Thought Points



  • At the baseball game Saturday night (which the Rangers won, winning the ALCS Championship thus advancing them to The World Series), I sat next to a 15 year old boy who was 6'5" and wearing a baseball glove. It's the safest I've ever felt sitting near third base.

  • Two things about me really irritate my mother: 1) I wash a shirt (or any item of clothing) after wearing it only a few hours and 2) I don't eat breakfast food very often.

  • "dim-witted simpleton" is not a redundancy if you are talking about my cat.

  • Most foods labeled as "haute cuisine" are things I would never eat and seem ridiculous to me. Fried egg with carmelized squash and tomatillo salsa? Give me a break.

  • One of the new shows that I enjoyed has already been canceled. What's the point of watching new shows? Why should we even bother? (It was "Free Agents.")

  • It's supposed to be cool today - in the 60's. I'm still cynical about that.

  • If I had to give my hair a nickname, it would be "Puff Daddy."

  • I told my daughter today that I think that feet, like ears and noses continue to grow as we age. She did not like this idea.

  • I hope I was wrong about the feet thing.

Congrats to the Rangers. As your baseball team advances to the World Series, so does my New Zealand All Blacks advance to the Rugby World Cup finals this coming Sunday. There has been much beer drinking over here. Have a great World Series.

I picked up Free Agents a couple of times and found it quite decent. Yet, they killed it and left on absolute crud. I keep wishing they'd bring Lie To Me back. I thought it was brilliant.

I think you're right abut the feet. I used to wear a 7.5, and I'm in an 8.5-9 now. Also, I met a little old lady once that told me "I am one inch shorter than I was when I was younger, and my feet are one inch longer." As if the inch had just slid around a corner or something.
