
Cheryl said…
I didn't go into accounting on purpose, it just made sense.
Cheryl P. said…
A portrait and a still life all in one. What an artist you are!! I agree with Katherine, you look sad.
laughing mom said…
Didn't your mother ever tell you not to play with your food?
nonamedufus said…
Boy, you stomped all over that one, Bryan.
nonamedufus said…
I am sad. There's still another week of this foolishness to go!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah! She did! How did you know? I didn't always listen to my mother, though.
nonamedufus said…
Something doesn't add up here.
Wine, wine, wine: that's all I ever hear from you.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I'm so embarrassed. Sorry. Now I'm red.
Cabernet or merlot or pinot noir or...? What shade of red? Color me white...Zinfandel.
Ziva said…
Hah, very funny idea, dufus.
nonamedufus said…
I have them once in a while.
nonamedufus said…
I'm hard "pressed" to know.
Quirkyloon said…
Nice humorous twist. What a fruit! heh heh
nonamedufus said…
And to think it all started with just a seed of an idea.
I'd like to know how long you spent polishing that baby tomato.
nonamedufus said…
You know, Mo, over here we call that brown-nosing and for the record there was none of that involved in this.
00dozo said…
Haha! Totally unpredictable yet fitting! At least you had fruit - I had feet (or foot - my other left foot).

;-)
00dozo said…
All right, guys. Put a cork in it already.

;-)
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, take care with that, Hop-along. I'm glad you found my photo "appealing".
nonamedufus said…
I'm "vine" with that.
Mariann said…
Yes. That is why I didn't say "fruit and vegetables".
Linda Medrano said…
What a face!

But where's the figure?
meleahrebeccah said…
love the fruit smiley face!
nonamedufus said…
Orange you glad I thought of this?!
nonamedufus said…
If a person who eats veggies is a vegetarian, then what's a person who eats fruit?
meleahrebeccah said…
I sure am! Ahahahahahhaah
Nora Blithe said…
Ha! You made me laugh! Thank you.
nonamedufus said…
See? I couldn't have done that with a portrait of a cat!

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

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik
