Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I've never been in a Costco, but one is coming at 287 and I-35.
  • My blinker won't automatically shut off once I make a turn. That's a beating. 
  • Another twenty-something with a teenager over the weekend, but this one prompts an Amber Alert. 
  • The mother of Mrs. LL's ex-husband died over the weekend. Despite my fears, she never met me without having open arms and a smile. Gem of a lady. 
  • It's really my first experience with kids around and the concept of death. I'm learning more than I'm teaching. 
  • I think Mrs. LL is obsessed with The Good Wife. From what I've seen, it's a toned down Ally McBeal. And, like most lawyer shows, a case goes from initial meeting to trial in a blink of an eye.
  • My point of the Joel Osteen post below was that I question his cause and effect analysis. 
  • The guy whose legs being blows away which was famously captured by a photographer opened a hockey game this weekend.
  • Greg Williams' blog is more scorched earth than I thought it would be.  
  • The Bangladesh death count from the building collapse is now at 622.
  • I've watched Caddyshack a million times but it still makes me laugh. (It was on one of the cable channels this weekend.)
  • The Family Cat loves making a bee line for the bathroom whenever the door is open. She likes to sit in the sink. So goofy. 
  • The clouds yesterday afternoon were like the opening of The Simpsons. 
  • From the You've-Got-To-Be-Kidding-Me Department: .The founder of Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation, Nancy Brinker, "made $684,717 in fiscal 2012, a 64 percent jump from her $417,000 salary from" the year before. The next time you think about paying an entry fee for one of those races, remember that.
