The other day I promised one of my pals that I would post another link to a website where you can create your own stuff…
Today the inspiration is from good ole “stiff-upper-lip” Blighty-ness!
Back in 1939, after the outbreak of the first World War, the British Government decided that morale-boosting posters would be a positive addition to the British people’s mental resources. The most famous being the “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster, headed with the symbol of George VI’s crown.
Now, here’s the exciting bit….
There is a magical place where you can create your own versions of the poster!
I was mulling over what would be appropriate wording to relate it to my life and conditions. In the end, the first one that came to mind was the one that was truly ‘me’… When I don’t know something I go away and learn about it, whether it’s about my health or any other random interest. I spend lots of my sparse and infrequent on-the-planet-and-almost-upright time on the laptop hooked up to the ‘net. I have a hard-drive full of research papers and articles on CRPS, Dysautonomia, Tai Chi and various other, seemingly random, topics…
So this poster says the most about me, and makes me laugh at the truth of it….
But it’s far too much fun just to stop there, of course, so here’s a few more….
And the most terrifying of all……
Of course a fat load of good I’d be in a fight…. “Can you come at me in slow mo’? I don’t do fast. Oh yes, and if you could just wait a few minutes, I’m feeling a bit lightheaded”. Yeeeaaah, I’m truly terrifying, me.
If you fancy inventing some of your own posters, then just pop over to this address….
