Thursday Quiz - There's No Getting Away From It

What is "it"?
Price increases on everything.
They've just passed the New York State budget, and among other increases they will begin enforcing a bottle deposit for bottled water similar to what we already pay for carbonated drinks.
Guess I won't be buying bottled water anymore.
They're also trying to pass legislation that will increase our natural gas and electricity substantially in the fall.
So now the latest is the increase from Time-Warner for internet usage.
Have you seen that one?
And of course we do a lot of streaming video, because we watch over Netflix a lot.
People are complaining and talking about switching to other providers, but I don't think we'll be able to get away from increasing costs from any ISP, just like this article states.
We're doomed to costs creeping higher and higher.
Suddenly family game night looks like a good idea.
So here's the quiz for Thursday about which remote control button you are, or which one I am.
If I were in charge of the remote controlling our state, I would be pushing the "Stop" button.
Seriously, there's something to be said for making a West New York.

You Are Play

Compared to most people, you are very active and energetic.
You have a daring, challenging spirit. You're willing to go into something blind.
You are playful, carefree, and optimistic. You are up for trying anything.
If you dream it, you usually end up doing it. You're not one for putting your dreams on hold.

Yeah, I don't feel like playing anymore.

UGH! We pay far too much in electric bills because we are paying for the hurricane repairs. Why were there so many hurricane repairs? Because they didn't set up their infrastructure properly in the first place! And it's not even hot yet.

I know exactly how you feel.
