'Tis the Season

To take that crunched credit just as far as it will go! If you're in need of gift ideas, I've posted several on my blog. Everything but the Etsy stuff should still be available, I believe...

This is a Test

This is only a test:

however, it would be more fun if it were more than "rather" difficult.

Darn!

If You Could beat me to the punch! I've been investigating upright and sanserif scripts for a while, but these guys have already done it. i've tried to convince Mark Simonson to do a fully connecting version of Coquette, but don't think i sold him. Oh well, will still give it a go someday to make a full-fledged font similar to what the If You Could guys have already done.

A week with Mr. Unger

It's been great hearing from Gerard Unger this week. At lunch he told a joke i found quite humorous:

Q: what do making love in a canoe and american coffee have in common?
A: they're both too close to water.

For a few more insights, you can check out my other blog (still very much a work in progress).

when at wit's end...

...it's good to know that a bit of percussive maintenance can still do the trick. my poor ipod just died today for several minutes before i was was able to resuscitate it with a good, solid thump. glad to know this tried-and-true method still works with all our sophisticated gadgetry. >^p
