Random Monday Morning Thoughts

Edit: I was accused of the Random Girl being a repeat.  Just in case . . .

  • Kim Jong Il is dead and all I can think about is Team America: World Police.
  • The Fantasy Football league up at the courthouse (which includes the DA, CA, and others) is about to be won by the only team managed by females. 
  • I keeping adding lights to my yard - so much so that I tripped a fuse this weekend.  Looking at a fuse box is never a good thing. 
  • I'm thinking of doing something I've never done: Seeing the lights at Interlochen in Arlington. Worth it or a beating? 
  • How did the Russians not scream like school girls in this video?
  • Girl in bikini at Denver/New England game yesterday. Hey, now. 
  • If you haven't already, you'll get an email of a photo of guy and an elk and something scary in the background.  It's fake
  • There was a big fire in Runaway Bay over the weekend. (Doesn't it seem like there's a huge structure fire out there about once a year?) 
  • And it was just a tiny blurb on the news, but a nice house in Keller was destroyed by fire over the weekend as well. Someone actually sent me a picture they took of it.  It's a little blurry, but that's one nice house being destroyed.  
  • The boys on WBAP were discussing the Bob Seger concert at the AAC on Saturday. The man-whose-name-I-won't-mention said that he would have absolutely wanted to hear "Old Time Rock and Roll."  Is there more of a Power Down than the opening chords of that song?
  • Did you hear the Texas Panhandle was supposed to a foot of snow tonight with blizzard conditions? I wouldn't mind that at all. 
  • Deion Sanders asked Tony Romo a very odd question on Saturday night. It's already a Ticket drop. It was only outdone by a St. Louis lineman saying something you cannot say in an open mic.
  • I guess it's about time for the Wise County Messenger's "top stories of the year." I'm guessing the Paradise murder will be #1.

I guess that stuff happens all the time on Russian highways! Normal day at the office! Funny, because I would've been screaming.

Considering the distance to travel, skip the lights at Interlochen. Beating. Instead, drive right down 114 over to Southlake Town Square and get a carriage ride, take in all the pretty lights and shops; get a nice Norman Rockwell vibe going; go over the Central Market and pick up a few nice tasty treats for the next few days...gingerbread men for the kiddos, etc.

Interlochen 20 years ago was worth. Now it's a beating. The lighting isn't nearly as impressive, but it also doesn't take as long to drive through.

Remember, there is no "I" in "Team America".

Interlochen is awesome. If you haven't been there, it is worth the drive and slow slow driving.

Look for remakes of the Russian video on I-27 and I-40 tonight.

Girl in bikini at Denver/New England game yesterday. Hey, now.

Your standards are a little low, barrister.

Broncos girl: so getting nearly nekkid at a football game like drunken frat boys has been co-opted by hot girls in bikinis? Cool!

Russian vid: yeah, that stuff probably happens on a regular basis there. But the copious amounts of vodka consumed while driving has a calming effect. I bet cops pull people over and give tickets for NOT being under the influence. I'm more impressed by the skid-control skills of the truck driver

effing holding call: at the end of that video, Dan Dierdork is right about the differences in officiating styles. (maybe the only time I've agreed with something he said) Could you imagine a baseball umpire penalizing a manager every time he said something that would make a teamster blush (a Russian teamster...just to bring it around full circle)?

Well, at least he went suddenly, and the world's newspaper copywriters didn't have to go with the headline - Kim Jong Il Ill

I watched the RAB Fire Truck drag a hose about 4 miles down the road once, Police Department cant keep there nose out of there buisness, its best to just keep plenty of fire ext around, now if Shell ever catches on fire they will be safe

Yes, do the Interlocken for your girls! Even if it is just one year. They will be amazed and you will win brownie points.

Stop adding lights before there is a huge fire at you house..just saying

BG - Swimming against the stream.....but I like the repeat RTG. Well done (again), Sir.

So... Hans Brix! (Team America FTW)

Skip Interlochen. Even the kids will be bored 30 minutes into it. Take them to Six Flags instead. Holiday in the Park is pretty good.

RAB fire department is an unfortunate (and dangerous) joke. Police even worse. The above advice is valid.

What? No comment on gov. Goodhair double dipping? Apparently he's "retired" so he can draw Gov. salary AND his retirement pay. That guy is an embarrassment for the state of Texas.

Interlochen sucks. I would skip it. But, if you have to go, get some food before you do. It takes forever and once you are in, you can't leave. Its like the mafia that way.

Also, the Ticket seems to think that Kim Jong Il will rise from the dead three days from now. Its happened before...

Double Fake Real Meaning of Christmas

Save yourself a headache and just take the family out to George King's house to look at Christmas lights.

Just rent a 5-ton grip truck and 60kw Burrell Movie Quiet Generator from Mayo Production & Equipment if you want to be the DF Clark Griswold.

If you're ever in Tucson with the family at Christmas, take them to Winterhaven for the lights or, better yet, Christmas Eve Mass at the Mission San Xavier.

What about that subdivision between 377 and Hwy. 10? It use to be worth driving thru.

If there ever was a more useless newspaper practice it's "Stories from the last year."

It's a lazy endeavor. I NEVER pay attention to that story. It's an easy way to fill space.

And, that's the only reason a journalist's exists--to fill space.

Did you hear about the kid, Nicholas Bruce,from Alvordthat died on his birthday on Saturday morning in Beaumont?

I went to the Bob Seger concert Saturday night with very low expectations. First time I saw him was in 1977 at Dallas Convention Center as an opening act for Blue Oyster Cult, then saw him a couple more times in the next few years. Those shows were great, so I did not want to ruin my memories by seeing an old geezer try and stay up. I was pleasantly surprised, the show was pretty good and energetic, except he stuck out the microphone a few too many times to the audience for a sing-a-long.

"I keeping adding lights to my yard - so much so that I tripped a fuse this weekend. Looking at a fuse box is never a good thing"

Point one: If your house has a fuse box it must have been built around 1910 and is probably about to burn down anyway from faulty wiring. If you don't know a fuse box from a breaker panel you should just not open that little door to begin with.


Point two: Guess all you liberal weenies like to talk a good game about conservation and global warming but don't really practice what you preach.

Living near Interlochen, i can truly say it sucks. The participation rate has diminished from year to year since we have lived here. The traffic gets worse & the city's not willing to cough up for traffic control.

Anonymous said...

Why should the city provide traffic control?

The homeowners who provide the event should provide traffic control.

In the past, before budget shortfalls, Arlington provided cops to control the crowds. Without the cops the residents cannot get in or out of the neighborhood easily. I believe Alan Saxe pays for the cops now. It irks me that the cops will be there for Jerry World & yet not for the 1 or 2 weekends this happens. Interlochen is free for the gas & time.
