Bag of Randomness

  • I decided to brine the turkey for Thanksgiving and WifeGeeding, who isn’t a fan of turkey, thought it was the best she tasted, especially the white meat since it was the moistest she’s tasted.
  • I looked at the prices of turkey fryers the day after Thanksgiving thinking they would be discounted but I was wrong.
  • A lot of folks enjoy doing the Turkey Trot in Dallas on Thanksgiving morning.  I can’t think of anything less enjoyable to do on that day than to wake up early and to run with a crowd of people.
  • I don’t think you can ever catch me up early shopping on Black Friday.  I enjoy sleeping in whenever I get the chance and I don’t like crowds, and stuff like this happens (language warning).  Idiocracy.
  • I didn’t expect it, but I like it that GM created a commercial to thank the American public for their tax dollars.
  • I still don’t have any idea who sent BabyGeeding that “My Dad Can Out-Blog Your Dad!” onesie that you can see her wearing in post you can see below, but if you didn’t catch my thanks the first time, let me saying it again, THANK YOU.
  • I think BabyGeeding actually said her first word over the weekend – onions.  At least that’s what it sounded like.  Funny thing, the night before I dreamt that she said “fingers.”
  • The foundation guys started work on GeedingManor last week and one worker actually wore this obscene t-shirt.  Hey, I know I have a tendency to drop that bomb every once in a while (ok, maybe more than once in a while) but it’s certainly not professional nor tasteful to wear such a shirt to a customer’s home.  If it’s a case of not having enough work clothes, then the worker could have at least turned it inside out.  I’m not sure I was necessarily insulted, but I certainly didn’t like it, so I felt I needed to file a complaint.
  • U2 released a one time only limited edition vinyl LP last Friday and one store in my neighborhood was listed as a retailer.  Once I got there I found they were sold out, but the college kid behind the counter was nice enough to see if another store had it in stock.  Yup, one store, per his words “Uh, there’s like one album left in Topeka, where ever that is.  I can like have it mailed to your house if you like.”  I took up the geographically challenged kid’s offer.
  • I have a feeling the U.S. is going to get pulled into a new Korean conflict which will only add to our war totals.
  • I’ve been eying a portable HD radio at Best Buy for about three weeks and it has always been on backordered status.  Funny thing, but I spotted the product at my local Best Buy over the weekend.  I took it as a sign so I pulled the trigger on the purchase.
  • WifeGeeding and I debated on whether or not to purchase a new Christmas tree; because of my allergies we always have to get an artificial one.  I think we have concluded that it’s best to wait to purchase one after Christmas and get the discount.  I’m just not so sure I’m sold on the pre-lit Christmas trees.  Our current one is a pre-lit tree but now not all the lights work, and I think that will be a common problem for any pre-lit tree – that sooner than later a string of lights embedded on the tree will go out forcing you to sting lights.  So now I’m thinking when we buy a new tree, it won’t have any lights, and besides, is it that much more effort to string some lights around a tree once a year?
  • It doesn’t get any more manlier than this – Chuck Norris has nothing on them.
  • One of the most impressive interceptions I’ve ever seen happened on Saturday night – YouTube
  • Glenn Beck Hijacks ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’
  • 1 in 4 Overweight Women Don’t Realize It
  • Now in paperback – The Russian Bride Phrasebook
