Penmanship Tag

I was tagged by Melody from Melody's Reading Corner for this great penmanship meme. Thanks, Melody, it was lots of fun!

Once upon a time, I had such good penmanship that store clerks would take the time to look at my checks and compliment me on my handwriting. I used to do lots of drafting, and my drawings and blueprints (pre-CAD days) were amazingly clean, and my printing was beautiful. I loved doing calligraphy.

Then I went to graduate school and started my doctoral research. There just wasn't time to make sure each letter was perfectly formed. Then I started working in a profession that required so much writing I would go through two or three pencils a day. And although I have long since earned my degree and now work mostly online, my penmanship never recovered.


Okay, enough about that. Here's the meme.

1. Write down who tagged you.

2. Answer these:
a. Your name / user name / pseudonym
b. Right-handed or left-handed?
c. Your favorite letters to write
d. Your least favorite letters to write
e. Write "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog."

3. Tag five other people.

That last item says, "If you want to play along, consider yourself tagged!"

I love your handwriting! Mind isn't half bad, and I was tagged for this meme by Melody also, but all scanners withing 2 miles of me are not working (as well as my computer for the moment). I am quite technically challenged these days. One downside to my crashed hard drive is all my pictures are GONE. I am hoping they are retrievable eventually, but in the meantime I am frantically searching for pictures that are still on my camera!!! I must not miss Wordless Wednesday!

What a clever idea!

I have been told by some that I have nice handwriting, but I don't think it is any great shakes. I used to write everything --- I would even hand write a piece before I would finalize it in Word. I have since learned how to "think" at the computer, and I have added numerous hours to my day :)

I have two ways I write, my I'm paying attention to what I'm writing handwriting and my OMG I better write that down really fast! handwriting!

You still have beautiful penmanship!
Alea's comment cracked me up...I'm the same way.

Thanks everyone!

Alea: Sometimes I write out the grocery list so fast that even I can't read it once I get to the store! My husband always teases me about that.

Alea 2/28/09, 1:58 PM  

It usually happens to me at work on the phone or during a meeting!

You have beautiful handwriting. I start out that way and by the end,it all squiggly lines and abbreviations.

You have really nice handwriting!

Thanks for playing, Beth!
I like your handwriting, very nice! And I loved it that you wrote three different styles for No. 2e. :)

I used to work for 4 doctors; I can read everything you wrote. =)
