Blue Thursday

Blue is... the colour of my extremities if I spend too much time in the kitchen in the morning (with it getting down to -5 degrees celsius (23 degrees farenheit) outside the inside temperature isn't much warmer. I used to have a kitchen clock which told the temperature as well. And it it somehow more depressing to know it is 2 degrees in the kitchen than just generally think "gosh, its a bit nippy this morning." I was very happy when it broke.)Blue is...One of the gargoyles at The Chamber nightclub on board Explorer of the Seas. I love gargoyles. Can't explain why. Have one sitting halfway up my stairs. Not as big as this fella, obviously... Blue is... Joe's T shirt in this photo taken at Pompeii
Blue is... The ice show on the ship. Can I have that top when you don't want it any more?
Blue is... The sky in Atlantic City
Blue is... Very Gehry
Blue is... Sometimes termed "art" (taken at The NSW Art Gallery) Blue is... a striking way to paint a shop on Carnaby Street
And finally blue is... a very nice contrast with white...

(Suggested soundtrack: Oh, the choices! Maybe some Blue Six, anything released by Blue Note Records, Jennifer Warnes' Famous Blue Raincoat, Andy Bell's Electric Blue or, if you're in a silly mood, Blue (Da Ba Dee) by Eiffel 65!)

Outside the Christchurch Art Gallery back in January 2004.

Glad you like them - was a little worried that people would think I was a smarmy show off posting pictures from round the globe instead of from my house!

You could listen to Blueberry, Very Blue and their song, 'The Mongolian Air Blue', to be listened to while eating Blue Bonnet margarine, applying Blu-Tack to your walls, wearing blue jeans, feeling blue.
