Georgina: I chuckle over how some cartoons portray how we use social networks compared to the social activism of the people in the streets of Egypt, Libya and so on.

IWBY: You said that already. Ha, ha.

Can't help but believe that Mubarak is laughing his ass off at the way things are going in Libya. Maybe not, but he's , Mubarak, still got his money.

I'm with Donnie. Mubarak can't be suffering too much with his billions. Yeesh.

Great funnies. The second to last one was my fave. Although all were verra verra good ones!

Funny, sad, and yet oh so truthful... half the time all these Tweets, status updates, and emails make me want to send everyone snail mail ;)

Donnie: Do you think it's HIS money?

Quirks: There's rumours Gadaffi's got billions banked in Britain. He's no dummy...just a despot.
nonamedufus said…
Nips: My bills come via snail mail and that's just fine by me. I'm in no hurry to get them.

meleah rebeccah: The last one seems to have gotten a chuckle out of most folks. I don't know why some people think they have to share their cell conversations with everyone around them.

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
