time waster, but in the best way

I think I may have emailed or blogged this before, if so let's revisit the genius that is wordle.

There's color options too, but I prefer the graphic quality of these in black and white.

I enjoyed this so much, I did three different ones in three different fonts. Oh yeah, they have a bunch of fonts to choose from as well.

Found out about this from Gregory at Apartment Therapy LA.
