Okay...apparently there is a little hard feeling over the fact that Carrie of Candid Carrie lost my Give-away twice!!! ( You heard me you loser!) First, she lost the contest ...Most Memorable Vacation to Karla at Zander & Me and then she lost the Bonnie Hunt Give-away to Mariah at Insane Mama...So, a few snide comments here and there by Carrie and I think, okay... I will take the high road..y'know... be the bigger person kind of thing!

So... she then takes it up a notch....I am left off Friday Foto Finish Fiesta...uh-huh!!!! Can I get a witness? I watch all day as others are listed and NO RONDA...all day!!!

I think..."It's cause of these stupid contests!"
"'s because I am a Democrat!"
"It's 'cause I have bad breath !"
"I have BO...Oh, my God!"
I email her and offer a free puppy ...she loves dogs...that will do it!
She declines..."No puppies...I don't want them!"
OMG...I think..."Carrie doesn't want a puppy! This is serious"
I go to bed depressed... knowing I have fallen from Carrie's Grace!
I wake up this morning...hoping that all is forgiven...but No...I am still not on THE LIST!
No Ronda's Rants anywhere...I have been banished, forgotten, discarded...
Then I hear my Hubby laughing hysterically (like a girl!!! a little girlie man!!)
He never laughs at what I say...I hear crickets after I speak...besides I haven't opened my mouth this morning!
Finally...I say " What in God's Green earth are you laughing at?"
He tries to compose himself.... finally he says... out of breath...
"That Candid Carrie!!"
Maybe , I can buy her a new car!

***BTW...He was laughing at A Engineers Guide to Cats at the bottom of Carrie's blog!

Ok, here's what you have yet ANOTHER giveaway.

Since fate isn't going to let Carrie win.....then you have to rig it!!! Yep, cheat!

(Don't tell Carrie that you cheated though)

Ronda's Rants said...

Okay...that IS cheaper than buying her a car!

Candid Carrie said...

Yes, I am a leaker and a loser. I am so much of a loser that I will add an exrta "o" and be a looser.

I couldn't take it any more. Every time I cut and pasted a link, than damn curser took way more than I intended. The pointy arrow took on a life of its own and kept stealing more than a blogger's link.

I went to start entering the last ten (and now twelve because the popularity is growing at breakneck speeds) but I keep having my arrow take more than I want. Sometimes it tries to steal an entire screen with Bonnie Hunt and everything.

I am a victim of cleptocurser. My college son (when woken up at 5:30 this morning) told me he will call me when he gets up today on his own ambition he will call be and teach me how to do something that scans for viruses.

First I will scan my computer, than him, and lastly me.

Updates will follow in your comment section.

And I fully understand the term "shock and awe" when it comes to war because I really never saw this coming!

Blind sided. That's me. My periphial vision isn't what it used to be so this caught me by surprise.

Candid Carrie said...

I'll be getting coffee and a car?

Thank you Bonnie Hunt. First I typed Bonnie Hung and that would have been in such poor taste. But she wouldn't have minded. She's easy going that way.

Cause she called me. About you.

Ronda's Rants said...

Oh God....Now Carrie and The Hubby aren't speaking to me! Good Morning Everyone!

Candid Carrie said...


Have your husband call me right back, we somehow got disconnect.



Ronda's Rants said...

Stop calling my Hubby you shameless woman!!! And stop making him laugh too! He can only laugh at me...wait that's not what I know what I mean!

Candid Carrie said...

Dear R,

Don't worry, your hubby and I both laugh at you. You haven't lost your touch! Just stop giving him so many opportunities,



Rachel Marie said...

can we all just kiss and make up?????

Candid Carrie said...

kissing right now.

Rachel Marie said...

oh and I love you mom, but props to carrie for the "have your husband call me back, we got disconnected" comment...ooooh, burn!

Candid Carrie said...

Please notice who kissed first.

Ronda's Rants said... are stealing my daughter!!!
Lordy, Lordy woman haven't you got enough children!

RhondaLue said...

Ok this is getting good! (and funny too!)

Rhonda said...

See? This is why I love you both!

Oh, and, would it be bloggy suicide to mention that Carrie didn't win my contest either? Hmmm. Probably not, seeing as how she didn't come by to enter...

But, I DID make it onto the FX4 list....


Lauren said...

Well NOW I know why Carrie doesn't have time to comment on my blog even though she swears she reads me every day! Hmmmm

Elizabeth said...

If Carrie has entered my giveaway, I'll throw her name out!

Mamahut said...

Girls gone crazy I tell ya! Ronda tell Miss Carrie that Mariah is having a cool's gas and a suprise...I hate it when I have surprises with gas...but I entered anyway...maybe we could pull a heist on Mariah??? Wanna help?

Ronda's Rants said...

I don't know...maybe...y'know I tend to be a little chicken! But...Mariah lives in a very cool area...and we could stop off and see Bonnie Hunt while we are there! I don't know I don't remember a chicken sort of a girl with Thelma and Louise!
Elizabeth...I would let her's just not worth the drama...Tee Hee

Karyn said...

Too funny!
