"What is your font?"

Post by michellemoran » Fri January 9th, 2009, 6:43 pm

"What is your font?" Taken from Literary Agent Janet Reid's blog!

I'm Mrs. Eaves. Which... uh... I don't recall being a font.

I'm Helvetica - an industry standard, classic, reliable, maybe a bit boring though.

Times New Roman. Somehow that didn't surprise me in the least.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favourite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.
Location: California Bay Area

Hmm - that test could hardly be reliable, it didn't have llama-trekking as an option for summer vacation; the 90-minute wait in the doctor's office didn't have the answer "Pull out your current HF read and disappear into it, thankful for the opportunity to get a few chapters in," and I wouldn't waste time with any of the magazines listed.
Except for that fact that I was forced to pick false answers for two-thirds of the questions, I am Helvetica.

I got the same as SM and MLE. Classic, reliable and a bit boring. Big surprise there :o :p

Times New Roman too. Mind you the magazine question doesn't have much relevance to us Brits, I hadn't heard of most of them!

And I'm Mrs Eaves - a little fussy and a little old fashioned. and there was I hoping to make you all think I was dynamic and daring. Oh well :rolleyes:

:eek: Yikes! I'm Helvetica! Classic, reliable, and boring! Nooooo! It must've been the "asleep by 9 pm on Saturday night with my cats" answer. But that was the only option that remotely sounded like something I'd do on Saturday night! Now if they'd have had something like, "dinner with fiance, maybe a movie, have desert at home, then curl up with a good book" I'd have marked that! :D
