Today I have been coldy coldgirl who's cold. Complete with slippers, sweatshirt, and wool hat (fedora, really). Still cold.

What's up with the snow? It's spring! Honest!

When I was helping Erica return her belongings to campus today, we encountered a lone orange sitting in a parking space in the staff lot behind the Hillcrest building. I contemplated for a time on whether the pleasure of kicking said orange across the parking lot would be worth losing the sight of the orange in its incongruous setting. Then, however, Erica commented that the orange reminded her of Jessica. Naturally, that made the decision much easier. I couldn't bring myself to kick Jessica across the lot. So the orange sits there still. Unless, of course, some more cruel soul comes along and takes care of the kicking for me. Or eats the orange.

I just had a moment of Daylight-savings panic. But a little bit of quick research revealed that I don't need to worry about it until next week. If I find that the internet lied to me, and I show up at work an hour late tomorrow, I shall be quite put out.

Hmm. This is becoming less brief than I had forseen.

One last thing. In Catch Me If You Can, Christopher Walken plays the father of Leonardo DiCaprio. At one point, someone says to Leonardo DiCaprio's character that he is "looking more and more like (his) father every day". I found this extremely amusing.

The end.

Dear Joanna Q. Smith,
Thank you for not kicking me, I mean the lonely orange, across the parking lot. Actually, it may amuse you to find out that in the infamous "Appeal" I actually threw several oranges around the stage. You see.... I was the mean one, I accidentally dropped my orange and got annoyed with it and threw it off stage... then I tore Genevieve's orange out of her hands and dragged her off stage as she tried to reach out to her orange in vain. After that... a spotlight hit the lone orange as various pieces of orange peels were tossed out... taunting it... The dance ended with my orange rolling past the lone orange.....naked..I mean peeled...

Perhaps what I am trying to tell you is that I am more sadistic to oranges than you may have thought... in fact I have gone so far as to have....EATEN ORANGES ALIVE!!!!!!!

P.S. Perhaps the sequal, "Repeal", should involve a parking lot....and kicking..

P.P.S. You may have noticed I have taken the liberty of giving you a random middle initial....The "Q" stands for Quid.

Great Rolling Oranges!

That was most excellent. "Appeal". Truly a highlight of that whole Artbeat fiasco. :)

Let me just say, you rock. and roll.
