Bag of Randomness for Wednesday, September 18, 2019

  • Apparently the substitute teacher in BoyGeeding’s class doesn’t like for him to shorten his name on any of his paperwork.
  • If you are a local and totally out of date night ideas, here is something new to try (at least for me), it takes up two hours and costs $45 per person – (WFAA) Body-painting artist Breanna Cooke’s ‘Paint Your Date’ events are a new idea for date night in Dallas.
  • Today’s dose of ‘MURICA! – Pizza Hut and Kellogg partner to create stuffed Cheez-It pizza
  • Another Texas pickup truck owner venting about highway traffic with blunt stickers on their vehicles. And to think our state motto “Friendship”.
  • I know absolutely nothing about the Texas Secretary of State, but compared to other secretaries of state, she’s the most attractive that I can recall.
  • I would have been more impressed if he used sign-language in his recorded message, but hey, nice move, Peyton – Texas School for the Deaf wins new football equipment, message from Peyton Manning
  • Journalist Cokie Roberts died yesterday, President Trump offered his thoughts, “I never met her. She never treated me nicely. But I would like to wish her family well. She was a professional and I respect professionals. I respect you guys a lot, you people a lot. She was a real professional. Never treated me well, but I certainly respect her as a professional.” Well, at least he wouldn’t say anything of the like about the death of a senator of his party who was a POW. At least the man is consistent.
  • Speaking of journalism, it’s been excruciating watching Norah O’Donnell anchor The CBS Evening News. One criticism I have is the number of times she says “Breaking news.” I’m almost certain she says it at least twice a broadcast, and the news isn’t even breaking. Yesterday, at the top of the newscast, she said it was “breaking news” that a hurricane has hit Texas. Dude, a forecasted hurricane is not breaking news. If the hurricane suddenly lifted a great white shark from the Gulf of Mexico and it landed on the roof of the Astrodome a few minutes before the broadcast, that would be breaking news.
  • I’ve really enjoyed watching HGTV’s four-episode series on renovating the Brady Bunch house with the cast of the children actors on the show.  I was a bit surprised at this fact, HGTV filmed over 9,000 hours for the four-hour series.

    I always liked Cokie Roberts and respected her opinions. She was sharp. I’m not a CNN hater, but they are the absolute worst at over using “breaking news.” I am a tailgate message hater, but he’s not wrong.
