I wore shorts yesterday as it was over 80 degrees, that ain’t gonna happen today with the cold front.
I really like NBC5’s new studio, but showing live traffic on that screen behind the anchors is too distracting.
I got a haircut yesterday and the stylist kept stressing how I need to change my hair style to cover up my thinning hair at the top of my head and then tried to push a lot of hair products to combat the problem at me. Until yesterday I never thought I had a problem in that category.
Speaking of feeling old, I can go for months without consulting the Urban Dictionary but I had to consult it three times this week.
On Dec. 20, CBS will rebroadcast “The Christmas Episode” of “I Love Lucy, but in color. I think the idea of broadcasting the Christmas episode from a legendary program is a brilliant idea and wouldn’t mind seeing this happen with other great shows, but I’m not so sure about the colorizing idea, call me a purist. What is unique in this case is that this episode was never in syndication.
Dallas is very lucky to have someone like Dirk that plays his heart out, help win us a championship, and has totally embraced the area and will do anything to promote his team. Compare that to what ARod did when he was a Ranger.
There’s been a ton of marketing for the next Anchorman movie, now there’s a Ron Burgundy Scotchy Scotch Scotch.
I keep a dry erase marker by our bathroom mirror and will write reminders to myself or messages to WifeGeeding.
I’ve concluded that ‘Orange is the New Black’ is another version of ‘LOST’.
The prison is the island in which all are trying to leave. Some can’t wait to leave and others find comfort in the setting, and then there is the struggle to coexist in a mix diverse personalites.
You are first introduced to the supporting characters and then get a major back story on how they got their and what shaped their personality.
And this is a bit of a stretch, but the prison system is the Dharma Initiative. They wore coveralls and the prisoners uniforms looks similar to them.
Barry over at LiberallyLean.com stated that Gary Patterson has gotten beat up for his comments about Art Briles. From the articles I read and the sports talk radio I listen to it seems about half think he over-reacted over a loss and the other half support Patterson regarding player safety and for the lack of player discipline Briles has, at least with Ahmad Dixon.
We had tickets to the weekend’s UT/Baylor game but it’s gonna be too cold, and if the 16-year-old version of me heard that he would throw a rock at the 38-year-old-me.
Of all college football games I’ve been to, the team I’ve seen the most is Baylor. I guess that’s what happens when you marry a Baylor gal. I don’t count Hardin-Simmons games, that’s just glorified high school, and in some cases, a few steps below.
On the radio yesterday Dale Hansen says he hates it when the Cowboys win because it gives Jerry Jones vindication that he’s doing something right. I bet a lot of Cowboy fans feel that way.
The TICKET referenced one of my tweets yesterday. They also had an interesting conversation about euthanasia, something I support to an extent. When my father was dying the process pretty much seemed like approved medical starvation and it bugged me seeing how long he had to wither away despite everyone knowing he was going to die.
The Lyndon B. Johnson Foundation gave former President George H.W. Bush an award and he wore socks that displayed his face. After that health scare a little while back, I think we’re all surprised at how well he bounced back.
One of the more interesting questions Col Chris Hadfield answered in his Reddit AMA was about sneezing inside a spacesuit during a space walk and the possibility of getting stuck floating in the middle of a room on the space station. It also turns out all astronauts at some point try farting as a means of propulsion. I also learned that it’s impossible to burp when weightless because the gas, liquid, and solids in your stomach all mix together.
