If there's one thing I can't stand, it's doing nothing.

Fun Web Word Toy!
The site is called Wordle.net and it takes text and automatically generates the words in different font sizes, based on how often the words are used in a piece.
They used their cool text cloud tool to do a really fascinating comparison of past presidential inauguration speeches. New York Times uses it all the time, especially during the 2008 primary stump speeches of the different candidates.
I inserted my spa post into try it out and I thought it was kind of funny. (See above) The tiny, tiny word on the bottom right says "cinnabuns."
AlwaysFishing.com was started out of a dream I had about blogging -- no kidding -- but it fits in perfectly with what I do: I'm always fishing for good stories. I use this blog to write about the odds and ends of my life around Washington, D.C. and other places. Sometimes I write about other people's lives or weird things I find on the Internet. I hope my ramblings make you laugh too. This is my personal blog that I use for fun and by no means represents anyone else's views but my own. Connect with me here and on Twitter @leffron831.
