Seriously, people need to chill

September 14th, 2008 at 10:56 pm

So, y'all know I typically stock up for the week ahead on Sunday mornings ... and even though my gas tank is 3/4 full, I wanted to top it off as so many people were going crazy yesterday.

Yeah, every gas station in a 10 mile radius was out of gas ... I called some of my friends who live on the opposite side of Atlanta, and they reported the same thing. Thank goodness I did fill up yesterday, but c'mon ... this is ridiculous! I highly doubt there's a REAL shortage ... at least, not yet. This is only because people were freaking out.

THIS is why we need to amp up our efforts in finding alternative fuel sources!

Other than that, I did "fall cleaning" today ... I'm a neat and clean freak, but it's really surprising some of the stuff you find when you put some elbow grease into certain areas ... I got a good workout of the deal, though, and my apartment is squeaky clean! I'm very pleased.

I'm also slightly worried, because (sorry if this is TMI) my right armpit is swollen and hurts something awful. Considering my 'episodes' (for lack of a better term) over the past month or so, it is just a little worrying. I took some ibuprofen and put some ice on it (awkward), and while it's still swollen, it doesn't hurt as badly. So I guess we'll see ... I really, really, really don't want to go back to the doctor's this week.

Speaking of the upcoming week, work is probably going to be hell on earth! I have two big presentations, as well as some projects that aren't major, but absolutely have to get done. I actually really miss being in the news industry. I mean, I like my job and my co-workers, but I guess ... I guess I just feel a little out of place. Well, it's not like I have to work here for the next 40-50 years! If it's still not working out for me in a few years time, I'll just see what other opportunities come up! (Or if I don't marry Prince Harry in the meantime ... hmmm.)

Now, all I'm doing is enjoying my clean apartment and getting ready to give myself a pedicure.

Everyone have a good evening!

    Yeah- Baseball boy and I DIDNT fill up on gas- now I'm scared. Gonna try and make our tanks last a few days till this 'crisis' is over.

    CT has plenty of gas. I filled up today for $3.68, which is "reasonable" for my part of the state.

    Good job on the cleaning, I wish I could say that I'm a neat freak, but no! It's weird... because I'm a perfectionist when it comes to nearly everything else.

    And a pedicure? Sounds like a GREAT idea! Smile

    I was in Raleigh, North Carolina for Hurricane Fran in 1995. Gas and gas prices did the same thing - went up at least 10% if you could find it. It lasted for about a week, and then it went down to its freakishly low self. SE US - Atlanta especially - usually has the lowest prices. Tough to ship the gas in if the interstates are flooded and otherwise tied up.

    Gas went up $.10/gallon from yesterday AM until evening. After my long commute to work yesterday, I filled up when I got home. I had a full tank in the morning, or else I would have definitely got some in the AM!

    That is nothing!

    I paid $3.72 Friday about 10 AM ..... last night at 6 PM, gas was $4.29! @@
