Penmanship Meme.

The awesome Sandy Shin tagged me for the Penmanship Meme on Friday. The rule is to do the meme on paper and scan it (or take a picture if you don't have a scanner). Here are the items:

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
HUMOUR
KALEIDOSCOPE
PAJAMAS
GAZILLION
7. Favorite song lyrics?
8. Tag 7 people.
9. Any special note or drawing?

After an epic battle with my scanner here is the hand-written version.





All I can say is that my writing seems to have gotten worse the older I get. Like Sandy I blame the frantic scribbling lecture notes at University.

If you can't see the names of the people in the list I've tagged they are:

Tahereh, Renae, Bethany Elizabeth, Stina, Amparo, Shannon McMahon and Justine Dell.

Hope you have fun doing this too. :)

haha, very cool. You have nice handwriting - whatya talking about?

Vicki Rocho said...

I love this little tag...Seeing handwriting is so much more personal than typed words on a screen. AND I am seriously jealous of your drawing! Please lie to me and tell me he was already printed on your paper!

Thanks for checking in on your blackjack hand!

Bethany Elizabeth said...

Aww teddy bear!! :) Thanks for tagging me, I'll definitely do it - as soon as my irrational fear of my printer/scanner clears up. Eh, I'll have my dad help me. And I liked those lyrics!!
Also, you have really nice handwriting - way better than mine. My handwriting looks like a guy's. *sigh*

Matthew Rush said...

What a cool idea! Thanks for sharing Lindsay.

Jen said...

I love the bear!!! It's super cute Lindsay!!! I know my scanner was giving me problems too! I almost gave up! I like your handwriting, it's very nice!

BTW only good things to say about Matched... I'll keep you up to date, but so far when November rolls around you will want a copy!

Theresa Milstein said...

My writing has gotten worse, but I like your writing.

Did you draw that adorable bear? I love it!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Thanks for tagging me. :)

Oh, that teddy's adorable. It's going to be a challenge to top that . . . or come even close.

SHIVER arrived yesterday. I'm impressed. It takes longer for a book to come up from the States.

Jaydee Morgan said...

My writing has definitely deteriorated as I get older. I so love your little teddybear...what a great job!

Joanne Brothwell said...

Looks fun - I'll give it a whirl!

Amparo Ortiz said...

Yay! I got tagged! Thanks!

May I say that I envy your teddy-bear-drawing skills??

Tahereh said...

awww i love it!! and i love the teddybear!!

Christina Lee said...

aww well I love your little bear!

Renae said...

Too fun! I needed an idea for a post. Thanks! Your handwriting is much better than mine. Trust me I get reviewed by eight year olds on a daily basis.
Be sure to check out my blog tomorrow, I'm giving you an award for being so awesome!

Julie Musil said...

That is so cool. And, you are quite the artist!

Sandy Shin said...

I love love love your handwriting. It's just so flowy and natural and lovely. And that bear! *huggles* So adorable. :D

Jemi Fraser said...

Love it - especially the teddy :)

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Jessica. Thanks. It did used to be a lot neater though. Promise. :)

Vicki. I agree. Handwriting is so much more 'real' the typed words. Okay, I'll lie about the teddy. lol.

Bethany. Yay, glad you up for the challenge. Dads are so handy for helping with technical stuff aren't they? :)

Matthew. You're welcome. It was fun...after the scanner worked. lol.:)

Jen. Aww, thanks. Glad you liked the bear. I love it too. I can't wait till November. I want a copy of MATCHED now. *sniff* ;)

Theresa. Thanks. I swear my writing was neater when I was younger. Yeah, I drew the little bear. :)

Stina. Yay! So happy you got SHIVER. Can't wait to see your penmanship post.

Jaydee. I think it's a weird thing that happens. The older we get, the scrappier our handwriting gets. Maybe it's the curse of the computer age. We don't need to write anymore.
Hmmm. That was a bit deep. lol.

Joanne. Yeah, it is fun. Looking forward to reading yours. :)

Amparo. Yay! Looking forward to reading yours soon.
Aww, thanks.

Tahereh. Aww, thanks. I know yours is going to be awesomer. :)

Christina. Thanks. He's such a cute little guy I had to share him with you all. :)

Renae. Always happy to help with a post topic. :) I bet eight year olds can be brutal. lol.
Aww, you gave me an award. Thank you. I'll check it out tomorrow.

Julie. Glad you liked it. Thanks, I love to draw. :)

Sandy. Thanks for the kind words. I loved your handwriting too. I think I should call the bear Huggles. That's such a cool word. :)

Jemi. Glad you liked it. My little teddy is feeling well loved.:)

Kimberly Franklin said...

Your handwriting is pretty! I got tagged to do this too... should be interesting. :)

Angela Ackerman said...

You're writing is so neat! Mine looks like a kid did it who was all hopped up on crayons. LOL

Shannon said...

Eep! The tag! :) Hrmm...I need to see if I can get that scanner to work.

Thanks for thinking of me! Heart.

Lydia Kang said...

That's a stellar Teddy Bear, my friend.

Your handwriting looks like Sandy's. It kind of looks like mine on a good day.

Hmm, maybe we all have something in common?
