“A girl I used to date once told me that her parents neglected her as a child. She remembered climbing this tree in her backyard and hiding from them just to see if they would look for her, or even notice that she was gone. I always thought it was such a sad story and I wrote this song for her. It also talks about the ups and downs in relationships that we’ve had recently.”—Vic Fuentes talking about ‘Hold On Till May’ (via pr0psnmayhem)
In spite of all the heat it’s taken this week for admitting an anti-gay position, Chick-fil-A is looking for locations in Boston - but it might not succeed.
One spot the chain is considering for a restaurant location is near the Freedom Trail, associated with the American Revolution, but Mayor Thomas Menino says that spot won’t fly for a business that’s openly homophobic.
“Chick-fil-A doesn’t belong in Boston,” Menino told the Boston Heraldyesterday. “You can’t have a business in the city of Boston that discriminates against a population. We’re an open city, we’re a city that’s at the forefront of inclusion. … That’s the Freedom Trail. That’s where it all started right here. And we’re not going to have a company, Chick-fil-A or whatever the hell the name is, on our Freedom Trail.”
Menino said Chick-fil-A will find it “very difficult” to get licenses in Boston unless it changes its policies, and he plans to send a letter to the company’s headquarters in Atlanta “telling them my feelings on the matter.”
“Chick-Fil-A doesn’t like gay people? So lame. Hate to think what they do to the gay chickens! Lost a loyal fan.”—Ed Helms (of The Office and The Hangover) tweeted that he’s joining the anti-Chick-fil-A bandwagon. Woohoo! More.
A while ago in my AP Chemistry class, this one annoying kid and my friend were having a weird argument about who was better. The annoying kid said, “Well, at least I have a girlfriend!” to which I responded, “Whatever. Your girlfriend has 67 protons.” In response, the entire class, including the teacher, turned their heads to look at the periodic table on the wall. The element with 67 protons is holmium, with the chemical symbol “Ho.” My teacher was the first to laugh.
