The Campaign For DA


Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • I'm still battling sickness, but I think I may have turned the corner. Note to self: Don't try to run a Turkey Trot when you are sick. It will not end well.
  • I'm probably not as sick as Tony Romo is this morning.
  • I went and saw a doctor a couple of days ago who just happens to be African American and who has the attitude Wanda Sykes. We actually had a mini-war between the two of us and she said at least twice, "Don't you cut your eyes at me!" as I looked at her with slight disdain. (Even though she did tell me to, "Walk down the hallway past those people and turn around and come back" in which I told her "No, I will not." She replied with an angry voice of a black woman, "Oh, yes, you WILL." I did it.) I love that woman.
  • There is one person in this world who thinks I'm faking this illness. I don't know how that is possible. And, as someone can confirm, you do not want to be in my figurative cross-hairs.
  • If you camp out for Black Friday, you aren't very smart. 
  • The floors in my house are a mess and haven't been replaced in 15 years. We had an independent contractor come over to give us an estimate to replace them and he was fascinating. Somehow we ended up talking about Costa Rica and I learned he had been to the same small village Mrs. LL and I stayed in years ago. He was an older an unusual guy and obviously a former hippie. I had a bizarre "feeling" and actually asked him if he was part of the book "In Search of Captain Zero: A Surfer's Road Trip Beyond the End of the Road." He denied it but I'm not sure I believe him because he paused a little too long. The "end of the road" part of the title refers to the obscure village.
  • Georgia Sheriff is catching some heat:
  • The Texas Tech/Texas game was beyond fantastic. And the little-guy-hiding-behind-the-line play that Tech used to seal the game may have been one of the most fantastic things I've ever seen. (And watching Coach Bro celebrate made me smile.)
