Abbreviation

Tuesday, August 12th, 2008

Abbreviation

I know I have brought you Web sites before where abbreviations are defined. But this one is quite different! Not only does it give you the ability to search abbreviations (and acronyms) for businesses and organizations internationally, but it also connects you to a Web page if one exists.

Ironic Sans Thsrs

Ironic Sans Thsrs

I’m terrible at text messaging! I tend to write in complete sentences, without using numbers or abbreviations to express myself. That, without a doubt, is frustrating, especially when it comes to the 140 character length each text can have. I’ve also run into this problem when leaving comments on blogs and when using Twitter.

So, what’s a girl to do? Well, head on over to Ironic… Continue reading

lyricsfly

I love to find lyrics to songs I like. I feel I can get a better understanding of the song or I can double check a lyric to make sure I heard it right.

Repair Pal

Friday, July 11th, 2008

Repair Pal

I have to admit that I’m leery of taking my car in for repairs. I always fear the mechanics will only see a woman and they’ll have dollar signs flashing in their eyes, because I might not know what they’re talking about.
