Am I the only person in the world who doesn't do text speak? Not only do I not do it, I can't understand it and it absolutely infuriates me! Although I text a lot to family and friends I am incapable of using it, I have to spell out every syllable, comma, exclamation mark and full stop, and perfect spelling. My texts sometimes run to 3 pages but it has to be right. Maybe I suffer from OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) !
Are we breeding a generation who won't be able to spell or use grammar by condoning text speak? I work in a school and have seen evidence that students carry this shorthand through to their school work and they think that it's perfectly acceptable. Now that can't be right can it?
Am I just an old fuddy duddy?
Friday 16th March
Another bad night last night. Went to bed at 10.30p.m but was still staring at the ceiling at 2 p.m. so I got up and finished my book. Took another dose of medicine at 4 a.m. and went back to bed. I managed about 3 hours sleep. Never mind I'll probably sleep tonight. The good thing is my leg doesn't look as knock-kneed today perhaps because the swelling is going down! :)
