Looking for translation software? You're in the wrong place. But. If you think you might be interested in the musings of a cranky forty-something learning to follow her dreams, live without fear, love herself, and look good doing it, well then, hell, come on down!

(Word) Clouds in my Coffee

How cool (or maybe vain) is this? SnapShirts puts the words from your very own blog on a word cloud tee shirt.

A word cloud is a visual depiction of content (words) used in a body of text. The word clouds we use at are arranged alphabetically and depict more frequently used words in progressively larger fonts.

...The Custom line uses your own personal website to make word clouds. For Custom word clouds, our software analyzes your weblog and presents some of your most frequently used words. You can edit this list as much or as little as you like, it's completely customizable. If you have a weblog, click on Custom and give it a try.

Thanks to Kyle MacDonald of One Red Paperclip for the link. And speaking of cool, if you haven't seen One Red Paperclip, you need to. Right now. Go ahead, I'll wait.

[humming the Jeopardy! theme song while I wait... Da duh da duh da duh duuh, da duh da duh DUH!!... da duh duh duh duh...]

Now, is that cool or what? Not as cool, maybe, as the words from my blog on a tee shirt, but still. Kyle started with literally one red paperclip in July 2005, and has so far managed to trade his way up to a recording contract. His goal? A house. All by trading. So if you didn't check it out before (and I know you didn't), do it now. You'll be glad you did.
