Advent Day 2 ~ Hot & Not

Day 2 of the Advent Blog-a-long has me again visiting the Hot and Not meme hosted by Loobylu.  What is Hot, or Not, in your house?

HOT
*Christmas!!  Getting close now and I really should get organised with my gift buying, and making...

*Mail.  I received the below package from Tinniegirl as part of Blogtober's giveaway fun.  The universe is leaving me nice messages and we are enjoying the mixed CD too.  Just in time to refresh my playlist for the Christmas driving and visiting period :)



*Spotlight.  I know, strange!  I really like these cottons I picked up at Spotlight with my two discount vouchers yesterday.  I also like the discount vouchers so that is two ticks for Spotlight this round.



NOT
*Spelling.  I know I was not really paying attention in class when the teacher covered the basics, so my spelling is often not the best.  At least I try.... 

I h8 reading wot u have 2 say if u type like this.  Wot r u thinking?  I have had enuf! 

If this style was from a teen via a text message I would put up with it, but it came from an adult in a forum, and for some reason that makes me a little sad :(

  4. I'm with you about the text-speak. I even write full sentences when I'm sending text messages. Keep up the fight or we'll lose the beauty of language altogether!

  7. It is one thing to make a couple of spelling mistakes, but some of that 'text talk' is ridiculous. I have trouble understanding a lot of it.

  9. Text speak drives me crazy, it's also why I take four hours to send a simple text message because I can't help but spell out every word correctly.

  10. You have some gorgeous fabrics there, IM trying to be good and stay away from spotlight and any online fabrics stores - seeing all your fabrics is making that very difficult!

  14. I got 2 get some of the gr8 fabric from SL wot u got! LOL ;)

    Why do I never see such fabulous things at my Spotlight?

    Re. the Christmas tree comment you left on my blog, for the last few years we've had our tree on the dining table, on a side table, and on the coffee table (pushed against a wall). This kept it out of the way of little hands. Now that it's on the floor it actually looks really small LOL!

  15. I am with you Becky - that text talk drives me mad.
    A couple of those 'Spotty' fabrics are a little Amy Butleresque - very nice.

  19. I'm with Aussie waffler - texting takes me forever as I spell everything out. Some of the abbreviations are good and I admire their cleverness but I think that they should be exclusive to the medium they're invented for. Some communication styles just don't cross mediums, e.g. sarcasm in e-mails and letters written like an email. People used to write differently for telegram than they did in letters, too. If e-mail is about immediacy of communication, then texting is about the immediacy of the nano-second.

    Spelling and typos - sometimes it's hard to spot the difference....
