Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts

  • California wannabe governor Meg Whitman has spent $120 million of her own money to try and obtain the job. (Insane.)  So she's probably not happy that her spokesman who, in a tweet to promote her campaign last night, included a link to a cross dressing Asian. (You know, I've always been worried I'm going to do that some day.)
  • Gov. Perry trying to link opponent Bill White to President Obama (by using side by side photos in his commercials) should offend you, but it probably won't.
  • I woke up at 4:00 a.m. because of a puppy who, for the first time, decided to play in the middle of the night. I took her outside shortly thereafter for a (ugh) "t t potty" session which led to nothing. Then I couldn't go back to sleep.
  • That made me think of what having an infant would be like. 
  • Might I take off early just to watch the Rangers? Yep, I might. This is sports history (and I consider myself a scholar so it's academic research.)
  • I'm going to Arkansas for a wedding this weekend that Mrs. LL wants me to attend (but I don't actually have to attend the wedding -- just have to endure the journey there.). We are staying with her grandparents who allegedly have acres and acres of land, a heated pool, a wifi connecton, a satellite dish and me the freedom to wander at will. I think I'm looking forward to it. I wonder if the trees are turning?
  • Weatherford cops fired at a car yesterday involved in an undercover drug deal at a fast food restaurant. I'm sure that flying bullets in  a crowded parking lot was worth that penny ante drug arrest.
  • My flat screen in the living room that I bought seven years ago (I was an early adopter and paid the price for it), is going out. The replacement will be much cheaper.
  • Other than the JP #3, is there any other legitimate political race that's interesting for Wise County voters? 
  • An anti-DWI ad that even I think is effective.
  • A Jessica Lowndes "Hey, Now."  What's up with all these new 90201 chicks?
  • I won't believe the Rangers are going to the World Series until that last out occurs. On my TIVO, coincidentally, is the ESPN 30 for 30 documentary, Four Days in October, about how the Red Sox came back to win four in a row against the Yankees after being down in the 9th inning of Game 3 of the 2004 ALCS.
  • And did you see the TV camera which had its lens shattered by the broken bat last night?
