Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • As mentioned below, my laptop died.  I was working last night with a yellow pad and a pen which caused a huge question mark to form over the head of the Third Grader In The House.
  • They are re-opening the investigation of the death of Natalie Wood?  I smell some law enforcement officials who wants to be on TV.
  • I heard a conversation on the radio this morning about how DFW neighborhoods are becoming increasingly rundown. One caller said a bunch of the "Pitbull element" moved into his area. The host told the audience that that wasn't a reference to race. I'm not sure the host knows who Pitbull is.
  • This month's Texas Monthly has a feature of The 40 Best Breakfast Places. The thought of starting out my day bloated after a big meal has never been appealing to me.
  • This morning news broke of two Oklahoma State women's basketball coaches dying in a plane crash while on a recruiting trip. In 2001, a plane crash took the lives of 10 men who were associated with Oklahoma State's men's team. 
  • Buried in the Dallas Morning News: "A 14-year-old boy with spina bifida used a 'mechanics creeper' to get around the Bridgeport Health Care Center in Wise County." (Link with picture.)
  • The war with the Neighbor Boys behind the Family Household has been in a truce for months now.  Oddly, the entire family disappears for the entire summer which probably has something to do with it. 
  • Urination and Black Friday in Denton? Don't ask.
  • TCU raises it's annual tuition to $34,500. (Callback Side note: I wonder if that "Graham Cracker" guy won the student body election?)
  • I'm excited about college football tomorrow and the fact that both Baylor's basketball teams are ranked. You know what my house is excited about?: Twilight.
  • Back to trial. Back to brain exhaustion.

Pitbull. As in fighting dogs, not bald singers.

And yeah, trashy folks who fight pits pretty much transcend all racial boundaries.

If we're jumping into the Way-back Machine for a questionable celebrity death, why not go for the mother lode and reopen the investigation on Marilyn Monroe?
But seriously, the boat captain allegedly misled investigators when the case was fresh

Today's RT pic:
that amphibian seems to be adapting quite well to breathing air

"...working last night with a yellow pad..."
Commonly known as a legal pad, counselor

Show of hands - Who needs a non sequitur name for their garage band?

One of those nagging questions:

In nature, wouldn't the hello kitty phone attack the frog hat and eat it?

Barry, you know you secretly watch Twilight and have probably read the books, too. So, are you Team Jacob or Team Edward?? lol

She's got the body of an adult and the maturity and sense of humor of a child. I'd say pretty representative of the gender as a whole these days.

Hello Kitty phone cover. smh.

We all know you were actually using a Big Chief pad and a No. 2 yellow pencil. You don't have to lie.
