Pippy Longstalking was my mother.
Pat Kumicich said…

nonamedufus said…
Hey, stalking can be a dirty business.

You know, last night I was thinking, "I wonder if anybody will take a photograph of some sort of vegetable stalk?" And for some reason, you didn't come to mind. But now that I see it, I realize that I wasn't thinking at all, because you're the Internet's undisputed king of the pun. I feel like an idiot now. A total fool.

Smart person's healthy photo! :)
nonamedufus said…
Well, it was one way to go. A crunchy way.
nonamedufus said…
Now don't celery me short.
nonamedufus said…
Now, now, don't be so hard on yourself. We'll have to take a look at just what's at the root of your problem.
nonamedufus said…
Flattery will get you everywhere.
Linda Medrano said…
This made me laugh out loud! Clever!
nonamedufus said…
It's just the way my mind works. It was the first thing that came into my head. Good thing we had celery in the fridge. Otherwise I would have been stumped.
meleahrebeccah said…
I like it. I like it a lot.
nonamedufus said…
We always stock up on celery.
nonamedufus said…
Me too. I chop it up into a tuna salad or in a peanut butter sandwich. Or eat it with Cheez-Whiz on it.
Paula Wooters said…
Looks like you have quite a few stalkers there, Dufus.
ladyV said…
ah ha! good one. i didn't think of this. plants yes, celery no.
nonamedufus said…
A veritable salad of them.
nonamedufus said…
I've got the makings for a few Bloody Marys here.
Jamie Baker said…
Dadgummit Dufus, get outta my head!!
nonamedufus said…
Head? You're thinking of lettuce. This is celery.
Danielle Batog said…
I absolutely cracked up at your 'hanging out' sidebar photo...very funny. Need some blue cheese dip to go with that celery...but first the hot wings.
nonamedufus said…
I've been using that avatar since I started blogging. Dip and wings? Great idea!
Nicky said…
You are, without a doubt, the punniest, Dufus. Very clever, mon ami!
nonamedufus said…
Well, I try. I don't quite know where it stems from.
It took me a minute and then I laughed outloud. You are SO SMART!
meleahrebeccah said…
I like it. I like it a lot.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, thanks. You've got a golden heart. (Did you know that's a type of celery?)

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
