Even the savviest prognosticator strikes out every now and then.

When Billy Clyde makes a mistake, he acknowledges it the way a manly Texan should. I was wrong. Roger Williams did not give a Fidel Castro-length speech as I predicted. But he did mention Henry Ford. So I was right about it being car dealing-related; it was just a brief sales pitch.

Another lame prediction: Rutgers would be National Champions. As anyone who watched last night's game knows, Boise State is the new King of College Football. I'm on a Prarie View-style losing streak.

I further erred by sitting on the House floor. That was the most uncomfortable chair my butt has ever sat in. (I only stayed there about an hour, but I enjoy bitching.) It was also very crowded. Where's the Fire Marshall when you need him?

In hindsight, I should have gone to the Senate. But then again, no member of the Texas Senate extended me the courtesy of an invite. Bastards. I already miss Armbrister, and he's only been out of the Senate for about six hours. Not that Armbrister ever gave me an opening day pass, either.
That Texas Monthly blogger, Gary Cartwright, actually got mentioned on the House floor today during heated debate. The Pink Lady did not get mentioned, because she frightens House Members. And me. During a period of excrutiating boredness this afternoon, I walked across the street to fetch my laptop. Logged on and found something like 48,914 readers had left her comments. Looks like she's getting really wealthy.
On a slightly related note, why did people think there was going to be a Speaker's race? Oh well. If anyone is interested in inside baseball stuff, Craddick won big.

I'll give you props, man. You know the folks in the little show.

All due respect, just because the favorite wins doesn't mean a race didn't happen. It was a lot closer than the final vote would indicate, more along the lines of the 80-68 "amendment to the amendment" vote.
The question now is if the Speaker will pay any attention to this wake-up call.

Dear Dreamer:

Do I detect a note of seriousness in your voice? Don't make me refund your subscription and de-activate your password.

Miss M said...

You are the bomb. You are the best blogger in history. If I had on panties, and they were damp, and you were laying out a bill in committee, I would do more than throw them. I would hurl them with a decided fervor and wait patiently next to the committee clerk for your response.

For all that, I would like a free ten (10) year subscription and a tee shirt. With matching underwear.

Dear BC,

Mea Culpa. Being in close proximity to the big pink building with the semi-round top has that effect on me sometimes. Shan't happen again. I hope. Unless...ah, criminy, I make no promises. Stupid damn building.

I still want my dollar, but I'll let it slide.

On to more important issues: I hear tell there's a kid playing b-ball at UT that's the best since Astronaut Jones. Durant or something. Heard of him?

Tryin' one,


Billy Clyde said...

Dear Miss M:

Please provide me with your measurements, and BC will fill your order right away.

Dear Shake:

I have ALWAYS thought Durant would be great and most certainly never bet you a dollar to the contrary. Stop making stuff up.

Miss M said...

A size small will do, thank you very much. Send it in care of Ms. S. Thompson.
