Happy Labour’s Day!!!! Waiting to go swimming right now, so I started taking outfit shots.

Awkwardness. May upload them later. I’m wearing my AA mesh dress (finally!)!

Anyway, I’ve been alittle hooked on ambigrams (since yesterday), and I’ve found a website that does them for you!

An ambigram, also sometimes known as an inversion, is a typographical design that spells out one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another view point, direction or orientation. The words spelled out in the other view point, direction or orientation may be the same or different from the original words. Douglas R. Hofstadter describes an ambigram as a “calligraphic design that manages to squeeze two different readings into the selfsame set of curves.”

Go ahead, type in your name and see how it’ll look like as an ubercool ambigram! Or if you’re immature like me, you can type in ‘arse’ and ‘hole’ and be tickled infinitely by how that turns out.
