Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • I wasn't sure if I had posted the top pic before, so I had to add a bonus pic. It looks like her name is "April."
  • Craziest lead story in the news was that commercial plane that overshot the airport by over 100 miles -- and the pilots would not respond to radio contact. The pilots claim they were arguing. I bet they fell asleep. But does either make you feel better?
  • TCU has a "no umbrella" policy for football games (which wasn't the best policy for last weekends rain game).
  • Last night's crazy dream: I was in a 1,500 seat arena to see Elton John (whose voice was cracking) but my seat was connected to the back wall on a swivel with it's default position looking directly into that back wall.
  • Watched a horrible movie about Ted Bundy the other night. But I couldn't look away.
  • Blew past Praire View v. Southern last night which was a football game between two predominately black schools. Oddly, they both had white kickers. Let me correct that, both had horrible white kickers.
  • I would never initiate a standing ovation.
  • But I never have the guts to not stand during a standing ovation.
  • Did ESPN ever air the footage of Bridgeport game where Colt McCoy was in the stands?
  • Literally vs. Figuratively bugs me. When someone says, "He literally took that guy's head off" he really means, "He figuratively took that guy's head off."
  • I'm not a music guy, but I noticed some group called Phoenix singing 1901 on Jay Leno and I heard it again in a new Cadillac commercial. And when I googled it, I found out they've already sang it on Saturday Night Live. The song reminds me of something.
  • If we only knew what was going on in other people's lives -- it would make out wheels off lives look boring.
  • I think the man in the background could be a Blog reader.
  • I hope this Fort Worth boy scout was always prepared. Oh, my. They don't have merit badges for that, do they?
  • Wow. Take a look at the cover of the book coming out to counter Sarah Palin's "Going Rogue." I think I'd pick up the wrong book by mistake.

You have used that top pic before, and so have I...literally!

8:45 - Now that's funny AND grammatically correct!

I always wanted to earn that kind of merit badge as a 17 year.... I was always prepared though. Most 17 year olds are.

The female Scout leader may have been teaching the young Scout the sheep shank knot.

Does "1901" remind you of this song?

I venture an untrained opinion that the psychology behind your inability to initiate a standing O, yet admission to the herd mentality of participating, is similar to the current group of sheeple known as liberals. Never had a thought on their own, but will passionately stand up for what someone else told them they believe in.

Did anyone hear about something happening in the parking lot of a Hurst WalMart yesterday? I was looking at the Tarrant Co Med Examiner site and a man was found dead in his car. BUT the odd thing is, a woman with the same last name and address died later that afternoon in the ICU. Same address of incident also. But no COD listed. Hmmmmm

I thought I saw something about that yesterday, about a man running over his wife in the parking lot of a walmart and then shooting himself.

My grandmother always said if every house had to put its dirty laundry (FIGURATIVELY speaking) in the front yard, most would be glad to claim our own and not other's.

That was on the news last night. A husband hot his wife in the parking lot and then shot himself.

I'll tell ya what that song reminds you of... something that sucks.

I've never heard of a stadium having a no umbrella policy. Sounds dumb.

That Prairie View & Southern game is where the main attraction is the battle of the bands at halftime, isn't it?

Which Bundy movie?

I literally think the 1901 tune is catchy, the singer ruins it. He's trying to be different I suppose, ye ole contrarian vocalist style. He succeeded with: "hey hey hey hey hey hey", real mind bending stuff, figuratively.

Man, I would have stuck it out past Webelos if I knew the scouting "extras". Camping with Uncle Bob just never appealed to me.

Think about it...if either of those kickers was any good, would they be playing for lower-tier schools like Prairie View or Southern?

When I was in the Scouts they taught us to rub two sticks together to make fire. Sounds like those folks were rubbin' sumthin else together, but all they were making was heat. Wonder if she got a variation of the three finger salute? Shocking!

UT Darrell K Royal Memorial Stadium has not allowed umbrellas for years - you can't see over umbrellas & we like to see.

Everyone knows to wear slickers with hoods. It works out fine for the football fan that doesn't mind the rain.

RPM said...

Not sure about ESPN, but he did talk a little about the game on The Dan Patrick Show.

So readers of this blog watch movies about Ted Bundy, surf the Tarrant County Medical Examiners website and are interested in murder-suicide stories.

Anybody else like to watch "Dexter?"

Anonymous said...

I'm reading the Dexter book right now. Haven't watched the show. Is it good?

"I think I'd pick up the wrong book by mistake."

Yeah, you probably would.

Dexter, albeit quite shocking, is one of the best shows to ever hit the moving picture box.

When Ted Bundy starting beating kids in pajamas in the head with clubs and their blood got all over him and the walls before he ripped off their panties and assaulted their dead bodies, I did not get the same "must watch" feeling.

Anonymous said...

yea in the most recent version of bundy it was shocking at the end where the guards were getting great pleasure getting bundy "prepared" for his execution by shoving about 40 large cotton balls up his no good ass and the shaving the head part...but best of all when they went roll on 2 with him the executioner pulled off a black mask to reveal a beautiful long-haired brunette with a perfect 10 body..she seemed pretty happy about getting to pull the switch on that killer of beautiful brunettes..the movie was much more intense than the 1'st one..
