Okay, I know you think I’m a whiner because I went off on this guy wearing an orange jacket, sitting right in the middle of a shot I wanted to take during cherry blossom season at Shinjuku Gyōen. I mean, one guy, minding his own business—so what if his head’s inside his phone instead of looking around at the incredible clouds of beauteous pinkitude and noticing that other people (okay, me) might want to take a photo WITHOUT HIM AND HIS ORANGE JACKET smack in the middle of it?
You probably think I’m exaggerating this menace, but the orange jacket pestilence isn’t just real, it’s everywhere…

Why?? I never see these orange jackets around here!
Well, now that I’ve brought your attention to them, (switching to Yoda voice) you will. YOU WILL.
LOL! It’s a conspiracy I tell you! That was cute!
I live to serve (but hope not to dash everyone else’s cherry blossom enjoyment by making them aware of this heinous infestation!)
LOL! You made it fun for some of us!
If I brought even a single smile to your day, my work here is done! Hope you’re having a good one, Darlene ^_^
Aw, how sweet! Thanks! I hope you’re having a great day, too! ^-^ 😀
That is so funny! The orange jacket spotter.
How’s the new book coming along? Yup…..I had to ask. I look forward to reading it.
Thanks for asking about the new book (stabbing self with nearest red ballpoint) Am still revising, revising, revising, but I’ll send it off to my agent by the end of April (or die trying). Your patience and enthusiasm is both saintly and so appreciated!
This was amazing LOL. Friggin orange coats.
Yeah, and did you note how I tastefully refrained from mentioning that orange looks good on exactly NOBODY (unless you’re so wantworthy you could wear a raccoon on your head and people would copy it)? That glow you see, it’s my halo.
Fun…maybe “Orange is the new Black”?? had a blast with anna for a week in Maui..we all got back today/or tomorrow her time! Hope you and your family are doing well!!!

Wow, so glad to hear that Anna is thriving in Tokyo. And I was just in Tokyo for New Year’s – there’s so much fun stuff to do, I’m sure you’ll have a blast!
Thanks, Jonelle! the orange jackets kind of set an interesting contrast the the otherwise lush and subtle colors of the flowers! >
I love how you can see them as a pleasing positive, Phoebe! I ought to start channelling your much kinder viewpoint…
thanks so much for sharing! The red jackets made a nice contrast! >
Arrgh….I feel your aesthetic pain…orange jackets be gone!
You are too funny Jonelle. Yes orange jacket brigade in training were surely cute but annoying I’d imagine
