Rant and Rave Wednesday

It's been a while since I've done a Rant and Rave Wednesday and today seems like a good day to get some stuff off my chest. Be sure to stop by Little Ms Blogger and see what she's Rantin' and Ravin' about today.

Rave: I'm so happy LMB put a Mr Linky on her site so we can all see who's ranting and raving. It's a great way to see new bloggers.

Rant: I joined NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writers Month) and we're supposed to write a book this month. 50,000 words. I have squat and it's past mid-month. I don't wanna be a loser, but I don't see it happening.

Rave: I got an award! Two of them actually, but since it's the same award I'm only gonna count it as one. Both of the fabulous bloggers, Fidgeting Gidget and Esmerelda, have bestowed upon me the I Should Have Been a Stripper Award. However did they know I am used to be once for my husband pretended love this award? Thank you so much ladies!

On a side note, I thought I read somewhere that this is not the proper name for this award and that somehow it got messed up. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, feel free to leave the proper name.

Rant: There are always rules to awards. I'll follow some and some I wont. Here are the rules:
  • Post it (done)
  • List 7 personality traits
    • Bitchy (yep it's true)
    • Winey (no I didn't mean whiny)
    • Friendly (most of the time)
    • Procrastinating (usually)
    • Hungry (what? I'm ready for lunch)
    • Witty (at least I think I am)
    • Lovable (awww, ain't that sweet?)
    • Sexy (yeah that's 8, but I am. So there. You can add rebellious too.)
  • Pass it on to 7 other worthy bloggers. No. I ain't gonna. BUT if you have always wanted to be a stripper and think you'd look good as a pink Peep, this award is yours for the taking! Really, just snap it up and post it on your blog. We won't tell. Say it's from me.
Rant: My damn lovable dog keeps scratching at the door. All stinking morning it's let the dog in let the dog out let the dog in let the dog out let the dog in let the dog out.

Rave: KU beat Memphis last night. Okay really I'm not a huge KU fan, or basketball in general, but I bet CBT again and again I WON! I wonder what sort of foolishness he's gonna try this time.

Rant: Or Rave: I haven't decided yet. Tonight we are going to another basketball game. It's SLU Billikins (hubby is an alum). I like basketball ok, but really, a double header last night and another game tonight. That's a little much for me. At least basketball is inside so I don't have to worry about the weather. On the bright side hubby is taking me out for dinner first, so it's like a real date. And I'll get wine. Okay, let's put it under Rave.

Rave: I have nothing to do today. Of course I could be doing laundry or cleaning or any number of domestic things around the house, but instead I'm going to shower, nap, read, and blog. Ha. Plus I've already walked the dogs AND worked-out, so I am all set to veg out for a while.

Go check out Little Ms Blogger!

Oh SNAP! This is my 100th post! Woohooo!

OMG first to comment, that never happens. Congrats on 100!

Matty said...

You sure are on a hot streak with the betting. Maybe you should head to Vegas before you cool off.

According to Otin, you ARE a stripper. At least that's what I've been hearing.

Congratulations on the award.

Ice Queen said...

This is actually one of the awards I've been after. Why? Let's be honest...I would make one hell of an adorable peep. Haha!

Consider it snapped!

Brian Miller said...

congrats on the awards! and enjoy the day with nothing to do...and of course the date!

Green-Eyed Momster said...

Happy 100th post! Great Raves the Rants weren't too bad!
Happy date, wine, game and then the striptease? ;)


Fidgeting Gidget said...

Yay for stripping!!

Yay for 100 posts!

And your hubby went to SLU?? The only reason I know what SLU is is because I lived with two girls when I was in college that hailed from Belleville, IL and they had lots of friends that went there. I've been to Bellevegas, it's nice! :) I'm sure you're close by.

Little Ms Blogger said...

I joined NaNo and am in the same boat, but if it gets me motivated to write 10 words I'm happy.

Congrats on the award.

tori said...

I so didn't know you were doing Nano! I have decided to take a Fail. I suck! oh well.
congrats on the award and have a good day off!

Otter Thomas said...

You are quite the sports wife. The cardinals and now basketball double headers. Good for you and the hubby.

Jay said...

Here's my rant about NaNoWriMo: Why do they always want to do this in November? Hello? Thanksgiving, days with family around, beginning of Christmas crap. Who has time for that novel writing crap. They should do this in January when everyone is inside trying to stay warm.

Also, didn't I guess I called the Louisville/Arkansas game huh? Did you bet on that one after I told you Louisville would whip 'em?

Of course I can't confirm that Rick Pitino nailed his new mistress in a restaurant afterwards. But, the odds are pretty good that he did. ;-)

Congrats on post #100!

blueviolet said...

Congrats on your award!!! And post 100!

What's with your dog and being fickle?

I hope you're enjoying your day of nothingness, by the way.

Sara said...

Congrats on your 100th!

Shouldn't rebellious have been one of the main words?

otin said...

Hungry is a personality trait??

If it is any consolation, I think that nano nano or what ever the hell they call it, is really silly.

congrats on 100!!!!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Congratulations on your 100th pot. That's BIG!!!
And I'd shower, nap and read over laundry any day!

AudreyO said...

50,000 words? Wow, that's a lot. I write articles and they average about 300 or 350 words. If I complete 10 of them I'm doing the happy dance and that's still under 5,000 words.

Gaston Studio said...

Congrats on your 100th and the stripper award (or whatever it's called)!

Enjoy your day of freedom!

Carbunkle Trumpet said...

100 posts of dribble (oh wait that's my blog!)
No I did bet you a dollar a point in the game for your favorite charity and I am a man of my word shoot me them again and I will mail ya some cashola. Oh and I am not that much of a cheap-o, I plan on adding some more to the check than a whopping 2BZE!

marinik said...
