Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • In an hour, our office staff will arrive and go into a freefall panic when they realize our computer server, uh, went off last night and won't turn back on.
  • I'm not particularly pleased about that myself.
  • The Space Shuttle is in Fort Worth this morning on top of a 747. Would someone please tell me one thing we've learned in the last 10 years from that multi-billion dollar space program?
  • The Heisman trophy will be awarded this Saturday but Texas Tech's Graham Harrell has been told to stay home in Lubbock. Three finalists will make the trip. Sheesh, at least give the boy a trip to New York.
  • I like the phrase, "gave me the Heisman" as in "I tried to hit on that girl but she gave me the Heisman".
  • Finally. Loop 820 between Northeast Mall and I-35 will go from four lanes to ten lanes. That's about 15 years too late.
  • Had a fellow Wise County defense lawyer call me and tell me he had two cases (unrelated) involving the same officer where he claimed to have a consent to search -- a claim that both clients denied. There were even witnesses to back them up. He asked me if I had any similar cases involving the cop, and I discovered I had one. Later, I had another lawyer call me up and say, "Let me guess, is it [correct name redacted]?. I've got one, too." Trouble brewing.
  • Is it "poin-SET-ah" and "poin-SET-ee-ah"?
  • Had a Bridgeport teacher ask me when I was 19 where a fellow classmate had gone to college. I answered. She asked why. I said, "I think because it has a good football program." She rolled her eyes and said, "That's a good reason." You know, at the risk of sounding shallow, there are worst reasons. I'd love to have something to cheer about every fall for the rest of my life.
  • Wade Phillips' Voice = Power Down.
  • There's been more Congressional debate over a $15 billion loan to the automakers than there was the $800 billion blank check to the financial institutions.
  • And won't the airlines be lining up next for free money?
  • I hate the cell phone and never talk on it. I saw on my bill yesterday that I had over 6,000 roll over minutes (with about 500 expiring for a reason I really don't understand.) I guess that is a lot.
  • I'm no Neil Sperry, but turn off your sprinkler systems when it is freezing in the mornings.
  • Commenter observation: When MzChief and Wordkyle get worked up, they really get worked up. (And I swear I've never met either one of them.)
  • The domain www.GeorgeWBushLibrary.com was owned by the soon to be built library. At least until they let it expire. A group from South Carolina pounced on it for less than $10 and then sold it back to the library for . . . get this . . . $35,000.

mzchief either has Asperger's or Autism.

Make no doubt - I am a BIG Tech & Graham Harrell fan and as anti TU as they come, but the the numbers that bear it out are ONLY passing stats. Holy hell, have they not seen Tebow run the ball?

Should go to Tebow, hands down.

You bought an iphone and you hate talking on it?

Gosh I hope it's not Rex...seriously he's been doing better...now that Female cop...not so much... and note to her...don't let a Cigarette dangle out of your Mouth while wearing your uniform w/ a baseball hat...looks like you should have a Blue dot softball in your hands or applying for a Licker license...

Minutes expire after 12 months. So every month some are lost and are replaced by more or less minutes.

What makes the iphone amazing is not it's ability to talk to someone just like on any ordinary phones. It's the stuff you can do with it when you're not talking. Duh.

Anonymous said...

the worst part about the minute thing is that when you do use up your monthly minutes and go to rollover you start with the most recent r/o minutes, not the ones accumulated 12 months ago.

They began the expantion plan for 820 in 1983, I kid you not. Twenty five years later it's still not completed much less even truly began. Government work at it's finest, which brings me to the Government Bailout comment. Said it before and I'll say it again, it's the tip of Nationalization in this Country. It's payback time for all in Washington. The Banks and Car Makers are calling the notes on Washington. They want all their money back they have given these politicians over the last 20 years and if they don't get it don't think some things won't be told, that's why it's a done deal. As well, the Banks own this Country and call the shots. Bush being a part of that group, Bilderbergers,etc. will not let them fail. Complete and total insanity in Washington and the citizens of this Country need to do something about it because it's way out of hand, everything they are doing with all the hearings, talking points, talking heads and the like is nothing but a show. It's going to happen and our children and their children will have to pay for it. Washington is bringing the citizens of this Country to their knees in order for us all to be at the mercy of Washington and the powers that be. And last but not least, there is not one person in Washington who gives a sh#t about the voting public in this Country but we still put them in office, give money to their campaigns and defend them at the drop of a hat. We need to wake up and stop being a bunch of sissy-ass, passive, patsies. Take Political Correctness out of our vocabulary and tell them to stick it.

I love having a great football team to cheer for every Saturday. There's nothing like the atmosphere inside a college football stadium for a big game. BOOMER SOONER!!

I used to wonder if MzChief was your alter-ego. I'm still not sure she's not.

"I like the phrase, "gave me the Heisman" as in "I tried to hit on that girl but she gave me the Heisman"."
Would that be considered an incomplete pass?

"Loop 820...from four lanes to ten lanes. That's about 15 years too late."
More like 25 or 30!

"Is it "poin-SET-ah" and "poin-SET-ee-ah"?"
poinsettia Pronunciation [poin-set-ee-uh, -set-uh]
from Dictionary.com
take your pick

"Had a Bridgeport teacher ask me when I was 19 where a fellow classmate had gone to college."
She makes it sound like you can't get a good education going to a college with a good football program. Just because that's the reason he went there, doesn't mean he won't get his learn on

"Wade Phillips' Voice = Power Down."
Fake Wade Phillips' Voice = priceless

"When MzChief and Wordkyle get worked up, they really get worked up."
And the haters, too

"And won't the airlines be lining up next for free money?"

Just a couple of days ago, the CEO of American Airlines was quoted as saying that the government needed to spend money to improve the infrastructure at the airports. I am sure that this was just the first step and it won't be long before they are begging Pelosi for money.

I bet I know which WCSO officer it was that went ahead and searched w/out consent. I don't even like him on my scene.

What really gets me is how these democrats stand up in front of Americans and try to act like they just rode in on their big white horses to save us all from "this administration's" bad policies. How can they act like they are new to the scene and can save our sorry asses..?

Collectionsite said...

American Airlines was bailed out first by the Goverment and the employees also took a 30% pay cut to stay in buisness. And what happened ???? Our CEO Arpey took a MULTI MILLION Dollar Bonus more than once as did other top Exec's

Also I just got back from Costa Rica and meet the branch manager for AIG from the West Coast and he shared with me that they WILL BE BACK for more money.

MzChief has "Daddy Issues" and Wordkyle has "Life Issues". But then again ... Who doesnt have issues?

what's the story on principal bullard resigning from alvoid ?

wordkyle said...

Geez, why did my name come up? I've tried to throttle back since the election. Unless stupid Liberals make stupid Liberal comments, of course. Then they deserve what they get.

By the way, did you see how high Obama's approval ratings were on how he's handling the transition? When's the last time you heard the media discuss -- approvingly or not --- how well an incoming President was doing in the transition?

Obama's already having to deny any involvement with a scandal. Being a product of the notoriously corrupt Chicago political machine, he may have an interesting first couple of years in office.

Yeah, like going to college and then law school, and still incorrectly using "worst" instead of "worse".

There has been nothing gained from the space shuttle. It was supported during the cold war to shuttle/repair satellites. It was also important as a cold war symbol in its own right. The Russians put their own shuttle to sleep when they came to grips with the fact its only real worth was supporting another symbol of congressional gullibility and mans ignorance of scientific prioritization- the international space station.
