    RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI

    RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI will be taking place on Saturday July 12, 2014

    Everybody is invited to attend, and this time I really do mean everybody

    The theme for RGBAD6 is INCLUSION

    In keeping with that theme and in a show of good faith, I am making an extra special effort this year to welcome all groups (Blacks, Latinos, LGBT, for instance) who may have felt excluded from or even slighted by prior Biv Day festivities

    My goal is to bring our entire community together...to unite people, not divide them...and to help make this world a better place

    While no group or individual has ever been (nor ever will be) barred from attending the RGBAD, the fact is minorities (and even non-minorities for that matter) have not been showing up to the event - especially recently - and that disturbs me. Hence the outreach...

    In addition I am hoping to set the record straight this year about the true purpose of RoyBiv Day and to prove once and for all that the RGBAD is not simply an excuse for posting dumb song parodies, but rather what we're really all about is spreading peace, love, and joy (across the nation, around the world, and throughout the universe), and we do so by promoting lofty abstract ideals like EQUALITY, DIVERSITY, TOLERANCE, FREEDOM, and of course INCLUSION

    Not kidding! That really is what RoyBiv Day is all about!

    [Yeah, and if you believe that, I have shares in a Johnny's Lunch from Reidville (home of the famous Biv Plate Special) franchise...in Bolivia...I'd like to sell you]

    Happy Biv Day, everyone!

    Hi, Ache


    I am looking forward to the event :)


    Btw: I highly recommend the Geek Squad, they spent hours online with me getting rid of nasty viruses on my computer, turns out I won't be needing a new computer after all.


    I was a victim of ransomware/malware, files encrypted and all.  Luckily I had nothing of importance on there, because it's gone, unless I pay the ransom,lol.


    I won't store pics, no facebook, no nothing....creepy stuff going on out there.


    Ps: I like the inclusion theme, very politically correct.

    'Scuse me while Roy kisses *ss

    RoyBiv Daze all around
    Dont know if Roy's gonna make it down
    Will he attend it or be absentee?
    Whatever he does, that dude will put a slurp on me

    Dont know if I'm gonna go insane
    Roy drives me wild, he makes me scream
    Is this RoyBiv Day or just a happy dream?

    Hi, everyone

    FYI: First authentic minority* to show up for the RGBAD this afternoon will win a box of two dozen "Inclusion" mini cupcakes which are courtesy of our friends at Johnny's Lunch of Reidville (home of the famous Biv Plate Special)

    Happy Biv Day!



    * - That leaves you out, Granny Warren

    Ache, are you referring to Elizabeth Warren?  I'm not fond of the woman, however, I recently had an eye exam (new prescription) and I always stay with my rimless frames, similar to what EW wears. 


    I was perturbed to read about them being described as "granny glasses"   I think they are quite stylish :)


    Btw: Feed those cupcakes to your enemies! LOL


    Ps: Some people think Armenian people are black, I am half Armenian, so does that make me a minority?

    Ache, what do you think of these, as a backup (transitions, anti-glare, polycarb) in lieu of sunglasses?


    edit


    The only other ones I liked were over $300, insurance only covers a little bit :(

    Robin, I was preparing myself to let you down gently and informing you that because you are a "regular white gal", you would not be eligible for the prize

    But your startling revelation today that Armenians are black flips everything

    Hmmm. I'm gonna have to think about this and get back to you later this afternoon

    I dont want Biv Day marred in controversy regarding who is and who isnt a minority, okay?

    Happy RGBAD VI by the way

    PS The glasses look very attractive to me. I like them

    ETA: Yes, Granny Warren = Liz Warren

    Song title: With a Little Help from RoyBiv
    Song parodied: With a Little Help from My Friends
    Original artist: The Beatles

    Trigger alert: WARNING! The following song expresses subtle, but radical, Biv Fanaticism that some of you may be offended by. If you dont wish to expose yourself to extreme propaganda like this, you are strongly advised to look away NOW!



    How would you feel if my song lacked appeal
    Would you stand up and give me the razz?
    Lend me your ear, and I'll sing for you, dear
    And I'll try not to sing like a spazz

    Oh, I feel great with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, I TOLERATE with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, NEVER HATE with a little help from RoyBiv

    What do I do when RoyBiv Day is near
    (Does it worry you if no one shows?)
    How do I feel? I'm the only one here!
    (Are you sad? I bet that feeling blows)

    No, I feel great with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, I TOLERATE with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, NEVER HATE with a little help from RoyBiv

    Do you need anybody?
    I just need Dandy RoyBiv
    Could it be anybody?
    I want my Dandy RoyBiv

    Would you believe that I love RoyG B
    (Yeah, we do. It's no secret on this blog)
    I wonder if he feels the same about me?
    (If he does, he'll give your butt a snog)

    Oh, I feel great with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, I TOLERATE with a little help from RoyBiv
    Mmm, NEVER HATE with a little help from RoyBiv

    Yeah, I feel great with a little help from RoyBiv
    With a little help from Roy B-I-V!

    Re: RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI

    Ache, thanks for your input regarding the frames.  I will probably stick with my tried and true ones that I have had for a while.

    The quality frames seem to be more comfortable and lighter, I have noticed a difference when you pay a little more.

    It is fun looking though.  Wish I didn't need them at all,  but I can't be bothered with contacts anymore.

    Re: RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI

    Robin, regarding your status as a minority and your eligibility for the prize today, the judges are rejecting your assertion that Armenians are black and have disqualified you from consideration. Also they didnt appreciate your remark about cupcakes being fed to the "enemy". They thought it was in poor taste and was an affront to the baking community. Theyve instructed me to ask you to issue an apology. (You dont have to though)

    PS No minority has shown up as of yet, so the prize is still up for grabs. Only twelve mini cupcakes left however. William and I split an even dozen between us at lunch this afternoon

    Sorry :( 

    But, some of us do get sick after eating that stuff.  

    Okay, I am 1/2 Middle Eastern,  I suppose that doesn't count for anything...

    Re: RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI

    Armenia is regarded as Middle Eastern? (ETA: Or did you mean that you are also half-Lebanese, say?) It's east of Turkey and north of Iran, so I guess that is pretty middle eastern

    But, no, it would not qualify you as minority either

    Sorry, Robin

    PS Apology accepted!

    Re: RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI

    We've reached the sing-along portion of today's festivities, and I cant think of a more appropriate song than this one with which to pay tribute to our theme of INCLUSION

    On your song sheet the verses are in red. I'll be singing those. And the rest of you will handle the chorus, highlighted in blue, okay?

    Everyone kindly gather 'round the campfire now. Easy. No pushing please. Plenty of room for everybody. Biv Day is about love, not shove

    Ready? Begin:



    Biv Day is your day, Biv Day is my day
    From Cleveland Circle to the Harbor Islands
    From the Red Line T Stops to the L Street Bathhouse
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    As I was walking throughout Biv Nation
    I sensed a power and jubilation
    And in the distance a band was playing
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    Biv Day is your day, Biv Day is my day
    From Cleveland Circle to the Harbor Islands
    From the Red Line T Stops to the L Street Bathhouse
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    I roamed and rambled, I felt the spirit
    A love for Dandy. I did not fear it
    And from the rooftops Biv fans were shouting
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    Biv Day is your day, Biv Day is my day
    From Cleveland Circle to the Harbor Islands
    From the Red Line T Stops to the L Street Bathhouse
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    The sun was shining, the bells were ringing
    The people laughing, and some were singing
    And all around me their voices rising
    Biv Day is made for you and me

    Biv Day is your day, Biv Day is my day
    From Cleveland Circle to the Harbor Islands
    From the Red Line T Stops to the L Street Bathhouse
    Biv Day is made for you and me

                Biv Day may be your day, Wildo, but it definitely isnt mine
                  Add "Seniors" to the list of groups youve alienated too
                     No way OBN will ever attend your precious RGBAD
                                    Not as long as I'm still Queen
         And not until you finally admit you and Robin are the same person!
                              Your little deception doesnt fool me
                                  I'm wise to your trickery, Wildo
                                        Cant catfish the Queen!
                                      Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

    Okay, well, no minority stepped up to accept the prize today, so I am splitting the remaining 12 mini cupcakes with my dog and best friend, William, just like we split the first 12 this afternoon

    We will share them tomorrow during the World Cup finale

    I'm rooting for Germany. William likes Argentina

    I now declare the celebration of the RoyGBiv Appreciation Day VI to be closed

    And in accordance with tradition, I call upon all Biv Fanatics from across the nation and around the world to assemble once again six months from now here at this same dumb message board to celebrate the RoyGBiv Winter Freak Festival IV (the "Send Lawyers, Guns, and Dandy" edition)

    Goodnight, everybody

    Try incorporating a little INCLUSION in your every day lives. It works

    Okay, Jimi gets the last word:
