Yes, Trobairitz, it turns out that there is a colour for that (I hope all the U's in colour don't offend your US sensibilities).

Why?  Because I found a emotional colour wheel, and thrilled is a colour.
The nerd in me can't stop there.
Since I am colour-blind, I look at thrilled, and I think "" whereas green is the obvious right answer.

But am I green with envy? Tickled pink is closer.  Flushed with pride? That would be redder than pink, but closer still to the truth.

So what is the value of the colour wheel of emotion?  Well, it gets blue right, it seems.  Although, 99.99% of the time the blues lift my spirit.

The prevailing colour sentiment right this minute is white.  Friggin' white.
Really it should be yellow for daffodils.

Oh well, I plan to spend some quality time in the garage this weekend adding some white to my black GTS.  Details to follow.

I really love light blue, wear it all the time, everyone says I look good in blue (my eyes), so I should be calm and relaxed by now. I think that's another reason why I love the open sky and need the open sky to feel peaceful. Let's see...what can I paint blue...

Martha, my mother's eyes were blue. I think blue is my favorite colour too. Can't say that I've ever decorated in blue though. I prefer warmer colours. Right now I like coffee tones indoors.

I am smirking at your falling white stuff . . .

hmmm, i love the passion and energy for red, but it doesn't read that way on this chart? ;) snow white is definitely NOT my friggin colour either... lol.

Awesome David. Thanks for the research on that.

My favorite color is blue followed by purple, not sure what that says about me other than it probably contradicts my sunny always smiling disposition.

If I was in Montreal right now my least favorite color would be 'friggin white' too.

And no - extra u's don't bother me - I was educated in BC. And now I must put my toque on and check to see if the cheque is in the mail.
