Dan likes to make lists on his laptop, and I like to change them when he’s not looking. Here’s the list he made last night. (Note: Dan hates olives and beef jerky.)
vent in bathroom fixed?
What do all the light switches do?
Why do bad things happen to good people?
Is there a God?
front screen door hinge?
What’s the story with parking spaces?
paper towel dispenser
floor mat for bathroom
shower puff (Dan)
olive flavored beef jerky
Then I discovered Wordle, a site that generates word clouds from text. Making lists is a lot more fun when you can then Wordle them.
I like how bathroom dominates. I’m also quite fond of the platitude jerky happen. Wordle is a useful tool for poets. You can cut and paste your entire manuscript, and it will give greater prominence to the words used most frequently. What a great way to uncover subconscious themes and/or mess with your boyfriend’s OCD.
