heh
so, I did pick my color before wikipedia, and, I know the color due to which kind of Chartreuse Liquor I drink, which apparently makes me a web user.

Re: heh
I'll have to check out the liquor - it sounds delicious. :)

It is. It's an incredibly complex flavour. I usually drink it neat, but have served it to great effect in place of vermouth in a gin martini.

The green (original) chartreuse is the best-- the yellow is a bit sweet for my tastes.

from wikipedia - A Crayola crayon named Chartreuse was created in 1972, but it was the incorrect color, a red-orange shade. It was renamed Atomic Tangerine in 1990 - the one I labeled yellow-orangish.

The reddish-pink is what I had in mind, I think, but I still blame Crayola. ;)

Am I the only one who used an old-fashioned physical dictionary to look up the definition?
I bet I am.

:)

(Not that I had any clue what the color was before looking it up.)

Really, I'd say it's between greenish and yellow-greenish.
