Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Well, my Blizzard prediction is coming true. Welcome to Awesome Town. Population: Me.
  • But I'm at my desk all suited up.
  • It is absolutely beautiful outside. And it's going to get beautifulerererer all day long.
  • Hwy 287 report: From Decatur to Rhome, not bad (except for that van rollover I saw). From Rhome to Fort Worth: Awful.
  • Thank you Decatur PD for not seeing me slide through that stop sign on FM 51 this morning.
  • Anyone else kinda freaked out by that anti-lock brake vibration?
  • I'm not sure what the status of all Wise County school closings is (see Messenger), but most are delayed openings until 10:00 a.m. That's dumb. if they don't shut down for today, why in the world do they shut down at other times? Edit: Between 7:30 and 8:00 most, if not all the schools went from "Open at 10:00 a.m." to "Closed".
  • Except Alvord ISD is shut down. I actually heard WBAP's Hal Jay refer to it as "Alvoid" this morning.
  • I think the word "meh" is funny, but I can never remember to use it.
  • Have you seen the mysterious "Miss Me Yet?" billboard with George Bush's picture on it? You know my answer, and it isn't even "meh".
  • Saw where a person on twitter says she is about to write about a "proposed sexual offender home near Crafton." I've never hear of a "sexual offender home."
  • There's an alleged Sports Illustrated cover curse which has been going on for years. Last week there was a "controversial" Olympic Preview cover featuring super hawt downhill skier Lindsey Vonn. She announced yesterday she's been injured and her participation in the Olympics is now in jeopardy.
  • Whatever happened to carpal tunnel syndrome?
  • The oftentimes quiet Wise County Courthouse is jumping today (if it is open): Jackie Murphree trial continues, the Grand Jury is expected to meet, and the County Court at Law has a full pre-trial docket. Trust me, there is no room up there for all that. Assuming it's all not canceled.
  • The boys on the Ticket estimated Troy Aikman's salary from Fox for his NFL duties between $4 and $8 million. That can't possibly be true, can it?
  • I committed the cardinal sin of buying different brand black socks over the last year. Now I have Sock Drawer Chaos.

Too cool and snowy to drink....good job on the random thought chick.....
at least you're sober this early

The Vonn thing is a setup. An effort to craft some sort of "hero" interest for an event that is not important anymore, and for which the network is going to take a financial bath. Did anyone notice how orchestrated her injury coverage seems to be? Being "scooped" on the Today Show? etc. Oh, and how it just so happens that the injured American is super hot? C'mon folks wake up and smell the coffee, especially on a nice snowy morning like this one.

All you Obama lovers need to seriously ask yourselves why God made snow white.

8:01AM, because snow blankets everything, crushing and killing? Oh, and its dumb. I think that is about right.

Anonymous said...

8:09-- The fact that you thought you should answer that at all speaks volumes. Your answer is.... uh....uh... hell it defies explanation.

OK, gotta go see how badly my truck is crushed now.

Carpal Tunnel is still around - from one who wakes up with the fingers in the right hand tingling every morning. I know, go see a dr........

Look at the sex offender registry for Chico. A number of these guys live on FM 2127, and 2 of them have the same address. I believe the "home" is not proposed but already inhabited.

Love the snow!

Love new George W. billboard!

Love Global Warming hearings are cancelled due to excess snow and Capital shut down!

Love being a conservative!

Love being a Christian!

Don't you love it when King Obama-samy came on and was mad his Senate appointments couldn't make it through! Said he was going to wait until recess and make his appointments. He is SUCH a tit bag! Things aren't going his way now, and he's going to take his ball and go home or somewhere else. I could only wish ..........................................................

I surely do not miss GW, because I am a conservtive. GW, not so much.

But his years beat the hell out of what is happening now.

Could it get much worse? The answer is you betcha, and it will.

The good news is, when someone gets in office that takes the risk away from business; taxes, energy costs, health care costs, and a multitude of other cost risk, the economy will take off like a scalded duck.

Where is Al Gore this morning? This is making a believer out of me. We need some help. This started around the time of the Copenhagen global warming thing and keeps coming. I remember the delegates had to hurry back because the airports were about to be snowed in. Who is in charge?

Anonymous said...

9:07, don't worry, Barry will post a picture of a 1/4 black, 3/4 white woman. As a matter of fact, I think he did that a day or two ago. I guess he is racist against full blooded Africians.

Only in Wise County can they confuse Global Warming with "Look its Snowing". Its about extreme weather patterns.

Anonymous said...

Yes, I miss the Bush years...didn't know how much till the current idiot started all his "changes"!

Love the snow...wish we had it for months on end....wish I lived in Alaska!

Carpal tunnel: still around and still requiring surgeries to fix it.

Couldn't care less about the skier or the olympics..bunch of boring crap.

Care even less about the trials going on in big D.

All of you conservative idiots; the Bush years are what caused this.

Was diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel in both handw/wrists a few months ago. Found an INCREDIBLE dr. (and VERY nice guy!) who fixed me right up! Out patient procedure, bandage for 10 days (was typing the very night of surgery), kept working the whole time. I have a job where I work on a computer 80% of the time (maybe more). Can't wait to have the second hand done. Would be thrilled to share his name! A VERY small 1/3" scar is all that remains! Those Dr. Brown Hand Center commercials with "new technology"??? BOGUS! My dr. has been doing this procedure for at least 15 years!

10:41, The Community Reinvestment Act is what caused this. Or are you talking about the snow?

Giday you blokes in Texas here down under I don't even have to heat me billy for a cup of tea it is so hot. 95 high 77 low
Sydney is on target to break its record for longest run of warm nights, not good news for those who have difficulty sleeping in the humid warmth.
Maybe that global warming is just down here.

You know the banks are still being pressured by the government to loan money to people who can't afford to pay it back. So the CHANGE isn't really change. The Obama Administration is made up of people who hate the country and want to see it fail because they think we will turn to them if things get really bad....what they don't realize is that we won't turn to them...we will turn on them.

10:41,

Dems taking control of Congress in '06 caused this. Everything was fine with Bush in the WH until then.

About 7" of snow in Bridgeport. Gee, I wish I could hear another recorded message from Gore on global warming! sheesh .....

Yeah, it's about extreme weather patterns today. It changes with the weather. Back in the 70's it was the next ice age...from the same hippies that bring us "climate change." Come on, Maynard.

Who ya gonna believe on climate issues: qualified climate scientists, physicists, chemists, CIA, NOAA, NASA, NAS, even oil company scientists - or Wise Co bloggers. I'm kinda inclined to go with the climatologists.

Melbourne, Australia temperature ranges today from a high of 72 degrees and a low of 68 degrees. Sidney is in the 77 to 91 range. So stop the BS.

12:16 - are you really as stupid as you indicate? Did you think those temps you quoted are Fahrenheit? They're Celsius and 24 is 75 and 35 is 95 - kinda hot!

I’ve been a Texan for almost 7 decades and I saw the queers and Republicans come out of the closet here about the same time.
Then the Bush family brought there bastard sons to Midland TX . from New Haven, Conn. like a bunch of Yankee carpet braggers they are.
What happens the dumbest son runs for governor got elected twice and the rest is has been down hill ever since for our state and country after he was elected president two times by the good old Yankee big business for the rich let it trickle down Republicans.
How long are you going to let them crap on you down there?
PS
Thank You 2:12 for telling the D A how to read temperatures. He has to be a Republican.

12:16, I may be stupid in your social network of educated persons but I do have a degree in mathematics from a major university. I also have four semesters of physics, four semesters of chemistry and seven semesters of biology. I have lived in Europe and speak a second language fluently. I do understand Celsius. I also know that for the first eleven day of this month, Sidney had a temperature range of 20.2C to 27.9C. A little warm today with a high of 31.5C so far, not 35C or 95F. I do have cousins living in Sydney.

i measured 10" of snow today at alvoid with my 10" measuring tool, it sure was cold too..!

Don't miss GWB's spending, but miss his Christian values, his concern for our military and the security from muslim evil he brought to us after 9/11. Unfortunately, we how have a radical progressive that hates whites, hates capitalism and hates the US. That was some real change. Thanks to all the idiots who voted for him.

Barry, much better job on the pic. Thanks.

I'm no scientist but I am very amused when I read numerous people throwing out comments about global warming whenever there's a cold spell.

"Well thank you most brilliant word police.

You are most welcome. It's a difficult job, but someone's got to do it. And no reward it necessary-spreading the good word of proper grammar and carefully crafted sentences to the uneducated, unwashed masses is simply my calling in life.

In that very spirit, I must confess my sin. I see that I left out the word "do" between "to" and "a." As penace, I reread your original post ten times. My Eyes! My Eyes!
