Attention span? What attention span?

I feel like a hummingbird today. I can't focus. I can't keep my mind on one thing. I keep jumping up and down and interrupting myself. I don't know why. I don't have anything special going on or anything special I'm looking forward to. I'd eat nectar if I could find it.

Did you know that the reason why nothing in nature that can be eaten is blue is because blue means poison? Well, that, and yellow. But not all yellow, just yellow animals. Okay, and not even all of them because hamsters and canaries are yellow. But frogs! Those yellow ones? They're poisonous all right. And the blue ones, too. There aren't any natural foods with the color blue. And don't be all, oh what about blueberries, Liz? Because you know they are not blue. They're purple.

Are too.

Are too.

Are TOO.

The reason why I'm on about this is because my colleague and I just went and bought 1200 kronor worth of blue candy. Not natural. They all look toxic and nasty. Sour and licoricey. The chocolates are okay, because they're just WRAPPED in blue. I made her put a box of white sugar marshmallows in too, because everything looked so poisonous.

Once, when I was fairly young, I insisted on dying the mashed potatoes light blue for Easter dinner. I had some idea that the food should all be pastel because Easter colors are pastel. My mother indulged me, god knows why, and no one would eat my pretty mashed potatoes. There was NO CYANIDE in the potatoes, people! It was just food coloring, I swear! I can't remember if I even ate them.

Nowadays, blue food is IN, it's RAD, it's cool. Blue slurpees, blue popsicles, blue candy, for all I know there's blue ketchup.

OHMIGOD! There IS blue ketchup! I just googled it and there it was!

I have to go sit down now and put my head between my knees.

they are too, purple, those nachos! YUM! Now I'm craving them terribly!! I used to munch down on those all the time in Chicago. *adds PURPLE nacho chips to America shopping list*

*boing boing boing*

Naaah! I've seen almost turquoise ones! Must have been an 'own brand' or something. Might've mixed the blue with white corn to tone down that PURPLE-Y look and get a more blue colour! :P

I don't miss crisps at all now. (Not had any since starting Atkins in February.) However, I can have as many pork rind/crackling type things I want. *hee* That does help. :)

*dyes your hair purple* Oops, I meant blue. *heehee*

We stopped having chips in the house in January and have managed to be pretty good about it, except for a couple of slipups involving cheetos from the American store *blush* and I find I don't miss them so much, but I DO crave salty things. We keep weightwatchers popcorn on hand, though, which definitely helps.

The corn IS blue, but I haven't been able to google a good photo to prove it. Not bright blue like delphiniums, but definitely blue.

And, even though blueberries are actually purple (they are), they come out blue, well... like the pancakes. We could ask idahoswede to feed a whole bunch of blueberries to her cute little puppy Sophie, just to check! LOL
