    You know, I could use a MANipulation. I filled my car up today too--never thought I'd see the day where filling up my little car would cost around $50!


    I was envisioning shoes or milk expression devices. :)


    Remember when a $50 tank would have given you a heart attack, rather than triumphant blog fodder?


    I fill up every Tuesday in Waltham for much less than here at home- the downside? They'll only let you pump $50 worth per visit. My tank holds is a bit more than that. I don't know about you , but gas is up by a lot this week!

    Off to Margene's.


    The price of gas is just sickening! Hooray for Margene today. :-)


    Thank you Norma!!! Your the best pal around.


    $50. You had to remind me. We're on fumes because I don't want to see that. It's times like this I'm glad we live on post and Dan works two miles away. If it weren't down the side of a mountain I'd make him walk. lol.


    The only thing that would be more perfect is if the total was $30.


    Ouch! At this rate, it will soon be cheaper to have the brakes fixed than to fill the tank.

    Hate to say this, but in this area if you are paying by credit card, most of the pumps automatically shut off at $50 with gas prices this high. Still hoping its a perfect pump for you.


    It's Taz's birthday as well as Margene's, an excellent Friday indeed. Gas prices, phooey. (The only bright side, I tell myself, is that now maybe fewer idiots will buy Hummers.)


    Gads, after that pump photo, I need a manipulation myself!

    Can't wait for the F-post, woman. ;)


    I filled my vehicle up yesterday... it wasn't the perfect pump... it was a bit over $50 and made me sick to my stomach... just a little. I'm glad I don't drive 'that' much. That's what a like to see, a 'teaser' for Sunday!

    Marcia Cooke

    Ho, ho, ho....can't wait for YOUR F! I'm still trying to figure that one out.


    An all day deposition sounds exhausting. Sending strengthening and relaxing vibes.

    In Oregon, you may not pump your own gas. I don't even know how.


    Cripes woman, just looking at that $50 made me feel faint.

    Hmmm, will there be any George Carlin on Sunday? ;) I'm giggling already.


    I would cry if I had to pay that much at the pump. That will make great blog fodder, no? *L*

    I hope your day is going well. I'm tired just thinking about it.

    Happy Margene Day!

    "In Oregon, you may not pump your own gas. I don't even know how."

    It's a matter of providing jobs, actually. Sure, they're crappy jobs, out in all weathers and at all times, bored to tears, perpetually high on gas fumes, but at a certain point, a job's a job. So every gas station has at least one person on during all their business hours to pump your gas. I think it's kinda like what was called "mini service" when I was a kid in CA - they pump the gas, but they don't wash your window or anything. I was pretty surprised about it when I moved here, but I actually like it now, and think it's a pretty good idea.

    Seeing the cost of gas makes me feel queasy and ill (like queasy isn't its own ill). It isn't quite that bad where I am yet, but give it another week or two and it will be.

    It's sad, because I look at it and think about the number of sweaters I could make with it as long as I was a bit thrifty.


    I just feel the need to comment on the manipulation/adjustment thing. I work for a chiropractor, and we use the term "adjustment" in our office all the time. He tends to use the term "manipulation" to refer to the procedure used to achieve an "adjustment." The only thing I have found that drives my doctor crazy is when people come in and say they are going to have their "back cracked." Just my 2 cents, and I will go back to lurking now. :)
