blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • My inbox that is right in front of me is so tall that i just powered down.
  • Someone told me that the way to avoid post-vacation depression is to start planning the next one. Good advice.
  • I watched the ESPYs last night for the first time in years. Justin Timberlake hosted and that guy was great. Smooth, funny, and overall in control. (One song and dance skit had a Fake Tony Romo dancing with a Fake Jessica Simpson.) Edit: Funny video of part of show here.
  • Some pitcher for Minnesota had a perfect game against the Rangers yesterday through six innings. The some guy for Texas named Taylor Teagarden came to the plate in only his second major league game. And he homered. The Rangers won 1-0.
  • And as a sidenote about that homerun: It landed a foot from a lady moving out of the way ash she held what looked like a newborn. I always take my newborns out to the ballgame.
  • Laker Girl tryouts.
  • My lawn didn't look too bad. Did it rain?
  • You had to have seen it, but a lady from Fort Worth who lost her parents and brother in a plane crash in Kaufman County over the weekend was interviewd by one of the news stations last night. (I can't remember which one I was watching.) First, I'm never appearing on camera within 48 hours of the death of anyone close to me and, second, she didn't seem upset at all (but, once again, you really had to see it.)
  • I never listen to Russ Martin but he's made the headline after being arrested in Southlake for Aggravated Assault. Trust me, aggravated assault cases, due to the way the statute is ridiculously overbroad, are notoriously nothing more than silliness.
  • Not exactly fun stuff, but this was an interesting post about how Facebook/Myspace pics can become evidence of a defendant's character. That's ridiculous. My Facebook cover pic of me surrounded by Hooter Girls while I was only wearing a speedo reveals nothing about my character.
  • Looks like the Messenger website had issues while I was away. But, when you could finally see Friday's Update, we learned that the Newark City Council will pass an ordinance limiting the number of pets for each household to five cats and five dogs. Gold.
  • R and R reported on a suicide in Bridgeport. Horrible.
  • The new Batman movie looks great which isn't exactly saying anything since it set a box office record this weekend with $155 million.
  • This time one week ago I was throwing up in Cancun.
  • I just noticed that Tropical Storm Dolly is hitting Cancun right now.
  • While trying to catch up with the Bag Of Nothing's posts, this one broke my heart. The War in Iraq was not worth that one man's pain (or her's). Remember, Obama will get us out of there.
  • Forks with any type of covering over the handles bug me.
  • I hear more and more people say, "I don't like drama" (translation: "My friends can be freakin' crazy sometimes.") Ya know, me loves me some drama. I'm never involved in it, but I love watching it.
  • Indy girl catfight involving Danica Patrick (who I still can't stand.) And I can't understand what the other girl is saying, but that accent jazzes me.
  • I mentioned a couple of week's ago I mentioned I hadn't been in Burger's Lake in Fort Worth in years. And while I was away they shut it down due to a possible parasite.
  • A movie star I thought was the perfect girl but who stopped acting years ago: Deborah Foreman from Valley Girl and My Chauffeur.
  • Other news while I was away: Jesse Jackson is caught using the N Word on Fox while he thought tape wasn't rolling but Fox won't release it. You gotta be kidding. The man who railed against Seinfeld's Kramer for using the N-Word is being protected by Fox?
  • Man, did you see the story of the lady who went in for a three hour manicure/pedicure on her wedding day only to learn that her four year old son had died in her car outside of the salon? (I thought it was interesting that temperatures outside "only" got as high as 89 degrees - which apparently is too hot.) They aren't sure if they knew he was in the car.
  • That's Claire Danes in that pic up at the top. Can you believe that?

next thing you know newark city council will be telling us how many children we can have..they already want to ban giving birth to baby girls, they feel there are too many sluts in newark already!!

The fact that Fox news did not release the clip of Jackson using the no-no word is a smart move on their part.
I just watched the last Batman movie on F/X last night. It was pretty good. Looking forward to the new one.
I always thought Claire Danes was kinda "skinny" hot, but DANG! girl...eat something
Taylor Teagarden + Max Ramirez = Jerrod Saltalamacchia in fear for his job. Teagarden had a very memorable game. His first hit in the majors was a homerun, threw out his first baserunner, and called a good game. Even if he doesn't stay with the team, he will be going to Beijing for the Olympics, providing the timing is right

no such thang as tooo many slutz!!!

Claire Danes obviously doesn't eat chesseburgers.......or anything else!

Mercy, Clair Danes needs a transfusion of cheese burgers and milk shakes.

FREE RUSS!!

I always thought Russ moving to Southlake was a bad idea. Those people have no sense of humor, and since he has 5 million cars you know one day somebody was going to complain.

Barry you are so naive, Obama is already changing is tune on IRAQ. It is easy to promise anything while you are trying to get elected. I hope he doesn't get elected but if he does don't hold your breath waiting for those troops to come home.

Anonymous said...

Obama doesn't know what he'll do, and neither do we. He keeps changing too much to know.

Jessie blew it BIG TIME and basically caused the final nail to be put in his own political coffin, FINALLY!

Also on the Newark agenda..Whether or not their citizens must bow when they pass by.

Claire Danes could definitely use a boob job!

Oh, and welcome back. Upchucking on a Monday morning usually means Sunday night was a lot of fun! Glad you had a good time.

If you haven't been to Burgers lake in years then what parasite are they closing it down for?

I was kiddin so don't start cryin or somethin.

Forget Russ, throwing up and all that other "who cares" info.

Just want to say "welcome back". Now the Messenger can get up and running again. (Even though they wouldn't give you credit for the problems.)

Obama can't get it done, but if he does, our boys will be dying on our soil, along with a lot of civilians. That might break your heart too!

if this new storm D? turns just a little more north, we might get couple days of nice tropical vacation ourselves!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUNEYBUNCH!!!7-21-??... I Love you!!

Isn't Obammy the same guy that was a community activist in Chigago who cleaned up the neighborhoods and reduced the crimes of black on black violence? I think he needs to go back and finish the job because the Governor of Illinois wants to bring in the national guard because gang violence is running rampant. Has BO visited the 58th state yet?

to think that exposing jessie jackson for the real nigger he is would cause him any negative feelings from those who support him, would be like thinking ELVIS fans would abandon him if they found out he took drugs..JJ is their hope and inspiration, but he will never deliver what blacks expect from him....RESPECT...???WHY??$$$$??

Anonymous said...

why does obammy need over 300 foreign policy advisors ??? couldn't he save a hell of a lot of confusion by just having 1 real smart guy like BIG-DICK CHENEY to keep him well informed on the state of the world...??

While you were in Mexico, you missed the first two episodes of Generation Kill on HBO.

"Burger Buns" lake, I quit going there back in the early '90's, when I saw 2 dudes making out in the water, as in kissing while j@#$%^g each other off. Maybe this will answer that parasite question that's up above.

As a country, we probably need Obama to win. Just like we needed Jimmy Carter. It will take just such a disaster to bring about the rise of another Ronald Reagan.

If CNN or MSNBC had a Republican uttering the N word, I wonder if they would air it?

She'll never 1/2 to worry about breast cancer.

looks like she done had one of them double massectomys..

I thought she was a white Somalian guy in a bikini.

Hussein Obama will not, he's already backstepping from his campaign promises a year ago. He's a great liar like all the rest.

The movie thing, I've always wondered why they compare by dollars and not the number of tickets sold, because the cost has changed alot over the years of going to the movie.

M&M said...

Something happened to my post name, not sure what happened there. That last one was me.

Welcome back Barry.

M&M said...

What the ..? Why has my posting name changed? I haven't changed it and it won't change back. I'm M&M.

Yes you left us and the Messenger let us down.

After Obama waves his magic wand and fixes Iraq, he'll wave it over all financial ills, and then he'll cure cancer...
All together now, let's close our eyes, click our heels together and clap while chanting "change, change, change"...

goober said...

Hey Barry! With all the crud going on in Alvoid while you were gone and not even a mention? What's the world comin' to?

I'm now M-M, it doesn't like the ampersand sign anymore or something.

Teagarden played at Texas. "Some guy named Teagarden"?

found out about the suicide because neighbor had to find someone else to do her hair-messenger didn't have anything on it at that point.

At least Jimmy Carter had experience of being in charge of something, if only a peanut farm. That is more experience in leadership than Obamma has. What is it with these Democrates and their nominees for president? I will be glad when the party leaders, whose value system was born in the Vietman era, are dead and buried.

Claire Danes is ugly and always has been...she needs to learn that the whole tube top thing does nothing for her non-existant breasts...just makes them more....non-existant.

I saw that recently divorced military couple on Oprah awhile back (one of the only episodes of her show that I've watched in several years) and I was so inspired by their story. It makes me sad to learn that they have now divorced.
