Handwriting Thread

Following on from the Technology Killed Handwriting thread, I thought I'd start one to see how Dwellars look away from their keyboards.

I've started the ball rolling below, and bizarrely it feels more personal than taking a picture of my nipple!

My text is simply the front page of today's Guardian and isn't intended to make a statement.

You need to fix the white balance on your camera. It screwed the color all up--see how the paper looks purple instead of white?

The only handy exhibits that didn't have incriminating personal info. (I wanted to post something I had actually done, not something specially written for the purpose.)

This makes me want to find my old college notebooks. My nickname in college was 'Nappyqueen'. I don't think I was awake for a full 50 min lecture, ever. My notes are great. Nice neat semi-outline style, getiing messier, messier, then ZZZZZZZzzzzzzz........



{Blank space to fill in later from friends notes}

Ha HA HA!!! I will *so* look for some examples. It's great.

I second the notion that all non-hand-written posts (like this one also) get zzzapped!

I was being a smartass--what a suprise, eh? I assumed the paper was actually purple. Did you use a flash to take the picture?
