Random Thoughts (by request)

  1. I've gotten a little lazy with the random thoughts, but my audience is growing restless.
  2. I've learned that both Verizon and the hot tub salespeople are overly persistent.
  3. I liked Larry (formerly of Hastings, Nebraska) until I learned that his "weekday" house was on Manhattan Beach. Yes, his weekday house.
  4. Is $700 too much for golf irons?
  5. So far...yes, yes it is.
  6. Flew my brother out last weekend to help me move, but since moving was delayed it turns out I flew my brother out to play Trivial Pursuit and Modern Warfare 2.
  7. The rain has finally stopped and the motorcycle has finally left the garage.
  8. Since gas prices have gone up I haven't been able to fill up the truck because the pump won't pre-approve me for that much.
  9. I do not, I repeat, do not like being deposed.
  10. Hopefully, this was enough to entertain those who may be stuck in South Dakota.

Random Thoughts - St. Patrick's Day Edition


  1. I may just start doing this on holidays only. I think I can keep myself on that schedule.
  2. Ireland is not a country. It is an island. Republic of Ireland is a country.
  3. April 15th - Tax Day and according to new documents the day I finally, absolutely and most assuredly will close on my house. We'll see.
  4. St. Patrick was not Irish; he was English. Also note that England is not an island. It is a country on the island of Great Britain.
  5. My sister implied that I was a nerd for having a favorite presidential speech. I wanted to dispel all doubt...thus trivia.
  6. The first St. Patrick's Day parade was in Boston almost 200 years before the first one in Dublin.
