Cooper wants a cheezburger

Cooper wants a cheezburger


This is my submission for ds106 visual assignment “What’s the Meme?”.  I call it “Cooper wants a cheezburger”.  I am a huge fan of lolcats and thought why not get my own pets into the action?  While I was trying to complete yesterday’s Daily Create, Cooper decided he wanted to help out…and help he did!  I cropped and added text to the photo in Photoshop Elements.  In case you don’t know how to get the font right, let me share what I learned today.  The font is called Impact.  The black outline is created by:

1)Selecting the “Layer” menu option

2)Selecting “Layer Style”

3)Selecting “Style Settings”

4)Choosing the “Stroke” option

Once you have selected “Stroke”, you can make the outline thicker by increasing the px size.  There are websites where you can do the same thing, but I wanted to know how to do it myself!

Might have to get Cooper that cheezburger, although I think he might prefer chikin 🙂

Second post…ever!!!!

Since very few people saw the first post, I am being completely unoriginal with my title.  In fact, I may just continue this trend indefinitely.  It certainly simplifies things considerably!  That being said, my mind is all a flutter with ideas for this blog.  I think I need the weekend to gather my thoughts (and pics – can you say Pinterest?) to put together an actual post.  These first two are really just me getting familiar with the format.  I consider them “practice” posts.  That’s right, I’m talkin’ bout practice!  I gotta say, that Allen Iverson joke never gets old….to me!  Later tater!


First post…ever!

Hello everyone!  My name is Jen and this is my first blog post.  I have been thinking about a blog for sometime, but it was always one of those things that I just felt I didn’t have time for.  Not that I have anymore time now, but I figured what the heck!  You probably want an explanation for the title “The Door is a Jar”.  When I was younger, one of my friends Mom had a car that would talk to you when things were left open.  Things such as the trunk or…you guessed it, the door.  The car would literally say “The door is ajar”.  Being young and silly, I would add the line “and your hand is a foot!”.  I know, it makes no sense, but it made me smile then.  It still makes me smile now.  Welcome to my blog.  I hope you enjoy!
