Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • The Monday after a long weekend is never-a-good.
  • I finished the Turkey Trot with a time of 1:10:33. The official results even had the time down to a hundredth of a second which seems a little silly.
  • Assistant County Attorney Thomas Aaberg showed up at the last minute and ran a 59:31 which included a bathroom break because he, uh, showed up at the last minute.
  • My favorite part of the race is at the six mile mark where the course loops you back and you see downtown Dallas which is where the finish line is. It is at that moment, every year, that I'm thankful for my health. Almost got a little teary eyed this time. Or maybe that was just because the pain in my legs.
  • It's December.
  • Given enough time, I think everyone will disappoint you.
  • My sickness went away on Thursday but not before my mom packaged up a bunch of loose Vitamin C pills for me to take home. Looking at them on my passenger seat in a baggie made me think I was soooooo going to be spread eagle on the ground if a cop had stopped me that night.
  • I don't believe that Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year, and I don't believe that Cyber Money is the busiest online shopping day of the year.
  • Bridgeport's opponent this weekend, Liberty Hill, is apparently very good. If you're the kind of guy that likes message board smack talk about the game, you'll love this.
  • There was a motorcycle death on 114 in Irving on Friday but the tragedy of the weekend has to be the Waxahachie family driving into Mexico whose SUV goes off of a bridge that had been washed out. Seven died.
  • The great Sarah Silverman is 38 today.
  • How can a show like The Deadliest Catch suck you in like it does?
  • At the urging of a buddy, I created a Facebook account. After three days I had one friend. I just sat there looking at the screen with Barry tears rolling down my Barry cheeks.
  • Remember girls, don't have relations in a the men's restroom with someone who is not your husband or your picture will be posted on the Internets.
  • Holy cow, Baylor almost beat Texas Tech on Saturday but I didn't know that Tech's quarterback had two fingers crushed on his non-throwing hand and that he "underwent four hours of surgery Sunday on the pinkie and ring fingers on his left hand, with 17 pins and two plates inserted in his hand to heal nine separate breaks." And he never came out of the game.
  • I spent 20 minutes of Friday morning watching Jerry Springer. I'm not sure, but I think it involved infidelity amongst family members and a fight on stage ensued.
  • I may find an out of state bowl game to go to. I haven't done that since 2004 but the stars seem to be aligning for it.

Can she sue her surgeon? Those are so huge that they are ugly and distract from an otherwise beautiful woman.

I wish my Thanksgiving turkey's breast had been that big --- would still be eating leftovers!

That poor girl may suffering from sickness, like elephantitus of the breast or something. I'd like to help out with any therapy she may need. I'm a real "hands -on" guy.

I thought the bridge to nowhere was in Alaska.

I live in Bridgeport. Neither Bridgeport nor Decatur wins the award for the stupidest fans. It seems to be a dead heat to me.

Wow, I'm feeling nauseated from the non-humbleness of both fans, Liberty Hill and Bridgeport, but I would say the Panthers win out in that category. Hope the Bulls end the Panthers winning streak saturday!

I got a picture of me Photoshoped kinda like that chick but I'm a guy.

Does anybody want to see it?

Barry, take it easy on the vitamin C pills. Vitamin C has been shown to accelerate the aging process in males due to our high blood iron content. If you start taking daily C, you really need to give blood at least twice a year.

Barry,

As someone who has worked in retail for about 10 years, I feel I can clear up the Black Friday confusion for you.

Is it the busiest shopping day of the year?

The answer is yes and no.

Yes, because the stores experience the most customer traffic that day.

No, because it is not the biggest sales day of the year. Stores typically bring in the most money on the 23rd of December.

liberty hill can be beat!!! but it will take a flawless game by bport to do it, and the green brothers being injured doesnt help bports chances either, lets just hope that the bulls can get healthy by game time. GO BULLS!!!!!

There's nothing great about Sarah Silverman, unless you count her great lack of tact.
