Meeting random person from the internet #7: still basically kind of enjoyable to meet random people and hear about their lives if nothing else. I am still utter crap at reading whether other people are enthusiastic about me, or just a certain amount of baseline friendly. Anyway, as a consequence of the outing, I learned where there is tasty mexican food (Had some chorizo tacos at La Veracruzana) and gazillions of italian wholesale stores kind of like the Strip in pittsburgh: 9th street between south and washington.

Somehow I'm in a all-caps single-alphabet sort of mood lately.

Those of you who know me (or who know early-20th-century geometric sans serifs) well will recognize what the latter is an obvious homage to/ripoff of. As an exercise I did it from memory without looking up the actual font for reference, and I daresay I got a pretty reasonable imitation. Which is to say, I go to Chipotle way the fuck too often, but I already knew that. The elimination of the angled terminals on C, S, G was intentional though, for I really don't care for them. Apart from that I notice my M's middle sinks lower, the curves in my B, D, P, R are a bit squarer in general and in the P and R they are actually square and not curved on the insides. Truetype files are at Adipose and Carnitas, respectively.
