I’ve been texting a lot lately. With Bible Study over this is the best way to communicate with my girls. This is also linguistic school for me…my grandfather would be so proud.

Let me give you an example:

Me: Hey, How’s it going?

Girl: idk jus tied

Me: What’s tied mean?

Girl: lke when u wake up u tied

Me: Tired?

Girl: Oh yeah my bad that is how is spell it when I’m textin.

And yet another example:

Girl: can i go wit u guyz since i have nun n 2 do at da house.


So pretty soon I’ll be able to say things like…

AFZ – Acronym Free Zone

BBBG – Bye Bye Be Good

or my personal favorite….MTSBWY – May the Schwartz be with you.

I’ve just learned that in the world of text linguistics you don’t communicate with words you communicate with acronyms…if you’d like a good laugh check this page out. But beware there is some bad language on it.

Hannah needs…

Posted by hrgarippa on 21 February, 2009

I saw this on facebook, you type “your name and needs” into google and then list the first 10 responses. Friends are tagging each other and its flying around almost as fast as the “25 random things” note. I read a friends list and thought it was funny so I thought I’m going to type my name in and see what happens. The list made me laugh because it was so accurate to some the things I really¬†think I need.

  1. Hannah needs a boyfriend
  2. Hannah needs some alone time.
  3. Hannah needs a home a good daily walk.
  4. Hannah needs to go into the tunnel and face the prisoner
  5. Hannah needs your help
  6. Hannah needs prayer.
  7. Hannah needs a laptop
  8. Hannah needs a good break.
  9. Hannah needs a kick in the pants
  10. Hannah needs to understand the real motive before she can catch the killer.

So it actually, “hannah needs help” came up twice in the first 10 but I skipped it the second time.

Right Now

Posted by hrgarippa on 17 April, 2007

I know this doesn’t have anything to do with anything I usually talk about but when I was in high school this commercial was on the air and I was discussing it with a friend today and remembering how much I loved it. I felt truly inspired to drink soda.
