> Wilkes also alleges that after Leonard signed with the Clippers he met with West at a Beverly Hills restaurant and West "reconfirmed that he and the CLIPPERS would take care of him and honor their agreement. Jerry then instructed Plaintiff to type his request for payment and email it to his good friend Jim Gray. While at the meeting Jim Gray sent Plaintiff his email address. Plaintiff formalized his request in writing and emailed it to Jim Gray shortly thereafter," according to the lawsuit.
If true, all Wilkes has to provide are the email communications with Jim Gray. That should be the smoking gun.
As the title says, I went into Walgreens to buy another reusable mask, because the one I was wearing was starting to fray on the inside. Anyways, I pick a simple grayish-brown one that just has the name of my state across the front (chose it because it was the cheapest one). Went up to the cashier and he says "oh, this one is for guys. Masks for you are over there," and he pointed to a section I already looked at. I just said it's for my husband, so we wouldn't have to continue talking. He said "oh okay, I thought it was for you, my bad," and sold it to me. I looked at the packaging, and sure enough it didn't say anything about gender. Even if it did, who cares? I don't need someone's permission to buy something from Walgreens lol. It just got under my skin a bit because of how pointless the interaction was. Not mad, just annoyed that this kind of stuff happens even when you're older.
Last week someone asked me what my favorite color was, and I told them it was gray. They seemed completely taken aback. “Gray?? Are you joking?”
No. Let me tell you why. It’s quite LITERALLY the perfect mix. The epitome of balance — a color right in the middle of white and black. Not too bright, not too dark. It’s the Goldilocks of color! It’s neutral and goes with everything.
My sheets are gray. My curtains, favorite clothes, sweatshirts(!), towels, blankets, countertop... gray. They go with everything and can easily be mixed with an accent color without all the clashing and tackiness.
And then you have people saying, “that’s so BORING. There’s no personality there!!” Well let me tell you that perfection is not boring.
Get your lavendar, midnight blue, opalescent, sunset orange loving ass out of here and start appreciating gray for all of its versatile and reliable GLORY
One of my favorite youtube channels did an interesting video on The Face Name effect (also known as the Dorian Grey Effect) wherein external labels, such as a name, have an internal effect on self worth, confidence, grooming habits and aesthetic choices.
Many people talk about anecdotal evidence and personal experiences with the way that social perceptions of their name have influenced their life, but I was really fascinated by the research described in the video, giving scientific evidence that a name really does have a massive influence on a person, even physically! Importantly, this evidence concludes that the choice of name has real social consequences.
Some things that stood out to me:
There was more than I can properly summarize. I'm fascinated. What do you all think about this? Do people perceive you in a specific way because of your name? Have you altered you appearance in anyway (clothing, style, piercings, etc) to fit your name?
Pantone just announced their colors of the year and while we all know this is a marketing stunt, I feel like they kind of got it this year. I genuinely thought it was going to be a dull beige because that’s how I’m feeling about the coming year so far. The combo does make sense in a metaphorical way - like the light at the end of the tunnel or the brightness in the gray that is going to be the next few months.
From the trend prediction standpoint, I think they got it right again. Yellow has been having a moment for sure - I for one have recently purchased yellow pants x2, yellow socks, a yellow throw pillow, and a couple of other yellow knick knacks. Grey has been crazy trendy for years, especially in the home design/decor sphere.
Thoughts? Do you love it or hate it? Are you going to incorporate these colors into your life or ignore them like the opportunistic capitalist cash grabs they are? Have you already incorporated them into your life/style/home?
