Wednesday, January 27, 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 5, but want to thank you for taking the time to vote.
Rant: Job searching is incredibly frustrating. At times, I am accepting and patient, but right now I'm not. I guess it's part of the cycle.
Rave: I'm excited because I found a great free resource online to assist me in keeping my mind intact while looking - free online university courses.
Rave: Finding a really good book you can sink your teeth in. I'm reading Cleaving by Julie Powell. Although I find it disturbingly exquisite, I wouldn't recommend this book to people I know. Personally, she's not a someone I have sympathy for. Combine this fact, with the subject of butchering animals, the book is a tough read for most. However, she is raw, honest and is a wonderful writer.
Rave: I totally forgot until Living and Loving in LA reminded me in the comment section how I won 18 Rabbits through a giveaway she had. I'm even more excited because she put them in the mail and I can't wait to try. [FYI - 18 Rabbits does not mean I'm getting 18 new animals, it means I'm trying out a protein bar which is supposedly fabulous].
That's it for me. I would love to read any Rants and Raves you want to share?

Please be respectful and do not use the linky thing if you are just promoting your blog (yes, this is another Rant of mine).
