Bag of Randomness


  • Driving home from work yesterday on I35, I passed a garbage truck that had a flat tire; but, about twenty yards away from it on the access road was a tire store.
  • A friend recently shared his experience with me about a Baptist wedding he attended.  As the couple exchanged vows, the groom “promised to be her leader” and the bride “promised to be her helper.”  I’ve been to many Baptist weddings, but that was the first I’ve ever heard of this.
  • I’m more screwed than the average person should I ever get leukemia.
  • Tory Belleci of Mythbusters is 38 years old?  I thought he was in his late twenties.
  • Blasphemy is against the law in Massachusetts.
  • An infographic that displays which Michael Jackson songs influenced other hit songs.
  • Levi Johnston continues his 15 minutes of fame, this time with a bit of a spread in GQ.
  • My future phone, the Palm Pre, will sync with iTunes.
  • I need a new phone fast, my old one is pretty beaten up and is missing an antennae.
  • I’ve been stuck in the doldrums as of late.
  • The family ate at Le Madeline last night – I don’t envision me and the guys eating there together.
  • Every sci-fi nerd fantasy come true – a Princess Leia Pillow Fight.
  • Dubya spoke yesterday, and I can’t fault the guy for defending his decisions, and appreciate how he isn’t trying to bash his successor.
  • Car for sale, minor pest problem‏
  • My new pastor left a comment on this blog yesterday, so I may have gained a new reader . . . now I wonder how long has he been reading and if I said anything that will come back to haunt me. 😉
  • I’ve been a DirecTV customer for a while now, and have been pretty pleased with their service.  Yesterday in the mail they sent me a thank-you card for being a loyal customer and gave me three months of Showtime for free starting immediately, I didn’t have to do a thing.
  • I’ve cut my magazine subscription down to just one.  I can find all the material I need to read online, and I’m doing this as a way to try to be more dedicated to books.
  • The sole magazine I still subscribe to is Mental_Floss, which comes out every other month and is a not too intelligent, intelligent read.
  • The government has a website to track stimulus funds called  However, I was listening to NPR yesterday (I’m still trying to get more cultured and intellectual) and they talked about a Seattle-based company called Onvia that runs   It’s a bit more robust and detailed than the government’s site.  For instance, you can break down what your state, county, and city are using regarding stimulus funds.  I live in Lewisille, TX in Denton county, and found my city isn’t receiving any stimulus funds but our county received $848,898 to replace two bridges.
  • I also found that MotherInLawGeeding’s county is working on three projects worth $47,690,850 in stimulus funds.  And that Tarrant county is the big winner with 37 projects worth $1.326 billion.
  • My new favorite line from the “Most Interesting Man in the World” commercials that had me laughing for a while . . . He once taught a German Shepherd to bark in Spanish.
  • I don’t have any plans this weekend, and I love it when it works out that way.
