A Conversation for A brief history of purple (work in progress)
purplejenny Started conversation Sep 28, 2000
I had to write a quick entry about my favourite colour. Purple has no edited guide entry yet but many fans listed on the guide. When people are obessed by a colour, that colour is often purple, and I wonder if any of you have any idea why that might be?
A brief history of purple, A444700.
ps I submitted this page to the guide twice. A bit daft really, so can my mistake be rectified?

Hi Jenny. Liked the article. I quite like purple too, in fact I have a slight colour-blindness that makes me see a shade of purple when other people see a shade of blue.
Something you might consider putting in: why is the Purple Heart purple?

is it really supposed to be a colour of sexual frustration?
I had no idea.
Perhaps this a topic you would be more suited to cover?
love and kisses
from an unfrustrated purple person.

A most enjoyable read.
Perhaps there's a link between sexual frustration and bars of Cadbury's Dairy Milk, also purple?
I don't know if you should let the "purple haze" reference pass without mentioning Jimi Hendrix (especially as there's an article on him, http://www.h2g2.com/A248744 - the editors love bits that link the Guide together)

Thanks for all the feedback,
I hope that this weekend I will get chance to tidy up the entry on purple and the Wigan entry, and then hopefully they can both go into the guide.
I'm a very busy purple bunny at the moment, and my little cotton tail is bouncing around in a frantic state.
Much love to everybody ever,
