Kickin’ It Old Skool – Color Meme

Today’s KIOS (Kickin’ It Old Skool) prompt is sharing color memes.  Here are mine:

[ RED ]

  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of red?  Rubies
  2. Closest red thing to you? Christmas decorations
  3. What is the last thing that made you angry?  Discrimination of any kind makes my blood boil and makes me want to be an activist.
  4. Are you a fan of romance?  Not unless there’s a back story
  5. Do you have a temper?  I can have, but it doesn’t last long and I’m not one to lash out…I take time to consider and understand.


  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of green? Leaves and it’s my favorite color
  2. Closest green thing to you? The cover of a sketch book I’m going to start soon.

  5. Are you a lucky person? I wish I was, sigh…


  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of purple? Oh! no! a Purple dinosaur! 
  2. Closest purple thing to you? A pen…I love to write with different colored ink.
  3. Do you like being treated like royalty? A bit but I think it would be hard to be the focus too…I
  4. Do you like mysterious things? I love to read mysteries, but I don’t like mysterious people–I like to know and trust people.
  5. Are you intuitive? Yes, I believe I am very intuitive…I wished I paid more attention to my intuition for myself.

[ BLUE ]

  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of blue?  The sky, the brilliant blue ocean.
  2. Closest blue thing to you?  Unfortunately some really ugly sailboat wallpaper that I need to take down soon–at my mom’s…
  3. Are you good at calming people down?  As long as I’m not freaked out too.  But I think I am…one of my friends calls me the Senator because I am the”sober, second thought” (which apparently is why the Senate was created–because our PM at the time would get drunk and make decisions with his cabinet)…I help her see the other side of things when she is upset.
  4. What’s your favourite body of water (i.e. lake, ocean, etc)?  Whichever one I’m closest too.  I love being near water and could not imagine not being close to it.  I’ve been lucky enough to live on the Atlantic Ocean for a while and where I live now, I’m two houses down from the lake in town.
  5. What was the last thing that made you cry?  Oh, the accident that caused my leg injury.  I fell through broken boards on a deck and got my lower leg crushed between two boards.  The pain made me cry, but it was the paramedics having to carry me and having to ride in an ambulance–the first time ever–and I hate having other people do for me…
  6. Are you a logical thinker?  I can certainly be a very logical thinker but I am also very much led by my heart…it depends on the situation…I wish I could use both at the same time.


  1. What’s the first thing you think of when you think of yellow? The sun, flowers.
  2. Closest yellow thing to you?  The front cover of a calendar – 2014 Driving Manitoba–beautiful roads in Manitoba.
  3. What was one of the happiest times of your life?  Christmas as a child, surrounded by friends and family.  And presents…yes presents!
  4. What’s your favourite holiday? Christmas for sure, always has been.  Good cheer, family, bright colors…

  3. What sweet things do you like?  ummm…well, my favorite is peanut butter and chocolate mixed together but a really great dark chocolate truffle is wonderful too!
  4. Are you sensitive? Yes, very much so!  Too much stimulation (visual, auditory, etc.) can really take it out of me.
  5. What is your favourite flower? Ice pink peonies have been my favorite flower for as long as I can remember.
  6. Does you have a crush on someone? I “does” have a crush, for a long, long time–but just because he’s the type of man I’d love to have a relationship with perfect in every way (LOL!)

  2. Closest white thing to you? All the snow on the ground outside??
  3. Do you always try to keep the peace?  Not any longer.  I can accept that people aren’t always going to like what I have to say or believe the same things as me…and that’s really very okay.
  4. Do you like to play in the snow?  Yes, making snow angels is a great feeling…and throwing snowballs for my dog to catch!  oh!  And sledding and snowmobile riding/driving.
