Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, May 6, 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: This may be childish, but am happy that Ron and Mike fell below the yellow line on the Biggest Loser Club (BLC) last night. They might be very nice people, but NBC editing has depicted them in a way that I want someone else to win.

Rant: I was also annoyed by Mike's constant comment on BLC how disappointed he was that he couldn't really do the marathon. As a person who has WALKED a marathon, it is tough and still a marathon. When tired, your only option is to crawl or get in a cab.

Rave: My marathon time was better than Mike's on the BLC. I beat him by 1 hour 14 minutes.

Rave: Being the cookbook whore that I am, I decided to choose 6 books/magazines a month and try 4 new recipes from each book or magazine. I love experimenting and have chosen some great things for this month.

Rant: One of the recipes I tried, smelled great and the first bite was wonderful. However, I now know when a recipe has soy sauce, chicken broth and fish sauce in it you'll eventually be eating a dish which should be entitled "Salt Lick".

Rave: Miss Rambles bestowed this lovely award on me:

I will be posting 10 random unknown things about myself later in the week.

I have a brain cramp today and that's all the Rants and Raves I have. How was your week? Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them.

That's awesome that you did a marathon...26.2 miles is 26.2 miles whether you walk it or run it! I'm sooo jealous...I can't wait to be in enough shape to make it 26.2 miles!!!

My whole post today is a rant...i'm back on the bitter bus about my no-worker co-worker!

Good job doing a full marathon. I've done about 50 half-marathons (walking of course) but don't think my old knees and feet would handle a full. The joys of a misspent youth playing football.

BTW - anything with soy sauce tastes way worse than a salt lick to me. Real mineral springs salt licks are actually kind of tasty. {*grin*}

Rave: My friends. they came out in full force to support me (no reflection on out of state friends) in my recent pottery show. Have sold nearly $1200 worth of my stuff and couldn't be happier to have a hobby that pays for itself.

Rave: My Honey you worked tirelessly before, during and after the pottery show.

Rant: My mom who I visit twice a week (since I'm unemployed) and can't keep herself from giving me grief when I need to do something on one of the days I usually visit... comments like "If you don't want to come and see me anymore, just say so" really irk me!

marathoner81 - you'll do it! Your co-worker sounds like a nightmare.

Children of the 90s - thanks :-)

Miss_Nobody - it'll be coming in the next few days

Dan - kudos to you for doing multi 1/2 marathons. It's tough.

SillyStud - your mom is one-of-a-kind.
