"To lead apes in hell (1579) was the fancied fate of one who died an old maid."

Pantone Selects Color of the Year for 2008:
"As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic. Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays."
(Color of the Year for 2007 was Chili Pepper.)

You've forever changed how I look at color-matched home accessories.

I'm passing the blame to angelina (and a later commenter, emily). I thought the commenters' reactions were more interesting than the restoration of originally garish color on the statues.
