Kelly Green

I was driving to work this morning when I saw a girl crossing the street. She was wearing a black tank top, black pants, and she had a kelly green sweater tied around her waist. The first thought in my head was, "That's a great ensemble."

Then I stopped. Kelly green's been around for the longest time, it's not like I haven't seen that shade before. So how come I've only admired it now? Is it because of the magazine article I read not too long ago that kelly green is the "in" color now? Man, modern media has really gotten to me. Damn those glossies.

Actually, I'm cancelling most of the magazine subscriptions, save for the following:
1. Fitness
2. Outside (haven't actually subscribed yet, but I will)
3. Real Simple (I think mine already expired, but I probably will re-subscribe)

So, no more of these:
1. In Style
2. Shop
3. Los Angeles
4. Jane
5. Lucky

Don't get me wrong, they're good magazines. But, for example, I have no desire to read about tank tops that cost $200 and upwards. If I get into a mood, maybe I'll grab a copy from the local drugstore, but I don't want to be reminded every month of how ridiculous some of these prices are. And they make it look so enticing, so sometimes temptation reels me in! They're evil!
