gwow whore tits

if you've ever immed someone, you know what i mean. typos in emails are unacceptable, but typos in instant message conversations are inevitable. sometimes these typos are simple like “teh” or the “you’re” will replace “your” and vice versa.

but sometimes these typos can cause a bit more than a quick grin from the receiving party. one example that happens far too often is the typo of “got it”. this typo normally comes out looking like “go tit”. this can be a rather confusing mistake for many.

an even worse one involves the words “who are”. i was talking about a camping trip to someone over a.i.m. she asked me “whore going?” “wth? who are you talking about???” i thought she was talking about someone she didn’t like that would possibly be going camping with me. until it dawned on me that no such person existed. she promptly responded “who are going? –sorry” i could only “lol” and keep going*

sometimes typos bring us new and exciting lexicon. for example, talking to a friend about some shocking story (of course i don’t know what the story was) he replied “gwow”. i mockingly replied that i agree with his “gwow”. my shocking story was so shocking that “wow” didn’t quite convey the shock factor of my shocking story.

from that conversation on i have used “gwow” whenever talking to this certain friend and my shock value is >100% of the generally used “wow”. now it wasn’t until recently that i’ve found myself using “gwow” with people who have never even heard of this typo-turned-slang. heck, if pwned can become popular (due to a programmer typing the word “owned” incorrectly) then “gwow” is next in line. gwow.

*note: since “lol” isn’t in my daily vocab, i never use it in conversation. i really did laugh out loud because frankly, this was a funny typo! i do use “wtf” and “wth” or “tmi” in my online conversations, because i also say them in verbal conversations. am i wrong? (to hunger).

just in!!!! while composing this blog post i’m talking to a friend online. we found out that we both ate spider rolls for dinner tonight.
her: if you ever visit, we have to go to that place with the good spider rolls then!
me: yes
me: most definitely yes and yes
her: i like it cause the crap is fried perfectly
her: crab

that scene

i’m not looking for sympathy here, but i’ve come across a scene which makes a perfect metaphor of my current life state. it’s from the movie sideways. miles, the main character has gone on the most memorable vacation of his pathetic life with his soon-to-be married friend. he then went to his friend’s wedding only to encounter his pregnant ex-wife and her happy hubby. on top of that, during the vacation, miles completely messed up what would have been a beautiful relationship with an even more beautiful woman. so miles ditches the wedding reception and goes home. he digs out of his closet a 1961 french wine that is currently ‘peaking’. the gem of his collection.

the scene is miles sitting in a mom and pop burger joint, wine bottle stuffed in the corner of the booth, yes his most prized 1961 vintage. his emotions are on a teeter totter. he’s sad due to the uncontrollable snowball of misfortune that has bowled him over. he’s in momentary bliss because his 1961 wine makes a generic burger joint feel like a 5 star meal. i’m trying to convey that feeling he’s got written on his face. those feelings.

my life is that face. there are goods and bads, ups and downs, i’m happy and sad all at the same time. thru the whole movie miles pouts about bad luck and regretted decisions, but at this point he realizes that his attitude is the only thing he needs to change in order to turn his frown upside down (one more cliché in that sentence and i would have had a hattrick).

this is the point he realizes it.
