Rant: Rude Colors Needed

Once upon a time, a married woman and a hormonal teenager got together and decided to make a blog. They laid it out and then tried to decide on colors. What resulted was a rude purple that looks rather like the purple that you see right now.
I recently got all jittery and excited about rude colors such as purple and orange, and began to hope that perhaps there were other blogs that sported equally disgusting colors.
The only blog I found is the blog of this fellow, and, because I am almost sure he doesn't read our blog, I feel safe expressing my admiration for him. He is rather like what I hope to attain; honest, poetic, and courageous.
The only sad thing is that we two sites are alone in our snazziness. What is this fear the rest of you have? Must we be squeaky clean? Are we DOCTORS?
I'm not just fighting white here. These subtle, pale colors, and the easy soft blues and greens and stuff. Those are annoying as well.
LAUNCH OUT, I SAY!!!
I have yet to see pink. We would go with pink, except neither of us matches pink very well. But for your information, pink is not taken. But I know that after this post I will see an influx of pink sites because so many people read my blog and worship my every succulent word.
Selah.

Oh, and while we're on the subject, I'm adding the vivacious Mash to our links. Lives in my home, doesn't especially appreciate comments from people she doesn't know. Unlike us.
She doesn't update often either, but that may be a good thing. KUDOS, MASH! Let'er rip. Raze da roof.

I personally don't like new Crooked (no pun intended) look.
But I gotta give it up to you for coming up with something original and not using a template.

If you're interested in chromotherapy:
Purple: spirtual, passionate, visionary
Orange: happy, courageous, successful
As you know, purple is mixture of violet and red and historically, is a symbol of royalty or high office.
Orange is a mixture of red and yellow. Red tends to stimulate physically, while yellow stimulates mentally; thus orange is doubly stimulating.
Studying Hospitality Mang., they say that fast-food restaurants often choose an orange decor: orange has enough warmth to attract, and it stimulates the appetite as much as red.

Florence, I have some suggestion's for your whole launching out crusade.

Launch Out promotional T-shirt

Launch Out promtional socks

This would, of course, become counter-productive as soon orange and purple will be the new soft blues and greens.
And if that happens, you can take secret pride in the fact that people change the color of their blog in response to this post.
Then you can quietly congraduate yourself for being a munipulative blogger.
How tasty.

Lastly, Florence, stop trying to sound like a nigger.
It doesn' suit you.
