Me and my problem with colors

Since when is this shirt not a green shirt?

Oh well. Happy St. Patrick's Day.

(I guess if you see me you can pinch me.)

By the way, if Janice Dickonson (or Tyra) (or Jai) was looking at this photo, she'd totally be like, "you look like a double amputee."

Kelly, Emily and Steve and I once had a long debate over my infamous pair of pants that Steve and I swore were grey and Emily and Kelly swore they were green, this lead us to conclude that boys and girls see color differently. But this my friend is grey or gray.

PS sorry i flaked on the read, hope it went well.

I totally had this GREEN pair of pants that everyone said was BROWN, yo. Like I'd wear brown pants.

The next time anyone gives you any crap about your shirt, you tell 'em it's hazel. And then tell 'em to eff off.

Erik said...

Jesse, no worries about being a total flake. What I want to know is, what color did DAVID think the pants were?

Erik said...

Colleen, my eyes are totally hazel so I'm so totally all for that plan. I like the idea of saying I'm wearing a hazel shirt. "It might look brown right now, but it changes. Believe me."

Speaking of which, do you remember hypercolor shirts? Maybe you weren't so dorky as me as to actually own one--they were awful, changing colors if you sweat, etc.

Talk about a way to ostracize yourself even more in junior high school.

What color is crumpled in a ball on the floor?

i just watched the first episode of grey's. balled my eyes out.

i'm hooked.

Jesse James said...


Erik calls that show Green's Anatomy.


Erik said...

Jesse, OMG.

Erik said...

Okay, Jesse, I have to comment again because I am still laughing about your comment.

Uma, did you realize that you were posting your comment to me about Grey's anatomy in my "gray shirt" post? Or was that a total coincidence?

Rebecca Gray, are you reading this comment thread, because if you are, I think that it's time for you to comment so that we can really make this comment thread an a totally inclusive gray/grey comment thread.

Uma, back to you, I am so happy you watched Grey's and I cannot wait to dish with you. (However, if anyone wants to dish Grey's on this comment thread, please do not talk about anything storywise that goes beyond episode five of the first season because that's as far as Uma has watched and I don't want anything to be spoiled for her? Got it?)

Has anyone ever noticed how Uma is exacly like Sandra Oh's character on grey's anatomy?

I saw Sandra Oh in Los Feliz once. She was smoking and looked bored. Again, much like Uma.

Erik said...

Okay, first of all, Uma doesn't smoke.

Second of all, YOU SAW SANDRA OH IN LOS FELIZ!??? I am SO jealous.

Third, who is this who saw Sandro Oh in Los Feliz?

And fourth, I have been saying that Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) is so much like Uma for YEARS. (I've been saying it since even before the show debuted!) (Okay, maybe I'm exaggerating, but I've still been saying it for a long time.)

What do you know about Uma?

Other than the fact that she doesn't smoke (which I'm not confirming or denying), and that she's exactly like Sandra Oh's character. Which, I believe, I pointed out first. It's right there in black and white and you trying to prove otherwise is hogwash.

My identity should not validate any of the aforementioned statements.

Erik said...

You did NOT point it out first!

Erik said...

Whoever you are.

Erik said...

Whatever happened to Joe Chandler? He hasn't commented on my blog in a really long time.

Show me where you pointed it out first.

Anyway, another thing about Uma that you don't know is that she doesn't like chocolate because it's dark brown.

(Jesse doesn't like chocolate, but otherwise he's so lovely, so we won't bother him.)

Erik said...

Um, I pointed it out first IN REAL LIFE when I told Uma herself (a year ago!) that she was exactly like Cristina Yang.

I don't think I ever pointed it out on my blog, so you're just going to have to trust me on this one.

I know you're not going to trust me, but I'm going to stick by my guns, and we're going to stale mate.

I love stale mate. I eat stale mate for breakfast.
