Random Reader Rant and/or Revel

You can talk about whatever is on your mind – quality of life issues, a beautiful tree you spotted, scuttlebutt, or any random questions/thoughts you may have. I’ll open this thread every Monday and Friday. So anything good happen to you this long weekend?

  • rave: got a (small) promotion! yeah!
    rant: it comes with extra administrative BS paper work and managerial junk… boo!

  • Rave for living in North Country – forgot and left my blackberry on the front passenger seat, in plain view, overnight. Came out the next morning and no broken glass or other attempts at theft. Woohoo!

    • One time I thought I closed my door shut. Went out to dinner. Came home and the door was wide open, cat standing on the porch (an indoor cat). Nothing taken. Counted my blessings a lot that night.

  • Rave: Dog #1 is recovering nicely from the life-threatening infection she picked up a couple weeks ago. She had the time of her life running around on the beach this past weekend.

    Rant: Just learned that Dog #2’s detached retina is unfixable, 6 months and $2500 of treatments and surgery later. He’s only 4 years old and won’t be able to see out of that eye ever again. Really sad!

  • Saw some creative types riding red bicycles during lunch today.

  • RANT: beyond losing one of the best roommates ever, my cat is also upset about my roommate leaving. So much so in fact that she’s stopped using the litter box. I’ve done everything I can do, so my vet’s putting my cat on prozac. I can’t even begin to describe how I’m feeling about this. Ridiculous…

    Rave: my Dad’s visiting this weekend.

    • rave: hearing another person’s story about how their cat is ‘upset’ and needs prescription medication.

      • rave: smartass comments about someone’s pain and suffering over a distraught pet.
        rant: wasting money on kitty prozac

      • You try having a cat pee all over your apartment. Yeah, you’ll do anything to stop that.

        Glad my cat’s attitude made your day though–what icing! (insert sarcasm and inappropriate hand gesture here)

  • Rant – My boss is utterly, painfully incompetent. I’ve learned to hate my job so much I’m considering leaving the feild altogether.

    Rave – Each day comes to an end. Alcohol.

    Rant: Spent my long weekend sick.
    Rave: Almost well.

  • This disgusting pig.


    The only thing worse than metro, it turns out, is metro police.

    • That’s quite a rant-able event. She was walking away when he jumped her. If someone did that to my friend, the metro cop would be on the ground in a second. I’m a lot stronger than than this guy. Second party self defense of a sexual assault.

      • See, incidents like this, and similar violations performed by cab drivers, are why many people (especially small women) decide to drive drunk instead of taking public transit. Just let the girl get home safely!

  • Say farewell to Mrs. Rhee. It was nice well it lasted. Too bad you did not stay long enough for most of us to get to know you.
