Random Monday Morning Thoughts



  • I watched a little of Joel Osteen yesterday. Let me tell you the formula: "You might be having financial troubles. You might have been in a relationship you shouldn't have been in. You might be suffering from some type of addiction. You might have have said something to a family member you shouldn't have." What? You are trying to connect to 99% of your audience? 
  • If you are a fan of The Office you understand "That's what she said."  Hey, it's a tired bit and I've retired it. But then, on Saturday,  Mrs. LL made a comment about a burrito she brought home. I pinched my lips together. She saw what was going through my mind and then bombarded me with innuendos. I'm not sure I have laughed so hard in years.
  • We are re-watching Breaking Bad and it's better than I remembered. And I thought it was great the first time. 
  • I'm convinced that the new Family Pup #2 is mentally challenged. It may be the dumbest animal I've ever seen. Every time you see her, she looks up with this expression of "Who are you?" Hey, pup!!! I'm the one who saved you from traffic!!!!
  • It's a weird phenomenon when the Kids In The House start making incredibly witty/funny comments. Hey, don't grow up!!!
  • Meathead Rob Lowe is my favorite Rob Lowe.
  • Sports: Going for it on 4th down now seems in vogue -- and I'm a huge fan.
  • BagOfNothing is revealing more about his sex life this morning. If any of you guys want to form a posse and join me to confront him later today, let me know. He's putting way too much pressure on us. 
  • No one seems like they've grown up in, and still lives in, a bubble more than Mike Huckabee.
  • Mrs. LL yells at me when she walks in and sees me steaming because I've been watching Fox News. 
  • I hate January.

January blows and February is not much better.

Yes Barry, don't think the mindset of walking in finding a child doing something constructive should be rewarded with yelling. If a person of limited reasoning is doing something worthwhile even if it is not absorbed --then he should be rewarded- not scolded. Positive affirmation is shown to be much more effective.

Y'know, the phrase "Fox News" gets thrown around a lot by Liberals. It's a whole network, not just a single show. What gets you so steamed? Their news, their commentators' opinions, or that they get to express their opinions? If it's frustration at what you consider imbalanced coverage, then welcome to how Conservatives feel toward the rest of the mainstream media.

I'm a die hard conservative, and even I agree with you about Mike Huckabee.

I can easily see that guy fitting in on The Lawrence Welk Show.

Yes Joel Osteen is more about making money for himself and getting himself and his wife glory than they are about actually preaching the Bible to people. He makes everyone think that, if they give money to him and his church, then they will prosper. If they are not prospering then it is because they are not doing enough for his church.

Osteen is nothing but the modern-day Oral Roberts or Jim Bakker.

Did the bag of nothing guy really reference a spreadsheet used to keep track of their "relations"?

Skeeter said...

As of last night, I've got my relations average up to once every 1.9791 days.

Four days seems like a pretty good random sample, so I'm going to stop counting now.

Osteen's grand plan - "spread the net really wide, thin out the Word so that it doesn't offend anyone, and help people feel good about themselves and call it faith."

Don't forget to smile real big so that everyone feels loved.

Katy Anders said...

I believe it is fairly widely accepted that Osteen is really just a motivational speaker.

There's nothing at wrong with going to see a motivational speaker in a basketball stadium every week, especially so long as you realize that's what it is.

My only problem with Osteen is that his church-like facility (a couple miles from my house) leads to some serious traffic issues on Sundays for me.

God wants you to be happy and successful, Barry!

I can't imagine Huckabee is so delusional to believe, even with the power of God almighty, he has any real shot at becoming PoTUS. Huckabee is either ready to retire or had a hint his show was being cancelled and figured resigning, to explore another bid for PoTUS, would give him an extra 15mins of fame.

I love January, what is wrong with you? The snow is awesome and there aren't many tourists, to mess up the mountain.

I hate to be the grammar police, but it is "have" not "of". It drives me crazy that people don't even know their own language.

BRIDGEPORT BASKETBALL TALK

Why in the world does the messenger have Decatur as the headline in Sports with a large photo and Bridgeport stuck in the bottom? You've got what is probably the best basketball team to ever play in Wise County over on the west side, and we still have to see Decatur on the front?

No disrespect to Decatur who is a really good team and obviously well coached, but this is Bridgeport's time.

Last, why does Decatur take it so personal that these kids went to Bridgeport? They just can't understand why everyone doesn't want to be in Decatur. And for all the "unfair move-in" talk, tell me where these kids could have gone to high school and played that you would be okay with. They wanted to go to public school. They chose Bridgeport. Get over it. It makes you look pathetic when somehow Decatur thinks this has anything to do with them. Instead of hating, just get on board and enjoy what could be a fun ride for wise county basketball.

Barry, you need to get another dog so you can stay warm in January. The Eskimos understood cold and knew what a three dog night was.

Everyone knows the paper should be named the Decatur Messenger instead of the Wise County Messenger. It's been that way for decades.

Anonymous said...

1111...any idiot knows that the WC Messenger protects certain citizens and props up the DISD school system.

Yeah, what 11:38 said. Because two (dogs) can be as bad as one...

January? Its a great month. New Year's is a great time. CFB is rocking, the NFL Playoffs are on. Deer hunting season continues for a couple of more weeks. Cold weather... its a great month.

Barry, is amateur night; oops I mean New Years Eve typically a big revenue generator for you?

Or is it the one night of the year the cops back off?

TIA

RTG is already a repeat, but I don't mind one bit. Hips for months.

Decatur is the last school in Texas to cry foul when another school imports talent.

"Move ins" have been living with host families for years.

I only read the Index. The Messenger is a rag for Decatur.

Anonymous said...

The problem with the Messenger is that it calls itself the "Wise County" paper. It's clearly not. Man up and call yourself the Decatur paper, because that's what you are.
