Rant and Rave Wednesday

Thanks to Little Ms Blogger for initiating Rant and Rave Wednesday so that I can get it all out and yet still find some good stuff too. If I want to find good stuff that is.

Rave: I had a fabulous time checking everyone out at the Annual Willow Manor Ball. It was marvelously attended and my date, Otin, was quite the catch. Of course I think we all were quite fetching. It was fun and I can't wait until the 3rd annual Ball...

Rant: Stinkin Otin said he'd rather be there with Kate Beckinsale. Sheesh. That's okay tho, I had plenty of other dashing young highlanders lined up on my dance card.

Rave: I also found out that Otin is NOT really James Alexander Malcolm McKenzie Fraser (I think he might be Stephen Bonnet!!!). Thank my lucky stars for figuring out that one. Now I can continue my quest for the real Jamie Fraser Not some Irish/Italian thinking he can fool me into believing he's a Scottish Highlander. From the 18th Century, no less!! The nerve!

Rant: I have these fabulous-looking shoes, they are Borns. I bought them because Borns are known to be comfortable and I have purchased in the past and they are great working on your feet all day.
However, these shoes suck. They are fine for an hour or so, but if I have to walk anywhere I'm screwed. In fact, they are so bad that the balls of my feet hurt long after I take them off. I wore them tonight for the Field Hockey Banquet and I about died. I haven't had them on for a good hour or more and I just went down to the basement to get a bottle of red (Pillar Box) and my feet still hurt!! What's the deal Born???

Rave: These are the only middle-heel black shoes I have that aren't sandals. I guess I need to go shoe shopping. Darn it all...Plus I really need some rain shoes...

Rant: It's been raining for days on end...
Rave: I don't get out of bed to walk the dogs when it rains
Rant: Between all the rain and my working last week for my friend the dogs haven't been walked in almost 2 weeks
Rant: today I sucked it up and got out of bed and walked 2.5 miles in the rain
Rave: It only drizzled, so it was okay, and now my doggies love me again...

Rant: I didn't want to go workout. My trainer is a she-devil.

Rave: I did it anyway. And now I feel good about myself. And she's really not a she-devil. I actually like her a lot -- after my workouts anyway.

Rave: Here's Barb working out with Snickers a couple weeks ago. Aren't they cute??

Rant: Now I have to go pay my speeding ticket. I actually have to go to the courthouse and pay it. The reason for this is that I am a slacker. I got the ticket 3 weeks ago and didn't pay it. Today is the last day before they put out a warrant for my arrest. I really don't think I'd do well in jail. I like orange and all, but what if they made me wear horizontal stripes?? That just wouldn't do at all. Plus I'm not sure they would let me have my evening glass of wine. I am a much happier person with that.

Rave: Really, is there any thing to rave about paying a speeding ticket? I guess I can be glad that the police in my town have nothing better to do than to wait at the bottom of the hill on the highway to catch speeders leaving town.

What are you ranting and raving about today???

I just thought of another one:

Rant: I hate it when non-bloggers make fun of me for blogging. They just don't get it.

Rave: I am having a fabulous hair day :)

I am ranting that there are not enough hours in the day to sit and read all the amazing posts about the ball at willow manor. I just want to curl up with a hot cup of coffee and a blankie and read, read, read! I'm amazed by the creativity of everyone!!!

Brian Miller said...

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Yay for working out and shoe shopping!
Sorry about the rain and the ticket.
I ranted about taking the dog to the vet today. He doesn't like to go there or anywhere in a vehicle. :sigh:


Ice Queen said...

I get made fun of all the time for blogging. I think they're just jealous I won't give them the url.

Love your pooches!

Matty said...

Bambi, you're on a roll today with these rants and raves. Better slow down.......LOL.

I get the same thing too about blogging. I get the stares, the looks, the eye rolls, and of course for good measure, the laughs. And that's all just from my wife.

Good for you that you worked out, and went in the rain. That's dedication.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

You ARE having a fabulous hair day! I'm a bit jealous. Mine never looks good unless I'm getting ready for bed. I usually hate my hair. Maybe I should get a job working nights..? Nah, I like sleeping too much!


Marion Williams-Bennett said...

So what's up with the Born shoes...are the only for STANDING not walking!? Great rants - the speeding ticket thing totally sucks, but your great hair makes up for everything!

On to Thursday!

Loredana said...

Rant: I have been freezing my 'non-ba*ls' off all day in this office because they have NOT turned the heat on yet.

Rave: That gives me reason to walk outside and shop where it's actually COOLER! Go figure!

Mango Girl said...

That was Hilarious!!!!

Love the picture with the handcuffs! Did a non blogger do that to you????

Have a wonderful evening!!!

xo, Mango

otin said...

You didn't get that ticket running away from your date? Did you??

What is it with you women and cock today?? I had 3 comments today with the word cock in them, and I did not even say anything to egg you people on! HAHAHA!!

McGillicutty said...

Ummm WOW you Are having a fabulous hair day, you probably had "it" last night!!!!! That should be your new profile pic.

Little Ms Blogger said...

I really don't talk about blogging with non-bloggers. I have gotten the look before of 'you're weird' or 'how can you really make friends that way?'. I've stopped.

Sorry about the ticket and having to go to the courthouse.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Non-bloggers look at me like I'm an alien or speaking a foreign language if I mention blogging.

You certainly ARE having a fabulous hair day! :)

Aptly Inappropriate said...

love the idea of ranting and raving in the same blog! God forbid you should ever wind up in jail, I will do what I can to make sure you get your evening glass of wine, you can even pick out the glass size to drink it out of :)

JW.BW said...

You hair does look FANTASTIC!! Im really starting to question Otins sanity, picking Kate over YOU?? hmmm... Ok Bambi, come ON!! Life is tooo short to wear painful shoes! Toss them and go shopping!! Jail would be bad. if you did get your glass of wine, it might be ruined by the fact that it was made in a toilet bowl!!!

The Fragrant Muse said...

I learned from my son that if you actually show up on the day they give you if you want to fight your speeding ticket and the cop doesn't show, you don't have to pay it. The cop hardly ever shows up.

Gaston Studio said...

Just found you so am new here but... I just love that you went to Willow's ball with Otin and he in a fabulous kilt, no less!

Medora said...

Otin a catch? I almost wet my pants when I read that one. You must have no real men for comparison.

Mountain Woman of Red Pine Mountain said...

Oh, I loved your rants and raves. I've had one pair of Born shoes for years and I love them. Now all I wear are barn boots so they sit in the closet.
A fabulous hair day would make me smile too.
Your doggies are so adorable and congratulations for making yourself work out. That's sometimes the hardest thing for me.
The more you blog, the more non-bloggers will think you are some strange entity but hey, they don't know what they are missing.
