A font by any other name

**We've been put on bandwidth curfew again (cursed Wildblue) so if I've not been visiting your blog, this is why.**

A complete mystery to me is why my older son is so obsessed with fonts. And his obsession centers on one particular font: Papyrus.

Whenever he sees it, he yells ARRRRGHHHH! like it's some sort of calamity.

"It's vastly over-used," he says. Uh, and that's a concern to him, how?

Here's a sample of it (from the excellent Intellego Unit Studies curriculum DVD) -
Does that bother you? I rather like it myself.

Do you notice fonts? Do you have a favorite or one that you detest?
