Sext. Abbrevs.

There’s just something soo naughty about abbreviating sext messages.. it’s like.. I want to say something dirty, but I feel lazy and don’t quite want to type it all out.

So here’s a little list of the abbreviations you should know. Stop me if you’ve heard these before, but I can almost guarantee you haven’t.. EVER.

My favorite is #5.

HAHA. Either I am way behind the times, or this is totally bs..

And, isn’t the point of sexting to turn someone on? I mean sure you want to stimulate the other person’s imagination.. but you don’t want to leave them so in the dark he/she doesn’t even know it’s happening. A random assortment of letters just doesn’t do it for me.. but are there actual sexting abbreviations? Maybe some you and your partner share?

 

BONUS: the guy in the article above it is named “Cummings.”

Ever Been a Server or Bartender? Read THIS!

“Consumer Guide on the Working Conditions of American Restaurants” is a 30-page guide to working conditions in popular American restaurants, published by Restaurant Opportunities Center United, a worker-rights advocacy group. It tells you whether the staff at the restaurant you’re thinking of eating at gives its staff sick-leave, whether they are paid beyond the $2.13 minimum wage for tipped workers, and whether the restaurant has a policy of limiting women, immigrants and people of color to lower-paid “back of the house” jobs.

You can read more about it and find the full thing here. Yeah, it’s long, but it’s worth taking a glance at if you’ve ever worked in the service industry.

And here’s an interesting thought, how many people know that servers make $2.13 an hour? I’d venture to say a lot, if not most, diners. So, if an increase is made to the base pay, don’t you think people will then start tipping less?

Here comes my server talk, but it’s kind of like “gratting” a big table. Sure your menu says in size 4 fine print at the very bottom back right hand corner that parties of 6 or more can expect gratuity, but people still get mad- or maybe mad is the wrong word, but people are less likely to add to gratuity once it’s been included. That’s why you play it by ear.. if you are really hitting it off with a table, you don’t grat them because you might end up making more.

If people know that servers are making regular wages without tips, you can bet they will be just that- without tips. Don’t give people a reason to be any cheaper.

And notice the study comes complete with little cards you can hand to servers at the end of a meal.. I’m wondering how many of these “worker’s rights” enthusiasts would be content with just leaving said card.

I’m going to guess.. all of them.

Thoughts?

NY Teacher Ruins Christmas

What a.. scrooge. Apparently, a 2nd grade teacher in New York decided to take it upon herself to inform her young students that Santa Claus isn’t real.

The incident occurred innocently enough during a geography lesson, when students noted that Santa Claus lives in the North Pole.

The teacher promptly told the kids Jolly Old Saint Nick doesn’t exist and that it’s their parents who leave presents underneath the tree every year.

The school’s principal has yet to confirm the allegations and the superintendent was unavailable for comment.

Maintaining childrens’s belief in myths can be a tricky task for teachers. In 2008, a teacher in England got into trouble for telling stunned students that “only small children believe in Father Christmas.” And in September, parents in Leigh Acres, Florida were outraged when a teacher told students the tooth fairy isn’t real. Though at least that ones a little easier to do away with.. I mean the going rate for molars varied from house to house when I was growing up, so I’d just assumed she was very inconsistent.

And although teachers sometimes spoil the holiday fun–and the internet age doesn’t make it any easier for Kris Kringle- last year Pete Fontana, who runs Operation Santa out of the United States Post Office in midtown Manhattan, estimated that they’d receive 2 million letters addressed to The North Pole.

I don’t know how it works in your house, but if the Dempsey kids don’t believe in the big guy, he doesn’t come.

What do you think about educators ruining stuff like this for kids? Shouldn’t the parents be allowed the luxury to screw it up on their own?!

Jersey Shore-naments

Get ready to have your holiday guido-fied. GTL now stands for Glitter, Tree, Lights.

 

 

Thanks to a new line of holiday ornaments from renowned glass ornament company Kurt S. Adler, the “Jersey Shore” trio can adorn your tree this year. The ornaments are approximately five inches tall, and find the MTV reality stars immortalized in plastic doing what they do best: Snooki’s posing in a too-short glitter dress, The Situation’s holding his shirt up to reveal his abs, and Pauly D’s showing off his biceps and headphones. The ornaments were sold on HSN earlier this month as part of the shopping network’s “A Very Snooki Holiday Gift Special,” during which the pint-sized reality star otherwise known as Nicole Polizzi sold her new Snooki perfume, a line of handbags, and slippers and sunglasses. She also sold replicas of Crocodilly, the stuffed animal who’s seen things no stuffed animal should in the “Jersey Shore” house.

A spokesperson for HSN — where the ornament trio sold for $24.95 — tells TheWrap that the complete Snooki swag line, save the handbags, sold out, with fans snapping up 8,000 pieces of merchandise in about an hour when Polizzi appeared on HSN on Nov. 10.And though HSN won’t be offering the ornaments again this year, take heart:

 

You can get your set of Snooki, Pauly D, and The Situation at a Walgreens near you. $5.99 a piece or 2 for $10.

What a steal!

 

Best part of the whole collection? Overlooking the severe poundage Snooki seems to have lost here, the box has a label warning children under 14.

Even shorenmanet Snooki is PG 13.

 

What pop culture phenomena would you want to see turned into holiday decor?

..And where the heck is holiday VINNY?!
