Things you can get for approximately US $134:
* On Wednesdays, you can buy 536 hot dogs for $.25/each at Weinerschnitzel’s.
* 41 gallons of petrol (at $3.219/gallon, the current rate at the gas station at the corner).
* 8 GB iPod nano on Amazon.com. Actually, that one’s a nickel shy of $134…
* 1,696 ounces of baking soda (at $2.49 per 32 oz. box).
* 11 bags of cat food (nearly a year’s worth of feline happiness).
* A couple tickets to see Bill Cosby in September.
* 33 fish tank filters (that’s nearly 4 years of filters, folks).
* Approximately 10 pounds of filet mignon at Costco.
* A traffic ticket for a less than 10 second ride in the bicycle lane if you cut over before the dotted line to make a right-hand turn.
I’ll let you guess which one I chose.

Yeah. Been there. Done that (something similar).
Never did it again though.
Love you, too.
SUCK. Sorry, honeybunny….
Gas is $3.21 by you? I need to look at my corner station…
Why couldn’t it have been Rarry?? 🙂
Funny thing, the few people I told about it yesterday thought I’d gotten a speeding ticket and were aghast when I told them it was for the bicycle lane. Hehe
Yep, $3.21… Costco is cheaper, but this one is more convenient.
THAT is an expensive “criossing of the line”….! Oh My!
Some of those things are surprising, I must say….Two Tickets to see Bill Cosby—not bad when you think of the price of Theatre Tickets today….lol!
I wasn’t too thrilled about the ticket, but I’m shaking my head and laughing over it because I never, ever do that and the one time I do, I get busted. I swear! No, I really did swear! 😆
So I guess I should have said “which two I picked” because I totally bought tickets to see Bill Cosby, too. HA!!
just came by and got “caught up” on YOU!
i hope that you are having a relaxing sunday … and that the stresses lesson … i know how that feels, battling bouts of stress/depression – even tho’ i know that “this too shall pass”, when you are in it, you don’t feel that way …
but since you are “amused” when writing this post – i hope the rest of the week will only be better and better …
Thanks, dear, I’m hoping that we’re coming out of this tunnel of gloom. It’s been a rough time… while not pleased or thrilled about the ticket, the thing is I never break that law, but the one time I did, I totally got busted on it. Sometimes you just gotta laugh at the irony of it, you know?
That’s what happens when you have a red sports car. Cop magnet.
Im surprised you didn’t get out of it by batting your eyelashes at the officer. Most would let a pretty lady slide. Unless you got a woman cop.
I’ve driven a red Miata since 1996. This is my 1st ticket in it. I drove a white Honda civic for only 2-3 years and got two or three tickets in that one. *shrug* Go figure.
Actual conversation, that may shed light on your last question there, held by me and Tony the night I got the ticket: Tony-Did you try tears? Me-Wouldn’t have worked. Him-He was a jerk? Me-Not really. Him-So he was gay. Me-How’d u know?
What in the world is a bicycle lane? Over here, bicyclists know there’s no such thing as sharing. Cars and trucks rule the road!
Hope the rest of your weekend is good!
Now see, I should’ve asked him, “What in the world is a bicycle lane?” Maybe THAT would’ve gotten me free from the ticket… 😆
You got a ticket because you went over into the bicycle lane 10 seconds too soon???? Someday was having a boring day. Sorry honey, that blows!
Not even 10 seconds. *eye roll*
Now everywhere we go, I tell Tony, “If that motorcycle cop had been behind you, you’d have gotten a ticket just now for that!” He says, “Is this what I’m gonna hear now everywhere we go?” Me, “Yep!”
Yeah… I would’ve guessed that it was a speeding ticket… I was all mortified when I was telling Steve… “Can you believe that Jeanette got a TICKET for coasting in the bike line for just a few seconds?!”
I counted no less than six cars tonight doing what I did last Thursday. Talk about sucky luck. Blech. I hope that cop gets a case of chiggers in his groin.
I had no idea you were so fond of hotdogs.
There’s a lot of things I’m fond of that you don’t know about.
