Say It. I Dare You.

Ninja and Misspam, someone sent me a friend invite on FB and she didn't have any privacy settings in place, so I looked around before accepting. Needless to say, I didn't accept her. I just don't understand that. I really didn't know that pfone is the new spelling.

I would be completely ashamed of my daughter if I saw that kind of spelling coming from her fingers.

Trust me, I love a good sassy, classy *****. But that ain't you.

I don't understand it either, but it reminds me a lot of shorthand, which used to be [still is?] a valued skill.

I dunno. I would be wary of underestimating it as a form of communication. I can't text as fast as most of today's youth, that's for sure!

I loved learning shorthand! It was my only all female class besides gym, and instead of feeling demeaning, it was fun as hell. We used to have timed races. It was great.

Fiery, thanks for clarifying. I wouldn't have guessed that. I was thinking more along the lines of P-Funk, as in Parliament-Funkadelic.

I see what you're doing; stop it. If I see it, certainly others can see it, too.

Hah!

I knew, knew you'd do the same thing.

That's okay. It proves my instincts are getting better, plus it cheered me up enough at the time.

Something nice happened yesterday. I was turning onto the street where I had someone to interview for work, when a flock of low flying birds surrounded my car for a long moment. There was sensory motion everywhere: wings, the sound of displaced wind, the occasional cry of one of the moving crowd. It was....lovely, and it gladdened my heart.

Decisions decisions:
I've been given some grapefruits. My first thought was a grapefruit and mint granita. I just wonder if anyone's going to get excited about a cold icy dessert right now.
Then I thought grapefruit curd and grapefruit and candied ginger financiers.
I've got a few salad ideas, but they don't take care of all of them either.
Terrine of grapefruit and star anise (or rose) red wine gelee and vanilla (or rose) yogurt panna cotta. I'm thinking this just based on how cool it is to make and look at.
Citrus cakes with sugar crusts.
Citrus baba au rhum with grapefruit syrup.

Bah, I resent being given such a bounty for it throws a monkey wrench into my baking plans!

Huh? I didn't notice. Borrow away --- I didn't trademark the custom. Happy to share.

I was talking about a dumb guy I know, who acted predictably.
Ghost~Poster, I'm crossing my fingers and hoping right along with you!
Nynaeve, that's great news!

I understand what that person wrote, took me a min or two longer than reading normal stuff but um yea, I don't get this trend and it should die.

Also, it hurts my fingertips after awhile typing on my little BlackBerry keys. But that stuff isn't even in that category. I concur with "idiot speak" and that it takes much more effort to do all that.

Oh, I see another thought separator user.

However, I did originally understand it as more than texting. That's what I meant about keying words into sites [like FB] on smart phones.
