Son of Rant IV, Great-Great-Grandson of Rant, Rant 5 in 5D OR The Rant Strikes Back, Again and Again.

Welcome to the Gaggle of Old Cronies!

If you just want to rant unchallenged, be my guest. No need to worry about logic. Everybody needs a good vent now and again. So go ahead, tell it like you see it. Even if it makes no sense. Who cares? In the privacy of a discussion thread let it all out and walk away a happier person, free from that annoying annoyance that once bogged you down.

Only two rules:

1) Do not mention anyone's name who you know is a poster on Amazon.

2) Please leave religious and political rants out, since they inevitably lead to arguing.

Since this is our fifth go round of Ranting, the next post will include some of the things that have occurred in the first four rounds of ranting. Don't be alarmed if it all sounds like nonsense. It is! But just ask. We'll be happy to explain. :)

Anna's Rant-O-Rama: Unchallenged Rants! Boldly Carp, So Geese! Stelvin Closures, 3G and Camera included. Now with 50% more Cherie! Cat and ferret overlords at the ready. Duck quacks on demand.

So geese and seven years ago, behold a great stelvin closure phenomenon was brought forth in this great land. Lo, and unto us was born the Unchallenged Rant. This was a great and benevolent place populated by a vast diverse legion of brilliant philosophers whose valiant cry became, "To boldly crap where so geese have gone before."
So venture forth, oh ye brave ones, and immerse yourselves in
the Answer to the Meaning of Life.

We are the ranters, my friends.
And we'll keep on snarking, to the end
We are the ranters
We are the ranters
No time for down votes
'Cause we are the ranters - of the 'Zon

By Order of the Queen of the Rant Thread

It is hereby decreed:

No Ranter is allowed to feel guilt for any reason. If a Ranter has done something wrong, they are allowed to recognize their mistakes and correct them. However, no Ranter is allowed to feel guilt for something which is not of their own doing.

This includes guilt for any and all medical conditions or illnesses!!!

Hereinafter and forever all Ranters are to give thanks daily for those who support them. They are not to negate the love of these wonderful people by yielding to guilt. All energies are to be used for healing bodies and spirits and for loving others.

This order is put into effect on this twenty-fifth day of the sixth month of the year two thousand and twelve. It shall remain in effect until superseded by order of the Queen.


Boldly Crap! So Geese!

Feb 29, 2012 11:22:14 AM PST
Boldly crap it's a freaking camera

O my God can you see the lenses for a camera. There is a place fir keeping photos. So geese. Really you must be blind if you cant realize it...

First recorded use by Americus Root on Mar 1, 2012 6:38:43 AM PST :
Boldly crap, so geese.

These events officially recorded by Anna Karenina on Mar 9, 2012 10:57:43 AM PST.

Uses Include:
Verily I say unto you, according to prophecy, that your so geese statement has no boldly crap logicality.

Boldly carp! That would be so geese of Amazon to do that

"To boldly crap where so geese have gone before."

"Boldly crap, so geese, you have a sticky beak!"

Pineapple "Actually, I'm Boldy Crap"

Stelvin Closures - screw caps on wine bottles
Uses Include:
What would Stelvin do? (WWSD)

That dress could use a stelvin closure.

I think we should end this meeting with a stelvin closure.

At the end of the funeral they secured the casket with the stelvin closures.

Well if you need closure, stelvin is the best choice.

When Stelvin and I broke up, I needed closure, too.

I accidentally cut my little finger open chopping tomatoes tonight. Fortunately, I keep a good supply of Bactine, Neosporin, and Stelvin closures on hand.

I hate how this bad economy has caused so many Stelvin closures!

Perhaps he needs to apply some stelvin closures to his fingertips to help with typing skills.

Which prophet said that? The Great Stelvin in his seminal work, Closure?

Pass me the boldly crap monitor cleaner! LOL! I didn't have my stelvins closed and spit my so geese coffee all over.

Well, boldly crap, logicality it is so geese that that would happen.

Tally Ho!
Tally, ho! So geese!

As usual, late to the party. I awoke to a clogged Keurig. So I had to gore that out. Now I have coffee and am ready for the Boldly Crap, So Geese Maroon Wars. Tally ho!

Berton - Etymology "Tangie has given us a new word to play with. Apparently Berton was used in a post that was deleted in the Camera on Kindle Fire thread."

A Berton is the opposite of a Stelvin.

Stop being so Berton

You're such a Berton!

That's SO Berton. Not geese of you at all.

I mean, could you get ANY more Berton than that? Boldly crap! I don't think so.

Midnight goats
That's a so geese midnight goats thing to say"

Oh, look at the beautiful bath in my suite!
*Double squeeeee*

Her Majesty has outdone herself this time.

You can't see it in this picture, but both the jacuzzi and the 8' x 8' all glass shower stall with its 6 massaging shower heads are simply fabulous!

Here is my sitting room for lounging and casual entertaining.

Oooooooh! Thank you for the great sheep pen! Matt-Matt loves it and his new room, too! It's perfect for my future farmer!

Posted on Jul 3, 2012 6:07:26 PM PDT
Oh look, the new room is here!

I just got my electricity back! Yay!

Thank you to Everybody for not forgetting me and for the people who texted me. That meant so much to me!


In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:08:16 PM PDT
Yay! I'm glad that you have electricity again! Woohoo!

*nospin* says:
Yeah, Kessa is back.
We all thought it so unfair for you to lose power yet again.
How are the boys?

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:10:35 PM PDT
Thanks, Aimee!

I just lost electricity for 2 weeks, didn't even have it back a week & lost it another 4 days. LOL!

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:11:21 PM PDT
I know, right?! I was expecting to come back & have the new room be on page 100 or something. LOL!

*nospin* says:
Look the dvf is here already.

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:13:57 PM PDT
Well, this time it wasn't just my street, 600,000+ BGE customers lost power. Last night I was over at the maintenance lady's house & the news said that just under 200,000 customers were still without power (I think it was like 197,000).

The boys are good. They weren't happy, but they seem to be happy now. LOL!

In reply to an earlier post on Jul 3, 2012 6:15:15 PM PDT
Wow, they didn't miss any time getting around to DV.
