The Handwriting Tag (plus bonus news)

I have six, no eight, books to tell you about, so I'm going to do something completely frivolous and do this fun handwriting tag thing.  Esther at Chapter Adventures did it the other day and I thought I'd follow suit.

This is a very simple meme: write down your answers on a sheet of paper, take a picture, and post it.

I hope you can read this!

I sure hope it's legible.  It comes out kind of small no matter what I do.

I'm not tagging anyone because I just never do that.  But I would love to see anybody do their own version!  Please consider yourself invited.

And now some other news: for the last few years I've participated in a fundraiser for our county's literacy program.  It's a trivia night with three-person teams competing over three rounds.  My team, the Bibliomaniacs, has won first place for the past two years, and we're aiming for a three-peat tomorrow.  Wish us luck!  And if you're local and want to cheer us on, the Trivia Bee is at 6:30 tomorrow (Friday!) at the Big Room at Sierra Nevada.  Tickets are $30 and go to the literacy program!

ooh, you have that nice italic handwriting, like Robertson Davies. I wish I could do that! And good luck with your trivia fundraiser, it sounds like fun.

What lovely handwriting you have!!! From which song are those lyrics from? They sound so pretty.

Thanks! :) The song is Heavenly Pop Hit by the Chills. Enjoy this video:

Cool, thanks, Jean!

Ohhh! It's so beautiful! Hilarious answer to the emoji question hahaha. I hadn't heard of MST3K, looks like fun. Also, I have no idea what the silly message means, my German has definitely disappeared from my mind, oops.

The best of luck for you and your team! :D

The funny thing is, I did just get a phone about 4 days ago that has emojis. They are kind of knock-off versions and I don't really use them, but they're there. I sent an Easter Island head to my daughter.

The German is a translation of "Jabberwocky." 'Twas brillig and the slithy tove did gyre and gimble in the wabe; all mimsy were the borogoves, and the mome raths outgrabe." So it's nonsense in German too. :)
