An important message to all on my important holiday mailing list (if you received Valentine's Day, you'll likely get St. Patrick's Day, etc. etc.): The mail might feature a little dictator decor this month. I went to the post office... Continue reading

Two or three years ago, maybe more, my sister gave me a host of presents that included a "Frog to prince" growth tank, if you will. It's a small plastic container that held a rather large green frog. Instructions detailed... Continue reading

Someone recently texted me asking if I had quit ranting. On here? Apparently for awhile. In real life? Not by a long shot. It's not the Regan way, my friends. Happy holidays! Happy New Year! And, most important, happy Regan... Continue reading

I ran my second half marathon last weekend. I figured two within a month of each other would be a bit much, but was inspired to commit when I ran into friend Carrie Rabinowitz at the Turkey Trot with her... Continue reading

I went to Mass this morning. If I'm up in time, it's a pleasant way to start the day. Today, the church offered gifts of daily reflection books on the the gospel of St. Matthew, the inspiration of our church.... Continue reading

Ever since Starbucks unleashed its stable of seasonal beverages the day after Halloween I'd been musing a post about how every retailer seemed to wordlessly agree on the Nov. 1 holiday onslaught this year. I know Christmas has encroached further... Continue reading

Hello, my loves! Too much, not all good, has happened of late. But the highlights include a smashing Halloween with the whores of Wonderland (as well as my sister in her kick-ass, homemade Operation game costume) in Beantown ... And... Continue reading

There's something going on in the universe. Something in the air. The temperature has shifted from balmy and hurricane hot to downright frigid. The Halloween decorations I've hung with care have gone from hanging horizontal to the ground due to... Continue reading

Driving home a night or two ago a black cat crossed in front of my car rather leisurely. It stopped and sat on the curb staring back at me. "Son of a bitch!" I said, slapping my steering wheel. By... Continue reading

While in New Orleans, I picked up a few CDs from street bands I really liked. One was kind of an old-time jazz band. Another was two women, Dorise & Tanya, who play guitar and violin. They kick ass. They... Continue reading

Attended David Sedaris' Charlotte appearance tonight with dear friend Alison Woo. Weeks ago my dad had forwarded me info for free tickets to the event. I was in Boston and not entirely motivated. When Woo messaged me a day or... Continue reading

It's nearly 2 a.m. and I'm abed, sipping apple cider tea (delicious!) and listening to some of my favorite music, which is wafting softly from my computer speakers. God bless technology. I ran 10 miles tonight - first time in... Continue reading

It seems as if the past few weeks have been an unending stretch of gathering information like berries in a basket. One here, one there, a few spill out here, a few are full of fungus over there. Today was... Continue reading

I'm a situationally shy person. Does that make sense? To me it does. I went on a date with someone the other night - a guy I met at a party of some mutual friends. In pre-date discussions (we're girls!... Continue reading

I read a Facebook status today that paraphrased the old analogy of pumpkins and salvation - that God scoops out our yucky insides, carves a grin on our faces and pops his own light inside us to shine to the... Continue reading

The air is cool and crisp outside. I lie in my bed, my hair smelling of Pantene, fall nights and the crackling ashes of an outdoor fire pit. It is nights like these I'm most thankful for the friends I've... Continue reading

Today's the last day of my Boston tour. And while I'm still busy sitting on my luggage trying to zip it closed, I thought I'd take a break to reflect on the past two weeks. People always told me if... Continue reading

From Wikipedia (and found while researching the histories of the various islands in and around Boston, including the Brewster islands): "Elder William Brewster (c. 1560 or 1566 – April 10, 1644) was a Pilgrim colonist leader and preacher born in... Continue reading

Ahhh, boLoco, it's been far too long since we spent time together. You have the tastiest burrito bowls I've ever had. I love you. Especially while sitting curbside, inside people-watching across from the Boston Common. Yummy, yummy, yummy. Sent from... Continue reading

So... This view kind of beats the greenway when it comes to running. Although it's hot up here (seems I can't escape it) and the roads are as bad as you've heard which means sidewalks and bridge access is interesting.... Continue reading

Can you believe that shit? That it's September? Holy crap. I had a friend recently say, "I had such high hopes for this year. And it was shit. It was just stagnant. Last year was too. Hell, the last five... Continue reading

Had to post quickly to relate something I saw this morning. Have begun my half marathon training. We'll see how far it gets me. This week was pretty solid but I'm sore and weird things hurt. I headed out too... Continue reading

Wasn't thinking tonight when I downed approximately a liter of Diet Coke with a friend while picking at crepes in NoDa. This won't help my efforts to get my sleep schedule back to normal. Clearly. Song I can't get out... Continue reading
