Dear ArtsEdNetters,

I just added this resource:
I am BIG on symbolism....this is a links of a list of
You will find it on:

The "New" Language of our kids....

There is a new language out there and we need to learn
it (if we are really going to know what the kids are
saying today). Believe it or not some of my
hubby's students even put these in their English
papers! Of course he makes them change them. Now -
brush up on these - 'cause I may start saving myself
some time in typing out all of those extra letters.
Typing is not one of my skills.

Add this to the list *B*.... I use that a lot for ME
these days (*G* - grin) Babe (or Beauty) - In - Total
- Control of - Herself (BITCH).
Getty list came up with Beauty summer of 2000. We
didn't like the original "Broad" (as in female - not
sure of the spelling for that) Do NOT confuse this
with "B" - that just means b__ch. This B-I-T-C-H
helped me with a lot of girls. Brought smiles to their
faces and got them to say thank you when some idiot
called them that. You see? There was no penalty if
someone called a girl a B__ch - nothing ever
happened in my school (Oh yes - they did get the
"Wrath of Judy Decker" if I ever found out about it -
LOL - that was good enough punishment I guess.
Care to hear my lecture? tee-hee).
