Blog Guelph: Orangeness Day (almost)

Orange Parka, originally uploaded by kellyhughes1970.

Hello Friday lovers,

I'm jumping the gun here, but given that we don't often post on the weekend, I thought it would be ok to announce Orangeness Day one day early.

You see, it's really supposed to be January 26 - tomorrow. As for it's origins, I believe O.D. is the brainchild (but of course) of the indomitable Sue Richards.
Our keeper of this blog.
Empress of Awesome.
In 2004 she circled January 26 on her Breast of Canada calendar and declared this day to be full of colour. A splash of life in the midst of the monochromatic January.
So there you have it.
Orangeness Day - a day early.

Perhaps Sue might properly tout all it's glory tomorrow, we shall see. But I do know that there is enough Orangeness out there to brighten many a day.
Spot some if you can.

**addendum** I would be seriously, deeply, madly remiss if I neglected to mention Burns Day too. Me Mum would be distressed if I left off mentioning dear old Rabbie. Yes, Rabbie.

The best laid schemes o' Mice an' Men, 
Gang aft agley, 
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain, 
For promis'd joy!
