I Found It! January 31, 2007 / Neil Kramer / 38 Comments I found the missing notebook… … on my desk, under a coffee cup. Communicatrix, I need you to help me with organizational skills! Life in General, Literary Previous post Missing! Next post Traditionalists 38 Comments deezee January 31, 2007 at 11:42 am which of your readers can do handwriting analysis?? (cuz I’m all ears…or eyes.) Reply Hilly January 31, 2007 at 11:58 am Oh so you lose things the way I “lose” them? Yanno, they get found when things are cleaned up ;). Reply Eileen Dover January 31, 2007 at 12:03 pm Why, that’s a perfectly logical place for a notebook. Ummm. So, were you a doctor in a previous life? Reply better safe than sorry January 31, 2007 at 1:15 pm i can read most of it! “the exchanges were more playful than romantic”, wonder what’s on page 2? Reply ms. sizzle January 31, 2007 at 1:19 pm you clearly need me to come over and organize your desk. Reply Edgy Mama January 31, 2007 at 1:23 pm And we’re supposed to be able to decipher that? Reply charming, but single January 31, 2007 at 1:25 pm Your handwriting leaves me with one question … are you a serial killer? Reply Non-Highlighted Heather January 31, 2007 at 1:29 pm You’re such a dork. You remind me of Fred Mertz with his glasses. “If they’d been a snake, they woulda bit me.” Reply fringes January 31, 2007 at 1:33 pm Why is “chatting” in quotation marks? Were you two actually doing something else? Reply tiff January 31, 2007 at 1:38 pm that’s one big coffee cup, then. yow! Reply Oopsy Daisy January 31, 2007 at 3:00 pm Ah, my plan worked. Hide the missing notebook under huge coffee cup (after making multiple copies to sell on the internet along with Neils sex tape) then make Neil think he is losing his mind by not seeing the notebook there in the first place. Yes, I love it when a plan comes together. Of course it helps to have a pliable subject. The only downside to the plan is now I have to buy my own fish taco. Must make better plan next time. Reply mrsmogul January 31, 2007 at 3:14 pm I can’t really read that but I think it says MRS> MOGUL rocks? 🙂 Seriously!! when things are found is the greatest eh? Reply Lefty January 31, 2007 at 3:34 pm Does that mean you will be your own blog crush on Friday? Reply Mo January 31, 2007 at 3:53 pm I’ve studied handwriting analysis at length and you scare me – deeply. What’s with all the slant changes? You know that means you are an emotional time bomb, right? I was braced for the long lower loops (perv!), but I never expected the open loops on your o’s, Mr. Can’t Keep a Secret. Reply Mo January 31, 2007 at 3:57 pm Heh. I have SO much ammo on you now! Heh. Reply rach January 31, 2007 at 4:08 pm You blokes! What are you all like? x Reply Neil January 31, 2007 at 5:24 pm Rach saying “blokes” was really hot. I love the British. That Rach bird for instance, is a bit of skirt. Reply communicatrix January 31, 2007 at 5:34 pm I will be happy to help you. In Portland. At TequilaCon. So there. Reply Churlita January 31, 2007 at 5:56 pm Lucky for me I’m old and was trained to read cursive. Some of the youngin’s probably can’t decipher any of the things you wrote about not even asking if Sophia was single or not. Reply wendy January 31, 2007 at 7:28 pm are you left handed?? Reply Pearl January 31, 2007 at 7:30 pm Wendy, that’s so freaky. That’s the first thing I noticed and thought of, as well. So, Neil…are you? Reply wendy January 31, 2007 at 7:30 pm oh and intellectual conversation..ie fore play for you..right… Reply Leezer January 31, 2007 at 7:38 pm Neil: I’m so distracted by your serial killer-like handwriting that I couldn’t read what you were trying to say. If you’re ever asked by the FBI to provide a handwriting sample – don’t Reply gorillabuns January 31, 2007 at 7:50 pm i find it interesting you double space your slightly illegible writing. …and you actually write down your posts before you type them? how, “organized for the unorganized” you are. Reply Neil January 31, 2007 at 7:55 pm Right-handed. And I didn’t realize that I was revealing so much by showing my awful handwriting. I do write a little more legibly when it isn’t for myself. Note to self for future meme: people send in scans of their handwriting of the same sentence, and I make fun of them. Reply Dagny February 1, 2007 at 6:07 am Well of course, Neil double-spaced. That’s what you are supposed to do with handwritten drafts so that you have room to make changes. Or at least that’s what I tell the kids. Not that they believe in making changes. Reply Jazz February 1, 2007 at 6:51 am So now you’re going to post the Neil meets Sophia on the internet entry. Right? Legibly I mean.. Reply Finn February 1, 2007 at 7:16 am There’s this new thing they have, they’re called coasters… Reply girl and dog February 1, 2007 at 7:45 am Wow, your desk must be quite…um…chaotic? Hey, could you post a picture of your messy desk?!?! Reply Bre February 1, 2007 at 7:49 am There are some nun’s I know who are itching to rap your knuckles with a ruler for your awful penmanship… so watch out! 🙂 Reply Mo February 1, 2007 at 8:26 am I could go on about the positive things shown in your sample, but I bet that would be even more embarressing. Reply Tatyana February 1, 2007 at 8:52 am Neil, concentrate now, please: where did you put the new black notebook I gave you? Reply Neil February 1, 2007 at 9:36 am Although Neil has found the notebook containing the continuing saga of how Neil met Sophia online, the publishing of the post has been postponed until later, as he is afraid of publishing it until he has first gotten the approval of Sophia, remembering the last time he wrote about personal stuff without asking first, and had to sleep in the dog house, which was especially uncommfortable since neither of them has a dog. Reply Lefty February 1, 2007 at 10:48 am Wendy and Pearl…exactly WHAT are you implying when you wonder if Neil is left handed? Reply kapgar February 1, 2007 at 10:54 am I’m not sure that having found it is indeed a benefit. How in God’s name is anyone, including you, supposed to read that? Reply sara lee February 1, 2007 at 11:28 am The thing people seem to have forgotten was that you wrote this for noone to read but you! It looks absolutely fine to me! 🙂 OK, so my family says my penmanship is the worst thing they have ever seen…so my judgement may be a bit off! Reply rach February 4, 2007 at 4:37 am Don’t get me started on cockney rhyming slang now Neilochka! x Reply Pearl February 5, 2007 at 1:06 pm What a fun idea and how diverse people’s handwriting is.
