Doe – Rae – Meme

I was tagged by Kim Franklin with this handwriting meme at the beginning of the month and I guess it’s time I man up and pass it along. Nothing defines a writer better than their writing…or does it? Everybody tells me I have very neat handwriting…but I tend to disagree. When given a choice, I avoid cursive and print instead. Still, I commonly find myself blocking the same letter differently, sometimes within the same sentence. Any handwriting experts out there want to tell me what that’s all about?



Anyway, here’s how this works. On a plain piece of paper jot down the following:

1. Name/Blog Name.
2. Right handed, left handed or both?
3. Favorite letters to write?
4. Least favorite letters to write?
5. Write: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.
6. Write in caps:
CRAB
HUMOR
KALEIDOSCOPE
PAJAMAS
GAZILLION
7. Favorite song lyrics?
8. Tag 7 people.
9. Any special note or drawing?

For the seven people I’ve tagged, I’m stepping outside my comfort zone a bit and selecting some bloggers that I’m relatively new to, or a couple blogs I’ve lurked on for a long time. Time to spread my wings a little wider. :) The lucky ones are Erica Mitchell-Spickard, Amanda Sablan, Liz at Cleverly Inked, Amber at The Musings of aLmYbNeNr, Sandy Shin, Lila at Lisa and Laura Write, and Jessica at The Alliterative Allomorph.

Also, don’t forget about the High Drama Blogfest/Giveaway scheduled for Saturday, August 7th as well as my Blog Recycle Station.

Have a great weekend!

  1. LOL. What are the chance of THAT? Something was whispering in my ear to drop by you blog, because, I have to admit, I've been a bit negligent - SORRY! Then your post popped up in my dashboard, and then you tagged me! WHoosh! The planets are aligning ... :o) Thanks for the tag! HA! PS: I think you writing looks quite controlled. Do you like to contrl things? LOL

  2. I think you have very neat handwriting. This comes from another with very neat handwriting--obsessive handwriting... :D

  5. You've got perty handwriting there.

    I've often been accused of being a closet psychopath because of my handwriting. Apparently it reminds people of that evil guy's handwriting in Seven.

  8. Aw, your handwriting is so pretty. Much prettier than mine.

    Have a great weekend!

    PS- I had to look up Meme in wikipedia too!

  9. Yep, very neat. I have a hard enough time reading my own without having to struggle to read others ;)

  10. I agree that you have nice handwriting. I loved your answers for #4 & #5! Ha ha.

  11. That was fun! I like your favourite and least favourite words to write!

  12. I'll have mine up tomorrow. But my handwriting is not as neat as yours. :]

    ReplyDelete
  13. I love your handwriting -- and am laughing (in agreement!) at your favorites and least favorite words. Genius!

    And thank you for tagging me. :)

  14. Thanks for not tagging me!:D

    My handwriting is impossible to read. Even I have trouble decifering it.

  15. You do have very neat, orderly handwriting. Mine goes from near printing to script leaning left, leaning right. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  16. Yeah, that's neat handwriting to me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Now you have done it, I have the worst hand writing in the world. Yep, I hold that title. Though it is something I am proud of :)

    So I plan to show it off :)

  18. I also write the same letter differently, sometimes even in the same sentence. I've noticed this especially with capital S's. My name is Susan and my husband's name is Scott, so sometimes when I sign a card or something "Susan and Scott" I'll make the two S's differently. If any handwriting experts explain that one to you, please pass it on. :)

  19. Very interesting to look at your handwriting! That neatness speaks of someone with a strong desire to control himself (both an asset and a potential liability). Yet, at the same time, your urge to form letters in a variety of ways could be your creative side in constant tension with the self-controlling side...

    Don't let an armchair psychologist like me loose on a handwriting sample. :-)

  20. How can you say you don't have a neat handwriting? It almost looks like a "handwriting font"...

    ReplyDelete
  21. You have great handwriting, DL! You should see my hubby's penmanship, you'd think he dictated to the cat. I have neat handwriting, and I generally half print, half write in cursive. Lots of letters don't connect, at any rate. Fun exercise!

    And I love that you quoted lyrics from the Boss. Ya baby, we're born to run!

    ReplyDelete
  22. BLAST! I forgot she tagged me too!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I really like your handwriting! I see a bit of creativity sneaking into those neat letters...

  24. Hey Candyland, the lyrics are by Brruuuuuuce. (Springsteen that is).
    I love that song!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love your answer to number 3.

    I do love your answer to number 3 that will keep me smiling.

  28. Tahereh ~ aw shucks! *lowers head and kicks imaginary stone*

    Terry ~ Your welcome! *makes note for next time*

    Rosslyn ~ Ewwwwwww...that makes sense. It also has me thinking about another blog post. How much control is too much?

    Lydia ~ Anybody who's a fan and recognizes BRUCE lyrics, jumps to the top of my friend list!! :)

    Summer ~ The whole blogging thing is me stepping outside my normalties. :)

  29. Your handwriting is super neat!

  30. Oh my gosh, my handwriting looks like a 6th grade boy compared to yours. I have the WORST handwriting on the planet. AND I have this weird caveman grip that I use to hold my pen. It's quite sad, actually. Thanks for the tag!

  31. You have a neat hand. My DH is a medical man, enough said (drunk spider comes to mind).

  32. Glynis ~ My wife has neat hand writing also, but she makes me write on all of the cards and letters anyway. :)
