Pause Ponder and Pop

Well it's Saturday and time to take a look at who said what about this week's pic. Remember our lovely ladies?

I think I may have scared off a few would-be captioners with my interpretation:

Mel B just never knew there'd be a Spice Girls reunion.

But I didn't scare everyone off.

For example here are a couple of HMs (Honourable Mentions. Get with the program, eh.)

One of these drinks is not like the others.

The battle of the sodas were out fizzed this year by newcomer 
and former Biggest Loser contestant Lola the Big Cola.

But our winner is a newlywed from Montreal who, for some reason, saw fit to bare his soul to us this week…

I've been known to take a Coca-Cola or Fanta to bed, and maybe even a Pepsi. 
But the last time I took a Big Cola to bed I was up all night.
Shawn @ Stubborn Fool

Well, good for you Shawn. I guess that box of Viagra came through for you, eh? Congratulations, though, you be hangin' with the dufus this week. And I refuse to ask you "How's it hangin' eh?" I think we already have a good idea.

Here's your badge you old smoothie you.

Hey, make sure you join us next Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun. Like the lottery people keep telling me, "You gotta be in it to win it!"

Gee, Shawn, they say you should call a doctor if it lasts more than 4 hours. Are you complaining or bragging? Congratulations on your big…win.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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 have Decem…
