Unique Randomness

My random thoughts…brought to you once a week!

  • I want to wear one of those J.J. Watt elbow braces….like…all the time.
  • Newsflash: This car is just a tad popular with the locals.
  • Ever seen the people who pull up to a garage sale and get out of their ride? I’m talking about the exact moment when they open the car door and step foot onto the pavement. It’s like watching a ravenous wolf with a bad cowlick.
  • If your car is under $50,000, don’t get vanity plates. In fact, just don’t get vanity plates.
  • Best Quote of the Weekend: “He really just hits the hole…then explodes.” –Sports announcer in reference to Houston Texan Arian Foster’s running.
  • I am addicted to Mio (any flavor). It’s delicious and refreshing.
  • Props to Michael Roberts of Arkansas Foodies for writing this strong piece. I’m guessing he still hasn’t heard back from the guy.
  • My children haven’t “accidentally” kicked or stepped on my nuts in over two months. This is my longest such stretch of time to date.
  • The Main Street Food Truck Festival in Little Rock is this Saturday. Trying my best to make it out. Request: Please food trucks, limit your menu to 2-3 items…that way, every one wins! It all about fast service at these events.

  • I am proud to announce that someone named Solo Dizzle briefly “followed” me on Twitter. Jealous?
  • Please folks…do not post 3-D ultrasound pics on FB. It scares the shit out of me.
  • Do you remember those people in high school who were a little different, but also kinda cool? They grew up, got a cool job, went to cool concerts that only cool people knew about, and drank cool beer. And true to form, when it comes to naming their kids, they always go with cool names. It’s why I’ll inevitably run into a Brunson or Foley or Ashon or Prescott or Miller or Stockton at every birthday party.
  • The “90’s on 9” satellite radio channel is good stuff.
  • Armadillo Update: For those of you following along, I have a rogue armadillo who’s treating itself to Digfest 2012 in my front yard. I’ve sprinkled cayenne pepper and even had the pest control guy come out and treat the lawn. Guess what? The little b*tch showed up again at 5:15 a.m. this morning. I ran out and winged the f*ckstick with a rock. He got away, but a clear message was sent.
  • Arkansas accents are far different from Texas accents.
  • My new most hated show: So You Think You Can Dance.
  • I think Lance Armstrong should be strapped to a chair and forced to listen to Sugar Ray’s Every Morning until he tells the truth.
  • For goodness sake 50-year-old Roger Clemens, stop highlighting your hair!
  • I miss those delicious maple, crème-filled cookies from Trader Joe’s.
  • Syd Sounds Off: My 3-year-old’s message to mom as she’s leaving for work this morning: “Goodbye mom. Don’t get naked…and watch your boobies.”

  • I have just one personal goal for the Rio Olympics. It is to lose 30 pounds and be able to fit into this bad boy. That sound you heard was my wife throwing up.
  • I wouldn’t make my worst enemy listen to the entire Kidz Bop 22 album.
  • New show I love…well , really like: Picked Off.
  • Have you ever played the board game Clue? I have. In fact, I get the pleasure of playing it every other night. I’d almost rather listen to Kidz Bop. Almost.
  • Who doesn’t like synchronized swimming? At the very least it brings me back to my all-time favorite SNL skit.
  • I’ve always enjoyed minor league baseball. Tomorrow, here in Little Rock, I’ll go check out our local team…the Travelers. Added bonus: they are playing the Hooks.
  • Ensure Clear (Blueberry Pomegranate) is quite tasty.
  • Okra is so underrated.
  • I finally watched The Town. I found it to be a little slow moving and blah. #sarcasm
  • My last Krispy Kreme visit: 2 donuts and a small container of donut holes = $4.28. BTW…the donuts were for the kids. I refuse to eat fried bread that cost that much.

  • Liam Neeson is a very funny man. Don’t believe me? Watch this.
  • I received an email from Groupon last week with the subject line “Classic Facial.” Think I’ll pass.
  • Quick food thoughts from my Houston trip: The food at Triniti was small and average. The kolaches at Old Towne were huge and spectacular. And Nouveau Antique Art Bar is a cool spot for drinks.
  • My 3-year-old daughter dips her grapes in ranch dressing before consumption. Also, she’ll only eat Gold Fish crackers in a bowl, soaked in water.
  • Why does Michael Phelps always look like he just smelled a horrible fart?
  • There’s an excessive amount of road kill on the Arkansas highways. I know….duh!
  • Airplane A-Hole: When the plane lands and comes to a complete stop, he’s the guy who stands up and moves ahead of you during the exit.
  • The Houston Astros are absolutely the worst Major League team I’ve ever seen.
  • I’m just not feeling these Olympics. Not sure why…I usually get into them.
  • Any idea of where this picture was taken?  And be specific.
