Bag of Randomness


  • I had a question about our neighborhood power outage and decided to text the neighbor I’m most comfortable with.  Instead of sending a new text, I scrolled through my text history and replied to it.  After he politely answered my question I felt comfortable enough with him that I started to include some dark humor.  I got a strange reply and then it dawned on me, the reply I used to text my neighbor was a group message.  The rest of the night was spent eating some humble pie and hoping I didn’t offend anyone.
  • I stopped watching professional wrestling sometime after Hulk Hogan and Randy ‘The Machoman’ Savage teamed up.
  • After seeing how we’ve botched the whole Ebola thing, I can totally see how a zombie outbreak is plausible.  I use to watch those movies thinking there’s no way the zombie virus could spread at that rate because we would contain that stuff in an instant.
  • I’ve gotten my Charlie Brown/Snoopy carved pumpkin to last longer than expected by spraying it with a bleach and water solution everyday.
  • Alton Brown is a culinary genius when it comes to teaching and showcasing food, but he seems like a jerk.  At one point he had a set of rules on his blog regarding fan engagement.
  • I’ve never been a fan of pickles.
  • The other day I was trying to figure out what’s the biggest waste of money, like something you spend money on but doesn’t really fulfill a purpose or extra money spent on something that’s not needed.  Decorative pillows came to mind, and so did vanity plates.  I know vanity plates serve a purpose, but you are spending extra money for no other purpose other than vanity when you could just have standard less expensive plates.
  • I’ve never worn anything from Oscar de la Renta.
  • As cool as the Navy Blue Angels and Air Force Thunderbirds are, it’s a waste of taxpayer dollars.
  • Say goodbye to the magnetic strip on your credit/debits cards and hello to chips – Obama signs “BuySecure” initiative to speed EMV adoption in the US
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!
  • Peter King mentioned the inspiration for this Peyton Manning picture is this Wilt Chamberlain photo.

    The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds serve as recruiting tools, but I don't know what kind of a return they get on that investment.

    A zombie outbreak? Oh, Keith (sigh)

    Alton Brown played a likable character on Good Eats. Since that show ended, in interviews and appearances he comes across as arrogant and very full of himself.

    Biggest waste of money? Bank fees, penalties on late payments, and — increasingly irritating as I get older — interest paid on borrowed money (if you're the debtor).

    If I were Alton Brown, I would hope I would be different…but I totally can see myself saying the same things. #dountoothers
