Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Got word that MzChief was swimming outdoors at 7:13 a.m. this morning in Runaway Bay. That's probably about the time Jarhead's new nanny (I'm sorry, au pair as they say in Granbury) was bringing him breakfast in bed.
  • I think I'm the only one who gets excited over Google Streetview.
  • I turned the office thermostat down too low last night. I'm freezing at this moment.
  • I'm not sure where Megan Henderson has been this week, but Krystle Gutierrez is looking pretty, pretty good on Fox 4.
  • Stumbled across the second overtime of the Mavs/Spurs last night. Let me recap: Dribble. Foul. Free throw. Free throw. Time out. Dribble. Miss. Dribble. Time out. Foul. Free throw. Free throw. [Me asleep.]
  • Someone behind me flashed their headlights before going around me this morning. It was on 287 with two lanes going the same direction. Why did he do this? Edit: No, I wasn't in the left lane. I'm not an idiot.
  • I was appointed special prosecutor on a Wise County case where a school official pulled out the loose tooth of a child. Yep. Those are the facts. Did you know that a special prosecutor has the right to say, "This is the silliest thing I've ever seen, and I'm not going to waste a dime of taxpayers money on it?"
  • See what I mean about the predicted high of 60 yesterday?
  • A couple of weeks ago I mentioned the prosecutor in Harris County who blogged about the day he was fired because a new DA was coming into office. He's still at it. But now he's gone to whining. Suck it up, big fella, and move on with a little dignity.
  • I like Letters to the Sports Editor that are in the Morning News on Sundays. I don't know why they don't do that everyday. It fills space and every newspaper is trying to fill space.
  • Recession? The Yankess just agreed to pay pitcher CC Sabathia $140 million over six years. My Bridgeport education tells me that's $23.33 million dollars a year.
  • The Illinois governor (arrested yesterday on trying to sell a Senate seat) has one mop of a head of hair.
  • Every straight man went to work today even if was dying of death. But if you've got a co-worker who is out today, prepare to give him the business.
  • Nothing says "I love you" like a married couple killing a 16 year old cheerleader that the man had an affair with. Wait. What?
  • My daily winter dilemma: Put suit jacket on and overcoat jacket on and feel like a pig-in-a-blanket on the way to work, or leave coats off only to freeze while putting them on once I park the car at work.
  • Time Wasted? I think not: Smoking hawt San Diego Cheerleader pictures.
  • Crazy dream last night. I was on a "secret mission" (really) in the Middle East. I spent a lot of time underground.
  • The lady in the photo claims that is her with her daughter. Hello, Mother Of The Year.

I like seeing street view, especially since I'm 1200 miles away. It's nice to see Wise County hit the 'big time'.

As for the flashing - When I went to get my license in North Carolina, I had to take the test and there in NC, you are required (although, few do since I lived in a town full of outsiders (read, Marines)) to flash before you pass. It annoyed the crap out of me. Nothing makes you want to play bumper cars more than someone flashing you as they pass...

I've used street view to help map-impaired acquaintances who call me when they're lost in an unfamiliar city. Using street view, I can say things like, "Do you see the 7-Eleven on your right? Turn there."

I do have a question, though. How come when I look up 303 W. Main it's a used furniture store? Is lawyering not paying as much as it used to?

Bobby said...

Megan Henderson has been doing the Toys For Tots this week at different locations throughout the Metroplex! you can catch her on the evening news but it still isn't as great as seeing her on the morning news....she is all bundled up to stay warm!!! But then again, Krystle is fun to look at too!!!

DB said...

Regarding flashing the lights before passing... I occasionally do this accidentally. Since the turn signal and dimmer switch are on the same stalk it is easy to flash the lights when reaching to use the turn signal. The moral of this story is, do not use your turn signal!

Anonymous said...

The reason I flashed my lights at you Barry was because you were in the fast lane. How about stay in the right lane un less you have to pass some dumb ass on his cell phone.

I hate the Yankess and i hate these profesional players who think they are worth $140 million. so i hope he chokes!!

If you prosecute the tooth pulling thing you will need to go back and get my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, grade teachers a principal, as well as the bully in 3rd grade who shall remain nameless. My God some of these parents need to remove their head from their arse. Probably ran out of money from the McDonalds hot coffee case.

Yep, here we are in difficult, economic times, people losing their jobs, homes, cars, a lot of people will find it difficult to even have a good Christmas for their children. Then, we have the Federal Government bailing out companies who's only problems were greed, mismanagement, no management, no oversight and pure pompus-ass attitudes. With all these money problems, in this Country, we now have the Yankees paying a guy $23.33 million dollars a year to stand on a mound of dirt, throw a ball, pick his butt, spit and scratch his balls. What a deal! On top of all that we have the schools, television and the Federal Government telling our children to be responsible, hell, no wonder kids today want to tell those in charge to "Blow it out their arse". They see whats going on in this Country and realize it's all a bunch of crap. They don't see anyone being responsible for Jack Squat and realize we're all going to be eating Government cheese in the near future and living in a van down by the river.

"Hello, Mother Of The Year."
Is there a category for MOTYILF?

"But if you've got a co-worker who is out today, prepare to give him the business."
Heard about this one last night. Determined I would come to work even if I had to walk.

"The Illinois governor (arrested yesterday on trying to sell a Senate seat) has one mop of a head of hair."
He looks like a weasely white-collar crook. Are all Illinois politicians crooked? I'm just sayin' (and implyin')

"...Letters to the Sports Editor... It fills space and every newspaper is trying to fill space."
What they want to fill that space with is advertising. Letters don't pay the bills

"Someone behind me flashed their headlights before going around me this morning."
If you were in the left lane, it was because he was annoyed that you were going slower than he was (regardless of your speed). If you were in the right lane, he was being a jerk or it was an accident, as somebody else pointed out.

"...Krystle Gutierrez is looking pretty, pretty good on Fox 4."
YES! Yo quiero las chicas!

Belgian waffles, cafe au lait, grapefruit juice, bacon all served up by an au pair in a French maid outfit.

Shit, I'd better get to the office before people start thinking I'm gay.

Basketball and Time-Outs--the time out situation is ridiculous. Restrict how much time-outs are available and make'em play basketball. You all realize these timeouts are great for the TV coverage--they get to air a HUGE amount of ads over a short period of time. What's sad is this, I'm sure these timeouts exist more for ads than for the sport. (Makes you wonder if the teams get a bonus for being "close" and thereby getting all those ads aired?) I smell a conspiracy!!

I find Google street view a very convenient 21st century
method for stalking ex-girlfriends by satellite while in the comfort of my home, who have used my kind heartedness for their personal as well as financial gain and then dumped me like some rotted or radioactive refuse along the way to duping some other unsuspecting male.

Flashing your lights before you pass is a means of letting the person you are passing know what you are fixing to do. Some people do not pay attention to the car behind them so it is a safety precaution. Truckers do this. If you are a nice guy you can flash back at the trucker once he clears you and let him know you are expecting him to move back over to your lane and that it is safe/clear for him to do so.

That chick looks like the daughter of a certain Wise County attorney and the kid looks like the owner of Magic Pony (in her younger days). Weird.

Politics in Illinois, especially the City of Chicago, has been crooked for a very long time. The "Party Machine" system tends to do that. This guy has taken it to a new high of STUPID though! He's one sick SOB!!

Flashing your lights before you pass another vehicle is a good idea for several reasons. One might be to make sure the driver of the vehicle that you're passing wakes up before you pass him/her. That way, they aren't startled and react by turning into you.

It's evident what they think of your professional abilities around here in Wise County! Who else would they even consider as a special prosecuter in that kind of case! Proof positive that "The Audasity of Hope" has begun, and right here in Wise County too!

I was swimming at 6:00 AM and it was FREEZING cold until I dove into the heated water. Thank Heaven I remembered to turn on the patio heater prior to diving in or I would STILL be in the water.

Google StreetView is awesome. I marvel at the time and expense expended to take pictures of that many miles of roadway.

Excellent call on the temp and update of the rainstorms. If this lawyer gig does not work out for BU-Bear I see a future for him as a weather man.

Murray Newman needs to put on his big boy pants and get over himself. The only way Newman will ever have dignity is if it is on sale at Wal-Mart and someone buys it for him.

I get a giggle when a corrupt politician gets burned by their own words. I hope Blagojevich ends up with 15 years IN the penitentiary and a 1/2 million in fines as well as being left penniless due to legal fees.

What is wrong with people who HONESTLY believe that killing another human will make things right and make them feel better about themselves? People who lack a sound and steady moral compass SUCK.

During cold weather, I always wear my light jacket/sweater while driving. If I am going to be outdoors for any length of time I put on my coat when I get out of my car.

I rarely remember my dreams.

*******************************

Just a side note. I went to a J C Penney store for the first time EVER. They have high quality towels at EXCELLENT prices. The quality of many of Penney's items out shines the overpriced tattered garbage being sold at Macy's. I miss Foley's. Due to the level of clutter and crowding of merchandise, I am overwhelmed by Dillard's.

Wow - what a photo!......this is really mommy of the year.

Wonder what her son wears on the beach?

In the 3rd picture of the cheerleader, is there a Brillo pad stuffed up in there?

I'm just sayin.

That google street view is cool but freaky in the same way!! I like how I am able to virtually walk down the streets of Ralls Texas and see the places where i grew up.

mzchief said...

I often wonder if it ever crosses Barry's mind that anyone of the 20 something cheerleaders, he ogles, is young enough to be his daughter?

Brillo pad...hmmm, I got some scrubbing to do! There's this one spot that I can't get clean, no matter how much I (sc)rub it

He/she flashed their lights at you because you (and many, many others) were in the left lane of the highway going slower than the traffic in the left lane. DRIVES ME CRAZY!

I would like to know who mzchief is. She seems to be a little full of herself. "I went to a J C Penny store for the first time EVER", give me a break! I would like to buy her for what she is worth and sell her for what she thinks she's worth.

A little full of herself? Where have you been? She is W-A-Y full of herself.

W-A-Y full? She's so overfull of it she's trailing that stuff everwhere.

I buy my towels at Walmart and find that they dry me off just as well as those I received last Christmas that came from Bed, Bath & Beyond. In fact, I prefer the Walmart towels because they are not so thick and take up less room on the self of my bathroom closet.

Skippy, can you tell me the party affiliation of the Illinois governor? Every news account I read does not say which party he belongs to.

mzchief said...

To anonymous 12:31...
Let me get this straight; according to YOUR standards, the fact I praised J C Penney makes me full of myself, in your ever so humble and judgmental opinion of me. I guess the fact I have just returned from Fred's discount store in Bridgeport makes me a freakin' primadonna. People like YOU and Buckwheat need to get over ME being me and get on with dealing with YOU being you.

Incidentally, what is it with the skeezer, Buckwheat, who worships a pervert, public masturbator, like Pee-wee Herman, believing they have ANY right to criticize ANYONE? Talk about someone being full of SOMETHING.
Geezzzzzeee!

Mzchief,let's forget all about those ugly things people say about you and talk about your hot petite little body for a while.

I'll set the stage and you tell me about all about it real slow but say it with sultryness.

Ok,you're 5-6" 110 wringing WET natural burnette....Ok go I'm ready.

This morning I weighed 113. Yesterday, I ate enough to sate an ENTIRE starving Ethiopian village. Did I say it with enough "sultryness," for your liking?
*LOL*

give me a break I know for a fact that kids beg the person to pull their teeth, and so us parents. In fact they look forward to having them pulled. Does this parent not have anything better to do than to go after this person? I would just like to tell the person who pulled those teeth for all of those kids thanks! And the kids says thanks also.

I never thought of you as having what it takes for you to qualify as a public masturbator. However, based upon the bitter jealousy exhibited in your comments, there is no doubt an avatar of a petty, obnoxious, beer swilling loser like Homer Simpson is the perfect representation of you.

Congratulations.

Abortion and whether gay is born or learned are two of the most controversial things out there in public debate. And it seems to come down to opinion and research that favors one camp or another. But each has indisputable facts associated with. On abortion, every single person who is OK with abortion was themselves not aborted, and only the non-aborted people ever weigh in with an opinion. We have not heard from one single aborted person on the issue. On gay, every single "I was born gay" or "gay gene" person is the product of hundreds, probably thousands, maybe even tens of thousand of sex acts, but not one of those trysts was gay. Now that's one heck of a recessive gene...and how is it that all the recessive genes talked to each other all over the planet to seemingly align their emergence? Is there a child molester gene, too? A doggie style gene? Why not just attribute everything to being born that way? I'll shut the hell up now.

Oh come on y'all...so much of the fun in blogging is how wealthy, beautiful, brilliant, popular, intimidating, etc. you can (for some) so effortlessly be through blogging. Seriously, I was Miss America and, of course, Miss Texas (FYI-you can't be Miss America unless you win a state beauty pageant. Did I mention that I have a PhD in physics AND 19th century Russian literature? Oh, and Barry is OMG so fabulous if you know what I mean.

If believing I weigh 213 pounds makes you feel better about you being you then it REALLY sucks to be you. You need to step away from the computer and DO SOMETHING that makes you a better person so you do not have to LIE to yourself.
