  • I’m still not over this sinus infection that’s gotten the better of me since the first week of November, despite three rounds of different antibiotics.  Heck, I even went in for an accupuncture treatment ealier this week.  This morning I have an appointment with an ear-nose-throat doctor at 8:00 am.  This will be my first drive in morning traffic since March.
  • When you work from home, sometimes it’s hard to justify buying new clothes.
  • About two years ago I started to watch “Breaking Bad” and only got a little through the first season because it didn’t live up to the hype, mainly because my close friends set a pretty high expectation for it.  This week I started where I left off and I’m now I’m a little bit through season three.  There’s some reality you have to suspend (I don’t see Jessie surviving that scene right before the ATM incident), and even though I don’t find it as captivating as most of my friends, I’m highly entertained.  I think the one scene that really got me was when Skylar told Walt what she did with Tim, there was something about just the way she said it.
  • WifeGeeding and I finally got around to watching the season ending episode of “Homeland.”  That show did the impossible, it made a one hour episode feel like three hours.  I have no idea if I’m in it for a third season, but I did pick up on the late VP’s wife calling Brody by his fist name and it made me think of one of my reader’s theory, that just might hold true.
  • The Christmas commercials this year are rather bland.
  • As a kid I thought “Happy Holidays” was a faster way of saying “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”  Actually, I still do.
  • Nike is having a special Christmas shoe for three NBA players?
  • Oklahoma church uses gun classes as outreach
  • The Trash We’ve Left on the Moon
  • Arian Foster buys Texans offensive line Segways for Christmas
  • Gridlock buster Tammy Dombeck got married
  • During a soundcheck Madonna tells a man to stop smoking or she isn’t going to do her show.
  • Dirk Gives Presents To His Mavs Teammates

    I think you're talking about my theory on Brody's last name. I didn't pick up on that until halfway through this season, so I would have to go back to the beginning and see if it holds true, or at least to the beginning of this season. I did a Google search and the only answer I saw from anyone other than a fan was an interview with Damien Lewis. He said that members of the cast had the same question and he didn't know the answer. A lot of fans suggest that the practice is common with military wives.

    I'll stick with it for a 3rd season. It will be interesting to see the story of Carrie trying to clear her own name and Brody's. I thought the idea of the two of them driving away from Langley after the bomb went off without being stopped was one of the more ridiculous plot points of the season and that's saying a lot after a season full of ridiculous plot points.

    I was thinking the same thing about how tame Christmas commercials are this year. Usually they have some sort of jingle or tune I can't get out of my head. Either I'm not watching enough TV or the advertizers and retailers have joined the War on Christmas :-)

    I would never have enough self-discipline to work out of my house.

    The article on moon junk was interesting, although "96 bags of urine, feces, and vomit" isn't much of a legacy. I always thought Shepard's hitting of the golf ball on the moon hurt the future of the program in terms of cost/benefit of the missions.

    Hope you're feeling better.

    I finally bought a Neti pot & neti salts for ongoing sinus headaches. Used it 4 times and they are gone. I resisted getting one for a long time because it is darn weird to use but works great.
