Kwabs, Last Stand
— Dalai Lama
A typeface memory game. With twenty-five pairs of cards, each presenting a different type family, this is a very stylish and interesting typographic concentration game. The kit includes a typographical glossary with the main terms used in typography as well as a text about the evolution of type design, locating in history each one of the fonts used in the game.

Outerhope, Lost in the numbers
Front Cover: Star Wars/Star Trek And The 21st Century Christians
Published in 1978 (and primarily focused on Star Wars despite Spock and the Enterprise featuring prominently on the cover), this book was published by Bible Voice in an effort to get the youth of America interested in what Jesus has to offer. New Zealander Winkie Pratney’s…odd phrasing throughout is summed up wonderfully by the back cover blurb:"Trust the Force, Luke!"
Wouldn’t it be wonderful
If there really was a Force?
Something of great and awesome power
Available to anyone anywhere at any time!
Who would pay the price to learn of its ways and surrender to its direction?
Long, long ago, of a galaxy not far away,
It was written
“The Kingdom of Heaven suffers violence, and the violent take it by Force”
Will you dare to lay aside your limits
And trust your life and destiny to the wisdom that holds together the stars?
“May the Force be with you.”
I get happy.
Last Tuesday, someone called me Sweet Cheeks. Nice.
Yesterday, my dad called me by my childhood nickname. Awwww.
Today, while sitting at the auto repair shop (for 6 hours!), one of the older men* who was chatting me up as he walked back and forth in front of the place called me several things: Shiny Smile (?), Cool Head (?), Red Horse (because red Mustang?), and Bookish Beauty (because reading).
Sure, over the past month, I’ve spent a small fortune on car repairs… but I have also collected a few good nicknames in the last week. I’m pretty sure I can call that leveling out. Or something.
*I made three friends today. All cool. All proud AARP cardholders.
