Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I had always heard about the shocking ending to The Cabin In The Woods, so I finally watched it over the weekend. It was beyond horrible.
  • One of life's mysteries is that Mrs. LL sees no humor in Arrested Development. It is so frustrating. 
  • But she was locked in to Behind the Candelabra on HBO on Saturday. Michael Douglas is great in whatever he does.
  • And now to lower the bar: We saw The Hangover III at the 7th Street Movie Tavern on Saturday. Verdict: They just keep getting worse (with the exception of the last 15 minutes which were shockingly funny.)
  • I don't see the Star-Telegram's paywall.  I mean, it no longer appears when I visit the site. 
  • The New Puppy In The House is now able to walk and run. Mrs. LL will take it for a short walk down the street and literally stops traffic because of its cuteness. 
  • CBS 11 says that the storm shelter business is booming in Decatur.
  • There was a moment the other day where I caught myself watching The Kids laughing as they jumped on the trampoline while the dogs were running around in joyful glee. This is life, right?
  • I saw a 40 Something lady at the softball park in a sun dress. She was pretty dignified but she had a ton of tattoos. It was one of those "what will she think when she gets older" one of moments. That time has arrived. Yu Darvish struck out 14 and lost?
  • Rick Perry paid a visit to the world's oldest WWII veteran (107 years old) yesterday and gave him a bottle of whiskey. I would think the casualty count of The War is high enough.
  • The alleged drug cartel hit in Southlake Town Square is more shocking after a few days have passed. 
  • Lake Bridgeport is now down 19 feet. 
  • "PHOENIX — A federal judge ruled on Friday that Sheriff Joe Arpaio and his deputies had violated the constitutional rights of Latinos by targeting them during raids and traffic stops here and throughout Maricopa County." I wonder if Republican presidential candidates will continue to kiss his ring or realize he's hurting their cause as he parades as the last living dinosaur?
  • Do young people still go to the Colonial golf tournament? 
  • I don't play any online/app games but I almost got addicted to "Dots" this weekend. The most simple of games has exploded over the last month. Remember: Squares begat squares.
  • An ice/water dispenser it the door of a new refrigerator? Maybe the greatest invention in the history of ever. 
  • Very funny: JC Penney sells a tea kettle that looks like Hitler. Wait. What?
  • The legend of Chris Kyle becomes more and more muddied. It seem that his war hero status gives him immunity from being called a liar.
