I said that it was 2.73 when I came home on Monday and yesterday morning still 2.73. On my way home last night 2.79 and still this morning 2.79. I am just waiting to see what it will be on my way home tonight. I passed one that is usually in line with the cheaper Arco's and this one was 2.89, Oh my word. We are going to be seeing 3.00 sooner than I thought. I can't imagine what they are paying over in San Francisco right now. Hey folks, give me your gas prices out there. New York? Ohio? Arizona? Conneticut? Wherever you are from, what are you paying right now.
Oil hits new record near $71 after Katrina
LONDON (Reuters) - Oil thundered to a new high near $71 on Tuesday as oil firms assessed damage wrought by Hurricane Katrina's rampage through the Gulf of Mexico, where most oil and gas output was at a standstill and refineries were shut.
Can someone please tell me what a "happy period" is?. I have been seeing these Always commercials and they close the commercial with "Have a happy period." You are joking, right? I am sorry there is nothing happy about that time of the month. That is one of the most dumbest things I have ever heard, "have a happy period." If you are like me, you have pain, moodiness and will bite the head off of anyone that comes near you. I am sorry that does not sound very happy to me. Just ask my husband, he gets the brunt of the "happy period," and I guarantee he doesn't think it is very happy either. The irritability alone is bad, but add pain and oh, just don't even mess with me. For that matter, don't even look at me and you might be safe in another room. The words "hi babe" are enough to set me on edge. Don't "hi babe" me and make your own dinner, as the "dumbfounded" and then "realization" look takes affect. Poor guy. It definitely takes a lot of self control to keep myself from going over the edge, and believe me, I am not always successful at it. So remember "Have a happy period," and then get out of my face while you are at it.
Ok, regular readers of this site may remember my previous post on this subject. Well, I heard on the radio this morning that "Punky Brewster"(Soleil Moon Frye) just had her first baby. I think Cami Lloyd put it best by saying something like the Hollywood trend of weird baby names continues, and she did mention a couple,Coco and Apple. With a name like Soleil, can you really expect to see a normal name? Oh yeah, the baby's name is"Poet Sienna(oh, a Toyota mini-van)Rose Goldberg." I think Rose Goldberg is just fine. Here is the article I came across
One of my co-workers just came over to me with an e-mail from a friend of hers that said go to Google and type in the word "failure" in the search bar. She said "I don't see what is funny, it didn't work for me." So I went over there and typed in the word "failure" and lo and behold the first thing in the search to come up was the The White House, "Biography of George W. Bush." The email my co-worker got was to gasp and laugh out-loud at the same time. I told her if that is suppose to be the joke then I am not amused. The second one on the list was Michael Moore, that is more fitting.
I love the ABC series Lost. It is fresh and different from all of the crime dramas on right now. Mind you I love the crime dramas too. Lost is an absorbing and on the edge of your seat thrill an episode, and you can't wait till next weeks episode. A rerun in the middle of the season is torture. Now I read that ABC is being sued for stealing the idea. Story here
According to the Reporter, Spinner says he was hired byI wonder if Lost was not successful if this person would have anything to say about it?

called Lost, about stranded plane crash survivors who encounter "strange
creatures" and "dangerous characters."

I know someone who keeps a close eye on the news, for the actions going on at the borders. Rosecoloredworld has a few comments on this subject today and I don't think she is very happy about it either! She has a new template too!
Is the daily print going the way of the Dodo Bird? Reading this article, one might wonder.
"Every major movie studio is rethinking its reliably humongous display ad
buys in those papers because those newsosaur readers are, to quote one mogul,
“older and elitist” compared to younger, low-brow filmgoers — so it makes no
sense to waste the dough."
Is it worth it? Why would you want to spend time in jail just to protect someone who probably would not return the favor? Is it a matter of honor and integrity. I don't think any job is worth it.

Locally: Again the flights were grounded for the insecticide spraying. That Delta Breeze we so love here in the valley, has halted the air assault on those pesky mosquito's, as more cases are reported in the Sacramento County area for West Nile Virus. There was some ground spraying but was not the coverage they get from the air.
Are you kidding me? A lawsuit? Absurd!
Being in the capital city of CA you will tend to see stars or big name people around. We now have a visit from Linda Blair down at the state capital protesting. Gee, what a concept, protesting. She is concerned about the bill on breed specific dogs(see link above for story). I have a few comments on this. Why do people always take something to the extreme and assume because a bill (mind you, I don't agree with this bill anyway)that has specifics, that it is going to affect everything. I do believe that there should be control on spaying and neutering if you are not a breeder. Cats also should be if you let them roam outside. I don't let my cats go outside and I wish people wouldn't, it contributes to the over-population of strays and cats getting hit by cars. Regarding dogs, I believe that the owner is what makes the dog vicious and not the dog. I have posted on this before. I don't think if they were to pass this bill anyway, that they would be able to stop the attacks of vicious dogs. I don't think it will be a bill that would be easy to enforce. Kind of like that "we don't let sex offenders into our park."prev post

Cindy Sheehan continues to plague the media with her outlandish and over wrought sense of self-degredation. She is a disgrace to the memory of her son and all the troops still fighting for their lives. Watching Fox News Sunday and they played a clip from her commercial airing in Texas. Also I heard earlier that the uncomfirmed report of husband filing for divorce Friday. This woman has become a media hound and the MSM have just lapped her up. Bill Kristol made a good point today, she is hurting the Democratic party. If this is a true statement from him then Cindy stand on! The brief clipping was of course "Mr Bush you lied." I am trying to understand exactly what these idiots think Bush lied about. How in the world do they not see the connection between terror and Iraq. Saddam was a terrorist. A lot of the captured terrorists came out of Iraq. Gee, that sounds like a connection to me. Ok, now onto the WMD's. Well let's see here because we didn't find them does not mean they did not exist. Saddam has had the time and the means to hide them before we went in with the inspectors. What about all of the bio-chemical agents used on his own people. This may not be a bomb with a big boom, but it does cause mass destruction. The war is necessary and will continue to be necessary as long at this threat exists. As long as things keep getting blown up this threat does exist. President Bush does not owe this woman another meeting and for her to treat his meeting as meaningless is appalling. President Bush is a great man and grieves the loss of a soldier. Unlike the media hungry liberal, President Bush does not need to make every visit to a grieving family, the 10 o'clock news.
I decided that all of the stress and bitching I do over here, that I needed to find another type of outlet. I created Mrs. Media Matters Fun Stuff, this is what I call my less stressful page. There will be no politics, no news, or any stressful stuff on that page. I just posted my first post yesterday and then tonight. Weird noises, and if you read that know that while I write this I can still hear it. So if you like me here visit me there.
"WASHINGTON (AP) - The pinch at the pump is starting to feel more like a punch for a growing number of Americans."
I came across a local blog site and found this neat story. You go Andy, we are behind you, if not physically, we are in spirit.
Mrs. Media Matters feels it is necessary to post on some funny stuff today. After yesterday and the tirade going on over at a fellow bloggers comment section(and no I didn't start it this time) I felt I would pull some of my favorite lines from those comments. These lines just had me rolling with laughter. Some classics from some of my favorite bloggers.
I think we all know my answer. I know I am a little late on this subject but I felt I had so much yesterday that I would save it for this morning. I wasn't really watching but listening too Bill O'Reilly's show last night while I was on the computer (I think Mr. Media Matters was watching). I do like O'Reilly sometimes with his in-your-face style. He was talking to a women named Dolores Kesterson, who's son was killed in Iraq. This woman is also an anti-war mom and had understanding for Sheehan(other mom) who was planted down there in front of the Presidents home in Crawford, Texas. She (Kesterson) went on to say that she blames Bush for 100's of thousands of deaths. WHAT??? Blames Bush? She went on to say that she did not believe that the war was justified. O'Reilly chimes in and says a lot of people believe the war is self-defense for the people(Duh!) She does not believe this. I finally tuned her out after I began pacing the living room. These people just irk the crap out of me. I am sorry your son was lost but he died a hero for a war that is justifiable. Why can't these people see that. I don't understand the ignorance of these people. They feel that if we just sit by and do nothing that is will all go away. I have said this before and I will say it again "Get out of the way and shut up"
Kitty over at Kitty Litter has got some questions on dating today. I am no expert but I am not too far away from remembering the dating scene. I have blogged on this subject before, and I feel that some of the old rules apply and can be very effective in working them in with modern technology. One thing I did before the internet came along was do ads in the local paper. I did do the bar hopping scene but realized early on that it was not going to cut it. Yes, the night clubs were great for having fun, dancing, and just plain partying, but this old rule applies: I don't think your are going to find a quality person in a bar. If there is anyone out there that has, good for you.
I don't know if this is helpful, but you can always leave me a comment and ask me a question. Mr. Media Matters and I met on 7/23/03 through Yahoo Personals: Married on 03/28/04 and we are very happily married. Don't ever believe that you are going to find someone perfect because there is no such thing as a perfect person.
Do we really ever believe those tabloids? I know I have talked(ok, ranted) about this before, so I won't get into it. I was just over at the Fox News page and noticed a really nice(at least I think) article on Lindsay Lohan. I have always liked her. I always thought she was so cute. The first time I saw her acting was in the remake of "The Parent Trap," such a cute movie.

I have always believed that the country was not ready for a woman President. I do not see this even in the near future. I hear lately so much on the assumption that Hillary Clinton is running for President. If there was any woman that was definitely not qualified for the job, she would be it. I have always thought that I was a pretty intelligent person. I could be wrong in that assumption. If I were to use Miss Rodham's commencement speech from her graduation in 1969 from Wellesley Woman's college, then I could probably doubt my intelligence. I had a really hard time trying to figure out what this woman was talking about. I have never seen someone say so many words without saying a damn thing. We always knew that she was one power-hungry woman. I have to say I did not consider it an honor to be able to read this over-bloated and rhetorical nonsense.

Today's news interest:
The never-ending showdown between the tabloids and the stars. I always thought tabloids were put in register lines to entertain us while we are checking out at the grocery store. What? They aren't? Do people actually believe that garbage on the covers. "Alien BigFoot Babies from Neptune" "Well that is what the guy in the bar told me he saw." It has to be real, right? How many times can one person be on the cover? My word. Perusing the KCRA channel 3 website(I never seem to watch the news anymore) I came across this. Oh brother!

Stopping by some of my favorite blogs, I came across and few things I agree with.
Well we all know the break up of the wonder couple Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston. All the hype that it was Angelina Jolie that did it. Of course we know what the tabloids, TV, and magazines tell us. If you were to look at from that point of view you have to believe that Brad Pitt was just a sleaze. We don't know the whole story do we? I was reading an article today from Channel 3 on Jennifer Aniston's article in Vanity Fair:
Yay! My radio station won. Flash 92.1, woo hoo.
I was listening to Paul and Phil (local morning DJ's Y92) and they were talking about the new Wonder Woman movie, due out next year, and who they might cast for the lead. They were talking about hearing Sandra Bullock or Catherine Zeta-Jones, or even Scarlett Johannsen(sp?). I believe I heard that Lynda Carter(yes, the original one) said that the first two picks were to old for the role, then these two were trying to figure out how old she(Lynda Carter) was when she played the role. Well my opinion(yes, I know I am full of them) is that Sandra Bullock is not voluptuous enough for the role. Yes, you read me right voluptuous. Lynda Carter had the build and I don't think Sandra Bullock does. Scarlett is too blonde and I don't think a wig would cut it. I also agree she is too old for the role. I was reading the movie buzz here, it was saying Jessica Biel or some Canadian unknown or even Katie Holmes. Catherine Zeta-Jones may have the build for it but she is too old. I don't think I like any of the choices I have heard so far. We will have to wait to see. I remember the series and I loved watching it when I was a little girl.
