Bag of Randomness

  • One of my single friends who is an elementary teacher was buying supplies at Targer for her students because she teaches at an economically disadvantaged school in Dallas.  While in the checkout line the couple behind her noticed the school supplies and asked how many children she has and she just replied that she was buying these for her students as she’s a teacher . . . the couple ended up buying all the supplies for her.
  • I have a 401k that is still managed by Lockheed Martin, well, technically ING, but you get what I’m saying.  Yesterday in the mail I received from them a CD which  has my summary plan description.  I would have preferred either an email or a letter with just a web address.
  • Baptist Press – LifeWay Research found that 80 percent of those who attend church one or more times a month believe they have a personal responsibility to share their faith, but 61 percent have not told another person about how to become a Christian in the previous six months.  It’s my belief that people should have a personal responsible to actually live their faith; that their faith, words, and works are acts representative of Christ, and the gospel is shared by and through grace and not in a judgmental-beat-you-over-the-head-with-a-Bible sort of way, or the Christ option is better than the spending eternity in Hell option.  Too often, well intended evangelicals are too focused and on trying to “spread the word” they lose focus on the real message of grace and forger to actually work on their own personal relationship with Christ.
  • When I first saw Kyle Orton in a Cowboys uniform last night I thought he looked just like Babe Laufenberg in a Cowboys uniform.  Unfortunately, from what I saw, he played like Laufenberg.
  • Nike is now outfitting NFL teams, and I could tell some particular differences in the Cowboys uniform.  Overall they are tighter on the players, and there are some unique stitching that I thought really stood out on our Romo’s uniform.  Speaking of Romo and his uniform, I never liked how long his sleeves are.
  • Funniest moment last night was the Monday Night Football commercial that starts off with Jerry Jones sitting all alone in his Cowboys Stadium suite in comfy chair next to a table full of remotes watching a game on the Jerrytron.
  • The camera was on Jerry for a little bit last night and it looked like he had a weird case of the shakes.  I bet we start seeing some health questions soon.
  • Anyone know why KTVT just streamed the ESPN feed?  Usually we Silver Star network and the local folks do the preseason games.
  • On Sunday we dove to check out the town WifeGeeding use to teach in, which has a population of a little of 7,000.  Who knows what the future will hold for us, but we’ll probably just end up staying put.  I don’t think there’s another place that has as many breastaraunts as my current location.  My research tells me there are six of them within a 2.5 miles.  Not to mention, we just got a Five Guys and a Freebirds in the neighborhood.  Throw in a closer Fuzzy’s Tacos and Braum’s and I’m here for life.
  • Never thought I’d say this, but Fuzzy’s breakfast tacos are so much better that a Whataburger taquito.
  • I’m not much for drinking, but I’m on a sangria kick.
  • I wish I had the courage to move out of state just to experience something new for a while.
  • A website for owners of license plates dedicated to the band U2.  And no, I’m not a member.
  • Paul Ryan’s Politifact profile
  • What it takes to become a write-in candidate in the Texas general election – signatures, paperwork, and filing fees.
  • Jiroemon Kimura is the last living person born in the 1800’s.
  • Little known fact . . . the first NBA game was played in Canada.
  • From the Dallas Observer – The 100 Best Texas Songs

    I was kinda shocked that KTVT didn't have local announcers. I was expecting Brad and Babe (for the 15 minutes I watched).

    Kimura is the only man left from the 1800s, but there are at least a dozen women from that century still alive.…
