Subject: BS: What colour is your city?
From: Mr Red
Date: 10 Dec 05 - 04:24 AM

I think of Birmingham as brown
Bristol is definitely a bright blue
London is some indistinct grey like the mud of the estuary

not synaesthetic but more prosaic

So I am expecting a suitable c0ulor for hUll as s00n aS j09Hn sees this.

Aberdeen is gray, literally, buildings, pavement, sea, sky are all grey! against all probability at the moment even the light is greyish. It is a very depressing place.
Edinburgh is usually pinkish in the summer,(all the luvvies congregating here for the festivl) but is blue in the winter (blue is the colour of the civic christmas decorations!)
I always feel that glasgow it the colour of Burberry tartan liberally stained with blood.

It's Scotland, it's winter, therefore the colour of the city is black. I didn't write the above, It's just she never bothers to sign in on her cookie to say anything!

London... rainbow... neat!

Moncton, New Brunswick, Canada is Chocolate, being on the "Chocolate River", the once mighty Peticodiac River, where a tidal bore three feet high or more and over a mile wide would roar in and fascinate. A river that teemed with salmon, trout, shad, dolhins, seals, and others. A river that carried a hundred wooden sailing ships a day.

Then, some idiots built a causeway and fucked up the natural order of things. Now it's a few hundred feet of chocolate coloured turbulence, bordered by chocolate colored mud flats that ain't no good fer nothin, a toxic dump and a sewage plant. And the bore is a bore.

But hey, our baseball team is called The Moncton Mudcats, so it was all worthwhile, eh?

Right now I would describe our Twin Towns as white and sparkly. But that's because it is early winter, and the snow is still clean. Come February, it's a much darker place.

The color I think of most when I think of St Paul, for some reason, is a sort of slate, or blue-grey. A stormy spring sky sort of color.

London is green. There are trees all over the place, more parkland that any other comparable city and odd patches of grass all over the place. Even the inner city has houses with gardens, piazzas and aquares are planted with trees, shrubs and flower beds. Offices have flower boxes on the windows and rooftop gardens. Epping Forest starts only a few miles from the City.

Mother Nature puts on her own special Christmas show at this time of the year with just about everything coming into blossom at the same time - it's beautiful. The brilliant red of the Poinciana and Flame trees is contrasted with great slabs of bright yellow from the Wattles. Purple, pink and white Frangipanni not only delight the eye but also dazzle the nose with heavy perfume. Truly, Cairns, Far Noth Queensland, is a kaleidoscope of colour - pity the weather is so bleedin' hot and humid, but then you can't have everything!

Merry Christmas to all

Brussels is John Major underpants grey, except the very centre where the grey is alleviated by a kind of Edwina Curry hot red. All the above of course speckled with ordure brown spots. At the edge, near the forest, where I live the grey gives way to a multitude of shades of green whilst retaining the brown spots.

Peace
