I refuse to use text speak, mainly because it's going to kill the English language. So I never use it, EVER!!! It's ridiculously annoying. It makes me sad to think that in 500 years, the English language has gone from this: *Shall I compare thee to a summer's day? Though art more lovely and more temperate. Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May and summer's lease hath all too short a date.* To this: *WTF?!?!?!?! i h8 tat!!!!! shes suc a B&$@H!!!* It 's amazingly sad. What would Shakespear say about text speak? Our language is screwed up enough, it doesn't need to get worse.
Governor Swann: So, this is the path you've chosen? After all, he is a blacksmith.
Elizabeth: No.
[pause] Elizabeth: He's a pirate.
[Smiles, kisses Will, dramatic music, HAPPILY EVER AFTER (until they have to save the day again)!!!]

With inky love, Rose <3
