Bullsh*t: My ABC's

I am calling BS on myself, as I haven't been updating this as frequently as my New Year's resolution requires. Anyway, I design a load of fonts for work on a regular basis, so I thought I would share a few. I use all mediums, including: india ink, acrylics, pencil, charcoal, chalk, found textures, white-out, glue, pen, (specifically the beloved Micron pens) etc. etc. These aren't generally words I use (although I am trying to clean up my act), but I can't exactly print my uh, lingo at work, so have a laugh! I also thought I would add a few not so obvious pieces of The Royal Me from A to Z (Seriously, like I really have more to reveal on here, oooo, like I am sooo diverse and important. Did I mention I was bored too?):

A - Alone. I like it, so leave me.
B - Bicycles
C - Complaining. If I do it, I have to buy YOU something. It's the rules.
D - Debussy
E - Evolution
F - Fighting domesticity!
G - Graduate School
H - Hundertwasser
I - Infectious Diseases
J - Jaundice, I came into the world with it.
K - KAY-lee
L - "Linear" my nickname in high school.
M - Mayo, my slight substitute for cheese.
N - Niki de St. Phalle
O - Outdoors
P - Peart
Q - Quiet, Shhh, I work better.
R - Realization
S - Small town, I am sooo much more than I want to admit.
T - Table of Elements
U - UH OH
V - Vote, I do it, so I can complain* later. It's the rules.
V - Vegetarian for 12 LONG years. Not anymore!
W - Where are we going? What are we eating? What are we drinking?
X - ?
Y - Yes.
Z - Zzzzz

*Everyone should vote and I really shouldn't complain (see above letter C) too much, but lately it seems appropriate...

I heart your fonts. I screen-save them (duly copyrighted, of course). Have missed you on the train lately... we should have a spring drink.

Very cute! Maybe one of your fonts will marry this font: http://www.core77.com/blog/object_culture/the_best_font_ever_9432.asp
