And can't spell that either. *Sigh* Don't men realize how sexy good grammar is?
Well wielded words will whisk wanton, wild woman's woolies windward! Woo!
(Although abusive alliteration almost always asks an askance analysis!)
Words are damn sexy, and are fine window for peering into a new (or old) friend's soul and mind. Never underestimate the power of words. "To hell with rules!" I hear you holler. The rules of the game exist for clarity, for even in the most general missive a misplaced letter, word, or punctuation mark makes an appreciable difference in the tone, intent, or feel of the actual dialog at hand.
From the cold, dark scrabblings of my future grave I will continue to stab at the monstrous, miscreated and barbaric rise of "IM speak" in more formal, less immediate settings. "You" is only two more characters than "U", and you don't sound/look like a halfwitted, wrongheaded gimp too lazy to type a few extra characters. (It is offensive, and not only to the anally retentive - but oh so sexy - English teacher who lives in my forebrain. It says "I'm a lazy fuckwit, I miss details, and I don't care enough about you to make the effort to communicate effectively" to me.)
But then my enunciation sucks goats, having learned language through literature. Can I yet properly pronounce apropos? Depends if you're a unix geek or not.
