So as I’m getting ready in my bathroom this morning, I start looking around and really start to feel like I need a change. I think a new coat of paint along with a new bathroom vanity will do the trick. I don’t have a ton of money to spend on an upgrade so I can’t go for a full remodel as much as I’d like to, but, a new vanity I think would really open things up. Now it’s just about deciding which one I want. There are so many choices! I guess maybe I should figure out the color paint I want first so I can match everything up.
So I’m thinking of splurging on a new classic vox amplifier for my music room. Why you ask? Well, somebody (not me, lol) decided to put their foot into mine the other day. Thankfully they gave me enough money to buy a replacement but I think I’m going to upgrade and get a high quality one now that I can.
According to a report, Domino’s is testing out a new product that makes your DVD’s smell like pizza. So how does it work? Well, it’s pretty simple actually. They’ve parterned with a movie company so when a person rents one of three select movies, they get the “special” DVD.
When they open the DVD to put it in their DVD player, it’s nothing more than a blank disc. However, that’s where it becomes neat. See, the disc is printed with “thermal ink” which is nothing more than ink that displays when it gets warm. So, when you put your DVD in your DVD player, it naturally heats up from all of the spinning which makes the ink appear, thus, when you take the disc out of the player the DVD now looks like a pizza pie, but that’s not the best part. As it heats up, it actually begins to SMELL like pizza. Yes, that’s right – not only does it look like it but it also smells like it. How neat, right?
It’s only being tested out in Brazil right now (yes, you can cry) but I’m curious to see how well it works. Will people actually get so hungry they’ll order pizza?!
Ugh, gas prices are just insane. I went to fill up yesterday and when I walked up to the pump, I read the meter to see what the previous person had paid for gas and they had paid just a few bucks short of $100 dollars – $96 to be specific. Insane, right?
I didn’t of course cost that much to fill up but I certainly didn’t feel like I just got a steal when I pulled away from the pump, either.
Now granted, I do live in a bit of a “tourist” area so my gas prices are always going to be higher than say, some place in the middle of Kansas, but still, gas is expensive everywhere!
Currently, gas is going for $3.58 a gallon which is six cents higher than it was just a week ago. Of course, oil refineries will point to the fact that gas was down before that for a bit, but I’m sure they’ll conveniently leave out that earlier this year it was nearly $4.00 a gallon on AVERAGE for the country, which is just insane. I believe during that time here it was just a few cents short of $5.00 bucks a gallon here. Just crazy.
Hope it goes down again soon, like, ASAP.
So one of my best friends since I was in high school recently moved to the Arizona area, which is something she has wanted to do since we were kids. She went on a vacation there as a youth and just fell in love with it and always told me that she’d eventually move there. Well, she did and she’s loving it except for one MAJOR thing. The pests!
I guess when she took a vacation, she either didn’t notice that Arizona has some pretty nasty creepy crawlers or she was in an area that didn’t have any. Either way, she’s not exactly too thrilled with the things she’s found inside of her garage or surrounding the home. And of course, without internet since she just moved in a few days ago, she’s needing my assistance.
I went online and looked up the number to Termite control phoenix as they’ll most likely not only be able to help her with any pests that she might be having problems with, but they’ll also be able to get her and her new home protected against termites which is VERY important. Those little suckers can destroy a home in just a few years and you wouldn’t even know it. She’s not the type to do something like that, so, I’ll just knock out two birds with one stone for her.
