Life on Thursday

Feels like forever since I’ve linked up with Sar for Thursday Thoughts.

*Last Friday I was happily walking out of school swinging my teacher bag smiling to myself. IT’S FRIDAY FRIDAY GONNA GET DOWN ON FRIDAY!! Umm, maybe not. I jumped in my car, turned the key, and nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero. I ran back into school to ask around for some jumper cables. After my car was jumped, I took it to the shop where I was told what I already knew. I needed a new alternator. Over $600 later and four days without a car, I’m finally able to drive again. Such a bummer. I’m blessed to have amazing coworkers who drove me to school all week!

*What’s the deal with adults abbreviating words? In the last month I’ve heard people use in particular order:

Jelly (jealous)

Dins (dinner)

Perf (perfect)

Num num (really, there is no excuse for this)

Nom Nom (num num’s stupid younger brother)

and my personal favorite

Tie tie.

You’re what? Tie Tie? Oh, you’re tired.

I’m sorry we speak adult here, thanks.

The English language will never be the same.

*We don’t have school tomorrow! We are attending our yearly teacher’s conference. Most people loathe sitting in a room being talked at all day. I , on the other hand, live for meetings and conferences. I should find a way to parlay this love for meetings into a full time job. Have a workshop you really don’t want to attend? Pay me and I’ll take notes. Heck, I’ll even come to your house and present my notes for you.

Eh, did I just expose my geek flag?!

*My class has the mint on high pitched squeaky voices. It’s not even a problem isolated to the girls. Two of my boys speak at an octave only dogs can hear. The worst part of this is when I find myself turning on my squeaky voice. I cringe a little on the inside every dang time. I guess it could be worse, I could be telling people that I’m tie tie!

*I hit 80 followers today. So, thanks! Keep commenting, I want to be friends!

I could write a book (as well as several of my former co-workers at 911,) just on "modern language".

Always amazed me when I had to have the person repeat what they said, and they would get upset that I didn't understand what they were talking about.

Oh my goodness, I feel like I can't keep up with these new abbreviations! I recently learned, interwebs...internet...why did internet need a new word? I'm so confused.

Glad you got your car fixed! Mine decided to hit the dust officially, guess 18 years of life was as long as it wanted to make it. Thank goodness for friends who are willing to drive me places when the husband is at work.
