I Got Them #socs Blues

So it’s Friday afternoon, I’m at Starbucks, and the prompt is “blue.” Specifically, the first blue thing I see. Well, I’m wearing a blue shirt. See?

This is one of my Mary-approved shirts to go out in. Most, if not all, of those are various shades of blue. She decided I wear too much blue and bought me a couple of new shirts. One is pink, specifically to be worn on Laetare Sunday and Gaudete Sunday, the two dates in the Catholic calendar where the priest wears pink (officially “rose”) vestments. The other is like a Day-Glo green, which she’s decided she really likes, so I expect more Day-Glo colors in the future. I already have a shirt that can best be described as Department of Transportation orange, so I don’t suppose orange will be another color.

I found my “Blue” playlist. There’s another here, and I’m sure there are a few more.


Stream of Consciousness Saturday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. Now a word about Charmin bathroom tissue. So fluffy, so squeezably soft, it’s irresistable!

Mr. Whipple is played by character actor Dick Wilson, who shows up on “Hogan’s Heroes” all the time.

  1. Blue is definitely your color, but I’m biased. I’ve been told orange is a good color for me to wear, but I prefer to look at blues and greens. That’s why my husband wears a lot of blue. 🙂 Enjoyed the song and the one that came after it by Bachman Turner Overdrive. I’d forgotten all about them!

    1. Mary likes me in blue, says it matches my eyes. I think I look a little washed out, but hey, it’s me.

      That’s my favorite BTO song. I like the moodiness and the jazz feel to it, which is probably why it didn’t go over as well as “You Ain’t Seen Nothin’ Yet” or “Takin’ Care Of Business.”

    1. I was trying to figure out how to use the camera in my MacBook and all of a sudden it took a picture, so I took it as a sign and used it. I’d’ve taken off the headphones, too. It’s my equivalent of resting b*tch face…

    1. Bobby Vinton is a favorite of mine, and he’s done a lot of songs with “blue” in the title: “Blue Velvet,” “Blue On Blue,” “Red Roses For A Blue Lady,” and probably a couple more.
