Random Friday Morning Thoughts


  • I had a bite of a Holy Moly hot dog (or something like that ) from Sonic last night. That was one tasty hot dog.
  • Finally saw the Honey Boo Boo show the other day.  It was more disgusting than you would imagine. 
  • A guy was found not guilty of murder in Tarrant County yesterday after a "drug deal gone bad."
  • It will be fascinating to see what the punishment will be in the Kennedale teacher case. All the "victims" were willing participants and over 18 years of age (it's only a crime because they were students in her school).  If the jury maxes her out (I'm assuming a guilty verdict first), they'll be punishing her for being a freak.
  • The documentary Searching For Sugar Man sounds fantastic.  A guy records two albums which never sell in America but, unbeknownst to him, are wildly popular in South Africa. He struggles for forty years in odd jobs until the documentary makers track him down to let him know about his fame.
  • From bagofnothing.com "Lady GaGa's Bodyguard at Work".  I'm kind of with the bodyguard on that one -- you can't let some guy come rushing at her.
  • For you nerds who like stuff like Evernote and Reminder apps, I think I've found the most simply genius product ever: WorkFlowy. Everything you want -- all on one page -- lists embedded in lists embedded in more lists. Whatever you can think of. 
  • There were four trucks headed to Decatur this morning with "Hollywood Trucks" listed on the side followed by "Leased to Georgia Film Fund". 
  • I'm going back to short hair this weekend. 
  • Yeah, the bicyclist had the right of way when hit, but to be riding in the center lane of Camp Bowie Boulevard at midnight in Fort Worth is insane. 
  • I saw a note on Facebook the other day that the Tarrant County Sheriff's Office had identified the body found near Newark a couple of weeks ago, but I've not seen a news story about it.

RTG- about a 6.5 out of 10
not really into the whole thunder thigh thing(say that 5 times real fast) kind of cute face though

About the spraying--I got a text from WFAA about the beginning of the spraying last night. I have no idea how they got my phone number to send a text to it! One of those things that makes you scratch you head with a puzzled look on your face.

Saw part of the boo boo show. They don't have enough class to join "people of Wal-Mart", much less have their own show. Sad to see what "entertainment" has stooped to.

I don't know about over yonder, but the Lubbock Sonics have upgraded dramatically since they first opened here in the 70s. The food's better (i.e., higher quality and hotter,) they're clean, and service is great. Sonic overall has become a "thing." Matthew McConaughey even installed a particular ice machine in his Hollywood office so he can have "Sonic ice." Prices are high, though. I miss 80¢ burgers and 35¢ tater tots.

P.S. If you watch a show with the title "Honey Boo Boo," you deserve what you get.

One of them "hollywood" trucks was stopped by DOT this morning outside of Alvord.

Cyclist story says he was in the center of the right lane, not the center lane. That is, he's was in the right lane, but not hugging the right side of the right lane, because then drivers try to squeeze past him in the same lane.

Are you also pissed that you can't buy a new Ford pickup for $13,500 like you used to could?

I like how the body guard had his knee over the dude's neck while he was on the ground. He gets points deducted because he wasn't twisting his tail and had they tried to brand or castrate him he would have squirmed all over the place, but otherwise he did an OK job.

Today's RTG is great. I like 'em a little soft.

Wordkyle chastizing you for watching a video while espousing Sonic as his favorite high class restaurant? Priceless.

8:40 - Do you have a WFAA app on your phone? I got a push notification at the same time they said they sent out the text. Maybe you were confusing that for a text?

And direct quote from the article about the cyclist:

"Ford was riding in the center of the right eastbound lane on Camp Bowie when he was hit"

9:27-
Your perception of eliminating a virus by air bombing insects is laughable. WNV is completely a symptomatic in 110 of every 141 inoculations. 30 of 141 result in mild fever which resolves on its own. 1 in 141, or 1 in 0.7% results in encephalitis, with possible neurogenic side effects. The most at risk are the immunicompromised. That's hardly a reason to scare the public, even less of a reason to air bomb the public with chemicals that destroy our naturally occurring insects. It's quite irresponsible. ( before you cast aspersions, I don't typically vote for left leaning candidates. Politics shouldn't cloud evidence based thought)

I took a spin through workflowy. It's basically outlook Tasks, except you can include anything you want whereas i typically only use tasks for work. i think it can be helpful to mix them up a little, although i wish it imported tasks from outlook. For now, the import function s just a glorified cut and paste job that will re-format into Workflowy once you paste it.

I'll give it a shot for a bit. I'm a list person, and use Tasks almost as often as I use e-mail on Outlook. Thanks for the head's up.

9:49, You make excellent points. What we're seeing is the combination of Gov. William J. LePetomaine trying to save his phoney, baloney job driven by a bunch of scientifically illiterate media weasels. I should know. I'm a former North Texas media weasel.

That is all. Please carry on.

Green:
you seem to have fallen behind in evaluating new talent on local TV.
There is a new traffic gal on channel 8. I can't remember her name, but she bears an eerie resemblance to what Lohan would look like if she wasn't all tore up and skanky. There's an even newer one on channel 11. Her name is Whitney...something (Drolen?). Blonde, tallish, and jutting out in all the appropriate places. Verrry traffic-y!

I would search for them on the interwebs myself, but I have gotten used to being spoon-fed and you're responsible now for supplying me with a steady flow of fodder. Man, you liberally leaners have got it all figured out.
So, chop-chop - make with the pix...daddy needs a fix!

Paul Ryan busted for lying about whether or not he requested stimulus funds. You know, that stimulus money he has said was a waste of taxpayer money and an Obama boondoggle.

(And that he voted for.)

Killing the natural insects now only means more issues later. People who say, "yay", to spraying just to elimate West Nile do not know how bad it will be the next several seasons without the natural predetory insects.

Not to mention Pyrethroids are toxic to fish, bees and can cause respiratory issues with birds (including chickens).

Oh and the warning, "Stay inside during spraying times","wash your food/ garden" and "try to keep your animals inside" might mean it isn't that good for people, animals or food either.

I suspect the driver was topping a hill and did not have time to react to the cyclist..course the driver was prolly over his limit of booze and was afraid of being taken to jail..even though I don't believe it was the drivers fault. Still it is sad some people just don't care about the other guy.

Wordkyle needs to create an app called Wordflowy where you plug in a political topic and it automagically spits out links to articles, polls, or studies that could be linked into comments.

It was reported early in the trial of the Kennedale teacher that she told the students she could get in a lot of trouble and go to jail if they snitched her off. When you know the consequences and commit the crime anyway you deserve what you get. Having said that, this has GOT to be a probation case. So why was she taken into custody after the guilty verdict? Anyone?

Brewcrew said...

Even if Paul Ryan was against federal stimulus he would be a fool not to request available funds for his constituents. They would also crucify him at reelection if he didn't.

The jailers wanted to see if she would do that group thang with them!

If West Nile only kills a tiny percentage of the population and we have 15 dead, how many people are actually infected? A one time spray isn't going to wipe out the natural order of insects for years to come. We're just trying to get this thing under control. Besides, DFW has to be one of the worst polluters in the state. We spew carbon monoxide into the air with millions of vehicles. What's a little bug spray going to hurt?

Anonymous said...

So, it's OK if Ryan lies, because other people do? Aren't y'all the moral majority, or some shit like that?

And it's OK for Ryan to request the money because he wouldn't get elected if he didn't? So you can do anything if it helps you get elected, even if it's against your core values (although, he'd already compromised those values when he voted for the bailouts...)?

Y'all are sure not showing how you're different from the "radical" left y'all are crying about so much.

He wasn't. This super-conservative voted FOR it--both TARP and the auto bailout.
