Misc Stuff

Today while driving to work I saw a woman driving an HHR. She had custom license plates that said "THE HHR" How much creativity did it take to think that one up? More importantly she seriously paid extra for that...

Ok, your turn... what's the strangest/dumbest custom license plate you've seen recently?

This morning when I got up it was 24 degrees outside. On Thursday for beggars night it is supposed to be 62 degrees. Can it make up it's mind already? Really... no wonder everyone in my family is sick. My nose is running like a faucet.

Cold, hot... cold hot... pick a temperature already. I feel like I'm in one of those old sitcoms where the little kid is running in and out, in and out and the mom finally screams at him, "Jimmy, for the love of God... in or out!!"

So what's it like in your neck of the woods??

Gas prices... can we say OMG I'm in love?? The economy might be failing but this morning when I came to work gas was at $1.99. I think I formally need to take back this entry....

As of right now we are only at a about a 30% jump since 2003. 30% is a much more manageable number. It even cost me less than $30 to fill up my car this week and that was at $2.06.

I am loving, loving, loving these prices.

How about you?

I have had a cold too... it was 24 degrees in Omaha this morning.
An gas here is 2.17, but I think I will drive over the river and get gas in Council Bluffs this evening just so I can say I paid less than 2.00! :)

I don't live too far from you (I live in Illinois) so we're sharing this weather. My poor body has no idea how to prepare for it!


Winter is coming, that's for sure.

Today at lunch, I saw a LP that said "CONFSN." Okay, so does this mean "confession"? Does a priest drive the car? Or "confusion"? Because that's what it's causing me.

I think the one that says BLONDE and is put on upside down is the cherry on top of all dumb license plates. I'll admit, the upside down part is kinda cute, but why admit, on your car, to being dumb, and isn't it illegal?

And, it's $1.97 here... too bad I filled up yesterday!
