From Kerrie B re the 21st birthday party on a Quentin Tarantino theme:

Great photos but where are you & Kate? Love & best wishes to Elliot

Kate and I were Mia Wallace and Vincent Vega.  I did not take pics of us, sorry.

Let’s have a bit of fun with words.

Some time ago, Ji Lee started depicting words in ways that illustrated what they stood for. In her words:

This project started nearly twenty years ago as an assignment in my typography class at art school. Students were encouraged to see letters beyond their dull, practical functionality. The challenge is to visualize the meaning of a word, using only the graphic elements of the letters forming the word, without adding any outside parts. The challenge was very hard, but the reward of “cracking” a word felt great. So this became a lifelong project for me. n 2011, I published a book called “Word as Image” containing nearly 100 words.

Here are some of those word images, some quite imaginative:
