11:38 am - The thing is...
The thing is, a freshly painted white floor collects marks and is no longer white.

The thing is, a blank white page does not collect marks fast enough.

The thing is, one pink bedroom wall is fun.

The thing is, one pink Converse and one yellow sneaker are pushing eccentricity (and/or bad eyesight) just a bit too far.

The thing is, smoked Gouda does not taste as filling as Double Gloucester.

The thing is, one person's favorite book does not taste right to everyone.

The thing is, the Dog of the House has a tendency to hide.

The thing is, the Dog of the House has the right idea.

The thing is, it's Wednesday.

The thing is, I wish you a fabulous day. :-)

Those are beauteous things. As I try not to hide ...

You could wear the pink shoe and the yellow shoe, if you also wore some pink & yellow parachute pants, ala the 80s.

But then you would not be your glamourous self, the thing is, we likes you the way you are.

Hurrah for your not hiding, H_P. It is always lovely to see you. :-)

I think I'll avoid the parachute pants, even if glamour is far far beyond my reach. (Esp. as I am wearing two pink Converse sneakers right now.)

Hugs, joy, and good skimming-time! :-)

The Dog of the House is wise.

Have you read Robin McKinley's Chalice?

The Dog of the House, currently lying in front of the fan, thanks you. :-)

(And I haven't read Chalice, no. Am about to start Marie Brennan's In Ashes Lie, for relative values of 'start': to wit, when I get tired of rereading Hugh Johnson or texts connected to the Blank Pages with which I'm struggling. ;-))

Hugs hugs, S! And a good Wednesday!

Now I want some Double Gloucester. But I would settle for smoked Gouda...

The thing is, it isn't just painted white floors that mark up easily--it's white tile too! :shares mop:

I like the shoes! And the cheeses!

I wish you a happy last day before finals, L.

hugs!

White tile cleans up more easily, though. ;-)

A happy end of week and beginning of your true summer, F! We'll talk about lunch and museum soon. :-)

We persevere -- that's the best that can be said for today. And there's always tomorrow. ;-)

Hugs and joy for you, one day past birthday! :-)

I'm so glad the pink wall worked out! I wouldn't mind having a pink room some day.

The deep-raspberry wall benefits from being largely blocked by furniture, of course. ;-) But yes, it's a cheering thing on a thunderstormy day.

Good thoughts, Chase, and continued rest and writing!

You sound just like Eloise!

The thing is, it is possible to wear two mismatched shoes (brown and green, though same model) for nearly two weeks without actually causing a riot (ask me how I know!) or in fact being noticed by most people.

hugs and celebrations for tomorrow being another day.

I smile at you, ALH! And I am careful not to inquire re the two mismatched shoes, because I have an active imagination. :-))

Hugs hugs, and joy, and time to read and rest!
