I just wanted to give you the heads-up about a neato project that UrbanInsomniac
is putting together - 'cause she needs your help!
From Lauren: "Send me funny quotes and I will write them up in nice lettering (turnaround time is unknown)
Example: You can't fight city hall, but you can drive by and egg it.
I have a project: writing quick funny quotes in fancy lettering on the back of index cards, waterproofing them and nailing them to telephone poles along my street (urban, busy, lots of pedestrians).
3 nights ago I posted 'A stitch in time would have confused Einstein' and yesterday someone posted back, on the same telephone pole a printed wiki article with bold letters at the top "Actually, he was okay with it.'"
It's like we're writing little letters to people all over her city! I don't know about you, but I love that idea. I'm off to submit one to her myself - a phrase I once embroidered on a wall hanging: "When life gives you lemons, find someone to throw them at." :*)
