Funny Stuff...Well, To Me, Anyway

Conversation with the Kid

Scene: Picked Number One up at school, stopped at grocery store on the way home. She was going to wait in the car and read the hated Great Expectations.

Me: Don't get carjacked.

Her: I won't.

Me: Take off your seatbelt. If someone tries, jump out of the car immediately.

Her (reaching into back seat): I'm not leaving without my Neo.


Ahhh, that's my kid.


Today, I was participating in a writing blast sponsored by my local chapter, CPRW. We were all typing in the chat so fast that we kept messing up. Stuff like spring instead of sprint and Luciver instead of Lucifer and getp 'oml instead of whatever it was supposed to be. Someone typed readu and made a joke about not knowing what that was. As the joking evolved, we discovered...

A NEW LANGUAGE!

We no longer make mistakes. We just switch from English to Typotic. Join us! The learning curve is nearly non-existent.

Supernatural fans, don't forget the new Ghostfacers series launched today! Go to Ghostfacers.com. I can't tell you how they are, because the video player doesn't seem to want to update. Will have to try it on my laptop.

Man, I wish I was there. Actually, no I don't. I hate going to the grocery store. Typotic! Ha! I can't wait to tell my friends! And my Nano friends. They'll get a kick out of it.

Yes, spread the word far and wide, and I will finally have a coined word that I KNOW came from me! LOL

On Nano, there is a Magazine where a kid puts together fun articles the other young writers write and kids on Nano can subscribe. They have a section on languages and I just sent in Typotics for a language. Spreading the word!

It's the easiest language in the world to learn! :)

ML said...
