What is Spirit Day?

Millions of Americans wear purple on Spirit Day as a sign of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) youth and to speak out against bullying. Spirit Day was started in 2010 by teenager Brittany McMillan as a response to the young people who had taken their own lives. Observed annually on October 20, individuals, schools, organizations, corporations, media professionals and celebrities wear purple, which symbolizes spirit on the rainbow flag. Getting involved is easy -- participants are asked to simply "go purple" on October 20 as we work to create a world in which LGBT teens are celebrated and accepted for who they are.

I am wearing a bright purple t-shirt. . . .purple has more red than blue in the mix. "Lavender" has more bluish in the mix.

My cosmetological vocabulary is lacking in the subtle variations and details of color. Like. . .did you know 'poppy' red is much brighter than 'cranberry' red. . .? 'lime' green is quieter than lemon green which really borders on yellow.. ? ;) And seasonal pumpkin orange is duller than navel orange?

Poco Harum, [sp] seemed to know there was "a whiter shade of pale".

Will varicose veins do?

And yes, Procol Harum was correct about a whiter shade of pale. That's the color I went when I had the heart attack 10 years ago. A mate of mine saw me being loaded into the ambulance and said I looked like a ghost.
