Y is for YMNK, #AtoZChallenge

Whew…almost there — only one day left of the A to Z Challenge! Today’s textspeak isn’t made up by me, nor does it have curse words in it. Imagine that, a legit, clean texting acronym! Don’t worry, though, some of the acronyms I passed up aren’t clean, and you can see them at the bottom.

Y isn’t for YOLO, because I’m not a douchebag*. Instead, Y is for —

  • That I’ve edited a couple of books.
  • That I have four tattoos and would like to have a Shakespeare themed half sleeve on my left arm.
  • That we actually call Baby Girl “Baby Girl” a lot in real life. She hasn’t said her real name yet, but she refers to herself as Baby, Baby Girl, or My Baby.
  • That I hate Seinfeld.
  • That I don’t like animals. I’ll all about their rights and shit, but keep them away from me.
  • That I think The Office is the best sitcom ever. I will fight you to the death if you suggest otherwise. The first few seasons of Parks and Recreation are a close second.
  • That I have mad math skillz. I’m all Good Will Hunting when you need taxes or tips calculated. (Those count as mad math skillz, right?)
  • That I have two left feet. I’m one of the clumsiest mofos you’ll ever meet.
  • That — on the clumsy note — I don’t dance. At all. I hate it. I hated having to do it a couple times at my wedding, and it still makes me cringe thinking about it 10 years later.
  • That I think yellow cake sucks. The batter will do, though.

Okay, maybe you did know some of that stuff since I’ve made a million or so posts, but maybe a couple things are new to you.

*It’s a joke, so please don’t get all offended with “But I use YOLO and I’m not a douchebag, YB!”

Alternative meaning: None.

Textspeak I passed up: YMMV (your mileage may vary), YBF (you’ve been fucked), YAOTM (yet another off topic message), YBS (you’ll be sorry), YCMTSU (you can’t make this shit up), YKWIM (you know what I mean), YB (you bitch), and YOLO (you only live once).

Care to share a YMNK tidbit about yourself?

  1. BINAD needs to be a thing (“because I’m not a douchebag).
    I also have 4 tattoos and am scheming up more.
    My son refers to himself as “the little bitty dude” because that’s what we call him.
    I’m currently obsessed with Deadpool. That was the funniest shit I have seen in YEARS.

    • Hell yes! I’m gonna submit that shit on Urban dictionary and all the youngins can kiss my butt.

      That’s so cute 😄

      Never made it to see Deadpool, guess we will be waiting a few month.

    Whoa. You hate Seinfeld? There’s a pounding in my ears. Anyway…

    There are a lot of things you don’t know about me, because posting my blog link would make me feel like a spammer. The lady who did the tattoo on my upper back was later on the Dave Navarro show, Ink Master.

    Anyway, apparently the pounding is the building’s maintenance man hammering something.

  3. Non-animal lovin, non-dancin. non-plain cake-eatin freak. Tsk. 😉

    That’s awesome about your math skills. I bow to you.

    These names I give my kids on my blog, we call them those names and other non names: the boy, the boy one, Bubba, Sissy, NeNe, Muffin, Sassy, Sassafras, Sassers, Button, Moo, Punkin, Moomy, Moo Mae, Moomers, and Moomalade. We seldom call our children by their given names… They call each other their pet names as well. For instance, Sassy calls Moo Mew. I don’t know why we named them, lol!

    • Now you’re probably wondering if it’s not so much me being introverted as it is putting on a front because I’m shunned for my weirdness 😄

      Lol! One day you can call Moo’s work and embarrass her by asking for Moomalade. We call BG Sassy too sometimes. It’s nicer than other words she might be deserving of.

  4. Funny stuff my friend. You hate animals, wtf?
    Let me see, stuff about me. I used to have red hair but now it is platinum blond. Old age, I guess. I travelled around the world about 3 entire times by the age of 10. Both of my parents are crazy smart scientists. I have kind of a photographic memory. I’m okay at math. And I have no tattoos or piercings just tons of freckles that were supposed to have gone away. I hate Walmart and I have a sense of smell that rivals a dog’s sense of smell. That’s why I hate Walmart. That’s enough about me!

    • The American version is a different kind of humor than the British, but if you enjoy the humor in Parks and Rec, you’d like the American office, as some writers on that show left to start P&R, very similar humor.

      • Cool, thanks! I’ll give it a go. I didn’t think I’d like P&R (I’m always suspicious of “documentary-style”) but loved it after just a few minutes.


  5. YMNK: I used to be a huge fan of early Schwartzenegger movies and can still quote many of the best [ie, the worst] lines from memory; I left my last three graduate degree programs one requirement away from finishing; and I live above a gay bar, which most nights provides me a truly fabulous musical accompaniment to fall asleep to!

    [Totally agreement with you on the yellow cake issue. WTH kinda flavor is “yellow,” anyway??]

  6. Did you add the asterisk after reading my post? I am not at all offended. I hate hearing it from my offspring because it means they are defying me. It came to me when thinking Y and I am happy with it, but I probably won’t say it or type it again! 😉
