Bag of Randomness


  • I cooked and tasted quinoa for the first time yesterday.  It’s one of those “super foods” and I liked it enough that I want to incorporate it into my diet.  Here’s a good comparison between it and brown rice.
  • DaughterGeeding is now strong enough to open the refrigerator on her own, that’s both a good and a bad thing.
  • WifeGeeding (a former kindergarten teacher) once told me that when a child hands me a drawing to not ask what it is or try to figure out stuff about it, but rather ask the child to tell you about the picture.
  • My Verizon Fios install is today.  Two days a contracting crew buried a fiber-optic cable and yesterday afternoon a Verizon truck was outside the house for the longest time.  I decided to talk to the guy outside and Fios was out for the entire block . . . gulp, not a good sign since that’s why I’m leaving Time Warner.  Well, it turns out that contracting crew that buried my line yesterday screwed up service for the block but cutting into a conduit, so yesterday afternoon and until past 11:30 PM a crew that ranged from one to six at times were working on someone else’s mistake, even setting up lights, using a digging excavator, and installing large spools of wiring to get the job done.  I guess it’s good news for me to get this all done before my actual install, but I felt so bad for them I walked out and gave them some soft drinks and cookies WifeGeeding baked.
  • I have to admit I gave them drinks and cookies for two reasons, I thought they could use a pick-me-up and I’m trying to watch my calorie/fat intake so the less cookies the better.
  • That’s one way to do it, I guess – Church battles local hunger with food fight
  • I wish emails would have an option to Reply/Forward and then Delete option.  It would save me a step from actually replying/forwarding and then going back and deleting the message.  I actually suggested it to the Outlook team yesterday during their Reddit AMA.
  • Something for the ‘Breaking Bad’ fans, the Los Pollos Hermanos Yelp page.  Regarding Sunday’s episode, I hear that Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul both filmed their last scenes in this upcoming episode.
  • Los Angeles ice cream shop churns its products with pedal power
  • I see Alabama over Texas A&M by 15 because I don’t like what I’ve seen out of A&M’s defense this year.
  • I really didn’t know what to think about Texas Tech’s football uniforms last night.
  • See what dancing on campus leads to – Baylor students indicted for mushroom growing operation, marijuana
  • I was a student at Hardin-Simmons when Baylor lifted the dancing ban and I recall a few sacrosanct classmates of mine saying that was the beginning of a slippery slope of Baylor losing their morals.
  • The First Lady is criticized for encouraging drinking an additional glass of water a day.
  • I would have thought the new Big Tex would have been revealed by now, I mean, he’s been dead longer than three days.
  • The Texas Giant will reopen this weekend, I’m sure that’s going to be an ominous atmosphere.
  • An actor playing a zombie in ‘The Walking Dead’ was hit by a military vehicle per a 911 call.
  • I don’t think modern church buildings have an area actually named Fellowship Hall.
  • That’s a headline you don’t see everyday, time to send in Nolan RyanHerpes-infected monkeys terrorize Florida
  • Microsoft offering $200 trade-in for your iPad towards purchase of a Surface
