Friday Randomness : Typography


Once 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!

    I know a few people who’d proudly hang a picture of the ‘Merican Eagle up in their house 😉

    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

    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. 🙂

    @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!

    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…

    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!

    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.

    Oh. Em. Gee!! When I was 8, i "test drove" a wheel chair, then went skating a couple days later and broke my leg. I TOO was in a toe to thigh cast for almost 6 months!! I did not, however, find a red skittle when I got the cast removed. 🙂 Crazy stuff!!!

    First photo of Michael Phelps was too funny. And the rubberband one, too – I’ve found a lot of those – no hundreds 🙁

    Hahaha… I can’t stop laughing after seeing that first known photo of Michael Phelps and the rubberband.

    Oh, and I think that Moon logo is the best from that list.

    …and… err… Michael Phelps… LOL!
