Yes! The blog has a new name, a new look and ... that's about it for now! The www.RegansRants.com address still works and the information in your web browers tab will still read that this still is the Ranting and Raving blog - some things never die, I guess.
Why the change when I'm still so blustery? It just seemed like time. It seemed ridiculous to continue to keep my name in the title of my blog and hopefully this will be the start of something new in an old, familiar venue.
Read a good Irish saying recently: "You'll never plow a field by turning it over in your mind."
How true! A lesson Regan needs to learn.
Well, week one of "retirement" down. It's boring as hell actually, even with tons to do. It's a bit sad that today was my first day picking up my community pool pass this season. I was rather taken aback to discover that instead of the small, laminated tags I've grown accustomed to in the past (remember the really old ones with the screwy pins on them that always stuck to your suit? What barbaric days those were!) these "passes" are instead red, white and blue rubber wristbands - such has have been popularized since the yellow LIVESTRONG Lance Armstrong Foundation bands. These instead are inscribed with the community and year. How trendy of our pool! I kept expecting for the "adult swim" announcements to be accompanied by public urging to friend the pool on Facebook or Twitter.
Of course, much like the badges, no one actually WEARS the wristbands. What's the point in that? Who would ever look that ridiculous to actually wear a pool pass in any form, right? Ah, I'm such a chronic rule-follower. It really is problematic.
I must run and remove my mascara before I rub it anymore all over my face. The after-dark allergies have set in and my body is revolting. Must run. More soon. rmw
