Random Thoughts Tuesday

I have come to the conclusion that I spend too much time online.
:Gasp: Say it aint so.....
Well, because I literally have to stop myself sometimes when I am speaking to friends and family.
*You know the IRL kind.
I have to stop myself from blurting out LOL or OMG! or BRB.
Yes, people I want to use internet lingo when talking to REAL PEOPLE.
(not that you guys aren't real or anything. oh, you know what I mean.)
Do you ever do this??
Am I just weird? **Don't answer that.

Side note: I can recall my first chat board sessions (Good ole AOL days).
I had just quit work to become a SAHM and decided to explore the net. I joined some pregnancy chatrooms and started seeing LOL everywhere. I had no idea what it meant at the time and of course would never ask. I mean....I wanted to be in the COOL CROWD, ya know?
I started using it . . . A LOT!
I would sign my name in emails like this :
LOL, Linda
Yeah for awhile I did that. (DON'T JUDGE!)
I did eventually find out what LOL meant.
What I thought: lots of love
So, there for awhile I was known as "LAUGH OUT LOUD" Linda
now I am just known for using . . . . . . . . . .'s a little too much.
I guess you can call me . . . . dot dot dot Linda now.

*side note to the side note: that link up there says you can use LOL for Lots of Love too! I am not THAT crazy afterall.

Oh $hit. I use all those terms IRL. I fear I've blurred the line between internet and reality. Especially since as of late, I'm finding my internet friends more dependable than my IRL ones *scowl*

It was two months before I figured out what ROFLMAO meant. I gave up after that.

You mean "Oh Em Gee" isn't a valid statement??

That's how I felt when I first started gaming. FWIW? AFK? LFG? whah?
