Okay, we have all been saying it / thinking it for some time now. But, now it is in print on CNN.com! Gas prices recently jumped quite a bit up to about $3.13/$3.15 around here. Now they are saying don't be surprised if some areas see $4.00/gal by spring! Come on. Now we are just being silly. It's so outrageous. And don't forget, with gas prices still increasing, that will mean other commodities such as FOOD will continue to rise. I wanted to keep my truck and pay it off before I got a new vehicle, but I can't see myself being able to afford $4.00/gal on a truck that gets only around 15 mpg. It's just a waiting game. A waiting for the inevitable.

I haven't seen a good Pay Per Post in quite a while. And I still have a Google rank! Maybe the Real Rank thing is starting to kick in because my Real Rank sucks. Well, at least surveys are still coming in. I have about 4,000 points at Lightspeed and I don't know what to do with it. I could get about $30 via PayPal or I could find a pretty cool gadget, movie or toy. We'll see. Come on Pay Per Post. Send me some opps!

We did go to the fair last Wednesday. I think it was the first time I have ever been and it wasn't an armband day. Because of that, it was dead... which was cool. No lines and no waiting. We checked out all the crafts and shows. It was Honey Day so there was a few honey booths. We also rode a few rides, but they were not as much fun without the crowds and lines. The best part is, of course, the fair food. We had sausage and peppers, cheese steak, corn dogs, beer, elephant ears and ice cream. We also won Sammy a toy fish which was destroyed in 5 minutes. Cheap prizes. Although it rained some and got cold we still had a good time.

Nichole and I bought a new TV last night!

I see that Mr. Fab got to go to the State Fair already this year. It just started on the 7th and Nichole and I are hoping to go. I haven't been in a couple of years and Nichole has only been once. As a kid, we would go almost every year. I always loved going to the fair and I especially couldn't wait to ride on the rides, which we always did last after seeing the craft shows, exhibits, animals and shows. Oh, and don't forget about Cracker Country which I also always enjoy. So, we will see. I really hope we get a chance to go. I might just have to take a day off of work.
Yesterday was the service for my Grandmother. There was quite a bit of family there and a lot that I had not seen in many years. The service was very nice (totally different than what I am used to) and the words spoke by family members were comforting. Afterwards we had everyone over to the house for food, socializing and remembrance. It was very nice and for the most part pleasant. Plus, Nichole and I were able to come home with some free luggage for our trip in September.
Friday evening, I believe I sat in the worst traffic I have ever been in. At about 5:30pm, John from the cell phone joint, called me and asked me if I would go all the way out to our Tampa store and work for the rest of the night. Apparantly they were looking like garbage. So with just a little over 3 hours of the night left, I was supposed to drive 40 mins (normal time) to University Mall and close out the night. Yeah, okay...whatcha going to pay me? $50? Okay!

For my readers that are not family or already aware, my Grandmother passed away this Wednesday after a battle with Pancreatic cancers. Pancreatic cancer is one of the most deadly and untreatable cancer due to its un-detectability. Nichole and I will be going over for the memorial service on Saturday.
