Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I live a life of distraction
  • I kind of tear up every time I see the "In Memoriam" segment on "This Week With George Stephanopoulos."
  • I like John Legend's "Save Room For My Love."
  • Whatever happened to Annie Potts?
  • Everyone is talking about Shaq's intro at the All Star game this weekend. Kind of Reminds me of Vanilla Sky.
  • Speaking of Peter Gabriel (who had a song in Vanilla Sky), I had no idea what he looked like. The man is getting old.
  • I had The Perfect Storm on yesterday and had forgotten that one of the characters was named "Sully."
  • I went to the gun show yesterday in Fort Worth but it deserves its own post later.
  • I do not understand NASCAR.
  • Friday The 13th won the box office race this weekend with $42 million. Sheesh.
  • I saw The Wrestler on Friday. My companion hated it while I was fairly fascinated. Something about an over-the-hill guy clinging to his past really grabbed my attention. (Go figure.) And Marisa Tomei was smokin' hot.
  • A Wise County girl had back to back dates this weekend. (Although she isn't familiar with the paragraph.)

I watch two NASCAR races a year, Daytona and the night race at Bristol...given that Daytona is NASCAR's "Super Bowl" how ridiculous is it for the race to end with 48 laps left to run. Kenseth didn't win anything, he was the last guy sitting in a game of musical chairs.

"My companion?" I thought only homos used that term. How about friend, date, etc. Companion???

Jarhead said...

You went to a gun show but don't understand NASCAR?

You, sir are an embarassment to Wise County. Mut be all that edumacation you done got.

And when you say you and your "companion" went to the movies, it comes off as slightly gay. You might as well say "man lover" or "life partner."

I think you need to expand on your "life of distraction" comment.

I'm not so sure that his companion wasn't Anobitor. My investigative mind is starting to link those two, as friends, of course.

Companion? C-O-M-P-A-N-I-O-N, are you kidding?

That is the most homorific thing I've heard all day.

Shaq's intro was fascinating to watch last night. Although Mr. Accomplice wasn't as impressed.

Nascar = Left Turns

Nascar SUX...Merry go round B.S Put a NASCAR driver in the passenger seat with me They will wet themselves... Ralley Car racing or twisty winding roads better still!

The DAKAR race where they race everything from mopeds to SEMI trucks across the desert ! Yep thats Racing! Or G.P races where those Crotch rocket bikes are doing 210 mph and get this if it starts raining they throw on wet tires and go for it 200 mph in a down pour leaning over in each corner as much as 53 degree those Nascar drivers stop a race when you get 3 drops of water on the track! What a bunch of "pansies"! NASCAR SUX

RPM said...

Ah, yes... the "Turn Left" crowd. Yes, you don't understand NASCAR because you've never raced. You're also the crowd that says drivers aren't athletes. I'd be willing to bet 50 year old Mark Martin is in better physical condition than 98% of the WC.

Annie Potts suffers from severe arthritis after a serious car wreck.

Now, that's funny right there, I don't care who you are!

NASCAR: Why anyone would pay a hundred dollars to watch 30 redneck jerkwads drive 200 miles per hour in a circle for 500 miles is beyond me.

Dude, you are the gayest non homo I've ever met.

The secret to winning at NASCAR has finally been revealed: drive faster than everyone else- then turn left!

Back to back dates?

Sounds like my ex wife

and NASCAR doesn't understand you, B.G.

ANYONE WHO CANNOT SEE THE GLORY IN NASCAR SHOULD EXIT THE BUILDING.

NOW.

I WEEP FOR THE SPECIES. And for my Best Friend, Ricky Bobby, and his continued estrangement from his Daddy.

PS - Companion? Companion?! Sounds like something French.

Jarhead said...

What? All this NASCAR jabber and no Dick Trickle jokes?

That girl in the picture makes my... well, you can guess the rest.

That's the best improvisational joke I can do.

I'll give you the benefit of the doubt and say your "companion" was a female that you don't want to be quizzed about. What has me worried is that your eyes start leaking when you watch an "In Memoriam" segment. Did you know any of these people personally?

After "The Wrestler" - did you and your companion re-enact that bathroom scene with Mickey Rourke and the young blonde chick?

What idiot doesn't know that it's 43 cars that line up, not 30! You guys do need a "Dummies for NASCAR" book. Oh, and there is more to NASCAR than just left turns. I.E Watkins Glen. More 411 for those who need the book! Thanks for linking me yet again Mr. Liberally Lean... what's up with that?

If anyone here has ever driven at 180+ mph in a controlled environment.

You would never question what a addictive sport NASCAR is.

I encourage any of the "Nay Sayers" to come on out and take a few laps with Team Texas. And please let me know ... What Ya Think !

Only RPM and Unattainable must know what I am talking about and experienced that kind of natural high ;)

I once did 130 mph in a Camaro on hwy 287 between Rhome and Decatur back in 1975, and lived to tell about it.

Jughead, sometimes your comments are really funny. Eat Turd and Smile, hardly ever.

Anonymous said...

I am with Collection Site on that. These drivers are just as much an athlete as the Dallas Cowboys or whoever your favorite sports team is.

Ignorance is bliss isn't it?

Not everyone who goes to NASCAR is redneck! Learn a little people!

Damn! I'm not going to kiss you bloggers ass who want to agree about NASCAR. And as for the "companion" ... that's questionable.

Maybe he was trying to be a GENTLEMEN? Even tho most call it a gay thing....sorry Mr. Dairy Queen.
