Bag of Randomness

  • I have a feeling the Cowboys are going to play a very sloppy game this Sunday.
  • There’s a pothole commercial that is driving me insane.  Basically some car gets a flat after running over a pothole and then the pothole starts to talk like a drunk Britney Spears.
  • I really don’t want to put up a Christmas tree this year.
  • With Obama in office, I expect to be getting a lot of email forwards about how he is responsible for taking Christ out of Christmas.
  • I get a lot of extreme right-wing email forwards which gives me tired head, and a lot of them are pretty silly, but the silliest I think is one that said that Obama wanted to negotiate with Somali pirates.
  • I found out that if you leave a comment on this website using an iPhone browser that it won’t display, and I don’t have a clue on how to fix it.
  • Some of the four way stops in my neighborhood now have traffic lights which doesn’t make me happy.
  • You may recall that I bought a new AC unit this summer.  The other night we tried to turn on the heat but it never came on.  Turns out the AC part was installed correctly, but not the heating part.
  • I’ve been watching the V on ABC – it started off strong but is losing steam.
  • This book staircase makes me dizzy.
  • Father only speaks Klingon to son for first three years of his life
  • Sarah Palin’s ‘Going Rogue’ as Christian Literature
  • Friday Night Lights has just been exceptional this season.
  • R2-D2 in the new Star Trek
  • This is a pretty good idea – a website about sharing stuff, like tools, with other neighbors, but I think it’s only based in California for now.
  • It appears WifeGeeding has finally settled upon a doctor for all this pregnancy/baby stuff.
  • She’s only about 12 weeks, but she’s got a decent bump and has gained about 14 pounds, I think.
  • I’m glad The Daily Show will put a full interview online if it can’t fit it during its air time.
  • That girl from the Twilight movies has really bad posture.
  • I wonder if Jay Leno understands that having celebrities drive through a car course isn’t really that entertaining.
  • The Texas Governor’s race continues to get more interesting with Dick Cheney endorsing Kay Baily Hutchinson and Sarah Palin endorsing Rick Perry.  Man, I just don’t know who to vote for.
  • 15 Google Interview Question – with answers
  • I read that one of my friends and his wife read the entire Bible in just a little over 90 days.  Link
  • The average age of a member of the United Methodist Church is 57 – the church has now set a goal to lower that average by a decade in a decade.  Link Yes, I did find that interesting, but the one thin that stood out to me the most was the name of the Bishop quoted in the article, Larry Goodpaster.  Yes, spelled different than the profession, but still interesting.

    ummmm just a piece of friendly advice and maybe she's ok with it but mostly we don't like this….:) newbie mistake….GRACE

    I did take a one-day break to spend time with Bono and SirGeeding…

    14lbs and only 12 weeks along? From my experience this could mean two things and one of them is multiples. The other is she is eating waaaay too much potato salad. I kid, but maybe she is further along than she thinks cause even at 12 weeks a "significant bump" is not the norm. Or she could be growing the world's largest baby in which you will get into the Guiness book of world records and your blog is going to blow up!!

    I've been hit and miss for a while (darn Facebook!), and apparently I've missed the days you mentioned your wife's pregnancy. Congratulations!

    As far as size of the baby bump and the time lapsed, I'd have to agree with Petri Dish. Most women don't begin showing until nearly their 5th month in their first pregnancy. Has she had an ultrasound yet to rule out multiples or to confirm the age?

    Looking forward to the journey!

    -I think I might need that staircase-bookcase thingy. It would help out with the library that I'm building up; that plus New York living space does not bode well for me. Perhaps I'll be the old woman that dies by a book avalanche, surrounded by 20 corgis.

    -I also think the girl in Twilight looks like someone's punched her square in the face; resulting in the always looks surprised/confused face.

    I normally watch Jay, just because I can come and go from the show (get ready for bed, etc) and not miss anything important as I would in a drama series. That said, Jay has a number of bits that just don’t work and he ought to drop them. The hybrid race car is gag that’s worn out its entertainment value. I read last week that Jay said he was willing to go back to the old 10:30 start time if NBC asks him to do so. For me, that is the signal that Leno is waving the white flag: he is not going to make it in this time slot and it is unlikely he will be able to turn it around

    The average age for Lutherans at 57 is probably an indication that America is following the European trend toward a more secular culture. A few weeks ago, during mass in my Catholic parish, the pastor remarked that a huge percentage of Catholics were dropping out when they reached teenage years and only a few could be expected to return, usually not until their fifties. I don’t see any reason to believe routine Christian church service will ever be restored in Europe

    The more the sports columnists and radio personalities downplay the Redskins, the more I begin to worry about another Cowboy collapse. Wade just does not seem to be able to get them up for easy games. On ESPN radio this morning the football analysts at the national level were talking about which NFL franchises were the most desirable for coaches currently available and the Cowboys and Steelers were two listed the highest, despite Jerrys penchant for meddling.

    Talking about Obama taking the blame, this afternoon some of the cable news shows were complaining Obama had not wrung enough concessions from the Chinese on his visit. They even went on to complain he should have done more improve on human rights violations. We send an American president to China, which has lent us $1.4 trillion to finance our budget, and then expect him, as a visitor, to get up in their grill about how they treat political dissent in their sovereign country?!

    It's great to keep up with wife geeding's pregnancy! We just found out last week we are pregnant as well. We're about 5 weeks along with our first and are very excited! Thanks for all the baby info links as well!

    Twins?! Twin boys?? "Bag of Nothing and Sons" ??

    Jay Leno may get the celebrity race course idea from the BBC show top gear.
