Wednesday, September 16, 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: Hello? It's National LMB's Birthday Week. So far, called a gf last minute and had lunch with her yesterday outside by the Saugatuck River. I've known her forever and we never run out of things to talk about. AND....Ben & Jerry's sent me a coupon for a free scoop of ice cream because it is my birthday this month.
Rant: Why is it that people can't read or obey the traffic sign 'right or left lane closed ahead'. Two times this past week I've watched idiots think they are better than others and zip ahead to the last possible moment and cut off drivers. Freakin idgits.
Rave: Survived first week of WW with a 4.6 lb weight loss. I'm so excited that a food shelter is being helped because of my efforts.
Rave: Had Spidey Man over for dinner the other night. He cracks me up. He brought me brownies that his electrician brought him as a thank you marketing gift. Is it me, or are brownies a strange marketing gift?
Rant: My bad blogging behavior. Ca-Joh was generous enough to include me in a Tuesday Tribute post in which several bloggers were asked 2 simple questions. He sent us the email with the questions last week and I read the first question as if I were on the game show Jeopardy (a fantasy of mine to be on it and win or at least know a majority of the answers before they've moved on to the next question). I read the question "Why do you follow my blog" as "Why do I blog" (Jeopardy speed reading at my best). After I read his entry I emailed him and he politely changed my answer to reflect the question. Thank you Ca-Joh.
Rave: Finding my voice with my neighbor. My neighbor has 3 dogs. She's never home and leaves her living room window open and one dog positions himself with his face in the window to BARK. He's a doberman and his bark is loud and deep. I know dogs bark, but her dog barks for long clips of time (we're talking minimum of 30 minutes to 1 1/2 hours). It's ANNOYING. The other night, I had it (this has been going on for the past 6 to 8 months). I called and left a message (she wasn't home) asking if the dog was ill or maybe he was just really lonely, but I was tired of hearing him bark for 1/2 hour to 1 hour clips. Yesterday, got up, went out and noticed the living room is now closed. Guess what. No barking at all hours of the day and night (and I mean ALL hours).
That's it for me. Any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to hear them. Matty's Thoughts, rxBambi and Green Eyed Momster have posted their own R&R Wednesday. Check them out.
