Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, July 8, 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:

Rant & Rave: Insomnia - it's come back, but luckily not to the extent it was like several months ago.

Rave: It had been several months since I've worn my interview suit, and today when I put it on, I noticed the jacket was a bit loose since the last time.

Rave: I had 2 willing tasters to partake in my crazy-ass cookbook cooking experiment. It also means friends came to dinner.

Rave: I had cute hair today for my interview. Most guys wouldn't understand or appreciate the importance of having cute hair, but most women do.

Rant: Still working through June's recipes for the crazy-ass cookbook experiment and it's the 8th of July. At this pace, I'll never get through my cookbook collection before the age of 90.

Rave: FABULOUS WEATHER here in CT....

So, how was your week? Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them or if you're doing your own Rant & Rave Wednesday, put your link in the comments section so others can read.

Insomnia is a terrible, terrible thing. Hope it leaves you alone. My rant for the day is when you mispronounce someone's name wrong and they get really angry at you. It might take me a few times to get it right, but I'll get it. Some people at my job get so agitated.

Cute hair is key : )

I like your rant/rave idea ... it's a nice way to put your week in perspective. I might give it a try on my blog, if you don't mind.

Sunshinemeg: I know exactly what that's like. I used to have clients with names not native to me. I got a lecture from one client how she hate when no one could pronounce her name. I made it a point to learn her name and the moment she addressed an email using my last name as my first name, ALL BETS WERE OFF(mind you this after 12 months of constant contact). I started using her last name because I could.

KLo - It's the best!

Please R&R it's the best.

Sheri - oooohhhh - I forgot how much I love pedicures. It always lifts my moods.

Vic - Wish it happened every day.

OP. Thanks. I did have a good interview and hope it went well.

DB - Yay to the great cute neighbor - boo to the work stuff.

Otin - Lucky you. Now stop gloating.

Miss Rambles - Yay for cash.

Midlife Jobhunter - I do - NOT.

Miss Yvonne - Yeah, that's why I was excited about the cute hair. IT NEVER HAPPENS.

Helen - the worst

LiLu - Wish I had cute hair everyday. I really hate hair care ads for pointing out how bad my hair looks daily!
