Bag of Randomness


  • People at work take Christmas decorating seriously.  I’m actually pretty impressed with this gingerbread house, and I thought the hanging candy was a nice touch.  I’m going to try to walk around the building today and snap some other decorations.  It’s a real festive place around here.
  • The Fig Newton got its name from the city of Newton, Massachusetts, not the scientist.
  • While watching How I Met Your Mother last night I was reminded of the trend of men wearing overalls.  This happened when I was in my junior high and early high school stage of life.  If I recall correctly, it was cooler to only use one strap instead of two, and the preferred brand were Girbeaus.  I don’t think I ever worn any.
  • The tragic event of the bombing of Pearl Harbor happened yesterday, and if it wasn’t for a few snippits on the news, I doubt hardly anyone would have noticed.  I use to think that 9/11 would be like that one day, but since the month and day are the name of the event, I don’t think many will forget.
  • It just occurred to me that two of Tom Cruise’s exes are in the movie Nine, Penelope Cruz and Nicole Kidman.   I wonder what kind of conversations they had or if there was any awkwardness.
  • Hershey’s Packaging Perfectly Contradicts Itself
  • As man times the Immaculate Reception has been replayed on television, I have never seen it as it originally aired.  For once, I just want to see it as the television audience first viewed it, without any cutaways or closeups of Franco Harris.
  • Nothing like getting a Christmas card in the mail with your name spelled “Kieth”.
  • Elephant Lives With Family
  • Power outlet of the future?
  • Google launches real-time search
  • I pass Forest Lawn Cemetery on the way home everyday on the way home from work and always think someone famous is buried there, but I can never remember who.
  • I also pass about four strip clubs on the way home from work.
  • I have to go to the dentist today for two cavities.  I was given the option of laughing gas, which I declined.  I’ve never had it, and in a way want to experience it, but from what I hear, you will do and say things without filter, and that’s just something I fear.

    I think they'll show the original Franco Harris footage from time to time. I could be wrong, but I think the cameraman loses the ball after it bounces off the defensive back. They then pick up Franco running down the sideline. I'm always amazed that NFL Films was able to pick up Franco catching the ball (but the bottom of the screen was cut off so we'll never know if the ball touched the ground before the catch.)

  2. Keith, I thought of our conversation last week about Kevin Spacey while watching the opening of HIMYM last night.

    What's in the BOX?

    What was funny is that they had pretty much the same reaction as you did….what the hell is she talking about?

    The elephant is cute but should not be in a house.
    I have never seen an episode of how I met your mother.
    Michael Jackson was laid to rest in Forest lawn in Los Angeles, or rather thats what the reports were. I don't think you pass that cemetery on the drive home.
    Are the strips club all on the same strip?
