Bag of Randomness

  • Probably some of the most photographed bacon in the world. Link
  • It’s been over a decade that I’ve been to a skating rink.  I remember going to skating parties as a kid, and that weird feeling after taking them off and walking around and still feeling as if I should be rolling.
  • I remember being a decent skater in elementary school, and didn’t attempt to skate again until I was in college.  It was one of those things I where I thought it was like hopping on a bicycle, you know, that you never forget.  Boy, was I wrong.
  • Interesting pictures from China’s electronic waste village.  Link
  • Let me let me let me upgrade . . .
  • During WWI, concrete ships actually sailed.  Link
  • I caught some of Dubya’s last press conference.  It was touching, humbling, and frustration all in one.  He makes a good point on not visiting after Katrina because rescue personel would be taken away from rescue duty to protect him, and I appreciate his admission of regrets about WMD’s and that Mission Accomplish banner.
  • I think I have only bought one thing at a mall booth.
  • Yes, there is a film called The Curious Case of Benjamin Button starring Brad Pitt, but it was first a short story written by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  You can read that story here.
  • F. Scott Fitzgerald’s full name is actually Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald.
  • And yes, he was related to Francis Scott Key, the wrestler.  I’m kidding about the wrestler part, but he is related to the creator of the Star Spangled Banner.
  • He was married to a lady named Zelda.  I have no idea if she was the inspiration for the Nintendo game or if there is a legend named after her.
  • Keira Knightley is set to play his wife in an upcoming movie.  I think she plays too many period movies.
  • I’ve only seen the first three seasons of 24, and wish I would have caught the season premier even though I would be out of the loop regarding everything in between.
  • The CBS show The Big Bang Theory is growing on me.  I actually know people that would refuse to watch that show because it would interfere with their creationalist beliefs.
  • I really connected with How I Met Your Mother last night.  Let’s just say me and Marshall worry about the same things while we are at work.
  • For the first time since jet airliners took to the sky, U.S. carriers have gone two years without a single passenger fatality.  Article
  • It looks like sports radio 1310 The Ticket is going to lose the Cowboys.  Link
  • Can a spider be cute?  Link
  • Today’s random TV show opening is from a show in which I have never seen one episode.  Link
  • Love

    Geeding, you hit the nail on the head. Actually, I just posted about the HIMYM last night, same thing:

    If you really are starting to warm up to the Big Bang Theory, you have to go back and watch the first season. It is really great, and truly is one of the two funniest shows on television right now (the other being 30 Rock).

    ……..”his admission of regrets about WMD’s”…….I thought he said he “was disappointed about the WMD’s”……….either I was dreaming he said that, or it was a spectacular freudian slip…..I still have no respect for that man.

    By the way, check out the 2005 documentary “The American Ruling Class” if you get a chance…….I thought it was quite prophetic. I saw it on satellite last night, Sundance or IFC.

    Oh my goodness, you have never seen Little House on a Prairie?

    You need to go home and DVR every episode playing on the Hallmark Channel.

    You of all people would love it. Only the earlier episodes, mind you, not the later ones when the kids are adults… it doesn’t have the same effect.

    The first concrete ship on the list is one that is sunk right off the beach where I grew up. We just called it the “Sunken Ship.”

    I miss “grace”

    Whoa, thanks Bella…….I skimmed thru this BON posting and missed the TV show link, only making evil comments about Mr. Bush, but thanks to your comment I learned it was Little House on the Prairie………I felt sad this year I didn’t send BON a Christmas card or present, so that makes me want to go out to the old Saint Jo School Bus we use as a storage shed and pull out the complete set (soft back, sorry) of Little House on the Prairie books and send them to Keith, well, maybe not all, but one or two! It’s been years since I was out there when I could safely go in, without being attacked by yellow jackets, but since I’m on a mission to clean Gobble Hollow up, I may just make that a priority.

    The books are a must if you like the TV series. I have no idea what condition they might be in, and that’s a shame. Hopefully, at least one has survived. And, darn it, that reminds me of my complete set of Happy Hollisters and Dr. Seuss books that are out there………how could I have forgotten them? I feel really bad about that. Golly only knows what else I will find out there.
