11/100

So it seems I could be further behind than I thought, because honestly I didn't try too hard to figure out how many days I had skipped. So let's call a spade a spade and move on? No idea if that phrase applies here. Today's color IS: #913c76! A purple!

So the first thing that immediately came to mind with this color takes us back in time like Ms. Frizzle's class to just a few years ago when a young Catherine was forced to take an 8am class across campus. Even today as an "adult" I can't make it anywhere on time that early. Forgive my flaws, please. But one particular morning, I believe of my sophomore year, I arose in sudden PANIC! It was 8am on the NOSE and I had a TEST that day! I stumbled quickly out of bed, put on the first pair of shorts I could reach to join my sleepy tshirt, threw on my shoes (probably the NERF shoes, may they rest in peace-another story for another time), and power-walked across campus. THAT'S RIGHT. I did NOT run because I made a deal with myself that I would never be that fool sprinting across the quad at ten minutes past the start of class. Now, most people would take that deal to mean that they would never be late; I took it to mean that I just had too much pride and not enough stamina for that kind of physical activity. So, I came streaming into the classroom under glares from my professor, took my test, was not the latest one to class that day, then headed back to my dorm to take a nap and change for the rest of the day. And that's when I looked down to survey what I had already donned that morning and realized I had been sleeping in a purple tshirt and put on purple shorts. I was a grape power-walking across campus. 

So I call this color: a power-walking grape. a grape with purpose. a grape with a punctuality problem.
