On colors


Discussing the fact that blue is my least-favorite color…

Him: “I don’t care what you say.  Blue is awesome, perfect for songs.  It’s the only shade of color that on one side of the spectrum represents extreme happiness (blue skies), and the other, deep pain (having the blues, midnight blue).”

Me: “What about yellow.  Sunshine, and jaundice.”

    i told my best friend that i made a new blog friend and that she should check out your blog. but once she sees that you don’t like blue, she may not want to be friends with you. blue is her favorite color.

    then again, maybe she’ll see it as there being more blue things in the world for her since you are shunning them.

    Hmmm…I’ve never really chosen a favorite color, but I think if you based it off of my clothing, it’d be blue. I might go paint my movie collection shelf blue as well, just for you, Annie. 8)

    hey – I’ve had jaundice too…i felt better thinking that I was “golden” rather than yellow…I wonder if Coldplay was thinking of jaundice when they wrote that song.
