Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, December 9, 2015


  • Fargo Spoiler Alert – You should have heard the screams WifeGeeding and I let out last night.  We were watching the gunfight at the hotel, Hanzee is looking at the UFO, Ed and Peggy just threw some liquid at his face and starting to make a break for it . . . and then the DVR recording ends.  ARGHHHHH!  I had to quickly use my resources to find a copy of the episode so we could finish the episode.
  • When I told WifeGeeding that the girl in ‘Scream Queens’ that always wears earmuffs was the daughter of Carrie Fisher, she made an astute observation.  She asked if she did that to honor Princess Leia’s hairstyle that’s in the hair buns.  Personally, I doubt it, but it was a surprising observation from her.
  • A highlight of each December in our neighborhood is when the Lewisville Fire Department drives a firetruck through the area with Santa on top throwing candy.  You never really know when he’ll come, you just have to listen for the sirens each night.  However, this year, they provided a Santa tracking map which goes active when it gets dark and each firetruck with a Santa has GPS, so you can track him down pretty darn easily.
  • My washing machine, which is about 25 years old, is acting up slightly.  It leaks water only when the water level is on high and hot water is used.  It won’t leak water in any other circumstance.  I’m attempting to fix it myself, and right now the whole thing is in pieces.  If this doesn’t work out, I’m asking Santa for a new washer and dryer.
  • I’m pretty sure I’m going get a red light violation ticket from the City of Coppell and their stop light camera.  It was one of those things in which I got slightly distracted and thought I had plenty of time, but I don’t think I made it.
  • My neighbor that plays for our local NFL franchise played a game on Monday night and on early Tuesday afternoon he was doing yard work.  But this time, he was wearing a shirt.
  • Mark Hamill has stated he was contractually obligated to lose weight to return to the role of Luke Skywalker.  I think it would have been funny if he countered saying they should change the storyline so that he was required to gain weight, and Luke’s weight plays a significant role in the new movie.
  • What really gets me is that Mark Hamill is now older than Sir Alec Guinness was when the original Star Wars was filmed.  Hamill is 64 late, great Alec Guinness was 61 when filming first began in 1976.
  • A girl from Buzzfeed wrote about her first experience with a bidet.  As you know, I have one, and I love it, but I just haven’t gone into detail about it.  It’s not that I’m shy to do so, it’s just I know there are some sensitive people out there that have a low threshold for that kind of stuff.  However, she isn’t graphic in her details, though there some minor language and adult humor in the article.  She also tries the experiment with her lips using lipstick – wiping it off with tissue and then putting it back on and using a newly installed bidet for comparison.  Check it here if you are so inclined.
  • When we took our trip to Disney World, I really did miss my bidet.  My model is just a simple attachment that goes under the seat and was installed in less than ten minutes, and you can get it now for $40.  So far, the room temperature water in the winter hasn’t been an issue, so I’d forgo any model that adds warm water.  And besides, those are harder to install as you have to do some handy work and install an electrical outlet nearby.

  • Buzzfeed – This Man Found A 100-Year-Old Wedding Cake While Cleaning His Garage
  • Buzzfeed – A Houston Police Officer Comforted His Horse As It Lay Dying After An Accident
  • Father Christmas death notice published in Norwegian newspaper – Aftenposten apologises after ‘internal procedure error’ led to announcement of funeral for 227-year-old Santa at North Pole Chapel
  • North Texas Businesses Unprepared for Open Carry – “Oh, I think there are a massive amount of uneducated business owners out there that don’t know what’s coming January 1st,” said David Prince, of Eagle Gun Range in Lewisville. “I think they’re going to get a big surprise on Jan. 1 when someone walks in with a pistol on their hip without a badge.”
  • Hello Interstate 14 – Central Texas Corridor Designated As Future Interstate
  • An Ohio woman lead police on a chase that lasted for about 30 miles – After stopping the car, the deputy noticed that the woman behind the wheel was eating a bowl of cereal.
  • An 18-wheeler was carrying fire extinguishers caught on fire and shut down a highway.

    Don't get too excited about I-14, they've been talking about I-69 for more than twenty years.

    An Aggie interstate? That can only be bad. Although maybe they’ll finall get rid of that Richland Curve.

    You don’t comfort a dying horse. You put them down. He had a gun, and there’s no excuse for letting the horse suffer. But if you know anything about the schmuck Houston horse cops, you know he horse is just another accoutrement for their bullying ego. I dislike them as an entire class of officers.

    The liquid was hot water. Remember her making tea earlier? My prediction is The Butcher and his wife are abducted by the aliens. She always wanted to take a trip. The UFO storyline has to pay off somewhere. If not, it's been a huge distraction to an otherwise superb story.

    • Geeding says:

      I’m pretty sure it was hot water. But I think the time in which she was making tea was well before the shooting started. When she started tea, everyone was up, and when the shooting started, everyone was sound asleep. Even if that was the case, nothing else makes sense other than hot water. Or . . . . maybe the UFO heats water as it’s nearby because it’s a byproduct of alien technology? 😉

    Buy a Samsung washer. I bought one after giving up on my 18 year old Maytag. My water bill dropped by $50 a month and it takes only half as much time for my clothes to dry. It's amazing.
