Ramblings and word verification
So I've been working on the shell house, reading a lot of children's books, and drinking a lot of tea these days.
My new interest is those words on bloggers comment word verification. I've started collecting the ones I see when I post to someone else's blog. Here's what I have so far.
I think that maybe they deserve some art. Is each one a creature? Or a verb? What would it mean to chortimp when someone told a joke? Is that like snorting and chortling and choking? Or would it be more of a chirping snort?
And if Motesic was a creature, would it have fur? I'm thinking maybe it would have feathers.
I'm not sure if I'll follow this up with anything, but I really love these little playful non word words. Most word verification software seems to have numbers and letters, and to be honest I never really noticed the things I had to type before.
Somehow the other day they struck me as highly entertaining, so I'm keeping a sticky open on my desktop to log them.
Maybe we should write Haiku's with one word verification word in each line.
in winters spary light
a motesic was watching
chortimp the season
Or something like that.
I'm not sure what that meant actually. Maybe that's part of the fun.
I encourage others to find something more fun to do with them! And to log your own!
PS: New info! I did some watercolors based on some of the words and they're up in my etsy shop right now!
