Bag of Randomness

  • With all the crap that goes on on Capitol Hill, it sure was nice to see Rep Giffords make an appearance.
  • A friend of ours, probably in her late 30’s or early 40’s, just had her tonsils removed.  During the procedure, there was a minor mistake which resulted in her no longer being able to taste anything except salty or bitter foods.  It would be a weird life no longer being able to taste sweets, wouldn’t it?  Could that be an alternative to the lap-band surgery?
  • I recently learned how area codes were assigned . . . the larger the population, the lower the number.  For instance, NYC is mainly 212 and Dallas is mainly 214, which made it easy to dial on a rotary telephone.
  • While driving thru Waco listening to Tina Fey’s Bossypants audio book, she referenced Waco when she was touring with Second City.
  • U2’s album Achtung Baby was originally going to be called Adam.  And in case you didn’t know, it’s about the fall of man.  An author wrote a book about it, and Bono confirmed it with him back stage.
  • I made a School House Rock reference yesterday and the 26-year-old woman in the office didn’t have an idea what I was talking about.
  • In particular, I referenced this episode.
  • Yup, that was timely, probably just as much as this one.  And you thought it was just a recent topic.
  • I remember speaking to WifeGeeding’s aunt and she questioned that I knew what the three branches of government were in the second grade.  I remember telling her of course I did, thanks to the School House Rock.
  • As your body grows bigger Your mind grows flowered It’s great to learn Cause knowledge is power!
  • The Democrats, especially Obama, can’t negotiate for anything.  I wish they were all car salesmen.
  • My hometown had a murder suicide by two teenagers.  Crazy.
  • Randy Moss retired yesterday, and who knows if he stays retired, but can you imagine what life for a Cowboys fan would have been like if Jerry would have drafted him and Aikman was throwing to him?
  • Over the weekend VH1 has been showing a lot of classic MTV.  It was fun watching some old episodes of Remote Control, and seeing some of their classic commercials.
  • How men and woman socialize, so very true.
  • 102 Things NOT To Do If You Hate Taxes
  • Most of Newt Gingrich’s Twitter Followers Are Fake
  • I don’t think Walter Payton ever thought about doing a Just For Men commercial.
  • Lake Nacogdoches’s lake level has dropped significantly with the Texas drought, so much so, it looks like a four foot round metal object from the space shuttle Columbia disaster has surfaced.
  • My father would have turned 88 today.
  • Grace

    Enjoyed hearing "Schoolhouse Rocks" again. I learned more about many things from listening to those songs w/ my children than I did attending high school w/ my peers!

    I will never forget the Preamble to the Constitution. Not because of law school but because of Schoolhouse Rock.
