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).
