Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Crazy Texas Mommy got married over the weekend.
  • I sneezed while walking to my car the other morning. I then got a text message that read, "Bless you."
  • Mrs. LL bought one of those backstops which is supposed to propel the ball back to you if you can hit it.  Those are cheaply made, but a couple of tree stakes to secure it to the ground did the trick. (Me = Genius.)
  • My consecutive throw-and-catch-in-the-air record now stands at 16. It's harder than you think. 
  • Man, you've got to see that Ron Artest elbow throw from yesterday. (Replay at the 1:00 mark.) Wow.
  • I bought a replacement weedeater head that doesn't spool but uses two short lines instead. Worked like a charm.
  • The Hunger Games continues to dominate the box office. My household might be responsible for a great deal of it. (But, no, I haven't seen it.)
  • Weirdness continues: Baylor's baseball team swept the Aggies this weekend bringing their win streak to 23.
  • Barry Switzer used to tell top recruits: "If you come here next year, Oklahoma will win a National Championship. If you don't come here, Oklahoma will still win a National Championship."  He's one of my favorite guys to listen to being interviewed.
  • Drives me nuts when reporters tweet, "I'll be interviewing [so and so] at noon. What questions would you like for me to ask?" Hey, you're the reporter.
  • How did the Doobie Brothers get away with being named the Doobie Brothers?
  • Another person who lived on my street where I grew up died over the weekend. Depressing. 
  • There are still more facts to learn, but I'm thinking the prosecutor in the George Zimmerman case has bitten off more than she can chew.
  • "Drunk Driver Sentenced To Wear Sign Saying He Killed A Man."  Sheesh. The story should be "Houston Judge Seeks Publicity."
  • Sports Prediction: The Mavericks won't see Round Two of the Playoffs. 
  • Somehow I stumbled upon  “Khloe and Lamar” over the weekend with the episode dealing with Lamar being depressed after being traded to the Mavericks. If that show is ever 10% true, he's the biggest baby in the history of ever. 
  • Mrs. LL got some librarian looking glasses.

For the record, Baylor Baseball ran its winning streak to 24 games, not 23 after sweeping the Ags out of town.

You will learn to love putting in a new string and not having to re-roll the spool. I don't know why anyone still makes one with a spool.

Hmmm--the Artest elbow throw. Let's see, give him (and others like him) everything they want starting with high school. Then recruit him (and others like him) for college and give them everything they want. Then hire him (and others like him) onto your professional team and give them everything they want. And then question his behavior? What did you expect?

Hire the 'hood--you get the 'hood.

Professional team sports nowadays.

Beautiful. From this angle she looks all natural and not like someone who is trying to morph into a dairy cow. Yea, I am male and no I am not jealous of intentionally/artifically deformed breasts. They are sick.

No bacon there. It all got burned off by the heat.

So much for world peace.

I like a little backside on the RTG every once in a while.

I also like librarian glasses.

Switzer was one of my favorites because of how uncomfortable he made Dale Hansen. He's funny, but also a first class scum bag.

I like the drugs and alcohol and 2012 guys better than deformed breasts guy.

The Bacon scale definiitely needs calibrating, but today he got this one just about right.

I agree with you about the Houston judge. That is twice this year and it is only April. Which one of is morphing?

Yes, Yes I did!! And, almost 48 hours later, we are still married and everyone is still alive. Thanks for posting the link!! You're a nice man! Getting used to a new last name is weird, though.

"Mrs. LL got some librarian looking glasses."

Shouldn't the word "hot" be inserted somewhere in that sentence?

The public shaming actually is a pretty effective method of preventing crime, and in permitting people to get back into society. Rather than having us pay $38,000/yr for housing him in prison, let's shame him, and then bring him back into the fold.

Read the superb work Crime, Shame, And Reintegration by noted sociologist John Braithwaite.

Shame is good. It means more than prison. It means more than threat of death. Then, when we have shamed, we reintegrate the guy (who KILLED someone, let's remember) back into society.

You can call it Draconian or attention-seeking. I call it sound sociological and criminological theory. You might try studying some of this stuff. It affects our jobs, Barry.

That's a rather attractive backside your Monday RTG is working there.

Congratulations to CTM and her new hub.

The Doobie Brrothers could call themselves the "Doobie Brothers" because it was the '70s and they were from the Bay Area. Also, there weren't any 24 hour cable "news" channels that had to manufacture outrage to help kill all that extra bandwidth that's between commercial breaks. If they could sell a test pattern as programming, they would.

I didn't even know Texas Crazy Momma was single. In fact, I don't even know who Texas Crazy Momma is. In fact, I could care less.

Who is it that passed away over the weekend? I too, grew up a few blocks away from that neighborhood. We lived a few streets over from Fitzgerald's (later Sam's) grocery.

Carlton Mann passed away. He was the principal at Bport Jr. High for a number of years. Read the update for the details.

Re the RT Girl:

Why do ladies (and some men) purchase pricey lingerie & swimwear that is stylistically pushed into the Great Divide? Decades ago we had the same thing occur on the playground. It was called a wedgie and we received it for free. Besides, I remember the chafing. Just wondering.

ps - thumbs up on the librarian glasses

Mr Mann was more than just princilpe at the Junior High, he served many roles in Bridgeport schools. And no mention of it in any update so far. Thanks you very much.

The first article in the Update was about Mr. Mann. Where were you?

Anonymous said...

I post allot of stupid stuff...just to excite people...... But if Mr. Mann passed....that is sad....he was a heck of a man. When I came to Wise County he showed me the ways... I looked at BISD's finances and he set the District up for long term success... Look at the terms of the debt Carrolton did, not measured in TEA terms, but in Wise County common sense...fiscally responsible... he loved Bridgeport ISD, took care of it like it was his family.....we lost a man among men with Carrolton....May God take care of my mentor today...may God take care of my mentor today.
