Anyone else ready to heave their breakfast when looking at your receipts after filling your tanks?
The little Getty that's just about thirty yards up the road from us is charging well over $3.00 a gallon. (They're full serve, too.)
Exxon this morning was $2.919. Stations in Marlboro are above $3.00 per gallon too.
There's a station in Alabama or Atlanta (I was half groggy when I heard it) that's somewhere around $6.00 a gallon.
Can't call it highway robbery anymore, cos we won't be on the highways if this keeps up. And I can't carpool with anyone to work because I'm the only one here to lives down my way. I'd have to drive 95% of the way to work just to meet up with anyone. How fucked up is that?

Working on my rant for tomorrow's entry into the [ profile] friday_fu. Those religious bastards are at it again...

The phones have been down and out since oh... at least before I dragged myself in here this morning. It's now just after 1400, and they're still out. This is going to kill our response time reports.
The only line that's working is the emergency line which goes out to the front desk. Okay, she takes incoming calls and puts them into our tracking system -- but we can't respond!!!

What kills me right now is the overwhelming sense of boredom. I have nothing else to do, support-wise. If I was alone here and didn't really care, I'd whip out my notebook and start scribbling my Morrow Project d20 rules (Powered by Stargate SG1, which is in turn powered by Spycraft from AEG. I figured this was the best system to use, since the classes were already there...). But alas, I'm not that brave around here. But it would like like I'm doing something other than sitting about.

Well maybe I'll work on it a bit tonight after I get home, and C is working on her stuff, and Marcus is asleep in the swing.

Weekend plans: housework. Still cleaning the place up, but we need to movie furniture around too.

Mom-in-law is expected up around the end of September, possibly around the same time as my Uncle Tim coming for a visit.

More later as news warrants...

1. Go into your LJ’s archive.
2. Find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. Find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. Tag 5 people on your friends list (if you so desire).

First string, he gets three strikes -- two of them in his last box! He ends up with a 135 for that string. However, he managed to spiral downhill from there (94 and 73... his average is in the low 90s). His candle did burn very brightly early on, but it started to fizzle.

Who to tag?

And anyone else who wants to bother...
