You are right, Animae. I even think the sun is annoyed with the solar system.

Or maybe Sol is annoyed with the Orange Ogre. Everybody batten down the hatches for a perfect solar storm.

Animae and Freya, do you mean the Frump in the White House.....I can see him being referred to as the Orange Ogre. But have you both looked at the could also call the Frump in the White House ...the tangerine mop.

Poor Sun ....Old Sol is expressing outrage.
