One time I told this tree hugger girl that I hated gas and sold my car because I didn't want to use any gas. She thought I was so cool that she slept with me.

I got rid of the Del Sol cause Ben thought it was ugly. Soon Del Sol's will be dirt cheap because of that. I sold at the right time.

Another for random times.

Two things of ramen for dinner, 15 cents each.

Gallon of iced tea a day prolly costs 50 cents to brew.

So I don't spend much on things I'm just going to eat.
At the produce stores and ethnic food stores they carry excellent Green Crest High Mountain Tea from Ceylon for about $3.99 for 500 gr (1.1 lbs). All it takes is one teaspoon full, 3 cloves, and a little dried orange peel to make 1/2 gal of iced tea. Just put the dry stuff in a pot and pour 5 or 10 cups of boiling water on it, stir and wait 1/2 hr. After its cool, pour it thru a fine strainer into your iced tea jug, add water and ice, maybe sugar if you like, and you're good to go. I've been working on the same bag of tea and same bag of cloves a pot or two a day for about 2 years now, so I'm guessing it can't cost more than a few pennies a pot. Probably tastes better than the store bought and not really much more difficult to make, either.

50 cents saved is 50 cents earned...

Neat advice on the tea, right now I'm wondering what kinda tea I can procure that will be fairly traded, hopefully I can find something such, but I'd love to go the route of brewing such as that, which would accomodate the fairly traded fetish.

I get questions all the time about the ScanGauge. I explain it to them. Let them play with it. Then there eyes glass over and there off to something else. They want to know if my car has bluetooth. LMAO A gismo that can help them is a celler dweller compared to bluetooth. But they do like the spot where i put the cell phone.

you should tell them it's a lie detector. It would be fun to watch people that you ride with and see them squarm while you talk to them.
