Writer's Block: Color me curious

If you were a crayon, what color would you be, and why? What color would your ideal mate be, and why?

I don't think I actually liked the color, but I always thought the name "Razzle Dazzle Rose" was the best Crayola name ever. It's a neon pink, but not a screamin' pink....it's a little more sedated, a little duller, but still quite bright. I mean, if you ever see a box of the florescent Crayolas, take a peek. Razzle Dazzle Rose just doesn't burn your eyes like "Shocking Pink" or "Outrageous Orange".

It suits me because I like things bright and colorful, but not overpowering. Like, I paint the walls of my room lime green, because I like bright colors...but I wouldn't be likely to buy Maya textiles because I think the colors they choose are just too much, especially when put next to each other on a single garment.   "Razzle Dazzle Rose" looks really bright when you look at the wax itself, but when used on paper the color is much closer to the shade used for the crayon's paper wrapper.


As for an ideal mate, who knows?  I don't even know if I'd want a color that complemented me or stood out in stark contrast.  So let's not dwell on that question for now.
