    I have some computer geek (their term, not mine) friends who like to 'talk' like that just to annoy me. The only phrase I know and use (I guess that makes me a semi-geek) is w00t!

    My boyfriend is one of those hacker geek guys, and I've had to learn that whole language. Against my will, I might add. I've read magazine columns where he was interviewed, and they always manage to drop a few of the cute little elitespeak bombs in there. Ugh. I did a usenet search on him (not behind his back or anything - with his blessing) when we first started dating, and I thought my eyes were going to cross from all that nonsense. Ack, ugh, blah. I've even gone to his 2600 meetings (I don't know if those are very well-known, so if you have no idea what I'm talking about, just ignore me), and listened to people actually speak like that. Now, it's one thing to type it out, but to talk that way too? Luckily my boyfriend has pretty much moved on past that phase, because I'd hate to have to beat him about the head with blunt objects if he were to do it often.

    One that bugs me is using "boo" as in boyfriend. If you've ever heard the song Dilemna by Kelly Rowland and Nelly its in the chorus...

    What is "w00t"? My friends put that in their emails all the time, and I am apparently not sufficiently geeky to know what that means.

    That's ebonics, which I mentioned in my other post annoys me. Especially when white people try to speak it and think they're hardcore "gangstaz" because they use ghetto phrases and listen to rap. Back in my day, if a white boy talked like that, he'd either be laughed at or beat up.

    Boo is also a southern term for a sweetheart. At least I think it is, I have a friend in Louisiana who calls me boo (he thinks I'm cute. lol), and he is sooooooooo not a gangstaz or ebonics type.

    Maybe it's a cajun thing too. But I live in Alabama and the only people I've heard use the term here are either black or wannabes.

    I always say "dude" & "whatEVER!" I find that I say "dude" more frequently when I've been drinking
