Wednescellany: There's nothing like a real book, a Keep Calm question and a thank you

Good morning, friends!

I ran across this video yesterday through work and it's just so lovely I had to share.

Now, I'm not against digital media, mind you, but I don't think I'll ever not love the feel of a book in my hands.

Recently, Qwertee featured a t-shirt that I considered a great spin on a trend.

Although I do agree that Keep Calm is a little overdone, I think the original is iconic and the spin-offs some people come up with are totally amusing. (I have a Keep Calm and Rock On poster in my cubicle at work and own a Now Panic and Freak Out t-shirt; Jen from A Tale of Two Monkeys has great Doctor Who-inspired takes through her Nerdified Shirts business.)

This version struck me because of the Supernatural reference. I didn't care too much for the lacking "Keep Calm" part, however, so I worked up a little something for personal use. I couldn't quite decide on which version I liked best ... so I thought I'd ask you!


Let me know which one you like best in the comments. I'll be using this as a computer wallpaper at work, and could possibly be persuaded to share it once I'm done if there's interest.

And before I get even more tardy with my thanks: A belated thank you to Zoƫ of Timidly Confident for honoring me with two blog awards.

Have a great Wednesday!


P.S.—Did anyone click on Flo Rida's real name in yesterday's post?

  1. I vote 3, and no I didn't click, I just laughed at how his real name is sillier than his stage name.

    1. Thank you. I was liking that one too—it was the original one I was playing with.

      And I'm not sure! Good thinking though ... I definitely need to crack that baby open.

    1. Thanks! I like 2 the least because of the My that's just hanging out by itself. And 3 the best because of the interest the different type sizes add. (You know, in case you were wondering. ;))

  5. I agree, there's nothing quite like a real book! I need a Keep Calm item that says "Keep Calm and Cook On"!

  6. Ahhh! I'm posting that book video tomorrow! A friend sent it to me last week and I loved it a lot! Did you see the one from the same couple from when they organized their shelf at home?
