My sister Mairead has been reading the blog and in no way can contain her annoyance at my use of LOLs, emoticons 😀 🙂 😦 😛 :O, abbreviations BRB IMHO etc. etc. and so I have decided to make a concerted effort to stop. In my defence, I have two other younger sixteen year old sisters who I’ve picked this up from and who have been msning since early childhood and so they emoticon and abbreviate like it’s nobody’s business.. I however am a decade older and should know better – my punctuation faces have gotten so bad, I even sign handwritten letters with them (see below) :S. You can only get down with the kids so long before teh adult kittehs start to LOL or :O at you, whichever comes first. Okai Ah stopz nowz Mad Ah promise.
