Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

  • One thing I missed from the small-Kentucky-towns-lawyer-suicide story yesterday: "All were men, their average age 53, and most were trial lawyers."
  • Fleetwood Mac is at the AAC tonight. If Stevie Nicks is with them, I'd actually be interested. 
  • At my high school graduation, I didn't have any feeling of a sense of accomplishment. I did, however, know my life was changing forever. 
  • Our TV was locked on to the first game of the College Softball Championship last night and never once flipped over to Heat/Pacers. And it was fantastic.
  • Two incredibly funny pictures from the Heat/Pacers game, though: (1) Flo Rida's massive Jesus necklace, and (2) Justin Bieber looking like Justin Bieber (I swear The Fourth Grade Girl In The House could beat him to a pulp in under a minute.)
  • The Texas Lottery had to suspend its "All or Nothing" game because -- get this -- too many people were winning. Isn't there supposed to be a couple of math whizzes who work there?
  • The owners of GoGo Gumbo in Boyd have opened up a lunch place simply named "Canteen." Edit: Menu.
  • Ice and water dispenser in the door of the refrigerator? Greatest invention ever? But a question: The fridge has a stainless steel like finish. Any special tricks to clean it? Streaking seems to be an issue. 
  • So "America's Deadliest Sniper" claimed to have killed two guys at a gas station after they tried to steal his truck (an account that cannot be verified), and after Hurricane Katrina he allegedly "set up on top of the Superdome, and proceeded to shoot dozens of armed residents who were contributing to the chaos"?  
  • Dallas County is considering replacing its 24 year old courthouse. Wise County's courthouse is what? 116 years old?
  • The Dog In The House has now, after three years, decided to wake me up at 5:00 a.m. by standing on my chest and pawing my hair. 
  • I've never watched a single episode of Game Of Thrones but whatever happened on this week's episode caused the Internet to explode. 
  • The former strip club in Arlington called Fantasy Ranch will become a "Southern comfort food" restaurant named Bootay's House of Soul. Coincidence or comic genius?
