Rants and Raves 8-17-08

Rating: 6 votes, 5.00 average.
After reading all about blogging and reading a few blogs from a LOT of sites, I have decided to make my own BLOG. Mine will be a little different from blogs I have been reading though. I will not bore you with the mundane intimacies and details of my daily life, but instead I have decided to Rant and Rave. While I will try and update regularly, I do have a RL! The rules I have set for myself here are this.
1. Comments must be fairly current
2. For every Rant, there must be a Rave
3. No politics, religion or diaries


So let's start, shall we?

Rant: To the person who tailgated my husband and I when we went on a bike ride saturday with their car, then passed us WAY too close for comfort. Please read your traffic laws book again. What you did was not only dangerous but against the law.

Rave: To whoever planted wildflowers on the side of the freeway. Seeing the drifts of poppies, cosmos and sweet peas as I drive by just brightens my day!

Rant: Reading blog after blog yesterday (research can be tedious!) and finding out that some people really like to give far too many details of their everyday life. I mean, really... people, who wants to read about what clothes you decided to wear this day and how cool you look in them? Do you realize it is not only pointless from the readers standpoint, but it also makes one the author suffering from logherria? Visions of grandeur?

Rave: People trading pokemon on Pokefarm with the poke holding a gift. One of the best gifts I have received was simply a piece of mail that had a warm note inside. A simple and random kindness that made me feel fuzzy inside. Thank you!

Rant: Radio commercials. I know they have to make their money somehow, but now that I have CDs and my Ipod, they seem even more intrusive! The worst is the fast talkers at the end of an ad. Really, I know you only have so many seconds to talk, but does anyone really listen to whatever the APR is at signing and blahblah blah? Makes my hair stand on end!

Rave: Hersheys little foil wrapped candies called "BLISS." Need I say more?

    Steve has a point there!
    Rant: Old moldy brained people who have never blogged before should have stronger coffee in the morning before they start a new project that involves any sort of technology.

    Rave: Technology! This is so much better than when I was young and we had to rant and rave through two soup cans and a string!
