Random Thursday Morning Thoughts




  • We are hurling towards Idiocracy, and I admit that I might be a part of it. (See above photo.)
  • Yesterday we had a car explosion in Plano because of someone sniffing something and now we have the news that "Dry ice likely why Plano woman passed out" in her car.  
  • Don't go to Plano?
  • Actual headline of Fox 4 this morning at the bottom of the screen: "Crime Spree Stopped By Man With Pumpkin Carving Knife."
  • On the radio this morning I heard a reference to a Disney "record" of scary music for Halloween. I think I actually had that record as a child. 
  • I turned on Fox News last night and Bill O'Reilly and Barney Frank were screaming at each other. I actually turned it off. I was not entertained. 
  • If something is wrong with my gMail account there is a message off to the side that says, "Something is not right." 
  • Vehicles You Fear On The Road Ranking: (1) The double tractor trailer -- I saw a Fed Ex double trailer wrecked out in the median on our way to Abilene this morning, (2) The truck hauling cars - I always think one will fall off. 
  • I told Mrs. LL this weekend that Grace Kelly is the most gorgeous woman in the history of ever. And then after a frantic pause I told her, "After you." And to think I gave marriage advice. 
  • Speaking of, the Family House had the Internet go out but not the TV Internet feed for the first time ever. I went home to meet the tech guy yesterday who showed up (amazingly) in the window of time. I explained the problem, he does some tech stuff, and then looks at me and says, "This situation is weird. Let me hang around for five to ten minutes to check it out." Ummkay. 
  • And now, for the first time ever, the audio on the TV does not work. I was looking at this morning and had to go to closed caption. What's the saying? That silence can be deafening? I laughed when Simon and Garfunkle's Sound of Silence began to replay in my head -- which has the crazy/brilliant lyrics of, "Hello darkness my old friend."
