Bag of Randomness

  • WifeGeeding’s post-op appointment went splendidly.  So well in fact, the doctor didn’t even charge us.
  • Today it’s off to the ocularist to have her old eye adjusted to fit over her new implant.  Yeah, I know, it can all get a bit confusing if you aren’t familiar with this kind of stuff.
  • When I get together with a lot of my closest friends, we like to quote movies, and often we will quote Kip Dynamite from Napoleon Dynamite – “Like anyone can even know that.”
  • That line came to mind when I was researching my home town on the Internets.  Supposedly the inventor of the paper clip built a house  in Mineral Wells, TX.
  • I couldn’t find any information in the Internets to back that claim, which sounds just as funny as Dr Evil when he said his father claimed to have invented the question mark.
  • And it appears that Mike Modano of the Dallas Stars was in a dunking booth in Mineral Wells.  That would seem extremely generous of him to travel to such a remote and small town to do such a thing.  But perhaps the booth was in Dallas and was  sponsored by the Crazy Water company from Mineral Wells, that would probably make more sense.
  • But then again, Mineral Wells is a hotbed of hockey talent.
  • Actually, it’s not.
  • I remember as a kid when we use to eat out at the old K-Bobs every one in a while, and I thought that was fancy dining.  That K-Bobs is now a bank oddly enough.
  • There was a big old country wagon turned into a salad bar that caught my attention.  And there was a barrel of cracks next to it.  While we waited for our food, I always use to dig in there trying to find all the rectangular townhouse crackers since they tasted better than the square saltine crackers.
  • I miss K-Bobs.  I wonder if there are any that are still around, I would probably eat there just to try to bring back some old memories.
  • An Aggie friend of mine brought up that TAMU was looking for a new president and needed someone who was conservative.  I mentioned that Sarah Palin no longer has a job.  He cringed.
  • The soup and cracker mug is a heck of an idea.
  • I hear a disc jokey reader of mine is giving me a shout out on the air in Kansas City this morning.  I posted a video of that laughing weather man, and now he’s booked on my reader’s radio show.
  • What happens when you combine Full Metal Jacket with Star WarsLink
  • The name “Sanyo” means “three oceans” in Japanese.   The founder of the company’s wanted to sell his products across the Indian, Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
  • A stage group in Austin is putting together a Saved By The Bell skit about Jessie’s pill problem episode.  Link
  • I bought a safety razor yesterday to kick things old school, wish my face luck.
  • Speaking of face, has Marie Osmond got some work done on her face?  The skin underneath her eyes look stretched.
  • As a Cowboys fan, I’m suppose to have a strong dislike for the Eagles.  But I have nothing but respect and admiration, and was extremely envious of the defenses that Jim Johnson put together.  He was one heck of a coach, and will be missed.  Skin cancer is nothing to scoff at.

    I too thought it was fine dining to eat at K-Bobs, you could walk by the grill and watch them cook the steaks. There is still a K Bob's in Here ford, Tx and Clovis, NM….both are still good restaurants!

  2. Steve says:

    Yeah K Bobs appear to be focused in the panhandle and Corpus Christi here in Texas as well as being located in NE New Mexico, Colorado, and Oklahoma

  3. Doug says:

    You recall my college buddies dad owned and ran that K-Bobs. Nothing cooler than going camping on PK with nothing but a cooler of K-Bobs steaks and a cooler of beer.

    I also like to quote Kip Dynamite. Mostly, I say, "that's what I'm talkin' about." And little Riley has a tshirt that reads "Your mom goes to college."

    Speaking of Sarah Palin. This week, we're spending time with our family from Alaska while we're in Michigan. We were sitting around the campfire the other night and, for the first time ever, I heard Sarah Palin get defended. I thought it was a joke at first, but it was real, honest-to-gosh appreciation for Sarah Palin. (And you think your TAMU friend was cringing!).
