Shades of Grey or Gray?

Gray is one of my top favorite colors, especially for the home.  When I lived in a loft, I painted every wall gray.  Now, every wall in my house is white except for one gray wall in the kitchen.  I have a gray quilt in one room, and I have gray pillow cases in the guest room.  As a matter of fact, I am wearing a gray shirt as I type this.  You get the point.

Recently, I have been doing lots of online shopping for our new house.  This involves lots of searching for gray items.  This lead me to wonder if I even knew how to spell the word "gray", or is it "grey"? How embarrassing!  So, I Googled it.

There is a whole website dedicated to this issue: According to them, I should spell it "gray", since I am in America. According to Wikipedia Americans can spell it either way.  I'm going with "gray" here on out.

Thanks for enduring my random rambling.  It was on my mind, and I feel much better now.
