I decided that Illustrator needs to be part of my bag of tricks. So I have been experimenting with Illustrator and what it can do.
I love the extremely small amount of effort I have to use to make shapes using Illustrator.

I hear ya... I feel like it'd take me a while to create this in Illustrator. In fact this frightens me... back to Photoshop!
Illustrator is great at creating custom shapes ... with 2-3 clicks maybe? I think this is close to the first shape I made when learning it. Ha!
Pathfinder >> Unite? :-)
Circle >> Snap to Grid to make it easier to line up >> Add new anchor point in the upper right corner of the circles path >> Drag the Anchor point to the upper right >> Adjust the anchor point using the anchor point doohickies to make a square corner >> Raise the thickness of the stroke >>Voila
Or you could I assume make two shapes (circle / square) >> Pathfinder >> Unite >> Voila
