First and foremost, my fiancee had two of her wisdom teeth taken out today. She’s in some amount of pain, is really hungry, and has had a little bit of trouble staying asleep. She also informed me, ” I wish I could drink 4,000 gallons of water” to which I replied “that probably would hurt a little”. She then said, “I could stick my face under a waterfall with my mouth open….. water is so bad it hurts my teeth”. Needless to say, I thought that the Codene influenced comments were quite funny.
Gas is apparently going to continue to plummet. Oil prices briefly dipped below 60 dollars a barrel today, down from a high of 78 dollars a month and a half ago. The fed is predicting another short term drop of 25 cents per gallon of gas. Some long term projections have oil falling to 15 dollars a barrel with gas around 1.15 a gallon. That would my my drives to Nashville much cheaper.
Greg Kendall-Ball, the only person that I know from South Africa, is thinking of pulling the plug on kendallball.net . Head over and read a little and let him know you want it to stay. He’s been a great voice of reason from graduates of Harding University.
And another update: there was a huge explosion behind my house. It was big enough that it knocked some stuff off of the trees and onto the roof. I walked back there and it seemed like it came from a shed behind the houses that are behind me. There was smoke, and a distinct odor, but I didn’t see any people, and decided it would be best just to stay away from there. Maybe a meth lab explosion. I don’t know.
