here I am.. sleep deprived..
geekin' it up online..
attempting to beat my former monthly downloader record of 1.45gig..
gettin' a damn good haul here.. gosh I am so proud..
on a disjointed adjunt to this subject.. here's one thing that always urks me with online conversations.. I've never been a believer, a supporter, or a user of the "lol".. y'know, that funny chat abbreviation for "laugh out loud"..? I've seen it enough years to've had a chance to accept it, yet it still bugs me.. coz it somehow seems less a form of "laughter" and more somethin' drugdealers at raves call their merchandise.. "oi ya geeza's, wanna drop a lol?".
I do like "rotfl" (rolling on the floor laughing), I have no problems with "ltmheaidafev" (laugh till my head explodes and I develop a flesh eating virus) or "iho24htldywf?" (I have only 24 hours to live do you wanna fuck?).
but.. "lol" still bugs me, it just looks stupid..
as a result.. I'm one of the few people who insists on using "hahahahhahahha" instead.. which unfortunately makes me appear to be a gibbering mental patient on too much novacaine..
speaking of such, why is it that most internet chats are seemingly loaded with "lol"s and "rotfl"... are internet conversations really all that crazy with laugh a minute excitement? are most internet uses abusing a seriously out've control drug habit? there's not subtlety with the "lol"..
really wot we need is.. "ptfyci" (pretending to find your conversation interesting), "atsau" (attempting to stifle a yawn), "yjs" (your jokes suck).. etc.. etc.. y'know.. develop some widely excepted grey region emoticons.. so it doesn't seem like you're bursting out in a mutiple g-spot trigger everytime someone tells a lame joke ;)
sure, this is a meaningless issue to a lot of you..
but seriously, it's small things like these that if untreated, lead to your children being eated by killer bees..
let that be a warning to ya!
