operation 32: ANGER

ok, this was a *FUN* one!

when elise asked, "what makes you angry?" as part of this week's paper adventure prompt, i wasn't sure how i could make that into a page i'd want to save forever. but i'll tell you what, the next time you are feeling upset, just start typing furiously (in both senses of the word!) EVERYTHING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD that annoys you: big & small, temporary & long-lasting, silly & serious; then play around with some fonts...maybe add a few layers...and print it all out! i'm tellin' ya, it's better than therapy, and a damn sight cheaper!!!

(software: broderbund printshop; fonts: ck typewriter & linenstroke; chipboard alphas: lil davis; photo from "i can has cheeseburger")

a small side benefit of paper adventure which i'm really enjoying is the way i am unintentionally recording things i am "into" this year. like using certain products because they are my current faves, or trying out the "hot" technique i just saw in a magazine. in this case, by using this funny lolcat picture to illustrate "angry" it's also recording for all posterity the fact that, for at least this particular 6 months of 2008, i was addicted to a website called "i can has cheeseburger". i suspect that 20 years from now, i will enjoy remembering stuff like that almost as much as the memories i am documenting on purpose! :)
