shades of blue

I just realized that kornblått= blåklintsblått eftersom cornflower= blåklint. Maybe everyone else already had this figured out.

(I'm sorry that this only makes sense if you are a bilingual Swedish person.)

october is breast cancer awareness month

This is part of an email I just got from a former student:

I went into Safeway while they were trying to raise $100 for breast cancer awareness in 15 minutes. When I was about to checkout I asked what they were at and the lady said that they had $78 left. I thought of my dear Comm professor and the thousands of other powerful women who have been affected and the thousands of other women who will be affected. My total went rom $3.47 to $81.47 and I quietly walked out of the store. 

I think even Dan had a tear in his eye just now.
