This past week, I saw an article that said Pantone and Prince’s estate had come up with a standardized custom color to “represent and honor” The Late Artist Formerly Known As Prince, represented by his “Love Symbol #2” and chosen to match the piano he was going to take with him on tour before he died.
If, as I was, you’re curious, the CSS color code is #553A63.
Mary and I have an expression whenever we do something like cleaning the stove or walking: we say we’re wearing our “panties of righteousness.” Example: I just mowed the lawn, so I’m wearing my panties of righteousness!
Wikipedia tells us that, in heraldry, a beast rampant is depicted in profile reared up on its himd legs, and applies to carnivorous beasts, like the lion. Forcené is the word used when it’s a horse or unicorn, and segreant applies to griffins and dragons. Heraldry can be really cool, y’know?
