Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • The Dallas Morning News reported that five separate motorists were shot at on I-30 near Dallas on Sunday night. Wow. What a story. But the next day they changed the story to "six people" being shot at - four within one car. And details are sketchy at that.
  • Mrs. LL had "Love Happens" on yesterday (a Jennifer Aniston film).  I already decided it was horrible and then they actually threw in the "slow clap" at the end of the movie.
  • I completed the new flower bed over the weekend. Projects are much easier when you don't have to reinvent the wheel.
  • But my neighbor gave me a look like, "Quit trying to scoreboard me." The next day he was out planting flowers with his two kids -- an obvious attempt to scoreboard me. 
  • Of the final sixteen teams left in March Madness, four are from Ohio: Ohio State, Ohio University, Cincinnati and Xavier.
  • With Craig James, Ted Cruz, and David Dewhurst running for Senate, we have a trifecta of nut case crazy conservatives running. Dewhurst even has a liberal pick'em bracket. 
  • The Family Cat sat on my lap for three minutes yesterday. Shocking.
  • That Coutney Stodden chick went surfing, and I bet she doesn't know how to surf. But she's still a Hey, Now. 
  • The producer of that Kony 2012 video had a very unfortunate weekend
  • I heard over the weekend that the Kony video/cause took off because it personalized a problem in Uganda.  Just like no one seemed to care about apartheid in South Africa before "free Mandela" became the slogan, Kony was a face that could be associated with Uganda. For some reason, that works with the public. 
  • Baylor has a guy who is basically a three point shooter but he's good -- he hit nine of them the other night. But I could do without his making of "three point sign" hand gesture that he puts up to his eye(s) when he is successful. It drives me nuts. 
  • I'll flip over to KLIF in the mornings to listen to five minutes to Jeff Bolton's crazy callers. The first one I heard this morning said that "Obama is about to sign a treaty sponsored by the United Nations that will make gun possession illegal in the United States."  And, as always, Bolton never disagrees with any assertion.
  • We almost had a news combo: An officer was hit by a wrong way driver in Dallas (but he was off duty.) He'll be OK.
  • One of my pet peeves has always been traffic signal lights not being in sync. Before they built the overpass in Wichita Falls, there was the greatest string of in sync lights on 287. I bet there were eight or more that magically turned green as you approached them.  Heck, they may still be there. 
  • We've a three woman Random Thought Girl today. The boys on RAGE at The Fan had three behind them at the St. Pat's Greenville Avenue Parade but something isn't quite the same

Please elaborate on your description re: nut case crazy conservatives.

What specific reason do you call them that?

Gun manufacturers are doing a good job of advancing sales with Obama scare tactics.

Isn't there a little deal about treaties having to be "ratified" by the Senate?

Not to mention that O isnt' about to fire up the NRA any more than it is in an election year!

Is it that the girl on the right has some kind of skin-colored bandage covering some kind of scar (C-Section or belly tuck)? Do I win some kind of "something's different between these pictures" prize?

I-30 near Dallas is becoming our own little Chicago. We need to get a black man in there and start organizing that place.

I wouldn't put Dewhurst in the crazy category. He is a mainstream country club Republican. He just has to pretend to be crazy for the primary.

Come on, Barry . . . Courtney Stodden is till a minor . . . it's a bit creepy to say Hey Now to a minor in public (though privately it's probably OK). But then again, her parents did sign her away to marry an adult, so I guess that might just void my argument.

Your female trio look like they're all at least 12 years old. Or I must just be getting old.

Steve Kerr made a damn fine living as a designated three-point shooter. He was a member of 5 NBA championship teams and made the cover of "Jet" magazine. That's not too bad of a haul for a slow white guy whose NBA career goal was to last long enough to qualify for the NBPA pension plan.

Just when I think that douche nozzle Richie Shitt can't get any more douchy (is that even a word?), he finds the new bottom. What a tool.

Richie "The Midget" Whitt looks fat and fifty.

Greg "The Pharaoh" Williams looks nuttier than usual and that is saying something, brother.

The RTG on the left has some pretty tight paints on.

Watch out boys, she'll chew you up.

Counselor, perhaps you missed the article in the Dallas morning news last week in the Business section I believe about the $1000/hour lawyers in Texas and specifically in DFW. They interviewed a couple of them and asked them to explain why they were worth $1000/hour.

Please share your comments with your followers.

I wonder if the brilliant traffic planner for TXDOT will sync Boyd's new light with the first one?

Bacon came back from Spring Break a little cranky, didn't he? That girl on the right deserved better than that.

Hey, I know an attorney in Dallas who makes $1,000/hr. His (now ex) wife wanted to go to counseling and he asked her if her "feelings were hurt worth $1,000 an hour." And YES, Douchy is a word, and YES, it fits this Decatur gone Dallas attorney QUITE well!!!
