Fonts of Fancy

See that whimsical font used to spell out "beansprouts" up there? I have to thank Mr. Kevin King for that. I was brainstorming for ideas that would spark a change in direction in my blog (the results of which you see on your screen before you). As soon as I saw this font, "Kingthings Annex", I could see it in the new header I was designing in my head. Kevin is quite a creative dude; check out his site for some fantastic fonts, and have a peek at his brilliant artwork. Such talent, and he's a right nice chap. Polite. Genuine. Took the time to email me back after I sent him a slightly eccentric note regarding his web site. I tend to get really silly in the wee small hours of the morning, which is when I happened across his work. I gushed and probably embarrassed him. I embarrassed myself. But, ya know what? Life is too short not to say what you feel, even if it is a bit silly. If you appreciate something, or it.

It's 3:30 a.m. I'd best get to bed before I prove to any potential readers just how silly I can get at this hour.

The best laid plans of mice and men...

I have the best intentions to keep a blog updated, but always fall short. I started this a year ago, and posted a whopping two times. Lately, however, I keep experiencing situations that, while not proper material for the books I'm writing, still weigh on my mind and it occurs to me that I should be writing about them. Somewhere. Sometimes they're random thoughts that pop into my head, other times, they're deep and profound, things I believe the world should know. Things that I think could save the world if everyone believed as I do. Ha! Not bloody likely.

So, in changing the name of my blog from "SynchroniciTee" to "Bicycles and Beansprouts", mayhaps I'll be more apt to keep the world informed of what it looks like from my bike...which is primarily powered by beansprouts. Not a bad way to live...not bad at all.
