darkness

(no subject)

Okay, hopefully i misheard this, but while getting up this morning there was a commercial for a jewelry store, which sounded like it ended with "where you can find the perfect ring to help transform your girlfriend into your fiancee." Is it just me or does that sound really wrong? Like you're talking about a pokemon or something inanimate like that. "Yay! I just found the Engagement Ring item! Now i can upgrade my level 27 girlfriend to a level 27 fiancee! Woohoo!" =P

Okay, that's fricking weird.

This morning about 10, 10:15 am, the sky was a very light but very obvious hazy shade of orange. (But the leaves are still green =)

At noon it was maybe still a little orange, but a lot less so. I decided to go to Subway for lunch and while i was walking along i started thinking "something looks very odd, but i can't figure out what." Finally after about half a block (well, about half a mini-block) i realized that all the shadows were _blue_! Not very strongly so, but clearly noticeable when i started looking. Presumably they're not actually blue, they just seem that way in comparison to the light, which is still orange even if i'm not noticing it anymore?

It looks like most of the haze is to the east and south, and you can actually see some blue sky to the north, so if it is smoke in the air it's presumably from the Irvine fire i guess?

On the way home i noticed that it wasn't just the eastern and southern parts of the sky that were smoky/hazy/whatever. It was to the west too, and a fair bit of the north, in fact it was only to the northeast that there was a significant amount of blue sky. It's just that when i was looking around during lunch the west and northwest views were all blocked by buildings :)
