Mocking The Clickbait 13: You Don't Know My Imagination.

Unconventional Baby Names You Haven't Thought Of Yet.

Au contraire, I did so think of calling a baby Vongpigulon or Likestoeatdogfood.

I have to admit I actually did click on this link.  It uses the typical clickbait slide show format, and the first 3 names are Ash, Atlas, and August. I didn't bother with the rest.  I'm pretty sure I've heard of more than one person named Ash, would be entirely unsurprised to hear someone is called Atlas, and August made me think of the late Mohawk actor August Schellenberg.

Gas In Saskatoon, August 24, 2018.

For the first time in a while we had more than a tiny drop in gas prices.  Unfortunately it was followed by a big jump.  At the start of the week gas was 117 cents a litre at most locations.  But it soon jumped to 124.9 cents a litre.  Just what we didn't need.

For days the skies over Saskatoon have been grey or brownish grey as the result of forest fire smoke drifting in from British Columbia.  In fact the smoke has reached as far east as parts of Ontario, leading to air quality warnings across much of the western half of Canada.  So it was nice to get up this morning to a blue sky.  How long this lasts remains to be seen.

Another trickle down this week.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 122.1 cents a litre at most stations.  Hopefully we'll see a more substantial price drop soon.

Gas In Saskatoon, August 10, 2018.

The trickling down continues.  Gas in Saskatoon is currently 122.7 cents a litre at most locations, but it may fall to 122.4 before the weekend is over.

An Ironic Death.

Getting hit by a hearse while jay walking. 

This came to mind when I was crossing a local street with a hearse heading my way.  I was nowhere close to being hit, but I sure wouldn't want to go that way.

Gas In Saskatoon, August 3, 2018.

It's a long weekend in Saskatchewan, so a lot of people would have expected the price of gas to go up.  Instead it has trickled down.  Gas in Saskatoon is now 123.4 cents a litre at most stations.

Wasted Again.

No, I'm not wasted.  I don't get wasted.  Rather I found a McCain fruit punch juice box sitting on the ground today.  When I picked it up I realised it was just about entirely full.  As always when I run into stuff like this I can't imagine wasting something I paid good money for.  And once again I'll ask people to stop dumping crap on the ground.

Not that it works.
