3 Rants and a Rave

Its time to play 3 Rants and a Rave again, on this the 3rd day of November, just one day before the 4th day of November 2008, the day that shall live in (infamy?) for ever more.

Rant 1: Politics!!! I am downright exhausted. The biggest "change" I'm looking forward to is more Sonic ads ("You want some Fries with that Shake?"), fewer "Change" ads.
(Question: Why hasn't anybody on the McCain/Palin ticket been nicknamed "Goose"?)

Rant 2: Being a grown-up. Being a grown-up is hard. Especially when it involves using the word "No".

Rant 3: Christmas Music. Don't get me wrong, I like to "Fa ra ra ra ra" along with the best of 'em. However...I thought I had a bad case of tintinitus on Saturday (yes, one day past Halloween) when what to my wondering ears did appear... "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day". Come to find out, this music has been playing 24/7 for WEEKS now! AGH!

Rave: "The World According to the Little Fish"-always well written, often quite touching. Mina is always aware of exactly what makes her tick.

I've always wanted to have Christmas dinner at a Chinese restaurant just to see if they'd sing.

Also, with the exception of Sarah Palin, I wonder where John I've-been-in-the-senate-for-decades McCain gets off talking about bringing "change" to Washington. He freakin' IS Washington. Too bad the alternative is a socialist who wouldn't mind bankrupting the coal industry. You big stud. Tax me to death or lose me forever.

Also. Aww, shucks. Thanks for the rave. I think I can indeed pin-point what makes me tick. The question is ... does anyone care? Well, besides you. ;-)

Jillene said...

Brittany said...

Christmas music makes my heart hurt.

Mina said...

Brittany--you mean Christmas music EARLY, right? Please?

Mina said...

I was going to say, but hit the my track pad instead of the return bar, my word verification was elverse. El verse? Is that one fourth of El Hymno de Navidad?

(Now it's gonhall. I think I've gonhall crazy blogging too much this morning. Time to go get something done!)

Can't we just have a time out? NOT ready for Christmas yet!

Christmas music is not allowed at our house until after my birthday (Nov 13). And yes, it is hard being a parent (and an adult sometimes, too)!

I pretty much had an anxiety attack yesterday when I saw a Christmas commercial. I feel like i need to have my shopping done, and it's still a month and a half away!
