color me happy...just don't color me purple!

what's your favorite color?
my favorite color has been green for as long as i can remember......my birthstone is green....the green crayon in a box of 8 is my favorite one..... when i was little i wanted to be the little green candyland fellow......
i own four pairs of green shoes.....cute ones for dressy occassions, like church, nice green sandals, some walmart flip flops, and green crocs......green is good.....i have three green purses....one i made out of baby overalls, one is crocheted, one is shrunken wool...what is it called when you knit something and then shrink it? right, that....my mom gave me that one......

and then there is orange......orange has been a favorite in the last ten years....i think i chose to love it when my husband proclaimed it his favorite..... i don't recall him ever having a favorite color prior to having children who cared about such things and pinned him down on it......so....orange.....over time i grow fonder and fonder of it.......i have orange mary janes, orange nikes, orange crocs, orange flipflops, and orange clogs that i painted myself a year and a halfish ago...... so that's five pairs of orange shoes....just one orange purse...but it is shaped like a watering can, so that earns me groovy bonus points, certainly.......

and then there is pink....i love pink....light pink, dark pink, bright pink.......all pinks......

growing up, i think that everyone in my whole life had blue as a favorite color......i like blue .....

purple is about the only color i don't love....and i've actually tried to love it lately.....wore a purple tshirt to bed last night, even! ......i try to appreciate it.......one of my favorite paintings i've done was becuase allison challenged me to find my inner purple........i can like purple just for the joy of grape juice....... in the last couple years i've started drinking grape juice again because my dad told me that it is full of healthiness because of that dark purpliness.......

so, i took a test.......and lo and behold, what does it say?
PURPLE is your color.
Spontaneity is the key to your existence. Quick-witted with a flair for originality, you enjoy situations that allow you to explore your creativity. Comparatively conservative, you appreciate beautiful surroundings, especially if they’re found in nature. Your relaxed and self-assured personality allows you to work well with others. Surprisingly enough, your unique and unusual tastes don’t prevent you from being comfortable among your more conservative peers.

I can't be purple! ....a bit of that sounds like me, but some of it NOT at all.......so some of those questions were iffy......i decided i needed to take it again and really think about my answers.......and.....
whew!
RED is your color.
You boast incredible willpower and are capable of overcoming obstacles that would normally leave others shaking in their boots. You have a penchant for colorful environments and often impress others with your energetic bursts of energy. Your interests in many areas of life often leave you scattered, but when you focus you can accomplish anything you put your mind to.

whew! i'd much rather be red! .....and some of that red stuff DOES sound like me......
what's your color?
