2 Things have gone up this past week
#1 = Gas prices. Is anyone really surprised at this? They "myteriously" went down before elections, and then OPEC said they were decreasing production and then we said there was plenty of inventory. Election done. Republicans got their butts handed to them on a silver platter, and now all of a sudden I'm paying 5 cents more per gallon? How long is it going to take for us to get our own butts handed to OPEC before we make a big enough stink?
#2 = Christmas decorations at the shopping centers. This should not be allowed until AFTER Thanksgiving. You want to put out Christmas items to purchase before then, great. You want to put a tacky poinsettia street light decoration up in the middle of November, please refrain. Or just be all redneck and leave them up all year. The 7-11 near my house has a "wreath" made to look like 7-11 but instead it looks like "HI" and it's just sad.
Sigh, it's a Monday. I think my mood is directly affected by the cold, dark rain outside.
