Bag of Randomness

  • I no longer have a mustache.
  • It makes me sad when I get a haircut or shave off my go-tee an no one at work notices.
  • WifeGeeding just discovered that the trapoline is an Olympic sport.  Look for her in London in 2012.
  • I’m seeing the USA Basketball mens team attending more and more Olympic events and I think that’s pretty darn cool.
  • I just heard that Tim Russert’s son will cover youth issues at the conventions.
  • While watching Rocky IV back in 1986 I never thought this would happen.
  • I guess what I’m trying to say is, if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change.
  • I guess only a handful of folks understood those last two bullet points.
  • The more that I listened to Rick Warren speak over the past couple of days, the more grateful I am he is not my pastor.
  • Usain Bolt sure is an arrogant sprinter.
  • My planter fasciitis pain has gotten much better ever since I started exercising on the elliptical trainer.  I think it helps me stretch in some sort of way.
  • That elliptical trainer is wearing me out so much that I feel too tired to blog.  I think today’s posts are pretty lackluster.
  • Over the past four years a lot of businesses in my area have gone out of business.  That’s not a political stab, just an observation that makes my concerned about property values.
  • A friend just called and told me his manager was let go and he now has his job.
  • I bought Madden for the Wii and I feel a bit stupid playing it.
  • I wonder if there was ever really a Big Foot.
  • I finally found that annoying rattle in my car.
  • My favorite gravy is white country gravy.
  • I miss watching Bugs Bunny on Saturday mornings.
  • Laurence Fishburne seems to be a good fit for CSI.
  • I love watching Mythbusters and Modern Marvels.
  • We have a new garage door opener that oddly enough won’t light an energy efficient bulb but will light a regular bulb.  I know the energy efficient bulb isn’t defective as it works on a lamp inside.  Weird.
  • I just saw a tie in the uneven bar competition.  That is extremely weird.
  • Those Chinese gymnasts sure do look young, but I wonder why nothing more was made of up at the pre-Olympics competition.
  • I’m not sure how being 13 years of age as opposed to 16 is an advantage.  Off hand, I think being that young is a disadvantage.   But I’m ignorant when it comes to this sport.
  • The U.S. pole vaulting coach didn’t really sound all that positive towards his silver medalist.
  • I sure hope I’m wrong, but I think I see the U.S. losing it’s foothold as the economic leader of the world.  Recently the Chrysler Building was sold as well as Anheuser-Busch sold to foreign buyers, and I hear China owns a lot our debt, not to mention, their economy is about to go bonkers.  As low as the dollar is right now, foreign investors are snatching things up as a bargain.  And I believe GM has or is about to lose it’s reign as top car producer to Toyota.

    Thoughts on BON Thoughts: 1)I sat through the controversy of Liukin ending up with the silver after she tied for the gold and thought it was unfair. A number of other Olympic sports give out double and triple golds, so it’s not unprecedented. 2) Bart Conner and Nadia Commenici were on this morning explaining the controversy. They are married and living in Oklahoma. She looked much older than him. 3) Foreign countries buying up America is in some ways a good thing: it shows they believe in our economy over their own and it also means they have a vested interest in seeing our economy doing well. In fact, in the last few weeks the dollar has been getting stronger, which is one of the reasons given for the drop in oil prices 5) What is odd to me about the Big Foot (and Loch Ness) lore is that we know a species will crash and become extinct if the population drops below a certain number (usually a few hundred) because of the inability to reproduce offspring with enough genetic diversity to be viable. Yet, Big Foot and Loch Ness legends have these two creatures wandering around on their own for decades.

    The “advantage” of a 13 vs 16 yo is that the 13 year old is lighter, more flexible and has less of a fear of doing challenging stunts. Atleast that’s what the announcers said the other day.

    we too can’t use the energy effecient bulbs in our garage door system!

    I also have palantar problems and have found the eliptical to help. Also the tiredness went away for me and was replaced by ntold extra energy in about three weeks of daily 30-45 minute elip sessions. (also lost 30 lbs in 90 days)
