ETA: Ok, as there is objection to the wording, how about the poll as it is down there is first of all only a way of determining the DESIGN of the badge? Vote again if that changes your opinion. Wording to be decided later.
And as for text – if we need a new adjective as an alternative to deRAnged, then you can find inspiration here. If possible not too many letters otherwise the word will not fit on the badge. (Looking at small badges 25mm size here – I am not really keen on wearing a saucer-size rosetta on my boob 😉 as much as I want to meet my fellow well-wishers…)
Day 1 of the new era. After checking last night’s SD outfit and replying to all blog comments I was at a serious loose end.
TC+1. So much time. #LooseEnds

Yeah, when I am posting sweet nothings on Twitter it is really serious…
To distract myself from the heartache (…), I started researching button badge makers. And then I started designing buttons. Because we really need some discreet way of recognising each other in the future. Really, all this clandestine walking past each other while being sure that we have spotted a fellow sufferer of Armitagitis… Silly. I mean, *I* have a brilliant bag with Robert Hermitage’s face plastered all over it, so *you* might spot me. But how can *I* spot you? Save the silly beard idea (really, Richard, that’s a no-go. I don’t even like a beard on you, never mind on myself…), or militaristic uniforms, the only way forward seems to be removable insignia – something unobtrusive to outsiders. Yet recognisable by insiders. A little badge that only gives away that we are part of the RArmy to those with inside knowledge .
So I rustled up three options. And I am asking you to tell me what you think. Which one do you prefer? Which one is classy yet clear? Which one would *you* wear among the unsuspecting public without feeling like a complete loon? Click option 4 if you want a different combination of design and text and leave a comment beside option 4 detailing what you would like, i.e. “design of option 1 with text of option 3”.
Oh, heck, and you can of course also leave me a comment telling me that this is a stupid idea *ggg*.
Meanwhile I continue researching cheapest badge makers. Let’s get this thing on the road! Because BOFA is happening SOON and we need to be ready with our secret
handshake insignia until then, and that includes me sending the badges to all corners of the world…
