Q: Txt spk run rampant?

Honestly I can't stand it. My "txt spk" is limited to roughly two words: lol and omg. It seems to be overused, and not just online but also when people text me. I once had a 28 year old man text me this way, and I was appalled. Do they not know that this makes them seem silly? Is it because the people they talk to online type this way, and therefore, they believe it's normal? Thankfully my students don't write their papers this way, but sometimes I wonder if this will affect students' written English at some point. Can I just tell a friend of mine not to use it anymore? I don't want to hurt her feelings. Then again, she also calls me "sweetie." I don't think she understands pet names yet.

But yeah, txt spk is really the most annoying concept ever invented. I know it was meant to be practical at first, and even I started using it for a while when I was a teenager (the shame kills me), but now it just makes me mad.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
