Friday Randomness : Typography

nce I wished I could walk on crutches. On that same day--my 10th birthday--I went rollerskating and fell, breaking my shin. I was in a toe-to-thigh cast for six months. 178 days of having one leg...and lots of sympathy. When the doctor removed the cast, he found a broken plastic fork, leaves, and a red Skittle.

I have no idea why I'm sharing this story other than to make you happy you're not in cast. With a piece of candy stuck to your thigh.

This leads me to another installment of Friday Randomness...

Here's the first known photo of Michael Phelps...

I'm working on a new blog and website, and I fell in love with this typography...


Happy Friday!

Marlene Stemme - In 2001, I broke my ankle and wore a cast for seven weeks. The other people walking on two legs all the time started to look bizarre to me, like creatures from a "Far Side" zoo. It was a total perspective revelation.  08.10.12 - 8:16pm

Amy Moore - Are you really re-doing your website?!? So SAD! I love LOVE your website design - there is nothing like it out there. It's incredibly unique and it's 100% totally completely fab J* all the way! On a personal side note - I do know how one can get bored with their own site...then again most of us don't have a website as fab as yours - but seriously... you know the saying "don't mess a good thing," I seriously think it applies here. Just my two cents. HAPPY FRIDAY!  08.10.12 - 10:35am
Haley Johnston - You seriously crack me up! A great read to start my Friday! Have a fantastic weekend! :)   08.10.12 - 10:07am
Whitney Dupuis - The last one about the rubber band cracked me up. Sad, but funny.  08.10.12 - 9:58am
Alex Sablan - I was a little shocked at first when I saw 'Merican Eagle but after I looked again and noticed it didn't say Mexican Eagle I chuckled...  08.10.12 - 9:43am
Tamara Lockwood - I can't stop laughing at the Phelps photo. You made my day :) Haha  08.10.12 - 9:42am

Shauna Nicole - Thanks for the needed laugh...:)  08.10.12 - 9:29am
Angie Mack - J*. the first known photo of Michael Phelps...made me laugh! Loud! I had to pin it.   08.10.12 - 9:27am
Jasmine* - @James Dyas: I would include links if they had been included on where I found the "gems" (most via Facebook posted by others or random sites on the web). The biggest problem with sharing things on the web is not knowing where or how they were produced...had they been noted/copyrighted/highlighted I'd be more than happy to share. Thanks!  08.10.12 - 9:24am
Jacks-Pixels - Excellent ... sometime, design can produce great things :) Happy creativity !  08.10.12 - 9:17am
James Dyas Davidson - Enjoy your Friday Randomness but it is a shame you don't provide a link through to where all this fun stuff comes from, especially from a preacher of 'Lips and Clicks'. I'm sure many would love to share these great wee gems from the web. :-)  08.10.12 - 9:14am
Lisa Jay - That typography is so cool. Even if I sadly had to stop & think for a couple of them ;) .... Why does the thought of wearing a cast with a skittle stuck in it make feel claustraphobic? Have a great day x  08.10.12 - 9:11am
Jamilah (like va-nil-la) - omg - why did I laugh so hard at the 'merica picture? LOL thanks for the laugh Jasmine! can't wait to see what your new site & blog will look like =)  08.10.12 - 9:07am
Trish - I know a few people who'd proudly hang a picture of the 'Merican Eagle up in their house ;-)   08.10.12 - 8:31am
