Gas Wars Part 3

On the way home, BP and Chevron are still out, as was the Chevron at Roswell and Dalrymple. Where there was gas, it was running $3.15 – $3.19. Sounds like that may be the stable price point for the time being. According to atlantagasprices.com, the average price right now is about $3.10. That’s a big …

Gas Wars Part 2

Checked the gas stations on JF this morning. BP and Chevron were out. Shell had gas for $3.15 as of 8:20 a.m., up from $2.89 as of 7:45 last night. The stations at Roswell and Dalrymple seemed to have gas, and didn’t seem to be gouging (though I didn’t get a real good look), but …

Gas Wars

Randy called me this afternoon to let me know about the area Gas Hysteria. I rolled my eyes. On the way home tonight I saw prices of $2.79 – $2.89 at the three stations on JF Road, and ridiculous lines waiting to get into each one. All because of rumors and paranoia. Yes, gas prices …

A Melty Day

Today was my intermediate class with Cristie. The other woman who had been in my beginning class and signed up for this one wasn’t able to make it, so I had a day of private instruction. Sweeeet! I got to try out a bunch of new things, and get hints and tips on what I …

More IKEA

There I was this afternoon, having just bid my drop-by son farewell (he came by to use my printer since his is dead), contemplating hooking up a propane tank and starting to melt glass. Out of nowhere, DH said “let’s go back down to IKEA; I want to get that wardrobe system.” OH.

IKEA

We made our third trip to IKEA today. Finally, we actually got to wander through there and see things without having to step on and shove people! The ostensible reason was to look at their drafting chair for my studio — turns out it was gone, and I liked the one at Sam Flax better …

“Must Love Dogs”

We went to see “Must Love Dogs” today. DH thought I’d enjoy it and he was right, though I don’t know whether I laughed more or cried more. I could sooooooo relate to Sarah’s predicament and experiences. Thank Goddess MY family never staged a “dating intervention” like hers did — I don’t think I could …

Why I bother to take these things, I don’t know…

the Wit (56% dark, 34% spontaneous, 16% vulgar) your humor style: CLEAN | COMPLEX | DARK You like things edgy, subtle, and smart. I guess that means you’re probably an intellectual, but don’t take that to mean you’re pretentious. You realize ‘dumb’ can be witty–after all isn’t that the Simpsons’ philosophy?–but rudeness for its own …

Happy Anniversary to Us!

Today is our very first wedding anniversary. Originally we had thought about going to DH’s family’s reunion in Opelika, but last week we thought better of it. Who really wants to spend their VERY FIRST anniversary with a bunch of relatives/in-laws, most of whom you don’t know and they don’t know you? So instead we …
