Words that flow...

Words and images - powerful elements of our everyday life. Most of the time we take them for granted, but sometimes something happens to make you aware of how important they are... and how thankful you are to have the opportunity to use or appreciate them. Here lies some of my words and pictures (which are untouched apart from cropping, unless I've said otherwise) - Please add your words to mine, and leave a comment. Thanks for visiting!

(L) Lunch

The rhyme here has taken absolutely ages to work out how to do within the limited abilities of the blogger post-creator/ editor! Absolutely ages! And, I bet when I publish it's going to be a right mess, and totally incomprehensible. Well, there's no way of knowing until I take the plunge....

This rhyme is all about layout (....oh, and some pretty disgusting monsters) !

So, here goes... let's see if it worked!

(Just for you, Frolicsome Kid!
I took a screen-shot of it (don't know why the heck I didn't just do this in the first place!!! :-D )

So, hope what I was trying to achieve is recognisable!

:-D lol! How on earth did you do that, MOI? You got your comment up, even whilst I was still messing about with it!! Clever! :-D

This rhyme is full of more white full stops than you can imagine! :-D But, at least I now know how to seperate stuff!

Oh how fun......I love the way you are so playful with words.......they really float and twirl in your fingertips!

delightful!!

r-d meow....... :)

Hi r-d-kitty! Nice to see you again!

It took a long time to twirl these into shape, I'll tell you! :-D When I got it right in the post-writing screen they looked right, but if I wemt to preview screen they'd jumped out of line. Then, when I got it right in preview, I published & they jumped even further out of place!!!

But, oh what a sense of accomplishment I'm now feeling, having produced but a few lines!! :-D

cute! i love it! and you did get it with the editor...cool!

 
At November 26, 2006 1:26 am, Blogger Annelisa said...

Hiya Mystic - fun, don't you think? Yup, all with the editor. I had thought of scanning it in, and if this hadn't worked I would've. But it's better this way... though I haven't checked how it comes out when on Explorer (that sometimes rearranges things a bit on mine...)

Good to see you again - hope all's ok!

Yeah, I want some

I think explorer did what you bid
dribble, slobber, squelch, gobble and belch

:-D Quasar9

I think half my comments on other blogs have gone that way too!

Hi Annelisa,
You've got me spinning with that calendar link. lol!

PS - forgot to mention
Beautiful photo of a country lane
I love strolling or riding along them - just hope the traffic drives slow when they come round the bend

 
At November 26, 2006 9:25 pm, Blogger Annelisa said...

I thought about using the atom one myself, but my daughter wanted it! :-)

Re the country lane - Are you joking? Even knowing that around every corner a car might be met coming the other way, the traffic is still way fast... but surprisingly, I can't remember ever hearing of an accident down it!

Oh my Marrakech!!!

Hi Madd!

Thanks for asking after kids - still got 2 down, each with different illnesses, and I think I'm going down with something as well :-(

So, you make jewellery? Bet you've got a blog on it, and somehow I've missed it. I'll look when I'm feeling a bit more up to it!

Football, huh? Oh dear... no hope for you then :-) Once people have the bug, seems like they have it hard! Well, hope you enjoyed the game...

Hi Starbender - Glad it didn't scramble for you... I was doing a check on another pc last night, and it was eggs!

Welcome back, Hope! I'll come see you later!

Steve Novak - With sixsome or fivesome you won't be lonesome... and maybe won't find it so loathesome!

Brian - I'm sure you won't become twigsome, when you're thinking of your troublesome tum?

Steve - I'm sure it'd be frivoulously flavoursome

Loved this poem!

Thanks Katie, Glad you stopped by!

I came late to this party, you already know what a wonderful accomplishment this was...in so many ways. I knew coming to visit you would provide the smile(s) I desired tonight.

Sorry, annelisa, I can't make out the pattern, except for the word 'gobble'. I tried highlighting the whole poem, and I unraveled 'invisible ellipses' in white, hehehe! >=)

 
At December 01, 2006 10:30 am, Blogger Annelisa said...

To be late is apparently a fashionable thing - so consider yourself 'in the mode', Kilroy! :-)

Glad you liked it... although short, this was one of my favourites...

Oh, it's shame you can't get this FK - I'll take a picture of the page, and then you can see what it's supposed to be!

The main verse makes the 'L',
The word 'Dribble' makes 'U'
'Slobber' makes 'N'
'Squelch' makes 'C'
'Gobble' is the upright in 'H'
'Belch' is the arch in the 'h'

= Lunch


I'll take a photo of how it looks on my screen, and put it at the bottom...

 
At December 01, 2006 10:43 am, Blogger that frolicsome kid said...

OHHH! I SEE IT NOW!!!! I GOT IT!!! Hahahaha! Pretty cool, annelisa. Now it makes sense =D.

 
At December 01, 2006 11:26 am, Blogger Annelisa said...

Wow, that was quick, FK - I hadn't even got round to letting you know I'd put the piccie in yet!

 
At December 02, 2006 3:24 pm, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hey, thanks for taking the trouble to put that screenshot up! It looks much more clearer when it's scaled down. Heehee =)

 
At December 03, 2006 8:16 pm, Blogger Annelisa said...

No probs, FK! (- maybe you can explain some of your smileys sometimes?)
