Z is for ZOMG, #AtoZChallenge

Are you ready your final lesson on textspeak? Z is pretty limited when it comes to texting acronyms and slang, but there was one good one:

Are you all WTF is she drinking, OMG doesn’t start with a Z! right now?

Well, this is legit, folks.

From what I’ve read, ZOMG started when someone accidentally put a Z before OMG, and apparently it stuck. ZOMG is used when you are really feeling the OMG over something or when you want to use OMG sarcastically.

If I were to complain about how this blogging challenge was challenging and really wore me out, you might say, ZOMG, you poor thing! while rolling your eyes.

Or, if I texted you about how Jax Teller was sitting in my driveway on his motorcycle, you might text back, ZOMG you lucky bitch!

So…ZOMG, the A to Z Challenge is over!

This has been a fun theme for me to write about, and I hope you’re now able text people with less difficulty. And if your improved texting skills are making things tough on them, you know where to send them.

In case you’ve missed some posts and don’t feel like going through them all, here are a few winners based on likes:

  1. A is for ATM
  2. F isn’t for FWB
  3. Tie between J is for J4F and I is for IDGAF

Alternative meaning: none.

Textspeak I passed up: Zzz (tired, bored).

Which acronym was your favorite?


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?

L is for LAF

Today you were supposed to get an Anxious Mom Original Acronym (we’ll call this AMOA in the future). Unfortunately, I did a search on UrbanDictionary.com at the last minute for alternative meanings and discovered that my acronym isn’t as original as I thought. (Kinda like the time I invented the vasectomy.)

So, remember how I shared a list of bloggers that are Killing It yesterday? Well, today I’m going to share a list of bloggers that I think are LAF.


I kid, I kid.

You know what’s LAF right now? My hair. I dyed it back completely brown today to cover up the blue and purplish pink streaks I’ve been getting put in because I was tired of getting it touched up every 6 to 8 weeks. (Yep, that’s me, too lazy to sit in a salon chair for two hours every two months.) The hair looks good — and age appropriate — but it feels like it’s lost its soul. I’m now in mourning for those streaks you almost wouldn’t notice if you didn’t look hard enough.

Hanson is also LAF, but not for the reason you’d probably think. They’re LAF because they’re not putting out a brand new album this year. Those mofos put out an album every three years, so we’re due, but announced they’re only releasing a glorified EP this year. It’s LAF to let down a Fanson!

That new show Outsiders with Opie (also known as Ryan Hurst) from Sons of Anarchy is LAF, too. It was not what I had hoped it’d be. The Walking Dead is also LAF because of how they ended the season. I won’t say anything lest there be someone who is still catching up, but it’s for reals LAF.

Finally, Totino’s Pizza is LAF. You know those tasty little party pizzas that people who claim to be on diets shouldn’t be eating? Well, they’ve changed the shape from being a circle to a rectangle. I don’t know how, but it doesn’t taste the same, just like a Coke in a 20 oz. doesn’t taste the same as one in a 12 oz., nor does a Pepsi in a clear bottle taste the same as one in a blue bottle. It’s all LAF!

If you use #firstworldproblems or #bitchesbecrazy in the comments, you’re LAF.

Alternative meaning: lazy as fuck (this one applies to me, too).

Textspeak I passed up: LOTR (Lord of the Rings), LMS (like my status), LMAO (laughing my ass off), LLAP (live long and prosper), LBR (loser beyond repair), and LOL (laugh out loud).

What’s LAF in your life these days?

A is for ATM

My theme for the April A to Z Challenge is textspeak. This includes acronyms, abbreviations, and other slang that appears in text messages. Some of these you’ll know, and some you probably won’t, either because it’s not in your texticon (lexicon, texticon, see what I did there?) or because I made it up due to lack of better — or any — options.

For the first day of this challenge, I give you:


ATM, I’m trying really hard to resist the temptation to purchase the digital copy of Star Wars: The Force Awakens on Amazon and watch it while my family sleeps. (This is a scheduled post, in case you’re thinking that my family is a bunch of lazy bums.) Since I don’t want to face Little Man’s wrath should he find out I watched it without him (nor do I want to spend the day barely being able to keep my eyes open), I guess I’ll wait and do the family movie night and pizza thing.

ATM, I’m thinking about pulling off the ultimate April Fool’s Day prank (ultimate if you’re over 30 and have kids, anyway) on Sam, which I wrote about here. I tested out the prank while Sam was out on Tuesday, and it worked fine. It made a pretty loud noise with three poppers, and I plan to put at least 20 on the toilet rim. If you don’t see a “B is for…” post, send someone to check on me.

ATM, I’d like to wish those of you participating in the A to Z Challenge the best — may the writing force be with you.

Alternative meaning: ass to mouth.

Textspeak I passed up: AMF (adios, motherfuckers) and ATAB (ain’t that a bitch).

So…what are you doing ATM besides reading this post?

A To Z Theme Reveal: Text Speak

atoz-theme-reveal-2016 v2

You know how I like procrastinating? Well, I did that again. This time it was for the April A to Z Challenge theme reveal, obviously. Since you’ve been waiting on pins and needles all day long, I’ll cut to the chase and get to the reveal.

This year my theme is text speak, which will mostly be acronyms with a little other text slang thrown in.


Before you type “WTF” in the comments below, allow me to explain, and then you may proceed with the WTFing.

Each day, I’ll take a different text acronym and use it as the basis for my post. For example, with “LOL” I’ll do a post on something that makes me laugh out loud. Or maybe I’ll write about something that’s mildly amusing that doesn’t quite make me LOL, since people don’t seem to truly be LOLing while they’re typing LOL.

Now you’re probably wondering whether there will be any sexting. I hate to disappoint, but there won’t be.

While I have a lot of ideas churning, feel free to leave any acronyms you’d like to see me write about in the comments below. If I use your suggestion, I’ll do the showing the blog love thing and link to your page.

Now, excuse me while I go shred my English degree, which I’m pretty sure is flipping me off for contributing to ruining our fine language.
