Rant and Rave Wednesday

Wednesday, July 21, 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 several weeks:


Rave: Great day in NYC on Saturday.

Rave: Another Food Pantry dinner tomorrow night with good friends.

Rant: I'm living on the set of Disney's Bambi 2 (I added this in for people who might jump to the thought that this may be the name of a porn movie). I was having issues with Woody in my garden, but he invited guests: Bambi, Thumper, Stupid Ass Squirrel (SAS) and both Chip and Dale. Chip and Dale are not the offenders, but SAS has gone after the tomatoes - he pulls the green ones off the vine and takes 1 freakin bite. He thinks it a nut and then when he discovers it is not, he leaves the tomato on the ground. Bambi ate 1/2 the tomato plants and squash leaves and Thumper the rabbit, the Brussels sprouts and squash blossoms. Like a crazy woman, I caught the squirrel in the act and chased it away earning the title crazy squirrel lady.

Rave: Melatonin. I posted something about insomnia several weeks back and many said to try melatonin. I had heard it was good from several others and thought I'd give it a shot. It doesn't help me fall asleep faster, but does keep me in a nice uninterrupted sleep once I do fall asleep.

Rave: If you haven't voted for LiLu for MTV TJ (see left hand nav bar icon) please do so. MTV is taking votes until tomorrow afternoon and wouldn't it be great to see a blogger fulfill her dream.

Rave: Loving my writer's workshop. I'm learning so much from the moderator (English professor) and pushing me to do more.


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).

Rant: Left office today at 8:30

Rave: Boss is out for a week starting Friday; I am out for 2 weeks starting next Friday, which means total of 3 weeks w/o boss

That is what electric fencing is for. {*grin*} Give Bambi and SAS a new outlook on life.

Rant: I hate when men don't read the instructions. You're not ALL geniuses!

Rave: The weather's finally cooled down! Yay!

I'm so happy your loving your writer's workshop!! That's wonderful!! Melatonin? I've never heard of that helping sleep. I think I'm going to ask about it because I have problems having restful sleep. Good luck with your food pantry dinner!! =)

I'm glad for all your raves. I must admit to giggling about the SAS rant though. I live in the country as well. Many people around here use rubber snakes in the garden and aluminum pie pans tied on stakes (they make noise in the wind). I have a cat that patrols my yard. He'll even chase off deer. Highly recommend.

RAVE: I just wanted to let you know that Andy tried the pepper on the plant leaves and the critters have backed the eff off. I did see the ginormous hedgehog rumbling around in our neighbors yard though - hope he stays over there.

RAVE: It is cool enough to turn off the A/C for a day and let the breeze flow through.

RANT: My fantasy baseball pitching staff SUCKS and there isn't anybody else available out there any better.

Glad to hear your writing workshop is enjoyable. What a nice treat.

I'm glad the melatonin is helping with sleep. It stinks to have sleep issues.
