Bag of Randomness for Friday, August 3, 2018

  • I was surprised, but not really, that Disney sells their own branded memory cards for digital cameras and such inside their hotels.
  • I thought it was an urban legend that Disney cast members (employees) would use “Mickey” as code to let another cast member know they can’t speak at the moment because a customer is nearby. However, as we were walking down the hallway back to our hotel room a cast member got a call on her phone and answered, “Hello, Mickey . . .”
  • I was surprised at how easy and close parking at DFW Airport was. Any available spot was identified by a green LED light above and we literally parked across the street from the terminal entrance. For three nights the total cost was a reasonable $26 which was charged to my TollTag.
  • Our family met with our pastor yesterday in his office and we let the kids ask him any questions they may have about the church.
    • BoyGeeding
      • How was God made?
      • How long was Jesus on the cross?
    • DaughterGeeding
      • Why did Jesus have to spend time in Hell?
      • Are Jesus and God the same person, why do people argue that?
  • WifeGeeding used a coupon to buy some Kendra Scott jewelry at Neiman Marcus and they sent her a nicely written thank-you letter.
  • Brookstone filed for bankruptcy and will close its remaining 101 mall stores
    • I’ve often wondered who shopped at these stores. My guess is they get most of their business when people are shopping for a present but have no clue what to get a person so they end up buying some sort of knickknack from them. I also thought a majority of their business where impulse buys.
  • Apple is the first $1 trillion company in history
  • A utility company in Washington says that it accidentally sent an African-American customer a racial slur as the temporary password for her online account.

    – I recently took a long vacation and did prepaid parking at DFW – 14 days at the terminal for only $120. A great deal.
    – Those were great questions, how did your Pastor answer them?
    – How much more expensive are Disney SD cards?

    • Geeding says:

      Sorry for the late reply. “Bryan B” answered the SD question perfectly. As for the answers my pastor gave my children, I wish I could recite his answers word for word and fear any attempt would botch a greatly worded answer. That does indeed sound like a cop-out on my part. I will say he answered them directly and honestly and didn’t provide any filler or fluff so it appeared he had all the answers. He told him what we can assume from what’s said in the Bible, his personal beliefs, and how questions like those are important to ask and help us grow closer to God. Even though he’s a grandfather and has young grandchildren, I think there were times he spoke a bit over their heads, I’m not sure our kids know what theologians are, but then again, maybe he thinks have intelligent children.

    I’ve generally found that items like the SD card at Disney are priced similar to what they would be if you were buying them in any other situation where you’re part of a captive audience without other options. More expensive than buying it on Amazon, but not as high as you would think.
