Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, June 30, 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. I have to admit, being away for over a month has you overlook the negatives and only remember the positives. Without further adieu, here are my Rants and Raves from the past several weeks:


Rave: Friend from Egypt in town. Can't wait to catch up with her.

Rant: Insomnia still in full swing.

Rant: Wally Watch 2010. Us against the woodchuck eating my parsley, peppers and cucumbers. I've gone through a lot of cayenne pepper (bunnies and woodchucks hate cayenne pepper) and am now trying to trap him/her with watermelon. Once we capture Woody safely, s/he will be relocated to a location far away from here and I will enjoy a Woody free zone. Wait....that may have sounded wrong.

Rave: Haven't gone grocery shopping in 2 weeks. Hubby's gone and I'm happy. I hate grocery shopping because no matter what time of the day I go, it's jammed packed.

Rave: Weather is going to cool down for long July 4th holiday weekend.

Rave: Scottish festival is this weekend. Nothing like a good adult heavyweight caber toss to make me amused. Seriously. Ever see one? I haven't a clue why, but totally fascinated with it.

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

I hope you have fun with your visitor and that Scottish festival sounds like a great time!

Being a full blooded Scottish person complete with stupid accent, I have seen many caber tosses. I don't know what possessed grown men to don a skirt and throw tree trunks while grunting, but whatever blows your hair back I guess...

Woody free zone reminds me of my friend who's a big Toy Story fan and one Christmas he got some of the model figurines for presents. When I asked him what he got he said "I got a Buzz from my brother and my mom gave me a Woody."

Yeah. He'll get to forget THAT, ever.

Sorry to hear about the sleepless nights...hope this gets better soon!
If trapping Woody does not work, try coyote urine...works great to keep all of Gods creatures away from your consumables.
Hope you are taking your friend from Egypt to the Scottish Festival.
Happy 4th

I wonder your secret - how do you manage not to go to the grocery store for two weeks?

McGillicutty said...

Rant: i want to see Scots men tossing their cabers

Rave: if you go to the store at 7am it's not so bad.

Rant: someone in close proximity to me is being a bitch.

Rave: it's forcing me to re-evaluate my life.. hopefully for the better.

Rave: I love your rant & raves!!!

So you just sprinkle Cayenne Pepper where? Around the plants in the dirt? Or on the actual plants? Andy is losing his crop of cukes to the bunnies and it is sad to watch.

Melanie's Randomness said...

Ohh you do have a lot going on! Friend from Eygpt? That's pretty Cool! Hope you guys get to catch up! Insomnia? I used to have that then I discovered the Bob Newhart show the one in the hotel. It put me right out. I imagine you got tons of things going on in your mind but maybe doing some simple tasks & completeing them might make you feel relieved so you can relax. I love festivals but I've never been to a Scottish one! Have fun!! Happy 4th!

P.S. I responded to your email dear I'm not sure if you got it or not! Good luck with it!

mylittlebecky said...

Joanna Jenkins said...

Enjoy,
