Day Two-Hundred Thirty-Nine: Don't Do Requests

Tarvis thinks I should blog about grapefruit tonight.

This is why you should not take requests.

I will say that we are opening a new show on our mainstage this week, a new show on our kids' stage next week, and a preview performance for our touring unit this weekend. (For those keeping track, we closed our last mainstage show eight days ago) People at my work are very busy right now, many are feeling overwhelmed and overworked, and the biggest push is likely to happen in the next 48 hours for a lot of folks. We'd appreciate your prayers, most definitely.

Speaking of sticky notes, did you know the low-tack, pressure-sensitive adhesive that became the "sticky" part of the sticky note was invented in 1968, but nobody at 3M thought it would be worth anything until a friend of the inventor's started using it to anchor his bookmark into his hymnal in 1974? And that it was STILL another six years before post-it-notes were widely sold in the U.S.?

Unless, of course, Wikipedia is lying to me...
