***Great video at the end***

That is right, everyone is talking about the gas these days. And if you live in the Nashville area you know it isn’t just the price of gas but the so called “shortage.” There really wasn’t a shortage in the area but everyone started think they needed to fill up (top off) their gas tanks just in case there was a shortage. This thought caused people to people to become greedy and eventually caused a shortage. Not only did they fill up their car tanks but they would fill up portable tanks as well. By noon last Friday, it was an all out war to find gas in Nashville and surrounding areas.

Exxon down the street from where I work got more gas at 12:30. Once management got word of this they started making their team members leave to go get gas. They didn’t want any out of gas excuses come yesterday morning. It was crazy. Gas was the buzz at work and my twitter was going crazy as well. Everyone was keeping everyone else updated on which stations had gas and which ones where out. Lines at the stations where horrible, thankfully I had 3/4 of a tank so I didn’t have to worry about getting gas.

To let you know how fast gas was going, I call the Exxon down the street from work Saturday morning at 8:30 to see if they had gas for a friend in need. They were already out. That is right, the gas station that received gas at 12:30 Friday afternoon was out of gas Saturday at 8:30 a.m.

You know there is a problem when your pastor rants in a post about the gas.  I have a half of a tank at the moment, so it looks like I will be making a stop tomorrow to fill up just so I don’t have to wait in a long line this weekend when everyone that filled up last weekend begins to run dry.

So I tried  to post the video on here but haven’t figured out how to do that yet.  So check this video out and fill Nashvillains pain.  I laughed throughout the whole thing.


Can you? Today is International Talk like a Pirate Day and to get the day started off right I thought I would let you know what my Pirate name is. (Yes, I actually found out my real name.  It had to do with work so don’t ask).

My pirate name is:

Mad Mary Roberts



Every pirate is a little bit crazy. You, though, are more than just a little bit. Two things complete your pirate persona: style and swagger. Maybe a little too much swagger sometimes — but who really cares? Arr!

Get your own pirate name from
part of the network

Now that I’ve shared with you my name it is your turn. Go here and take the quize then come back to my page and tell me your pirate name and what it says about you.


The new session of The Biggest Losser started tonight and I have decided to kick some butt while it is on.  I’m Challenging my self to at least lose 30lb this session.  One thing is missing though…I don’t have a Bob or Jillian.  Here is my challenge, who is going to step up to the plate and be my Bob and Julian?  I need some that will push me when I don’t want to be pushed any more. Someone that will make me mad but at the end I will still love.  Someone that when I wake up in the morning I’m sore. 

So, which one of my  readers will take the challenge?

Found a blog today that posted about search words people have used to find their blog.  So I thought since I haven’t posted in awhile and I have been a little busy to write I thought I would post the search words people have used to find my page.
