There’s much more to my purple collection than I wrote about in the first post. Did I mention my bed sheets? Bath towels? Paint? Teddy Bears? Key ring? Bamboo knitting? And so it goes.
If I am out shopping I am often drawn to any purple items in the shops – I don’t buy anything and everything, but if it is an item that I am likely to choose, I may just take it to the checkout and pay!
Also, I often have purple hair – not all my locks are in purple, but I manage to colour my hair purple, usually on the right-hand side. I find it amusing how many people comment. In the most amazing random places, it happens. Yesterday as I was leaving the Brisbane City Hall after a Seniors Christmas Party Event, one of the male staff members stopped me to say he loved my hair. I have been in a hospital (visiting a friend) and two doctors stopped me to comment positively on my hair colour.
Certainly, many ladies with coloured hair stop me, to comment about my hair colour. I find it amusing. It’s one way to get noticed – in a positive sense!
Purple pens, purple USB sticks, manilla folders, notebook covers, and pens, (oh, and I use a fountain pen with purple ink too!) I have a laugh when I look around my unit and see the purple items. It’s random. Fun.
I find it all amusing really. I am often chuffed when someone gives me a gift – and that it is purple. It doesn’t happen all the time – but when I do we usually laugh, and love it that folk know about my “addiction”.
The New Movie – The Color Purple
My memory doesn’t serve me well sometimes, and I have tried to recollect ever seeing the movie by this name, way back in 1985. I can recall some details, but not sure if I saw the movie with Oprah Winfrey, but I have learned that there is a “remake” of the movie called “The Color Purple” due out in January 2024. I do plan to see it when in comes to a a theatre near me – but I have watched the trailer and it looks very brutal to me. Not the sort of movie that I am keen on, but I will make sure I see it.
I certainly know about the brutality of those days in American History.
I wonder if the new movie will be as successful as the one released in 1985?
Here is a trailer of the new movie.
Have you any comment on the movie/s?
