I really hate this commercial. Makes me want to never visit Lowe’s.

Maybe no one else cares. I dunno. But it just bugs me.

ACD blogs about some new Arts Council rule in the UK, where those requesting grants must reveal sexual orientation on the form.

Organisations applying for grants are being asked to state how many board members are bisexual, homosexual, heterosexual, lesbian or whose inclinations are “not known”. (RTWT)

I think I’d just check “not known” for everyone. Or maybe just say, “Not your business.” And why aren’t they asking about asexual?

Honestly though, what’s much more important, and clearly should have been asked, is what kind of chocolate they all prefer. Me? I’m all milk chocolate. All the time. (I know some of you think dark is the only chocolate. I’m sorry, but dark chocolate is plainly evil. It’s that simple.)

“Make it so.”

“Make it work.”

“Make my day.”

I’m sure most of you recognize at least one of those. How many can identify all three?

In case you didn’t know, they are all about making me a reed. I know you thought otherwise, but I’m here to tell you that what I say is true.

You can go on a cruise and still catch the Met. Read about it here.

I’m not sure I’m a cruise sort of person: I’m not one who socializes much, crowds exhaust me, and I’m afraid I’d feel trapped on a ship.

But I wouldn’t mind seeing Bohème. So if anyone wants to purchase a ticket for me just drop me a line. 😉

It’s especially good that the new release told us this:

Puccini’s most popular masterwork, ‘La Boheme’ tells the story of a
community of artists in Paris, and is the opera that inspired Broadway’s
hit musical, ‘RENT.’

Yeah. Must be good if Rent came out of it, eh?
