Pink is the New Green

My friends rarely let anything slip by, and I rarely miss an opportunity to truly embarrass myself by sharing with others when they point out how ridiculous and transparent I am.

At lunch today (white spinach pizza that was so garlicky my secretary actually made me stand several feet away to talk to her afterwards), T astutely noted that my blog had suddenly changed colors.  

From green to pink.

Right after I got laid.


I've been messing with the blog colors for a while, trying to find something that said "relationships" without being pink and girly and fluffy.  Strange then, how all of a sudden, my page has become a little pink and girly and fluffy.  A psychologist, or even a color advisor, could have quite a good time with this one.  

I'd like to think that my sudden embrace of all things pink has nothing to do with the fact that I am "seeing" BB again, but maybe it does.  That worries me a bit - pink indicates optimism and hope.  Most importantly, it indicates naivete.  I am trying very hard to have neither optimism or hope about the situation.  I don't think that I am being naieve about this (I hear you snickering), but I've never really done this before, so, clearly, I have no idea what I'm talking about.  And we all know I have no idea what I'm thinking.

That's so funny b/c yesterday I was so tempted to comment on the new pink theme, not sure whether or not to attribute it to BB or an increased level of cynicism or both....I vote for green.

According to my high school English teacher green is the color of hope. I found that out after doing poorly on a pop quiz about The Great Gatsby.
