It must've been the "asleep by 9 pm on Saturday night with my cats"
I think that did me in as well. Someone want to show us an example of what this Mrs. Eaves font looks like?

Times New Roman.
I write in this for the WIP, but at size 13 and exactly 22 point on the A4 page - just to be different :D :p

I linked to it in my second post. Who knew that was even a font?

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!
Ohhh. I would have voted for that too (although I would have substituted fiance for husband ;) )

I would have, too! In bed by 9 with the cats seemed like the closest thing, but I think it sealed my fate.

I am Mrs. Eaves as well. I'd never heard of it before, but I think I kind of like it. (At least I'm not Comic Sans!)

I put that I was on the internet at 9pm on Sat, which is true.

I'm also Times New Roman. I guess I can live with that.

Too bad they didn't have any colonial fonts included, as I really like them.

Neat page! Naturally, I liked the Boswell font.
