comment Introduce random imperfections to typeset' text
It is very much related, yet relies heavily upon external tools (ie. not reading the font directly but from a cut-up SVG file). I'll follow the answer and see if I can get more then just single words from it but rather extend it to whole pages, but my guess would be I'll fail (because of my own lack of knowledge, not because of the answer to being very thorough!).

comment Introduce random imperfections to typeset' text
Interesting idea. That, combined with a random placement of those "specs" and using a font that is a bit uneven to start with would be a good start. Maybe even the blotches can be created randomly? (God, I am being shown how little I actually know every day again...).

comment Inserting my `pdfbook` workflow directly into the LaTeX source
That's funny - I've been on that page but mistakenly assumed it had something to do with the pdfbook commandline toll I unsuccessfully used today (it stubbornly ignores my --signature setting). I'm reading your page as we speak. Thanks!

comment Inserting my `pdfbook` workflow directly into the LaTeX source
Yes, I know - but I'd much rather have a non-proprietary workflow (plus, I need this to be scriptable on/from the commandline).

It's a very lifelike problem, ie. nothing you'd find in a book ;)

comment Going through permutations of nouns and verbs
I have added my current "setup" above (she can't read Serif fonts well yet and things need to be a little bigger with more linespacing) - would there be a way to randomize the lines? The current way of doing it (though perfect!) has n lines each start with the same noun, randomizing them would make the reading experience more interesting I suppose (plus - less guessing and more actual reading if I remember my Morse Code practice correctly (which, If I might say so, puts "learning to read" in a whole new perspective.)).

If that is considered an "incomplete draft" the finished product will be amazing. PS. The @-Thingie doesn't work with your name for me. Time to head to some meta stackexchange site... Happy easter!

That goddess-comment might be read wrongly. You know what I mean.

comment Add (n) working days to a specific date
You are the goddess of LaTeX. Thank you! I have added a little variable \newcommand{\FristinWerktagen}{10} ("DeadlineInWorkingDays") which I define at the top and in your command and I have turned \thisyear-\thismonth-\thisday into \thisday.\thismonth.\thisyear (my inner nerd prefers the first, but real people need to read this ;) and it's perfect. Again, Thank you!
