So, one thing that really gets my goat is rubbernecking. I can not seem to handle it when everyone slows way down just to be nosy. it kills me.

What are your pet peeves?

Al Gore won the Nobel Peace Prize.

I wonder what the Ranters will have to say about that.

I had to post this because it was killing me that every time I opened Rant Fever, I would see "Marriage for you, babies for me."

That is all.

So, I've decided I could use a few laughs, and thought I'd ask the guys: what are some of your best pick-up lines?

Conversely, ladies, what are the absolute worst pick up lines that have ever been used on you?Read more...

Marriage for you, babies for me.

I think I remember a rant in which someone discussed the feeling of everyone getting engaged but them. For me, it is babies.

My husband and I have been trying for a baby for around six months now, but to no avail.

In case you don't remember, I cut hair. It seems everyone who sits in my chair is prego. I have seen quite a few old highschool buddies (much younger than me) come in very pregnant. We always end up talking about the baby. Due dates, names, and then they say,"Oh it was a surprise." or it was an "accidental" pregnancy. They're not even married.

So here's my beef. I'm married and trying and I don't have one. THEY are unmarried and don't even WANT one! I think this is called coveting.

Anyway, the icing on the cake- My older sister stopped taking the pill 3 months after me and she just announced she is pregnant with her third. She admitted it happened before they decided to actively try for a baby.

So I am sad that everyone around me is pregnant with OOPS babies and, after six months, I've got nothin' to show.

Estados de ánimo

Unas veces me siento
como pobre colina
y otras como montaña
de cumbres repetidas.

Unas veces me siento
como un acantilado
y en otras como un cielo
azul pero lejano.

A veces uno es
manantial entre rocas
y otras veces un árbol
con las últimas hojas.

Pero hoy me siento apenas
como laguna insomne
con un embarcadero
ya sin embarcaciones

una laguna verde
inmóvil y paciente
conforme con sus algas
sus musgos y sus peces,
sereno en mi confianza
confiando en que una tarde
te acerques y te mires,
te mires al mirarme.

--M. Benedetti

Two wonderful things have happened. The Office has started up again, and Halo 3 has been released.

The Office started out great. I love it. I will watch them all.

Halo 3 is even better. I have gone many a'days without eating breakfast, for fear the convenent scum will beat me. Also, I play online with a headset. It seems I'm one of the few girls on there. Best of all, I beat them. You should all buy it and play with me.
