blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Channel 8 story on Decatur's Jackie Murphree being pushed for Sunday's White Rock Marathon. I think her civil lawsuit is still pending, by the way.
  • Stumbled across Nip/Tuck last night. Good grief, when did it jump the shark? Oh yeah, that was Season Two.
  • Cowboys Roy Williams irritates me to no end with his Hook 'Em Horns hand sign whenever he (rarely) scores a touchdown. I guess he's just trying to relive the days when he was relevant.
  • I like gloves. Gloves are underrated.
  • Danica Patrick, who announced yesterday that she will race on some Saturdays next year in the NASCAR series, is one of the most bitter girls I've ever seen --- and for no reason. Edit: Hey, NASCAR Bubba who chided me by saying, "NASCAR races on Sunday." Not the Nationwide series. I hate NASCAR and even I knew that.
  • What Microsoft's Windows is to the Apple Computer, Google's new Android operating system for mobile phones will be to Apple's iPhone. The Android will explode over the next five years.
  • As much as I like college football, I'm appalled at Congress' trying to meddle with the BCS.
  • If you are familiar with "auto-tune" (which is the cause of the death of music) and you keep up with pop culture news, you'll love The Year In Auto-Tune.
  • Have you seen the clip of the girl getting hit by a guy in tonight's episode of The Jersey Shore on MTV. Good grief.
  • I'm headed to an office Christmas party of Saturday night. I like it because it's not my office party. But it'll drive me nuts if the owner stands up and talks about profits instead of the employees.
  • Hot teachers have now moved on to each other.
  • That cute little kid from Family Ties isn't so cute anymore.
  • No offense to any Facebook friends, but I could not care less about how you are performing in "Mafia Wars."
  • President Obama formally received the Nobel Peace Prize this morning. It makes me happy simply because it drives the right wing nuts.

I'm one of your so-called right wingers, and Obama receiving the Nobel peace Prize does not drive me nuts in the least. It does however provide further confirmation that the Nobel has become more irrelevant than ever.

Finally, Congress is doing something productive in trying to dismantle the BCS.

I'm sick of "Mafia Wars" crap. That, along with a few other things is ruining Facebook.

People love those crazy games on Facebook. That stuff drives me KERAZY. I'm too scared to press IGNORE though, in fear that my friends will know it and think I'm shunning them. What's a girl to do?

Re the two love-struck teachers:

Barry, did you notice that they were both in ROMANCE languages. How apropos. Hot lady teacher on hot lady teacher action in the classroom! I bet the school had to Lysol that room down to get rid of all the pheromones sticking to the walls. Great stuff!

It's not Mafia Wars that's ruining Facebook, it's people who think the rest of the world wants to know about it. And people who think I care about their farm or their aquarium or their zoo or their Christmas "gifts" from friends or anything else they think the world should know. I play some of those games too, but I never ever post any of my results. Because NO ONE ELSE CARES.

Next time you get anything from Mafia Wars, click "hide" which is out a little bit to the right of that person's post. It will ask you if you want to block that application in the future. This works for any of that annoying crap, and you'll never see Mafia Wars, or Farmville, or whatever you hide, ever again.

I like Farmville, and have friends that help me by fertilizing my crops.......sorry nobody cares about you, Anon, 10:16AM.....it's probably because you are an arsehole or something similar.

BG--You're a dope on the Nobel but a genius on the BCS. I too think congress needs to stay out of the BCS. That being said, I think the BCS is BS.

10:35, you may have a few friends who care because they play those games too, but I promise you the rest of your friends list thinks you're cluttering up their feeds and are pretty sick and tired of it.

As a Facebook game player, I try to choose "do not publish" or "skip" whenever possible; however, those who DO play, get points and stuff when they see your posts, so it is a way to interact with others who play the same games.

Like another poster said, just click hide on games or set your preferences to not show any games or stuff like that.

wow, thats for the stiffy! that chick is hot!!!!

Kat said...

FB: I think there is a large number of people that don't realize you can choose not to post updates on their wall when playing games.

Then again....it is their facebook.

The Droid: I'm extremely tempted to switch from ATT to Verizon just so I can get the Droid....forever I wanted the iphone and was looking to upgrade my iphone...but now, I'm thinking I really want that Droid contraption. I agree...that thing will blowup.

I <3 google.

Yesterday's Survivor mention...the crowd that shows up to make their tape = is people watching Platinum!

Cute kid from family ties:
Yikes. He had so much potential in the looks department...why'd he have to mess with it?

RPM said...

I have pretty much abandoned Facebook because of all that junk. I was also afraid to hit ignore or hide because I didn't want to offend the senders. Play all the games you want, I'm not interested in them.

Cute kid from famit ties: He's still cute...In a crackhead sorta way.

You won't offend if you ignore because they won't even know it unless they ask. Just hide the apps and you'll be fine.

Barry,
This morning on the Today show, they aired a 911 call from a lady who's house was being broken into. She told the dispatcher that she was armed, and would kill him "graveyard dead" if he entered her house. You need to find the clip and post. There have been alot of burglaries lately, maybe this will make the bad guys think first.

Tell the Bubba who chided you about your use of NASCAR that your original statement was fine. The Nationwide Series is a NASCAR series. NASCAR covers all of the stock car racing series.

Judy said...

The audio of the 911 call that 1:48 is talking about is on Denny Crane's blog. Unbelieveable!

Ever since the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded, in 1994, to life-long terrorist, Yasser Arafat it has been nothing more than a global joke to people who actually understand that it's the only way Norway acquires a moment's worth of recognition on the global stage. Obama receiving a prize for peace, days after escalating a war most liberals view as pointless, is only slightly more disturbing than that pompous windbag and head pitchman for the global warming hoax, Al Gore receiving one, in 2007, for being able to perpetrate the world's largest scam based on massaged, manipulated and fraudulent data. Hey! You have to give Al credit, he did manage to become a BILLIONAIRE while being head cheerleader for Team Polar Bears. Let us not forget, Jimmy Carter was awarded a Peace Prize in 2002. Based on that list of "winners" I cannot imagine ANYONE is too upset and/or surprised that Obama is on the list. Think about it, Obama like Arafat believes, as stated in Obama's acceptance speech in Norway, that war is justified and necessary and just like Al Gore, Obama has no problem with massaging/manipulating numbers to justify his agenda.

Congress is looking into the BCS not only to see if it's fair but they are more interested in where the money goes, is there payoffs, bribes, what have you. It is true, they have more important things to worry about such as being a part of the Obama ruin or not being a part. Him getting the Nobel doesn't bother me it only proves how silly and out of touch they are.

I enjoy Facebook, but find it DISGUSTING when I look up and see Rick Perry's political ads.

I predict that 80% of you will someday regret making your life a public affair through facebook or whatever other pointless social networking sites. I'm gonna stick to privacy and anonymity, thank you. It used to be the American way. Back when America was America and had a constitution.

10:11, NASCAR races on Saturdays and Sundays and sometimes even Friday nights. By the way, NASCAR does not race on anything owned by Sunday, as you suggest.

Here's a random Monday evening thought for you-you came up in Algebra II class today. A new boy came in while I was subbing for fourth period because they apparently had no sub, maybe because they are evil, and he was looking at the map of the school all perplexed and I felt sorry for him and said something about the school being huge and he said that he'd only been to a small school with about 500 kids in it, so I asked him where he was coming from and he said Decatur. Because I think I'm hilarious, I said, "Oh, do you know Barry Green?"

His response? "Yeah, he defended me when I got arrested. He's a really cool guy." So, there you have it Barry Green. You are super popular with high school set.

I like gloves, too.

Canvas with thinsulate™ lining for hunting.

Leather for yard work or welding.

Nylon insulated for snowmobiling.

Nitrile for changing oil or staining woodwork.

Now, counselor, do you like gloves that you can wear for a purpose, or do you like them, Johnnie Cochran style, to help you get someone off?

I heard the rumblings about Danica's decision on Monday and then saw her talking about it on Tuesday. It's going to be interesting. I was glad to see she's starting with an Arca race.
