The only changes for me in grammar in IM is that I generally stop capitalizing. I still use commas and apostrophes, and I don't use shortening things for the most part. I don't say "lol," I say "haha."

In texts, I also stop using apostrophes and instead of commas I use dashes to separate thoughts.

You know, I've observed a disturbing phenomenon. I have online friends that type perfectly well in IMs with me... but in IMs with their real life friends, they type in chatspeak, to match their friends' chatspeak, as though ashamed of their ability to use proper grammar. WHAT THE HELL.

Put a stop to it.

Though I must admit I sometimes omit apostrophes if I'm trying to avoid going over the character limit. I figure I'd rather omit an apostrophe than go one character over the limit and get charged for a second text!
i know what you mean. luckily the people i text on a regular basis don't do any of that shit.

and i usually don't pay attention to character limits, only because i get unlimited texts and so do said people. however, if i'm texting someone who i'm not sure if they get unlimited texts or not, of course then i'd try to condense it to one text.

Anyway, sorry, carry on.....
Does it please you that I am running through their discography?

I agree, we need to figure something out. That's why I want the numbers badly. Also it'd be good if we could have one last chat here to figure things out. I think on Wednesday afternoon/night my brother will be seeing some of his friends, so it'd be good if we could plan something then. Could be either Wednesday or Thursday. I wanted to spend the first day or two getting used to everything, maybe meet up with another friend for lunch, nothing big.
Ick, that is annoying. What I hate about mine is how hard it is to get the number 1. I often type out "one" because that takes less time.

Wednesday for Greek I think has been a bit of a tentative plan for a bit, so I'm good with that. Let's try and round everyone up for that. And whenever you want to do the National Gallery is good by me.

Hope we can fit in that Indian place (Thursday?) and a piss-up.

I have no texting plan whatsoever, and my parents have said they want no parts of it.

Naturally, even despite trying my best not to text, I end up receiving about 30 in a month and sending about 20. Paying per text, no less.

I think)

By my calculations on my phone, 1 is 11 hits of the 1 button and 0 is 12 hits. Question mark is 3 hits, dash is 5 hits. There is no apostrophe.

It would be more pleasing if you meandered through it, and took your time, but, yes, they're, to me, true alternative music pioneers and their music impacts me in ways few other bands ever can. So, yes, am glad that you're giving them a listen and I hope you like what you hear. Their two albums prior to Accelerate are not all that good, but I like or love everything else.

I am not afraid of her. Let me know how I can help. This has to cease.
