Love is pink (and other colors)

Your Heart Is Pink

In relationships, you like to play innocent – even though you aren’t.
Each time you fall in love, it’s like falling for the first time.Your flirting style: CoyYour lucky first date: Picnic in the parkYour dream lover: Is both caring and dominantWhat you bring to relationships: Romance

What Color Heart Do You Have?

My friend Shiva’s heart was orange, and I thought that was what I was going to get. Or is this more like me?


In related news, I got really affected when I found out that some colors in the Crayola 64 set I grew up with have been laid to rest. Some colors were just renamed (Indian Red became Chestnut – I can remember exactly what Indian Red looks like), but other colors were just killed and completely different shades put in their stead.

Killed
Green Blue
Orange Red
Orange Yellow
Violet Blue
Maize
Lemon Yellow
Blue Gray
Raw Umber

Added 
Cerulean
Vivid Tangerine
Jungle Green
Fuchsia
Dandelion
Teal Blue
Royal Purple
Wild Strawberry

A coloring book without Lemon Yellow for the sun just makes me sad. And no Maize, or Blue Grey, and no arguments as to the difference between Orange Yellow and Yellow Orange. Eventually, they also killed Thistle, which was a beautiful color.

And now apparently they have shades like ‘Inch Worm’ and ‘Banana Mania’ and ‘Macaroni and Cheese’ and you begin to wonder what state our children are in.
