How's Your Handwiting?

09:46 sunrise
15:55 sunset

Apparently they don't teach cursive in elementary schools anymore. Yeah, I don't know who "they" are and I am not entirely sure which schools I am referring to, but it's a rumour I heard. Well, more than a rumour. There are lots of articles on the subject - Google away if you are interested in more than just this one. I have never had beautiful penmanship (blame it on my left-handedness) but I hate to think of handwriting as a dying art. I mean really - would you send a typewritten thank-you note?

This little tagging game made its way to me on flickr yesterday. Here are my results (it helps if you click to make the image larger):

1. Your Name/ Username
2. Right or Left Handed
3. Favourite Letters to Write
4. Least Favorite Letters to Write
5. Write "The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog."
6. Tag 6 Contacts

Oh I saw this yesterday on flickr, maybe artisterin? Thanks for reminding me, I'd thought about doing it but got busy being stressed out.

Maybe "they" are teaching how to text instead

I used to have nice penmanship until my Grade 2 teacher tried to make me write right-handed. She was an awful teacher and now I have awful penmanship
