So ages back, grey_gazania did a colour meme and gave me the colour rainbow. Ages back as in, early May 2011 (final exam time).

Spent today going through most of my inbox; this time I want it to be everything I can get through, including memes and questions and story prompts (eventually).

For now here's the meme:

If you ask, I'll give you a color that reminds me of you, and then you will post with pics or a list of 10 things of that color.

I am not posting 10. I was asked for rainbow, and so I am going to give a whole picspam of (most of) my rainbow items. Be prepared. The first 10 or so were on my body as I saw the comment. Warning for one dog pic.

Left shoelace. Difficult to see in the light, but it's black background with rainbow stars in order (red to purple).

Right shoelace. Straight-up rainbow.

This picture is for the rainbow dress. It's a bit pale in the picture, but it has pastel-y colours and little sun patterns. I really like it. :D Picked it up from Savers!

My hoodie. I wear it often.

My rainbow dog collar, picked up from Pride & Joy in Northampton. I love it and wear it often. Oh! I forgot to take a picture of my leash! Be right back.

Many of the pictures after this will be bad lighting again. But there's the leash, and some of my arm bands, and the other shoelace, and on the right the long rainbow shoelaces (with black) that I have for my tall Docs.

My pride earring--the blur up at the top is rainbow, too, along with the lettering. And, er, they're not really earrings. That one and the flower under my finger are belly rings. The rainbow one with the lesbian (two locked female) sign fell out and was lost. D:

My headband. More rainbow stars!

My chakra ring. My friend from my UU congregation gave it to me.

Two bracelets. One from my grandparents and one that's my friend's. I'm wearing it 'til I see her again.

Bracelet from my friend Eve during my last year of uni.

Rainbow sticker on my door.

Another, a postcard this time. I'm sure I picked it up during high school, during my Gay Straight Alliance time.

The rainbow my father painted above my door when I was 7 and my first-grade teacher told my mother I needed my own space. My father and I both settled on no cloud on the other side. :Þ

My camper made this for me in 2010. (: I love it.

A rainbow jumper my grandmother bought for me in Nepal, I think.

Two rainbow scarves. The one on the left is plain all the way down; the one on the right has two fluffy clouds!

One of my rainbow slippers.

A car-belt-buckle belt from Newbury Comics. Got it when I was in high school.

A purse. One of the buttons came off; someday I'll sew on new ones. When I, uh, learn to sew. My school was more into teaching chainsaws than home ec...

Some rainbow sheets. They're not blaringly rainbow, but it's easier to see in real life.

My Rowe shirt! ♥ I have the rainbow t-shirt and the black hoodie. :D (I love black and white, and rainbow.)

Jojobird bought me this hoodie from one of my favourite shops in Maine, near our cabin.

One of my rainbow legwarmers.

Some of my rainbow socks.

One of my rainbow bandanas.

A sort of ornamental bra type thing.

One pair of my underwear that has rainbows. They're sparkly! :D

A t-shirt. Something like "I was having a good day until you came along".

Another pair of rainbow legwarmers--fluffy! I need to find the other one. Things got moved around as I was changing up where I would keep my clothing/accessories...

Tight legwarmers. Mainly I wear them on my arms.


Leggings. :B Not directly rainbow, but they look pretty rainbow when I put them on.

My big baggy PJ top.

Queen Shelley Sunshine Attiya Latifa the Radioactive Psychedelic Careless Bear.

One of my pillow cases.

The other rainbow pillow case. I have a duvet case that matches this one.

Rainbow duvet cover, my "have a rainbow day" Carebears pillow, and my little blue-and-rainbow fleece blanket. My bed is unmade for Mugz; I messed itup for him when I went off for my dog-sitting, because he prefers it that way when I'm not around.

My rainbow trunk, with assorted rainbow magnets and my so-far-unsorted books. (I failed at my "only a few books" during my congregation's book-swap; I picked up 10. I also adore this trunk. I'd, uh, be a little 'out' at Hogwarts, I think...

A little yarn thing I made with instructions when I was in high school, with little knots and stuff.

A scarf my sister Kristine made. She gave it to me and it decorates my mirror, to make me all happy. (:

Another scarf. One of those summery ones. I don't really know how to wear non-winter scarves...

I'm ridiculous and got a cheap little rainbow baby onesie to put up on my wall. It was over my bed in uni as an odd reminder that I came from something little, and that life would keep on going in cycles...

Rainbow suspenders from lash_larue! (I believe that's the pair. I have two, but one's quite cheap, and Lash gave me the better pair.)

Stud belt. I gave away my extra one.

Another non-winter scarf-like-thing; this one tends to be more like minister's garb. Popular at gay pride, anyway.

Decoration for my little armchair. Beneath that there are the piles of things from England that I still need to go through - decorations and paperwork and random items. Someday soon, hopefully, I'll be able to take a picture of my silly little armchair all clean and ready to seat me.

Even in my goth days, I was more of a rainbow-tinged one. These are my black curtains, which were trimmed with rainbow. They do the trick of keeping the daylight out when I don't want it, at least; I'm not really one for sunlight so much.

My wallet.

A little rainbow heart that goes around in circles and looks pretty with the Christmas lights on.

The poofy rainbow ball and mardi gras beads that the rainbow heart is attached to.

Another rainbow scarf. This one was my tail at gay pride one year.

My rainbow monkey hat. Clover got it for me! :D

My glove/mitten things, from my grandparents.

And that is most of my rainbow, not including things that I have many of or things in my hamper.

That is why I was the Rainbow Queen of Rowe Camp in 2006. :B Rainbow is well and truly my favourite colour. It tends to make grey rainy days better, at least!

Sleepy Kiwi is sleepy. Time to catch my Zzzs.

So many gorgeous rainbows! Your life is filled with so many happy shiny refractions of awesomeness!!!

Awwwr, thank you! Between that and my love of unicorns (I have a unicorn poster up and a unicorn stuffed animal in one of those pictures), I tend to think I'm a real-life version of Rainbow Brite. :B
?elsceetaria on March 19th, 2012 06:50 am (UTC)
You're so very welcome!

Rainbow Brite is awesome (as are you for making that comparison)!
?elsceetaria on March 19th, 2012 06:51 am (UTC)
If you want to give me a color, I'll do the meme. The distraction would be nice.
Kiwi Crocus: Animal || Elephants.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 07:11 am (UTC)
Oh yes of course! ♥

Teal/turquoise, if that works? (Or any sort of blue-with-green colour combination, if you need something a bit less specific, haha.)
?elsceetaria on March 19th, 2012 07:19 am (UTC)
I should be able to make it work. :)

You know, when we met one of the things my sister said was "Kiwi is so awesome, and she loves rainbows!" because Chubby's a super fan of rainbows as well :)

And I'd ask for a color, but... for some reason I'm... scared? :B Or maybe embarrassed. I don't know.
Kiwi Crocus: Seasonal || Silver bell.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 05:19 pm (UTC)
Yes, rainbows! :D And d'awr, your sister is awesome! Next time I'll have to give her an item of rainbow! (I love passing along my rainbow articles. I collect them, so there's a constant flow in and out.)

Does that mean you'd like a colour anyway? Because, well, red came to mind, you Weasley-haired lovely-duck...
Nicki: light up like the sunperoxidepirate on March 19th, 2012 12:40 pm (UTC)
Holymoly that is a lot of rainbow! I love it! (Wish I still had a rainbow icon to use right now, but alas my account is no longer paid...)

Want to give me a color?
Kiwi Crocus: Readwrite || Reading face.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 05:21 pm (UTC)
Yes, definitely a lot of rainbow! And you shall have to suffer most of it! Mwuahahahaha! *Evil Kiwi-cackle and hand rubbing.*

For the moment the colour that came to mind for you was a pale, peaceful blue--or something a bit closer to robin egg blue. But if you need something less specific, any kind of blue will do!
Nickiperoxidepirate on March 19th, 2012 10:08 pm (UTC)
*cracks knuckles* Just wait. I have robin's-egg-to-wedgewood blue things like you have rainbow things. This will be fun!
Kiwi Crocus: Fantasy || Mermaid harem.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 10:09 pm (UTC)
*Grins.* Oh, I'm excited! I clearly picked a good colour!
Gingerrainydaymare on March 19th, 2012 01:58 pm (UTC)
Every time I close my eyes... I see rainbow...

That is truly an impressive collection! I love the pillowcases and duvet cover set, very 70s. XD
Kiwi Crocus: Fantasy || Blue faerie.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 05:22 pm (UTC)
Every time you close your eyes you should see rainbow, at least on my LJ page. :B

Thank you! I've spent much of my life collecting rainbow. :P The pillowcase-and-duvet-sets I got for university. I always had the most colourful room! It was like stepping into Oz. With less corruption and just as many little people.
CaroRulescarorules on March 19th, 2012 02:33 pm (UTC)
OMG rainbow madness!

The hat is sooo cute :)
Kiwi Crocus: Nature || Pink tree contrast.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 05:23 pm (UTC)
Rainbow madness absolutely! :D

D'awr, thank you! Clover will be thrilled to hear that. (:
tt: I can't even think straighttwisted_twister on March 19th, 2012 04:24 pm (UTC)

Did we tell you at DiaCon that we have a dog leash that matches exactly your collar? I think we did! Great collection you have here. If you ever stop loving rainbow, you'll have so much space in your wardrobe...
Kiwi Crocus: Seasonal || Black cat pumpkin.cranky__crocus on March 19th, 2012 05:25 pm (UTC)
Oh, then we have matching leashes, as well! I suppose I could use my leash on my actual dog...but mostly we just let him out with his electric collar. Though perhaps as spring and summer hit us more I shall take him for walks again with his halter.

Ah, I doubt I'll stop loving rainbow. :B I've loved rainbow since I was 7 or earlier, and that's a solid 15 years at least, and rainbow just makes my eyes so happy. I don't always wear it all - mostly for special occasions, like Gay Pride when I turn into Iwik the Rainbow Faerie - but having it all is a comfort.
albalark: Awesomealbalark on March 20th, 2012 01:39 am (UTC)
Holy cow, girl - I think you've cornered the market! Rainbow Kiwi is rainbow-y indeed. ::g::
Kiwi Crocus: Judi || Compact & portable giant.cranky__crocus on March 28th, 2012 05:22 am (UTC)
Teeheehee. I do love me some rainbow. When I was stuck in England, my friend asked another friend (about me), "Can't she just hop on a rainbow and slide over, or something?"

I am a mystical rainbow creature even to my RL friends. :B
