Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Have we seen this girl before? I can't remember.
  • It's surprising the protests are still going on in Iran. I thought they would have been squashed by now.
  • Fox News is all anti-Obama all the time. And Steve Doocey on the horrible Fox and Friends this morning says, "Remember here at Fox we still do journalism - unlike the other guys."
  • The pilot of a Continental flight into Newark (not ours, the one in NJ) died mid-flight yesterday but it landed safely by the co-pilots. It was the lead story on World News Tonight but hardly got mentioned in the local newscasts.
  • And I saw one passenger interviewed who somehow managed to work in, "I was in first class." Thank you, sir. I wanted to know that.
  • I don't think there's a single sit-com I've followed on TV since Seinfeld.
  • On Sunday, I normally choose one thing to eat for dinner all week long. This week it was grilled chicken. The week before it was sandwiches. Why? 80% of my food would go to waste if I didn't continue to eat it every night.
  • North Korea threatening to launch a missile towards Hawaii on the 4th of July? They couldn't launch a missile that would reach across town.
  • Uh oh: Kaufman County DA gets arrested for DWI. Shocker: He was convicted of DWI in the 1990s. How'd he get elected in the first place?
  • And you know it's a bad sign when the county web site misspells his name. (It's "Harrison").
  • Coaches are like politicians except they have a scoreboard.
  • I think we are all turning on Tony Romo. (And I was just watching an episode of last year's Hard Knocks where he said something to the effect of, "We could fast forward to the playoffs, or even further, but I want to enjoy the journey of the season." As if the playoffs were a foregone conclusion.)
  • The 15 Most Disturbing Movies Ever Made. And I've got a buddy at the courthouse who will be putting every one he hasn't seen on his Netflix queue today. (Link requires some discretion.) And #9 is disturbing and great.
  • I had the craziest dream that I was trying to sneak out of a developed cove on an unknown lake on my old boat. As I was packing, an acquaintance whirled me around and stuck a gun in my chest. He then told me he was just kidding. I then woke up.
  • Maybe I should keep away from disturbing movies.
  • I get this weird pleasure in watching traffic jams in Dallas on TV in the morning.

What about The Office? You have to start following The Office.

Which network gets to lick the boots of Obammy for a full hour to shove his National Socialized health care down our throats with no dissenting opinions? We report, you obey.

If you had half a brain to maintain this country and at least preserve the building blocks of capitalism, you might be somewhat anti-Obama as opposed to supporting the misguided sychophants.

yup.. we've seen this girl BG

Yep...girlie girl repeat...but that's ok.

Did anyone watch the Channel 8 10 o'clock news Wednesday night?

If you did, you would have seen this graffic "HOA Suprise" being displayed while Gloria went on about the folks getting their vehicles towed off of their property for not being properly parked.

Anyone see a problem with that graphic?

I would die if I was on a flight into our Newark.

Fox = "all anti-Obama, all the time?" All the time? Really? Counselor, would you let a testifying witness get away with such a hyperbolic statement? Care to revise it for the sake of accuracy?

After Obama's comment about it, and the oft-repeated Liberal "conventional wisdom," I wish someone would do a credible study to see how much of a typical Fox News 24-hour news day could actually be considered "anti-Obama." That definition might need some work, too. If an important news story that happens to be damaging to Obama is not covered on the other networks, but covered on Fox, is that "anti-Obama" on their part, or "pro-Obama" on the part of the others?

Surprisingly [and thankfully, after reading the descriptions] I've never seen any of the 15 movies.

I followed another link on the site to the 10 Most Disturbing Books... and just as I suspected Bret Easton Ellis' American Psycho was among them. I read it last year and it truly deserves a place on that list. The most disturbing thing about the book is that the author's mind actually came up with that level of explicit violence.

And I got a laugh out of another book on the list: We Need to Talk About Kevin.

This godess may be a repeat, but she remains in my random thoughts until her next appearance. So quit trying to bait me with the Obama drivel and give me more eye candy!

When they are trying to make the President look bad all the time, it is Anti-Obama. It's fine though, the majority of right wingers are getting older and the general trend of the country is becoming more liberal, which is good because liberals do what is best for the country instead of just themselves.

BG,

What about Breaking Bad? They talk about it on the Ticket all the time. Season One is just 7 episodes and you could get it from Netflix now, and Season Two just finished. I bet you could rent Season Two pretty soon. Season Three starts next March. IT is gooooooood! It comes on AMC.

As a single woman, i do the same thing as far as eating goes. Grill up a package of chicken and eat it all week.

By Friday I am ready for a big greasy cheeseburger and some skin on french fries. Yum yum!

Yup, I'm single, too. And I cook something on Sunday and eat it all week. Love the single life, would't go back to the hellish married one for a million bucks! Do what I want when I want, and you can bet it beats having a husband!

If you recall it was the Kaufman County DA who killed himself over the Dateline investigation, wheels off.

What? It's okay to be Anti-Bush but not Anti-Obama?

I was a little disturbed just reading some of those movie descriptions. No thanks. They won't be making my Netflix queue, so I don't think your buddy will have to worry about the "Very Long Wait" syndrome. At least not from me.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Tony benched at some point this season. I'm predicting 6-10 with Wade being fired before the end of the year.

Sitcoms I follow: Office, 30 Rock, How I Met Your Mother, Rules of Engagement (this one I think may have been cancelled and brought back twice?--not sure about this)

I've never sat in first class.

Fox News is a joke to me. When I watch them, I think--isn't it obvious to everyone what their agenda is? I don't know which is worse...(1) that their audience is oblivious to their blatant Republican affiliation or that they know and still think of it as "good journalism"?

And you could post her every day as far as I'm concerned. I didn't think proportions like hers were possible outside of a Barbie doll.

Yes, we have seen the girl with the itty, bitty waist in the itty, bitty pink bikini

Of course protests are still going on in Iran, most of those people do not have cable, none of them have Wal-mart and the government has blocked access to FaceBook, Twitter and Blogger.

FoxNews just appears anti-Obama because they present the schemes of Obama & Czars Inc. without sugar coating. Do not blame FoxNews for the public not liking the absolute CRAP BO is trying to force on the public.

Perhaps the passenger mentioned being in first-class so people would realize they had a bird's eye view of the action in the cockpit.

I will e-mail you recipes so you have several options of how to change the grilled chicken so it is not the same thing every night.

You may want to pay a wee bit closer attention to the missile launches from N.K. because you are wrong about the distance they can achieve with their long range intercontinental ballistic missiles.

I have not seen a single movie on the list which could explain why I do not have weird dreams like friends joking around with guns.

You must have been absolutely giddy watching the wreak at I-35 and Loop 12 that had traffic backed up for miles and miles and miles.

Everyone, have a great day.....and a special "smug grin" for you...

Thank you for the text, Roxx.

915 - Two points: First, a quote often attributed to Winston Churchill says something like, "If you're not a Liberal as a young man, you have no heart. If you're not a Conservative as an older man, you have no brain." And the recent trend in political self-identification, as discussed a few days ago, seems to be strongly Conservative.

Next, the subject of media coverage essentially boils down to an "are so, am not" argument. Important news, such as the administration's bad guess (per Joe Biden) on unemployment, or the stimulus plan's having the opposite effect of what was intended -- is coverage of that news "anti-Obama?" Is lack of coverage "pro-Obama?" If we examine the coverage on the Bush administration of the last eight years on NBC, CBS & ABC, how would that compare to Fox's coverage of Obama?

Man, how did Eraserhead make the list? Disturbing, yeah, but I've seen worse even though it's the only one on the list I've seen.

Yes, we've seen that girl before, but she is worth seeing again. If you don't remember her, I'd guess hetero may not be appropriate before your sexuality prefix description.

The DA with DWI? Marion Barry was a re-elected cocaine addict. Think maybe the founding fathers had a clue when you had to be a property owner to actually vote for the election of public officials?

Anyone here watch Jon & Kate Plus 8 and wondering what the "big announcement" will be on Monday night?

I forgot to mention earlier, I saw Last House on the Left as part of a double feature with Don't Look in the Basement (which has a scene that was duplicated in The Dark Knight) when I was sixteen. LHotL is the only movie I've ever seen that literally made me ill. I haven't seen any of the rest of them, nor do I intend to. (A Bronson movie, Ten to Midnight, makes my list of disturbing movies, with one scene reminiscent of the Speck murders.)

You may call me Your Majesty. In fact, I insist. said...

I tend to do the same thing regarding eating the same thing all week. Mzchief, send me those recipes too?

You need to watch Real Housewives!!!

Oh, and that gal in the bikini looks like she has a few ribs removed. Kinda ruins her beauty

Grill the chicken on Sunday; other uses throughout the week: shish-kabobs, stir fry (with frozen veggies and rice), chicken caesar salad, fajitas, chicken quesadillas, chicken tortilla soup, not to mention chicken salad if you like it.

I didn't understand all the hoopla about that pilot dying on the plane. I mean that's weird and all, but the reports seemed to focus on whether the co-pilots were capable of landing the plane safely and seemed surprised that they landed without incident. Do they think the co-pilots are some dim-wits that don't know what their doing?
