09:05 pm: Late Sleep

I forgot to say yesterday that on the way home from Carrabbas, I stopped to use my Giant gas numbers at a Shell. I had 477 which meant 40 cents off each gallon -- $2.15.9 -- which is pretty good. I knew I had to use it soon because each point only lasts for 30 days and I was getting close to the time I got a lot of points. Indeed, when I went to the grocery today, I was down to 32 points. I got 50 more points (30 for cat stuff and 20 for my stuff) but I doubt I'll ever be up to 400 again.

It's going to be in the 90s from Sunday through Thursday (three of four weathercasters) which is why I went grocery shopping today instead of Monday.

I was online a long time last night because I'd last read ML at about 11am Thursday and here I was reading it at 11pm Friday. It took me a long time to catch up. When I got off, I read the paper, and kept thinking about all the little extra things of history that I didn't tell the doctor -- doctors who didn't know what they were doing, nurses who hit me, times I was more accurate than any medical person, etc. -- so I didn't finish the paper until 5am. I started reading in bed and I was still thinking about those things so I didn't get much read. When I got really sleepy, I turned the light out at 6:30am.

I woke up about 2:30pm (Junie tried a couple times earlier) and then got up to see that none of them had finished their dry food from last night. They don't seem to want me to give them more, either. However, this is a smaller size than the type I usually get (usually Indoor, but PetSmart was out and I got Mature) and so they're getting more to eat in the same measure, and maybe they're just not hungry.

There's instructions on the little screen and you can either put your Giant card in or enter the card ID on the buttons. It's clearly checking with Giant, because there's the connection time when it looks up how much you get. It tells you how much and then has you push the button (I always get Regular) and then you put the nozzle in and start fueling.

When I stopped fueling, I knocked the gas cap out of the little place for it on the inside of the doorlid. Fortunately, I have a reacher in the van and was able to get the gas cap with that. The cap was too close to the left rear tire to pull up and get it, I might have run into it.

Wow, your gas is a LOT less expensive than our and I bet there's not much difference between what comes out of the pump. Yes, CA has all kinds of strange rules about clean gas, but, still ............
I noticed that in CO, too: gas was at least 50 c less than here.

The normal price was $2.55.9, but I got the $2.15.9 because of what I've bought at the grocery and the delivery service they own. For every dollar you spend (and they round down), you get a point. They last for 30 days and I had 477 when I got the gas and the next day, I had 32. So it was good that I stopped that day! If I got more gas, it would be worth more, but I only use about a half-tank a month.
