Bag of Randomness for Thursday, December, 20, 2018

  • Those modern-day pictures of Macaulay Culkin are from a new Google Assistant ad.
  • I’m a fan of the relatively new update to my Google Pixel phone. I can screen any call by having Google answer the call and I can follow along by reading the real-time text it’s speaking to the caller. Depending on how the caller responds, I have a variety of voice-to-text responses, mark it as spam, or take the call. It’s so much fun I somewhat look forward to the random spam call.
  • Anytime I ask DaughterGeeding if she would like an ice cream cone, she always asks, “Will it have ice cream in it?” I’ve never pulled a joke of that nature on her, so I’m not sure where she picked that up.
  • If I see a lost shopping cart in a parking lot and it’s between me and the entrance, I’ll roll it back inside. It simply bugs me seeing those out of place and it’s unnerving when one is in a parking spot in which I’d like to park.
  • Notable probably only to loyal reader RPM and me – Scott Pelley of CBS News tweeted he has an upcoming book, Truth Worth Telling. Pelley hasn’t tweeted anything since June 2017, and rarely tweeted before that, but yesterday he tweeted at least twice. He also created a new Instagram account, the first picture is of his family, and his son looks like a giant in that picture. The book comes out in May.
  • Her Neighbor Hated Her Dragon Nativity Scene. So She Got More Dragons 
  • I Spent 12 Hours Eating Everything at a LSU TailgateI’m instantly handed sausage, fried soft-shell crab, and a deep-fried Twinkie—which probably shouldn’t have shared fryer oil with the crab.
  • Beverly D’Angelo has an attractive name, and from my limited research, that’s her real name. Her work in the entertainment industry started as an illustrator at Hanna-Barbera Studios of all things.
  • 20th Century Fox released a Christmas trailer for Die Hard.

    Yep, that’s going on the reading list. Thanks!

    I have a huge interest in the Scott Pelley book. I hate that he was pushed out of the CBS Evening news the way he was.

    The Die Hard trailer is everything that is right about in the world and the Trump cookie video makes me insane.

    I saw a big inflatable Christmas dinosaur at the end of my street last week. I thought it was a little weird/funny.

    Merry Christmas. I’ve enjoyed your blog for a long time. And missed your posts as you’ve been on a break. My family moves to MW in 1984. Bot my brothers graduated from MW HS. In 1987 and 1991. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
