Gas

I have heard reports that gasoline will be up to $5.00 come summer. I thought that that was a ridiculous number, even though gas is back up a $3.00 a gallon down here in San Diego.

However, the above prophecy may come to pass. Consider this gas station in New York; gas is up to $4.50. So at least we in California have something to be thankful for, in addition to the terrific weather, proximity to anything we could want, and the many other perks of living here.

I wonder if I can convince my boss into setting up a cot in my cubicle so that I can save on gas during the work week. Maybe I'll make him an offer he can't refuse...

Hmm...but that's assuming he likes parfait. According to a popular cartoon, even ogres like parfait, but what if my boss doesn't?

I know! I'll offer him gold dubloons! Now, all I need to do is find sunken treasure from a pirate ship. Who doesn't like sixteenth century Spanish gold?

Genius.

Lastnight I wasn't able to fill up my tank because they only allow you to buy $50 of gas with a debit card. $50 didn't fill up my tank.

I'm buying a scooter.

Wow. That's horrible. Pretty soon we're just going to start seeing cars flying the skull and crossbones, running other people off the road so that they can take their gas.

I always want to know what was so bad that the "author" chose to remove the post! What DID you say, author-who-removes-post? And is putting mattresses on top of cars a new form of tagging, because there was one on my car this morning.

P.S. AC, could you please blog about this: http://www.rte.ie/arts/2006/0418/cruiset.html

Because I can't put the words "Cruise to eat nutritious placenta" on my clean little blog, but I figure a place that smashes emo guys with fast cars might be the perfect fit....

I will post about that, but I've got to wait about that.

As far as the mattress, I was convinced that you put it on there yourself so that, when you got sleepy, you could take a nap.

wow...so much attention for removing my post! I should go around removing all my posts and remain a woman of mystery....
