I hate writing the number 5. My hand just seems to go into a spasm every time and it goes all pear - shaped. So, I just don't like it very much. I don't like writing Worcestershire either.

I want to know if there are certain numbers or words that you dislike to write. Typing doesn't count, by the way.

On the flip side - tell me what word you do enjoy writing. For example - Merseyside just flows from the pen for me.

(sorry about the county naming thing - I spend a lot of my time writing about counties in my job)

I have such bad handwritting I can never make it look like a 1. Its either a T or 7 when i put a head on it. Or if I just do a straight verticle line people think its and l or i.

Dotting 'I's. I haven't done it for years....7 is a problem for me too....looks like a Z or an I when I do it so I put a line through the middle.

Please don't ban the number 5! I can only wake up with the clock ending in a five or 0... you'd kill me!

Anyway, I hate cursive Qs and Zs. Ban them.

I hate cursive in general. The only cursive I know is my signature. I also can't write certain words in lower case or rather have difficulty doing so. WHeN I wRite, it Looks Like this. I Am Not JokiNg. The Quick BRown Fox JumPs oveR the LazY BRowN Dog.

It's especially bad with the letter "Q." I CANNOT write a lowe case Q. When I absolutly have to, I spend about thirty to fourty-five seconds on it. My biology teacher in the ninth grade was a hardass and I had to train myself to be able to write in lower case.

I do enjoy writing out "Righteous." It comes out well.

There aren't any numbers that I dislike writing that I can think of, but I do dislike most odd numbers. huh.gif

Even numbers = good

Odd numbers (save ones that end with a 5) = evil

Yes, including 7. Seven is an evil number... in my book, anyway.

I don't mind 5's because it's an easy number to count by. 5, 10, 15, 20... You learn to count to 5 before learning to count to 10, which was my favorite number when I was younger. Now I like 69. biggrin.gif

Sometimes, I agree with The Wall. "No dark sarcasm in th classroom... Hey! Teacher! leave them kids alone!" So often, what passes for teaching is actually the attempted impressing of cynicism and Personal preferences on a new generation.

A bit off topic, to be sure... But, we all, I think, have stories of being 'Differently abled' from our classmates, and being forced to try to conform to an artificial standard, when we were doing alright to start with...

Forgive me if I ramble. I'm getting tired, and signoff time is right around the corner...

Rather sadly I never cross my t's or dot my i's. And for some reason my K's and R's are almost identical, as are my f's and l's--this is unfortuate. I only ever write in cursive; it's faster. And if you're puzzling over how I get an f and l to look the same, don't bother, it confuses me too. I don't like the letter Z so I frequently replace it with a S. Q is an ugly colour. I hate to write the words crackle, munch, chuckle, or Massachusettes. Luckily that doesn't come up much. I don't like odd numbers. Repeating numbers are the best.

If you're referring to "The Wall", it was an album by the band Pink Floyd that came out in the late seventies and was made into a movie in the early eighties. The references to dark sarcasms and classrooms comes from vocalist/bassist Roger Waters's hellacious experience in school as he was growing up.

Otherwise, school sucked and you were hit with rulers of you held your pencil differently or, in the case of many of my left-handed friends, dare to write with the devil's hand.

Yes, please please please ban the number 5. For some reason whenever I try to write a 5 it gets translated into an F somewhere between my head and the pen, no matter how much I concentrate sad.gif .

Also ban the 1, like Mr Teapot said it always ends up looking like an l or an i (or being written over to try and make it look more 1 like so many times the paper wears through).

No! Those are so much fun!
My 5s are terrible, my 1s are just straight lines. My 5s...I can't do that vertical line thingy, so I skip it a lot, or make it too long or too short. Dotting my Is has been a problem - the dot usually gets lost and I have to redo it. I mostly write in print - my cursive starts to look like just a lot of loops after a while. My print is also neater, and even THAT is bad. Hmm... fun things to write? Ess-tsets, cursive Qs and Zs (for my print Qs, most of the time they end up cursive Qs amongst print - the lowercase ones at least)... Fs are fun, and I loooove writing Ys.

Oh yes, I forgot about them! I don't care if we're not supposed to use them anymore, I still do because it's fun. ^^
