Default Go-to thread color?

Do y'all have a certain color of thread that's sort of your "default"? Y'know... like if you're sewing scraps or something with a bunch of different colors? I do. Mine is a medium kind of olive green. I know it sounds weird but it really does blend & go with everything. I've tried taupe-y tans & grays but I still like this shade the best. Just curious...

I usually keep beige or gray in one of my machines for random scrap quilts.

Gutterman's pale lilac in the bobbin. Any medium/light color on the top. I like sewing with two colors. If I have to take it out, it seems easier. Love how the lilac blends and because the 301's bobbin is small, I like a thinner thread.
