Bag of Randomness


  • WifeGeeding baked cookies for the nursery workers at our church and wrapped them in in cute Halloween packages.  They were quite thankful for the gift and one of them handed WifeGeeding a prayer request to put in the offertory tray, which is one of many ways people at our church will ask for prayers.  The prayer request was that the nursery worker was just diagnosed with stage four kidney failure due to her diabetes.  WifeGeeding then felt regret for giving her those cookies.
  • Our pastor, from my understanding, does not support same sex marriage.  But he did make a point I never really put together, homosexuals aren’t asking the church to recognize their marriage, just the government.  He went on to state how the government should never interfere with what the church chooses to recognize.  His bigger point in his sermon is that Christians need to treat the marriage ceremony as a worship experience instead of a typical occasion/event and to understand the significance of marriage based on a dedication to Christ.
  • The First Church of Christ Scientist in Dixon, Illinois has an interestingly shaped building.
  • I wonder how Red Sox fans feel about Joe Buck, son of legendary Cardinals announcer and current St Louis resident, broadcasting the World Series.  I bet they think there’s a lot of biased announcing
  • Thankfully NFL teams took it easy with pink this weekend.
  • With 1:33 left in the Cowboys/Lions game, the Cowboys had a 99% win probability.
  • Yup, the loss stunk, but there wasn’t a Cowboys fan on the planet that didn’t see that coming after what we’ve seen since Parcells has left.  I also have to give Stafford credit for seeing the Dallas linebackers out of place and pulling a quarterback sneak, it was gutsy and beautiful.
  • How great is the football mind of Jerry Jones?  He was more worried about Reggie Bush than Calvin Johnson.
  • The biggest surprise that came out of that Dez Bryant rant was the anger on DeMarcus Ware’s face as he grabbed Bryant by the collar of his shoulder pads.  Ware is a heck of a defensive player, but he seems as gentle as that guy on the Green Mile.
  • Jerry Springer Will Host Price is Right Live! in Dallas
  • Just a GIF of a bird feeding a dog noodles
  • I watched this GIF of a tiger waking up about ten times, those eyes are so interesting.
  • Johnny Manziel is well known for his partying problems off the field and you would think the Aggies would do want they can to help Manziel distance from that reputation.  Nope, they decided to tape an interview with him and ask who he would like to party with and broadcast it to all of Kyle Field.  At least he gave a pretty good answer with Charlie Sheen and Rob Gronkowski.
  • Baylor climbs to number six in the nation despite playing against the weakest of opponents.  College football is amazing.  But come next Thursday, I may have to give Baylor their due when Oklahoma comes to town for their first real test.
  • A great costume for you Texas Tech fans.
  • I don’t recall any outdoor football games being postponed for weather when I was a kid.
  • I always thought it was a big mistake for the White House to accept and take ownership of the label Obamacare for the Affordable Care Act.  If someone hates Obama, they are going to hate something with his name attached to it just as much.  I guess that’s why I had a dream the other night of the first debate between Romney and Obama.  In that debate Romney referred to the ACA as Obamacare and then asked Obama if it was OK if he used that term, and Obama accepted ownership.  In my dream, Obama responded differently by stating if that Romney wanted to cite authorship, then he should refer to it as Romneycare.
  • I don’t think there could be a worst start to Obamacare.  It’s like someone lost a bet or chose dare in Truth or Dare.
  • Would the Tea Party be as strong or popular today if McCain didn’t pick Sarah Palin as his running mate?  I’ve felt she’s been the catalyst and start of the movement.
  • A great Coming to America costume.
  • I wonder how many people notice the main difference between a college and NFL football . . . the NFL balls doesn’t have any white stripes.
  • No one is really a grown up. They just act old because they have to.
  • A $1.5 billion development is going up at 75/George Bush in Richardson.
  • After 20-and-a-half-months, BoyGeeding got his first haircut over the weekend.

    That's a big step for young Master Geeding! Baylor has a big disappointment coming. They'll be lucky to go 3-2 over the next 5 games. Pretty sure the term for Palin is charismatic demagogue.

    Might it be that there were no weather delays when we were a kid because the stadiums, bleachers, and seats were non-conductive. My first weather delay was about 15 years ago, I was a the new (now the old) stadium for Northwest High School. The announcer not only cleared the field but told everyone to get out and away from the bleachers. It was at that moment that I realized they were all alluminum and a strike anywhere there was going to be bad i.e., all the poles were metal and attached to fences, fences attach to bleachers, and fences going out about a 1/2 mile were all interconnected.

    I've wondered the same thing about Obamacare. I think Charles Rangel introduced the bill so shouldn't it be called Rangelcare?

    Jerry Springer's more complex than he seems. I knew that he was once a politician, but I wasn't aware that he'd been a progressive – and that he'd done a pretty good job. Go figure. There was an interesting segment on/about Jerry several years ago on This American Life.

    Synopsis: This American Life producer Alex Blumberg tells the true story of Jerry Springer's life before he was a talk show host. It's the story of an idealistic and serious Jerry Springer, a progressive politician, and the most popular mayor ever of a certain American city. (31 minutes)

    Reminiscent of Al Franken's past and present lives, but in reverse.

    Your old pal Towski is a diabetic. Don't worry about the cookies – cookies, sugar, things like that aren't diabetic kryptonite, and most diabetics I know (me included) feel worse when people point it out and make a big deal about it.
