This & That Thursday

* I'm a little annoyed right now. I took some pics to share, but according to Windows Photo Viewer I "don't have permission to access" those files. Our computer was wiped clean this week and we're still having to fix some stuff. Ehh, I'll mention it to Matt tomorrow. I'm sure it'll be on the top of his To Do list. (note the sarcasm)

* Audrey's started talking at preschool. Apparently, as the shell has broken she's also started to get a little more comfortable with the idea of not following teacher's instructions. Nothing big, just "hmmm... maybe if I smile real sweetly I can get away with doing what I've just been asked not to do" stuff. Audrey got a sticker in her folder everyday this week (for good behavior), but I wouldn't be surprised if there's a sticker missing sometime soon.

* Hey Moms and Dads! If you send your kid to pre-k with a honeybun, poptart bites, and Kool-Aid for snack EVERYDAY, your child's teachers will talk about you. I'm no health nut, but seriously!

* I skipped down the hallway (literally) when I noticed that CVS would be giving me Matt's preferred deodorant free (with coupons) next week. Can you say "giddy"?

* I'm also uber excited that we'll get to have a nice family breakfast tomorrow morning and Saturday morning! 4.5 months ago we had these at least 5 days a week, after the move it got cut back to twice a week, and since pre-k began it's been just once a week!

* Last, but not least, I'd like to give you my opinion on something that tends to annoy me...
I understand that in the texting culture abbreviations are common. I'm ok with that. Occasionally, I participate in shorthand myself.

lol - laughing out loud
btw - by the way
brb - be right back
idk - I don't know

All of the above mentioned abbreviations can be used to shorten the time it would take to type out the full phrase. I get it. I do it too... errr, I do it 2. :)

Then there are the abbreviations that barely shorten the type time.
me 2 - me too

c u soon - see you soon

ok fine. whatever - Those abbreviations are a little annoying (especially from adults instead of teens) but I can live with it. But what really annoys me are the abbreviations that do NOT shorten the type time at all. SO since they save no typing time or space, in actuality they are not an abbreviation or a form of shorthand. They are just misspelled words.

n e wayz - anyways

Watz up wit dat?

  1. HAHAHAHA! I share your thoughts on abreviations! I still have a really hard time figuring out some people's texts and emails because I am not up on all my abreviations - if you can call them that.
