Random Monday Morning Thoughts


  • If you got stuck in traffic on 380 headed into Denton on Saturday night, this is why.
  • Mrs. LL and I had our anniversary dinner and Bob's Steak and Chophouse (thanks largely to a gift certificate.)   We had an issue when we realized we were completely full after an appetizer of lobster bisque and calamari. There was no way I was going to ask for a take out bag in that high-tone place but thankfully the waitress said, "Can I wrap any of this up for you?"
  • I realized I would have hated to be the guest host on Man vs. Food
  • And it must not be that unusual to get a take-out bag there -- the valet had the back seat door open for me to drop it in there. 
  • The strangest story over the weekend concerned the 17 year old who was found shot to death on the doorstep of a home in Tanglewood in Fort Worth. The homeowner says he didn't know her. One of the news stations said she was shot in the head three times. Wow.
  • Another weird death: A Weatherford college student's body was discovered when a person was seen attempting to be load it into a vehicle. The guy loading the body fled, got away, but was identified.
  • Near death: A UT student in South Africa was brutally attacked by two chimpanzees. 
  • Big wigs from the Dallas Mavericks meet with free agent Deron Williams in an effort to sign him.  Oddly, Mark Cuban will not be in that group because he will be in Los Angeles to film an episode of that awful Shark Tank. (But his absence probably improves the Mavs' odds of signing Williams which don't seem very good right now.)
  • The reviews for Magic Mike are actually good, but I don't think most females care if it has a plot. I'm not sure it has hit Mrs. LL's radar yet.
  • It's "Vampire Mid-Week" for the 4th of July in Wise County.  The government will be taking your blood against your will after DWI arrests.
  • Wednesday is the worst day for a holiday to fall upon. 
  • Whatever happened to "Dr. Laura"?

I'm kinda curious about those no refusal weekends. When it comes time for the blood draw, do they go all "Walls Unit" on you, and does the blood draw occur before the individual has had time to consult with defense council?

Last I heard, Dr. Laura quit radio over some sort of N-word controversy.

Wednesday is the best day for a holiday to fall on, because it means two short work weeks instead of one long one.

My wife is a 5' foodie. She's relentless when ordering every course on the menu. You bet your ass we take a lot home. It makes more sense when you drop $150 per person than when you drop $15.

These Scientology guys are giving us Religious Right Wingers a bad name. If you leave a Baptist Church we only talk bad about you.

Trust me, Barry. Magic Mike is on Mrs LL's radar. Big time.

Every woman in America is figuring how to slip off and see the movie, with or without their significant other's knowledge. Even Ellen DeGeneres.

The next thing they will do is start monitoring obscure and irrelevant Facebook opinions.

Don't drink like a fool and you won't have to worry about the blood vampires on the holiday! Most people would rather have blood drawn from drunks than to have the drunks slam into them and their families on the highway. To damn many people worry about the rights of the criminals and not enough people worry about their victims and their rights!

"The base ape forming the various races of man differed, and not all races of man so engineered survived. Of the races that survived, White Man had the hottest temper. Quick, flashy, but quickly cooled. The root ape for White Man defended itself by a loud bluster, shrieking and hopping up and down. You've heard the expression, hopping mad, and this is where it comes from. White Man, even today, blusters and bluffs more than he engages." Per the Zeta's

The wreck in Denton apparently injured a Bridgeport resident's son. He was the one taken to Plano. Prayers for him and all involved
