Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • When I was backing out of my garage this morning I heard the loudest and weirdest "beep, beep, beep" sound. I thought either someone was stalking me or my car had magically installed a rear sensor. I got out and looked around, but nothing. It kind of creeped me out.
  • If I get to the cleaners really early, I'll find a lady alone inside who keeps the door locked despite the "open" sign. She gets up and opens it when she sees me coming. I think she does it for protection.
  • The governor of Illinois is just cocky enough to make me start to like him.
  • Heard a guy on WBAP say this morning that "I don't feel like I've eaten a meal unless I'm stuffed." Disgusting.
  • For the first time in years, I don't have a New Year's Eve party to go to.
  • Actually, I got invited to one, but I think the hostess secretly hates me.
  • What a weird incident last night when three guys entered The Gas Pipe in far north Dallas and opened fire, killing one.
  • I have never understood The Gas Pipe which basically sells drug paraphernalia.
  • And the Fox 4 broadcast of the Gas Pipe shooting had a wide shot showing a "Psychic" store next door. So why didn't the people inside see the shooting coming? (I actually stole that like from Kris on Facebook.)
  • Sports Quick Hits: That was a good OSU/Oregon game last night. Charles Barkley got arrested last night for DWI. There are five bowl games today.
  • The five bowl games reminds me when I was in Las Vegas with my buddy Kevin on this very day a few years back. I chose one team to bet on and he chose their opponent. We placed our bets with the same ticket lady who remarked, "Why didn't you two just bet each other?" (And thereby eliminate the Vegas commission or "juice".)
  • The Mavericks had their biggest comeback ever last night -- eliminating a 29 point deficit. But the head coach didn't get to see it because he was ejected in the first half. I didn't see any of it by choice.
  • It's weird how at the stroke of midnight all the newly elected county officials suddenly take office.
  • I became DA at midnight in 1993 in Billy Bob's at Northside. I thought that seemed wrong at the time.
  • Wade Phillips is on The Ticket right now. He begins every answer with a very weak "well" followed by a two second pause.

I live very close to the shooting at the Gas Pipe. Heard the helicopter and walked outside and within seconds the spotlight was on me, amazing how quick it was, I used the same quickness to go back inside.

I don't think Wade Phillips is the man that should be coaching the Dallas Cowgirls.

Come to Fred's Texas Cafe tonight. Think you need reservations.

There will be plenty of weirdness at the stroke of midnight December 21,2012 but, none of it will be newly elected county officials.

Were drugs or alcohol involved?

1:10 serious drugs and alcohol are obviously involved in your life! I bet you were one of those whom was all bracing for the Y2k crap/hype also. I am A GoD fearing man too but I asure you No one but the Almighty himself knows the exact date or time...and you really Put people whom might be actually seeking "the faith" by sounding as OUT THERE as you apparently are! Let me ask you, what will you say to the LORD when he ask you "how was it your 12/12 of 2012 comments was supposed to help lead and guide others to me?" You sound as tho you might need to get out more, mabey take up playing banjo perhps? Get off the 12 of 2012 crap unless perhaps you are GOD or have an direct line which if thats the case disregard the above and accept my apologie!

All these December 21,2012 goobers are the ones that have generators in their garages and still eating all the canned crap they stored up for Y2K.

i completely agree with you, the dec 12, 2012 stuff is old and false, i looked into it and it's supposed to be some kind of ancient mayan prophecy of some sort and that their calander ends on that date for some unknown reason (their calander is completly different from ours by the way) it just another day in the year and nothing more, and when that day comes im probably gonna do what i do everyday... go to work and do absolutely nothing for 12 hours, go home, go to sleep, and wake up dec 13, 2012 and do it all over again.
(it's time for you to stop playing dungeons and dragons and come out of your parents basement to enjoy the world a little bit.)

Gala is a former "Red's" bartender who couldn't get her job back. No place in Bridgeport is worth the trip.

1993 was a great year, Pat left the building and the new history began. Like Archie sings,"those we're the days".

1:47 - just chill. The guy's either trying to mess with everyone or he's serious. Either way, the best thing is to just ignore the guy. It's so borrrrrring.

99% of the gals hanging out in those places are missing teeth worn rather ruff looking women that could take on most of the men in a fist fight and hold their own!

I'm sorry, where are the "High brow" watering holes in Wise County?

I still miss Rafters, Pappa Joe's, The Oasis and the Alvord Truckstop. Now THOSE were some watering holes!

(Great fajitas at the Truckstop after the bar closed!)
