Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Elizabeth Smart's father has always struck me as odd. (She testified yesterday regarding her abduction years ago.) And I'm still not sure she's not in a state of zombie shock. (My own trademarked medical term.)
  • Maybe I'm getting old, but I watched more of the National Parks special last night on PBS. Great stuff.
  • The Fort Worth Weekly has its 2009 "Best Of" edition out this week. But I don't know where to find a hard copy of it anymore.
  • I love any "Best Of" edition.
  • Had an impromptu picture taken last week. The person holding the camera told me to "suck in your gut."
  • The Olympic location for 2016 will be announced today (Obama is overseas working his magic on behalf of Chicago.) I think it's cool when the head of the Olympic committee makes his announcement and the screen is divided with a camera on the crowds in each of the finalist cities. (If that makes sense.)
  • I've said it before: Those Bill Curtis commercials for AT&T Internet services are weirdly uncomfortable.
  • Fox 4's Dan Godwin is really beginning to get on my nerves.
  • Michael Jackson's autopsy revealed he was 5'9".
  • Holdout Michael Crabtree has now proven that he's the dumbest man of America. I don't ever remember a drafted NFL player not signing and then going back into the following year's draft. Who would touch him next year?
  • I ran across four goth kids while jogging yesterday. One was an angry female teenager with jet black hair, black eye shadow, and a I-Hate-The-World attitude.
  • This week I met what might be the hottest 40 something in the history of ever.
  • MzChief's comparison of the FBI's stopping of the teenager from "blowing up" a building in Dallas to cops stopping a guy from killing me didn't make sense. (It's in the comments under yesterday's Random Thoughts.) That hypothetical arrestee could actually do what he planned. The Dallas teenager could not.
  • Fell asleep last night to Sarah McLaughlin singing live on Austin City Limits. Nice.
  • Just released: Unemployment is now at 9.8%. That's up from last month. This Recession isn't over yet.

Obviously, the girls in the photos are all going fishing. They have their lures and tackle.

To Barry...
Based on your objection, my comparison made perfect sense. The 19-year old in Dallas DID carry out his attempt to, kill countless people and cause chaos, and detonate what he thought was a bomb in the van he drove to an underground garage of a Dallas building filled with people.

There never WAS a recession in Wise County according to the Wise Appraisal District. Unfortunately, Wise County lives in a bubble protected from the rest of the REAL world.

The chick in white is smokin hot. 2nd hottest on here ever next to Tebow's girl in the brown bikini.

Barry,

I'm flattered that you think I'm the hottest 40ish you've ever met.

Let me clarify...I'm still 39 for a couple more months.

Unemployment rate is 9.8%. That would mean that we have 92.2% employed rate. Right?

Dan Godwin gets on my nerves everytime he opens his mouth to interrupt someone! Oh and Megan's replacement just doesn't look right! There's just something about her looks!

"Michael Jackson's autopsy revealed he was 5'9"."

Was that the only thing that struck you weird. How about that he was going bald and had tattoos to make it look like he had hair? He also had his lips tattooed pink. They also confirmed he had his penis shortened to make him more white.

j/k - I made up the last one.

Really getting bored with the talk of unemployment...old news. Jobs are out there....those who don't have one don't want one and just aren't hungry enough yet.

I think Mr. Crabtree is receiving bad advice. He will never recapture the lost salary he missed by not inking a deal this year. Doubt his draft slot will improve next year. Not a Randy Moss talent at all. Should have stayed in Lubbock another year.

Geeeee....if ONLY someone had told the 9-11 attackers that they could NOT actually carry out their plans, all those people would have been saved and the attacks would not have occurred!!!

Another Friday and the only remote football item is about the dumbest guy on the plant. What in the wide wide world of all that is sports is a going on. Please reconfirm your belieft in the all mighty football, paleeeeeeze.

My thoughts:

Okies beat the newest round of miami inmates....42 to 23.5

tech tweets nm - 50000 to 4

baylor plays a team with the weakest sounding name EVER. Golden somethings.....kent state. BU wins in a shoot out. 3 to 2.

The aggies continue world domination and beat the ham out of the hogs 84 to 35.

Your welcome and shape up on your football post, or ELSE.

All of you liberal weenie teabaggee's should be very upset that the world leader could not bring home the olympics to his hometown so that all of his cronies could make millions. As I said before, he finally had to praise America on a foreign land to try to sell Chicago.

Megan's replacement has something going on with her chin. Looks overgrown or something for her face. Bugs me too.

Unemployment at 9.8%, we still are at war, Iran has missiles and the President is worried about his pals in Chicago getting the Olympics.

Business as usual.

I have a radical theory about Elizabeth Smart... The simple facts, gone about 9 months, found with a former employee of the family, just basically walking down the street... I think she was pregnant, and the family covered it up. And then the obvious question is why would you go through all of this trouble and this is where I will probably lose you, but I think maybe the Liz's father was the father??? Just a theory. Much like I think the government paid Magic Johnson to say he had HIV at the height of the disease to help bring awareness... J/K... But seriously that guy has had HIV for like 17 years and still no AIDS? Weird...

BG, you're slipping! Why haven't you posted anything about Gov. Perry's cousin being shot by a Montague County deputy? Inquiring minds want to know.

Rock Hudson did bring the Aids epidemic to front. Until then it was considered only a 'gay men's' disease and the President of the U.S. had not addressed the problem.

The Smart girl was not responsible for what happened to her but damn sure knows who is. As for M J the last time anyone saw him he was about ten inches tall and 5feet 9 inches long. As for the recession;do they count the ones you can't give a job?

Anonymous said...

8:11 if you think Rock Hudson was straight you probably beleive GONE WITH THE WIND was a true story. The president at the time did address the aids problem.He did'nt take it you know where and did'nt share neddles with those that did.DAGO

I know that Rock Hudson was gay. I never said he wasn't. My comment was in regard to another post about Magic Johnson. The country took notice when Rock Hudson's dagnosis was made public in 1985 although the epidemic started back in 1981.

I don't care if Republicans want to rip President Obama over going to Copenhagen, Denmark, to pitch for the games. This isn't about politics. It's not about ideology. This is about America. OUR pride. Our chance to shine. Our loss of the games.

So, to all the critics happy about us losing the 2016 games, turn in your flag lapel pins and stop boasting of being so patriotic. When an American city loses, like New York did in the the last go-round, we all lose. And all you critics are on the same level as the America haters all across the world.

You should be shouted down for not backing your own country. The next time any of you bang out a press release about "Buy American" or "Support our troops," remember this moment when your cynical, callous and small-minded brains happily rejoiced when America lost the 2016 Olympic Games
