- Two crime alerts by TCU last week and neither was caused marijuana. (Credit: Bud Kennedy.) The cops might want to spend some time on that.
- I didn't watch a second of it, but Jeremy Lin beat the Mavericks yesterday. He's becoming a great and bizarre NBA story. (And one ESPN headline writer lost his job over the weekend for his creation of "A Chink In The Armor" after a loss.)
- In the house this weekend was a "Scream" mask. (Don't ask.) And it was used to scare me senseless three times by noon on Saturday. The first one occurred when I rolled over in the morning to take my first look at Mrs. LL.
- Sucker Punch - Watched this movie over the weekend which is quickly becoming a cult classic. It's part Sin City, Inglorious Bastards, Kill Bill, Donnie Darko, and a video game.
- NASCAR genius: When qualifying for the poll position at Daytona, Fox shows you the fastest qualifier by the use of a phantom/transparent car next to the current qualifier. Very cool.
- "Doing what I wanted to do in life has never been much of a factor."
- Failed to mention last Friday that the BagOfNothing guy and his wife had a son.
- I discovered this weekend that watching a PG-13 movie with a 13 year old can be very uncomfortable.
- My Valentine's present to Mrs. LL: Tickets to Bring It On - The Musical in Dallas. We saw it Friday night. Verdict: Good stuff. (Although the crowd looked like it was made up of the cast of Mean Girls.)
- There's something weird about the story of the Frisco teen who was allegedly kidnapped and freed over the weekend.
- Mrs. LL watched the end of Scarface on Saturday. The rest of the day she tried to recreate Tony Montana's accent.
- Uh, oh: I see where the Decatur girls will play Abilene Wylie this week in playoff basketball. It's nemesis time. And that's normally a bad thing.
- WBAP traffic gal Laura Houston commented this morning on Whitney Houston's funeral. I didn't hear the whole quote, but she made some reference to Stevie Wonder "flying blind." Wow.
- Photos of a Victoria Secret's commercial. "Hey, . . . " Do I really have to say it?
- Dale Hanson's interview last night with Jason Garrett was great when he asked him why he is so robotic in press conferences. It's a "process" and he's "getting better." Not that it matters, but he'd get a longer leash from the fans if he'd knock that bit off.
- Somebody explain the Newark (Texas) Cultural Education Facilities Finance Corporation mentioned in today's Update.
