Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • There was an obituary for a 16 year old boy from Bridgeport yesterday and today in the Update. Any one know what happened?
  • The 2nd Grader in The House To Me: "You know the best thing about Christmas? All these presents are free!"
  • I'm always suspicious that gas shooting up to $3.00 and beyond is just the oil companies screwing us for a few months before they come down again.
  • The Bridgeport Index put the story of the death of Josh Wood on the front page. I don't think it was in the Messenger other than by an obituary.
  • My cold/sinuses/whatever have bugged me for a week. It's just enough to be a major irritation.
  • Remember Adam James - the player on Texas Tech whose daddy, Craig, got Mike Leach fired? Well, he stayed on the team and contributed to the 2010 season by catching 2 passes for 26 yards and 0 touchdowns.
  • And I continue to think Leach may not be hireable. Not because he's not a great coach, but because every school is scared he'll sue them if things go downhill.  As someone said, "He doesn't have a coaching problem, he has a Human Resources problem."
  • Saw most of Couples Retreat the other day.  Formalistic and forced.
  • I'm staying home on New Year's Eve and have no problem with that.
  • Finally finished up the documentary about SMU Football: Pony Excess. Fantastic. And I had forgotten how involved (and dirty) former Gov. Bill Clements was. (Speaking of Clements, check out the article in this month's Texas Monthly, p. 66 about the murder of Clements' son who was found buried on the property of a crazy neighbor this year.)
  • Jarhead mentioned how he went to a contemporary Christmas church service last weekend and astutely pointed out that he saw a lot of "trendy young people with $200 jeans and leather jackets."  Also during this Christmas season, eight homeless people died in an abandoned building last night in New Orleans due to a fire.
  • Air Force started its bowl game last night in Shreveport by releasing a trained falcon to fly across the stadium to its handler. It decided to go downtown instead and flew out of the stadium
  • Did Miles Austin really trade jerseys with Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald on the field after last Saturday's game? Really? I've said for the last 10 years: I quit caring about the NFL when it dawned on me I cared more than the players did.

According to Jones Family Funeral Home obituary, Josh Houston was from Bridgeport. It suggested donations to MDA. His picture indicates to me that he probably had muscular dystraphy (spelling ?).

All filthy vial trash to the last one.

If you read the blog from last night, you wouldn't have to ask about the 16 yr old boy. Geesh!

girls today look like "hoes", trashy trashy trashy

I always stay home on New Years Eve, or have the past 8 yrs or so. It's nice to be getting older and not expected to go somewhere all the time.

9:00 If you read the blog last night, it clearly stated he had MD. For you idiots out there, that means muscular dystrophy.

What's your point about the jeans and the homeless folk? The people with expensive jeans probably actually work for a living and can afford to buy nice things. So????

One or two of those girls might fit in a small glass jar as a means of disposal, but you generalization of thaem all as such is a little vile in and of itself

Houston child had MD. God needed another angel on Christmas Eve and took him home.

Bubear, Leach is in serious talks with the U. of Maryland. They fired their head coach and are thinking about bringing Leach in.

Maryland is that funny shaped state under Pennsylvania. The Mason-Dixon line is the border those 2 states share.

Check with your sister in law about Josh Houston. She'll know his story as well as anyone.

The Texas Tech administration anticipated firing Leach a year before the Adam James incident. Leach claimed in court documents that Tech officials schemed to receive the benefit of his performance without compensating him. (Leach was fired one day before he was to be paid an $800,000 bonus.) The circumstances certainly support his argument.

Leach has his share of problems, but I think unless they plan to screw him out of a million dollars, other universities don't have to worry about a lawsuit.

I am fine with everyone knowing about IntenitonalSnarkings.com which is why there is a link on my mzchief blog and I mailed a flier to all the neighbours in AnO's and my neighbourhood.

Why do you continue sharing information about a druggie's death? Eventually drugs kill. The same thing happened to my brother. Get over it. Move on. Life is for the living.

Well, I shouldn't say no one. Those little voices in my head like me.

3 dollar a gallon gas would normally be a republican President's fault but now that we have a commie community organizer Muslim in office.....

If Texas Tech thought Mike Leach could lead them to a BCS bowl or national championship, they would have gladly paid the extra $800,000. They simply grew tired of his act.

Sounds like the 2nd grader is rapidly developing into a full-fledged liberal. Should make a great statesperson someday. blech.

I remember when MzCreep jacked with that guy from up north. It was a long while back on LLFTLODQ. She told us where he worked, supposedly told his boss about him screwing around on the internet...it made me sad, because that guy was nice, I think, and she/he/it was an obvious nut to me, way back then. Then eventually, Jarsniplip/Jarhead (aka Reagan RIP, in my opinion) had a problem with that guy in Denton and posted his Google Earth location (dude, I can't imagine how your wife puts up with you, knowing her place in society as we are all obviously aware of through your "hints").....and now this Ano/MzCreep weirdness.......all three of you people are STRANGE. It's nothing to be proud of either. You all need to get yourselves under control, get counseling, and/or learn how to conduct yourselves on the Internet,or else, shut it off. Until then, I FAIL all of you. Phfft.

I'm sorry, but what do GASOLINE prices have to do with natural gas prices? Your royalty does not come from gasoline. Gasoline is produced from crude.

Fuzzy/over processed headed brunettes are skanky too. Girl, do something with that hair of yours. It looks like crap.

And, how dare you contaminate a beautiful bird like the Wilson Warbler with your evil demeanor.

Although we do get natural gas along with oil from our wells, ($91.32 per barrel today) 9:23AM, we're not talking about natural gas. Sorry you don't have any oil wells.

IntentionalSnarkings.com merely reports the FACTS. If you dislike the Tale of Tinkerbell, you are going to HATE the next chapter about the Coach and TeamMom.

Keep in mind, AnO is the one who set the blogging parameters of "'this is my Blog and I'll run it as I see fit.'"
