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

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts



  • I'll give credit to the Denton County lady who was kidnapped last week and driven to New Mexico. She's so thankful to be alive that she doesn't have the slightest desire to give a TV interview. 
  • I was disappointed with the MNF game in Minnesota last night. It was cold but with very little snow.
  • The only thing more annoying than Brett Favre being a Drama Queen (he went from "out" to "starting" last night -- something that has happened only 20 of 4,633 times since 2001) is Jon Gruden's fawning over him. Sheesh, get a room. 
  • I've got a timer on my Christmas lights which may be the greatest invention in the history or ever. 
  • I've said for years that picking out one single day to argue "for" or "against" global warming is dumb. (Global warming concerns an increase in the average temperature by 1 degree for every hundred years.)  So yesterday the Limbaugh followers around here were suggesting Al Gore flip the coin at the Minnesota game last night since it was being played in single digit temperatures. And they did so as North Texas set a temperature record for December 20th. Idiocracy.
  • The Baylor women played in front of 10,000 in Waco last week, but the box score from their game at Clemson last night shows attendance of 335. I presume school is out at Clemson. Edit: Ooops. The game was played somewhere in the Bahamas (for some crazy reason.)
  • TCU's baseball team leads off at #1 in the nation according to the "Collegiate Baseball's" preseason poll. (Whoever they are.) 
  • I woke Mrs. LL up for a hair appointment this morning only to be informed that it is scheduled for this afternoon. And then she laughed. 
  • Funny Sarah Palin interview, due to what is in the background, about killing animals.
  • I've seen pics this morning of the lunar eclipse. Meh. 
  • I never have a fun or pleasant dream, and I dream every night. It's always some crisis that typically deals with running late. Seriously, the number of times I've woken up and thought, "Thank goodness it was only a dream" is staggering. 
  • Remember to gather the family around the TV tonight for an important Christmas tradition: It's the Beef 'O' Brady's Bowl
  • Every news story about airport temporary shut down has to include an interview with one passenger who is very angry followed by another interview with someone who has a "what are you going to do?" attitude. (But did you see that Colorado is expected to get eight feet of snow over the next couple of days.)
  • I looked at that University of Minnesota webcam (below) several times yesterday. I don't know why I think stuff like that is so cool. 
  • Weird: Fox 4 ran a big story last night of a missing 13 year old girl and then she shows up this morning on her family's doorstep.

Hey don't be TOO quick to criticize Palin for her hunting statement--her family may have EATEN that bear after they shot it!! :)

I think all sports commentators should tell Favre: "Brett, we're sticking a collective fork in you because you're done, pal. Please retire - you're old and banged up, and it's not gonna get any easier. Thanks for all those great years, but everybody's gotta hang it up at some point. Enjoy your retirement and lifetime supply of Wranglers."
I would have been disappointed in last night's game too, except for watching Devin Hester break that record for return TDs

Maybe my memory is faulty, but I don't recall ever hearing of Beef O'Brady's, or their sponsorship of a bowl game, until this year. I have no idea what that product is. I'm sure they'll bombard us with whatever it is during the game tonight.
Bowl games are such big business nowadays that eventually you'll see them sponsoring other bowl games: "The Jersey Shore/Facebook Bowl presented by the Rose Bowl"

That's not a bear skin rug on Palin's floor, thats Oprah's coat she sheds every year.

Nothing wrong with hunting and using the parts for food, rugs, etc. You liberal weenies just don't get it and wouldn't have made it a day with our ancestors. Go Palin, 2012

if they're getting that kind of snow in Colorado, wish I were there instead of sunny Texas...it's just not Christmasy.

Emily Wicks-- If you lay down with dogs, you get fleas. Typical naggers, but I'm sure society "forced" them to be the way they are. Get a rope...

9:23 You are a sad, sad, little person. I think you missed the whole point. She is just another lying fake. All she had to say was "There is nothing wrong with killing animals for meat or any other use (rugs, coats etc.)." ...and yes I am a "Liberal Winnie", we have a mounted deer head in my den and more guns than hair! I do also believe that certain types of guns should be controlled.

If they do away with ALL gun control I would really enjoy stopping by your house with my shoulder mounted stinger missile launcher to do some “hunting”.

As half of Europe is up to their ass in snow, California is getting pounded by snow and even snowing in Australia where it is now summertime. Flip the coin for Skippy, Al.

Nothing says Christmas or Winter Solstice or Kwanzaa better than Denise Milani in a Santa cap. Well played, Barry, well played.

Back when I was buried at end on the 1978 and 1979 Glenwood Springs Demons depth chart, it was my dream to start in the Beef O' Brady Bowl. Now, you come along to mock that dream. Thanks a lot, BG. I am depressed.

Happy effin' Winter Solstice.

9:23, you deserve Sarah Palin. And since you don't like it here, why don't you move to Alaska where she is. We wouldn't miss you!

9:23 Many of us wish you were in Colorado too. Why don't you go enjoy that "Christmassy" winter crap in Colorado.

Texas Winter rules! Don't let the door hit you where the good Lord split yah. Transplant Trash.

Arthur if you would have gotten off your ass and hit someone, I would have played you in some games. Still a whining whimp, huh?

Barry:

Have you ever been told that you snore or, perhaps, quit breathing, when you're asleep? It could be sleep apnea. I have had it for a long time, and I have had a lot of bad dreams in the past. I sort of thought it was my body telling my subconscious I was in distress.
Ask Ms. LL about her opinion of your sleep patterns!

Welcome to the 80's.....you're a couple of decades behind on your basketball.... during Thanksgiving and Christmas breaks, basketball tournaments are in high gear.

Baylor women are playing in a basketball tournament in the Bahamas. FYI... the Baylor mens team is in Hawaii for a tournament.

Love Palin. Love how she just drives the liberals nuts.

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

11:26am, if you think just a wee bit ahead to elections that are coming up... you will see that Palin drives A LOT of us conservatives crazy too.

+1 on Christmas light timers.

+1 on the daily Pic.

+1 on Brett Farververerrrr. Doesn't he have some small market media chick in the midwest he needs to hit on?

1126 - Ditto.

11:26 I'm right there with ya...she rocks and it makes them crazy nervous!

And yes, I'd prefer Alaska and Colorado to Texas weather ANY DAY, and I'd already be there if my job didn't keep me here, thank you very much. And I wouldn't miss you red necks one single bit.

Arthur said...

Coach Bo, I always knew you were an illiterate fool because you always confused hitting with the ability to actually play the game of football. Otherwise, you wouldn't have recommended the Cowboys draft Roy Williams instead of Quentin Jammer. Is that your retirement gig as Jerry Jones' personnel director didn't quite work out?

Palin has my vote in 2012, too. No doubt about it. I like everything I see and hear about her though the biased media sure tries hard to make her look bad. They're running scared.

I happen to have two bear skin rugs and I enjoy them. I have eaten bear meat and its not bad if one prepares it first;hang it like beef in a controlled temperature or keep in an ice slush for a week.Bears eat a lot more grass than meat also.If you want a rug like Palins be prepared to drop over twelve thousand from your door to the fireplace.

To 11:26,11:48,12:12,1:06 and 3:14.........I'm somewhat of a liberal and I'm not nervous about Ms. Palin nor is she driving me nuts. In fact, she would be the best gift the Dems could get if she were to become the 2012 Republican presidential nominee. Just let her keep on spouting drivel.

I noticed in the news this week that the recededing ice in the pole had left some tools exposed that have been dated to 650 years ago ;only 130 years older than this country.Wonder what BIG AL would explain that,coal fired power plants I guess.

That girl would would be too big to bruise and batter.

918 - Exactly what "drivel" do you perceive Sarah Palin spouting? Your answer (or lack of one) could determine whether you're rational or just another Liberal pretending not to be nuts whenever her name is mentioned.

Submarines surfaced at the North Pole in 1958. Was that global warming? Google this to see a photo. What would the news media say today if that happened?

Anarctic ice has been expanding since 1960. 90% of the earth's ice is in the Anarctic.

England is in the process of having their coldest December since 1898. That will be added to the oddity of the entire British Isles being covered in snow last winter.

Based on mean sea levels marked in rock by English Sea captains in the 1840's the oceans have risen only a few centimeters since then. Most of the increase is due to silt entering from rivers or being blown in, erosion of beaches, and undersea volcanoes. Even the flat plains in the watershed of the Mississippi are losing a foot of soil to erosion every 7,000 years. Listen to Bob Dylan sing "how many years can a mountain exist before it is washed to the sea, the answer is blowing in the wind".

And one of my son's college professors is a dumb ass for saying that much of the snow cover on Mount Kilimanjaro has melted in recent years. Historic photos show that most of the snow on that famous peak was gone by the 1950's and it did not melt. Sublimation removed the ice and snow. It never got above freezing there.

Stop the junk science of Al Gore.

wordie, I guess we have an answer. 9:18 has nothing to back his/her "drivel" comment as we suspected. If anyone spouts drivel it's bammy.

wordkyle said...

932 - Whatever her deficiencies, Sarah Palin has one attribute I prize highly -- the ability to hit a nerve in Liberals without even trying. They jump on board the crazy train whenever they talk about her.

Propagandist said...

11:24 - You're awesome. Keep beating the misinformed masses with facts and maybe, one day, they'll get it and realize they've been played by all the junk scientists with an agenda.
