Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Nothing makes you value good health like being sick.
  • I don't know when I started it, but I've got this crazy belief that apple juice will cure me. So no matter how bad I feel when I get sick, I crawl to the grocery store to buy a ton of it.
  • I feel guilty staying home even when I'm sick.
  • The feeling of "I've got to lie down" when you're trying to eat anything is not-a-good.
  • The Iranians launch another test missile. Cocky little son-of-a-guns.
  • I had the craziest dreams last night. They included flying over a mountain lake with only a boat sail, stumbling on the equivalent of Sodom and Gomorrah in the basement of the Tarrant County Convention Center (basement?), and struggling for 30 minutes trying to type of a broken keyboard.
  • Those pictures of people floating up to their necks in the Philippines' flooding are pretty shocking.
  • The Cowboys look like an 8-8 team. And Tony Romo looks beaten down.
  • If you like neck tattoos on girls (and who doesn't?), Denton Police have one for you.
  • Did a Decatur man die over the weekend while working on a A/C unit?
  • Crazy metroplex story yesterday: A sport utility vehicle slammed into the side of a day care van loaded with 20 children. The van had a capacity of 15, the driver was 20 years old and without a driver's license, and the SUV driver didn't have a license either.
  • The new ESPNDallas.com (which debuted yesterday) has stolen at least three writers from the Dallas Morning News. They are dropping like flies over there. Edit: Just saw they fired back by re-hiring baseball guru Evan Grant.
  • Did the 14 year old girl in Tarrant County die of swine flu at Cook's or was it pneumonia? They are still deciding. But it was sad to see the dad agonize over her death showing frustration at not being able to help. "That's my job."
  • And her symptoms seemed just like the run on the mill flu. Scary.
  • Ticket Talk this morning: The new Cowboys Stadium is built east to west -- isn't that going to cause an issue with player vision with the setting sun on late afternoon games?
  • I don't feel too confident in seeing news footage of school maintenance workers scrubbing down desks and counters with one rag.
  • Captain "Sully" hasn't flown since landing the plane in the Hudson?
  • I kind of cock an eyebrow at anyone who refers to Muslims as "those Muslims."

Hey Barry, don't feel guilty about staying home when you are sick.

Look how many germs stay home with you and away from the rest of us.

Cheer up. Glad you are back. Missed ya!

Do you mean he hasn't piloted a plane? My guess is a much traveling he's done that he has flown.

You mean you finally "get it?" Get why people take the swine flu SERIOUSLY? I remember just a few months ago you were "poo pooing" it.

I'm glad you're back. Be well.

You are right...it should be "them Muslims."

Anonymous said...

"Those Muslims" do not treat women like we do in the US. Perhaps that is the problelm?

Why wait until you're sick? An apple juice a day keeps the sawbones away

Is it okay to refer to those cocky little son-of-a-guns as "those" Iranians...while cocking an eyebrow?

Neck tattoos? That's nuthin'. The other day I saw some gal who had what looked like a sailor's tat on her chest! It was a rather elaborate anchor and I think it said "Granddad" in the middle of it.
BTW - if you're that gal, call me. After seeing that magnificent spectacle, I was sportin' a partial all the way to the truck.

How does a daycare manage to hire a person to shuttle kids around when that person doesn't have a valid DL? Plus, loads up a van with more kids than there are seats for? Stupid! Yank their license

So the Cowboys are gonna have issues with the sun coming in thru the endzone glass during late afternoon games? No problem - Jerry has enough money left over that he can afford a gigantic roll of aluminum foil to cover the windows.

Stay classy, Cowboys
Keep plucking that chicken!

8:42 HaHaHa did they both lose their loads together? also, this sounds like Jarhead.

If you like THOSE MUSLIMS so damn much why don't you wrap a baby diaper (used) around your head and go suck a goats teat in some mud hut in Iran.

The Musers just mentioned that Jerry should tint the endzone windows. After a comment Gordo made earlier this AM, and judging by what I saw last night, I would also suggest that they place "Los Vaqueros" decals in large Roman script lettering.

8:42 - will you share that disgusting comment with your mother?

Something wrong with the word "those"?

Here we go again with this damn SWINE flu hysteria. It must be a slow news week again. The SWINE flu is going to kill far far less people than the normal flu. Can we go ahead and stop this now? And no, my kids will NOT be getting the SWINE flu "vaccine". One of my boys schools has had 5 "confirmed" cases already. My boys haven't missed one day. Am I the only one who couldn't care less about the SWINE flu.

Sorry farmers, I refuse to call the PC name. Does that make me un-American?

Per the Decatur man dying he was giving an estimate or something to do with AC and just dropped they said he was from Alvord. I am sure pretty traumatic for the homeowners. I knew him well and he had not been sick and had no medical problems that I know of. He was oneofthefirst to come offer anything when my husband died 2 months ago.

What difference does it make where the sun rises or sets, it's enclosed.

My daughter and seven other kids in her first grade class caught the swine flu. It was confirmed by testing one of the children who was hospitalized with a fever of 104.8°. All eight kids were back in school within a week. I had flu-like symptoms for one day with a lingering cough for three more days.

Most of the fatalities I have read about mention possible complications when combined with pneumonia.

Swine flu = inconvenience

Swine flu + pneumonia = danger

My grandmother died at a young age in 1919 from the flu and pneumonia. The flu weakened her and pneumonia killed her. Her death certificate says that death occured 72 hours after the first symptoms.

Don't cock your eyebrow, it might go off & put your eye out.

You are correct, 9:50. Those who have died had underlying medical issues or were complicated by pneumonia. Last year alone, 38,000 died of the plain old seasonal flu in the US, but you didn't hear about that, did you? The media LOVES to hype hysteria.

That poor family. I pray they can heal from this loss.

Correct, it is enclosed. But maybe you weren't paying attention to all the folks who have said that the endzone areas are glass-covered. The sun will come in thru the glass at some point during afternoon games, possibly making it difficult for receivers to catch passes.
I'm assigning homework - go study the blueprint. Better yet, just look at any of the hundreds of photos that have been taken of the place

I grew up in Grand Prairie and when I saw what day care the unlicensed (I don't even know if I spelled that right)driver of the wrecked van was from I was all like, "Yep. Sounds about right." I used to hear all kinds of bad stuff about that place.
