Retro Thread Revival: TQBFJOTLD
I was looking at old KH threads (searching for a picture, which I culdn't find, heh), and I ran across this one; everyone wrote out "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog" and posted a picture.

We've got a lot of new members since then, so I thought it would be fun to revive.

Mine is the first pic on the old thread, but I'll post here anyway. Let's see yours!

and no that scarf still isn't finished

O.k....I went back and looked and alot of people then asked why they were doing it then and there doesn't seem to be an answer except something about procrastination and/or it is a sentence that uses all the letters of the alphabet!
BUT I still don't get it!!!

This is Jen being dense:...

This is fun. I'm in my school's yearbook office, which explains the post-it note I used. Please pardon my handwriting. I like to think I have guy handwriting (I'm a girl ).

(And, I also realize my hastily scrawled knitting pic is backwards, the yarn is coming from the wrong side.)

Is it bad that while reading that I was more interested in "Angelina" who has over 20,000 posts and is banned?

Mine keeps coming out blurry. Grrr. I took about 10 pics all with the same result (or too much glare), so I decided this was the best I could do.

I write 2 different ways, depending on why I'm writing, and how I feel

It's just a fun thing to do to see what everyone's handwriting looks like. Here's mine, it's a little blurry, stupid camera. I write almost exclusively in print, (except signatures) so consider it an awe inspiring moment to see an example of my cursive



Oh, I also write at an almost 90 degree angle to the paper. If I don't tear out the page the ring things in the notebook hurt my wrist, and I'm right handed so weird :P

I had to. Could. not. resist. showing. off. my. horrible. handwriting.
Really, I would have no idea what that was if I didn't know. I type for a living. Thus have forgotten handwriting. I actually forget halfway through a word how to write the next letter.

Writing? On paper? That's sooooo 20th century.
