I rave and I rant.

So I have already written and deleted about five entries for today, I am that decisive. And with all that writing and deleting I have decided to combine all my entries into one big freaking rant and rave. So here I go:

Rave: I saw Wall-E last night and loved it. Seriously, can I have a Wall-E? He was so freakin adorable (even if he does look like Johnny 5).
Rant: It seriously perturbed me that they used both actual humans and animated humans. Don't ask me why but I think they should have just stuck to the animated guys, I mean it is an animated film.

Rave: I went to this new restaurant near my job yesterday called Home and it was delicious, I mean seriously delcious.
Rant: I need to remember to never order a club sandwich again. They are HUGE. And I have no self control, haha. I was seriously full all night and didn't even have to have dinner. And really eating that much does not help my weight loss efforts.

Rave: I started reading "One for the Money" by Janet Evanovich by recommendation of my mom and I actually really like (but don't tell her, haha).
Rant: I only started reading it because I couldn't get into "The Time Traveler's Wife." Maybe I'll try it again another day, but for "One for the Money" it is.

Rave: I have so many fun things coming up every weekend from now until the end of August.
Rant: I'm busy from now until the end of August and it's just mildly overwhelming.

Rave: I am sort of in love with Kellie Pickler's "Red High Heels." Hell I'm in love with all things country right now, that's what summertime does, country and O.A.R. it can't be helped.
Rant: There are seriously no country radio stations in Los Angeles, WTF people?

Rave: I freaking love this picture of Matt and I from the wedding this weekend:

Rant: I do not remember taking it at all, haha.

Rave: Maybe I'm just on a Christian Bale kick that watching Batman Begins and reading articles cannot contain, but I've been listening to the Newsies soundtrack nonstop at work and my god I forgot how amazing it is.
Rant: It's mildly embarrassing to listen to musicals while I'm at work, haha.

Rave: The Dodgers are finally kicking ass and are only a game behind first in the NL West.
Rant: The All-Star break is coming up and it's going to be make or break for them per usual, I'm rooting for making it. Come on Blue!

Rave: Today is a new day :)

and what are your raves and rants of the day?

happy wednesday!


Hillary said...

Rant: It's only Wednesday.

Ben said...

Rant: humidity has got us caught in a savage heat wave.

Rave: my friends have an amazing, huge in-ground pool

Rant: Work has given me nothing to do all week.

Also, newsies was such a great musical! (note to self: watch that soon)

rialeilani said...

Rave: I have Friday off for a weekend trip

Rant: It's only Wednesday!

California Girl said...

Too many rants without enough raves so I'll stop while I'm ahead.

MIL hated Wall E, for kids at least. She thought it was so depressing that the world had inevitably gone to such a sour state.

I also couldn't get into the Time Traveler's Wife. Sad because so many people were raving about it.

Anonymous said...

I watched Wall-E yesterday too and the human/animated human thing bothered me immensely too!

And seriously I cannot get freaking Hello Dolly out of my head now!

Dana said...

Happy wednesday to you too!! love the pic of you and Matt - they always com out great when you don't remember taking them, lol..

rs27 said...

Rant- What's up the small OJ they give you at IHOP? First of all its not filling and secondly no free refills? Ridiculous.

Rave- Pancakes taste good.

La Petite Chic said...

Rave: It's only 8 more days until BlogHer!
Rant: BlogHer is still more than a week away!

La said...

All I have is a rant: And it's the I can't stand sitting at my job when I want to be in Boston. (And imagine that in a super whiney voice.)

And again, I must state for the record how fantastic your dress is.

Alexa said...

i know every word to the newsies soundtrack! it is nothing to be ashamed of!

Anonymous said...

Jenn said...

My mom loves Janet Evanovich. I'm tempted to pick up a book or two.

Bogart in P Towne said...

Didn't think so...back to my hole.

well-intentioned heartbreaker said...

rave: just spent my lunch with my girlfriend at the beach in the suuuunnn.
rant: she's still tanning at the beach and i had to walk back up to my office.

Anonymous said...

confession: i read the time traveler's wife...and while people RAVED about took a little while for me to get into it. and even then it was super confusing. it was okay. glad i read it, but....yeah. i'm not raving over here.

happy hump day! :) xo.

Vanessa said...

I seriously LOVED Wall E! I want my own Wall E if that was possible. He was just adorable and with the DVD coming out around Christmas, I already have an item on my list. A rant? I can't think of any right now. Maybe hot really unreasonably hot it is in Dallas?

Maxie said...

One For the Money is pretty good! I got lost on the 2nd one though.

rave: I'll be at the beach in less than 4 days!!!
rant: I'm sad now that I'm not going to get to hang out with awesome bloggers @ blogher.

Sarah Marie said...

Rave - Hopefully I get to go home at 5:30 rather than a million hours away at 9 p.m. or something dreadful like that.

Rant: Tomorrow is only Thursday, not Friday. Boo!

ooh, and I LOVED Wall-e.

Hollywood Sucker said...

Rave: I've been really busy at work lately so my days just fly by!

Rant: I've been really busy at work lately so I haven't had any time to read my favorite blogs.

Auburn Kat said...

Rave: I got a good workout in today and feel much better.

Rant: My feet are killing me from the workout!

Binary Blonde said...

Rave: I'm excited about seeing my family next week, back in Cali.

Rant: I'm not looking forward to the flight. 6 months pregnant and long plane flights don't mix!

L Sass said...

WALL-E! You know I loved it, too.

I also just adore that photo of you and Matt. Who cares if you don't remember it being taken!

Allie said...

Rave: I absolutely loved Wall-E. I totally want to see it again. It is one of my faves right. Loved it.

Rave: It's my Friday. Can I get a hell yeah for three day weekends. Woot woot!

Rant: The work day is not over yet and I'm so over it right now. Bleh!

Phil said...

Rave: I'm on my way back to Albuquerque to see my partner! I miss him like crazy, so I'm super excited.

Rant: My flight in Phoenix is delayed, so I'm stuck at the airport in Phoenix.

Rave: At least the Phoenix airport has free wifi. Hence I'm able to relax and read blogs. Oh, and as an extension to this rave, I think it's so awesome that the Phoenix airport always has sparrows hanging around. They're amazingly cute little fellas.

Those Janet Evanovich are fun, entertaining, and QUICK reads. A lot lighter than The Time-Traveller's Wife! (although I liked that too...)

d said...

OMG, try to get into Time Travellers Wife! It was the second best book I've read thus far this year (close lead by The History of Love).

I need to see Wall-e. DESPERATELY.

Traci Anne said...

Dude, there aren't any country stations in NYC either! WTF!

Blicious said...

haha you're so cute! great post! HAPPY FRIDAY!

LBIC said...

I've been having amazing dreams about Christian Bale for the past couple of nights, which I attribute to watching American Psycho in the car during my trip. It's been fantastic.

wishcake said...

Newsie's soundtrack? Yes, please.

"Dat's my cigar! You'll steal a'nudda!"
