Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • The new Puppy In The House is fawned over so much I expect her to stand up and announce, "I am Kim Jong-un!"
  • Ted Cruz for President rumors over the last couple of days? If he does, it will be the biggest wake up call ever for the Far Right. He'd get crushed on the national stage. 
  • Do guys wear cologne? That just seems like a very 1980s concept. 
  • Dennis Prager rant of the day: Yesterday he spent 30 minutes telling his audience, very authoritatively by the way, that referring to your son as "buddy" undermines the parent's authority because the term signifies equality.  (I know my Prager rants are a very inside issue with me, but I love the passion of his defenders on here.)
  • If a horse could ever be a "Hey, Now."
  • Lost in the news of the FDA allowing the Morning After Pill to be sold over the counter to those 15 and above: The FDA did so because a court ruling made them do so, and the Justice Department announced it would appeal the ruling. 
  • Breaking this morning: The unemployment rate fell to 7.5%. Obama will always have his critics, but the economy will always have a check mark in his favor. 
  • Notice that I didn't say one negative thing about George W while his library was being opened?
  • Amanda Bynes is crazy. 
  • I've always been jazzed by Natalie Portman. The other morning as I was getting ready for work, Ms. LL was almost giggly as she had stumbled upon a very racy scene of her's from Closer on the TV.  Once I realized it was on, I got to fire off the line, "Ain't nobody got time for that!"
  • [Sidenote: Is "her's"  proper in that sentence? It is possessive, right? And is it clear that "her's" refers to Portman and not Mrs. LL?]
  • A tweet by Fox 4's Good Day this morning: "Go home winter weather . . . . you're drunk (again)."
  • I'm a huge fan of gMail and have been for a decade. The filtering and labeling functions are fantastic and it might be the greatest spam blocker ever. I just checked my Spam folder and had 22 emails in it gathered from the last 30 minutes. 
  • If you travel to Fort Worth on 287 and look to your right once you get past Rhome, you can see a HUGE power line being erected for about 10 miles. What an eyesore. 
  • I had a lawyer ask me why I didn't sell ads on here. I told him I'd thought about it, but didn't want to go through the hassle. "It might be more profitable than being a lawyer," he said. 
  • A flipped over to the Rangers game last night to see fans freezing in the stands with their puppy dogs on Dog Night. How miserable. 
  • Greg "The Hammer" Williams is launching "Greggo's Gigantic Blog and Cafe" at noon today and, based upon his twitter feed, this could be very Wheels Off.
