Valentine's Day "Science Project"

valentines-day-science-project

Here is a great science project-inspired Valentine’s Day card from one geeky-yet-considerate husband with a sense of humor to his overworked wife. Click on the image for a bigger version so you can read the hypothesis, variables, and eventual conclusion.

My hypothesis is that if I help with the kids when I get home from work, Mindy will be happier than if I sit on the couch, or check my email. Turns out my hypothesis was correct. (Shocking!)


Liz Revision font: give yourself a headache

lizwriting

(and if you can’t read that:) Hey, feel like forging Liz Revision notes and legal documents? Now you can with the Liz Revision font, called, surprisingly, “Liz Revision.” Awfully clever, I know.

And if you’d rather see your printing while you’re typing (I sure wouldn’t-my printing is goofy and I would surely give myself a headache), I’d recommend you visit the site where I made mine, yourfonts.com. You download a template, fill it out, scan it and then upload it back to the site. Et voila-your very own handwriting font. I bet if you work on keeping all your characters right in the center it won’t look as schitzoid as mine.
