Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I got sick again this weekend. One second I'm fine and then the next I can't hardly walk. And then it does away within a day. Weird.
  • Had an ultimate movie fail this weekend: Bought tickets to Date Night and then walked in and couldn't find two seats even remotely close together. But it was our fault for getting there so late.
  • Now the family truckster is making a very weird sound. It's on its last legs.
  • Last night a fight breaks out at the XTC Strip Club at Regal Row and I-35 in Dallas. Two guys then get into a taxi and leave only to get hit by gunfire from a car that followed them. One of them then removes the taxi cab driver, who was also hit, from the cab and they drive to the hospital. The cab driver then dies. And this all started about 5:00 a.m. Good grief.
  • I feel bad for the NASCAR fans that camped out all weekend without seeing a single race. I'm sure they made the best of it, but that had to be a beating. Mud ain't good.
  • And traffic sure seems like it would be a hassle today for Northwest High School.
  • Monday morning pick me up: USC Song Girls go swimming.
  • Before I got sick, I had lunch at the relatively new Pour House in Fort Worth. Not bad. Quick service. And there was a live acoustic performance going on by two gals in the middle of the afternoon who were really good.
  • You see brawls after fights in Fake Wrestling but one occurred on Saturday night on CBS after an MMA fight.
  • I wonder if the Lake Bridgeport "watershed" got a bunch of rain this weekend? I noticed Jacksboro got over 6".
  • There's a Star Telegram story referencing the emerging "restaurant row" in Roanoke.
  • I'm still recovering.

Our Nascar group tried to make the best of it, but it was pretty rough. The mud and rain plus no race just sucked. Now everyone is back at work while they race. Ultimate fail.

If I knew how to email you, I would. I know you listen to the Ticket and that you check out Gordon's blog, but with the current "turmoil" among DISD's school board, I thought the school board campaign video from Conway was pretty funny and pertinent. I think I'd like to see Quanz or Howard come up with a video like this! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lMRWNNBYAc8

Maybe you and Kat need to quarantine each other for a while. You both sure are sick all the time.

May have been the food from that restaurant that made you sick.

Do the racing folks get refunds if they had tickets to the rainouts and can't make it today?

Go Quanz & Howard!

NASCAR's time at TMS is over. Jerry is gonna buy that dump because those guys don't know how to make money with the facility they have. Jerry is gonna dome the place and turn it into the world's largest snow globe, so he can hold dogsled races. The Inuit demographic in this market is greatly underserved. Plus, he's seen how popular that Alaska political lady is, and he figures to ride the wave.
Jerry has developed the technology to turn the whole place upside down (snow globe, remember?) with the crowd strapped into their seats. It'll be like a ride at Six Flags
They'll secretly truck in some snow, a la Smokey and the Bandit. Wade has already called dibs on the part of Sheriff Buford T. Justice "cuz he gets to cuss a lot the way daddy used to. You know, 'I'm gon' git that sumb*tch, if it's the last thing I do!' kinda thing. I bet the concession stand is gonna have lots of great ethnic food, like eskimo pie, baked Alaska, Klondike bars..."

Never got why anyone would enjoy sitting and watching cars go round and round the same circle....kinda a waste of time if you ask me, which you didn't, of course.

Traffic was horrible today. I hate TMS. Yes, I drive from Wise County to Grapevine every day for work.

Yes, traffic leaving Northwest High School was a total freaking nightmare. Whoever thought the timing of those races was a good idea is now officially on my list.
