Bag of Randomness

  • WifeGeeding’s best friend is an FBI agent in Washington D.C.  WifeGeeding has been wanting to visit her, and she’s been a bit homesick from Texas.  Since I found a great round trip airfare I sent WifeGeeding to our nation’s capital from Friday to today.
  • While she was out, I baked a pound cake for my team as a bit of a going away presnt, it may have been the first cake I ever baked:
  • October is breast cancer awareness month, which means you’ll see many in the NFL wearing pink this month.  Out of all the cancers, it sure does seem like breast cancer gets the most attention, and although that is important, I’m not sure how I feel about that.
  • One interesting and entertaining part of about October being breast cancer awareness month is hearing individuals say “I’m supporting breast cancer” or some derivative when they actually mean “I’m supporting breast cancer awareness.”  Seriously, this happens all this time, and hardly anyone catches it.
  • The Rutgers suicide is without a doubt tragic, but I wonder how much of his suicide dealt with being gay?  I have no knowledge of the situation other than what’s been reported, but  think knowing a sexual encounter being streamed online with no doubt other people recording it or getting screen prints all orchestrated by the person you lived with had to be a factor, even it if was heterosexual.
  • I caught some of the Redskins/Eagles game and the amount of hard hits the Skins delivered were something else.  Speaking of that game, how could that Eagles received not catch that hail mary?
  • Part of me is actually happy the Longhorns have lost two games this year as it takes any emotional attachment I have for the rest of the season.   Well, other than that A&M game, of course.
  • It cost me about $500 to repair the car I don’t like.  Man, I really want a new ride, but the ‘smart’ thing to do is to keep it.  Several hundred dollars here and there is better than being locked into several hundred dollars each month for the next three to five years.
  • One thing I’ve learned over the years is that nine out of ten times it’s best to hold off on replying to an email, no matter if it’s one that makes you upset or one that is friendly.  I use to have the tendency that I had to reply right away, but if I let the message sink in a little bit, my replies have more substance and clarity.
  • Kanye West had two great visually stunning performances on SNL.
  • It wasn’t until last night that learned that Melinda Gates, the wife of Bill, was a Dallas native.
  • The Tiger Woods photo (that deals with golf) that will be on every blog today.
  • Twitter’s new design is based upon the Golden Ratio
  • The way the Vdara hotel in Las Vegas is built, it creates a death ray using the sun
  • Gillette decides to sell cheap razors to India
  • A Domino’s that delivers a breakfast pizza
  • If you are into classic starlets

    The departure of Vick following a running play was always the main reason everyone criticized Andy Reid for picking Vick over Kolb as a starter…the guy can be reckless. That's really a strange dude in the Tiger Wood's photo [on the right side, wearing a turban, and smoking a cigar]. "October is breast cancer awareness month, which means you’ll see many in the NFL wearing pink this month". I tuned in late to the NFL on Sunday and at first I couldn't figure out why some of the players were wearing pink shoes.
