The Sticky Egg is blue today, and it’s not because I’m sad or cold or have gone a little crazy in Photoshop.
It’s College Colors Day.
The tradition began in 2005 as a way to celebrate the college experience. People across America are encouraged to ‘suit up’ in the colors of their favorite college or university to show their school spirit.
It’s no coincidence that College Colors Day occurs when kids are headed back-to-school — a great excuse to wear those new t-shirts and hoodies you paid way too much for at the university bookstore.
So, I’ll be wearing the goods here in New York City — where a University of Kentucky tee turns a head or two — and the Egg will be as blue as any proud egg…
In the Big Blue Nation.

I had a blue kitchen before blue kitchens were cool.
Obviously, this was many kitchens ago.
I’ve since had a black one, a red one and now a black/stainless combo.
But sitting in this Mexican restaurant in the Orlando airport, I am reminded of what I loved about that bright, saturated cobalt blue look.
Oh…and refried beans. I like that about this place, too.

If you have a few extra pounds on your person, don’t blame yourself.
Blame Benjamin Moore.
A study published in a recent issue of Contract magazine reveals that people who eat in kitchens and dining areas painted red, orange and yellow feel hungrier. The sunnier hues apparently make food more attractive.
To eat less, we need to surround ourselves with blue light and blue tones…or, at the very least, use blue utensils and dishes to help curb our hunger.
Now they tell me!
My entire house is a tribute to the colors red, yellow and orange. They’re even in my bathroom. I have always loved their energy and fire, but now I guess — deep down – I was really just looking for another excuse to eat.
This revelation has its advantages. Now, if I gain a pound or two, it’s not my fault; it’s the yellow paint in my kitchen. And all those red dishes. Or maybe the orange FLOR tiles in the living room. Heck, I even have a red leather love seat.
I’m the victim here!
