Over the weekend WifeGeeding and the kids went to visit the grandparents in East Texas. DaughterGeeding has a cute tiny suitcase she usually packs wither socks and undies, but this time she wanted to take her backpack to show her grandparents. She decided to pack the backpack inside her suitcase.
Right before bedtime I was bathing DaughterGeeding when she looked at me with a pensive look on her face and ask, “Daddy, when am I going to meet your mommy?” That curve ball was a tough one and unexpected, it came out of nowhere. My answer certainly wasn’t a home run, or even a single, but I think I at least hit it into fair territory.
I got a call from the Verizon Fios installer on Friday and he said he was at my house but no one was answering, it turns out he was on the wrong street. After he installed the hardware to my garage wall he said, “Uh, oh. Not’s not good, your line is dead.” It turns out that crew that worked up until 11:30 PM the night before forgot to connect something.
The Verizon installer did say he finished working on Dallas Cowboy Orlando Scandrick’s house before home to mine which is also in my neighborhood. Who knew Lewisiville is so Dallas Cowboy friendly, especially with our modest homes. I guess it helps this neighborhood is just across the Dallas County line so we have cheaper taxes.
I tweeted about my Verizon experience but never used their handle. The ended up responding to me via Twitter asking if everything went OK. I told them that the line they worked on was only partially buried and I’m concerned a lawn crew won’t see it and will cut it with a mower. After a few direct messages they opened a ticket.
KTVT had a segment about people crossing the Mexican boarder and stated the alarming folks that are of South Asian decent.
People from India and Pakistan don’t look anything close to people from China and Japan, and both are considered Asian. I think the title Asian is misleading and there should be something to differentiate the two other than adding the modifying South or East to the title.
I made a couple Costco trips this weekend. On one of the trips I ran into a female church friend and we both noticed our carts had a box of, um, well . . . male contraception. She just kind of smiled at me with a funny grin, and me at her, and she broke the awkwardness by pointing to the item in my basket and asking if that’s my first purchase of that product in bulk. I laughing chuckled “no” and she said, “Well, that’s quite an accomplishment, no wonder your wife is always smiling.”
Here’s another complaint about the stupidity of college football. Number one ranked Alabama played number sixth ranked Texas A&M. That means that number one should beat number two. Number one did beat number two, and number two loss just by a touchdown and all other game stats were neck to neck, and that barely loss makes them drop four spots to number 10? Shouldn’t they just stay in the same spot or maybe even move up considering how close it was? I understand you have to take into account the play of other ranked teams, but it still doesn’t make sense – a higher ranked team is suppose to beat a lower ranked team.
John David Crow won the first Heisman Trophy for the Texas A&M Aggies back in 1957, and they just now get around to retiring the 78-year-old’s number? Aggie logic continues to boggle my mind, but at least they got around to it before Crow croaked.. BTW, the article I linked two mentions how cordial the Aggie fans were to Bama fans. They don’t call us the friendly state for nuttin.
I kind of feel sorry for Aggie fans. They love Manziel’s play on the field, but they all realize he’s punk and it’s hard to defend the guy.
It was weird seeing the Kansas City Chiefs in all red, but I do like the atmosphere in that stadium.
I finished the entire series of ‘Monk’ over the weekend. The writers could not have made a more pleasing ending for their audience. I doubt ‘Breaking Bad’ will please their audience entirety, and that’s a good thing. But now that’s I’m finished with ‘Monk’ I’m a bit sad, that show was a bit of my good night ritual.
I caught the first part of that mini-series documentary over all the living White House Chief of Staffs. Donald Rumsfeld and Dick Cheney were a major part of it and actually come off very likable and I totally forgot their mentor/apprentice relationship. It was quite amazing listening Cheney talk about spending the night in jail and then 12 years later becoming the White House Chief of Staff.
The TCU student newspaper has an article about their switching from one-ply toilet paper to two-ply and how it how the school spends about $100,000 a year on the product. That’s some hard hitting student newspaper investigation if I ever saw it.
When going to a wedding or a funeral, I do my best to remember to take tissues and put them in my jacket pocket. Nine times out of ten a lady will shed tears and they always end up being most appreciated.
I think it would be neat to have an Outdoor Basketball League where weather would always be a factor (wind, heat, cold), and home teams could choose their playing surface, like concrete, hardwood, and maybe even grass or dirt.
Man, those 49ers sure do get involved in mid-game delays.
Here’s the new co-anchor of ‘SNL’s’ Weekend Update.
Amazing that Bob Newman has never won an Emmy up until last night. The ‘Newhart’ finale ranks as one of the best ever. And whenever I hear the name Darrell I always wonder if there’s another Brother Darrell somewhere.
As the audience knowing what went down in the desert, it sure was ‘entertaining’ to see Marie go to Skylar and gloat. Once again, it’s all in the storytelling. And did you notice that Skylar was in all white while Marie was in all black?
I love how we didn’t get to see Jessie beat, leaving it up to the imagination was better than any scene that could be shot.
Poor Walt Jr woke up that morning enjoying breakfast having no idea his life would never be the same.
Skylar could have made Walt Jr’s day worst by talking about her infidelity with Ted.
The one thing Walt wanted most was to be a family man only to turn into something that made his family turn against him.
The tension of the knife fight was insane, I had no idea if Jr or Holly were going to get accidentally stabbed or if Skylar was going to die and then Jr go into a rage and Walt killing his own son in defense.
Good guy Walt, he called Skylar knowing he was being recorded and wanted to clear her of everything by saying what he said. But I wish he would have ended the conversation with “There’s always money in the banana stand.”
I’m glad we never get to see who the vacuum cleaner guy is.
