Thursdays Totally  Informal Transglobal Challenge for February 14, 2008 - Simply Red

Thursday's Totally Informal Transglobal Challenge for February 14, 2008 - "Simply Red"

It's fitting that I should use this red scarf for this Valentine's Day Challenge since I bought it to wear at another very special Valentine's Day event six years ago. That was back when I used to spend my winters in San Francisco, and, of course, finding interesting things to do in that City by the Bay was never a problem. One of the most memorable was my seeing Eve Ensler, the originator of The Vagina Monologues, perform it live with her friends at San Francisco's Masonic Auditorium on February 14, 2002. Everyone who attended was encouraged to dress in red. I bought this scarf--the reddest piece of clothing I'd ever seen--at an Indian store in my neighborhood in the Mission. When I read that today's Challenge was "Simply Red," this scarf came to mind. I guess you can see why.
