Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, April 22, 2009....

Any readers following me on a regular basis know if it's Wednesday, it's time to Rant and Rave about the past week. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past week:

Rave: Went to Crumbs. Got my cupcake and as my sister would say it was tasty.

Rant: I was longing for the white cupcake with coconut, but had to settle for classic vanilla with sprinkles. Although I was disappointed, I really have to say the sprinkle is a great culinary creation.

Rave: My new water bottle. Sure, call me crazy for being excited about this, but I love it. I have two other water bottles and just like Goldilocks; one bottle had too wide a mouth and the other had a straw that was not good when you needed water fast. My new Thermos intak water bottle rocks! (best water bottle EVER)

Rant: This was actually annoying, but made me laugh because I just couldn't believe it. My gf calls Monday night, but since my hubby was away fishing for 4 days (I wanted to spend time alone with him) I ignored the call. Tuesday, mid-day, she calls again and I couldn't answer. Later I check for messages and nothing. Last night, when getting ready for a committee meeting, she calls. I figure it must be important and take the call. The reason she was trying to reach me for 2 days was to bitch about her boss and how she is not listened to or respected. Although I'm having my own employment issues, I can empathize with people having horrible work days. I understood. Well, I did until she threw in the comment at the end of "well, I shouldn't complain, it's better than being unemployed like you." Trying to ignore this comment, I said, "sometimes being in a place where you're so unhappy it makes you sick is not always better than being unemployed." Her response "oh no, it's not that bad. I still wouldn't want to be in your shoes and be unemployed." I think a lot of her comment wasn't the comment itself, but her delivery. She came off a bit smug and not sure why.

I promptly ended the call. I wonder if Miss Manners has a solution for people like this.

Rave: I broke down and got reading glasses. I can finally read while riding on my exercise bike.

How was your week? Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them.

Rave: The Way Through Doors - a contemporary novel that I absolutely loved!

Rant: Reality TV... I hate it because it sucks me in and upsets me so much more than is reasonable (I, too, really need a job!)

Rave: My Honey!!! Knows that i've been needing to study for my Praxis Exam and has been doing everything humanly possible to help and give me the quiet and space I've needed!

Rant: Friends who invited themselves to a party we threw last Saturday night when they found out through other friends that were truly invited...

Rave: Daffodils!

I may have to make a trip to Crumbs! Sounds like the perfect cure when I need something sweet in the late afternoon!

Rant: Why is Ron still on BL? SillyStud should appreciate this as well?

Rave: Ambien. Not every night but every so often it's a good thing.

Rant: The closest Crumbs I think is 20 miles from here. Sniff.
