Img 2011-02-02 at 17.07.38

Today I discovered that majestic virtue was an actual anagram of ImJustCreative. So granted, not earth shattering news, and unlikely to change my life in any noticeable way, but made my day none-the-less.

Update : Then after I posted this, Gary Holmes presented me with smart cutie jive.
