The Sticky Note Story, and Daphne

Since so many people come to my page looking for information on sticky notes, I thought I would give you this link to satisfy your knowledge urge: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Post-it_note#History

Also, for those of you doing your classics homework: Daphne was turned into a Bay Laurel tree (thus, a ring of Laurel around the heads of winning Olympians).  Apollo loved her because Eros/Cupid struck him with an arrow, and Daphne hated Apollo for the same reason (her arrow was lead-tipped, making her loath him).  Eros was trying to teach Apollo a lesson, because Apollo made fun of him.  Daphne’s dad, a river spirit, was the one who turned her into a tree.  If you want to know more, read Ovid’s Metamorphoses (the photo on the cover is Daphne turning into the tree when Apollo finally catches her – it’s a beautiful sculpture).
