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

Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • Those following the Jenny Bizaillion posts got some bad news last night. It looks like she'll have both feet amputated today. Horrible, horrible situation. (Although that situation changes dramatically day to day.)
  • It looks like the Jackie Murphree trial will go into next week. Among those to have compassion for are the members of the jury. That's a lot of involuntary commitment going on.
  • The Grapevine 121/114 project begins today. Get ready for years of congestion if you head that way. Then again, can it be much worse than it already is?
  • Double killing at a small Texas courthouse on Monday. (Not ours).
  • I wonder what the average Bubba thinks about men's figure skating? Sissy looking boys performing athletic moves that he could never do?
  • Curling is dumb. Always has been.
  • The fact that you get to choose what you get to give up for Lent kind of defeats the purpose, doesn't it? The rule should be that you have to pick someone you've wronged over the last year and then they get to pick what you must abstain from.
  • Talk to a high ranking guy in the Sheriff's Office yesterday who said that they received a criminal mischief call over the weekend when someone knocked down a lady's snowman.
  • I ate at Joe's Crab Shack last night and made the comment that I was surprised that the Cajun place wasn't celebrating Fat Tuesday. I received a ton of stares. At least I thought the restaurant it had a Louisiana feel to it.
  • See how I never make a Dallas Mavericks post? Aren't you thankful?
  • I still can't get over the fact that the guy that got screwed out of his $1 million lottery winnings is named "Willis Willis." (Although he was awarded about $350,000 yesterday.)
  • Kenneth Starr at Baylor Basketball game last night: Man be styling.

I bet you were confusing Joe's Crab Shack with Razoos, both of which kind of look the same from the outside.

I know a preacher named Terry Terry. Seriously.

Actually the whole Catholic faith is based on self serving choices. You confess, so you can get to heaven, you pray to the rosary so you get what you want, you pay the diocese to get the divorce you want, you don't eat fish on Friday so you don't have to go to confession so you can get to heaven. What part is about community and others........not much.

Joe's Crab Shack food doesn't look
like it does on TV.

I was at Joe's last night too. I saw you as you left. Good food and they make the birthday people do funny things.

Always thought the two name thing was odd. Remember retired UN General Secretary Boutros Boutros Ghali? Could never say the name without snickering.

The Random Morning Girl pict was startling. Made me spill my coffee.

Men's figure skating:
I turned to NBC last night hoping to find something good to watch, only to see the aforementioned. So I commenced to doing other things waiting for that to finish. I heard the commentators going on about how a particular skater was very vocal and made shocking comments every time a microphone was in range. A flamboyant US male skater? Go figure. I believe his name is Johnny Weir? (Wonder if he introduces himself as "Johnny Weir - rhymes with...")
Anyway, the announcer says (I had to run the Tivo back to make sure I heard it correctly): "...every man in America wish(es) he was Johhny, because he rooms with Tanith Belbin (hot female skater)."
Huh??? The reason he's rooming with Tanith Belbin is the reason almost no man in America wants to be him. That announcer is either totally clueless, or a former figure skater - or both.
And being able to perform certain "athletic" moves doesn't make me jealous, or wish I could be someone else. To each his own

And thinking Joe's is gonna observe Fat Tuesday is like thinking Taco Bell is gonna observe Cinco de Mayo. Or that Texas Roadhouse will remember the Alamo
Don't tell me you're still surprised to get a ton of stares whenever you go out in publick!

I still can't believe that guy who shot the pope was named Sirhan Sirhan. (Look it up, kids!)

I always thought Joe's Crab Shack was cajun too. Maybe everyone else there didn't realize that? lol!

Don't talk bad about Curling if you have never done it . Its addicting !!

Anonymous said...

As to your Curling comment...How can you say curling is stupid? It is a cultural thing. I think it is boring to watch but not stupid. I'm sorry but that just struck me wrong especially from a open minded liberal such as your self.

8:41,

I'd be more informed about someone's faith before I posted.

Joe's Crab Shack: might not be cajun, but you're guaranteed to get overpriced food that is barely better than Long John Silver and bad service. I can see why you sought them out for a killer Fat Tuesday Experience.

Joe's Crab shack isn't the least bit Cajun. It is over priced. Seafood in the DFW area causes me to understand why some people here don't like seafood.

Barry fancies himself to be an open minded liberal. Sheltered in Wise County with race guilt is what it seems to me.

The pope/Bobby Kennedy...okay, I got my assassination victims confused.
So shoot me already!
sorry, kids

It was Bobby Kennedy.

8:41. You think Catholics are the only ones that observe Lent?

Why would you equate seafood with Mardi Gras?

On December 21 2012 the 121/114 project will be done.

And Bobby Kennedy's son was killed by Syringe Syringe.

8:41 obviously doesn't know much about the Catholic community in Wise County and its contributions. I personally know several members that contribute many hours every week to WARM - there's also the continuous food collection as well as the diaper drive.

Maybe 8:41 should give up opening their mouth before they think for Lent. Just know your facts before you criticize.

BARRY IS STILL OFF THE BOOZE!!!!!!!
AWESOME RANDOM THOUGHT GIRL!!!!!


Now to the Olympics.......
As a WiseCo hillbilly....I have a hard time, like you, getting into the men in tights on ice thing, curling, bobsledding and the whole "Winter Olympics" idea.
As I recall from my ancient days in school, the Roman and Greeks were the original Olympains. i have a hard time putting the picture of a Greek Olympian curling, skating on ice or skateboarding.......curling to them was something that happened after a swift kick to the groin during a good old time wrestling match...
Sorry.....give me the old time Olympics where men are men in competition.........

Male figure skaters are probably, for the most part, gay. However, they are great athletes.

I'm still not sure that figure skating is a sport? If it is, is dancing a sport?

Anonymous said...

um...crawfish = cajun! there!

I observe lent...from a distance.

Figure skating is not a sport; it's a competition. I think to be a sport you need some objective measurement to determine a winner: score, speed, distance, etc.

I have lent in my Navel.

The original Olympians competed nekkid. Anybody wanna see those guys on TV?
And...they were Greek. Think about it

There is enough room in the picture for another beautiful woman, so why the wasted space? We need to make the most out of the available space.

The Methodist church observes lent. However, as a non-attending member, I chose to give up giving up for lent years ago.

If you were in the mood for seafood then you should have gone to GoGo Gumbo. So good it doesn't even belong in Wise County!

I've never won the loto. I think that is a sin. I'll give that up for lent. I really would do good things with the money. Part of it anyway.

I have lent in my eyes because she had lent in her navel.

My husband went to vote today, noticed that the ballot does not note which candidates are incumbents. Asked the polling patrol he said "they decided not to". Wonder why they decided this year not to bring attention to the incumbents??? Guess in a year where we are fed up with politics as usual and it is apparent we are not going to take this anymore they are trying to hide themselves. I am making a cheat sheet to carry in with me -

Maybe they figuredif you were that much into politics and that fed up with the incumbents you'd already know who was in office.....

The "curling is dumb" comment was pretty funny! I mean, like other sports *aren't* dumb? Ha! Sports are sports, man, get over it. Curling, football, darts, basketball, whatever. They are what they are.

9:48 and other drones, study the candidates, know what they've said and better what they've done - regardless of party affiliation. Maybe then you can offer an informed vote. What a concept!

Anonymous said...

Or better yet, search the candidates name on the blog and see who was talked about the most
