I know this is random, but . . .

...that's how I think. Randomly.

This morning I opened a new pack of sponges (I think I've already explained how much joy this brings me?) and noticed that they were purple and orange. Purple and orange, thought I. The two unrhymable colors. Funny.

But then I considered it a wee bit more, and I couldn't think of a rhyme (either an English word or a widely accepted import) for magenta, aqua, burgundy, or chartreuse either. Hum. What am I missing? Is my vocabulary just flabby or are these truly unrhymable?

Anyway, that was my linguistic pondering for the day.

In other news: I have 43 students signed up for the fall. Have I gone mad?!
