Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, August 23, 2017

  • I suffer a bit of anxiety when I see someone I know while grocery shopping and do my best to avoid them.  It’s not because I dislike the person, but I feel like I’m forced into small talk, which I feel is full of false sincerity. I just want to complete my task and go home.
  • When purchasing with cash I always feel rushed putting my change away, especially putting bills in my wallet. I prefer all my paper currency to be in a certain order all facing the same way.
  • When I go to a friend or neighbor’s house and ring the doorbell and they don’t answer, I don’t know the adequate amount of time I should wait and leave. I’m also not sure when is the proper amount of time to ring the doorbell again, and always bothered when I can’t tell if the doorbell rang and should follow it up with a knock. I’m also somewhat annoyed when someone knocks on my door instead of ringing the doorbell.
  • Even when I’m really sick and call in, I always feel a bit guilty.
  • CBS11 now uses a drone with a camera attached to it and has named it Drone Force 11.
  • Local Lamborghini theft
    • Bell admitted to WFAA that he and his friend William Caston, 18, went to the downtown Omni Hotel Sunday morning, temporarily blinded a valet by spraying him or her with a fire extinguisher, then grabbed the keys to a $300,000 Lamborghini Huracan and raced away down South Lamar. “I mean come on now, it’s a Lamborghini. Everybody want one of those. And plus I needed money. So I was gonna sell it,” Bell said. “I had a chop shop already lined up. Dude said he was gonna give me over 10-bandz [$10,000] for the car. So it was already in line.”
  • I really didn’t know much about Jameis Winston other than his play on the football field, but from watching this season of ‘Hard Knocks’, he’s more committed to his profession and a better leader than I thought.
  • I’ve had my hearing checked and my ears are functioning as they should, but I often feel I need people to repeat themselves. However, I just can’t bear to ask anyone to repeat themselves because it feels too darn awkward.
  • I forgot in its final season, CBS moved ‘Murder She Wrote’ to Thursdays to compete with ‘Friends’. There was even an episode taking a shot at the sitcom.
    • Maybe not so coincidentally, during that last season of the series there was an episode titled “Murder Among Friends,” where a TV producer is killed in her office after planning to get rid of a member of the cast of a fictional television show called Buds. Complete with its coffee shop setting and snarky repartee, Buds was a not-so-subtle stab at Friends, coming at a time when Murder, She Wrote was placed right against the hip ratings juggernaut. Putting the murder mystery aside for a moment, Fletcher takes plenty of jabs at Buds throughout, literally rolling her eyes at the thought of six twentysomethings becoming a hit because they sat around talking about their sexuality in every episode.
  • If you are all caught up on ‘Game of Thrones’ and enjoy semi-dark humor, here’s a meme for you.

    Speaking of knocking on a door. A long time ago(when I was 12-13 years old) I was a carrier for the F.W.. Star Telegram and each month had to go door to door collecting the bill. You quickly realized which house you had to ring the bell and who you were required to knock. Some people would yell "Come on in!" in which I never did because they most likely thought I was someone else.
    There were a few ladies that thought I was their boyfriend at the door which sometimes surprised both of us. Could go on a lot more, but thanks.

    – You didn't hear of the Baylor-style rape cover up at FSU when Jameis Winston was there?
    – I just shove the cash in my pocket and then put it in my wallet when I get home. I will also order them by denomination and have them facing the same way.
