Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • Well, that Cowboy game was a dud. No offensive line. No defensive line. No receivers. They just got plain beat.
  • Hey, Keith Brooking, if you don't like the Vikings scoring in the final two minutes, do something to stop them. (Brooking called the score "classless and disrespectful" and then confronted Minnesota's bench.)
  • Conan might get $30 million severance because of the Jay Leno/Tonight show issue? What's to complain about?
  • Christina Hendricks (from Mad Men -- which I still haven't seen) qualifies as a "Hey, Now" at the Golden Globes last night. As did a rare Christina Aguilera sighting (who presented with Cher.)
  • But overall the Golden Globes was fairly boring despite the very funny Ricky Gervais hosting.
  • I may be the only person who doesn't appreciate, "Pants On The Ground."
  • And when Brett Favre is singing it in the locker room, I'm totally confused.
  • Brendan Higgins is out as co-anchor of the Channel 5 local morning news. Brutal business.
  • And the Star-Telegram announced on Friday that it would layoff 28 people and not fill 17 open positions. This is a slow death which is hard to watch.
  • After almost screwing it up, I doubt if the Democrats will lose Ted Kennedy's long time Senate seat. I think.
  • Incredible story: The Fort Worth man who needs a face transplant after his was literally destroyed because of an electrical accident while working on a church window. You think you have hardship? Sheesh.
  • I got to play with a Kindle over the Christmas holidays. Very, very cool device. (I didn't know it ran over it's own wireless connection -- you don't need Wifi, you don't need a cell phone plan: You just turn it on and it works.)
  • I like jogging in the mornings and then walking around my neighborhood on weekends. Something oddly peaceful about it.
  • It's about at this point in time when Americans will get bored with the suffering in Haiti.

I was bored with the Haiti issue the first time I heard it....couldn't possibly care less.

Kindles are great. Got mine last year and use it constantly.

"Pants on the ground" was a hoot. Sort of sticks in your head.

Saw "It's Complicated" over the weekend...twice. First time, theatre full of us chicks...laughed till we cried. Second time, lots of couples, i.e. men in the theatre. Somehow they just didn't see the humor in it that we gals saw. It was amazingly accurate regarding divorce, its complicated intricacies, and the idiocy involved in the male mid-life crisis and what can be lost and never retrieved. Great flick, at least we females thought so!

The Cowboys? They let an 80 year old man beat them by eleventy billion points! It is to laugh.

Brett Farve can sing anything he wants, beating the cowboys playing for the Vikings. And that stick you have as a girl is horrible.

If the Cowboys don't want the Vikings scoring at the end of the game, then the Cowboys should have not kept calling timeouts when the Vikings WERE trying to just run out the clock. Suppose Keith Brooking was upset at his own team when they scored the last touchdown to beat Philadelphia by 24 points? Supposed the Cowboys were all that upset when they kicked a field goal at the end of the game, up by touchdowns, to beat Favre last time they played in Dallas? What goes around....and what the Cowboys don't realize is they got what was coming around....not something that was going around.

9:38, too bad the theatre didn't collapse and kill you and everyone there. Or better yet, just crush you so you could listen helplessly under piles of rubble to little sounds and noises wondering if that was your rescue. Until you faded and died. But only after watching your friends bleed to death first. I would not have cared.

OK Barry...remember your lame prediction about Brett Favre this season? Look back and tell us about it.

Bullet number 10 I bet un-re-re-retired and now Minnesota Viking Brett Favre doesn't even start for the last half of season. His skills have diminished, he's a year older, he's coming off shoulder surgery, and he has a torn rotator cuff. Maybe we'll get to see a mid-season tearful re-re-re-retirement.

We are about so see a reenactment of the Boston Tea Party. Latest two polls posted today on realclearpolitics.com show Brown way out in front. This should show elected leaders what happens when they represent their own views rather than those of the people who elected them.

By the way Barry, it is not the Kennedy seat, it is the people's seat. Brown bumped up 10 points in the polls and took the lead when he pointed that out during the debates.

Whenever guys start talking trash about a random girl's features, all the gals chime in with the "you're all fat, bald and ugly" line. But it would appear the shoe is on the other foot today. That gal is thin at the waist, yes; but her hips and rear seem to be in proportion. And her arms are not stick-thin the way you usually see women who work out a bunch

Agree with 10:38's comments

9:38 - the reason the guys didn't laugh the way you gals did is because it's a chic flick! It wasn't meant to appeal to a guy's sense of humor

FINALLY!
Thought for the Day gal has a figure........not one of those fully fed WiseCo pinups.

9:58....DAMMMNNNN!!!!!!!!

Could you please post your name? That way if some disaster ever strikes you or your family, the rest of us know not to bother pitching in to help. Your misery will simply bore us...

Todays gal looks well within the range of ideal weights from Met Life that have been used for years. Wise County gals do get fat when they reach adulthood. I would bet that customers of the Walmart in Roanoke weigh on the average 20 pounds less than those fat asses at the Decatur Walmart.

If you have a Kennedy pimping for you -- as Martha Coakley did -- and he repeatedly gets your name wrong ("Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!") then your campaign might be in trouble.

From the tone of some of the media reports, you'd think that it's America's fault that everyone in Haiti is not taken care of yet.

The Ticket had a great point this mng when discussing Brooking (aka Wigger) he made the comment he was going to circle the game against the Vikings next year Miller man said..why didnt he circle it this year...

When your pear-shaped your waist is really small, but your butt and thighs carry the weight.

If your an apple...well...you got a big belly, no butt and a couple of chicken legs.

Doesn't Conan have to attempt to mitigate damages by finding another job? Hence, if Fox hired him for 20 mil, then NBC only has to cough up 10 mil?

What did 9:58 say I cant find his comment and every one is talking about it?????

Anonymous said...

Though I do not agree with what Keith Brooking did, isn't there something called good sportmanship in any sport? It was a cheap shot, and yes, they got beat, plain and simple...Minnesota should have left it at that...Karma's a, well, you know! As much as I like Brett Favre, I hope the Vikings DO NOT go all the way, just because of that.

I appreciate "Pants on the Ground"...I just don't think the people that the message is intended to get to, will...get it. It is a great message.

Umm, you're about 3 days too late on my boredom. Now if they show some footage of Baby Doc 'necklacing' some subversives, I'm back on board.

Re: Haiti

We've pledged 100 mil to those niggers, that, on top of how ever much we have given them for the last few decades and have gotten nothing in return. The place keeps getting worse.

How 'bout this, Mr. post-racial President? Promise them statehood. Move 500,000 skilled, unemployed white people down there and give them a half billion dollars to turn the place into a state. They'll fix what them jungle bunnies ain't ever gonna figure out

Fickle readers have moved on to other comments. However, I have to make a point that Favre could still be my baby daddy if he flicked an eyelid at me. My siginificant other should be proud that I am willing to do such a fine future-hall-of-fame quarterback. There's not much you can say against Favre other than he wants to retire at the end of recent season, but then fortgets about that and has healed at the beginning of every new season.

Point second, some women are built like girl of the day and their weight is normal, but I bet her legs are a bit short. I'm built the same way 36, 24, 37 and eat a ton. The booty shows she eats just fine!

Barry...get a Nook from Barnes and Noble. Got mine Thursday and love it. Then you can buy books and lend them to me (or vice versa)... a feature not available on other devices.
