Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • We've got a one vehicle roll over this morning on 287 at CR 2264 just north of Decatur.
  • Any proposal to ban all cell phone calls in cars is unenforceable. If you are using hands free, who could tell if you were talking to someone or singing?
  • The story of the UTD student getting her throat slashed by the Alvord kid is getting lots of press. I saw one story where he said he had been thinking of hurting someone for quite some time.
  • You don't hear the term "full blown AIDS" as much anymore.
  • When I was a kid, a popular poster was of an Ethopian guy eating a Butterfinger from a CARE package full of nothing but Butterfingers. He had a sad look on his face.
  • If The Bachelor were on HBO with less censorship, I'd watch it.
  • The 7-11 sandwich section looks pretty good these days.
  • Amanda Bynes is cute, but I have no idea why she looks so familiar.
  • Oil falls below $37 a barrel and prices at the pump go up?
  • I wonder what the average room rate will be at the new Omni Hotel in downtown Fort Worth?
  • If you look at the nutritional guides for any fast food restaurant, there is nothing on there you can eat. Except at Subway. (Bonus for iPhone users: A fast food fat gram web site.)
  • I think Mountain Ceder is my nemeses.
  • Kate Winslet, who jazzes me, acted really goofy at the Golden Globe awards.
  • I'd like to spend some time in the Florida Keys.
  • There's an El Paseo on Jacksboro Highway and one in Keller/Southlake. They couldn't be more different -- the one on Jacksboro highway is a dive and the one in Keller is pretty nice.
  • I ate at the Jacksboro Highway location on Friday night and left a ton of food in a "to go" box on the table. Ugh.
  • I like my waiter in a Mexican food restaurant to be Hispanic.
  • It's always a crazy moment when inmates are brought into the district court for docket -- there's the odd sound of the chains from ankle cuffs hitting the wood floor. I've seen it a hundred times but it's kind of fun to watch those in the gallery that have never seen it before. It's quite shocking.

I don't know whether I would call the one on on Jacksboro Highway a "dive." It is a nice building, a lot of it is just the surroundings.

There is also the one in Azle. It is nice, although it does not equal the one in Keller.

There's also an El Paseo in Azle. I think the Jacksboro Hwy one is the original. That's some good eatin'.

Some of the data on the fatburgr site is wrong. I used Chick Fil A as an example. The calories are correct, but the fat grams are not. That means the weight watchers points calculation is wrong as well.

I looked at a few items on chickfila and found that most were experiencing this problem.

I had that same poster hanging in my room when I was a teenager. Being older than you, I immediately saw the horror. I hung it right beside my silhouette of a black boy with a big afro who had a single tear running down his cheek. It was painted on velvet, and I bought it in Juarez, Mexico when I went to get my teeth fixed by the Mexican dentist. That was the year I bought the coolest pair of jeans - they were painted like an American flag, but I got those in El Paso.

As for the Florida Keys, my husband was stationed there while he was in the Navy. He was a Navy man during the day, and at night, he and his pals would wear mop-top wigs like the Beatles, all dress alike and play rock and roll songs on the beach. They even cut several records that were played on the radio down there. That was when I was in first grade up here in Gawd's Country.

Random Tuesday Morning Thought - Not so much!

Omni Hotel - I understand prices will be from $185.00 a night to $350.00 a night. Of course that's probably to get you interested. I'm sure the prices will be much higher in the next six months. Also, if a person can actually walk out of their room on what appears to be balconies, I wonder when the first person will take a leap? Leap not Leak. It gives me the Willy's just looking up at them. I'm betting they're not accessible strictly due to liability. Of course I'm not an attorney nor will I probably ever be able to afford staying there. Nice looking hotel though.

There is El Paseo in Mineral Wells Also

What about the salads at Wendys ?

Aren't they healthy

"Amanda Bynes is cute, but I have no idea why she looks so familiar."
Um, probably cuz you've seen her while trolling all those celeb sites.

"I'd like to spend some time in the Florida Keys."
I'm not sure, but you may want to stay away from Key West, unless you feel like exploring alt lifestyles.

"I like my waiter in a Mexican food restaurant to be Hispanic."
Or a hot chick! Even better - a hot Hispanic chick! Chica boom!

"I think Mountain Ceder is my nemeses."
It's "cedar", and "nemesis"
Nemeses is plural. You're welcome

"If The Bachelor were on HBO with less censorship, I'd watch it."
Wouldn't that be true of a whole lotta shows on broadcast TV?
There already is a program like that - it's called Brett Michaels' Rock of Love Bus (or whatever the H-E-double-hockey-sticks that thing is called). Now if THAT show was on HBO - whoa, baby! Bullet train wreck!

Ahhhh, Barry, you made me smile this morning thinking about the Florida Keys. Spent a lot of time there in my teen years (parents had a house on Duck Key). I have to absolutely recommend you go to the Duck Key Resort and have a Pina Colada...also stop by the Dolphin Research Center in Marathon (you can have a very cool dolphin encounter). Have to go to Key West at least once to observe insanity at its best. Watch the sunset at Mallory Square. You like Jimmy Buffett? Ahhhhh, good times!

I've been to Key West. Ernest Hemingway's house was interesting.........but stay away from all the drag queens! SERIOUSLY!

Mountain Cedar is pretty rough also.

"is a dive"... Is that some 70's lingo, BG? I have no idea if that means something good, or bad!

Why are there so many Mexican food restaurants. I don't want to be a racist, but I would prefer eating at an establishment named Davie Crocket's. Most of the people I see coming out of Mexican food places are short and fat. The junk does not pass through the human digestive tract without creating a lot of unpleasant odor.

Where is the mountain that grows Mountain Ceder ? And if I find it can we like burn it and kill it?

I do not ever remembering it being this bad in the past.

Sure the girl in the photo does not measure up to the slutty standards Barry has for most of his sleazy chick pics and is a wee bit chubby for that particular outfit but there is NOTHING wrong with a young girl wearing a modest bikini with the bottom half covered by a pair of shorts while at or enroute to and from a swimming pool. Note, hanging horizontally on the wall behind the young girl are the fiberglass poles for the skimmer basket and wall brush used to clean the swimming pool.

Some of you are just nasty when it comes to larger people. Hope all your family & friends are just 100lbs or smaller.

Hell take Chelsea Clinton for example sitting there this morning watching her Mom...Damn it who would have thought that such an Ugly duckling would look that nice later on! She Aint HOTT but she turned out better than anyone in the states would have belived! Know what I'm sayin?

What are the odds any stores location regardless of what it sells being tonier in Keller than somewhere along Jacksboro Highway?

Anonymous said...

2:48 you are right there The entire 199 hyw is a trash basket till you get thru the poolville cut off then it opens up into some really open country thats worthy of pasing thru! I have often wondered why they dont make a serious effort in cleaning up their HWY frontage from F.T.Worth to Poolville?

Probably need to get that Ethiopian guy some weed, then those Butterfingers will taste pretty damn good.

Mr./Ms./ 9:23, That odor thing is how God Almighty made us. In His image! I suppose that if God eats at El Paseo, He will cause odor also, beings we do, and we were made in His image. I wish God would give a sign about which El Paseo He prefers: Mineral Wells, Fort Worth, Keller, or Azle. surely to God, He does not eat at Armondo's. And I am pretty sure that God likes Mexican Food, Tex-Mex, and BBQ, cause why else would He stay in Texas when not in Heaven?

Anonymous said...

Oh, 9:23, when God needs to get rid of that Mexican Food odor and all that other stuff related to Jalapenos and salsa eating, all He has to do is cross the Red. Then He comes back to Texas. This would explain why Oklahoma is really important to the God plan of things.

I heard the Omni Hotel was going to run a special during the weekends in Feb. $99.00 per night, regular rates are $199.

If that girl is only 16 and you post pictures of her with lust in your heart, well, you better be careful. We had a president (sort of) once named Jimmy Carter. He too had lust in his heart. It seems like he was a white, but like all white, version of Barak Obama. I remember a lot of hope and change and what not going on anyway. So, back to the point at hand. No, not yet. It might be relevant that his initials were the same as jesus christ, and BHO thinks he really is jesus. But, back to the lust thing. See, lust is a little expensive because under JC the prez, we had double digit inflation and unemployment, and some mullahs too. But we'll get to them later. Now BHO is promising years of trillion dollar deficits. I'm thinking that lust is lurking there somewhere. Anybody else think there will be some sick-ducking incident in the half-white house in the next 4 years? Call me prescient (even though it's not my name) but I'm betting on BJ's being a Dem tradition, and since black women don't go there, oh you can figure it out from there.

Well the lust in the heart JC was also a fan of the mullahs, dumping on the Shah so the mullahs could take a pop at it and it got us what? It got us modern day Iran. And aside from wanting to build a A-bomb to fork us up with, these mullahs also supply shovels to Hamas, and if you don't already know something about this, Let me tell you. Those hamasniks intend to tunnel onder the entire state of Israel. I heard they had already started but are having some trouble with the Honduran diggers union and various rogue goat farmers.

Be afraid. Be very afraid when lust takes hold, lest you find yourself on your knees in front of Hugo Chavez

If God does eat he does not eat pork or anything cooked in it. Neither would his Son. So, Mexican food in not included in their diet.

I would just like to say "thank you" for having me laugh my ass off at your comments. I literally had tears in my eyes and almost fell out of my chair. I don't know what anyone of you do for a living but you may want to think about comedy. What a way to start off the day!
