    The pen..

    ...is one designed to write in italics. I just use it as an ordinary pen as it suits my hand. But thanks for the lovely comments. I just totally adore your writing style. I wonder what ones' handwriting says about us all?

    I gave graphology a go, and this is what I got:

    Psychic and physical depression
    anguish and weariness
    discouragement
    lack of enterprise
    laziness and cowardice
    vanity
    egotism
    selfishness
    sensitive and touchy
    nervous, irritable



    :eek:
    I think I did something wrong...

    Here's a sample of my handwriting. I can be much neater when I try, but this is about par for "everyday" writing (which I thought was more appropriate for the intent of this thread). Go ahead and analyze this one. I can take it - good news or bad.

    We all know I'm not really like that, right? :p

    They probably wrote in some form of Palmer.

    I once met a woman who worked in the returns department at a home center, and she could do this. I saw something she'd written above her station and asked about it. She asked my full name and then wrote it out. Every letter was absolutely legible, and her handwriting was smooth and flawless. I wish I still had that note.

    I don't have a scanner, but its no loss because my writing (read: printing) isn't worth seeing anyway. I can't even read my own signature; I just recognize it - it doesn't contain anything even distantly resembling any letters in the English alphabet. lol

    I'd say I do the same as Fleur, but I never write anything letters in lower-case. Probably picked that up in a high school drafting class.

    Neat-o idea for a thread, Charlie. :)

    You've reminded me of a lovely lady I once knew, DB. She and I used to joke back and forth about right- and left-handedness. She's left-handed and I'm right, and one time said the same thing to me. I told her, "Yeah, but only creatively."

    She also told me, "Lefties have rights, you know." I gave her a sly grin and answered, "And righties have lefts." :p

    Starius is posting Post-Its on Charlie's post. :D
    I hope your throat is better. :)

    I don't think most folks have signed their full real legal names....hence it being a bit more safe.....since its fairly hard to steal the identity of someone you have no name to match up with....

    handwriting isn's something normally associated with anything barring forgery.....stealing an identity from random notes about the lounge, using lounge names.....seems fairly unlikely.

    that said...if anyone wants to put a scan of a check to me for a milion bucks....I wont look the gift horse in the mouth :p
     
  17. And what do I get as the runner-up? ;) Hey, IIRC Bebop at least tells ya where he is...:D

    B, never thought I'd agree with you on anything--good point and good OPSEC, sir!

    I would never try to rain on your parade with logic. I am glad you feel so at ease. :)
