Something Went Wrong

I was driving down the road and noticed a truck in front of me. I looked at the image of Sherwin Williams on the back of the truck. For clarity, I have included that image at the top of this post. I laughed out loud to myself in my car after I looked at this illustration. Hopefully no other drivers noticed this oddly timed LOL.

I thought, "Sherwin Williams really doesn't understand how gravity works!"

I'm not looking to go deep into a full exposition of how gravity does work, but I'll give you a flavor. If gravity was accurate in this image, you may wonder how the can was being suspended in mid air! If you could resolve that issue, you would think about how the paint would fall to the surface of the earth and smother the poor earthlings below! I think that's how the dinosaurs went extinct. The paint would coat the outside of the earth. Sadly, it wouldn't drip off as in the logo. It would just continue to cover the land. That makes the slogan, "Cover The Earth" quite appropriate. It would literally swallow up the earth in paint. So, even though they horrifically misrepresent the law of gravitation, the have indeed crafted an illustration of their mission and goal to be the ones to cover the earth with paint, metaphorically, by being a prime retailer of paint sales.

But when you say it like that, it's hardly worth the LOL.

I just got a good laugh at this train of thought and needed to share it.

Bold Coffee: Gold Coast

Week #7 Gold Coast Blend
This is our biggest, boldest blend – a coffee with "big shoulders".
The source of Gold Coast Blend's bigness is a secret recipe of Latin America, Asia/Pacific and dark roast coffees. Created to celebrate the big city of Chicago, the interplay of these very different coffees weaves a deep and densely rich, sophisticated taste. A style all it's own, this coffee is truly one in a million.
I like knowing Starbucks is human too. By my account, that tag line has a typo at the end-"big shoulders". I may need to review my punctuation rules regarding quotes and punctuation inside or outside the end quote, but for now I am comforted to know that nobody-even Starbucks-is perfect.

Well, with my spring finals coming up, I needed a strong coffee! This one was definitely strong enough to keep me studying. I needed some caffeine to keep my eyes on the prize. But the prize this year was a few papers, two finals, and a bunch of reading. I had this coffe…

Connecticut Remembers Newtown

I received this email earlier in the week:
Connecticut Remembers Newtown this Friday

On Friday December 21st at 9:30am Gov. Malloy has asked us to offer a moment of silence in memory of our Newtown, Connecticut neighbors who died tragically last week. We hope you will join us and all of Connecticut in this solemn observance.

Click Here to read Gov. Malloy's official proclamation.

I think this was a very good reminder. The link takes you right to a pdf of the proclamation that describes the significance of remembering the events at Sandy Hook Elementary.

It's hard to think that this horrific shooting happened just a week ago. Even harder, is to think I was just blogging about "Change." As information about the shooting came trickling in via various sources of news, it's hardly the time for blogging. But little did I expect how life would change for those families. Horrible. How life could change for my family. The impact of this trauma has left it's mark…
