TNR all the way, baby

Liana Brooks posted this fun quiz (well, fun for writerly nerds like me) she saw over on Janet Reid's blog that answers the all-important question: What Font Are You?

Really, you should take it. Some of the answer options are funny.

I'm Times New Roman. According to the site, this means "Some call you timeless--others call you a snob [bummer]. Either way, you're a class act all around [thanks] . Just don't take yourself too seriously [ok]."

Afterward, you can click through to see what other fonts were possible.

At least I'm not Comic Sans because I totally hate that font. Now I can't believe I just said that. Sorry. Fonts make me vehement sometimes.

LOL!

At least you aren't the industry standard Helvetica! I think I'd prefer to be snobby TNR than the common Helvetica.

But my favorite font for writing is Garamound. And then I have a whole list of "designer" fonts. You can get free ones at dafont.com- it's an amazing resource for newsletters and family holiday letters. Or party invites :o)

Have a lovely (albeit cold) weekend. I don't know what part of AL you're in, but down by the river it's all of 34 and I am shivering to death!

... and here I was already planning out my garden *sniff* It looks like I'll have to wait a few more motnhs for flowers.

Like "Just_Me," Justus, is Helvetica.

"You're like an industry standard.
Classic. Reliable. Okay, maybe a bit
boring. But you don't let the haters
get you down-after all, you've still
got plenty of friends who think you're
the best."

My favorite font is Garamond.

Oh no- maybe I need to change my blog font! :)

Little Bevie is Edwardian Script.

"A true romantic at heart, nothing gets your juices flowing more than the promise of flowery, fluttery love. Can you hear those violins playing? They’re playing just for you, baby."

Not bad, but I prefer the harp.

I can't speak for the acting (having never seen you act) but you are classy, AC. No question on that.

Thanks for the fun link!

Li and Justus--I love Garamond, too. I use it in an alum newsletter I design. So classy and elegant ;)

Becky--I had that same thought!

Bevie--thanks! And the Edwardian Script was one of my favorite other fonts on there.

I never thought of myself as a romantic, until I saw that my font was Edwardian. Funny thing is, I've never really cared about fonts. My computers were always on default to TNR, so that's what I used, that was until Microsoft Vista defaulted to some weird font that I had to change because it was hurting my eyes.

I'm Helvetica, ha! Although in reality I'm a fan of Century Gothic and Garamond...

I've always liked New Century Schoolbook. Although the quiz says I'm Times (and NO I did not mark that I am in bed at 9 pm on saturday night with my 4 cats. I only have 1 cat.)
