Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Take a drive around Decatur -- the trees are amazingly beautiful. More so that usual, it seems.
  • The commercial that has the two adult males in a stroller who start crying when they get hungry really creeps me out.
  • I jogged yesterday morning at around 6:30 a.m. What a surreal run. The aforementioned trees. Fog that had a flat cap at three feet off the ground. Sun rising behind majestic but sparse clouds. It's one of those "it's good to be alive" moments.
  • The Drudge Report as an interesting graphic/map on "how to watch the election" tomorrow night.
  • I've had 15 minutes of fame this weekend. First a Letter to the Editor (my first one ever) was printed by the Dallas Morning News, and then I get a quick reference in a story in the Star Telegram. (Uh, "skimpy clothes?" What the heck is he talking about?)
  • Went back and watched the Today Show to see what costumes they dressed up in. It was a Fairy Tale theme. It was incredibly lame.
  • Yeah, the Texas championship game against USC was a greater game than Tech/Texas on Saturday night. But for a regular season game, you'd be hard pressed to find a greater one.
  • Boy, the days of people ringing your doorbell to trick or treat are certainly dead.
  • When I was in high school, I was chased by a trooper after allegedly throwing a water balloon at him. Thank goodness I new the trails in the woods behind my house.
  • Someone emailed me a "Walmart Bingo Card."
  • There's still a chance I'm going to get a picture of the Frozen Frankenmonkey.
  • The Pussycat Dolls dressed up for Halloween. They are more shocking on stage.
  • Went to a Halloween Party of Friday night. Some (very nice) gal was grilling me about this silly blog and peppering me with questions. The guy next to me, seeing the pressure mounting, asked me in a whispered voice, "Do you want a basketball timeout?"
  • That bell ringer at the Texas Tech game always makes me uncomfortable.
  • I'm looking at a canister of Chocolate Covered Malted Milk Balls on my desk that some girl scout made me buy from her - I think at gun point.
  • People used to post on here that "racism doesn't exist anymore in America". Man, you don't see stuff like that anymore.
