Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Weird thing last night. Got up. Went to bathroom. Looked at self in mirror. Conclusion: Due to the way I slept on my hair, combined with some grey, I looked a little like Robert Tilton.
  • Did you the Fox 4 interview with the "meth guy" who threw his baby out of an attic into some bushes? (Baby is fine, by the way.) I normally take the position that a lot of people blame drugs for their screw-ups when they would be a screw-up even if they weren't on drugs. He didn't make me change my mind.
  • Michael Phelps is amazing. But isn't it odd, in all seriousness, that we wildly celebrate a guy whose contribution to this world is that he can swim fast?
  • The Dallas Police Department has 700 patrol cars but last week 210 are out of service for repairs or upgrades. (Heard it on the radio.)
  • I signed up for the NFL Season Ticket on DirecTV four years ago. Every year they automatically start billing me for it. Every year I don't stop them.
  • I finished season one of The Wire. Great stuff. But every single loose end was all wrapped up. I guess it'll be like 24 which starts out with a completely new story line every season.
  • I watched Open Water for the second time last weekend. Cheaply made, big time tension. and with an ending that didn't exactly make it the "feel good" movie of the year.
  • The last three bullet points started with "I".
  • The Ticket said that the Cowboy's preseason game on Saturday had a higher share of ratings in San Antonio than in Dallas.
  • Had to listen to Lynyrd Skynyrd when I made a call to someone's cell phone yesterday.
  • I wish we had "bullet trains" in the U.S.
  • The U.S. Men's basketball team is playing Angola in the Olympics right now. Is there anyone reading this that could pick out Angola on a map? Really?
  • Generic complaints about "those out of touch crooks in Congress" give me Tired Head.
  • The Rangers have absolutely no chance of winning the wild card slot (6 1/2 games back with three teams in front of them.)
  • Water polo looks hard. (But Yahoo apparently documented an incident where a female water polo player exposed a little too much. Deadspin covered it, so to speak, here. Careful.)
  • The morning skies around here at dawn are really beautiful
  • I always put my socks on before my pants. It creeps me out to put a bare foot through the inside of my pants leg.
  • What people refer to as "the meanest man" on death row says he won't go quietly tonight when his execution is scheduled. (And one guy on the radio this morning raised the interesting question of why do we give a death row inmate an elaborate "last meal.")
  • My last meal would be a Big Mac, Popcorn Shrimp, and Canadian Bacon pizza. But I'm pretty sure my stomach would be a tad bit too upset to eat it.
  • Ozzfest was in Frisco last weekend. I was never, even for a moment, interested in heavy metal. And I can't think of a worse experience than going to an outdoor metal concert in August in Texas.
  • My cruise control works for two weeks and then stops working for two weeks. Really weird.

Robert Tilton–I'll really be concerned once you start asking for $2,000 from every one so Jesus will answer their prayers!

I just imagine that old boy will be ably handled by the TDC staff

My last meal would be pork chops, gravy, mashed potatoes, fried okra, chicken fried steak, gravy, chicken fried chicken, gravy, jelly donuts, chocolate pie, chocolate cake, coacanut pie, meat loaf, gravy, iced tea, rib eye steak, gravy.....

Angola is on the mid-western coast of Africa. My ex-father-in-law worked there for 13 years.

My bro went to "Ozzfest" last weekend with my 16 yr old nephew. They thought it was great. It's beyond me how. Ozzy can barely speak a full sentence, much less sing.

Yep...I saw the news about the meth idiot who threw his baby out the window. Aren't you for LEGALIZING drugs? huh?

The Robert Tilton comment you made about yourself literally made me spit out my coffee. Freaking hilarious BG.

I found that most women’s breast looked better covered up. My first experience with bare breast was traumatic, but that is a long story that I won't bore you guys with.

It sounds like you might be ready for a new car. Judging by most of your comments I would suggest a little red Corvette convertible. To bad they don’t have a hybrid engine.

M-M said...

Dallas Police Dept. must have Ford vehicles.

Yes, I know where Angola is....well, wait a minute... when did they move from being up by Iceland?

I put my socks and shoes on very last.

Those outdoor concerts could be rated by the estimated total gallons of sweat excreted by the brainless concert goers.

I was gonna go to Ozzfest, but I decided I would slam my pecker in the car door instead.

I'm just sayin.

I wouldn't give that inmate even a glass of water--he'd probably through it at the staff. What an animal. Moral of the story-live an animal life, die an animal death. What a contribution to society he was.

I believe that polo player photo is what the super bowl folks call a 'wardrobe malfunction'.

Robert Tilton? Did you touch your hand to your hand in the mirror and heal thyself? And you should have hurried and sent yourself $1000 and in return sent yourself a special prayer cloth.

Well, Barry, putting your socks on first before the trousers sounds ok to me. You should send your directives to the guy found running nude down a road in Fort Worth this morning. Understand he only had on a shirt.

Surprise. Surprise.

Is Tilton a Republican?

AnObiter said...

Sometimes I scroll through the comments and just read what m-m writes....he/she is great.

I was mulling over the wtf? aspect of death row convicts getting that elaborate last meal just a few days ago. Tried to explain it to my curious 9 yr. old; she wanted to know "How come??" I didn't have a good answer. This guy should starve. My last meal would be Taco Bell steak quesadillas, a boatload of baked chips w/Don Mateo's queso, everything pizza with extra cheese, and a box of donuts. Like you, I'm not sure I'd be able to eat though...

The socks before pants lest you "creep out" is so very, very odd. What do you suppose will "get" you?

And yeah, it's probably time for a new car. The DivorceMobile should've gone out with the divorce bath water.

"Freebird!!!!!!!"

If I leave here tomorrow
Would you still remember me?
For I must be travelling on, now,
cause theres too many places Ive got to see.
But, if I stayed here with you, girl,
Things just couldnt be the same.
cause Im as free as a bird now,
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I cant change.

Bye, bye, its been a sweet love.
Though this feeling I cant change.
But please dont take it badly,
cause lord knows Im to blame.
But, if I stayed here with you girl,
Things just couldnt be the same.
Cause Im as free as a bird now,
And this bird youll never change.
And this bird you can not change.
Lord knows, I cant change.
Lord help me, I cant change.

PS Isn't it amazing how short the lyrics are compared to the length of the song.

11:51 so they get to use it and we don't? That's pretty unfair if you axe me.

Has the new season of Damages started? I friggin' love that show...that and Dirty, Sexy Money.

10:53, When is William Jefferson going to be indicted? He was caught on tape taking bribes and had 90 thousand dollars in his freezer. Check out YAF.org and see the deer in headlights look on his face when confronted about what type of freezer bag is best.

I wonder how many victims family members are surprised when the murderer is executed and it doesn't help even a little OR makes them feel even worse.

We are so brainwashed into believing it's "justice" and will provide 'closure' I bet a whole lot of people are shocked when it just isn't all that great after all- you'll rarely, if ever hear that kind of talk though because they aren't going to step out of line.

My vote for most interesting last meal still has to go James Edawrd Harris convicted of murder in Harris County in the 80s- a lump of dirt, which was sadly denied by TDCJ, poor guy.

The last heard Tilton was in Florida with a new wife, he can still be seen about three in the morning on some channel

1:55 - It's the same philosophy as when you fight with your brother or sister at home over something they said or did, but if someone outside your family gives them a hard time for the very same thing - say at school - you jump in there and take up for your sibling.

It's all about knowing the intentions behind it & when the "n" word is used within the black community, they know they are just taking a word that was used to keep them down and making fun of it and turning it into a word that is not trying to destroy them.............BUT when a white person uses it, they don't know any such thing; they can only assume it's been used as it has always been used against them from outsiders. As a white person, I completely understand that. I would not go near that word, out of respect.

205 the new season of damages has not started yet..it is a great show..!! so is the shield, it starts in a few weeks..the final season..

I'll do it... said...

11:51....if you're going to live in Wise county you better get used to that word. We don't succumb to the rest of the nutless country.

Farting preacher....HILARIOUS!!!

Tilton just built a $2 million house down in Floreeeda.

I would order "lambchops....extra rare."

(Sorry, double fake dude.)

And to the young lady that authored the comment at 2:49...

As the family watches in haste the murderer's heart begins to reach 190 beats per minute. The needle inches slowly into the vein opposite the elbow and begins to deliver thesweet nectar that will forever diss-allow the innocent to inherit the earth prematurely. As the body of the convicted starts to quiver and the lungs gasp for one more breath....the family of the victim begins to rejoice. It's over. No more will they be confused as to why the murderer was allowed to keep his life while the young girl lay in the cold ground.

4pm sorry if you think niggers deserve respect, they don't..they want everything free, well respect ain't free..if a black person earns my respect he will get it same as a white man, but only when it's earned. that nigger thug i referenced earlier deserves nothing less than what i hope the GREAT STATE OF TEXAS did to his no-good rotten black ass..he is a nigger or was i should say..i hope he burns in hell forever..!!

great news..the nigger is dead..!!!

I can't stand you all using the "N" word. I hate it - I hate hearing it - and I can't believe you use it so rampantly here or otherwise. Would you use it in front of a bunch of complete strangers or just here where nobody knows your name?

Just asking!

I could pick out Angola on a map. A childhood friend of mine was a missionary there, so I became interested in the place back in Junior High...just answering the question:)

Why are we so offnded by the use of the WORD NIGGER 8:47 ? They use it in fact it is theur usuall way of openly gretting one another! Whats up my Nigga? Heard it just the other day in fact ! SO why are they so offended by this when its in a good portion of thier SONGs?

" She aint no gold digger, she aint messin with a broke nigger" the main lyrics sung over and over again I might add !

even those high and mighty like the Revrends and those more apt to be their SPOKE's people the likes of those whom happend to be standing around when MARTIN LUTHER got killed and been riding on that WAVE ever scence use the WORD tho against it publicly! Open mike's caught whats his face using the word after berating others for using it!
\ Poor white dude tried to "FIT in amongst the BROTHERS" called that group of basket ball playing girls NAppy HOE's and got his Balls smacked for it! Hell just walk into a MUSIC store and stand there for 15 minutes and you will hear the latest hit song by some Rapper use the N word and brag about how he and his "CREW" can " TURN them BITCH'S OUT" meaning use them for Cash flow otherwise known as PIMPING!!! SO why all the fuss it is what it is and dont kid yourself otherwise DOUBLE standards do apply in this RACIALY divded world! can you say UNITED NEGRO COLLEGE? SAve a MIND? what say we even dare attempt to start a UNITED WHITE College? Just how far do you think thats going to go?Dare you to even mention it and see what kinda berating you get!!!
Oh sorry if this OFFENDS you for my lack of proper "STRUCTER and GRAMMER" I am the guy whom someone thinks is not of the age to write on this board so to clarify somthing here I am 42 but have sufferd a little health related illness which afected my brain in a big way so I am kinda relearning things that I used to be fluent and capable of doing with little effort or forthought!
