Wednesday, August 5, 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: Last week, my sister and her friend ventured into NYC for a canceled Steeley Dan concert. It turned out they rescheduled the concert for 8/12 - the day my sister's friend is on vacation. In a different state. Extra ticket. For me. Woo Hoo.
Rant: The excitement of going to the Steeley Dan concert lasted 2 whole days. In 2 days, my sister discovered tickets were still available for last night's performance and she was able to swap the tickets. What performer has decent seats still available 3 days before the show? [note: In full disclosure, I knew when the tickets were first offered there was this caveat that I'd go if they couldn't swap the tickets. However, when does this EVER happen?]
Rave: My friend's wedding gift, the compose tumbler, arrived. Yeah, I may be a dork, but a happy one.
Rant: People in parking lots. The other day I was pulling out of Whole Food's parking lot avoiding pedestrians. One on a cellphone, but she moved over to one side (sure, only because she reached her car) and another just turned around and saw my car. Did he move to one side or the other? Nope. He kept walking straight down the middle. People? Move it or lose it. Eventually he moved to one side (he found his car) and I gunned my turbo Passat right past him (okay, gunned at 10 mph is an exaggeration).
Rave: Discovering this website Kitchen Arts & Letters. A trip into NYC is in my future.
Rant: While checking out in grocery store, this woman pushed her way to stand right in front of the credit card swipe machine. She had missed the fact that my husband, 6'3", was standing 3 inches from the machine packing some bags. I was at the end of the conveyor belt packing bags and watching her. You could tell she wanted to push my husband out of the way and move her cart through. Best part, we JUST started checking out.
Rave: The pushy lady in grocery store overheard me say to hubby - "do you think that woman pushed you past the credit card machine so she could pay for our groceries? How thoughtful of her."
Yeah, I hate grocery shopping.
Rave: A couple of week's ago miss.chief's posted an entry: I took word verification off my blog. This post changed my life forever. If you have blogger, do this. I realize that I try posting on many blogs, but sometimes close out prior to finishing the word verification process. I figured if it drove me nuts, it might drive others the same who post on my blog.
That's it for me. Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them. rxBambi and Sheri at Life, Love and Other Drama has posted her own R&R Wednesday. Check it out.
