Ouch!

Yesterday I filled up my tank at $3.67 a gallon. Today when I went out, it was up to $3.89. That is beyond ridiculous. I guess we're determined to reach that $4 mark in all parts of the country, eh? (Yes, I know some of you are already there, and I feel for you.)

I hope to make that tank of gas last for as long as humanly possible. Working mostly from home is helping this, but I've become much more aware of my travel patterns and try to only go where I need to, not where I want to, and that really, really sucks, because I love driving and going places. Bah. I was just remembering the good old days, when gas was less than a dollar a gallon. Ahh, nostalgia.

So, how much are you being gouged at the pump?

In other (happier) news, my mother had given me a rice cooker for a housewarming present when I moved. I'd never gotten around to trying it out until tonight. I made a lovely curried rice dish with slivered almonds and veggies for dinner. Mmmmmmmmmm! I'm contemplating some homemade rice pudding now. Such a domesticated little thing, she is. And hey, at least rice is still (relatively) cheap, although I hear that's likely to change. I've stocked up, for future use, just in case.

In not so happy news, I fear the onset of a migraine. I just realized, since I've moved the frequency and severity of my migraines have decreased significantly. My sleepwalking has also not been nearly as bad (which is good, as my bedroom is just steps away from the staircase.) But I do feel that nasty creeping headachiness that is moving to the left side of my head, so I'll be sedating myself shortly in hopes of nipping it in the bud (as Barney Fife would say.) After I make some rice pudding, that is.
