Roy G. Biv HNT

As any good kid in school knows, the title is the mnemonic for the colors of the rainbow. Or, in a broader sense, the sequence of hues in the visible spectrum, in order from longest to shortest wavelength. Sir Isaac Newton came up with the colors, originally only five, but adding orange and indigo to come up with seven, which matched the musical notes of a major scale. But, as usual, I've strayed from the path here...

It's only early March, and I know there's at least one more good snowstorm to dump on us, but it's hard not to think of spring. I'll save the overly optimistic "springtime" post for a later, more appropriate date, but let me just say that it's been really nice here this week. I think it started during my symphony days last week, where I was stuck inside all day. No, the trees haven't started budding or anything like that, but the temperatures have been in the mid-50s range since Sunday. After a winter of bitter cold that we had, that's a nice change.

(Stick with me here...I'll get back around to Roy...) In my living room window, which faces due east, I still have a snowflake ornament hanging. I only found that out when I opened the drapes on Sunday to let in the glorious sunshine we've been getting. It's a cheap plastic, but sentimental thing, and it's got six crystal hanging around a larger center crystal. All of which act as prisms, bouncing their miniature rainbows off the walls. I remember back about 3-4 years ago when a particular lady (hi, Samantha!) did a series of HNT pics with the rainbows in her living room. Aha! I could do the same thing (but not look near as good). So I plotted for a Tuesday morning photoshoot...

Well, this is one of those great ideas that just didn't work out. Tuesday morning was slightly overcast, so the mini-spectrums that appeared just weren't that well-defined. The plan was to take a picture of them somewhere on my body, turn it black & white, and then bring out just the rainbow colors. Couldn't even do that. I did learn some things, however, and hopefully sometime in the future I'll give it another attempt. In the meantime, imagine a rainbow on my cheek, just under my eye. It's there. Really!


"Like a flower
Waiting to bloom
Like a light bulb
In a dark room
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

Like the desert waiting for the rain
Like a school kid waiting for the spring
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on

My poor heart
It's been so dark
Since you've been gone
After all your the one who turns me off
You're the only one who can turn me back on

My hi-fi's waiting for a new tune
My glass is waiting for some fresh ice cubes
I'm just sitting here waiting for you
To come on home and turn me on
Turn me on"

"Turn me on"~~Norah Jones


This week's Mystery Guest turns 35 Thursday! She's back to blogging and HNT after being away for far too long. Helpful hints--she's Canadian, she's a photographer, and a lover of winter sports. She'll be revealed Thursday afternoon!
Our Canadian birthday girl is Phynixbell, one of our long lost HNTers from way back when! Be sure to stop by and check out her new digs (and new cars!). She'll be back in the full swing of things soon! And don't forget the birthday wishes!

We're getting some newer participants over at "...the Other HNT", along with some of the more regular ones. Be sure to stop by and leave a comment or two! I know they appreciate it! Oh, yeah--it's NSFW.

I know that many of you only stop by once a week, which is fine, so let me take this opportunity to direct you over to the OsShirt site. New posts have gone up this week (after being neglected for over a year!). And why is it getting started up again? Because the OsShirt (v.3.0) is making the rounds again! Go check it out. If you've never been there, start at the bottom and work your way up to get the full history! I'll keep going until I get it current!

When I got the lawn laid a few years ago, I had to run a sprinkler on it all summer, and got some superb pictures of a rainbow 2 feet above the ground. I made a note where the end was so that if I run out of money I can take up the patio and get the gold.

I'm up, HNT in the library.

I always remember the seven colors because of a children's song with just the colors as the lyrics, which now I can't get out of my head! The order was the other way, however: VIBGYOR.

A few weeks ago I was super sad in my marriage with the love. Why? People, you get it – stuff gets in the way.

I found awesome advice here: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com]adult affairs[/url] Reviews.

It was never about my girl. It was toujours about me. I started checking the web for advice on how to fix my relationship. I ended up landing on this thing: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com/dating-married-online-sites]women looking for married men[/url]

So I decided to meet her. She was Ladna. After a few too wicked vodkas, we go out together– we did what we had to do – she asked for my phone at the end, which I took for a re-invite.

Thankfully there was a super method!!! named: [url=http://www.marriedaffairguide.com/how-to-have-an-affair-married-seeking-affairs]love affair guide[/url]
