Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Watched Slumdog Millionaire again over the weekend. Still love it.
  • Ran outside on Saturday morning and was smart enough to appreciate it. Cool Fall morning, trees turning, realizing I've lived a pretty lucky life.
  • That wasn't my MLK "I've seen the mountain top" speech by they way.
  • Halloween is becoming a decorate-your-lawn kind of holiday. I like that.
  • Observation I stole from writer Richie Whitt: Cowboys' Miles Austin looks like A-Rod.
  • And even though he's had two good games, I'd tap the brakes on Austin's Hall of Fame induction.
  • Miley Cyrus' little sister dressed up for Halloween. Oh, my.
  • There's really a George Clooney moving coming out called "The Men Who Stare At Goats"?
  • There's some huge "get motivated" convention in Fort Worth today. Ugh. I would be very unmotivated this morning if I had to attend that.
  • You've got to be kidding: Over the weekend three helicopters went down in Afghanistan killing 14 U.S. soldiers. And all of them appear to be accidental crashes.
  • And in other war news: Car bombs kill 150 in Iraq. Whose idea was it to start a war there?
  • The woman ticketed in Dallas for "not speaking English" has been in the U.S. for 30 years. And she wants the City of Dallas to pay her $7,000 medical bill for going to the emergency room because she was "stressed" over the situation. Puhleeze.
  • I don't understand the "Halloween Party" at the Decatur Convention Center at a price of $80 a couple.
