Bag of Randomness

  • Happy Friday, everyone.
  • I seriously cannot remember a time in which it has rained so hard and for so long in DFW.
  • Glad I mowed the lawn right before this massive storm hit.  As an added plus, I didn’t have to clean up any grass clippings because of the storm, it was going to do it for me.
  • Now that Carrie Prejean is no longer Ms California, what are the odds of her landing a gig on Fox News in the next three months?
  • Speaking of which, there’s a bit of a Carrie Prejean and Anita Hill connection.
  • I’m a single man for almost a week with WifeGeeding gone to the beach with her family.  I think I’m going to do something somewhat major to the house and surprise here when she gets back.
  • I got a kick out of Obama writing a note to a kid’s teacher about her missing class.
  • I bought BibleScholarGeorge a big ‘ol steak at Bob’s Steak and Chop House last night.  He never really had a high quality steak before, and since he saved BagOfNothing, it was the least I could do.
  • Everyone, give BibleScholarGeorge a standing slow cap in appreciation for saving this blog a few months ago using his Jedi like database skillz.
  • I can’t stand having lemons in my tea or water.
  • Is there any other female that has a higher power-trip than the hostess of a restaurant?  Seriously.
  • The Colbert Report has been broadcasting from Iraq this week.  Colbert has been cracking me up with his camoflauge suit and new military haircut, but I like how he opens the show in a Bob Hope style.  Not sure if his demographic really understands why he walks out with a golf club and a classic looking microphone.
  • Speaking of Bob Hope, he was performing in Vietnam one time and my father had some kind of responsibility regarding the production of the show.  Something went wrong behind the scenes when Bob was talking, actually something needed to be done on the stage directly behind Bob Hope.  My father didn’t know how to resolve the situation without rudely interrupting Bob, so he put on a yellow rain coat and started working during Bob’s monolouge, and of course Bob started to crack jokes.  I heard it once on some old tape around the house, but I doubt there’s any video.
  • Speaking of domographics, Katie Couric was on The Daily Show and Jon Stewart kept teasing her about her low ratings, and surprisingly she went along with the jokes.
  • Katie’s strength isn’t behind the desk, but interacting with people.  The best possible solution for her and CBS is for her to take over Face the Nation when Bob Schieffer calls it quits, and then bring in someone like Anderson Cooper, who already does special assignments for 60 Minutes, to take over her job.  I know, I should be running TV.  I totally agree with you.
  • Speaking of news, I watched a little Brian Williams the other night.  I noticed some hip sounding music between segments.  Quite interesting.
  • David Letterman, I love you.
  • Imagine seeing your Christmas family picture appear in another country’s grocery store advertisement.  Link
  • Denzel is just a cool name, isn’t it?  And you have to be one heck of a guy to carry that kind of name.
  • Here’s a pretty cool wedding cake – the town square from Back To The Future, compete with a Delorean.
  • I’m not ashamed to admit that I cannot name one Jonas Brothers song.
  • Or that I can’t name one single Jonas Brother.
  • But at least they write and perform most of their own music.
  • Craig Ferguson’s openings really crack me up.  He has such a low budget, but does such a great job with he has.
  • Laugh with your fingers (it may take a bit to load)
  • Why is it that the people most likely to say the Holocaust didn’t happen – are the people who wish it had?
  • Grace

    Bible Study George, the readers of BON are forever in your debt (but we are not likely to repay that debt by buying you an exquisitely cooked piece of red meat).

    Craig Ferguson ROCKS! His first two minutes are consistently the funniest on TV (the bit he does between the start of his actual monologue and the end of Letterman's show).
