Just Got Back From Over the Rainbow

I had a dream the other night. I'd gone over the rainbow. No, not in a flying house; I couldn't afford first class. I just got blown over it. It wasn't pretty. And when I came down; I wasn't in Oz. There weren't any munchkins. But things had changed.

Little does anyone know but when you actually go over the rainbow; everything on the otherside is rainbow colored.

Now, I understand some things can be quite colorful. Things like crayons or M&Ms or that pathetic early 80s OP beach fashion that was popular. But this was a bit much for me.

Some things I could understand. Take out boxes being colorful...sure. That's fine. Oh, and suitcases? Why not. It would help me from beating up people at the airport because I think they took my black suitcase.

But as I walked around, the color was practically everywhere. Houses suddenly had character. They weren't all beige! That was ok with me as long as I wasn't in the pink one.

But there were times when it was just ridiculous.

I just can't go in for blue roads...I can't even tolerate bluegrass!

And I was too afraid to go up to the second floor of the deparment store for fear of some white suited John Travolta person disco-ing down and trapping me on the escalator until I boogied down or something.

No, things were out of control over the rainbow. What next...dogs and cats?

Yeah...apparently so.

Oh this is a scream! And that escalator...great reference! I can just see a mirror ball dropping down on you-HA! And believe it or not...a neighbouring town has crosswalks painted in this shade of blue!!! I'm guessing you were behind that?-LOL!

Candie Bracci said...

OOOOOOH!Me eyes!LOL

oh! the cat-pants picture is a hoot!
love it

mama-face said...

I heart color. Just not on poodles. Cats; ok. Chicks, double ok.

The blue road is quite odd. Not only for the blue; the arrows. Maybe I'm not awake enough, but the arrows don't even make sense. There are a lot of them too.

Where is that escalator? I'd go up THAT escalator the minute I saw it. :)

Mango Girl said...

Who the hell painted that cats ass?

The poodles are ridiculous!

The escalator? Like an acid trip gone awry.

Great pics!

Dee said...

that is a great post....!

VE said...

subtorp77 - I'm taking the fifth on anything I "might" have influenced or done

candie - You can just imagine Donna Summer belting out "I Feel Loooooove..." to a bumpin' disco beat while going up that escalator, can't you?

moooooog35 - Yes, but they see dead people...

anne - I'm sure the cat was NOT amused...

mama-face - I know, that road wants you to turn left onto that island and run into that stop sign...

mango girl - It's an all-neon color day here. Hope yours is as colorful...

dee - Thanks. Bright colorful posts are popular...

Gladys said...

Hey LOOK a man's face stuck on a pussy!

The Incredible Woody said...

While the colors are fun, poodles are still ridiculous!

Quirkyloon said...

I'm trying to figure out what you googled to come up with these pics? Especially the cat ones.

Scary Dude, just plain scary.

AND...zombies ain't got nuttin' on you! heh heh

VE said...

gladys - Now there's a surprise ;)

incredible woody - I know...and the cost of always getting their hair permed....uggh

quirkyloon - Oh yeah, don't mess with VE. Zombies hate lots of colors. It just makes them angry. Now there's a surprise...

subtorp77 said...

VE, remind me to never***oh man! the colours!***...sorry, where was I? oh yes...to never eat those fuzzy left-overs again!

Bonnie the Boss said...

The stairs? something out of the spy who shagged me? Scary!

Megan said...

Did you get to meet Rainbow Brite?!?!?

Jaime said...

oh those poor animals!

VE said...

subtorp77 - Sort of like eating too many skittles...

bonnie - Like a kalidascope for your feet...

megan - No. She took the wrong bus. Let's just say...she's not that brite...

jaime - They don't know...they're color blind!

Elizabeth said...

Ooooh, I want a purple chick!!

Kurt said...

Won't somebody think of the children!

Ronda Laveen said...

I remember seeing things like that in the 60s and 70s but I didn't think they were real!

Janna said...

Now if they could just make it so dogs and cats would poop bright colorful rainbow turds, it might actually be fun to scoop them up.

You could re-sell it as finger paint!

(Hopefully to someone who lived far, far away.)

ReformingGeek said...

Finally, puppies and rainbows.

Thanks, VE!

I was going along pretty good until I hit the blue road. My eyes started to hurt and then they popped out of my head when I saw the animals. Poor things.

VE said...

elizabeth - Me too. Oh...you mean like a bird...

VE said...

kurt - What children? Who said there were children over the rainbow?

VE said...

ronda - See...you've been there too!

VE said...

janna - This is exactly why I don't finger paint...

VE said...

reforminggeek - Remember, I'm just the messenger...

Brian Miller said...

those poor animals. i'd go blind on that road. i'll stay on this side of the rainbow.

Quickroute said...

Argh! Sunglasses Please! and that stars n' stripes cat is just freaky

VE said...

brian - I turned them all in to PETA...

VE said...

quickroute - I agree...it is freaky.

Dalton J. Fox said...

I kind of want to buy some Ocean Pacific shirts now.

California Girl said...

Great selection of representative photos. I'm wearing so much color this summer I look like a screaming ad for ... popsicles.

lime said...

are you sure this post shouldn't have come after the acid laced woodstock pot?

Mrsupole said...

VE...I think you've been drinking too much of the Kool-Aid and I think every flavor that they make. Yup get off the Kool-Aid bandwagon and start with some chocolate milk and regular milk and some water would be good.

Shaking my head now....very sad about so much Kool-Aid, and oh make sure it is the acid free kind.

God bless.

VE said...

dalton - There is a picture of me in one of those OP shirts. I have a big perm and the darkest tan of my life. No...I'm not going to post it!

VE said...

california girl - Fashions do that sometimes. Cruel, cruel fashions...

VE said...

lime - Ha! It would seem like it wouldn't it? Hadn't even picked up on the theme there...good callout.

VE said...

mrsupole - Yes, I need some milk. They make strawberry, and blueberry and chocolate and... ;)

Maureen said...

Man, I really hope those pets are photoshopped....

VE said...

maureen - I've no idea...I didn't do them though

Perpetual Chocoholic said...

I saw poodle dyed pink just the other day. Weird people. Loved the chicks though. Now, those are cute!

VE said...

perpetual chocoholic - Nobody ever seems to dye rats bright pretty colors, do they?
