Bag of Randomness

  • I haven’t hand waxed a car since I was a teen.  My gosh, now that I think about it, it’s been about two decades since I hand waxed a car by myself.  Anywho, I gave it a try yesterday only to be interrupted by two neighbors.  One of those neighbors has a wife that is going in for surgery regarding her breast cancer this week, and the other let me know for the first time that his son died in a drive-by shooting as a Texas Tech student back in March.  The wax got pretty darn hard during all my talking and the sun actually set, but I think talking to my neighbors was well worth the hard wax dilemma.
  • I’ve lived in Lewisville for just about a decade and have never visited Sneaky Pete’s.  I’m just not a lake guy.
  • From my house, the Dallas County line is probably just a few hundred yards, if that.  We heard planes flying about a hundred feet from the ground doing their West Nile mosquito spraying thing.
  • We at at Randy White’s BBQ the other day.  The BBQ was decent, but the line was extremely slow for being so short, and I couldn’t figure out why.  I mean, it was insanely slow.
  • I noticed rice was an available side but couldn’t figure out if it was a Spanish rice, some kind of pilaf, or something else.  When I asked the guy behind the counter if that was Spanish rice, he just smile and pointed to the rice and said, “Rice.”  When I asked what kind of rice, he did the same thing.  We played that game a few more rounds and I just gave up and realized he didn’t speak a lick of English.
  • I noticed they had a bit of a Pancho’s raise the flag thing going, except with Texas flags.
  • It’s not a breastaraunt or anything, but one of their female employees looked like a younger version of Erin Andrews.
  • With every meal you get free ice cream and peach cobbler, and hot steamed towels are also readily available.
  • I guess saying hot and steamed is being a bit redundant.  But then again, so is saying cheddar cheese . . . is there any other kind of cheese . . . or tuna fish . . . there’s only one kind of tuna.
  • I watched The Hunger Games over the weekend.  To be honest, I enjoyed the Wikipedia write up about the book much better than the movie.
  • The Container Store sure does like their prices.  I wanted to buy some wall shelving for my home office and it was going to cost me over $200.  The next day I went to my local Ace Hardware and bought almost the same thing for $35.
  • Legitimate rape?
  • It looks like the Vatican is trying to gently persuade Mattel to make a bald Barbie.
  • Brett Favre’s debut as a high school coordinator resulted in a 64-6 win.
  • Bono and Edge may have put on some weight, but I think Bono should avoid the yellow jeans.
  • LOST Baby Nursery Is Dharma Initiative Approved - For us fans of the old television serious, they did a great creative job.  I mean, not only do they have Dharma Initiative baby food, but the Ocean planes circling above the crib was the icing on the cake.
