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

Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm not going to beat you down with college football conference realignment talk, but what is going on is insane. I'll remember this week forever.
  • Jury duty: I have to go back for the actual jury selection process this morning. And the judge is someone who started work in the Tarrant County DA's office on the very same day as I did 20 years ago.
  • In the central jury room yesterday, they played a generic "jury service is good" film before everything got started that included movie clips. But I almost screamed when the first clip was of a jury foreman saying, "We find the defendant incredibly guilty." Way to taint the group.
  • My fellow potential jurors laughed at a My Cousin Vinny clip where the judge asked, "Mr. Gambini, are you on drugs?"
  • The panel did not laugh at a Jim Carrey movie clip where he played a lawyer and objected to his own question. For the moment, my faith in humanity was restored.
  • I tried to work out with a Billy Blanks Taebo DVD last night for the first time. I was flopping around like a fish.
  • Yeah, I'm probably going to abandon The Spin. I'm thinking about just posting Messenger headlines on here every Sunday and letting you guys write it for me.
  • I jogged this morning and came upon my normal park but it had eight industrial sprinklers going. After avoiding the first two, and realizing no one was around, I did a 180 and then ran through all of them. It was one of those "your life is about to change" kind of moments.
  • Flashback I heard: "Ultra Sheen and Ultra Sheen cosmetics."

I find it amazing that your life was changed by a phone and that something involving college football would be so important to you. Just amazing.

8:24 - you wouldn't like it if you were a potential juror on a DWI case. They can question jurors about whether they drink or not. I think this kind of thing could be handled in written form as part of the filling out of the jury card.

Yes please, Post Thursday's gal Every Friday, Or more, it won't hurt my feelings...

i think its amazing the barry will think about anything except politics when the dem are gettin there asses handed to them.

Anonymous said...

y'know, instead of begging the guy to post the same pic/girl over and over, why don't you just save it? That way, you could look at it any time you felt "the need"
The one he picked for today is perfectly acceptable

"your life is about to change" - running through sprinklers?! Man it must be nice living your life like it's a John Hughes movie

"Yeah...you blend!"

Too bad Barry can't block the bitter old woman demographic from tainting his blog.

I'd show her my new Banjo and she'd be all mine.

I'm about to do something unthinkable -- defend a Liberal, namely our host.

The name of this blog is Liberally Lean. He has the option of discussing whatever he chooses. He will naturally choose topics that are pleasant to him in some way. The current climate for Democrats is relatively unpleasant, so he decides not to discuss it. His choice.

The reason I'm defending BG is because unlike most Liberals, he allows a real debate (mostly regardless of the quality or level.) He allows comments from someone like me, even if he opposes my viewpoint. That shows an integrity and generosity of spirit that needs to be acknowledged. The time will come back around when he sees fit to make some outlandish Liberal claim which I will do my best to demolish. To every thing there is a season. Dem-bashing funtime will return eventually.

To wordkyle...
Excellent point about Liberally Lean being Barry's Blog. The problem with the seasons of Dem-bashing and Repub-bashing is that the taxpayers are the ones who get the stuffing beat out of them, thus I do not look forward to either season.

I wish taxpayers would figure out, it is US against the politicians and not Dems against Repubs.

People always need to keep in mind:
"Government big enough to supply everything you need is big enough to take everything you have."

Anonymous said...

Finally you found a naturally attractive girl to post!
We know they are hard to come by these days so I want to thank you for your effort.

wordkyle said...

mzchief - Of course you're right about government's overbearing nature. As I've stated before, the Republican party is (relatively) closer to doing something about that than the Democrats. Plus the Democrats are such plump targets, it's hard to resist smacking them around.

Anonymous said...

wordkyle, re: "democrats are such plump targets,"....You calling someone a fatty? Please don't get that started again.

wordkyle said...

144 - Good point. When I wrote that I envisioned them as blood-engorged ticks. Use whatever metaphor works for you.

i wonder what colleg team you will refer to the "evil empire" after the big 12 breaks up. as a baylor fan, you'll have no reason to be a texas hata.

Anonymous said...

A little different take on the possible Big 12 break-up:
Why don't we think outside the box? Instead of playing follow the leader, why don't we create a conference unlike any that has come before? Add universities/colleges from Mazatlan, Tampico, Cozumel, & Oaxaca. Man, now that would be a football road-trip. Mescal & cheap Mexican silver. Plus the added thrill of being possibly shot by drug gangs or thrown into a Mexican prison by corrupt cops. Can you imagine the entire Baylor Bear football squad jailed for several days in Oaxaca when their bus failed a "safety inspection"? The stories write themselves.

I HATE jury duty. Give me a root canal over sitting through that stuff. My aunt was a potential jury member for a rape trial in Dallas. She was not selected after stating, "He looks like a rapist to me."
