So, I'm sitting here on a Wednesday night with no CM episode to ramble on about. Got a few fic ideas, can't figure out which to start.Staring at the third Snowpocalypse in three weeks. And, no grad school acceptances yet, while the job gets ever more drama-filled. Hoping that one of the results of the snowstorm is not the cancellation of Flogging Molly at the Electric Factory. An early birthday present from me, to me. Because yeah, turning the big quarter century next week. (Aiee.) So, not a lot has changed, and my life is filled mostly with drama dire mostly only to me. ;-p But, I have new Pratchett to read, including Night Watch. (Yaay).

So, good time for une Meme, methinks, yes? Yes.

1. Write your lj username.
2. Right handed or left handed?
3. Which letters do you like to write the most?
4. Write "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
5. Tag 5 people. [ profile] melliyna ,[ profile] kelachrome , [ profile] katewallace [ profile] jack_infinitude , [ profile] phantomcranefly 

(Hee. As you can see, handwriting was never one of my strong points. That and gym were the regular black marks on my report card throughout school. They tried to teach me cursive in 5th grade; it didn't take. I really feel sorry for the poor TFs who had to grade my college exams.)

And, finally- my sophomore honors history teacher is going to go to jail for attempted arson and threats w/ an ax. (Apparently there were prescription drug interactions involved, and it's all very sad and sordid.) I remember him as a nice, funny, slightly intense guy, who managed through a whole year of a class filled with   snarky little G&T bastards like me. (For which respect must be paid.) It makes me sad, and confused. And I really hope he gets some help, and that his life goes upwards from here.

A family friend who used to encourage my writing and computer programming and chat with me about stuff and got me work experience that led to my current career and was generally an all-round charming person... then tried to murder his wife and it turned out he'd been abusing her physically and psychologically for years and years. So, um, yeah. Cognitive dissonance is weird-making.

Thanks for the 'tag'...but I have no scanner (is sad :( ) or access to one, that I know of. But thanks for the thought!

Sorry to hear about your teacher. The summer between "Brownies" and "Girl Scouts" , my Brownie leader got into a drunken argument with her (equally drunken) husband and stabbed him to death. Then we moved and I never found out what happened to the rest of the family.

You have such interesting j's, and your handwriting is not at all what I would expect. :)

...huh. :) On a related J note: This is kind of a problem when I have to write 5s at work. (Which happens quite a lot.) I can never seem to keep my attention long enough to do them well. I find myself having to erase and rethink them, so that other people can read them. (Progress!)

I've seen multiple examples of my parents' and grandparents' handwriting, and I think I got a genetic whammy of all the worst bits.The keyboard was the best thing that ever happened to me.

Mine was nice and legible until I hit high school, and then it started looking like my mother's. She has stereotypical doctor handwriting. I think there's something to your theory.
