olive is the greatest color ever


Actually, I’m just contractually obligated to say that because I’m Greek.  It’s in the handbook they give even us halfies shortly after birth.

But no, it is such a fantastic color, particularly for us brunettes… bonus points if you have brown eyes!  I still have this weird complex over being dark-haired and dark-eyed, as if I have to struggle through the injustices of not being blonde-haired and light-eyed.  Actually it’s much more likely that I’m just jealous that I don’t look like my mama.  Regardless, this is our moment brunettes, for I swear to the gods of olive oil it works wonders and happens to be everywhere right now.  Go get yourself something olivey and be proud that you wear it best!

Okay, enough of color coordination for the insane.


I’m beginning to get irrationally upset when I see people walking about on their two feet.  Do they not even realize that this very essential act could be taken away at any moment??  Does Rachel Bilson, jumping over cars in that ridiculous ice cream commercial not realize how cruel she is being to me?  That just to walk around I need a foamy, gigantic bootshoe?

Does she not even care?  (She does not.)

Wow, sorry.  I guess I’m having left shoe withdrawal.  Thank you for listening.  I think that was a healthy, honest moment we just had together.  You can commence your normal, non insane life now.
