Solvang, California is this mock-Danish little village off of Highway 101 that is too idyllic and pleasant to be real. It's kind of like Disneyland for adults (or, really, Disneyland for adults who don't love their children enough to actually take them to Disneyland).
We genuinely couldn't believe one place could be this cheerful and adorkable. Like, you know when Zooey Deschanel gets home, she sets down her half-asian ukulele and takes a huge dump, right? Because no one can be that pleasantly quirky 24/7?
Well, apparently Solvang can. We couldn't find one unnerving scene or sketchy corner in the whole damn Danish town. Apparently, the last time Denmark had any dark fun or gossip floating around Ophelia was found face-down in a river. Floating! Ophelia! Puns! Look Ma, we're quirky too!
Well, for two girls with a color blog we wear a lot of black. A teenaged girl behind the counter at a technicolor ice-cream parlor asked us if we were "drama kids." Because we weren't wearing pastels and we weren't smiling at strangers.
Yep, that's us. Just two goths with a color blog!!
