little things

1. I started juicing, now that I am reading a book by Dr. Sandra Cabot. This week I used spinach in the drinks, for protein and to offset the acid from lemon, grapefruit and orange. The drinks aren't horrible. The great thing about juicing is that a lot of carrots get used, and therefore I buy in bulk, and that brings the cost per pound of carrots down to 70 to 80 cents.

2. Gas is now officially over $4.019/gallon where I live.

3. I believe my neighbour's dog is senile, as she is old and was whining outside at 2:35 am. We suggested to the neighbor that he bring his dog to a vet for a checkup, as she was outside and whining when it was cold and wet, and older animals are likely to be uncomfortable in those weather conditions, as they have thin skin, sensitive bones, and possible cognition decline. But why take care of your elderly best friend when you can irritate your neighbours to the point where they have to move if they want to claim their property rights of a quiet night?

4. This one is for baselle:

Robin Gibb undergoes surgery - my friend and I were at Gainsbourg last night when she pointed to my price book cover and said, "I predict he will be the next to go." "I'm goin' nowhere, somebody help me."

5. Staff Sergeant Robert Bales, who is charged with murdering 16 Afghans, had

mortgage finance problems. His house was briefly on the market days before the murder of the Afghan civilians. This is why I am afraid to confront my underwater-mortgage neighbours about their suffering animals. It's said that Staff Sergeant Bales had Post-Trauma Stress Disorder, and I believe that, as my

cousin was a staff sergeant from the same company, and was diagnosed with PTSD before he was shipped to Afghanistan. I am told that my cousin killed civilians as well, but I cannot verify that. “I don’t see how you can do this,” he said, “and not be damaged.”

6. My Jeopardy! tryout sucked. I got maybe 44 out of 50 questions.

    Its been $4.25 a gallon here.

    Trying calling the police to complain about the dog.

  2. Joanne Says:

    In Boston,Ma. I just paid $3.85 a gallon. Better than $4.00 a gallon, but getting closer to the $4.00.

  3. LuckyRobin Says:

    The station I filled up at 2.5 weeks ago has gone up ten cents. It is now at $4.169 per gallon.

  4. ME2 Says:

    I paid $4.129 this morning. This was AFTER my $.03/gallon Kroger discount. Frown

    Lots of all 4s on the gas signs everywhere. Only the cheapest ARCO gas might be 3 something. Many new faces on the bus. Course it could be that I'm taking different buses.

    Cheering on Robin Gibb. Most of the gang is sending d-wishes to a certain D. Cheney also.

    Hey, a grant writer position opened up. Want me to send it to you?

    I am living in a part of the world where gas was already at well over $6.50/gallon (in an even worse economy), but the people here usually convert their vehicles to run on propane and methane. It's significantly cheaper, and it leads to a cleaner burning fuel as well. I have read all of these doom-and-gloom stories about safety issues, but I've been here over 3 years and have never seen a single problem. I would rather have the insurance of a cheaper fuel, but it's supposed to not be feasible in the US, for some reason. If they can do it here in SE Europe, though? Come on.

  7. PauletteGoddard Says:

    Right, Jerry. Gas is pricier everywhere else outside the US I've been to (east Asia, Canada, UK). Those areas have rails and bicycles. Where I live there's rail, but it's presently for the south part of the city, and drivers here like to fiddle with their phones and electronic gadgets so they can claim distraction when they run over bicyclists. The parties manipulating the voters here are framing the rising price of oil so as to omit the fact that certain oil-exporting trading nations are no longer contractually obligated to underprice their gallons to the US, and are also accommodating China's demands for oil.
