Dreamt last night that I was living in an alternate world just like ours with one major exception. The only fonts that existed were Cooper Black and Comic Sans.

Talk about a screaming nightmare...

I was curious to remind myself what Cooper Black font looked like and so, because I had Mozilla Thunderbird already open, I thought I'd just type it into and discard an e-mail. I discovered that my version of Thunderbird didn't have Cooper Black by default but did have Comic Sans and that just made this all the more horrible! LOL! Imagine, all the world using Comic Sans in their e-mail because it's the default font! LOL!

He's a cocky little font, that's for sure :)

Thank you for reminding me... after rebuilding my system, I forgot to reinstall my old fonts. Now shuffling them off the rather ancient CD onto the new SSD...

-- Steve added Cooper Black and Comic Sans, just 'cause. (And also the Copperplate line and Garramond.)

...which is as good a place to link to the story of Averia as any.

Avería is the Spanish word for "breakdown" or "fault".
