My favorite color is blue. Always has. I used to like blue only, and other colors not. But now I like red, if it's like "fire engine red" or "Chinese red" (i guess vermillion). I dont particularly like yellow, but i dont hate it. I also love dark dark greens. I do like emerald colors, or dark green jade. Within blue, i tend to like the darker shades. Cobalt blue is probably my most favorite shade of blue. In clothing I tend to head towards the dark colors. For instance, my brother likes Hawaiian style shirts. So do I, but if I get them, i will head for the more somber tones and subdued colors. My twin likes the bright colors. However, the flashiest shirts I have do have reds and oranges, but for me, they have to have a background of a darker color, and the bright colors can't dominate. As for colors I dont particularly like, yellowish browns, and greens are ugly. I have a shirt that is brown, but it's brown brown. We call the yellow greens "Baby-shit green". _____________________________________ "Courtesy is the KY Jelly of social intercourse"
