Congrats. I love it when a plan comes together.

This might well be one of my stupidest posts in a long, long time, but I finally have a method for writing a Capital E that feels natural. Well, natural if I've been practicing it recently. I do have to watch my form still, but this has been a source of constant irritation for a long time now.

And now, on to other pressing matters.

Describe this method. Don't give us some half-assed teaser.

How do you write your small As?

Like this:

I start with an "L" motion, keeping a fairly sharp corner at the bottom. Then I add the middle and upper tines of the E. So, it goes

L. then middle, then upper.

For a while, I would start with an "I", then start from the top again, which wasn't bad aesthetically speaking but got sloppy when I was rushed (Yes CalTex, I know. pleb. Thanks.) At times I also adopted the reverse '3' method which I hated but used since I could get a little more speed out of it. Then I decided I hated that one terribly as well. It probably helps that I'm deliberately slowing myself down, too.

I'd do it the second way if I were talented, but I make do with the first method. I do tend to use ampersands liberally in my handwritten correspondence. Although if I see myself collapsing the top loop like I tend to do, I take a moment and try to practice myself out of that tendency.

My daughter draws her Es with 4, 5, sometimes 6 horizontal lines, and it's the cutest fucking thing in the world.

This is a few days after the fact, but I went to see The Who at Oakland Arena the other night, and it was absolutely fantastic. We had great seats, the sound quality was fantastic, Roger Daltry pretty much sounds like shit, and might have lip-synced Love Reign O'er Me, but overall a phenomenal show. They played Quadrophenia start-to-finish, which was amazing, and finished up with a greatest hits mini-set that completely rocked. I kept running into people I know, including a cute young woman from my last company who was really excited to see me and gave me a big hug that made me feel all strange inside smile.gif

Did they have 300 people on stage with them including dancing, singing girls obscuring their actually performance?
post #28467 of 45287
No.

I don't have kids, so no, I haven't. I have heard some of the They Might Be Giants kids stuff, though. Good stuff.

Does he wear his shirt unbuttoned to the waist on this show?
