Estimate the cost of a gas for a trip

I can almost TASTE Spring Break… just this week and TADA! The week off should be nice. Prentyce and I are planning to go to Salt Lake City, Utah to visit his cousin Joe and Joe’s fiancé Erika.

Since he was so late in telling of these plans… I could not get any of the airfare specials that Southwest was offering. Bummer!

So, I’m guessing we are gonna drive, unless something better comes along.

AAA Trip Gas Price

I found this neat website that calculates the cost of gas for your trip. You need to input the following:

To and from locations
Make and model of the car that will be used
Year of the car that will be used

Then hit ‘Calculate.’ The data generated that gas will cost me $100 round trip, which doesn’t sound right. It sounds way under than what I expected. My guess is around $150, plus the six and a half hour drive! Ugh.

Summer 2007 Comedies

Rush Hour 3 – Not much to say except that it took them way too long to come out with this movie. This is like Chris Tucker’s first movie in 5 years! Dayummm! Jackie Chan still looks good! It’s setting is in Paris, which I think makes it less funnier. Surprisingly, it looks like there’s still a lot of Asians in Paris. I don’t think it’ll be as funny as the previous titles, but we’ll see.

Balls of Fury
– This movie looks really (stupid) funny. Made by the creators of Reno 911 so expect that type of humor. The main character is not very popular at all, but seems really funny — kind of Jack Blackish.

Surf’s Up
– What can I say besides that it’s another dang penguin movie. This time, it’s about a surfing penguin named Cody Maverick, who’s smaller than his competitors (Happy Feet = weirdo penguin that can’t sing like everyone else? Hmmm..,). I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve had my share of penguin movies in the past year… so I doubt I’m gonna see this.

Evan Almighty
– Man, I think this is gonna be hilarious. Steve Carell (think 40 Year Old Virgin) plays Evan Baxter, aka Weirdo with a Beardo. He’s approached by God (a black one, nothing is wrong with that — thought he was Middle Eastern) to build an arc. Watch the trailer.

Sales Circular
You know how you look through all the ads of the newspaper come Sunday to see if one has that one game for cheaper than another? Well… this is your solution. Go to Sales Circular and they basically do the work for you. Sales Circular>Select your state>Select item you are looking (monitor? DVD? flash memory? blank DVDs? camcorder?). Then, it tells you what product is on sale, for how much, and where…. all their date is compiled from all the weekly circulars. Not for groceries though, mainly electronics.

Guide to Self Storage
I`m such a pack rat that my small one bedroom apartment can’t hold all my stuff… So I have decided to get some storage. The price is not too much, I called a couple of places and they are about $30/month + start up fees. I am getting the smallest kind 5×5 (ft) because I just have a couple of boxes to store, no furniture or anything.

Mattel Toys Sale
It’s a couple days after Christmas so you know there is going to be a lot of sales! I bought about six toys, all under $10 bucks for my nieces and nephews for their upcoming birthdays. This will save me money in the long run! Go look! Cheap stuff. Free shipping for orders over $25 and NO TAX! I love me some Amazon.

Software for Starving Students
A big pack of freeware especially for students. Lots of useful programs, but it’s a lot to download if you don’t have cable modem (675 MB). It includes programs such as 7-zip, Audacity, Firefox, etc. You can get these programs separately, but this is an all in one =). Go to the site and download either for Mac or PC.
