Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • Edit: Oops. Sorry for delay. Forgot to hit "publish". 
  • The hype for next week's Royal Wedding really hasn't been as bad as I thought it would be. 
  • Helped try to hang curtains in a very small window last night. When the place is so cramped that you can't use a drill, it makes a simple job a beating. And the need to use a hack saw is always a bad sign. 
  • Speaking of: In cleaning out the garage last weekend, I learned I had three hack saws, two sets of bolt cutters, and five tape measures.
  • NBC 5's Jane McGarry big timed us last night on Twitter.
  • If you've seen the Exorcist, you'll probably giggle/be disturbed by this.
  • There's a viral video going around about a reporter with an awful runny nose. I'm not watching that. 
  • I heard that "the Flip" had been discontinued this week and thought they were talking about a flip phone. Nope. It was the Flip video camera that was purchased by Cisco less than two years ago for more than a half billion dollars. They even ran a Super Bowl Ad a couple of months ago. Odd. 
  • The Family Cat is at the cat hospital getting "fixed" right now. (Yep, we were a little slow in getting that done.)  Maybe that will give her an attitude adjustment in general as well as eliminate a severe personality change that occurred every three weeks that really creeped me out. 
  • The murdered Frisco fitness instructor case gets more tragic as we learn she had an eight year old autistic son and an ex-boyfriend is a "person of interest.
  • And I'll continue to point out that "person of interest" is a made up term in the last 15 years or so that has no legal meaning. It's simply a way for the media and law enforcement to refer to a suspect as something other than a suspect in order to avoid defamation issues. 
  • Probably the best collection of Texas wildfire photos here
  • Texas Rep. Kirk Watson was on the radio this morning promoting his bill that provides limited immunity for alcohol related crimes for minors if a person calls 911 to report possible alcohol poisoning of someone else. So a kid's buddy is dying and he's so morally bankrupt that he won't call in because he fears a $500 fine for Minor In Possession? And Watson thinks a law would change that? And how often does this happen anyway?
  • Fox News this morning teased a story on the Houston child who dropped a gun at school with a graphic that read "Kindergarten Justice?". It then teased a story on President Obama's use of Facebook with the question "Does that give him a dangerous advantage?"  Dangerous?
  • I think the new White House Press Secretary is the worst one in years. 
  • I was finally disappointed with an episode of Modern Family last week.

Any news of why Bridgeport cops were at front & back of Brookshires about 7:30 this am with lights flashing?

Kirk Watson is a state senator and a Baylor lawyer.

Hey, that girl in the middle used to be relevant!

Isn't the girl on the right the same girl that posed in the airline captain's uniform a year or so ago?

I can't believe you waited so long to get a female cat fixed. A whole female cat can make you miserable when she comes into heat. Many female cats in heat stay in heat and howl endlessly until a male cat breeds her. Once she recovers from being spayed, you may enjoy her.

9:13, according to the police scanner, there was a horse they were in pursuit of. Maybe, we need to show the horse How not to get your a$$ beat by the police.

Today's pic: Casual Thursday at the Ho-K Corral?

I've never had to use a hacksaw to hang curtains.
Was it an...Iron Curtain? ~rimshot~
Three hacksaws and two bolt cutters?! Do you moonlight as a cat burglar?

Speaking of cats - you will notice a change in the LLFC. She'll gain weight and you'll see an increase in indifferent/dirty looks


The real beatdown will come during the final week before the spare British royals wedding. Every Anglophile and "fashionista" (you know what I'm talkin' 'bout, Willis!) will be all aTwitter

The new press secretary is so terrible it seems intentional. Very odd.

Think the Frisco murder was someone she knows, or knew.

Tom Bishop caught up w the horse on 380. Ticketed him for no tags, plates, inspection, or insurance- Then sent him on his way...

The new press secretary couldn't be that bad. The last one resembled a giant penis.

"Person of interest" is a made up term -- yes, it is. As is every other term, and every other word. The entire English language is made up. None of it is natural. It is entirely a human creation.

Any word on the wildfires BG? Can't find anything and figured you would know!

Jenn Sterger before the implant removal and Brett Fav-er-uh junk scandal... Skanktacular but in a good way.

John Chambers got a reminder that sometimes the best business deals are the ones not made.

Speaking of hacks, when has Jane McGarry ever been relevant? She and Snyder certainly weren't in the "Jane Aggravates Mike" days at Texas News 5.

Good for the Family Cat.

Sen. Watson's bill sounds like a classic manifestation of social constructionism. It gives me tiredhead.

Keep hope alive. That is all. Good day.

9:13 rumor has it someone was trying to plumb into the water system to steal water. Heard some builders in WC like to do this sort of thieving thang.

I'm thinking today's Random Girls used to be men. Is this a pic from a gay bar or something?

There is light rain and/or fog/mist in Palo Pinto County. That is helping with getting the fires under control in that part of Texas.

Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be cowgirls.

Rhome is the place to steal water, not Brookshires!

I'll take the giant penis reference anytime, it ain't bragging if it's fact.

The honey on the right is saying, "Hey there big boy," while the one on the left is ready to play.

Man, I wish I was there!

Right you are Barry, the current White House press secretary is in want. He is a mortification at best.

Okay, 11:46, you reminded me of one of my favorite songs. I've been whistling all day.

I thought the last Modern Family episode was greatness. I laughed for days thinking about the mini van sporting "I cant be pleased" on one side.

I heard it was Mr. Toupee the grocer trying to steal his customers back.

Re the Jane McGarry tweet:

I always suspected that Jane was a party animal. Suspicions confirmed!

Are you sure that the reporter with the runny nose hadn't just "interviewed" Obammy?

I like the new White House Press Secretary way better than the jerk he took over from.

"It's the Three Muffcateers"

Did you write "scripts" for my industry? That was great.
