Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • News + pop culture + a krillion TV channels + internet = A heck of a lot to keep up with in this world.
  • I have no trouble with the concept of talking to one's enemies. I sometimes feel like I do it more than I realize.
  • Charles Grodin was on Sean Hannity's show last night hawking some book. The man acted a little crazy.
  • I talked to someone yesterday who told me they once owned a brick made by "actual slaves" from Civil War days.
  • The hatred of Obama astounds me.
  • This Miss California/Perez Hilton broohaha might be the best thing that ever happened to her. If I'm that girl, I'd milk this controversy for as much as I possibly could.
  • And, by the way, she is smoking hot.
  • Saw a an elderly woman on College Street in Decatur this morning around 7:00 a.m. taking out her trash and smoking a cigarette.
  • I'm having a hard time paying $1.00 for the weekday edition of the Star-Telegram or Morning News. I'm not sure it's worth it.
  • Whatever happened to "The Christian Coalition?"
  • Does the question mark properly go inside the quotes in the above sentence?
  • Crazy Ranger note from last night: The pitcher that gave up the game winning hit in Toronto late last night was not even part of the team until noon yesterday. And at that time he was in sitting in Florida. He didn't get to Toronto until 9:45 p.m. and didn't get to the game until the 10th inning. (Second paragraph.)
  • Traffic nightmare this weekend: "State officials are taking the unusual step of closing all lanes of Interstate 35E in downtown Dallas for brief periods Saturday. The rolling closures will allow crews to put bridge beams in place [above the highway]. The closures will last up to 10 minutes at a time, and will take place between 6:30 a.m. and 1 p.m." Up to 10 minutes? Riiiiiiight.
  • I still think it's depressing that crawling in my bed to go to sleep is often the best time of my day.
  • As a test, I emptied my Spam email folder exactly one month ago. I checked it a second ago and there are 34,345 emails resting there. What are the chances of one having "Viagra" in the subject line?
  • I get this weird vibe from the Far Right Wing are beginning to secretly hope for another terrorist attack so they can blame Obama "for weakening our defenses."
  • It's 137 days until the start of Big 12 football season.
  • The radio in my shower (yep I have one) requires six Class C batteries. It's the only thing I've ever owned that has required Class C batteries.
  • There's nothing crazier than CPS court day at the courthouse. And there's always some mom in the hallway explaining how CPS is "out to get her" (which might be right.)
  • Up at the courthouse this morning for a second DWI trial in three days.
