Gas Is Out Of Control

Wow, this picture was taken almost a year ago (September 6, 2005 to be exact).
Gas prices have come down around 30¢ a gallon. Not much. Then again, when I was living in New Jersey back in 2001, it was below $1.00 a gallon. Those were the days, my friend.

Funny -- the closest thing I can think of as big as this would probably be on September 11th while I was watching the first tower collapse, I distinctly remember thinking, "Wow, Mason's gonna grow up in a world with just one tower."
Just as earth-shattering? On some level, yes.

A nice family from up the road took our cat, Blackberry last night. My wife was tired of being scratched by Twinkie, and so was hoping that they'd take an interest in him. However, upon listening to her story, this lady thought that perhaps my wife was giving away the wrong cat.
The trouble is, our cats have been a part of our lives for a long time now. As much as we have to get rid of them (for my wife's chronic lung problems due to 9/11), it's like losing a child or a parent. You just can't imagine life without them.
I hope wherever Blackberry is at is safe, loving, and full of fun things for him to chase.
Mister Beebles, I miss you already.
update: After calling the new family and explaining the heartache and regret since letting Blackberry go, they thoughtfully returned him to us.

Yay! -- iChat with tabs and greenscreening. A cleaner interface and a chance to bring forth my inner Colin Mochrie. I should also mention it'd now let me tap into my Dad's desktop to do the remote control tech support thing.
Nay! -- iCal 3? Group calendars? Whatever.
Yay! -- Dashcode lets me be a wanna be hax0r and make my own widgets. Cool!
Nay! -- HTML mail, so 1997.
Yay! -- To-dos in Mail!
Nay! -- I was able to do this in Entourage back in the Classic days.
