Brought to you by the letter G.

Gotta love today’s Daily Drop Cap from Jessica Hische. In case you’re looking for “G” words so that you can take full advantage of this bad-boy, allow me to offer some suggestions:


goober, gingerbread, Gide (as in André), gluestick, genesis (or the capitalized Phil Collins version), Gund, glib, gullable, grimace (or the capitalized purple blob from McDonald’s version), guffaw, gander, George (as in Sand), gaseous, grizzly, glamorous (as in Fergie), gratitude, gluttony, Gauguin, gamer, gingko, Gaultier (as in cone boobs), great, gabby, Gocco (!), gin, genuine, Golden Girls, gib, grubby, gracious, gummer (as in my baby niece and nephew, on my thumb), Gummi Bears, glad (or the capitalized trash bag version), garage, gender-specific, Gilman (as in Charlotte Perkins), gentrification, ginger (or the capitalized Gilligan’s Island character), Gilligan, gardens, gotcha (as in the journalism style of reporting), Goethe, globe, goldfish (or the capitalized Pepperidge Farm version), gibbon, Gap, Gargamel (as in The Smurfs), grabby, gimp, Gunther (as in Friends), giver, guppy, Genet (as in Les Bonnes)…

OK, I think that’s good. Ha! Get it? GOOD? “G”?!? OK, I’ll stop.

But seriously. Check them out:

I just came across these hilarious Bastille Day-themed gocco prints created by StrangeBoyCards, and I feel compelled to post them for all. Bon 14 juillet à tous!

Nothin' like a little Kool 'N the Gang to get the party started! ps) "Va-t-en" essentially means "F off"

Oh, and here’s what the envelopes for the cards look like:

"Lifecall!"

"Lifecall!"

AWESOME.

And now, my own contribution to the day: a photo I took of the Place de la Bastille in Paris, January 2006.
