On the difficulty of escaping from the Borg
Jenny Joseph wrote poem which starts
When I am an old woman I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.

As soon as I saw the lines, I visualized particular shades of red and purple, which I'm sorry to say don't clash all that horribly.

What's more, they're the default medium-dark purple and slightly orange red seen here. There seems to be a second default purple, sort of a medium lavender.

I'd say most of the women are wearing hats that suit them.

When I am old, I shall wear some other colors. And not form a club about them.

When I am an old woman I shall wear blue and green,
With a cute, comfortable hat in a natural earth tone.

... doesn't have quite the same drama, does it?

For my 50th birthday, I did threaten to wear purple bellydance silks with a red pirate hat, but in the end I didn't bother. Good thing, too, because I got macked on by enough pirates that evening as it was.
