Kay, what now?

I just read this article about small cars...read it yet? Alright, good. I can't believe that manufacturers were so surprised by the increase in fuel efficient car sales. The only thing I can think of is that these people make so much money that fuel prices don't bother them. This is one of the problems with bean counters and executives in businesses. They don't understand what real people go through, especially when it comes to finances. They should have seen this coming, the way I did LAST year (I never said anything, but I've been thinking that small cars will be harder to find for a long time). I mean, really? Why would ANYONE these days buy an SUV or truck when it costs over a hundred dollars to fill up, and many people fill up every week? This is an absurd "shock" to the analysts. Pay attention and realize that we poor people will do anything to save some money if we can!

Whoa!

What a day! I'm at lunch and I've already scrambled to put out a fire! I only like to do that once a month, and getting here a half hour early was too close to another fire. (these are metaphorical fires, btw.) A coffee shop that I've written from is actually hiring! I want that job because it's really close to where I live and it's a great place.

I'm not working on my book this week, I have a short story that I'm going to work on and try to submit to a couple of magazines (one at a time, of course, because they don't accept simultaneous submissions). It's gonna be cool!
