okay, has anyone else noticed the abundance of exlamation points in online correspondence whether it's email, chat,forum postings-- especially forum postings. Much more than the average use In Real Life, you think? Every other sentence of mine, or more like EVERY one has one OR MORE of the little lines and dots. On reflection, I believe I may be coming across as a bit of a frenetic chick, when in said Real Life, I hardly ever have a comment to make that would warrant one in a transcript. My case in point, an email I just sent Fiddlette/Christine/Missy C :
Now see what you enabled...I couldn't talk that long about mo's stuff and not go buy something new! I needed closure!
I'm downloading primitive scrapbooker as i type this. (SLOWWWWLY though - its over 300 mb!!)
and it is not what i logged on to get, I keep meaning to finally buy some of her froufrou stuff, like i want the roses from ashley!! and everytime i end up with primitive something or an alpha!
and I have to space my purchases out- these teenagers are expensive!! - haha!
P.S. and i think i'm addicted to the exclamation point lately. i need to tone it down. i wished i'd proofed my interview for scrapmommies and taken out half of them. i sounded high on ritalin (sp?) or something. But see, I 've posted this whole paragraph and not one exclamation point. Physically sitting on my left hand.
Still am, sitting on that left hand -- see? not an exclamation in site on this posting. AND IT IS SO HARD.
Here is the referenced article in the Scrapmommies newsletter: I was the member profile for December (and that oh so needs an exlamation or two...) If you have not been to scrapmommies, it is the homiest comfy-cozy friendliest scrapsite I've run across. Read that newsletter. and come on over.
Whew. Not one (new) exclamation point. I can cancel that Overusers Anonymous meeting.
