|But how cool is it that they changed the reflection in his sunglasses to fit the place it was playing? This is the Norwegian poster, with the ski jump Holmenkollen (the old one *sob*)|
|Though he did have a fancy signature which is what makes him the link to today's topic...|
|I have no idea who this one was, other than what you can see in the picture. A picture that was taken in Arlington, VA.|
Rather, the Hancock I was thinking of is the following:
John HancockAnd the John Hancock in question is of course our Hancock number two up here. So it wasn't entirely far off to include him. (And the superhero Hancock is named after him as well. Sort of. As is probably Hancock number three, but this is just a guess on my part.)
A person's signature.
[After John Hancock (from the prominence of his signature on the Declaration of Independence).]
Anyway, it was the signature aspect I was getting at (though none of this technically have anything to do with my signature. I'm making some very questionable connections today...). You see, I've been tagged, by Vatche from The Student Writer's Mind. The challenge goes as follows:
Write down (by hand!) on a piece of paper the following:
1. Name/Blog Name
2. Right handed, left handed, or both?
3. Favorite letters to write
4. Least favorite letters to write
5. Write out "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog"
6. Write in CAPS:
7. Favorite song lyrics
8. Tag 7 people
9. Whatever else strikes your fancy
And here is my attempt (notice the GREEN ink. I don't always write in green, but I do prefer it.)
|If it's hard to read (though if that is hard to read, you might have trouble reading this as well...), you can probably click on it to enlarge it. I think. I'm farly sure, actually.|
And just to prove to Leanne that I have been knitting (but that it isn't worth showing anyone - which is why I am showing it. Logical, no?)
|The "before" shot of my notebook. Which also includes the view from my window (not much) and my knitting (even less much).|
As for passing the tag on, I have picked a few:
Natasha at Coffee Rings Everywhere because even though I have known her for years I don't think I have ever seen her handwriting. About time!
Tami at Confessions of a Watery Tart because she writes all her novels longhand in the bath tub! Clearly there must be something special about her handwriting.
Leanne who resisted the epidemic blog virus the rest of us caught a while back, until we lured her in through collaborative blogging over at Burrowers, Books and Balderdash. She still hasn't established her own blog, but I'd be more than happy to post the result of this challenge here if she'll agree to do it ;) I have seen Leanne's handwriting, but she is one of the few people I know who would get to cross off "both" for number two up there, so it should be interesting...
These are not seven people, so if you think you have a beautiful/weird/show-and-tellable handwriting and/or Hancock, I suggest you pick it up even if you weren't tagged ;)
Aaaaaand of course this wasn't supposed to post until morning... Meh. Alright, this is officially my Monday post. It's Monday, I say. Not Sunday. Monday. Monday, Monday. Did you know that in Norwegian we don't write the name of the days with capital letters? So Monday would be monday (or actually, mandag, since we also have a name for it, not just a punctuation rule...). This is why it is difficult for Norwegians to remember to capitalize the first letter of weekdays when learning English, and it is why we tend to do it in Norwegian as well after having written English for a while.
Have I convinced you that it is Monday yet?
