Random Wednesday Morning Thoughts



  • Man, we're are about to have one strange 24 hour weather period. 83 degrees today followed by a high in the 40s tomorrow.
  • I've already seen the obligatory news guy broadcasting from DFW Airport because of the mislabeled "busiest travel day of the year."
  • And in two days I'll see the obligatory news guy broadcasting from a local mall because of the mislabeled "busiest shopping day of the year."
  • Had three Seventh Graders in the house for a sleepover last night. Last time I checked they were dressing up and going from room to room shooting scenes for "their new movie."
  • The "angels of justice" are being removed from one Tarrant County courthouse so they can be moved to a new one. I've practiced law for almost 25 years and not once have I have ever heard about those figures. (Maybe because they seem to rarely make a meaningful appearance in real life.)
  • I'll sit down to watch Auburn v. Alabama on Friday with more anticipation than I will for any NFL game. (And the same can be said about UT/A&M and OU/OSU).
  • Funny local fantasy football bit for those that play: Our buddy Thomas up at the courthouse lost this week by less than one point. And get this: His kicker came in with 0: No extra points and no field goals.
  • Motorcycle death of Springtown woman in Palo Pinto County.
  • I ran to the grocery store last night to pick up junk for the house full of girls (chicken wings and pizza? Really?)  Did you know lots of people go to the grocery store before Thanksgiving? Beat. Down.
  • Strangest image ever captured in Germany by Google Streetview. That'll be me going crazy because of my cat before all is said and done. 
  • Man, there are some some beautiful Fall trees out there right now. 
  • Josh Hamilton, who won American League MVP yesterday, sounds like his brain is fried from all those drug years.
  • If I were flying today, I'd hope everyone took part in the "opt out" protest so I could speed right through the full body scan.  How this has become so newsworthy is beyond me. 
  • During my jog yesterday, I saw the cutest little girl on a small bridge holding the cutest little fishing pole. She was being watched over by grandma who was holding a cigarette and a Coors light. 
  • Baylor's female basketball player Britney Griner is a beast. Last night, barely into her sophomore year, she set the school's career  block record while scoring 27 points (and she only played one half). And while waiting on Mrs. LL in the doctor's office yesterday, I saw where Sports Illustrated picked the Lady Bears to win the whole thing. I'll take small joys where I can get them. 
  • My continued personal war against Mike Huckabee continues. He just ended his radio show with the following after announcing that the date for the Royal Wedding at Westminster Abby had been set: "And if you wonder how they could have booked such a fabulous location on such short notice, well, [insert pause] I hear they know somebody." Then he signed off like he just fired off the zinger of the century.
  • Edit: Oh, yeah - "And Another."

On December 21 2012 strange weather will only be the tip of the iceberg and we are the Titanic getting closer every day.

Looks like a mother/daughter duo in that picture!

The comment right before you went by on your jog: "Hey Gran, hold my brewski and smoke. I think I got a bite."

Going to the store the week before Thanksgiving is a total whipping. But the beer and cheetos don't deliver themselves to your trailer house, so what are ya gonna do?

Your "Strangest image ever captured in Germany" can't possibly be the strangest. It's Germany!
How much trunk space is there in a 300, anyway? Will the cat be laid out on the driveway like that dog is?

The Seattle paper's headline of "Why can't we handle snow?" reminds me of when it snows here. Folks from way up north around, say...Amarillo, get tickled at us because everybody starts freaking out. Hey!, if Christmas lasted for three months, little kids wouldn't get that excited about it on a daily basis. But once a year, it's a big deal. What really irritates me is when an ice storm hits, and Yankees go "You guys don't know how to drive in winter weather." It's ice! Unless you have studded tires or chains, nobody can navigate on ice

Your rant against Huckabee seems misplaced. Calling him out for nothing more than lame jokes is, well...lame

Happy Thanksgiving all!

Gee. I wonder how losing your freedom so fast is newsworthy.

Why aren't the liberal lawyers protesting that these TSA people need search warrants? Really? They can reach inside pockets and pull out and look at papers?

WTF!

Why does it matter, the Mayans' math skills were lacking, the date is off by 50 years...it should be 12/21/2062!

So how does Josh Hamilton's brain sound fried, but his physical skills are as good as anyone in the world?

Love the mother / daughter combo... older women are more fun and experienced.... younger are more fun to look at.

Might want to put the brakes on that Baylor National Championship.... unfortunately

Baylor's starting point guard quit before the season started and the sophomore who stepped in just blew out the old ACL.

But with Brittany... she's a beast... she can carry this thing.

The pat down by TSA employees are useless and shows a complete lack of brain power on the part of the country's leadership. The only way for them to stop smuggling of plastic explosives is to probe body cavities. I guess there would be a line of fags applying for that position and a huge backlog of passengers at the San Francisco Airport. Seriously, body cavities are where dope is smuggled. Pat downs are Obama stupid. Here is an example of dope getting past guards at a Flordia jail, even with a strip search:

I'll take the body scan, or the pat down without complaint. I fly frequently and want to continue to do so. In a way, Osama has won a moral victory, (he is costing us an arm and a leg) but any of you want to lose a loved re Lockerbee.

It isn't waterboarding for God's sake.

I have had sex with most of my teachers. Why does everybody get so worked up about it ? I guess they like telling on them because they didn't have the gonads to hook up with their teachers.

3:18, All they are doing is putting on a dog and pony show. Any airline employee can sneak any drug, weapon, or whatever else they want in, TSA included. Ever heard of American Airlines in Miami? You would be suprised how many DFW employees got caught after so many times.
