Bag of Randomness for Monday, March, 18, 2019

  • I saw a commercial for something called Sprite Lymonade which was described as a Sprite with a hint of lemonade. I raised an eyebrow. Sprite is a lemon/lime drink. There’s already lemon in it. Lemonade has sugar and water in it, Sprite already has sugar and water in it. Oh well.
  • Anderson Cooper was on ’60 Minutes’ last night doing a segment on Monaco. Some tour guide was telling him how the wealthy live and where they hang out and I started laughing, Cooper’s mother is Gloria Vanderbilt, a direct heir of Cornelius Vanderbilt, one of the richest men in history.
  • I was dreading doing my taxes on Saturday, but when I logged into TurboTax it stated I already filed. Well, everything but the very last step. It turns out I filed them the night before after taking an Ambien. On Friday night, I remember thinking about starting on them since everyone was in bed, but don’t recall actually starting them.
  • Conquer Monday like this dog conquered his fear.
  • I thought Monica Lewinsky’s answer to the following question on Twitter was interesting.
    • @Bcbudinto – This may sound like a strange question but of the two, which would you say was more harmful to you personally? I’m a guy, and have never been shamed in either way, so I’m just trying to understand the impact. Obvs they’re both bad and should never be done.
    • @MonicaLewinsky – having been both slut + body shamed, former harmful cuz it stigmatizes behavior + the person who engaged in it … latter so destructive cuz it attacks your whole being. (probs could be more articulate but awake since 4.15 am) ANYWAY props to @jameelajamil + @samsmith #iweigh
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!

    I know you weren’t driving, but I have defended (unsuccessfully) multiple DWIs where the client took a normal dose of Ambien and woke up in the drive through line or elsewhere behind the wheel. Arrested and convicted. No defense even with a prescription. It is bad news.
