Phrases that used to be reserved for texting, instant messaging, and personal blogging are now coming right out of our mouths! Whether it's a reflection of wanting to talk the way we type, being allowed to say things in acronym form that you couldn't otherwise (i.e., "WTF"), or if it's just the new slang, everybody's doin' it.
The Gossip Girl kids are throwing around the acronyms (so much so that their ads nearly ignited a riot), Barney Stinson is abbreviating everything, and I have even been known to let "maj" and "OMFG" slip.
What about you? Do you reserve the shortcut-speak for your typing, or do you fit this in to your everyday slang?
