Gill Sans. It’s kind of like steampunk or Flash Gordon: it’s yesterday’s tomorrow.

Bookman Old Style. Clearly old-school, but adapts pretty well to the modern world.

But seriously...

Courier.

(that's the back of my neck.My next tattoo is going to be a line from E. E. Cummings - "listen: there's a hell of a good universe next door; let's go." - in courier, around my right wrist.)

Unrelatedly, but ultimately, if I was a me*, I would be the me-iest me that I could be**. Why bother with being something else? I find it odd that we decry the labels others apply to us, but then try to fit in a box clearly too small to contain us***.

That being said, Sans Comic.

* The jury is still out
** This may, in fact, explain the weight I've put on.
*** A-hem.

Just occurred to me...
Pretty soon you'll have enough of these q &a's (Rosa polls) for a book.
Make it an e-book.

9 point fixed, doesn't suffer from keming (it's the font I've used in my xterms since 1992).

(I just love these qotd.)

I usually use Georgia for documents I use in class (exams, quizzes, practice problems), but it doesn't match my personality.

Looking through the fonts available in MSWord 2007, I'm probably a Ligurino.. with odd sizing of letters, and a bit unsettling to those who aren't accustomed to something so different.

What I would like to be.. Bradley Hand ITC, more stylistic but still hopefully unique.

Hur hur hur.

ha! I made the same stupid joke, below, before looking at the comments. We really do think alike.

My dad has an accent. He always claims he just talks in a different font.

I've always been fond of Goudy Old Style- I used to carve signs and fonts are so much fun when they're pretty. In recent years I really loved Papyrus, but then it got insanely trendy.

Garamond. Timeless, yet quirky.

Browsing through the fonts in Word, I think I'm going to go with Euphorigenic -- quirky and (if I do say so myself) stylish, but packs so much into a small space that it can be overwhelming.

Also, I'm surprised no one said "Wingdings".

Guttenberg MF, for my showy times
Bookman Old Style, for general situations

If I were a typeface...
Optima!!!!! Because... it's so utilitarian but with just a subtle hint of artistry that most people miss.
