Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • There was a special on the History Channel last night about Angels and Demons. Now I want to go to Rome. Not Rhome. Rome.
  • And the movie looks about as bad as the Da Vinci Code. It's just impossible to transfer those books into movies because it requires the characters to walk around and give history lessons every step of the way. It's interesting, but not natural.
  • Welcome to Dallas where we run over you and then go through your pockets.
  • Crazy Texas Mom. I'm not sure how I found that blog but she is brutally honest. She'll make you laugh. She'll make you cry. She could be a professional writer.
  • I feel weird walking outside in a robe.
  • I can't tell you how much I despise Mark Cuban. Classless.
  • I think, in the end, Lebron James will be considered to be better than Michael Jordan.
  • Wanda Sykes was funny at the White House Correspondent's Dinner this weekend. (Either you already now about it or you could couldn't care less.)
  • Channel 5 had a story on LeaseTrader.com which allows you to "have someone else assume your car lease." First, I wonder if that's a paid commercial disguised as a news story. Second, if I'm the company leasing you the car, I'm not letting you shift the responsibility of paying to some third party.
  • I'm insane now: The Simpsons' theme song done a capella.
  • 44 cents for a stamp? And how can I feel that it is both ripoff and a bargain at the same time?
  • Somebody plowed into a guardrail on 287 south of Decatur over the weekend. Amazingly, the always confusing "Guardrail Damage Ahead" signs are already out.
  • Star Trek's opening weekend was a whopping $72.5 million. I like the original Star Trek even though I detest all science fiction (including any subsequent Star Trek tv series.)
  • Remember when Channel 11 was an independent channel?
  • Some guy had his tenant's rent check bounce and then complained to everyone except the United Nations that our local DA won't prosecute. Note to guy: Don't use a prosecutor as your own private collection agency.

The quips about John Boenner (by Obama) and Rush (by sykes) were on target, but still uncomfortable........wish they hadn't been given.......why give your opponent an opening.

this Olsen guy sounds like a jack ass for building a house he couldnt afford then renting it to someone who couldnt afford it he got what he deserved, This is a civil matter and not criminal so the only court that could help him is the JP Court.

The random pic is great! I see that she has a heart on also!

I had the pleasure of partying with Wanda Sykes in January at a club in Dallas. She is just as funny in person!

Real men don't even own a robe. So, yup that would be weird.

I thought it was against the law to give someone a bad check.

Walked outside naked if the robe bothers you.

If you had read the story (about the bad check) you would know that in order for the DA to bring charges, there would have to be evidence that the renter INTENDED to not honor the check. They had shown good faith previously by paying on time with checks that were honored. The owner can't prove that the renters intentionally gave him a bad check.
That sucks, yeah, but that's why the DA isn't pursuing it as a criminal case.

"Remember when Channel 11 was an independent channel?"
And the numbers standing next to each other with one (literally) asking the other "Hey, bud, watcha lookin' at?"

"I feel weird walking outside in a robe."
Because the neighbors break out with "Here come da judge! Here come da judge!"?

If you were a leasing company, you would be the third parties biggest cheerleader right now......Cause, party number one can't make the payments.

Leasing is just another way for folks to get something they can not afford. And lease trading is just a new way for them to get out from under their obligations.

#1.. Wanda Sykes is great!

#2.. I couldn't even wat the Da Vinci Code because it was so bad.. the book was great though!

You can get .22 shells at any Walmart. They don't have the 550 rd bricks, but they have boxes of 100. How many critters are you planning to kill?

I agree about the third-party leasing. They don't care who forks over the money, so long as they get paid

Why is it that conservatives are not demanding an apology from Dyke Sykes but liberal weeenies are demanding an apology from David Feherty?

Candance said...

OMG, thank you so much for the link to my blog and the really nice things you said about me!! You are awesome!!! Thank you, thank you!!! You totally made my day!

9:51, If you give someone a check for goods or services received and unless you are a F**ging moron, then you know at the time you write the check that you do not have the funds to cover it and you make no effort to redeem it, then that is stealing and the last time that I checked, stealing was a crime. So why do our paid officials not take care of it? It is not like that they are too busy prosecuting cases since they plea-bargain most of them away.

9:51 here
go read the article and get off my case. I'm not defending the check-writers or the DA

RPM said...

Am I the only one that thinks Wanda Sykes is only slightly less annoying than Joan Rivers?

Anyone remember Icky Twerp and Slam Bang Theater?

Anonymous said...

Prosecutors went after bad check writers in the past. It's Lowery's choice to prosecute. The assistant DA is wrong, in my opinion. It should be the DA's job. I guess the banks are making too much money on bad checks or whatever. Lowery is simply being lazy. Maybe small business owners and landlords can make this an issue in the next election.

The Donald said...

Mike, having watched "Celebrity Apprentice" for several episodes, I think that it's Sykes who's the more annoying, though Joan does get on my nerves.

Yeah, Icky Twerp and SBT were after-school staples at my house, along with "Leave it to Beaver" and "Speed Racer".

That was a long time ago...

I liked the DaVinci Code even after listening to the audio book first. I think it was the french accents; I love french accents. And who doesn't love an albino monk?...Come On!
