Personally I'm getting really sick of Cool Gray whatever. Is it the new design fad or what?

I keep getting 4 color grays from designers.

They're all connected. One desinger does something with Cool Gray, now they're all using it. They probably all met on a beach in Cancun while "on vacation" to discuss future agendas and how to best torment the people who have to print their garbage.

I have been under his tutelage for some time now. I don't quite have the same finesse and strong stomach, but if he's busy I think we'll do okay on our own.

Not me. Makes me want to puke. Wonder what's in line for 2011?

I hear that it will be Boehner Burnt Orange.
