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.
