Random Thursday Morning Thoughts



  • You save a file by hitting the floppy disk icon - an icon that depicts an item that a whole generation is unfamiliar with. 
  • A flight attendant has a few glasses of wine and goes home to bed after taking two Ambien. Later, she will leave her apartment barefoot and dressed in her "sleeping clothes" and drive several miles with a flat tire before crashing into another vehicle and severely injuring an 18 month old. The verdict in San Antonio here on the charge of Intoxication Assault.
  • John Edwards is a bad man, but I'm not sure he's guilty of campaign financing laws. And I'm surprised his lawyers were able to convince him not to testify.
  • For the first time ever this week, I ate some of those golden tomatoes. I'll be dang if they don't taste exactly like red tomatoes.
  • I think Mrs. LL woke up and watched The Office at 3:00 in the morning last night.
  • For the first time ever, a baby born in the U.S. is more likely to be non-white than white. 
  • The would-be Paradise model was in New York to become a HowardTV girl.
  • One of my favorite actors, Nick Stahl, is missing. He starred in Terminator 3, Sin City, Bully, and In The Bedroom to name a few.
  • I think that "Did Texas Execute An Innocent Man" story does have legs. And people are also beginning to remember Justice Scalia's famous concurrence where he said there had not been “a single case—not one—in which it is clear that a person was executed for a crime he did not commit. If such an event had occurred in recent years, we would not have to hunt for it; the innocent’s name would be shouted from the rooftops.”
  • I'm in a DWI trial today so it may be slow around here. And the preparation for the trial made me completely miss a "not guilty" verdict in a drug case in the district court yesterday.
  • This lady hung herself?

What makes you think he is not guilty? He used campaign funds to cover up his affair. Cheapskate should have used his own money.

The wine/ambien airline cocktail waitress case is another example of a miscarriage of justice.

What a generation we live in. Instead of accepting full responsibility for our own action, what do we do? Blame it on something else.

It was the drugs, not me. Really? I guess the drugs ingested themselves. I can't fathom any person being prescribed a dosage of two ambien at a single time. They are designed to be consumed in one dose usage (for all of us not in the 300 lbs club).

Prescription drugs, especially ambien comes with a disclaimer on the prescription bottle that prohibits the combination of the drug with alcohol.

So what does our mile high cocktail waitress do? Downs most of a bottle of wine, takes TWO, and decides to put on her footies and go for a drive.

What a decline of personal responsibility this country has taken. I guess there's not much honor left in our society. But then again, Honor isn't a term that most people are used to anymore.

Random moment here... Weatherford College is becoming a Joke! My tax dollars at work!? I know of kids who have worked for the last 2-3 years to get into the EMT and Police Academy at Weatherford College, Decatur Campus and wanted to Transfer and were TOLD to wait, a Police Academy was coming when the new campus was built. What do you say to these students, who have worked their tails off and waited?! Sorry young man/woman you can’t become a Peace Officer or an EMT, but how about becoming a Hair Dresser?! No offense to hair dressers/cosmetologists or whatever, but come on! These kids worked hard, with a promise of being able to go to school locally. Shame on you!

The articles I've read say Nick Stahl has a serious drug problem.

Ironic that Stahl was hired to play John Connor in Terminator 3, only because the original John Connor (Eddie Furlong) wasn't asked back because he too had a drug problem.

Being John Connor must be a terrible burden!

9:25, You think they aren't covering Edwards? Jesus.

But Sarah Palin keeps herself in the limelight (making her more than fair game), and ran on a morality platform despite her own personal failings (putting even her personal life at issue). At least Edwards didn't run on a "don't fool around" platform.

Ummm, The Flight Attendant willingly chose to drink all that wine and double the dosage of Ambien.

Note the following, taken from the FDA info on Ambien...

http://www.drugs.com/pro/ambien.html

What is the most important information I should know about Ambien?

After taking Ambien, you may get up out of bed while not being fully awake and do an activity that you do not know you are doing. The next morning, you may not remember that you did anything during the night. You have a higher chance for doing these activities if you drink alcohol or take other medicines that make you sleepy with Ambien. Reported activities include:

driving a car ("sleep-driving")


making and eating food

talking on the phone

having sex

sleep-walking

Call your doctor right away if you find out that you have done any of the above activities after taking Ambien.
Important:

1. Take Ambien exactly as prescribed
Do not take more Ambien than prescribed.


Take Ambien right before you get in bed, not sooner.

2. Do not take Ambien if you:
drink alcohol


take other medicines that can make you sleepy. Talk to your doctor about all of your medicines. Your doctor will tell you if you can take Ambien with your other medicines.

cannot get a full night's sleep

I think Nick Stahl was taken out either by a T-1000 that shape shifted into the form of his drug dealer or he went back to prevent Skynet from killing his mother, again.

Either that or Bruce Willis ripped off his "yellow package" and beat him to a pulp.

All scenarios are highly likely.

10:08 am: And what if they want to finish their degree at the Institution in which they started at?! Were promised to at!? That doesn’t matter? And most (no offense) online schools aren’t accredited, nor is the degree worth the paper it is printed on. The point is these kids were promised to be able to begin and finish their degrees at Weatherford College. They were told, stick it out, stay with us and we will see to it that you can get your Peace Officers and/or EMT certification here. Now they can't. Period.

Anonymous said...

You Weatherford college, DeVry, ATI, etc, folks are laughable. Everyone knows WC is a place to send your "kids" to during high school, when they are still "kids", just to get a head start on their college level basics. Then they grow up, graduate HS, transfer their credits to a real college. I think the world has enough poorly eductated, underpaid/overworked EMTs and/or cops with authority chips on their shoulders.

Rage......So when can we expect HBO to make a movie about John Edwards?

I believe that HBO decided to make their Palin movie exclusively about Palin, despite the fact that she was only one of several characters in the book it was based off of.

Barack Obama, the first African-American president of the Harvard Law Review, was born in Kenya and raised in Indonesia and Hawaii. The son of an American anthropologist and a Kenyan finance minister, he attended Columbia University and worked as a financial journalist and editor for Business International Corporation. He served as project coordinator in Harlem for the New York Public Interest Research Group, and was Executive Director of the Developing Communities Project in Chicago’s South Side. His commitment to social and racial issues will be evident in his first book, Journeys in Black and White.


Guess those birthers did have legitimate suspicions afterall.

Dear 12:28,

We can't all be Elitist with someone else footing the Bill! Some people have to do Work/School/Parenting/Caretaking all at the same time without the benefit of Mommy and Daddy and/or the Federal Government picking up the Tab. I commend those who choose to further themselves anywhere, any way they can (hence the whole "no offense" to online schooling/homeschooling). And yes, most kids go there with the ONLY thought in mind is of getting their basics out of the way. And some just want to continue their education anyway they can. Here's hoping the next time one of these kids who is trying to better him/herself waits on you in one of our local restaurants, while also going to school, SPITS in Your F@#$ing food! Have a Great Day

I'm not sure what that has to do with anything, 9:25, but I imagine they will make a movie about Edwards when they feel they can make as much money off of it as they think they will from one about Palin.

Don't act like you won't be watching the Palin movie with one hand down your pants. The money they make is because of right wingers.

Rage,
I cancelled my HBO subscription a long time ago because of the DESPICABLE Bill Maher. I have no plans to watch a Hollywood smear job on the latest prominent Republican.

And I believe a smear movie about Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Ted Kennedy or any other prominent liberal would make a lot of money.....but Hollywood would never make that film for ideological reasons (in other words, they like liberals and hate conservatives).

And if I want to get excited by Juliane Moore (the actress who played Palin), I'll just rent any of a number of films in which she's done graphic nudity.

Iknow you probably don't get out much with that ankle bracelet but the movie "Primary Colors" with John Travolta was all about Clinton and his many faults.

Edwards didn't testify because the prosecution failed to prove he broke the federal law he was accused of (you might want to read up on that law) so there was no need to put him on the stand.

Are you the only person on the planet that doesn't know that Primary Colors was about the '92 Clinton campaign and written by a reporter that covered the Clinton campaign. If all you saw were implied infidelities and didn't see the ruthless campainer and broken promises to his supporters you might want to watch it again.
