Bag of Randomness


  • I think it was around this time of year the Sears Wishbook would be delivered in the mail and I would instantly turn to the toy section.
  • I remember in on Cheers episode that Cliff was complaining about work because it was Sears Wishbook delivery day.  I never thought about things from a mailman’s perspective before.
  • From my earliest memory to the day our family left our house in Mineral Wells, we had the same mailman.  As a kid, he use to give us candy when we checked the mail.  It must be nice to be able to become a part of a community’s life just for doing a job.
  • The copy machine, if you really think about it, is a really amazing device.
  • I was reading an article that touches on what the current perception of the GOP, with all the birthers, tea-baggers, and everything else, but his one part stood out:  One veteran GOP official puts it bluntly: “The image of a bunch of white guys booing an African-American president is about as bad as it gets.
  • I’m not saying any white Republican president never got booed, but that liar shout-out is going to stick in the minds of many minorities, and with our changing demographics where whites will no longer be the majority, it’s the perception of things that will haunt the GOP.  There’s a lot of good people on the right, it’s the the vocal minority that hurts them.
  • Last comment on the liar shout out since it’s now a week old . . . I wish I knew the story behind this picture.  It’s just so well placed, I don’t know how the photographer was able to grab that moment and knew how to focus on that one particular person out of everyone else in that session.  I’m not saying it was planned, maybe it was a high-resolution picture and was cropped.  I dunno.
  • I’m waiting for the far right to jump over Obama for calling Kayne a jackass.
  • I was told that the electricity bill for the Jerrytron costs $600 an hour.
  • I was also told that when the roof is opened, the glass doors at the ends have to be opened at the same time otherwise they will crack because of air pressure.
  • I bet shoelaces carry a lot of germs.
  • Taylor Swift says she sings country music.  If that’s country music coming out of her mouth, then I’m Merle Haggard.
  • “How I Learned to Accept ‘Under God’ in the Pledge of Allegiance and Stop Losing Elections”
  • The mafia sinks a ship with nuclear waste?
  • It’s been interesting listening to people comment about the Michael Jordon Basketball Hall of Fame speech.
  • One of my coworkers used her flight privileges to fly to Chicago to attend the U2 concert.  She gave me very positive reviews.
  • The other day I was at Target in the mens section and noticed someone returned a package of underwear.  It was discounted of course, but that’s one item I didn’t think a store would accept a return on.  I’ll tell you what, I wouldn’t buy returned underwear.
  • I went out to lunch with CoWorkerBrian at Fernando’s yesterday in Dallas.  He ordered a Dr Pepper, but it didn’t taste right, so he asked the waiter for a Sprite.  The waiter looked at his drink, and then actually took a drink out of the glass, made a face as if it didn’t taste right, smiled, and walked away to get the Sprite.  That whole time CoWorkerBrian kept an eye on the waiter to make sure he got a new glass.
  • Patrick Swayze was referenced in hip-hop more than I thought.
  • Another fun Google tool – Google Fast Flip – What people are reading now.
  • “All you have to do is follow three simple rules.  One, never underestimate your opponent.  Two, take it outside.  And three, be nice.”  Dalton, Roadhouse.

    How do you know you haven’t?

    When I hear the intensity of hatred for the President and see how some of these extreme right wingers attempt to marginalize the respect for his office, I worry about his safety.
    Yesterday I heard an argument that Congressman Wilson shouldn’t be admonished because it just makes him more popular with a certain element of his party. Still, I believe the House needed to enforce a standard of what is not acceptable when someone is speaking on the floor. I realize it’s acceptable in the House of Commons, but, jeez, they have National Health Care over there too
