The Writing’s on the Wall… of my Blog… (Meme)

So I was visiting my friend Nicole's blog (won't link because she likes her job – and not for them to read her blog) and she did a meme that involves handwriting.

Interest piqued!

I used to get failing grades in handwriting when in elementary school.  I hold writing utensils in a weird way, where I have two to three fingers on top of the pen, versus the standard one finger (I say this is a good thing since Princess Diana and Michael Jackson both supposedly held writing utensils in the same manner).  This caused my handwriting to slant in 50 different directions.  I would come home with that mushy wide-rule paper with big red slashes through it, showing my crooked illegible cursive.

I decided to embrace my handwriting, make it an art form, love it for what it was.  I love my handwriting, and I LOVE to write.  I write in journals not to pen my thoughts, but for the relaxing meditative results of pen to paper.  I prefer old-school college-rule spiral notebooks (the more subjects the better) and a black pen with a medium tip that just glides across the paper.  Seriously, I dig my Bic.

So the meme is – write the answers to these questions on a piece of paper:

  1. What's your name/your blogger name?
  2. What's your blog's name/URL?
  3. Write “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.” (original meme forgot the word brown)
  4. Favorite quote?
  5. Your Favorite song?
  6. Your favorite band/singers?
  7. Anything else you want to say?
  8. Tag three to five other people.

As you see above (if you can read my handwriting), I am tagging everyone who wants to participate.  I would love to see your handwriting!  Blogging is a great way to connect with fab people from across the globe, but we rarely get to know regular in person things about our blogging friends – what we sound like, how we laugh, what our handwriting looks like.  Gosh in this day and age, how many of us still write on a daily basis?

I want to know you better!  If you do this meme, come back here and let me know so I can get to know you better!

    You have really nice handwriting !
    I will be posting mine later tonight.
    I DO LOVE to write but very seldom do it – I know it’s so impersonal that we don’t even take the time to write cards or notes anymore….

    I dislike writing quite a lot, so I’m probably not going to do this. Had to comment, though–your handwriting is gorgeous!

    Yay! Can’t wait to see your entries! I usually don’t do memes but because this one was so unique I just had to participate!

    Wow, what an interesting meme! You’ve gotten me interested as well – I think I’ll have a shot at it!
