Yet Another Brain Dump.
Since I don’t have much time to write this week and since I did an extra post last week and since I haven’t popped the idea stack for more than three months, I’m going to do it now. Here’s another brain dump of thoughts that have piled up lately. Nothing life-changing or earth-shaking. Maybe Head-shaking, though.
Here’s a little news item you might have missed:
The [Boston Red Sox] officially released minor league lefthander Cody Kukuk, who was arrested in November on a robbery charge in his native Kansas. Kukuk was given an $800,000 bonus after being selected in the seventh round of the 2011 draft.
The kid got an 800K signing bonus and was on his way to a big league career and he commits robbery. Huh? Reminds me of the even more amazing story a couple years ago, involving a football player making half a million bucks a year who was arrested for shoplifting a cologne sample and two pair of underwear worth a total of $123.50.
I hope we hurry up development of the driverless car, cuz from what I’m seeing on the road, no one’s paying attention when they drive anyway.
From the “Who Invented This Language Anyway?” department: The words overlook and oversee are opposites yet flammable and inflammable mean the same thing.
True confession: Wonder no longer. I wrote the book of love
Why do people record messages on their cell phones that say, “I can’t come to the phone right now”? Isn’t the whole point of a cell phone that you don’t have to come to the phone? What did I miss?
I thought it was a short-lived fad, but it seems books and movies about zombies and vampires simply refuse to die. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised.
Have you seen the movie about the guy who used to be a criminal who tried to go straight but was forced by some bad guys to do one last job? Which movie was that you ask? Just about all of them.
It’s about 10 degrees outside. I heat my house to 70. And I have a big box I store food in that cools down to below freezing. Am I the only one who sees a problem here?
A business in Santa Barbara: Ye Olde Deli and Thai Food. That’s covering all your bases. Oh yeah, and as you can see in the photo to the right, you can also get Boba Bubbles in your Olde Thai Deli drink.
That’s all I have time for. I have to go to my cell phone.
I live in an old house in Sweden and in the corner of the kitchen there is a cupboard with an adjustable air vent through the north wall at the top.The shelves have cut outs round the edges so that the cold air can flow to the bottom and out .The vent is the only air inlet on the ground floor so the wood stove provides the suction.
Great! Finally a note of common sense, although we had to go all the way to Scandinavia to find it. Now if we can get a movie about a zombie who tries to go straight but is forced by vampires to eat one last brain…
One major drawback to churning out posts as quickly as this one is the lack of time allowed for research. In the cold light of day, I decided to investigate the story about the football player theft mentioned above. It occurred just this past October and was a player for the Dallas Cowboys. The full story can be found online through many sources. Here’s one: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/10/14/cowboys-player-cologne-underwear_n_5984264.html
