Bag of Randomness

  • OK . . . The Bag is reopened because of the kindness of two people, one of which is my favorite East Coast Pastor.  Out of the blue, well, actually pink, he sent us that onesie you see above.  He took my love for U2 and combined it with the upcoming joy of my daughter which made me realize that this event only happened because of this blog.
  • The other comes from a long time reader telling me how she is putting my website on all the iPads in NYC.  That was funny enough to encourage me to keep on blogging . . . for now.
  • As mentioned earlier last week, our floor installer missed our appointment and he was going to arrive on Saturday so that I wouldn’t have to take any more time off of work, and in the meantime, WifeGeeding and I have been playing “camp out” in the living room, where our mattress has been since Tuesday.  He arrived on Saturday as scheduled, but I noticed the flooring I ordered wasn’t correct.  It was the same brand, but I requested Portland Butternut and they sent African Walnut.  Both of which are very similar, but you can tell a difference.  We already have Portland Butternut in the part of the house, and we were wanting to transition it into the bedroom.
  • So I was stuck with making a decision, try to work things out with a company that shipped this product from West Virginia or just have what is already at our house installed.  WifeGeeding was away at her parents, so I sent her a pick and after talking it over, we were tired of camping out in the living and decided to just have it installed.  Thankfully, the match is pretty close.  There is a barrier between the two, so it doesn’t transition into one room to the another as I originally hoped, but we think it’s close enough.  Here’s a picture, the older, dirtier floor is on the bottom.  Thankfully the hallway is always not well lit, so it’s going to be hard to tell.
  • There’s nothing like seeing the 91-year-old Andy Rooney in HD.  Man, those cataracts are something else.
  • I haven’t had an original tweet in a while.
  • I was really surprised at the number of businesses that were closed yesterday, especially Best Buy and Fry’s.
  • I noticed that my phone has this new contact reminder feature.  For instance, if I need to discuss something with SisterGeeding the next time she calls, I can add a contact reminder note to her profile, and the next time she calls the reminder note will pop up.
  • Well, maybe that feature isn’t new, but I just now noticed it.
  • WifeGeeding seems to sleep best at night now in our reclining rocking chair.
  • As of late, I really, really miss my mother, father, and Micah.
  • Because of The Pacific I learned a new word, enuresis.
  • Whoa . . . the thought of McNabb being traded was silly enough, but him actually being traded to a division rival is ludicrous.  Similar to what happened to Bledsoe I guess.  As a Cowboy fan, I always feared the guy.  Looks like a local boy will now be the Eagles starting QB, and I’m interested to see what Shanahan will make of McNabb.
  • In case you didn’t catch Kim Kardashian’s Good Friday message.
  • For you Narnia fans – Hidden room through an Armour.
  • A very racist campaign ad
  • Channel 5 had a news story about the impending implosion of Texas Stadium and some girl said she remembers how her father use to take her there ice-skating.  Huh?
  • SisterGeeding sure is happy with the student loan changes that were included in the healthcare bill.  I bet many people her age with student loans are so ecstatic with the changes they will remember this come the next election.
  • I just filed a dispute with PayPal, some company I never heard of just took $200 from my account, a company I’ve never heard of before.
  • You folks that finished college without having to repay any student loans just don’t know how fortunate you are.  I’m still paying 11 years later.  One thing is for sure, if I had a do-over in life, more than likely, I would make sure I would find a more economical way of obtaining a college education.
  • Tony Romo made a 60-year-old with Down syndrome very happy.  Article
  • The Washington Post has an interesting story about how a person wrote a letter to Obama and how he responded.  It’s a bit of a mushy read, but what I liked about it was leaning about some of the inside workings of the White House correspondence office.
  • Letterman had a Tea Party member on his show the other day in a most interesting interview, it’s one of the reasons why I love this guy.  Read about it here.
  • Panasonic 3-D TV demo coming to Grapevine Mills mall April 6-8
  • Square Coke?
  • Grenade throw backfires on Chinese army recruit
  • Pixar characters by size

    I like your choice of floorings. They are close enough.

    I was out of town for a few days and am elated to see you back in business!!

    The fact that the Eagles really wanted to get rid of McNabb should have told the Redskins something. I'm surprised Shanahan is re-building around a guy who could be finished as a player

    The racist ad campaign is for Glenn MIller, he's an old KKK guy….I'm surprised he's still around. He's been going "strong" since the 80's and was an early adopter of a violent overthrow of the government.

    Can't wait to see her in that one-of-a-kind onesie 🙂

    It's funny about the iPad in NYC… just this morning I was on the subway and the guy sitting across from me opened his attaché case and pulled out an iPad. I thought it was a ridiculous thing to do. Maybe he was reading BON! 🙂

    Note to self… do not pull out an iPad from an attaché case on the subway in front of Rev. Hart.

    Actually, I'd be too scared to have it yanked out of my hands sitting on the train and all. Door opens, someone swipes it and goes out the door as it closes… people do it to iPhones all the time.

    What the heck… the PayPal thing happened to me too… I'm contemplating on shutting mine down altogether. I got things righted but it was a pain…

    Sister, that's what I mean! Somebody could snatch it and run. Maybe it would be Rev. Hart! Living on a minister's salary is tough these days (I'm looking at you, Keith).

    Those comments about college sure hit home. I was accepted to my #1 school in Boston last week, but with no financial aid. Somehow, the school expects me to pay 85% of my families income per year. So not worth it, but it breaks my heart. Even MA state schools are expensive (20K for an in-state resident!)

    Yah, I thought you said you were giving up blogging. Face it. You're an addict. The first step is to admit it.

    This site has been on my iPad since April 3rd. Glad you can find the time to blog for now, DadGeeding. You will be a great father, I look forward to your sharing of that experience.
