Random Thursday Morning Thoughts


  • The crowd for the Mavericks parade sounds like it will be insane. By 7:00 a.m., the crowd was jockeying for the best spots.  And by 8:00 a.m., Victory Plaza had been shut down due to reaching a capacity of 3,000 or more. 
  • Random pic from a DART train this morning headed downtown. And the crowd outside the convention center (starting point)  before 8:00 a.m.  And a sneak peak of one of the (high school like)  floats.
  • Anybody at that parade have a job? 
  • The parade goes right by the old School Book Depository. I suppose it would be in bad taste to have the Mav's mascot "Champ" waiving from the Sixth Floor. 
  • I don't know if I've ever cared about any team long enough to stand around four hours to see them pass by. 
  • Electricity problems plagued Decatur yesterday. And some folks were reporting their electricity going off again this morning. 
  • I bet if the Lake Bridgeport Sunken Safe had been hidden on a 100 acre ranch instead, there would have been less effort expended to find it. But diving is fun.
  • I'm hearing lots of radio personalities pimping themselves out for some weight loss program called Medifast. Sad to hear the Ticket's George Dunham do the same claiming that he had lost 10 pounds in one week. What was the weight loss promotional product scandal in the 1990s? Vigerfit? 
  • Sean Hannity thought his audience would enjoy him interviewing  Larry The Cable Guy last night.  Sadly, he's probably right.
  • Looked up and saw Mrs. LL filling up at the gas station at the same time as me yesterday evening. Is it wrong to immediately think about how much money we were spending on gas at that moment after initially being glad to see her?
  • The Maverick who was arrested for PI was interviewed by Fox 4's Shaun Rabb. The best part was Rabb going so street on us. 
  • Rep. Weiner college pics take the scandal to a whole new level. Edit: And we're getting the first reports that he has decided to resign.
  • The Soon To Be Third Grader In The House has picked up the phrase, "This will not end well."

Believe it or not, some people at the parade do have jobs, and will even put in a full day's work today. For example the tens of thousands that work in downtown Dallas anyway, and are able to take a couple hours this morning to walk over. Others have this thing called "vacation" time, or "personal" time they can use to take a few hours off. And still others work for employers that kind of "get it", and use the parade as a team/fun activity for their employees. Those employers figure that a couple hours off for something silly once every 40 years or so won't do any long term harm to the bottom line. Yes, some people at the parade have jobs.

Barry is spending a lot of money on gas? I thought you were a liberal and would be driving "green" vehicles. Instead you are poluting the earth with CO2 and causing this global warming that is upon us. Go buy a couple of those electric things, please. Maybe you are a closet Republician?

The Weiner is all shriveled up!

There are a lot of men like that Weiner guy. He is probably a transvestite. Female gender in a male body. People with huge skeltons in their closet are really dumb to place themselves in public arenas, like politics. He has to resign, no choice because people will not accept him. He is a flawed puppy to our way of thinking.

It's a good thing you are making big bucks Barry. It's really hard to fill up these days on minimum wage. Even if you are making good money, I don't know what will happen when the parents can't come up with the money they have been accustomed to lavishly spending on their spoiled kids.

Battered by scandal, New York Democrat Anthony Weiner was determined to stick it out, but then he saw the irony and resigned.

(Kudos to Democrats on this one. My long-time statement "Democrats are never forced to resign from office because of scandal" will have to be amended to "...almost never forced to resign..."

No interest in the Stanley Cup, even when Dallas Stars were in the the hunt years ago. Should only be played where it is as cold outside as it is inside the rink.

I've got no love for Anthony Weiner, he's clearly done some stupid stuff and deserves a lot of ridicule. But, don't we all have some stupid photos of ourselves from when we were young? ...or at least, we're thankful that our friends at that time were not photographers?

Sad to hear the Ticket's George Dunham do the same claiming that he had lost 10 pounds in one week.

The Ticket also sells auto lease plans for people very bad at simple arithmetic. The Ticket sells hair plug surgeries and sleep apnea procedures too. What does all this say about the typical Ticket P1? LOL!

"Anybody at that parade have a job?"

Translation: Do black people work?

"I suppose it would be in bad taste to have the Mav's mascot "Champ" waiving from the Sixth Floor."

It depends on what he's "waiving". If he's "waiving" his right to vote or his right to have a jury trial, that would probably be okay. Now, if he were "waving" from the window, that would be questionable.

1) Random Thoughts- What's up with the dude on the right...!?!?!

2) That picture taken on the DART train speaks volumes about who works and who doesn't.'Nuff said.

3) Weiner looks too much like Arnold Horshak. Can't keep from laughin' about it.

4) Vancouver (VanDirty) is a shithole of a town. I reckon the only redeeming quality is the fact that it's legal to smoke a little grass if you want.

Medifast is not new. It has been around since 1982. Yes, you lose weight very quickly on the program. It tastes absolutely awful so you don't even want to eat their food. Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem are better food. Weight Watchers is a better all-around diet. Medifast is nasty, but they're all better than bariatric surgery, which is extremely dangerous and only works if you re-program your mind. Any and all weight-loss initiatives involve a change in mind-set, so why alter your body internally? Pick a good system like weight watchers, nutrisystem, etc., and exercise. The weight will come off without expensive and risky surgery.

What about all the ambassador and other white house jobs that Obamy has appointed? MORE than GW did which he highly critized for doing such! Now, Obamy has made more political appointments than any other president since Ford. Come on, wake up, America! And to think this was reported from the liberarl weiners over at ABC news. Sheesh

And kudos to you, Wordkyle, for admitting you were wrong.

I'll have to follow your lead and admit that I was wrong in that I thought you would not admit you were wrong.
Confused, yet?

LL... The two honeys on the left are semi hot to hot... but for my money, I'd take the one on the right (in yellow). She looks like the one most likely to give it her all... I could make a star outta her. Yummy.

wordkyle said...

1101 - You assume too much. Up until the Weiner scandal I was right. Who'd have thought, after Kennedy, Clinton, Studds, Frank, Rangel, Waters, Dodd, et al, stayed in office, that any behavior was bad enough to make a Democrat resign? Apparently the answer was "Unwise Tweeting."

Anonymous said...

Forget all those weighloss programs.

I find that portion control and eating healthy will shed the pounds. ANYONE CAN DO IT IF THEY WANT IT BAD ENOUGH.

Why is that so hard to understand?

Anonymous said...

More like "Underwear Tweeting" Word.

Anonymous said...

Some of us have more difficulty with portion control than others, 12:06. That is the way the programs help. But you are correct in that anyone can do it if they want it badly enough. There is no reason to alter the body internally, because the core problem, the mind and its cravings, remain the same. Surgery to find a quick fix is not only risky but just plain stupid, because you can circumvent anything unless you make your mind up: then you can do it with hard exercise and discipline.

The Ticket used to push Body Solutions. All the hosts were on it claiming amazing weight loss before Body Solutions turned out to be a fraud.

You don't think they would lie to a sweet, clean P1?

Why should Dems resign for lesser things than repubs (Iran-Contra... cough,cough)...

Anonymous said...

Only three parades that I have or would stand for:
1. Veteran's Day
2. Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo
3. Texas Aggie Corps marching in downtown Fort Worth or Dallas prior to a football game (not so much these post-SWC days)

I can't believe wordiekyle gave such a weak reply to "FON." What is going on here ?

wordkyle said...

601 - In the spirit of brotherhood and bipartisanship, I wanted to give FON a chance to explain his comment. With the thorough explanation that's sure to come, we'll all have a better idea of how well he really understood what he was talking about. I'm sure it won't be some Wikipedia copy-and-paste job, either, we're talking quality historical scholarship. We're talking facts, not just Democrat talking points and innuendo. Somebody who drops an enigmatic comment like that (complete with cough, cough!) is certain to have a firm grasp on the subject, along with the ability to explain it. With a spirit of generosity, I wanted to give him the chance to shine. That's just the kind of person I am. I'm a giver.

P1 = position one on your car radio buttons.

Meaning, your favorite station.

KTCK 1310 AM refers to their listeners as "P 1's", meaning, they have 1310 AM as their primary radio station, associated with button 1 on their radio settings.

Me personally...I have 1310 am as the station of choice on all 6 of my AM radio buttons in my personal transportation unit.
