being a grown-up

In this morning's links roundup:

Gasoline prices | Salon Technology: A great overview of why gas has become so expensive, in this morning.

Is It Better to Buy or Rent? - A calculator to see, well, if it's better to buy or rent a house.

After reading those, I kept thinking, 'This is not how I pictured being a grown-up.' I wonder how long it will be before we're back to only being able to buy gas on certain days of the week?

Today at Saltmine U. so far: a false fire alarm, and construction workers sawing through metal air ducts yards away from my head. Nice and quiet for concentrating!


Tomorrow is Book Expo, where I'll be meeting Authors. It'll be like Comic Con, where I try to pitch my mad l33t illustration skillz, but only to book publishers instead of comic and game publishers. So, no stress or anything.
