Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Sad news yesterday that Phil Mickelson's wife has breast cancer. It was certainly happier times last year when he won Colonial as a drunk guy jumped into the water hazard in the background.
  • I fear the cancer.
  • I've been reading a book on the religious aspect of suffering and if it really makes any sense.
  • I haven't watched one second of American Idol. (Except for the girl in the bikini during the tryout stage), but you can't get away from hearing about the huge "upset" last night. My knee jerk reaction: AI fixed the results to generate publicity for its sagging ratings. Yep, I'm serious about that.
  • And my brother believes that any sporting playoff event that goes to a Game 7 is fixed.
  • We may both be crazy.
  • There's a home in my neighborhood that has a temporary sign in its lawn that reads, "Voting Entrance In Back." I have no idea what that means.
  • It's kind of fun to read police reports for the first time since you get to learn if the cop's version of the events matches what your client told you.
  • I jumped back into an S&P 500 Mutual Fund yesterday. Obama, baby needs new shoes!
  • Last night I dreamed/dreamt that I met my high school girlfriend for a date in Fort Worth and she surprised me by bringing her newborn baby. Then we tried to find a sitter by just walking around. Fail.
  • Shameless plug: I'm slowly getting the bugs worked out of the Wise County Free Classifieds.
  • The huge video screen at the new Cowboys' stadium will be fired up today for the media. Fox 4 showed it this morning with only a "test pattern" on it and it looks amazing.
  • I'm no longer buying a daily copy of the Dallas Morning News. Quality down. Price up. Me apathetic.
  • If I spend more that 30 minutes on the phone per month on non-business conversations, there's something wrong. I simply do not talk on the phone for fun.
  • All the celebrity web sites have Hayden Panettiere bikini pictures over last two days as she vacations on a yacht. I just couldn't link to it because I knew you guys would barbecue me.
  • Have you ever seen the fake Tiger Woods yacht?
  • A Wise County elected official sent me an email yesterday and signed it "Double Fake . . . . "

That fake Tiger yacht has one heck of a water hazard! Wonder what the penalty is for that? Probably stroke...stroke...stroke...

Is your "Wise County Free Classifieds" aka "Barry's Bargains" going to fill the void left by CraigsList dumping the erotic services ads?

AI made a mistake if that "upset" was a publicity stunt. I know several people who have said they will NOT watch the show again because this is the second time that the BEST singer was "upset" and booted from the prize. First was Daughtery, and last night, Adam Lambert. Chris is good, very good, but Adam really deserved the win. However, Chris just takes the title and the trophy. If there are not record producers salavating to sign BOTH of those shining diamonds, then there is something very wrong in the music industry. Good luck to both those very talented musicians!

Adam should have won, but not winning won't slow him down. He's amazing.

The queer photos of Adam kissing different men mysteriously showed up this past weekend on the internet killed Adam's bid. On friday, it surfaced that Adam had went public that he was an atheist. (I cant really figure out why some of his outfits he was wearing a cross/crosses. I heard /read on a couple of different deals that Idol had never had a winner that did not have a strong faith-based background.
I always looked at the girlfriend/baby situation as a positive.........sheza sure thing!

Let me get this straight: you have had clients, at some point in the past, who actually told you the same story as the one related in the Officer's Report? Amazing.

People who are more conversant with the ins and outs of "AI" than their own jobs, political and religious beliefs, our system of government etc. wear me smooth.

Glad to hear someone else has the same feelings about making phone calls. Worried cause it's you.

Here, here!!!! - on the phone calls.
HATE talking on the phone. Time suck.

If you've got a real problem you need my help with, your dog just died, your man just left, you need my carrot cake recipe, we haven't talked in months and really need to catch up, or you just found a secret stash of Jimmy Choo's on sale at DSW - by all means ring me up. Otherwise - just e-mail me. Text me. FB me. I despise sitting on the phone for idle chatter. I do not care about the weather where you are. I do not care whom you saw at the grocery store. I do not care to hear a synopsis of last night's episode of "Two and a Half Men" - no matter how intrigued I am by Charlie Sheen.

...wow - felt good to get that all out.

where did you hear adam was atheist? I have been following his stuff for a while and haven't heard that. BTW...maybe the atheist story isn't true, and therefore the cross would make much more sense.

Well I am glad that Chris won on AI.

Im just glad the american idol isn't a gay man:))))))))
I was so happy that flamer didn't win

Pictures of Adam doing "stuff" with men have been around all season. I doubt they had much to do with anything that happened this week. I can't stand the scream sing act, especially when you use it ruin a great song like "One". That kind of theatrics had to wear thin on a lot of people.

When you take a look at the top 3 on AI, this really shouldn't have been much of a surprising upset and not fixed at all. Danny and Kris have much more in common with each other than either of them do with Adam. With Danny gone, it was highly likely that the vast majority of people that voted for Danny sent their finale votes to Kris.

Thanks God I am an atheist.

I suggest the Wise County Free Classified has a spot requiring an asking price. I have a hard time just calling to find out if the initial price is right.

As if I needed another reason why I never have and never will watch AI.

On a different note, are you my husband 3:34?

As far as I remember, your big bro is not and never has been a noted sports expert.
