Assorted silliness


Roaming around looking for beautiful losers I stumbled upon againstnature. Judging from its info page this community should appeal to several of my lj friends. An entry on St. Sebastian (for whom I have had a dubious fascination ever since I can remember) led me to the moderator(?)'s journal, where I found a link (cleverly disguised as a quiz) to an interesting typography identity website. Tonight I saw a charming comedy called Serendipity, well, this also was serendipity. I was finally able to identify one of my favourite typefaces. Ladies and gentlemen, meet ICT Tiffany:

I also found a real quiz, very apt for those of us who are a little under the weather (I've been coughing my lungs out lately, and it's not getting better but worse):

the plague
Congratulations! You have The Plague! The ABSOLUTE
premier disease of the Middle Ages, you
probably caught this by the bite of an infected
flea or from someone with the pneumonic form.
You are suffering from swellings called buboes,
in the lymph nodes of the neck, armpits and
groin. These are going to become very painful
as they fill up with blood and pus. Your
headache is going to get much worse, your
temperature will become unbearable and you will
soon be delirious. Vomiting and diarrhea will
accompany all of this. More bad news is that
there is a 75% mortality rate. The good news
is, if you live, jobs are going to be much more
plentiful!


Which Medieval Plague Do You Have?
brought to you by Quizilla


I find that last line very comforting, especially since I received another rejection letter today:

"From over 25 reactions we have chosen someone who is still in training and does not have too much experience yet."

*sigh*
