A couple of days ago, Becky posted an entry on her blog that was an homage to the color red—my favorite, color, for those who don’t know me. It was, well, a meme (which sounds like something your cat might throw up, doesn’t it?); someone gives you a color, you list ten things of that color that you love.
What color did I get? Yellow.
After thinking about this for two days, I realize that for the most part, I do not like the color yellow. (I hesitate to say I hate yellow, because I do in fact have one yellow shirt. I do not think it flatters me.) The best thing about yellow, a primary color, is that when you mix it with red you get orange, and when you mix it with blue you get green. Yellow is not really a color that stands well on its own.
So, while I will come far, far short of ten things I love that are yellow, here are a few things that I can think of that I at least sort of like (and if you want me to pick a color for you, just leave a comment; I can assure you it will be a color other than yellow). Some of these pictures, if you click, will take you to larger versions on Flickr:
Sunsets in Hawaii.
The pineapple garnish on an umbrella drink.
Packages in gold lamé.
The Chihuly trellises at the Garden.
Of course, what a friend we have in cheeses.
Oh hey, wait, I’m actually going to get to ten. So, though I don’t really love it, the aforementioned, unflattering shirt.
