Thursday Random Thoughts 3/13

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-There is no reason that I wasn't in a 14 car pile up this morning other than a few alert drivers and God looking over me. There was apparently a car stopped in the fast lane on the interstate this morning and I skidded to a stop about 6 inches from the bumper of the truck in front of me and the truck behind be barely got stopped... The truck behind him skidded through the median grass. Wheew. I found a new place to pray this morning.

-I heard on the radio that Matthew McConaughey is going to name his son Bud... after his favorite beer. Yeesh I sure hope that is just a rumor.

-Just in case there are any TSA airport screeners reading this blog, I Love you guys, you are the best! (you don't wanna mess with those guys because they can give you a serious bad day)

-Here is a first. Someone (not associated with this blog) who I blogged about in last weeks TRTs contacted me by e-mail and requested that I remove their name from my random thoughts... so I did. I actually think it was pretty cool that they found the blog by google search! and I invited them to read and comment anytime. Oh and someone also found our blog this week by googling "Egg beater Bachelor Party" HA!

-Thanks to everyone who commented on this segment last Thursday... 164 comments in all Wheew, it sure was fun! I hope that you people are bored every Thursday.

-I promise you all that there was a girl sitting in the front row of my church this past Sunday who had Amanda Overmeyer hair. I mean it looked just like it, you know that skunk meets Cruella DeVille look. I ain't lying because I have witnesses. Please Lord do not let that look become a fashion hairstyle.

-So Brittney Spears in addition to dominating this weeks poll is now being given an allowance of $1500 per week to teach her how to spend responsibly. Ummmmm can I have an allowance like that?

-Why the heck does Jimmy Buffett have to come to play Charlotte on a Tuesday night? Come on Brother Jimmy, we deserve a Saturday Night. Of course his answer to me would be "It's Saturday night somewhere"

-Last weekend my wife and I volunteered to work on a house for Habitat for Humanity. It sure showed me that I am not cut out to build houses. Yikes I am not good at house framing. However it was a really good experience and I will do it again. If you get a chance I suggest that you give up a few hours and try it.

-We already have a poster named Leap O' Faith here on the blog... Now I want to find one named Walk O' Shame.

-Here is a heads up for Harry Potter fans. The 7th book Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is actually going to be made into two movies because producers don't want to shorten it and leave out any of the story. I think this is a really good idea. While reading it I wondered how they would convey everything in the story. Btw - If you haven't read the books and just seen the movies you are missing A LOT! I did not start out a fan but became one this summer. I read all seven books this past August. For the most part I think they are brilliant.

-Last night on CNN Campbell Brown showed Eliot Spitzer's 2006 Governor campaign TV ad...The slogan? "Bring the Passion back to Albany" Uhhhh You just go ahead and keep on believing that one Eliot... What a nimrod.

-Speaking of evil politicians... Maybe Hillary should run for Governor of New York?

-On American Idol Tuesday did anyone else notice the guy sitting over Randy's shoulder? He looked exactly like Bob "Bulldog" Brisco from the TV show Frasier played by Dan Butler. He was there last night too right near Jim Carrey. Am I imagining things or was that him? Did anyone else notice that?

-Dawn Wells the actress who played Marianne on Gilligan's Island was recently given a short jail term for a marijuana arrest. Sounds to me like maybe her character's name should have been Mary Jane instead.

-Doc

(Oh and thank you to all who volunteered to watch our dog while we are on vacation... We have him taken care of now!)

Spitzer brought the "passion" back, alright...I guess he should've specified as to exactly what he meant by that!

...and no, Doc, I didn't notice him on AI. I have it recorded on DVR, though, so I will have to go and take a peek!

Doc said...

If you know who I am talking about Bulldog Briscoe you have to take a look... On the performance show he was right there behind Randy and last night he was right there next to Jim carrey when he had that stupid elephant costume on. I swear it's him.

Anonymous said...

I do know who he is...I have to try and remember to look tonight when I get home. I think I erased the performace show cuz I watched it live, but I'm pretty sure I still have last night's results show.

I was kind of "forced" into reading the Harry Potter series last summer too, and although I was EXTREMELY apprehensive, it was some of the best reading I've done in ages. I was happy to hear about them splitting book seven, but I think it has little to do with making sure they got everything from the book (Book 5 was my favorite and the movie SUCKED) and lots to do with more $$ now that the book series has ended.

Karen said...

I think Matthew McConaughey might be naming the baby "BUD" after his favorite plant.

I have ask you why you are so "lame" that you cannot attend a concert on Thursday night?? LOL.

My uncle did Habitat for Humanity down in New Orleans last year with his church. I am more of the writing a check kind of volunteerer. (aka Lazy) But I have seen the Amish framing a house and it does look like hard work.

Becky said...

Shit, I'll be "Walk O Shame" for you!

Doc said...

Dana - Order of the Phoenix was most definetely a great book but the movie could not pick up on all of Harry's brooding, isolation, and the introspection that the book does. The movie does however very effectively protray the strong 3rd Reich theme with the Ministry. Half Blood prince ain't going to be any piece of cake either... I wonder how many people still don't know about that ending.

Karen - ROFL @ favorite plant... And it a Tuesday night... not a Saturday. I want Saturday because I am now getting old and I have a 9 month old who we could leave with someone easier on a Sat.

Doc said...

I always know I could count on you Auntie Becky... ROFL!

Lu' said...

I think it sucks that Brit has to pay her dad $2500 to give her the $1500 dole out.
That would have been an excellent way to read the Potter series. I was a late comer and got to read three of them one right after the other but then had to wait for the rest. I have all books and movies. Maybe I'll read them again.

Lu' said...

Doc when you get home, check out my post of an impersonation of Amanda by Freddy Kruger.

Doc said...

Lu - I am already laughing about the Amanda Freddy Kruger thing and I cant' even see it until I get home... OMG I wish I had thought of it... Her Marlboro accent does kind of sound like Freddy...

The Mountain Cat said...

Doc the Matthew McConaughey baby name Bud is true. In fact it may a trend. Brad Pitt said he originally wanted to name his baby Amstel but Angelina prefered Shiloh.

Doc said...

My wife would NOT have been happy if our birth announcements had gone out welcoming our new bundle of joy Heineken Light into the world.....

Karen said...

Doc - bring your kid to the concert. his first show should be something other than The Wiggles

Bina said...

Okay, who is this someone and what is a TRC??? I'm dying here. You HAVE to tell me!

So, after my 5th beer last night and watching Idol at the same time, I said to my husband, "Oh my God! That guy looks exactly like Jim Carey!" For some reason, I thought it was a contestant. Hubby looks at me just laughs. Hmmm

Yea, I read that about Mary Ann, seems she was drinking too, huh? 69 and still going strong.

Doc said...

Karen - I wish I could take him to the show... He loves music but good grief he needs to be at least 2 years old before going to a Buffett show... :p

Bina - I am certainly not going to type the name again of who it was... but I did invite them to comment on my blogging... TRT = Thursday Random Thoughts

And that Jim Carrey thing where he was on stage - you can tell that was not planned - they were pissed he was there because they were short for time.

As American as Apple Pie said...

I will vouch for Doc in regards to the Amada O look alike. I hate hair like that! It makes you look schizophrenic.

Bina said...

Doc, you guessed the mood right on!!!!

Doc said...

Apple - Thank you !!! - I told ya'll I had witnesses!

Bina - What can I say, I am clairvoyant... ( I hope you liked the 'itchy' part) :p

As American as Apple Pie said...

I was going to name my next kid Lager. Very burly sounding, I think.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Does anyone else think that Jim Carrey has gotten pathetic and annoying?

Doc said...

Does anyone else think that Jim Carrey has gotten pathetic and annoying? - I do not recognize this thought as being valid because "gotten" would imply that at some point previously he was not annoying and pathetic. Ummmm hello Fire Marshall Bill.

As American as Apple Pie said...

Well, I'm going to take the advice I gave MTC yesterday and take a Claritin and put on my man pants. Allergies Suck!!! Catch y'all later.

Lu' said...

I think Jim felt like an idiot in the suit. Ooh what some guys will do for money.

Doc said...

The only worthwhile thing that Jim Carrey did as far as I am concerned is introduce me to the music of Harry Connick Jr. from the movie The Mask.

Single In The City said...

I Heart Harry Connick Jr. now I have heard of him for I love blues and Jazz!! Okay is a hot Mess! I wish a lot of things on her then I remember I am Christian and I digress! *sigh*


I am going to name my kid Le'Sutter Home Moscato after my favorite wine, do you think it is cute?

Not a Harry Potter Fan at all!

When are you leaving for your trip?

Shalom

Jay said...

You got 164 comments on one blog post? Awesome!

I worked on a Habitat house a couple of times. Dang it was hard work! Of course I didn't know what the heck I was doing, but still. We stayed VERY busy all day long.

Jeff B said...

Would somebody please slap the stupid out of Britney. I just gave up cable for the sake of the household budget and this retard has to learn how to control herself with $6,000.00 a month. WTF?

DirkStar said...

I'm alive!

Second day of Insulin and I can't begin to express how much better I'm feeling.

Did you miss me?

Man was I ill...

My sugars were nearly 550 and higher.

So I'm back bitches, and now I can blame my bad behavior on the medication.

It makes me do crazy things!

As American as Apple Pie said...

Jeff B--I had to give up cable AND manicures so I hear ya. Maybe Brit wouldn't be quite as screwed up if she had to actually live in the real world!

Harry Potter rocks! Although I haven't read all of the books yet, just the last 2. But I saw the first 5 movies! Yes, Doc, I know. I should be chastised.

Traveling in cars on highways is in itself a very dangerous daily activity that most of us really think very little of. Now, put two heavy hunks of metal and plastic traveling in opposite directions in excess of 60 MPH on a two lane road no more than 2 to 3 feet apart when they meet drivin by only your God knows who.... Two to three feet apart at your 60 MPH plus their 60 MPH is not even a breath of your life! And just think, that other person might be trying to post a comment on a handheld computer! Every moment I'm behind the wheel, I try to remember to be scared shitless!
Funny stuff Huh? HaHaHa

Jim Carrey never flipped my switch!

I'd love to Tuesday night it with Jimmy!

Always was a Mary Ann kind of guy!
