Thursday Random Thoughts 11/11/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-First and most importantly today is Veterans Day. Please say thank you to those who have served and protected us and allowed us to live in a free country.

-Since it's a holiday and schools are closed here my wife and son get to come and have lunch with me. I really love when they come and visit my office and most everyone here enjoys seeing my son. Plus he gets to pick where we eat and he loves Jimmy Johns!

- Someone from Lockheed Martin found the blog yesterday searching for information about the mystery missile over Los Angeles. I wonder if they liked my theory. HA HA!

-So far so good with the switch from DirecTV to cable except for one thing. The DVR only holds 25 hours of programming as opposed to 100 hours that our TiVo held. That is kind of disappointing but everything else so far is great.

-Apple Jolly Rancher candies are filled with awesome!

-I heard that Kanye West has taken back his apology to Taylor Swift for jumping up on stage and ruining her acceptance speech. Really Kanye? Are you really sure you want to do this? Taylor kicked your ass last year in the court of public opinion and my bet is she does it again. That is if you are still relevant enough to matter. No offense but you really haven't had a good song since Golddigger.

-So what is it with this new fad where women are wearing these shaggy high heeled boots with skirts and skinny jeans and stuff? I couldn't find an exact picture of what I'm talking about but these are close. I have seen this a lot especially out at the football games I have been to recently. Seems to be a trend for the late teens and 20 something ladies. I'm pretty sure I don't like it.

-I am loving my new smartphone! We were finally able to extend our plan and get smartphones this past weekend and decided to go all out. I got the Android. A 4G Samsung Epic with QWERTY keyboard and it is pretty amazing what all it can do. I am so glad that I didn't go with the Blackberry and it was certainly worth the wait. Only problem is the battery seems to run down very quickly. I know that this phone does a lot of stuff that can suck down battery life but you guys find the same thing is true with your smartphones?

-To continue this weeks "Google" theme I wanted to share this. Yesterday when researching my post I came across this website Bing vs. Google. Check it out sometime. It gives you search results at the same time from both Bing and Google. Kind of cool!

Until next time...

Kanye, Kanye, Kanye...He just never knows when to shut-up. I'm so glad I'm not married to him, I'd have to poisin him. I actually like Kanye's music but his ego is a real turn off and quite annoying.

Now to this DVR stuff..another down side, it will erase your shit quite quickly. I record a lot but even at 60% full the DVR will put warnings on all my shit and start deleting. I hate warning signals beside my shows. Just one of my things I guess.

Oh those hideous boots make me want to kick people. It has been a trend around here for years. One of my male friends had a boyfriend with long hair that matched the fur on his gigantic furry female boots. I hated him. Mostly for the boots. Imagine how fast those things get nasty and start to stink. Gross.

Oh, how I miss dvr. Hulu is OK but it's not as nice as dvr. And I too LOVE apple Jolley Ranchers. I don't give a hoot about any other flavor which my niece and nephew that stay with me after school think rocks. And I'll say it. Kanye is a douche. He no longer gets room on my ipod.

I hadn't heard Kanye West took back his apology, so I GOOGLED it to see what it was all about. Turns out he did this in an interview on one of our local radio stations (the one that is big with the teenage & young adult crowd and also the one I don't listen to.) Seems to me he just took ten steps backwards. He should have just left well-enough alone. I think he and Randy Moss should just be banished to some deserted island and they can hang out together in all their arrogance where no one has to put up with their idiocy.

I have some Ugg type boots. I like them becasue they keep my feet warm. I'm always cold. I'm not too big on the ones that Doc posted pictures of though.

I pay very little attention to Kanye West. I'm not a Taylor Swift fan either (uh, if you're going to use classics like Romeo and Juliet and A Scarlet Letter please understand the stories). If we stop paying attention they eventually disappear.

I'll trade you the Green Apple for the Cherry Jolly Ranchers. :) I love the cherry ones and can't stand the green apple!
