Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • It's been a crazy baby week for the blogroll over to the right. Silicone Alley had her first baby, and yesterday BagOfNothing announced that Mrs. BagOfNothing was pregnant for the first time. The only way this gets better is if Crazy Texas Mommy surprises us with an announcement.
  • Dick Cheney endorses Kay Bailey Hutchison and she's happy about it?
  • Edit: WBAP's Mark Davis called Dick Cheney "a modern day Winston Churchill" this morning at 8:40 a.m. Really? Davis on crack?
  • Crazy picture of a criminal defendant in a Fort Worth trial. He's either worried about the swine flu or everyone else is worried about him spitting on them so they put a "spit mask" on him. It happens.
  • Ugh. I lost my DWI case yesterday. I tell you when I win so I might as well tell you when I lose. But driving two miles on a closed lane on 380 wasn't a good factual start to the case. But I really liked my client.
  • But I was in the courthouse bathroom early that morning and looked in the mirror and instantly thought about Keanu Reeves in the Devil's Advocate.
  • I swear I heard a young girl talking on a cell phone (loudly) on the square in Decatur yesterday afternoon say the following in a gleeful manner: "I feel so sorry for your mom. You're sixteen and you drink, smoke, and have sex. I mean even if your parents let you, they shouldn't know that you do that."
  • The president of DART said that next year's UT/OU game would be a night game, and the Dallas Morning News just reported it without a second thought. Then all hades broke loose in the college football world as both schools denied it. I bet the DART president (1) isn't a bright man and (2) was thinking about the Cotton Bowl Classic that will be played in 2011 for the first time at night in Arlington.
  • Cold front coming through today? Yay. But the three feet of snow in Colorado makes me want to go skiing for the first time in years.
  • President Obama went to Dover Air Force Base at midnight last night to watch the caskets of our dead soldiers from Afghanistan be removed from a transport plane. I hope that influences his decision making.
  • If there is bacon on your burger, you probably shouldn't be eating it.
Oops. Comments were turned off by accident. Fixed.

Yet another drunk driver driving on a closed portion of a highway....hopefully this person didn't kill or seriously injure someone. I don't know how you can defend that

There is nothing random about that thought Barry. You have been making up for the one from a few days ago but this one outdid all of the makeups.
Yeah, Mark Davis has been on crack for some time now. I think he might have hung around Rush and Glenn and Sean or at least picked up a bunch of entertainment tips from them. They know how to push buttons too well and it's making them rich, undeservedly so.
I'm with you on the skiing. haven't been in 13 years but even at 62, with a month of leg excercises, I'm there if things work out just right.

Interesting Messenger this week!

Writer in Letter to Editor points out DISD's bond includes items that have appeard on previous DISD bonds and posses the question, WHY?
Can the Board be trusted to follow thru.

In same issue is an ad from the Eagle Booster Boys, charmingly deceptive.........no menton of stadium or turf..........although the turf portion accounts for almost 25% of the bond.

You don't suppose this bond will be no different.......and what is actually built won't match the origianl promise.......HMMMMMMMMMM

Do you remember the scene where Keanu & Al Pacino are walking alongside the rooftop reflecting pool? That stroll seriously creeped me out. Something about casually sauntering along the roof edge of a 60+ story building with no fence or barrier keeping you from stepping over the edge. Just blue sky. Scary.

That random pic makes up for a gloomy, rainy day...and that previous pic, as others have stated

Perhaps Mark Davis meant that Dick Cheney SOUNDS like a modern day Churchill. I mean, they both have the kind of voices that would make good Bond villains.
Not buying that, huh?

If you were KBH, would you rather have Cheney for you, or against you?

If folks are worried that you might spit on them, it's no surprise you are a criminal defendant

Whenever I think of Devil's Advocate, Charlize Theron and Connie Nielsen always come to mind, not Keanu Reeves. But that's just how I'm wired...

How do you say you feel sorry for somebody in a "gleeful manner"?
"...even if your parents let you, they shouldn't know that you do that."
Huh? Wha? Is that the teen version of "Don't ask, don't tell"?

Seems to me like a good lawyering sort would be able to exploit the fact that their client was driving on a closed road. "Your Honor, my client, in an intoxicated condition, was just trying to keep the open portion of Hwy 380 safe by driving on the closed portion. I rest my case."

Bacon?! On a burger?!
Oy! That's not kosher

She reminds me of a chick I use to date...man she would bang my lights out and her long flowing hair would hang down all over the place and I'd get tangled up...Gawd I miss those days.

Uh, so sorry to disappoint, but there will be no baby news from me. Although I am prone to bouts of screaming "Get me a toddler and some fake hair STAT!" while watching "Toddlers and Tiaras" I am thankful everyday that it's physically impossible for me to ever reproduce again. Society as a whole should also be thankful for my sterilizaton. Plus, I'm pretty sure if I called my parents to tell them I am pregnant and have no intentions of marrying the baby daddy AGAIN, it would probably kill them because they're elderly now.

However, this has prompted me to go ahead with the blog post I almost did yesterday!! YAY!!

Wait a minute--Isn't this the President who was going to end all wars immediately and has a clear-cut vision as to the strategies which will bring the wars to a swift conclusion? Isn't he weighing heavily the stragegies concerning additional troop deployment made by our best military minds? Surely, Obama's superior military tactical abilities in the field will lead him to the proper courses of action. Then again, maybe he'll just look dang good in front of the cameras.

I don't know who should be more upset - KBH or Rick Perry. When I heard Dick Cheney supporting KBH, I questioned the fact that I like KBH. On the other hand, Sarah Palin supporting Rick Perry is actually worse. The pretty girl supporting the pretty boy - both whom are idiots. If I were either one - I would say thanks but no thanks. Maybe that will make the Democrat a shoo in.

Other than fat, ugly chicks, what 16-year olds don't drink and have sex these days?

I was going to say something mind blowing and earth shattering this morning until I disvovered the comments were off.
Now, I don't remember what it was.
The worlds loss I suppose.

I bet the families of the fallen heroes that Obammy is saluting as they are carried off the plane are very proud of the Commander in Chief as he dithers on trying to decide to send more troops to support our men and women fighting in Talibanistan. I can almost read his mind as he salutes on whitch golf course he wants to play next. This little empty suit is pathetic.

9:58. Thank goodness you didn't establish our legal system. It allows for EVERYONE to get a fair trial and have legal representation. It's the lawyers who keep the feds from running rampant all over our rights. Even those who break the law have rights, thank God.

We have another "vote-getter" tonight at the Bridgeport Schools... Votes for... um... I mean, Goodies for Grandparents. An excuse, um... reason to make all the teachers come work TONIGHT instead of the usual morning event by the same name. Why TONIGHT? Because it gets more votes. Which gets more taxpayer money. *evil scrooge laugh*.

I know some teachers are very unhappy about having to use non-paid, time out from the their personal lives to help get out the vote.. I mean, help show off to grandparents. But, it is critical for us to build/buy [insert random hot-button-guaranteed-to-get-voters-attention-item here].

Now mind you, if we put half the volunteers, paid-teacher time and effort into tutoring kids that we do into trying to grab more taxpayer money via bond elections, then those test scores would rise. But I say, MORE MACBOOKS AND ORDER THE TURF!

Double-Fake Mr. Bland

1:14 - Bridgeport ISD is grasping at straws to get votes. What's next?......a ballot in the report cards.

Signs out all over telling us to "vote for the kids"........

......sure, just which administrators are already looking for a higher paying job if they can brag they got this bond issue passed?

Luv politics.

Funny thought about the DART president in his OU - Texas game time statement. I think you nailed it.

A vote getter decision in Decatur today. Tonight's Freshman & JV games have been moved to the field by the old high school. They don't want to damage the stadium field for the varsity game a week from tomorrow! Their message is loud and clear: We wouldn't have to move the games if we had a turf field. Decatur voters, don't fall for it!!!!

Decatur voters: vote NO to school improvements until they separate the crap from the necessities.

Best pick me up in a while. That bathing suit top looks like lingerie. Or maybe it is a bra. Either way, I hope bathing suit designs go in that direction.
