so this is kind of exciting:
there are tornadoes dropping all over between here and Marysville.......and one is showing on doppler just a few miles from me here. and the cell is headed this way.
we never get tornadoes up here...........not sure that it'll make it this far, and in fact doubt it.......but you can hear outside the rumble of the cell, and the rain is getting really hard, with increasing winds..................
*heads to get ruby slippers*

if it sounds close, I'll try to get photos and video to post.

Piehole, the brightness of your screen isn't helping!

I accuse you of wanting to socialize!

Haha! I like shades of green. Sage and loden and leaf. But I probably look better in cherry, wine or pink.

What do you like? And do you look good in it?

I was crushed when I realize what most shades of yellow do to me. :)

My favorite colors to wear are purple and red.

My favorite color is and always will be blue, all different shades and tints and I have been told I look great in lighter blues.

I don't know if I avoid any colors, I may favor some more than others tho.

Oh, I love blue, after greens. :) I don't like to mix them either . . . the only blue-greens I like involve water (or eyes).

Yeah, I'll bet you can rock medium true blues and some lighter blues.

Any shade of blue Eva Longoria would wear. :lol:

I love greens too. I have been told they "bring out my eyes".
I don't wear them often and I don't think I own anything green at the moment.

And for the record, I think Eva Longoria would look great in my one satiny blue dress shirt. :P :P

She WOULD. :lol: She is forever in a medium shade of robin's egg/neon-y/caribbean-blue-with-no-green that is weirdly elusive in stores. I know, because I crave it desperately.

Yep! That's the one. It's pretty much perfect. I really need something in that color. :shock:

Don't go much lighter than that!
