Or would be nice - sort of important. smile

Nonu Fri 10-May-13 16:48:43

what about purple , regal .


Ana Fri 10-May-13 16:52:11

I think that might be too similar to the colour they already use, Nonu. We need one which really stands out! Green or red probably best.

Nonu Fri 10-May-13 17:24:34

Oh , okay .

cupcakeI"m indulging at the moment

j08 Fri 10-May-13 19:38:55

shock ! I thought about purple while I was hoovering upstairs a little while back! #greatminds

Yes. Royal. Appropriate.

j08 Fri 10-May-13 19:39:40

I mean, purple is royal.

j08 Fri 10-May-13 19:40:01

and we're a bunch of old queens

Ana Fri 10-May-13 19:48:13

But it's nearly purple already! It would have to be a very bright purple...


j08 Fri 10-May-13 19:50:55


It's pink (on the name/date/time lines) And the purple wouldn't be anywhere near that. It would have black either side of it.

Shall I put a shout out for Geraldine?

Some people (mainly male) are red/green colour blind.
Could this be sex discrimination?

j08 Fri 10-May-13 20:33:43

Oh yes! My son is. He can't see holly berries on the bush.

My son ran the London Marathon and told us he was wearing a yellow t shirt. I spent all day scouring the TV for him in his yellow shirt. When I saw the photos he was wearing green.........he is also colour blind! hmm

Nonu Sat 11-May-13 12:42:41

My sil is also colour blind , creates quite a lot of probs. for him

Sel Sat 11-May-13 13:03:43

Surreal thread grin

Nonu Sat 11-May-13 13:27:33

Big wink reminds me a bit of some of the fun threads we were having at Christmas .

Nice to have a bit of banter .

j08 Sat 11-May-13 14:07:12

I've still got a mother's' day DS made at school when he was five. Picture of his me - with a bright green face. That's when it dawned on us. grin

j08 Sat 11-May-13 14:08:48

Nonu Don't! shock grin

Nonu Sat 11-May-13 14:53:38

Okay , I"ll make nice .


Galen Sat 11-May-13 15:34:09

There is a rare female kind which is blue/yellow colour blind!

Nonu Sat 11-May-13 15:54:08

Galen ?

j08 Sat 11-May-13 16:20:50

I did n' t know that Galen. Seems a shame to not be able to see some colours but I suppose what you've never had...... Son doesn't seem to mind.

Ana Sat 11-May-13 16:29:22

So, we can't have red, green, blue or yellow for the link colour!

Looks like it's gotta be purple then...grin

j08 Sat 11-May-13 17:01:23

Yep! Purple it is. GERALDINE!!!
