Handwriting Meme

August 30, 2010

I haven’t done any of this sort of meme on here before, but this one looked like fun to me. I’m not tagging anyone, but if you read my blog (thank you for reading), and you want to do this one, consider yourself tagged. I’d of course like to see your handwriting meme instances, too.

Here’s how it goes:

1.) handle / name

2.) right handed or left handed?

3.) least favorite letters to write

4.) favorite letters to write.

5.) Write, “The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.”

6.) Write the following words in all capital letters: CRAB, HUMOR, KALEIDOSCOPE, PAJAMAS, GAZILLION

7.) Favorite song lyrics

8.) Tag people.

9.) Any special note or drawing.

Goldfinch; Kanye Interrupts

April 3, 2010

focal length: 432mm, aperture: f/3.5, shutter: 1/640 sec., distance 2 meters, location: Groton, CT

Gold Finch and Kanye West (click image to view larger).

I saw this goldfinch (among other birds) at my in-laws’ feeder this morning. Kanye came out of nowhere and interrupted the moment. Note the transition from winter to summer plumage happening on the goldfinch; something’s going on with Kanye’s plumage, too.

Last week I stopped in my hometown in Ohio to visit my family on the way back from the American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting in San Francisco. My brother, Adam,¬† and I were explaining memes to my mom, and I stumbled upon this MoneyFace meme on Adam and I had a lot of fun making a few of our own moneyfaces using Photobooth and the built in iSight on my MacBook. (I believe at this point that approximately two thirds of my blog readers also use Macbooks and could do this immediately upon reading this post; so if you make some, please post them in the comments or post a link. I’d like to see how they turn out.) We used US and Canadian $5’s here.
