New Look

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! (Mainly, I think, because stores purposely forget that Thanksgiving exists.  It’s hard to make a turkey and Puritans sexy or super cute, and while it’s easier with Native Americans, it is not so PC to do so).

In honour of the fall/winter days and the time change that comes with them, I thought I’d switch over to some red velvet.  Upon asking my friend Tombo what he thinks of the new look, our conversation went like this:

Tombo: It’s cozy, and not so bright. Also a bit sinister.
Me: hahaha.  Is that good? And here I was thinking it was more along the lines of Christmas…
Tombo: Haha.  Well, I see red velvet, and I think of Satanic seduction…the tempting side of evil. 😉

Which makes me wonder two things: 1.  What makes you think of the holidays? 2. What do you think of when you see red velvet?

    Hmm, my first thought was actually \”Blue Velvet,\” the creepy David Lynch movie I saw recently. My second thought was red velvet cupcakes. My third thought was that red velvet makes me think of royalty- it seems like something that should be lining a throne. Green velvet is what I associate wth Christmas- when I was little, the Kitty and I had matching green velvet Christmas dresses. So this new design makes you look like Queen Christina!
