Day 370 of 365 More.

You know, I’ve never gotten so few views of nekkid girl pictures as I did with those I posted today. What the hell is up with that? And it really is some of my best work besides.

Not much exciting to talk about today. Took Amaya and Cade to meet their ride back to West Virginia (they had been staying here the last couple days) and then picked up Steph from work and we went shopping and then ate Indian food.

The big exciting thing I did today? Filled up the gas tank to Steph’s van for her. Go me with the proactivity. Tomorrow I may even mow the lawn.

Still don’t have a job. Might call the one I want tomorrow just to see if there’s any news. It’s been more than a month since I’ve heard from them.

    My wallet hurts just looking at this.

    @Rush Nerd: heh… yeah, that’s a problem too… we were all excited because we found a gas station that happened to only be charging $2.75 for gas. What a bargin!!! then I thought about that. I was excited to be paying $2.75 a gallon. What the hell has this world come to?

    we were down to 2.59 locally and i used a local groceries loyalty card to save 3 cents on top of that… and i was like you, how did i come to accept these prices.!

    @jwill9311: I want to get one of those "Mr. Fusion" engines. That might help.

    I don’t pay for gas at all. D: < sad face. Yet :O < yay for living car free face.

    um… I just can’t stop mysefl from pointing out that we still have some of the lowest gas prices in the industrialized world. We’re nowhere near the $6.50 a gallon or so that gets paid in Amsterdam (and most of that is tax). It’s over $4/gal in Japan, over $5/gal in most of Europe. I just wish our costs went less to greedy oil companies and more to environmental action to clean up after the use of it. *sigh*

    okay. sorry to rain on the rantyness.

    p.s. I don’t know why people didn’t flock to your nekkid girl photos.

    I thought you were getting cuffed and stuffed when I saw the thumbnail.

    Gas prices here confuse the crap out of me. I can’t figure out if our gas is cheaper or more expensive.

    Crazy Americans and your non-metric system.

    Anyways, I love Steph in this one. 🙂

    I don’t care if it IS cheaper than other countries! All that means is that it’s a bigger CRIME there! Gas Companies & Insurance Companies – In the words of a very wise man, "It’s ALL a RACKET!!!"

    @Chaparral [Kendra]: Living car free certainly isn’t the answer. That would cause many other problems.

    @mickeysacks: I always hate that argument. Partly becuase its basically saying "it sucks more elsewhere, so it must not suck here." which isn’t really valid, but more importantly, the comparison is kinda irrelevant. The cost of a good/service in another culture has no direct analog with it in our country since we can’t isolate the services. It’d be like saying "we don’t need gun control here, because in Iraq people have Uzis" or "Bush is a great president. Because look at Castro." or even "poverty isn’t a problem in the US. It’s a problem in Ethiopia." There are so many differences between the US and Amsterdam that isolating one without a control group doesn’t really show anything. I mean $6.50 a gallon? What are they smoking? 😉

    @MegaBee: heh… you were assuming another cookie incident?

    @jessi.: well, for you its totally gonna be more expensive cuz your dollars are only worth like 14 cents, right? 😛 and I love steph in every pic. 😉

    @lrayholly: yep. It’s all a racket. Definitely.

    I know it isn’t. But for some reason I felt proud commenting about my environmental happiness on a pumping gas photo. It was one of those weird moments where you’ve been taken over with pride for no really good reason.

  12. August 17, 2007 at 10:01 am

    @Chaparral [Kendra]: oh… sorry. I didn’t mean to come across as snippy as I probably did.

  13. August 18, 2007 at 12:27 am

    Gas prices have been dropping a cent or two every few days here for a couple weeks, then jumped UP 13 cents overnight. *sigh*

  14. August 18, 2007 at 12:42 am

    @Sick Little Monkey: yeah… that sucks… *sigh*

  15. August 18, 2007 at 12:46 am

    Don’t sweat it :] you’d have to toss rocks at my face to piss me off.

  16. August 18, 2007 at 12:48 am

    @Chaparral [Kendra]: ok… good. 🙂

  17. August 25, 2007 at 4:45 am

    in NL it’s about 7.5 USD/gallon. just sayin’

    edit: hehe just read your rebuttal

    i can’t even afford a car! whatevs

  18. August 25, 2007 at 10:22 am

    @wimdejonge: heh. Yeah. The point is, I can’t afford gas. How much you can’t afford it by is irrelevant. Once you can’t afford it, that’s all that matters. 🙂

  19. May 19, 2008 at 10:00 am

    Chris – who CAN afford gas these days? Well, except for Bush, Cheney, their cronies and the oil company execs. Even the gas stations are being hit hard by it (they only make about 20% max). Ugh. I live in Rural Iowa where I travel about 30 miles to get anywhere and use almost 1/4 tank of gas each day. AND I have a car that gets decent mileage, but who can afford to just up and sell a car that was new in 05 to buy a prius – especially when those cars aren’t worth anything anymore because they’re not hybrid. *taking a breath* I live in the middle of the corn belt – the HOME of the cornbelt, and i’m learning to HATE corn – a lot.

    *edit* Rant over.

    @simplysilly: I’m just going to buy a magic carpet.
