Bag of Randomness for Our 13th Wedding Anniversary

  • The traditional gift for the 13-th wedding anniversary is lace.  Hey now…….
  • Regarding that last picture, later that night we both got locked out that room with just our robes, I think it has something to do with one of us getting ice. But thankfully we were in the Adults Only part of the Grand Floridian.
  • Yesterday was exhausting. It was a very busy day at work, we closed on the refinancing on our house, fought traffic (two accidents and plenty of construction) to have dinner with the grandparents in East Texas, and somehow came home with a bunny. His temporary name is “Buno”. As in, “Bono”. As in, the lead singer of my favorite band, U2.

  • If I had any scene control, I totally lost it all yesterday.
  • The man from whom we received the bunny grew up in Azel and it turned out we may have actually competed against each other as he played guard and I was both a defensive end and linebacker. He seemed bitter saying we played dirty, especially my friend that was born with one arm. Well, one arm just wasn’t fully developed and grew only slightly past the elbow. He would often put the nub in your hand and wiggle it, which freaked a lot of folks out. He was a lineman and used the nub, from time to time, to work up inside the face mask and target the neck/throat area to gain an advantage. That friend was quite impressive, he could bench over 200 pounds by balancing a regular barbell with his one fully developed arm. You baseball fans may remember retired major league pitcher Jim Abbott, and my friend was very similar to him when it came to baseball when it came to throwing. He was also one heck of a shot putter.
  • “Sometimes you win, sometimes you learn.”
  • Every time I hear Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer” I changed the lyrics to “Hold me close, Tony Danza”.
  • If I heard Corby Davidson of KTCK The TICKET correctly yesterday, he and current Dallas Distract Attorney Susan Hawk used to take baths together around the age of three. She is now in inpatient depression treatment for the third time, and Davidson stated he sadly thinks she needs to step down from her role as it seems she’s unable to fully commit to it.
  • Buzzfeed – 15 Fascinating Facts About The “Battle Of The Bastards”
    There was a lot less CGI than you’d think!
  • J.J. Abrams and Tavis Smiley are making a show about Michael Jackson’s ‘last days’
  • Google will help your self-diagnosis with new symptom search
  • Benjamin L. Corey – Confession: I Think I’m Becoming A Calvinist
    • Corey has been hard on Calvinists for a long time, so it’s interesting to see how one can evolve over time after constructive debating, researching, and praying over such a thing. When it comes to faith and challenging a long-held belief and then slowly opening up to something different, one can feel a lost of identity, but in reality, I call this growth and letting God out of a box that man decided to build and place him in. God is bigger, and so is theology, than one would like to believe.

    Happy Anniversary Geedings! Here's to many, many more.

    I fully expected you to (and was disappointed you didn't) say that Susan Hawk's ongoing problems with depression are the result of her and Corby's alleged bathtub experiences. I can imagine Mike or Danny coming to that conclusion

    Before the Tony Danza line was popularized, some people quoted that line of the original lyrics with a Russian accent, which references an episode of WKRP in Cincinnati called "The Americanization of Ivan"

  3. Ben W. says:

    Happy anniversary! (Don't you wish you were headed to Disney today to spend time with your bride??)

    Would we be having the same discussion about the DA stepping down if she were battling cancer and going through chemo? Or is it because we stigmatize mental illness?

    I read Corey's article as a more satirical, tongue-in-cheek statement that he's becoming Calvinist. I read his conclusion as more along the lines of "I'm becoming a Calvinist, except for all that Calvinist stuff that I've never agreed with, but embracing all that stuff I've always agreed with if you word it differently to make it more accommodating to the way I see things now." I do appreciate him so openly sharing his ever-evolving viewpoint, though. We all should learn to question, holding our faith tightly while we hold our beliefs loosely.

      Yes yes yes. This. I've been commenting on this all over the place since she started battling depression. If she were sick with a physical rather than mental ailment, we'd be hailing her courage.

  4. GOT Love says:

    Happy 13th Anniversary! Amen to the enjoyment of many more to come.

    I think the death of Ramsay was the most satisfying one I've ever witnessed on a show (movie, series, etc.). (I think series holds the advantage over movies because you can develop more dislike of a character due to dealing with them longer.)

    I've gone through the embracing of what Corey expresses: Calvinism without the eternal torment factor. Here's to Love winning!

  5. Brent says:

    I think Corey's post should more accurately be titled "I Think I'm Becoming a (Christian) Universalist."

  6. David Bryant says:

    I knew we were just alike. My bride and I stayed at the Grand Floridian on our honeymoon as well. The only difference is about 12 years…

  7. joe says:

    Please don't lower your standards to Liberal Lean site. I wish his wife would say "hey now" enough of that crap

  8. Alec says:

    Congratulations. ….marriage is hard….every year is earned. ..

  9. Mr. Mike Honcho says:

    Happy Anniversary!

    (Strange, I posted this yesterday, and thought I saw it posted, but noticed today it was not?)
