Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Tony Romo was sporting a tricked up hat during the post game interviews. Kind of like he was channeling Payne Stewart.
  • Ended up at Pete's Piano bar in downtown Fort Worth on Saturday night. When I left before midnight the place was packed and there was a line about a half a block long to get in.
  • A girls night out bachelorette party is always fun to watch. There's always the bride to be acting like a queen, then there's two or three of her friends who are triple drunk, and then there's always the girl that looks like she is ready to kill every other girl in the party.
  • Meanwhile, over in Dallas after midnight, there was a shooting and death at a club in the Uptown area. Remember kids, nothing good happens after midnight.
  • And I could have been at the World's Best Bottom contest.
  • Barack Obama was on 60 Minutes but really didn't say much. But when asked how his life had changed since the election he said he is finally sleeping in his own bed. I bet he hadn't done that in months.
  • Skirt with boots is a good look.
  • Every girl I know seems to love The Notebook. And I've never seen it. I wonder if it's a Dell or Hewlett Packard?
  • Every NASCAR driver seems to have a hot blonde wife -- just like in Talladega Nights.
  • Whenever I get stuck in a long line at a convenience store, I want to say, "This is a convenience store, right?" But I never would.
  • I'll be in Manhattan this weekend and OU/Tech are playing on Saturday night. I didn't really plan on that being the game of the year when the trip was planned.
  • I ate at Enrique's, a new Mexican restaurant at Basswood and Beach in north Fort Worth on Friday. And Enrique himself sent some free stuff over to our table.
  • I haven't watched Nip/Tuck in forever. But, the best I recall, it jumped the shark pretty early.
  • Everything you wanted to know about Bridgeport's first playoff opponent.
  • Kept seeing the names of Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar on Sunday. I learned it had something to do with an octagon.
  • Edit: As part of my economy implosion watch, Citigroup just announced it is cutting 50,000 jobs.

I read that Brock Lesnar had to cut weight to make the UFC's upper limit of 265 lbs. If the UFC really, truly tests for 'roids, then this guy is a natural behemoth.

And with your marathoner's legs, you probably should wear long skirts with your boots to achieve the look you want.

Too uppity to say New York City? Or did you mean Manhattan, Kansas?

How would those Tech girls do on Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

Survey says...not well.

Obviously, you've not come into contact with many Texas Tech girls. They've got it all, looks and brains--you'll never know!

American business and investors are afraid of statements that Obama has made. The market is reacting to his election and the damage done by the Democrat sponsered Community Reinvestment Act, aka subprime lending. I am glad that I live in a rural area where my home is paid for and where I can kill or grow something to eat. A hard rain is go'n to fall. This is not going to be fun.

OK...so the verdict on Enrique's? (don't let the free food sway your opinion : )

Are soup lines subsidized by the gubment?...if so does the soup contract go to the lowest bidder..and if so can this work be exported to other countries...luckily my business has to do with something with a trigger and goes bang...which peoples cant get enough of with an economy reeking of the winds of change!But im thinking of a soup company to pay the gubment for osama bin obama's redistribution taxes!

Uncle Fester, No, the soup line contracts are no bid with Haliburton. You know that, you bad boy. Or Bad girl. Or Bad Republican Log Cabin Homo. Whatever.

Since some seem to agree about how things have gotten a little boring on here (nothing personal BG), how about some news from Decatur.

You can start with the change of leadership at all five campuses and how the year is going.

How 3 of the people in leadership could care less about Decatur since they don't even live here (which I actually don't have a huge problem with).

High School - things don't seem so bad. Although some seem to think the AD is a little bit of a bully.

Middle School - would be great if the leadership would get a backbone when it comes to discipline (everyone could see this problem coming from a mile away).

Intermediate - don't even get me started here. Assistant P not so bad. Head P lucked into the position and his past co-workers were pumped to see him go.

Carson - Things sound like they aren't doing so bad. Not great, but not so bad either.

Rann - once one of the top 2 schools along with Intermediate, it is quickly becoming a snowball. Be very surprised if the current leadership makes it past 2 years. There is a reason they were turned down for a position a few years ago, and this person is an actual Decaturite! Power hungry my way or the highway. All about me!

There Barry, that should energize things a little.

Enrique had a place in Lake Dallas forever. He opened a new spot across from Lantana on FM 1830 just north of Bartonville some years ago. Its always been busy when we've been there. The food is OK, the portions are larger than most places.

He's also a huge Minnesota Vikings fan.
