Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, December 9, 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: My ear ache and infection are pretty much gone. It's nice hear and great that I don't feel miserable.

Rant: I'm annoyed how some doctors show absolutely no respect for their patients and think they're God.

Rant: Weight Watchers giving corn points. Seriously, they're the only food that comes out looking the same way as it went in. The corn is just taking the intestines park ride.

Rave: Date night did happen, BUT...because I ate a late lunch, we just went to see Blindside. We skipped the rest because I actually like to be warm. I know, I'm high maintenance. [Side note: My husband appreciated all the comments which has fuelled him to come up with more clever suggestions].


Rave: I got these great kick-ass sneakers which controls my supination problems with my feet. It's amazing what a great pair of sneakers will do for you.


That's it for me. Okay, I have a brain cramp and my mind has gone blank. But I would love to hear if you have any Rants and Raves you want to share? I would love to read them. Just click on the linky thing for anyone that wants to participate in Rant and Rave Wednesday -- or leave them in the comments section here. Please be respectful and do not use the linky thing if you are just promoting your blog (yes, this is another Rant of mine).

There was a comedian, forgot who, who said "why do we bother chewing corn?"

New England Girl said...

I am so happy to hear your ear is feeling so much better! But I completely agree with you about most doctors god complexes. They need to begin leaving those at the door.

Ahahahahahahahahaha!!!

Oh, that totally just made my day. ;-)

Wednesday already? :)

Mine's up. I forgot to mention one Rave though and that's the emails we've shared!

Hugs!!

Spot said...

I just wanted to tell you that when I told my hubby about your hubby's plan he said "That man is a genius!". Yeah, he was totally impressed.

Deborah said...

I'm glad you can hear again!
Happy Wednesday!!

rxBambi said...

I'm glad you're feeling better too.

Love the thoughts on corn!

Natasha said...

Happy your ear is better! Hooray for kick ass shoes!!

I joined in today :)

Goose said...

Did you get those shoes that are supposed to shape your legs as you walk? If so let me know if they really work.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher – He’s got a point.

New England Girl – They need to be a patient who doesn’t have a clue about their ailment.

LiLu - Go ahead laugh. I just may make it a group on FB – “People Who Feel WW screwed us over by placing a point value on corn”.

Green-Eyed Momster – Yupper. Ahhhh thanks. I feel the same way.

Spot – LOL. I’m hoping you can convince your husband to bring the beer indoors and get something you’d like & even spring for TWO beers.

Deborah – So am I.

rxBambi – Thanks. Funny, I thought I’d gross out people on the corn comment.

Natasha – YAY… I’ll come pop over.

Dan said...

The only question that I had was if you meant to say "Weight Watchers *not* giving corn points ..."

For if they give corn points there is no room to rant - so you'd have to rave. {*grin*}

(How's that for gross - a semantic nit on an analysis of the potty properties of corn.)

Barb said...

Glad you are better. Maybe you can just deduct the points from the corn when you see it the second time?
I'm ranting and raving too. Thanks!

otin said...

Boy, that ear really has plagued you? I hope that it is gone for good.

What is supination? now I have to go Google, haha!

Brian Miller said...

corn...really?

glad the ear is better...

i hear blindside was really good...

Little Ms Blogger said...

Dan – Wow…whole different direction…and one I’m glad they don’t base their point system on.

Barb – LOL. Don’t I wish.

Otin – Yes it has and I’m impressed no juvenile comment about the corn and poop.

Brian - Blindside was excellent. Definite a movie worth seeing.

Matty said...

Send him over here. We hubbies will exchange ideas. Glad you're feeling better.

Sara said...

Rant: People who still pay with a check at the grocery store.

Melanie's Randomness said...

your post about the date night was soo funny but still sweet. =)

I'm really happy to hear your ear infection has gone!!

I was watching the biggest loser finale and I saw they were doing the pound for pound of food challenge like you mentioned so I told my mom about you and she was like Woa that's pretty cool that lady does that. So my mom sends Kudos to you!! =)

Herding Cats said...

It's sad but I think about that every time I eat corn...

Jewels Diva said...

Ahhhhhhhh don't get me started on doctors!!!!!!!

That corgi :) said...

did you like Blindside? I heard it was good. I think one of the classes they teach in medical school is how to get a big ego and make your patients miserable.

Kelly's Ideas said...

Love the ranting and raving!

Love to you

Matty – What do you think I am nuts? That’s not going to happen.

Sara – LOL. I haven’t seen that done in about a year. I get dirty looks when I pay cash.

Melanie’s Randomness - My hubby is really a wonderful guy who loves to get me to laugh. I’m pretty lucky.
Wow – you told your mom about my food pantry dinners? Tell her I said thanks for the words of encouragement. It definitely motivates me more.

Herding Cats - LOL. I’m glad I’m not the only nut that thinks that.

Jewels Diva - It’s terrible when one bad one spoils the bunch.

That Corgi – I loved Blindside and I agree with you on the medical school class.

Kelly’s Ideas – Thanks and I’ll come drop by.

kk said...

glad you're feeling better!

perhaps you can hit up the fast food hot spots on the next date night!

Actual Scale said...

corn points....LMAO

kys said...

I'm glad you're feeling better. I need to get back on the ww wagon. Ugh.

Unknown Mami said...

I'm with you on the doctor issue. It is infuriating how arrogant some doctors can be.
