I don't know if it's still available, but 20 years ago I had a font made of my handwriting. I had to fill out a large page of writing various letter combinations so that after completing a block of writing and converting into my font, the writing flows together smoothly, looking exactly like I wrote it by hand.

I had an ex who really got upset if someone typed a personal letter to her, who never questioned it when I'd send her letter done in this font as long as I used blue ink. She never knew it was done on the computer.

Twenty years ago was 1993. The printer revolution (laser and inkjet) was well under way by then.

Different program. I think that one 'will' generate your handwriting as a font, but it won't join letter combinations smoothly. When you conned an 'a' to an 'e' it looks differently than when you connect an 'a' to a 'v' or 'o.' Looking at the templates (only two pages,) it only asks you for individual letters. The program I had required about eight pages of templates, with various letter combinations. Same idea, different program.

My laser printer allowed me to insert individual sheets of good quality writing paper. She would have refused to answer the letters if she had known.

I took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason took my order first.
"I'll have the steak, medium rare, please."
He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"
"Nah , she can order for herself."

And then the fight started...


My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.
She said, 'I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.'
I bought her a bathroom scale.

And then the fight started...


When I got home last night, my wife demanded that I take her some place expensive... so, I took her to a petrol station.

And then the fight started...

The passengers on a small plane are a quite surprised when the pilots arrive.

The pilots walk up the aisle, both wearing dark glasses. One has a seeing-eye dog, the other is tapping his way with a white-tipped cane.

The cockpit door closes, the engines start up.

The plane moves faster and faster down the runway. People by the windows realize they're heading right towards the water at the end of the runway.

Panic ensues. Screams fill the air. At that very moment, the plane lifts smoothly into the air. The passengers relax and laugh a little sheepishly.

Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot. "Y'know, Bob," he says. "One day they're going to scream too late, and we're all gonna die."
