Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm declaring today's Update the worst in the history of ever. When your second item is how to submit "your organization's meeting times and dates," you know it's a bad sign.
  • Do not look at this book-in photo of an adult female alleged to have done bad things with an underage male.
  • The Texas Rangers are awful and now the League has taken over control of the team due to the sale of the team being held up by creditors. What a mess.
  • And I'm warming up my "I told you so" about the Dallas Mavericks.
  • Odd: Lawyers agreed in Fort Worth yesterday to use an 11 person jury in a capital murder trial instead of 12. I'm not sure I understand that. From a defense standpoint, that just seems to be one less person that the State has to convince beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Got the family truckster out of the shop. Power. Down.
  • And when I start car shopping online, I can feel a mid-life crisis coming on.
  • Somehow I missed financial advisor Stuart Varney being transformed into a fear mongering talking head for Fox News.
  • Mark Cuban is whining about the NFL Draft going up against the NBA playoffs on TV over the next three days. Hey, when the draft of one sport can compete with the playoffs of another sport, the latter sport is in big trouble.
  • There were appellate arguments in Dallas yesterday regarding the legality of granting a gay divorce in Texas. All the news reports end with words like "the court did not immediately make a decision." Hey, it's an appellate court. They never make a decision right after oral arguments.
  • College football: There's no question that the Big Ten is about to create a tidal wave when it announces that it will expand and who they are taking within three months. I don't know if the Big 12 will survive the ultimate fallout. This is gonna be big.
  • My office remembered Administrative Professionals Day yesterday. We forgot about it last year for the first time ever.

Why does the new $100 bill have what appears to be a pot-o-gold at the end of a golden rainbow. Idiocracy indeed.

And I will take all future warnings to "not look" at linked photos quite seriously. I have to go throw up now.

You know, Barry, you can stuff your "I told you so"s about the Mavericks. What is your complaint? That they get eliminated in the first or second round of the playoffs every year? That in the last 10 years they've only made the Championship round once, and then lost?

Wow, I wish the Cowboys could claim that much accomplishment.

Anyone have an idea when Telecommunications Technicians Day is?

Re book-in photo--that would be sexual assault regardless of the age of the male!

Re your mid-life crisis--time to get a two-door convertible Mercedes/BMW/Audi, etc.! (And wear a gold chain around your neck) :)

'Odd: LAWYERS (a)GREED in Fort Worth'

Why does that look natural?

Your comment about the Update made me think of how I hate the new Messenger layout with the new front page format on the All Around Wise. Everytime I get it in the mail, I again think how irritating it is. Why did they change it....and for the worse???

Well, you did warn us. Yikes! Looks like a character from an old SNL skit
"I'm Carol!" or maybe even "Paaaat"
I had to go back and stare at today's pic for a while to cleanse my mental palate, and dirty up my...uh, never mind!

Maybe Cuban should worry more about winning in the playoffs, and not so much about TV ratings?

To Jack Daniels...
As desperate as you are for me to be a woman with whom you would have a chance of shagging, I am doubly pleased to inform you, the book-in photo is NOT me..

Oh MZfit you take things to serious. Good one Jack.

Mike said...

Barry, your "don't look at this" pic wasn't as bad as the ones Sili comes up with, but it's getting pretty close! I think I just threw up a little.

Jack Daniels said...

I'm sorry, Mzchief. My mistake. But, that photo did look a lot like the one Jarhead showed around claiming it was you.

I'm just sayin.
