GREEN AND ME

This post isn't going to be deep, or meaningful, there is no hidden messages or agendas. I love the colour Green. It is my favourite colour. I'm just not sure why it is my favourite colour. Why does anyone even have a favourite colour? Colour isn't a physical thing that you can touch, they don't feel different from one another. I guess it is all to do with what they represent. Everyone associates different colours with different things, so your 'favourite' colour must depend on what, and why, you associate that colour with? Or maybe you just like a colour because it looks pretty? I don't know... I don't know why I am thinking about this at 8am, or at all.

So why do I love the colour green? Why do I feel so drawn to it? It sure makes clothes shopping easier... head straight to whatever is green. It also makes me feel okay for buying Asda Smart Price food (almost). Is it because grass and trees are green? I'm not really an outdoorsy type person, so I don't think so. Is it because when I was 17, there was a girl I really fancied on MySpace and her favourite colour was green? Possibly. Is it because it was also my ex-girlfriend's favourite colour? One of her favourite songs was A Certain Shade of Green by Incubus, and we used to have silly arguments about who was 'greener'? Maybe, but I don't think it was any of those things. I think it started long before I started stalking girls on MySpace (She is still one of my best friends to this day, so sometimes... MySpace stalking pays off!) , and it started long long before I ever had a girlfriend to argue with.

I'm pretty sure that it all started back in 1993... with the Green Power Ranger. Yes, that sounds completely stupid, I know. I was pretty much obsessed with Power Rangers when I was a kid, I used to watch it everyday before school, and after school, and at weekends, and whenever I could. Tommy, the Green Ranger was my out and out favourite. I don't recall having any kind of connection to the colour green in my life before then, but I've been obsessed with it ever since. I don't know if this is actually the reason, maybe it is just a coincidence? Either way, it is a fun game to play. Why is your favourite colour your favourite colour? Answers on a postcard.

In homage to Tommy, the Green Ranger (and later the White Ranger, Red Zeo Ranger, and Black Dino Thunder Ranger) I will be dressing as him for Halloween. I have the most budget outfit planned. It consists of green skinny jeans, a Green Ranger t-shirt, and a crappy Green Ranger mask. I'm going to look rubbish. But I'll be green. And I'll be happy!

  1. My favourite colour is also green, I have no idea why. I didn't like the Power Rangers.
