I got home very late last night and have a ton of stuff piled up on my desk both at home and at work. And while I was spending most of last week immersed in theatre and playwriting, there were the usual fun and games going on in the somewhat-real world. It’s going to take me a little time to catch up with some of the silliness, so bear with me.
First, I noticed that gas prices have gone way up in Miami since I left. The last time I topped off the tank in the Pontiac a couple of weeks ago, I paid around $3.39. This morning it was $3.67 at the same place. Yesterday in Independence, Kansas, it was $3.55, and $3.39 in oil-rich Bartlesville, Oklahoma as I was driving back to Tulsa. Luckily I bought the “full-tank” option with the rental car, which meant that I paid $3.20 a gallon in advance and did not have to re-fill the tank when I brought it back.
Anyway, I had a great time, but it’s nice to be back.
