My day ended yesterday listening to former President Jimmy Carter talk absolute drivel to Charlie Rose (who was getting a little irritated himself, I might add) on theoretical nonsense about how the next president could change the world perception of the US by a 10 minute inauguration speech. Today my day started by listening to George Bush talk absolute drivel for ten minutes on how good people were finding it tough to make ends meet. Yes. George. Thanks for overstating the obvious. Two polar opposites as presidents and enough drivel to fertilize my lawn for a decade.
Then I went to Trader Joe’s, where I used to buy $50 – $60 and fill my house with food for a week. Today I spent over $100 to feed our family of three (and a dog) and I’ll be lucky to make it to Friday. And then, I filled my car with gas…or let’s just say I put in $40 to fill my tank less than 1/2 way. I came home and started going through my bills, deciding in what order I should drain my bank account. Now I’m going to sleep. Got some food in the house, some gas in the car, less money in the bank and I’m pretty sure we’re in a recession.
I’m not listening to Charlie Rose tonight, as I need to wait for my drivel bucket levels to go down. At least I’ll save $0.25 on the electricity.
