Last Words?

Hard. Worse. (Answer to the question, "How are things?")
Tired. Struggling. (Me)
Like back when I first started blogging, only harder and worser as i get older and more frayed. (what is wrong with "worser"? i taught English... i like it)

But my last vestige of hope lies here, so here I have stumbled breathlessly, and rather than sing the same sad song out of tune with my last wheeze, I have a tangent for you instead. Maybe it'll distract us both:

Wordle. Have you tried it? No? Immediately, you must. Yes, now, unless you want to read first down to my last word. I am too frayed and this computer to pathetic for checking the exact address, but you'll find it; try or some such. If you blog, when you get to the site, give it the url of your blog and then go, "Ooooooh. Ahhhhhhhhh." Be a smartypants and capture a screenshot if you can; I would thrill to see it on your blog next time I visit. (btw i am a total junkie right now, reading and starring and rereading and forwarding and reading aloud to my husband the things you write, and i would comment instead of lurk, but see above...)

Also, someone tell me how a tired and struggling, frayed frazzle would most quickly take all the drivel of the last six months and plop it quickly and painlessly into some program/site/something-or-other and push a few buttons and wham out prints a book of sorts just for my own collection of hard cover journals? Or even paper cover? There must be a way to buy your own blog as a book in this age of if-you-can-think-it-you-can-buy-it-online.

Last word.

Hey Gayle, there is a company that does good photobooks, that also has a blog book option. I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the company, though...Argh. But you download their software and then somehow upload your blog posts and layout the format, etc. Friends have used it for the photo book option and were really happy. I will try to google it and find out if I can find their website.
