Freaky Friday Rants and Raves -- 10/29

Message: Well, I feel like I'm sitting in someone else's swimming pool, but, I guess I'll start it. Where the heck are all the usual starters?

Rave: I have the day off, and I don't have to go anywhere this weekend. Don't get me wrong, I love to travel, but it's nice to have a weekend at home every so often.

Rant: Had to replace the battery in my car this week. Took me 3 days to get it jump-started good enough to drive it to the mechanic shop. Got home late that night and discovered I'd forgotten to pay the water bill. Grrrr ...

Rant-to-be: I'm gonna be embarrassed if somebody beat me to this ...

Message: OneWanderingJew: I'll answer you on this thread, and maybe the other post will fizzle. My daughter had the same scary test results with her 2nd child. She had to go out of town for extensive (also expensive) ultrasound tests every month. Nothing abnormal ever showed up after the first test, and the baby was born perfectly healthy. I'll keep my fingers crossed that your baby will be fine, too.

Message: Rave: Daughter is knee deep in college apps. I am thankful that she has lots of options.

Rant: Options = decisions= stress. My husband is in California this week, so I am the sole beneficiary of her stress.

Rant: It was raining and traffic was awful coming home this afternoon.

Rave: Saw a great rainbow as I came up the final stretch into Manoa.

Message: Rave: the BMW M 6 is on the way to CA and I have 80% of my 1993 purchase price in the bank.

Rave: the buyers (no agent and "as is") of my house (visitors @ my garage sale last w/e) have qualified and the inspector is coming today.

Rant: Voted early (7:00) on Thurs AM and still waited 35 min - nearly all were doing a straight Republican ticket so it was faster than I thought given the lines.

Rant: Texas is going Republican, so my vote is simply a confirmation. I (and my many dead relatives) tried to vote in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, but...

Rant: Microsoft Internet Explorer crashed big time today - took 12 hours to reconstruct - solution: http:/ptech.wsj.com/archive/ptech-20040916.html
Should have done that when it was published a couple weeks ago.

Rant: Despite my Seer 19 A/C, my electric bill is rising - $0.107/KWH this month c/w $0.094/KWH last several.

Rave: The many charities coming to clean out the junk in my house left over from the 1 day garage sale.

Happy fin de semana.

Rant: I have a dental appointment at 10:30 and I am so nervous. Is anyone else afraid of their dentist?
Rave: After the dental appointment, if I am still alive I am going to Edinboro to visit my son in college.
RANT: The steelers play New England on Sunday at the same time our town is having trick or treating. GO STEELERS.

Rave--Less than a month til my marathon!

Rave--Getting to go back and visit friends when we go to Seattle for it

Rave--DS football team is undefeated and going to the playoffs!

Rave--Had a great time at our college homecoming last weekend! Great game, weather turned and was good, great tailgater(is there such a thing as a bad one???), saw lots of old friends.

Rant--On our way home from homecoming last weekend DS called and said he was sick. He was staying with a friend, so we felt awful that that family was taking care of our sick child. But we were driving through our wine country anyway, so stopped at one winery, did a VERY quick tasting and bought a few bottles to bring back for that family as well as the other family that DD was with. So didn't get to enjoy the area as much since we were in a hurry.

Rave--Already voted. Oregon...so never any lines...all by mail.

Scarlett, I am allergic to fire ants--I physically get sick and swell; when I was last bit my husband, Trapper John MD , gave me topical steroids which made all the difference in the world. Before the steroids I tried everything under the sun. Good luck!

Rant: Miss Killer has a bladder infection

Rave: She is getting better

Rave: Season 6 of The Amazing Race!

Rave: Have you heard - The Red Sox are World Champions!!!!!

I've been a fan my entire life. I remember going to Fenway back in the '60s with my Dad and 7 siblings. The guys at the turnstyles let a couple of us in for free because they didn't him to have to pay for so many kids. I think the tickets were 50 cents each. The next time I went to Fenway I was probably a freshman in college, still sitting in the bleachers, drinking beer, hardly watching the game at all. And then moving up to grandstand seats, box seats and eventually to a luxury box on occasion. We've followed the team to Toronto, Seattle and Baltimore. We've been to all the minor league teams games. Its been a long hard heartbreaking roadtrip but its been so great, so much fun.

Rave: Yankee fans who are as dedicated and committed as Red Sox fans. None of this would be the same if we didn't have each other to compete with. Thanks Ryan, Craig, and all of the other NY posters this past weeks.

Rave: Red Sox Fodorites - thanks for sharing this great experience these past fews weeks. Its been fun posting and sharing.

Rants: These flying pigs are driving me crazy.
