True Colors

Since no one except you reads blogs on the weekends, let alone a holiday weekend, I think it's as good a time as any to do this silly little bloggy thing I stole from Mommy Needs a Mai Tai a while back.

These are the first things that pop into my mind when I think of...

Pink - John Cougar Mellancamp and my brother-in-law Dan. When Little Pink Houses was popular, Dan used to go around saying, "Paint the mutha pink" (especially while playing Trivial Pursuit).

Gray - A really cool guy I met on Crockett Street recently who said his name was Gray.

Red - My dad. That's his name.

Black - Black fingernails. I'm not sure why.

Orange - "Orange you glad I didn't say yellow?" (an old knock-knock joke).

Brown - Puppies.

Blue - Dusk and dawn. My son used to call those times "blue time." Next time you're outside at dusk or dawn, look at the sky.

Yellow - Mardi Gras (see below).

Green - Mardi Gras (see above and below).

Purple - Mardi Gras (see above).

Hi, I like blogs on the weekend cause I decide not to do any house work on weekends, especially Holiday weekends. I especially love my brilliant daughters Blog.

I might not post, but I'm a weekend reader too. BTW John Cougar Mellancamp has an Aussie connection - we gave him his first ever hit. He was absolutely brilliant in concert too. Is the pink thing to do with Pink Houses or is it a reference to his name?

Of course I read you on the weekends!!!

Peter - Hello there!

Mom - You're a bit impartial I believe. :)

Neil - When Pink Houses was popular, MTV had a contest in which you could win a pink house and the tagline was, "Paint the mother pink."

Lorna - I read you, too. :)

Yeah, I'm a geek.
