Bag of Randomness for Monday, December 7, 2020


Yup, we put up the Christmas tree this weekend. And yes, we have Baby Yoda (aka, The Child, aka Grogo) at the top of the tree. I love it.


I’m looking forward to the new Obi Wan Kenobi series which I know is set on the desert planet of Tatooine, so this shooting location was a bit of a head scratcher.

A posting by the Film & Television Industry Alliance on productionlist.com says “Star Wars: Kenobi” is set to shoot in Boston on Jan. 4, 2021.


I like it better when we referred to this area as the Metroplex than North Texas.


WifeGeeding’s COVID-19 symptoms haven’t really gotten any better. She usually avoids spicy foods, but decided to try Chic-Fil-A’s spicy chicken sandwich to see if it would do anything. She said while she couldn’t taste anything, she still felt the spicy connection you notice when eating spciy food. So much so, she didn’t even finish her sandwich. One of friends has had the virus twice, but his wife and two kids who live with him never caught it.

I was told you could call 211 if you have COVID-19 related questions and concerns. I’m not sure I knew it existed.

Only 27 Republican lawmakers in Congress have acknowledged Joe Biden is the legitimate winner of the 2020 presidential election. That’s outrageous, and it’s outrageous so many of the people who put them there aren’t upset about it.

Hey, if anyone would have the power to sway an election, wouldn’t it have been the person in place of power?


One thing I’m looking forward to come inauguration day is to remove myself as a follower of the current president’s non-government Twitter profile. I’m tempted to do it now, but still feel like I should be following the leader of my country on Twitter.


Pro-Trump Attorney Caught Encouraging Florida Republicans to Register to Vote Via His Brother’s Georgia Address

Bill Price is seen in a now-deleted Facebook Live video, speaking to the Bay County GOP members in Florida on Nov. 7th. It was about half an hour after the election was called for the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket.

“We absolutely have to hold the Senate and we have to start fighting back, and we have to do whatever it takes,” Price said in the video. “And if that means changing your address for the next two months, so be it. I’m doing that. I’m moving to Georgia and I’m gonna fight and I want you all to fight with me.”

Price told the group he’s moving to his brother’s address in Hiram, Georgia in order to register to vote in the January runoff. He repeats and spells and his brother’s name and address, as members of the group jot it down. They can be heard mumbling the address in the background while some write.

“We can truly register at that address?” one woman asks.

“Sure,” Price answers, adding they have to plan to show a move, suggesting they have mail sent there.


Star Trek reference?
