Messing Around



created at TagCrowd.com




Just playing around with word clouds. The one from above is taken from my recently completed novel, Plundered Booty's, introduction.

And this one comes from the last chapter.

And since I'm just screwing around today here is a cell phone snapshot of my highly nutritional lunch.

A handful of pills for my bout with poison ivy, a package of chocolate donuts, and a good Ol' DP to wash it all down. Yum.

That doesn't look like a lunch so much as an intervention waiting to happen.

Off to check out that tag cloud thing.

Bina said...

Those word clouds are very cool! Do you just pick words to put on there or does some program do it randomly?

And uh, lunch? Hmmmmm..

Your old enough. I'm not saying nothing!

Jerseygirl89 said...

Wow, switch the DP to Diet Pepsi and you've just covered what I ate for breakfast for years.

Melissa Marsh said...

Well, you have maybe a few food groups there...hehehe.

Jenster said...

Is that the lunch of champions??

if you would just put M & M s in that dr pepper, you could delete those donuts and get the same effect....

OMG Travis...is THAT how you maintain your girlish figure? Where is your meatasaurs pride for crying out loud?!

Did you get my "fish story"? I thought of you and couldn't resist. You love to fish and hunt so maybe coastal california is the place for you! Wild.

Monnik said...

Dammit, Travis! I'm trying to eat healthily and you go and post food p*rn on your blog. I LOVE those chocolate wax donuts.

(That word thing is cool. What a neat idea!)

Beth said...

Your lunch makes my lunch (a PBJ sandwich) look like it belongs right up there on the Canada Food Guide.
I feel so virtuous (although not much healthier).

Lana Gramlich said...

Donuts & Dr. Pepper? Isn't that, like, the breakfast of champions or something? If it's not, it SHOULD be. ;) *L*

Patti said...

are you taking notes from my blog on what to eat?! i am working my way thru a bag, a big-ass bag, of powedered donuts...yummers.

Fortunately, recent scientific studies indicate that chocolate may increase life expectancy.

The fact that the studies were funded entirely by The Hershey Company is essentially irrelevant to most of us.

Travis said...

I like that word cloud thingy!

I had a fantastic steak, bean, and cheese burrito from Baja Fresh for lunch. Yum-OH!

Janna Qualman said...

Wow, that takes me back. Every morning my senior year of high school I had a six-pack of chocolate gems and a can of Dr Pepper. Good times. :)

holly said...

dp ROCKS! although i drink the unleaded version. d'oh i want a donut!

preTzel said...

WHAT? NO MEAT?!? For shame Travis.

I just found out that I might have "gout" - a form of arthritis. So I get to take some pills that make me loopy, nauseated, and possible bleeding from places you shouldn't. Oh, and it can cause a FATAL HEART ATTACK OR STROKE! (Yep, they capped it on the instructions.) Oh joy.

I love word clouds. They are soothing.

debra said...

Breakfast of Champions indeed. As for me, I'm a fruit and coffee kind of girl.

Titania Starlight said...

Well if you have poison ivy then that lunch can be excused. I cannot remember the last time I had a good lunch like that. :o)~

Barbara Martin said...

You ought to start bringing "rabbit" food to work, Travis: lettuce, celery and carrots. That will make you feel full, and by the end of the week you won't be having those sugar cravings. Very bad for you.

The word associations for your book look interesting Who is fiona? Are your readers allowed to know?

sybil law said...

I was all into the pills until I realized they were not FUN pills. :)
Your book looks lovely!
(I have to take pills, too, if I get poison ivy. Actually, I had it SO BAD one year - wait that was poison oak - anyway, that I swear I am now immune to it. And before that immunity, I would swell like a balloon and it would spread everywhere in nanoseconds.
I feel for ya, Travis.)

Junosmom said...

Looking forward to reading your book. I'm sure it has more substance than your "lunch".

DrillerAA said...

Chocolate covered donuts!!! I love those things. That's not a lunch, that's a feast fit for a pirate.

Joshua said...

if thats not an American lunch, i dont know what is lol :)

March to the Sea said...

i love the pill bottle touch..that is great..heheh "here is my lunch" awesome.

Robyn said...

LOL! Those are some interesting words...hmmm can't wait for the book! And the for as the lunch...hmmm it does count on the pyrmaid somewhere. Right?!

yellowdog granny said...

Dr Pepper...nectar of the goddess's...
can you get Dublin Dr Pepper in your neck of the woods?..If not let me know and I'll send you one...

angel, jr. said...

I love those donuts!

CamiKaos said...

have you seen the twitter clouds?

J. L. Krueger said...

Lunch? Where's the beef?

I suppose your lunch is not as bad as the vodka and oreos I ate for breakfast one Sunday morning many years ago.

Danette Haworth said...

Ha! What a lunch! I myself exist on rice cakes and Monster when deep in a manuscript.

BTW, Travis, you are a winner of Violet Raines! Come on over for details!

Charles Gramlich said...

Wow, that lunch will really keep meat on the old bones.

Katrina said...

Hi Travis,

The pills--I'll skip and take my own brand of medicinal crap. The chocolate covered donuts are probably not on my meager diet list. The Dr Pepper is right up my alley--10, 2 and 4.
