Oh my goodness, I just mentioned the "asking about colors" portion of this thread to my husband...
... and got a 30-minute lecture on why woman often do see color better than men, since the red and green cone thingees are on the x chromosome and women have two (which is why red/green colorblindness is more common in men) and is a recent adaption by... um... the great apes and African monkeys and... that's why your dog might have trouble seeing a red ball in green grass, but sees a blue ball better since most mammals don't have the cones for red/green or at least not as good of receptors... and... I think I zoned out there for a minute, and I'm paraphrasing...
Anyway, turns out a bit part of his lecture TODAY was on the eye and vision. And I now know more about color vision than I probably ever needed to.
Oh, and he also ACTUALLY USED the line about peach being a fruit, not a color, in his lecture (mind you, I did not talk to him at all today... apparently 21 years of cohabitation will make you freakishly alike...).
I like to think I'm better at colours, but my partner doesn't agree (of course!) I think he misses a colour (or two) and can claim a thing to be blue but I really do see an other colour!! Even with the rest of the family agreeing it isn't blue, he will claim it is blue... SIGH, well okay for YOU it is, for the rest of the country it isn't
All you peeps saying you're engineers, yikes that sound so intimidating! I am just a crafter, is that okay?
BTW engineer in/of what?? In my mind there are so many different sorts of engineers, but that might also be me translating it wrong?! It sounds like difficult, with lots of parts involving and being good at math! It sounds like everything I am NOT, haha! Measuring it twice, mweh, just start cutting, that sort of thing
I haven't done any more stalking or planning, I did order LOTS of yarn so I can crochet me a nice poncho (is that the same in English, not sure) While I wanted that, I also ordered some new, fresh, crochet needles. I was still using the borrowed ones of my MIL, it was about time I got my own!
I think I need to crochet Calabazza a nice, whatever...
Did I mention my new addiction is crochet?
