I know posting has been light and I'm sorry. Has anyone really missed it, though? Probably not. I haven't had much to say, really. Which is weird because I talk alot. A Lot. I think my brain has taken a holiday from me. That being said, I thought I should post something anyway. Let's see where it goes...
I have a little pet peeve that has suddenly sprung upon me. I have lots of them on the whole but this one is kinda specific so just stay with me here. You see, I spend quite a lot of time computering the internets and I have been know to visit a gossip blog or two. Or three. Or twenty-seven. Anyway, more and more now I have seen a particular word thrown around and I just can't get on board with it. In fact, it PISSES me off when I see it. This word is "totes." I can only assume that it is short for "totally," although neither a google search nor an urbandictionary.com search provided confirmation. Let's just say I'm right and that's what it means. The point is that this is a stupid word and the word "totally" does not need to be abbreviated. "Totes?" Those are slippers or umbrellas or something aren't they? I think they sell them at Target. I am a huge fan of the slang word. I frequently throw down an "awesome" or a "dude" (Jesus Christ, HOW OLD AM I?) and, while they are a bit trite, I could handle "whatevs" or "sitch" or "natch," but "totes?" No, "totes" really annoys me. Am I alone here? Does anyone else see that it doesn't roll off the tongue? Ever. It also makes me want to add an s to whatever word is after it and that pisses me off, too.
Here's an example:
"Hey Marion, those shoes are totes cute!"
"Thanks Felicia, I totes bought them on sale!"
What are you people saying? Can we just stop please? That is all.
PS - I have now just realized that if no one else has seen or been bothered by this word than this post may seem like nothing more than the ramblings of a crazy woman. That may be true so I'm going to step away now.
