I've been battling the flu the last few days so forgive me if I sound a little out of it. On the other hand, being sick means I've been eating a lot of citrus fruit to help stave off anything worse. Which brings me to the topic at hand:
See what I did there?
To be honest, I'm only eating the normal sorts of oranges, but I will say there has been an up tick about the shade of this particular color of fruit due to this clip of Project Runway on You Tube:
And then Tumblr exploded with the Blood Orange Meme.
I could go on.
But I'm sick, so I won't. However, as funny as as the meme is, yes there is a difference in actual red vs blood orange, but I'm just doing my part to spread amusement.
On a different note - how good are YOU at distinguishing color? Try this test out and see what your score is:
I did score a perfect, but I've got years of sewing experience - ask anyone who sews how much fun it is to separate thread colors that have shades like: Bright Red, Orange Red, Dark Orange Red, Light Red Orange, Very Light Red, Peach, Crimson - all for the same project. >_<
