Bag of Randomness

  • Yesterday was a long day, I ended up working an extra four hours at work.
  • And then I had to come home and try to repair our bed.
  • How did our bed break?  Well, a friend is painting the bedroom as a favor to us and he shoved it a bit too hard.
  • Nothing a little J.B. Weld can’t fix.
  • I hope.
  • McCartney on Letterman, returning to the Ed Sullivan Theater, was pretty cool.
  • He had a good “magazine dropping” line last night.
  • Being someone who really didn’t know much about him, he came across as very charming.
  • McCartney played outside on the marquee, and the crowd outside was just massive.  I found some great pictures that were recently uploaded to Flickr.
  • I remember the first time I saw him, I think it was on an MTV awards show where he made a surprise appearance, and I wondered why everyone was cheering for the old man no one knew.
  • I’m going to have to work Saturday.  Blerg.
  • The Dallas Morning News has this new feature called the Problem Tracker.  It’s a way for people to report problems such as potholes, graffitti, broken stop lights, etc in a GoogleMaps format.
  • I like the idea of nurses tweeting from the operation room so that family members can follow.  Link
  • Speaking of Twitter, someone from the audience now tweets during the Price is Right.  Link
  • Jimmy Valvano died back in 1993, and ESPN continues to honor his legacy.  That’s a very cool thing.
  • NASA will let you send your name to Mars free of charge.  Link
  • Can Twitter Kill Your Church
  • A bit of a dark joke: Helen Keller Simulator
  • As a kid, I remember hearing a lot of Helen Keller jokes, and laughing even though I didn’t know who she was.
  • The same thing happens to us Texas – We all don’t wear boots and cowboy hats, or ride horses to work.
  • When reporting about banks, the media should use more specific terms such as commercial banks and investments banks to help their audience.  I’m guessing someone without a finance or banking background can get easily confused and wouldn’t know what bank is which.  I mention this with all the talk of Goldman Sachs in the news the last couple of days.
  • I’m not saying dumb down the news, but the audience needs a little guidance every now and then.
  • For my fellow Star Wars fans: Wookieepedia
  • For you Davey and Goliath fans, here are the lost episodes.
  • I just recently found out they were part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
  • Grace

    Remember the D&G episode where Davey got trapped in the boxcar and as the train moved he imagined it said,All alone" over and over in that scary monotone?

    When I lived in Germany people who were Texasphiles would swoon when they found out I was from Texas- then they would think I was lying aboiut where I was from when they found out I didn't own horses.

    Paul Mcartney? Absolutely no use for that jack o lantern after I found out he became a vegetarian after while eating mutton he looked out the window at sheep grazing put 2 and 2 together and realised he could kill to eat. Took 40 or 50 years to figure that one out THEN try to infect the rest of the human race with that faulty logic?
