Random Monday Morning Thoughts

  • I watched some of Top Gun this weekend while channel surfing. How have I not realized that the dialogue in the movie is beyond awful?
  • The Star-Telegram's Mac Engel was on Fox 4 last night, and I am now convinced Mrs. LL is going to run off with him. Gal wouldn't stop staring at the screen and saying, "Hey, now."
  • We went to the batting cages on Friday, but I just went for the putting green that was right by it. I don't know why it was so funny to me, but Mrs. LL asked me "How was your putting?" as we were leaving.
  • We then let the Sophomore in the House drive us home through probably one of the most dangerous traffic areas in the metroplex. I was wearing a seat belt. In the back seat. While having a panic attack.
  • Sports oddities: On Saturday, TCU won a 22 inning game, and Baylor's softball team came back from 0-7 in the sixth inning for a win. 
  • A really interesting chart on the moral differences between Republicans and Democrats.
  • A faithful reader sent me a picture of this sign from a topless club in Burleson. Edit: Link fixed.
  • Alice of The Brady Bunch has died. 
  • So Donald Sterling's wife tries to sell the Clippers by claiming her husband is "mentally incapacitated" and, we now learn, agreed to "indemnify" the NBA from any lawsuits? Doesn't that pretty much prove the NBA is in cahoots with her in this scheme? The league is setting itself up to be sued into oblivion. 
  • I watched part of the induction ceremony of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and my life force was sucked out of me when I saw Peter Gabriel doing choreographed dance moves to In Your Eyes (a song I mentioned a couple of weeks ago as being very spiritual and moving.)  I then saw a song performed by Bonnie Raitt, Emmy Lou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Sheryl Crow and Carrie Underwood. Carrie Underwood!!!???
  • I couldn't tell you anything about NASCAR or hockey. 
  • I never thought I'd see the day where J.D. Clark is mentioned more in the Messenger that Andrew Rottner. 
  • I have a weird habit of saying "There's nothing wrong with [insert name]" instead of just saying someone is good.
  • The first entry today in the Update almost made me insane with the references to, I presume, bull names. 
  • We traded three Guantanamo Bay prisoners for a military hostage? Mark Davis said this morning the hostage didn't have "an ounce of honor" in him if he had a choice in that agreement.
