Important Questions for Our Times

Why is it that people so very often reply-all when it's totally inappropriate?

And then people fail to reply-all when it would make life so much easier for all involved?

What's that about?

So I heard this NPR story recently about the first white valedictorian to graduate from Morehouse, a historically black college. Interesting stuff, but the item that caught my attention was when the interviewer asked him something to the extent of, "Do you feel you've got a unique perspective, being the very rare white person who has been in the minority?"

What's your reaction to that? Because I immediately thought, well, it's not that rare. What about homo- and bisexuals, Jews, women in science, men in nursing? I'm not sure if the interviewer meant racial minority, specifically, but just didn't say it, or if she genuinely doesn't think that people in those situations are, in fact, minorities. I'm intrigued to hear other people's thoughts.

He is a Fan of the Old School Musicals

Earlier today, our box office manager was on the phone with a patron when we heard the following:

"My name is Tristan. Tristan. With a T. Tristan. That's T as in top hat, R as in rice cake, I as in igloo, S as in snake, T as in top hat, A as in Annie Get Your Gun, N as in Nancy. Uh-huh, Tristan."

I think what surprised me most was the sheer banality of "snake" and "Nancy."

Ok, this has bugged me for years. How come, when an actor is playing someone going through chemotheraphy, he/she will frequently shave his/her head, but do nothing about the eyebrows and eyelashes? What mythical world do these people live in that chemo completely eliminates all the hair on the top and back of the head, but none on the front???

Am I the only person that gets bothered by this?

And is it sad that this is the first thing that I've posted in six weeks? It's not that I haven't been inspired... it's just that I'm always inspired when I'm way too far away from a computer to do anything about it.

This chemo thing, though? This has stuck with me for DAYS.
