Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, January 20, 2010...


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: People listened to Beaker and voted again for me in Jules' Out-of-Tune competition. I won't know till later today if I made it to week 4, but want to thank you for taking the time to vote.

Rave: Tomorrow is my next food pantry dinner party and since I've been on a roll, I'm making Beef Bourguignon again. This was actually a special request.

Rant: I gained last month and it upsets me. Not just because I gained weight, but I base my food pantry contributions upon the number of pounds lost. Ergghhhh...

Rant: Not finding my rhythm. I mentioned last week how I'm in a winter funk and part of the funk is how I handle the day. Do I control it or does it control me? Okay, that's a completely different entry.

Rave: My Christmas decorations are down! Yes, Dan you can mock me. But, before you mock me, I think I deserve some points for getting the stuff down before the end of January.



That's it for me. I would love to read any Rants and Raves you want to share? 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).

Good luck with making it to Week 4!! It's okay about gaining. It was the holidays I think alot of us have gained more than lost this past month. But I see it as more motivation then anything else. Don't worry. *Hugs*. I somehow took down my christmas decorations too. Last year they were up til about March. lol. =P

Brian Miller said...

I am totally over rude people! I walk past people who I have seen virtually every day for over four years and say hi or smile and they look right through me??? Seriously, what's THAT all about? Manners cost nothing!

JennyMac said...

You have all of January to get them down. :) And have a fab time at your dinner. BB sounds great. Will Beaker make a guest appearance? And are you working on your ABBA song? :)

Don't know if this is worth ranting about -- raving, maybe.

I used to enjoy pro basketball on TV; now it seems a bit silly. Everyone has to be supernaturally tall.

When a player who's 7 foot ll or something similar, and who has to lean over to drop the ball in the basket, I have to wonder if that's what Naismith, basketball's inventor, had in mind.

I took my Christmas stuff down, but it's still sitting in the dining room. Added bonus? When I went home for lunch I realized our wreath is still on the front door.

I loved the Out of Tune Idol. I'm stuck on my weight loss. I guess I'll go walk now.

Debbie said...

The holidays are such a terrible time to try to lose weight. Hang in there! You can do it.

blueviolet said...

I'm glad you finally got that tree down! I sure hope your funk ends soon!

Herding Cats said...

I need to cook a Julia Child recipe ASAP.

otin said...

Ooohhh! I have not seen the idol results! I need to go look.

I have gained a couple of pounds. It sucks but oh well!

rxBambi said...

You've got us beat with the Christmas decorations. We have everything else down, but the outside lights are still in the trees. I'm surprised one of the crabby old bitties from the neighborhood association hasn't complained.

Tracey said...

I still need to vote. I hope it's not too late. I've been so busy!

You would not believe me if I told you all that's been going on here.

Hugs and love,

Unknown Mami said...

Give yourself a break on the weight loss. You'll get back on track.

Secretia said...
