Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • I dreamed I killed the Family Cat (in the most violent of ways) and this morning, for the first time, he didn't come running when I came down the stairs. He finally appeared about twenty minutes later much to my relief.
  • Had dog/cat/wife chaos yesterday morning. I'm still not sure exactly what happened, but I've never heard so much barking, screeching, running, yelling and crashing in all my life. I was scared to look down there. 
  • Tarrant County has a guy that has been on death row for over 20 years. You really don't see that much any more. 
  • Rick Perry was on Fox & Friends this morning pimping his new book. Get that man off my TV! Edit: He was on The Today Show, too.
  • This girl soooo got kicked out of Cowboys Stadium. 
  • I get amused by people who have no idea how they are uniformly perceived by others. 
  • Guy dresses as Breathalyzer for Halloween and then gets busted for DWI.
  • The new Speaker of the House was saying yesterday that his first priority is to "repeal Obamacare." Uh, you might want to check with the Democratic controlled Senate and that veto powered President first. More pandering. 
  • More than 20 tons of pot was seized and an underground tunnel discovered near San Diego. That's not a big deal. A guy on WBAP this morning actually said, "Once we beat that drug issue, we won't have problems like that."
  • Finally tally for straight ticket voting in Wise County: 57%.  I. Am. Speechless.
  • My job is 100% the product of big government. But with the exception of the rare court appointment, it never pays me anything. Considering all of the products and services it buys, I bet it's responsible for a mind boggling number of private sector jobs. 
  • One of the most screwed up bureaucracies is DPS' driver's license division. Just try calling Austin to get a straight answer. 
  • I listen to podcasts when I jog and rarely listen to music. 
  • Funny reference about Jerry Jones being the saddest person that the Rangers lost: "Now the DFW crowd looks over its shoulder at the Cowboys as they pick up their pitchforks and torches."
