Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • Fantastic article in this weekend's Dallas Morning News about a fake rich guy who committed suicide. (And I know that sounds horrible to call it "fantastic".)
  • Sports: (1) I was so confident that I went back to putting up Christmas lights outside during the second half of the Baylor/Tech game only to come back later to realize Baylor almost got beat, (2) College Game Day is going to Baylor! Really surprising since ESPN seems to have an anti-Baylor bias, (3) Nebraska fires its coach even though he has won at least nine games every year? (4) The NFL has too much parity. (5) No one yells more than Dez Bryant. No one is ignored more than Dez Bryant. 
  • Mrs. LL will watch really disturbing horror movies and never flinch.
  • Speaking of horror, the Elf on the Shelve is back in the house. The guy loves doing bits. 
  • I thought I was kidding about becoming Clark Griswold this weekend, but I seriously became Clark Griswold this weekend. I was connecting extension cords looking up to appreciate my brilliant design only to see half the lights not come on. 
  • BagofNothing got handsy (pic) with a UT cheerleader? He has a UT jacket? 
  • Two things that I think are lies: (1) That this is "Cyber Monday", and (2) that Thanksgiving Eve is one of the biggest party nights at clubs of the year.
  • Mrs. LL and I have a theory of "pretend consumer product insurance." I exercised it this weekend when I went out to buy stakes for the yard Christmas lights. I was really sure I had enough but I decided to spend $3.95 for an extra box to be absolutely certain. I pretend someone walks buy and ask, "Would you buy a $3.95 insurance policy to make sure you have all you need?"
  • Can a person be convicted of a threat on Facebook when he quotes rap lyrics? The elderly Supreme Court faces that question today.
  • And note that was a federal conviction. For all of you Tea Party constitution loving folks, do you know how far we've gotten from "Congress shall make no law  . . . abridging the freedom of speech"? That is without qualification There is no exception. If a state wants to do so, fine. But the federal government was told to not touch the subject. 
  • Saw a kid riding his bike by the house this weekend who was singing, "Let it go!!!"
  • A lady who just happens to be African America walked by with her dog when I was putting up Christmas lights. The dog was friendly and jumped on me. "What's his name?" I asked. "Snoop," she said.

BG, don't you realize you're making a huge carbon footprint when you use up energy for Christmas lights?

What kind of progressive liberal are you, anyhow?

8:57, didn't Barry ignore a leaking toilet flap over the past two months and in doing so caused additional environmental problems?

BG, I'd imagine the "Tea Party constitution loving folks" are at least as aware of government overreach as you are. That's sort of their raison d'ĂȘtre.

you sound like you have no idea how insurance works. You have a tangible item in your hand in case you need it. You paid for it - once, and it's yours now to use how you see fit.
In the real insurance world, you pay for something in case you need it. You may never need it, but you still have to pay for a percentage of it - over and over again.
If you think a four dollar box of lights is the same as product insurance, extrapolate it for other products. Buy an extra refrigerator in case yours is filled up

You are an attorney and are not one of the constitution loving folks? Sell insurance.

I had to catch myself about water restrictions in Wise County when I realized he doesn't live in Wise County. Let that toilet leak baby

How about the thug Shawn Oakman for Baylor. Did you miss his knee to the head of the Tech QB?

Oakman was dismissed from Penn State. I know that's not saying much but he sure found a home with Briles thugs.

Bridgeport basketball still not in the top 25 TABC poll. Decatur still at 17. Wake me up when Bridgeport has actually done something. Looks like a patsy schedule to me too.

Are you sure? Because if that's the case, I guess we can all get back to screaming "FIRE" in the movie theater once again.

Stay Classy

Texas seems to have more t-shirt fans than any other school and his so-called jacket looks like nothing more than a cheap windbreaker.

Barry Christmas everybody! Have yourself a Barry little Christmas!

There are African Americans in Decatur?

That was an interesting article about the fake rich guy. I had not heard the story. I was surprised to see a name I knew, when I was in high school, Tally's father, grandmother, and great-grandfather all over-paid me for yard work and other chores so I could save money to be able to afford to go to college. I wish the kid would have gotten better guidance, her father tragically died young. The commenters who paint her as a kid living the country club lifestyle, probably have never been to Perryton.

Or the Texas Tech play who targeted Baylor QB and gave him a concussion... who wasn't called for it.

Barry is an Al Gore mini-me. He loves to point out others and their excesses concerning natural resource exploitation --but when it comes to the old pot/kettle argument becomes a wilting lily.
Barry jerk those water guzzling toilets out and go with the in-vogue composting models that moonbats extoll. You ain't got a hair on your azz if you don't.

The Longhorns are Wal Mart's team....you can get beer coolers, shirts, socks, pajamas, stickers, stadium seats and probably toilet seats at Wal Mart....all in that ugly orange. Winning football programs.....sorry...out of luck. If you wear Longhorn junk, we know you have been to Wal Mart!!

Walmart sales were unexpectedly low for a Black Friday weekend. With the butt-kickings that the Cowgirls and Shorthorns took, the t-shirt fans didn't know what to do.
