Bag of Randomness


  • There’s a rule at GeedingManor that all home improvement projects stop at the start of football season.  Yesterday I see several paint swatches taped to our laundry room.  I think WifeGeeding is trying to squeeze in one more project for me while she can.
  • I’m sure everyone has thought of a crime or murder they could get away with scot-free.
  • WifeGeeding informed me that one of her friends named her daughter Swayze.  I’ve never heard that named used for either a boy or girl, but if Swayze does get a little brother, I hope he’s named Dalton, and then the father can teach him the three rules, “One, never underestimate your opponent. Expect the unexpected. Two, take it outside. Never start anything inside the bar unless it’s absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.”
  • On The TICKET yesterday, the Hardline crew couldn’t figure out how the Cowboys franchise value or worth increased by 36% last year.  I’m surprised they couldn’t remember the AT&T naming rights deal as well as agreement with the city of Frisco to build a new practice facility and entertainment complex.
  • During a commercial break on The TICKET I heard a Park Place motors advertisement with SNL music in the background and a bad Don Pardo impression.  Considering the man died just the day before, that was pretty tasteless.
  • My barbeque smoking research has introduced me to some new terminology like packer brisket, the point, the flat, and the deckle.
  • Ken Burns was on Letterman discussing his new series that covers both of the Roosevelts, seven tw0-hour episodes that starts on September 14.  That’ll certainly be on my DVR.  He stated that if both men were running for office today, neither would get passed the Iowa caucuses.
  • Is Your Theology A “Little Bit Off”? Here’s A Quick Test To See
  • Texas Monthly‏ –  Where Have All the Cowboy Churches Come From?
  • Speaking of Texas Monthly, their barbeque guy thinks some New Yorkers have figured out Texas barbeque, “The brisket I’ve had in New York lately is better than a lot of places in Texas.”
  • Buzzfeed – This Guy Took Photos Of Himself Adorably Proposing To Disney Characters
  • Buzzfeed – The Guy Who Inspired The Ice Bucket Challenge Finally Took The Ice Bucket Challenge Himself – There’s also an ESPN piece about the man’s fight against ALS.
  • Buzzfeed – An All-Bacon Restaurant Is Opening In Montreal – Hey Warren, he’ll have  Jägermeister poutine.
  • There was a line in last night’s ‘The Bridge’ that seemed like a story right out of ‘Game of Thrones’ – Theon Greyjoy’s in particular.
  • Trying to put cold, hard butter on soft bread is anathema to me, usually I just end up destroying the bread. – The Cutting-Edge Butter Knife of Your Dreams Is Finally Here
  • Usually by this time of year every homeowner has given up on their lawn, but we’ve been fortunate this summer.
  • Sea plankton discovered outside space station
  • The Every Simpsons Ever marathon starts on FXX today at 9:00 AM Central, this means for the time being I can’t say there’s nothing on TV.

    I believe the Park Place ad was done by Danny right after they did a segment discussing Don Pardo and how they loved his voice and inflections. It was done as an homage.

    Well that's until Season 6 or 7 starts running.

    If your research doesn't include a whole lot of eating, you're doing it wrong.

    I hate the BBQ Editor for Texas Monthly. I heckle him every chance I get in Facebook and Twitter. His writing is awful, his blog was boring before he started writing for TM, and God forbid, he isn't even from Texas. TM got their little bit of publicity out of hiring a BBQ Editor, now it's time to let him go.

    You know what I hate more than fake BBQ snobs?
