Today on the radio:
Female Broadcaster: "Wow, it's terrible how expensive natural gas is and how everyone is getting their bills and they're just so high!"
Male Broadcaster: "I KNOW! I just got mine yesterday and I couldn't believe it."
FB: "How bad was it? Ten percent higher? Twenty??"
MB: "It was SO much worse!! It was DOUBLE what it was last year at this time!"
FB: "Wow!! Fifty percent?!?! That's CRAZY!"
I'm no math genius, but....
In other news, tonight is the annual Spatula family holiday party which I haven't been able to attend since my parents have been in this house because I've always been in the middle of finals. I spent the day doing housework, stringing lights, and frosting cookies (as well as dealing with The Terrible Catastrophic Deviled Egg Incident of '05 -- but we'll get to that later), so I'm totally exhausted and the nearly 30 guests don't even get here for an hour. Geez. Hopefully it will be fun...at least I know I'll be eating well.
That's it for now. Hopefully I'll survive a bunch of neighborhood women all dressed up in hideous Christmas sweaters asking me when I'm going to get married and give my mom a grandkid. Sigh.
