Random Friday Morning Thoughts

  • Headline yesterday: "Uber lost more than $1,000,000,000 in first half of year." There is absolutely no way that is true. No way. 
  • "When you're an adult, no one talks about their favorite color any longer." - Heard at the courthouse yesterday.
  • "Don't blog about this." - Three different people to me in the courthouse jury room before 10:00 a.m. yesterday.
  • I'm working on a new theory: No type of cream or ointment can impact pain that originates beneath the skin. 
  • I referenced the band Boston the other day after the guy was arrested for getting busy with his realtor while wearing a T-shirt sporting the same name. Get this: Boston's first album was released 40 years ago this week. Forty!!!!
  • Boston was the first band I ever saw in concert. Me and my buddies bought tickets from a scalper outside of the Tarrant County Convention Center for, if memory serves me correctly, $8.00 a piece. (I am 100% sure it was under $10.)
  • Tony Romo saying he's fine after his back injury last night means nothing. If he were honest, he'd quote Marsellus Wallace from Pulp Fiction after Butch asks him if he is OK. 
  • More than 50 were treated for messed up K2 in Austin. Once again, K2 was born in an effort to get around Texas outlawing a plant. You won't see that story in states that legalize marijuana. Speaking of . . . 
  • "Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he was not pleased to see a video that appears to show rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott at a marijuana dispensary just hours before Thursday's preseason game against the Seattle Seahawks." In Seattle, that's like walking into a 7-11 that sells beer. 
  • And while we are at it, I'd say throw this dog in the hoosegow. Rehab? You kidding me? We are a "no tolerance" state.:
    (Side note: I'm not falling for the put-on-a-tie-once-a-year routine)
  • There were 26 criminal appeals decided yesterday by the Fort Worth Court of Appeals. The defendant did not win a single one. 
  • Libby's is now producing single serving microwavable sweet whole kernel corn. I'm truly excited. Yes, my life has come to this.
