    You're not colour-blind, are you?

    Yes... is it really so hard to see it? From left to right, they almost perfectly match the colour scheme of Pinkie Pie, Lyra, and Princess Cadance.

    Going to McDonald's... Need I say more XD
    Also when ever I'm in the dining room, they have different fruit stuff each day... Apples... Everywhere.
    And my library is enormous, I keep thinking, wow, twilight would love this.
    And then there's the fact that we have hands, and I'm like, Lyra be jelly.

    There's an area called Brabourne Gardens or something in Preston Grange.
    When I used to deliver papers I always passed and area called Ewen Court. (Guess why it reminds me.)
    I always wonder about what could be an MLP game or even put them in other games (if there's a custom characters option I'm online looking for MLP customs. I'm looking at you, Soul Calibur V).

    At work we have a role that shifts between people called 'Batch Upgrade Coordinator' or BUC for short. As I'm the BUC at the moment, I couldn't stop myself from marking on my time-sheet that I spent several hours last week Bucking.

    Dunno if this would be them invading my day, seeing as that pretty much happens wenever I get my laptop out (Which is covered with, among other stickers, MLP stickers, as well as a changng cycle of MLP wallpapers), but I did have a very cool encounter at uni a while back.

    Among my group of friends at uni, there is one guy, who on first glnce seems like your standard rough London teen. But he is much more intelligent than he looks, often drawing our entire clique into fairly intense, but altogether good-natured debates about all sorts of stuff like pilosophy, religion, and so forth. Then one day, I catch him eyeballing the front of my laptop, and I fear the worst.

    "Those are from that My Little Pony thing, right?" he says with a grin. I nod nervously. And what does he say next?"

    He grins from ear to ear and says "F***in' awesome man, those ponies are hardcore!"

    I think there was a dent in the table from how hard my jaw dropped. Turns out he babysits his niece sometimes, and she watches the show, so he watches it with her too. And you know what? He thinks it's a great show! He thought the animation was nice, the characters were really fleshed out, and the morals it had were great for kids. He also thinks the fandom itself is awesome too, being so creative and so dedicated to what they love. It doesn't sound like he's a brony, but he's certainly pro-brony, and it sure was one hell of an ice-breaker between us.

    Quite often when I'm doing a big exam, my brain puts a catchy song on loop and I work to the rhythm of the music. Those are not infrequently from MLP.

    I set the text colours on my work software last week to aquamarine and gold, so now I'm reminded of Lyra all day. :D

    I'm not sure if this is really on topic, but a few weeks ago I was in HMV changing the iPad backgrounds to the BUCK logo (as you do).
    I'm always on the lookout, especially around the time school gets out, because there are some pretty geeky schools where I'm at and as we all know, 87% of bronies are geeks. So, anyway, I was whistling Winter Wrap Up pretty loudly as I walked around trying to find a Foo Fighters album. Then I looked up an one of the cashiers was staring at me, like in disbelief. I wasn't buying anything, and I had to leave to catch my bus, so I gave him a grin and made a "brohoof" sign in the air, which was tentatively returned. I didn't know what to do; I couldn't just walk up to a working cashier (it was a busy day in that HMV) so I just walked out to catch my bus. Ended up having to run for it; dumb missing Foo Fighters album.
    I've never seen the same guy in that HMV. Maybe he quit, or maybe I'm just in when he's not on a shift. But it makes me try extra hard to whistle something pony while out and about.

    Braeburn apples taste horrible. I prefer Gala.

    I still prefer granny smiths, personally.

    And MLP ruined that phrase.
