I don’t know why I never understood the concept of why time flies by for an adult and not a kid until yesterday. If you are five-years-old, a year is a fifth of your life, so it’s a huge part of your life and seems long. As you get older, the year becomes a smaller and smaller part of the time you have experienced so it seems to go by quicker.
Not only do I grind my teeth at night (I wear one of those night guards) but I grind and clench my teeth all day, especially when I’m deep in thought.
On last night’s Colbert, Matthew McConaughey said his first three words on film were, as you would guess, “Alright, alright, alright” from Dazed and Confused. I wonder the last time McConaughey felt literally stressed, he always seems at ease, high or not.

The 52-story downtown Dallas skyscraper formerly known as the First National Bank tower is getting a heck of a renovation.
Over the next year, the stone on the outside of the 52-year-old landmark will be taken down, shipped out of state and restored with a high-tech manufacturing process. Each of the inch or more thick marble slabs that cover the 1.5 million-square-foot high-rise will be sliced into two or more identical slabs, glued to a metal honeycomb backing and then replaced on the outside of the building.
Most of the stone panels from the outside of the Elm Street tower will be trucked to Florida to HyCOMB’s plant near Miami. A few curved panels will be shipped to China for a specialized reconstruction.
