I spotted this pair of bright Pink Adirondack Chairs late last summer in Nova Scotia, while I was on a shore excursion during a very fun and unexpectedly cold cruise of Canada and New England. I wish I had had the presence of mind to kick that yellow plastic table out of frame. Hindsight: 20/20.
Hey what’s up. I just got home from a very fun cruise to ports in Canada and Maine and enjoyed taking lots of holiday snaps of cool things which I will now share with you on this rad blog in the coming weeks. The Shark Attack Street Sign pictured above was spotted in Lunenburg, in the province of Nova Scotia, Canada. There were all kinds of different fish depicted on colorful, elevated posts along the streets and they are a pretty cool addition to a very picturesque, historic town.
Bullies completely suck. Speaking as a person who was bullied relentlessly in junior high and high school, I can tell you that the white hot desire to inflict a reciprocal schoolyard beat-down never goes away. And what does that solve? Nothing, really. But sometimes, an individual, or two, has the courage to stand up to bullies and diffuse their idiocy with actions showing solidarity for the victim of the bullying. Honestly, we need to see more of that degree of kindness and tolerance going on. “That’s all well and good, but what does this have to do with the Pink Thing of The Day,” you ask? I’m getting to that. Here’s a cool story (from 2007) about two high school students in Nova Scotia who defended a fellow student against gay hate by organizing a day where a large group of students wore pink to school. “Pink Shirt Day” now takes place anually on February 25th. Because gay people rock, and bullies can suck it.
