I don't know what it is but everywhere I look (at my job) I see office worker after office worker wearing orange. Now, I know that Finkmaster Flash started the whole "orange" thing (even tho he no longer wears it for fear of being perceived as a "dedicated follower of fashion" -- and orange is kinda a rare colour to see MANY people wearing. But, it seems like every day there are more than the average amount of people wearing orange. In fact, being as over-worked as I am, I somehow managed to find the time during my busy work schedule to conduct a head count as to how many people in the office at one time were wearing orange and the final total was 18. That's EIGHTEEN people wearing orange, children. In the SAME DAY!!! Surely, that's the sign of the coming of the beast or something?!?!?!? Have any of you lovely people noticed an increase of "orange wearers" where you work or play? Office workers in particular -- I wanna know what you've seen! Have we reached the end times? Again?

OK, I won't even MENTION that car drive home from Chez Fink today when everyone substituted the word "Puddin'" for other words in book/movie titles i.e. Lady Chatterly's Puddin' or How Stella Got Her Puddin' Back! Suffice it to say that Puddin' Mania is spreading like tapioca on an outhouse door! BUT, when I see my mother (who's favourite flavour of puddin' -- butterscotch -- is picture over there) and she spontaneously breaks out into some sort of beatnik puddin' poetry -- well, Puddin' has conquered the universe. Here's what she recited:
"Puddin' is good, puddin' is great, Puddin' makes you put on weight.
Puddin' in the kitchen, puddin' in the hall, Smear that puddin' all over the wall."

ALL WAS NOT QUIET IN THE BORDEN HOUSE.
The Bordens were a respectable, god-fearing family in Fall River, Massachusetts. Dr. Andrew Borden was what some might call overly frugal. While possessing quite a bit of wealth, Dr. Borden frowned on spending it. New dresses were not bought; old dresses were mended. Mutton stew was to be eaten even if it was several days old. Daughter Lizzie was a great fan of puddin'. And the decree came down that frivolous desserts (especially puddin') were not to be expected in the Borden household.
Daughter Lizzie soon made her displeasure known.

What lips my lips have kissed, and where, and why, I have forgotten, and what arms have lain Under my head till morning; but the rain Is full of ghosts tonight that tap and sigh Upon the glass and listen for reply. And in my heart there stirs a quiet pain For unremembered lads that not again Will turn to me at midnight with a cry. Thus in the winter stands a lonely tree, Nor knows what birds have vanished one by one, Yet know its boughs more silent than before: I cannot say what loves have come and gone, I only know that summer sang in me A little while, that in me sings no more.

And, of course, Quentin Tarantino staged the major maguffin in "Jackie Brown", the heist, inside the largest indoor mall:
But nowhere was the mall celebrated to quite the extent as it was in Kevin Smith's underrated "Mallrats":
What are some of your favourite "Mall Movies"???
