Up and at ’em

I think it is precisely this time (Tuesday at around 8:00) where I start to get tired of the week and become ready for Friday to come around. I’m back in Austin, doing the Austin thing, and while I never thought I’d get used to the idea of not being a student… I think I’m starting to get used to it, and actually like it. No kidding.

On a random note, I always wondered how gas station clerks kept the gas price signs up to date. I guess the digital/computerized signs are a bit easier to manage because you don’t have to physically go and change the numbers around, but even with the digital signs, you have to keep up to the minute with the changing prices… kind of like a stock market day trader would with stocks. This continuous updating of gas prices, as one would imagine, would be imperative to do if there were multiple gas stations on an intersection and competition was intense. One gas station back home near my parents place has come up with an amusing way to keep up with the latest happenings…

Well, at least I think it is amusing. I chuckle every time I drive by that sign.

As I mentioned in an earlier post, I made some valentines for my students. Here’s the basket with the goodies!
