It's all about the wordmark

I really just keep this old blog around cause I love the wordmark I made for it.

Mostly my internet presence has moved on to twitter and I share lots of things I find interesting on Google Reader.

In other news, my best friend got married, I moved in with my parents, and I got engaged to Bethany.

I'll feel better when the winters gone.

Says the chorus of the recently released November was White, December was Grey by Say Hi.
Download here.

Boss is finally back in the office after two months of near complete absence. Finally getting excited about the work ahead of me. Though that may be related to the vacations I'm planning to Georgia in February and March. I haven't left this wintry place since mid-October.

I'm probably not moving back to the city till May/June. Georgetown Twp. isn't that awful and gas prices tanked, so the very low cost of living is worth it.

I'm using to track my finances and found the following equivalencies:

-a tank of gas for my vibe
-dinner for two at Panera Bread
-dinner for one at Red Robin
-an average trip to Target (chocolate, soup, and underwear)
-a glass of wine at Five & Ten

Another magazine from the bathroom. Who has a subscription to Old West magazine? What is this about women and whips?

The article featured several such newspaper headlines. Though I'm not really sure what the whole point of the article was. That women are crazy and can't be trusted?

I really like the type of the headline here, maybe I'll mock something up similar to that, use it for something.
