It’s weird hearing news of a heat wave and DFW not be a part of it.
As an exercise to try to better myself when coming to an opinion, I’m asking myself, “Is there anything that is clouding my judgement?” For instance, I have lots of opinions about Johnny Manziel and his off field actions, but I have to take into account that being a Longhorn fan may cloud my judgement and opinions. I also have to ask myself that question when a conservative makes a certain statement or action and ponder if my left leaning ways is clouding my initial thoughts. I guess it comes down to that old ‘respond vs react’ adage.
I first came up with that question talking to an family member about the movie Wall Street and the iconic line “Greed is good.” That family member asked me if that was a true statement, and at the time I said yes when it comes to capitalism, but he told me that answer is incorrect, because greed clouds your judgement.
I was driving next to a Dallas police car yesterday and we drove neck to neck the light of us changed to yellow. Not wanting to get a ticket, I slowed down and stopped, but surprisingly the cop sped up and basically ran a red light.
For WifeGeeding’s birthday we ate at the kid friendly Cheesecake Factory in Frisco. Our waiter said about three years ago he waited on Mitt Romney in that restaurant.
While walking around the wall I often think there are some very ‘unique’ people in this world, and I wonder how many folks have thought that about me.
As of late, I don’t prefer the two small patties on a bun burger, but a medium to large patty that has some thickness to it.
Straight from Barry’s blog: A USA Today reporter was sent to the metroplex and was “on his own” (with the help of Twitter) to explore the place.
I love potatoes.
One of my favorite jokes in the Netflix season of ‘Arrested Development’ are the references to ‘Entourage’ with the street signage.
While watching ‘The Bridge’ last night I think I came to the conclusion that I prefer television over movies because I like character development and the art of storytelling. But I was surprised to see a Lyle Lovett appearance, and more surprised at his good performance.
I need to watch Twelve Angry Men.
