Color me bad

Second Blooming
This week's Spin Cycle, brought to you by Gretchen at Second Blooming, is one of those abstract ones.  Which means that it's a tough one for me because I'm totally not abstract.  It's on color.  Open-ended, anything about color.  Not sure where to go with this one, honestly.  So...we'll go random. 
My favorite color is red.  Love me some red.  Go IU, Go Bama and all that jazz.  Granted, it's funny because my favorite color is red, but pretty much every piece of clothing I wear is black.  So would that make my color black?  And every car I've driven besides my current one was blue.  But I think that was just pure coincidence.  Or just my Dad's preference.  But the rental car I had when I was in my accident was red.  And did you know that police cars target red cars?  And insurance companies have been known to spike rates if you drive a red car? Because it's sportier or something like that.  Weird. 
My favorite color on Aubrey is purple.  Every color is adorable on her, but I particularly love the purple.  I do wish I had a picture to show you but...broken photos...dammit. 
Back in middle school, I loved to wear the mood rings.  You know, those rings that changed color supposedly with your mood?  Why did mine always stay blue?  It meant "happy" but I swear, I totally wasn't always happy.  God knows I wasn't always happy back in middle school. 
T and I are working on painting the house, bit by bit, and that involves picking colors for each room.  I'm drawn to brown/tans.  How boring is that? 
Let's see....
I prefer my wine red.  Dark red.
I prefer my beer black.  Guinness black.
I take my coffee like I take my men.  Strong and black.  (sorry, Airplane!, not racist, it's a movie reference)
What else can I say about color? 
I gotta say.  I'm tapped out.  And yes, I swear that was a movie quote.  From the best of movie of all time, thank you very much. 
Stop by Gretchen's and see what other bloggers have to share about color because I'm sure theirs may 1) be more interesting or 2) make sense.  Or both :-)
Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Haha I totally got the movie reference!!! When I think of color I think of personalities. The reference "colorful people" comes to mind and the many different ways that could describe someone's personality. I find that when people use the word colorful to describe someone they don't mean it as a compliment. Which is sad really because who wouldn't want to be described as colorful?

  2. Shirley, you jest. Don't call me Shirley!
    One of my favorite movies of all time.
    I was a bit stymied by color too. And the creative juices were so not flowing this week.

  3. In a typically Los Angeles weird coincidence, the little girl actress who uttered the famous "strong and black" line is now the mom of one of Jude's friends! Her husband is our Cub Scout Master! And he is not strong and black, btw.

    I think the mood ring stayed blue because you were...cold.

    And you're not boring, but totally enjoyable.
