A Gallon of Gas is still Cheaper than a Gallon of Airline Water

Airline travel has been degenerating steeply since 9/11. It's not getting any better.

At least they still think that drinking from the bathroom tap is "just not classy."

I mean, they have *some* standards!

I'm not looking forward to my next plane trip, on any airline.


Went over to Steph and the Old Man's today to help them put together the last of their shelves down in the basement. Learned how to properly use a power drill. They've been remodeling their bathroom all week, and using my shower while theirs is out of commission. Their bathroom looks like a real Oakwood bathroom now! Not a pink-tiled monstrosity from the 1940s! It's a miracle. Like Steph said, it looks like something out of a Pottery Barn catalogue.

It's been fun to help them out with the occasional thing around the house, whether it's building shelves or moving furniture or painting doors. It's a taste of what it'll look like if I decide to buy my own 1940s fixer-upper (tho I suspect mine would be in the 90-100K range and not the 120-130K range. Yes, I'm talking house prices. This is Ohio. House prices are the only advantage to living here).

I had some other things to say, but they popped right out of my head. Um.

So I guess I'm done.
