Pause Ponder and Pugilists

A little bit of housekeeping before we get to this week's winner. This will be the last Pause Ponder and Pun for a little while. In fact this will be my last post for a while. And that's not all. You may not see me for a bit on Facebook or Twitter.  This will be interesting. Easier said than done but that's my intent. Nothing's wrong. Things couldn't be better, in fact. But a couple of trips with Christmas in the middle means real life will put me out of cyberspace commission well into January. So we'll see you sometime in the new year. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

On to this week's PPP. This was our pic…


And here are our Honourable Mentions…

Nooooo! Wait! Don't go! Don't go!
Who else will I think of when I see maple leaves and poutine and funny political cartoons and waiting 20 minutes for Disqus to load and...
And....

*sob*

Please come back.

But... before you go, is there any chance you can help with the tech problem I just posted on the Jannaverse?
jannaverse said…
I feel like I should leave one more comment just so that 20 minutes was well spent...

So, um...

Two bloggers walk into a bar and one says to the other, "Can you please help me figure out this tech problem on my blog?"

The other blogger says, "Janna, you're drunk. We're in Arby's now."

Oh, I'll likely come back. I'm sure I'll be in a better frame of mind after a bit of a sabbatical.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, Janna, you make the internet worthwhile.
nonamedufus said…
Not bad, eh? Congratulations on your win over at Me-Me's.
nonamedufus said…
Indeed. I don't know her, do you?
nonamedufus said…
I'm looking forward to the break.

That's actually the nicest thing anyone has said to me all day long.
And it's 11pm here, so I doubt anyone will top it before midnight.
Congratulations!
If I wasn't so poor and frustrated about the tech thingy, I'd totally offer you a lovely gift basket filled with oranges and tiny soaps and beef jerky. And maybe a can of beans just to be weird.

Wait. Is this one of those Viagra side effects mentioned while the guy talks really fast?
Hey! I miss a couple of days and then find out you're off on a reprieve. And tell Panama hello for us! tee hee. Kidding! Have a wonderful Holiday Season Dufus! It's a pleasure to read you. *smile*
Have a wonderful respite from the daily grind! See you in January!

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…
