    I saved up $0.25 cents today and got a gumball from the machine at Toys R Us!

    Actually I got 2! The machine must have jammed for the previous "player" and I got 2 gumballs for the price of one!

    I picked the raspberry apple flavor. It comes out PURPLE. That's pretty. But it's a really big piece and I had to spit it out even before I could tell if it would lose its flavor because my jaw ached from chewing it.

    I saved the other piece so I might have it later or roll it on my desk and knock over Star Wars figures.

    In any event, yes indeed: saving $0.25 did indeed make a difference in my life today!

    Roll them gas prices down! We'll all have gumballs again!

    I filled up today. The Shells here (and perhaps nation wide?) have $.05 cents off per gallon on Thursdays. Well, yesterday the price was $3.99, like it has been for a while, and today it was $3.97. For those of you who are not good at math (), that is only 2 cents off. A little disappointing, sure, but still cheaper than the Exxon right across the street ($3.99, usually their prices are identical [w/ exception to Thursdays of course]).

    So I saved about $.32 cents!!! Suck on that gumball Tycho!!!

    Drove past an Albertson's (grocery store chain) gas station yesterday, saw high grade for $4.399, mid grade for $4.299, so I guessed the pattern would have 87 octane for $4.199 (a decent price around here), but it was... $3.999! Needless to say, I put some in my tank.

    p.s. Speaking of weird things related to cars, the other day, parked in another grocery store lot was a car just like mine (same model, color, and even dealership license plate holder). No big whoop, except that the first 6 characters on the license plate were exactly the same and the last digit being off by 3. Thought someone was cruising around in my ride without my permission.

    Did you stick around to see the driver? Maybe they looked just like you, except were shorter. :that'ssome spookycoincidence:

    I could've made it sound like a joke if I said I had just rented Attack of the Clones, Duplicity, Back to the Future II, and Groundhog Day from the video store.

    Tracked down $4.09 gas today. Still way too high, but better than what we were paying a month ago I guess.

    and that $3.999 station? Back up to $4.159 yesterday. Wonder why the drop/raise.

    Your state didn't have one of those tax holidays did it?

    Not likely. The Governator is too busy pitching our state employees out on the street and doing other cost-saving measures like cutting other's salaries to alleviate our state budget crisis..

    Taxing us MORE will come next.
