What Do You do When It's late at Night?

What do you do when it's late at night, and you can't sleep? Last night, whilst the house was quiet and I was wide awake, I browsed through a few of my favourite blogs, and read Inklore's entry about Wordle...wordle? What's that when it's at home?

Of course, curious creature that I am, I had to take a look. Just a bit of fun, but it's quite therapeutic! You simply enter some text, or a blog URL, and it creates random images for you, based on the text you input and picking out various random words. I have to say that I did it a few times, but it's simple to just re-randomize the image, and you can remove words if you wish. There's also a gallery to store the image, and rifle through other people's results. A good (albeit pointless?) way to pass five or ten minutes!

Oh yes, these are so much fun, I stumbled it on another blog and made one right away! Such a great effect, this kind of things seems so much out of reach when you are not handy with photoshop and such!
