Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • Have to love this: After the Knicks lost to the heat last night, Amare Stoudemire punched a fire extinguisher which was enclosed in a glass case. With the aftermath involving blood, broken glass, and paramedics being called, he now might be done for the year
  • There's a radio ad for a development of lake property a couple of hours out of DFW that says the are "selling these lots for half of their fair market value." Based upon that line alone, anyone who even thinks about dealing with that real estate group is an idiot. 
  • Some gal from The Bachelor is a "Hey, Now" at a Las Vegas pool. 
  • There was a report yesterday that today less of a percentage of teenagers in Texas have a driver's license than compared to 10 years ago. I think I know why. 
  • We ate at Kincaid's on Saturday evening in north Fort Worth. I was there a year ago and it was packed. This time it was almost empty. Weird. 
  • I dreamed I had a car repair bill of $2,200.  That was a good dream to wake up from. The waking up part, I mean. 
  • Yu Darvish has the chance to be scary good. After his win last night, he has an ERA of 0.89 over his last three starts. Amazing. 
  • I don't understand the Dallas Morning News. They have a story on their homepage about a gruesome murder but it is behind a paywall. Yet they have a crime blog where the whole story can be read there. And, man, that is one heck of a story
  • Both last week's "manhunt" and yesterday's "stabbing" in Wise County involved some names that the courthouse is familiar with.
  • That David Dewhurst ad where he targets opponent Ted Cruz for representing "the Chinese" (say it in a sinister voice) is meant to target the lowest possible denominator among us. I'm no fan of Cruz, but Dewhurst is a snake. 
  • Everyone went gaga over the release of the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises last night. I got to see some of the last Batman movie a couple of weeks ago, and I continue to be the voice of the minority in saying it was horrible. (But Mrs. LL likes for me to do the Batman voice -- which I can do pretty good, by the way.)
  • A 26 year old Olympic medalist swimmer from Norway who had been training for this summer's games in London was found dead in his bathroom. 
  • I thought the demise of the Mavericks would happen last year. I was 12 months too early. (But why does a game against Oklahoma City start so late in the evening?)
  • There are eleven funeral announcements in today's Update
  • Tony Romo attended the White House Correspondence Dinner?

"Hey Now" has left foot shorter than right foot.

Bacon will probably add 1/2 a point for that.

Batman was gay?

what in the world is with the "exalted" County Commissioner Terry Ross? He appears to be thinking he can just take any action he deems "OK" and the other commissioners should just say"that's a good move, Terry. Enjoy your term, Terry, cause the voters may have another idea for you???

I can read the headlines now... "Olympic swimmer drowns in bathtub"

Isn't it ironic....

I'm with you on Batman. I saw it after Ledger died--I figured anything that got him depressed and addicted to meds (he had to kiss a dude in an earlier movie, after all, to surely this was far darker) had to be good. His part was the best part, but it was fairly milque toast overall.

If you want to see a jacked up movie, watch The Divide. It's pretty effed up, and will make you think. But then again, it's more in my genre than a comic book.

I'm with Bacon on your Hey, Now. She needs a waistline and some boobs. But I bet she can out run you.

Snakes just filed a protest regarding their comparison to David Dewhurst. They are okay with insurance and used car salesmen, but not the current lieutenant governor. Just too slimy.

Cute girl.

Bacon we are either looking at different pics or you are not qualified. They are both greater than 4. I have spoken.

Always funny to see a mugshot after someone commits murder looking all teary eyed like they NOW feel remorse.

Really?

Yeah, you can do a fruity Batman voice. You seem to have that sissified southern voice like Gordon Keith or Michael Waltrip.

How was that Brent Milligan person even out on the street? Did you see his arrest record?? I am sure these winners were the ones who robbed my house...give me 20 minuntes and I would go all "Gibbs" on their butts and they would confess and tell me where all our stuff is!

Maybe Wise County will keep them locked up this time! Wishful thinking.

"A 26 year old Olympic medallist swimmer from Norway who had been training for this summer's games in London was found dead in his bathroom." Leg muscles are not the only muscles in the human body to cramp when electrolytes are depleted or out of balance. This is pretty common in Texas HS football in August workouts. Electrolytes in their water supply are why people on well water have fewer heart attacks than people on city purified water. Reverse osmosis filters are killers.

Ricky Vaughan will hit both those chicks at the same time and still have time to early vote. He is the most interesting man in the world!

The Dark Knight is one of the greatest movies I've ever seen.

I figure a liberal defense attorney would love a movie about a crime fighter abiding by a code of ethics when the bad guy (The Joker) has no ethics whatsoever and represents pure chaos (think a metaphor for the War on Terror and waterboarding).....so I can't figure out why you dislike this movie?!?!?!

Heck, there was even a metaphor for the Patriot Act in this film.

In fact, I have a hard time deciding if either TDK or Tombstone is my favorite movie ever!

I will see the new film with extremely high expectations!!!!

Decatur stabbings are classy, they involve bicycles. Rhome stabbings usually are over generic cigarettes.

I plan to vote for Ricky Vaughan in Rhome, I am so tired of the Wilson/Moore clan. I talked to him a few weeks back and he has some very good ideas for us. He wants that job on City Council and anyone that is willing to fight that current group gets my vote.

Mavs/thunder game was late because it was the late TNT game. It tipped after Knicks/heat was over.

Anonymous said...

What is with you and the Mavericks? "I was 12 months too early." ?!?!? What, oh, you mean you were COMPLETELY WRONG; and now, at the end of a COMPLETELY DIFFERENT SEASON, not to mention some notable changes in the lineup, we have a different outcome? What a shock.

You know, every team that wins a championship does not automatically repeat that accomplishment. In fact, repeat championships are relatively rare.

But, how about this for a forecast. Last year after the Mavs squeaked by the OKC Thunder and handily won the title, while a lot of people were calling the superstar-laden Heat the "team of the future", I was saying No Way ... the OKC Thunder is the team of the future.

And you know what? I still think I was right. That in no way lessons the accomplishment of the Maverick old men last season, who dug deep and finally earned the respect of everybody who knows anything about pro basketball.

Catch the implication?

BG, the mavs got their title you said they would never win with dirk, so what you think now has no merit.

No, Rage, tell me......what makes you assume that I'm gay?

I'm actually a solid heterosexual who cannot keep myself from doing things with women that go against my morals....but I'm still eager to read your hypotheses, LOL!

Jessica Simpson had her baby girl named Maxwell Johnson today. In 18 years she'll be starring in a certain film genre as Max Johnson.

Vaughn is no Michelle Pitman! She will clean up the current mess of Rhome and it's agenda where citizens are treated like subjects! Get out and vote. She is nice, smart, and treats people like a friend instead of an employee number. Vote in a new slate. We need leadership, not tattle tales and people who want to raise taxes by increasing government services in Rhome that are already a joke.

"Tony Romo attended the White House Correspondence Dinner?

They hold dinner by mail?

Dear Heavens - I hope you have a talented paralegal, familiar with Standard American English, to review your legal writings.

On the plus side of the ledger, your assessment of the lake lot development sounds about right.

Get out and VOTE in the DISD school board election and vote for the girls please.
