Wordle girl


The above word cloud is courtesy of Wordle.

I cannot get enough of that silly gadget. To have your work instantaneously analyzed and transformed into a piece of literary artwork is like masturbation for writers. After Alex Pruteanu introduced me to it yesterday, I fooled around Wordling this blog, old articles, even my writing bio.

The source text for today's Wordle cloud was lifted from an article wherein I recount a professional "girlie" photo session, which explains the photo on the left (yes, that is your humble hostess).

You can read the full text of the article here.

Erin, you are hot! Your legs seriously are a mile long in this picture. What a fun experience.

I wish my legs were a mile long. Must be an illusion. I'm only 5'1", but thanks for the compliment!

O'Brien, you have some hot legs.

As for the rest of it, I'm thinking I should make something that would take images of some of my fave babes and take all my favourite parts (some belly buttons, a few underboobs, collarbones, backs, ass dimples, etc) and display them.

I think it would be called Broadle.

I was curious about your writing yesterday and decided to find something random on your site to read...strangely enough, it was that article that I read. I really enjoyed it, especially what you said about being able to fully trust the photographer because she knew how to find beauty. Beautiful.

Well, that's a relief...I thought that image was the word capture I'd have to enter to leave a comment! :)

It was a bad idea for me to go to Wordle. I am going to waste so much time there. Very cool, thanks!

The picture must be really old.

The photo was taken in January 2009, about a month before the article ran on Feb. 11, 2009.
