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

Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • There were reports yesterday that Tiger Woods would pay $750 million in his divorce settlement. I would willing be inflicted with a lot of pain for that amount. (But I question the $750 million figure.)
  • Tarrant County is having a "No Refusal Weekend" over the holiday weekend. One radio host said this morning that it's commonly referred to as "Vampire Weekend." I've never heard that, but kind of like it.
  • Edit: Wise County is having a Vampire Weekend as well.
  • I got my garbage disposal in. So far, so good. (But finding "plumber's putty" in the huge Home Depot took some searching.)
  • Ranger Vladimir Guerrero is a beast. I heard the batting coach say his only responsibility as for as Guerrero is concerned is to "make sure he doesn't miss his turn at bat."
  • As usual, that was a lot of coverage of a hurricane that turned out to be a big bag of nothing.
  • 41 of 110 Supreme Court justices had no prior judicial experience before getting the gig.
  • Didn't you cringe when you saw the funeral announcement for the two month old in the Update?
  • The Dallas Police Chief's son had PCP in his system when he killed the Lancaster cop? PCP? I've been doing criminal law for 20 years and I've never prosecuted nor defended a PCP case.
  • I've never seen any of the Twilight movies but I've heard the only way to see it is on opening weekend when the theater is full of crazy moms.
  • Mike Snider was on WBAP this morning discussing this evening's final broadcast on KXAS Channel 5. Man, get ready for a meltdown between Jane and him -- I can sense it coming.
  • But he said one of the biggest stories he covered wast the Delta crash at DFW. He said he grabbed his cell phone which was "as big as a brick" and started running. But that crash was in 1985 -- did they even have big phones back then?

Hummmmm....what are the chances that "Vampire Weekend" will be uttered by BG in a future episode of Defending the Drunk Driver in a court house near you? I'm just saying.

BG: Congrats on Mrs Liberally Lean. Very nice young lady, pretty too.

I'm gonna go out on a limb here and guess that you can find plumbers putty in the...plumbing section? at the hardware store. Are you planning to seal up your plumber's crack with that?

..."make sure he doesn't miss his turn at bat."
Has that been a problem for this team? Guys jumping up there out of turn? I would think that the biggest problem with Vlad is resisting the urge to not disguise him as somebody else, so that he can bat more often. Did you see him crush that salami last night? But what the quote probably refers to is "Don't fix it if it aint broke."

You're married now, right? You can't be trolling the movie theaters for crazy mom fluff

I don't know about cell phones, but I worked for a guy in 1980 who had a mobile phone in his vehicle

"Do you want some of this?"

PCP? Really? Didn't know that was still around--kind of an old school drug, right?

Pulled the schedule for the AMC Grand in Dallas for a friend yesterday and the only movie they were showing on all 24 screens--Twilight!

For those watching all they own and have worked for washing down a flooded river, doubt the hurricane is a big bag of nothing. Already lots of dead people...who apparently mean nothing.

People test positive for PCP when they are smoking "wet." Wet is marijuana joints dipped in embalming fluid, or formadelhyde. It shows up as PCP on a Urine Drug Screen. Not really that uncommon, it's been on the rise for a couple of years.

Not sure why you'd be surprised at judges with no experience when "we" elected a president with no experience in leading ANYTHING, either!

If a Supreme Court nominee doesn't have judicial experience, how do you qualify them? Judgment? Kagan is backing away from opinion pieces she's written previously. Do you assess her judgment then, or now? She restricted military recruitment at Harvard Law School while she was dean because of "don't ask, don't tell," but now claims her actions were relatively unimportant. What position do you consider hers? It doesn't matter, because Democrats control the process, and her nomination accomplishes their political goals.

As has happened too often in recent years, the position will go to a politically-connected Ivy Leaguer, qualifications be damned.

People scare me, it is amazing what lengths some will go to poison themselves. How many times a day do we share the road or walk past someone in a store, at work, etc. that is looped out of their gourd. Tickin' freakin' timebombs ima tellin ya!

1983: The world's first commercial handheld cellular phone, the Motorola DynaTAC phone, received approval from the U.S. Federal Communications Commission on September 21, 1983. The 28-ounce phone became available to consumers in 1984.

Geeeze! What kind of person sits around and thinks, "hey, let's dunk these joints in embalming fluid and see what happenes when we drag that!" ????????
Scariest thing is, those people obviously vote too. Hence: Obama!

Anonymous said...

So if you were like a cannibal or somethin and smoke some old dead guys joint,you'll test positive for PCP?

So do they steal the embalming fluid from the funeral home or what?

The $750 Million figure that is being thrown around by the media is total bull. First, I don't think he has that much money TOTAL at this point in his career after taxes, etc. Second, I would bet my right testicle that he had a pre-nup that limited how much she would get...so why on earth would he pay her so much more? So she wouldn't write a book? Get real - the whole world knows all the story already. How could she possibly make it worse? Plus, she is getting the kids! Third, I am sure all of the details of any agreement are very, very confidential and if it were to be leaked then it would null the deal.

Oh, one more point. I am betting Tiger didn't sleep with his wife 750 times during their whole relationship. (He was too busy with other chicks, for one thing) So, I think he would hire a hit man to take her out before willing to fork over $1,000,000 + for each time he slept with her.

Just sayin'

Speaking of judges with no required prior judicial experience:

Did you know that in Canon Law there is no requirement that the new Pope be a priest or Roman Catholic? Blew my mind. Pope Jimmy Swaggart has a ring to it.

Giving Elin $750 million will be well worth it if she keeps her mouth shut in the future and Tiger is able to get back his pre-scandal marketing moxie.

I just learned that Decatur ISD will be a Recognized District and every campus will be Recognized or Exemplary. This information was announced at the last board meeting.

I stand impressed!

Anonymous said...

We can thank Mr. Howard for that!

Why was the DISD information not covered by the messenger?

Is this inaccurate or crappy reporting?

Too bad Decatur ISD was blown up and key leaders are leaving. Someone was "Sleeping at the Wheel" to let this happen!
