Bag of Randomness


  • So, uh, a neighbor found his lost pet snake near our neighborhood playground.  [Photo courtesy of the best looking blonde on the block]
  • WifeGeeding decided to sell a bed and dresser and asked if I would move them downstairs the next morning, and I playfully replied that she should do it herself.  When I woke the next morning, both the bed and dresser were downstairs with no damage to the them or the house.
  • WifeGeeding’s friend shared her vacation plans the other day which consisted of a 25-page itinerary list.  I feel for her husband.
  • “Everything happens for a reason” is probably not the most sensitive thing to say to the families of the Germanwings plane crash victims.
  • Understatement – Kentucky has a pretty solid men’s basketball team this year.
  • AZ Senator: Church attendance should be mandatory
  • I’d like to think Julie Andrews hasn’t had a facelift, but I think she has.
  • The best and most concise article I could find regarding what’s so great about the new Parkland Hospital.
  • Another television how comeback – ‘Coach’ Comes Back As 13-Episode NBC Series Starring Craig T. Nelson
  • Instead of being interviewed, President Obama did the interviewing of David Simon, creator of ‘The Wire’.  That’s probably one show I need to binge watch, at least that’s what Peter Griffin tells me.
  • Female students at Delone Catholic High School in Pennsylvania need to have their prom dresses preapproved by the faculty in order to attend prom.  I have no problems with this, it’s better than getting dressed up and sent home, and besides, if you choose to go to a private school you are subject to their rules.
  • Google Sends Reporter a GIF Instead of a ‘No Comment’
  • 60,000 leaflets – U.S. drops propaganda bomb on ISIL
  • TIME – Only about 35% of smartphone users download any apps at all in an average month, says Comscore’s Mobile App Report—put another way, 65% of smartphone users don’t download a single app in any given month
  • I really enjoyed season one and I’m looking forward to season two – Watch the first clip from Halt and Catch Fire Season 2 – Season one streams on Netflix starting on April 8, that means you should watch it, George.
  • I’m Riding A $450 Motorcycle Across Vietnam
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA!
  • I still can’t get over what Dean Smith bequeathed in his will to ALL of his former players.  I believe the gesture cost around $36,000 total, which is a drop in the bucket for a man of his wealth, and a great way to make one last impression on his pupils.  It makes me wonder if someone like Michael Jordan will just frame the check or use it for its intended purpose.
  • This GIF of a puppy learning to jump makes me smile.  But it’s his second jump, the one with more confidence showing how much he enjoys it is the real kicker.

    I gave up on Halt and Catch Fire in the middle of the season. Plus it was weird to see all those pine trees in what's supposed to be Dallas area. (The show's filmed in Atlanta) I did like the opening theme music.

    I didn't really care about the Wire, it insists upon itself.

    If Dauber and Luther aren't players on a Coach reboot, I'm out.

    I'm sure the AZ State Senator that wants mandatory religious services has a particular brand of religion in mind. I bet he also fears Sharia Law, which is ironic.

    Glad to see the Coach redux. I first remember CTN from Call to Glory, and didn't catch all that many of the Coach episodes in its day, but with the current dearth of decent sitcoms, it would be a welcome respite.

    I've recently been watching reruns of Rules of Engagement on UHF. Late adopter much?
