Spin Cycle: The Rambling Begins

I called this blog “The Ramblings of Rachel” because that’s what I do. I ramble when I write and I ramble when I talk, and I love to suddenly switch topics, and occasionally my train of thought jumps the tracks. So it’s a perfect title for this blog.

In retrospect I realize that, while perfect, it’s not a very clever name. I actually realized this the first time I spun for Jen and there was a long list of participants (all of whom I am now hooked on which is no good, no good at all!) and most of them said things like Casey over at Half as Good as You (no matter the origin of that name I'm still a fan), and HeatherPride over at Riding the Short Bus . And there, on the list, sticking out like a sore thumb, was The Ramblings of Rachel. It just didn’t fit in. No "Rachel of A Cleverly Named Blog”. Apparently nobody uses their actual name in the title of their blog except for me. This was a bit of a wake up call.

So I’ve been thinking, what else could I have called it? And a list comes to mind…

The Adventures of Tweedle and Lillibit

Burning Up (and other things one does in Florida)

Tales of a WoW Widow

The Podcast Hunter

Creatures of Habit

An Eggless Life (it occurs to me that most of you aren’t going to get that one since I haven’t done any posts on this. That’s okay though, there are so many mysteries in life, what’s one more?)

Two Toddlers Each Day Keeps my Sanity at Bay

Death by Children's Television

and my favorite:

Planned Spontaneity

All pretty decent, all going unused. You can bet that if I ever start a blog in another life it's going to be wittily titled.

But in the meantime, I'll just keep on rambling.

I personally like your title! I call it the ROR, which in my company means Reservation of Rights, as in I reserve the right to blog about what I want! Planned Spontaneity runs a close second.
I've called myself a wife aggro before, so nothing new there.
You're linked!

Hmmm. I dooooo reserve the right to blog about what I want to. I like it! Well dang it, you've gone and made me feel much better about this. There goes all the angst I was working up! :)

I like your name too and it's alliteration! I will admit, some of those other titles made me chuckle though..Death By Children's Television is right up my alley this week...Yo Gabba Gabba is killing me and giving me nightmares.
