Uh-oh. Nobody told me I was supposed to remember what my doodles were. I guess I'm in truble now.

People who try to read my handwriting wind up assuming that they're looking at a different form of alphabet anyway ...

I guess I'm lucky, then: I had all my doodles collated and bound and now they reside in Lancaster University Library with all the other PhD theses.

... the German scholar who was writing his highly-awaited thesis on the Meaning of Life? This was back in the pre-computer days, mind y'all. He was taking a sabbatical in the south of France to finish the tenth and final volume of the manuscript when suddenly fire broke out in his villa. He hurried to lug out the heavy volumes, one by one -- and when he was running in to get the final one, the fire official stopped him.

"It's too dangerous," the official said.

"But it's the most important volume!" the scholar replied.

"Why?"

"It's got all the verbs in it!"

Frighteningly plausible.

>About all I doodled were square houses with triangle roofs<

Yep, I doodled those, too, Jackie. Then there were the hearts.....I spent my entire freshman year drawing hearts. Never satisfied with my symmetry, I would fill whole pages with hearts, attempting to perfect those congruent curves!

Still can't draw a perfectly symmetrical heart.......such a failure I am.

Still can't draw a perfectly symmetrical heart Same here, sigh. I astonished my husband, though, a few years ago. He wanted an outline of a bull's head, so he could cut that shape out of wood, for the Cub Scout lassoing activity. He found a drawing that he liked, and was all set to do the painstaking convert-it-from-a-small-graph-onto-a-bigger-one thing, when I stopped him. I took the drawing, folded it in half lengthwise, laid it on top of a piece of plain paper also folded lengthwise, and just cut around the outline. Voilą--a perfectly symmetrical bull's head, completely suitable for the purpose. And drawing half a heart, then unfolding the paper, is still the only way I can get a symmetrical one.

As our medical professionals will tell you, real hearts aren't symmetrical, anyway. Is there a word for heart-drawing?
