I Heart Dots

I don't know why... but I Heart Dots...

Maybe it's just the way I "hear" myself talk when I write. Sort of like my voice is trailing off... like I'm not done yet...or I need to ponder... or something. And I know that punctuationally speaking, it isn't correct. (Is punctuationally even a word?) I mean, you're not supposed to just add a bunch of dots because you want to...or because that is how you "hear" yourself talk when you write...right?

I also know that the proper name for my little punctuation obsession is Ellipsis Dots. But saying "I heart Ellipsis Dots" just doesn't sound the same.

By the way... I also heart using three exclamations and/or question marks. I don't know why I like it; I just do. I mean, they are not nearly as fun as notating with Ellipsis dots, nonetheless I heart them. I don't even have to be angry to use them. I can just be like, "OMGosh!!! Are you Freakin Kiddin ME??? Congratulations!!! That is soooo cool!!!" Yeah, like that.

And finally, I heart saying 'heart'. I heart you...over there... yeah, you... I heart you!!! And I heart Tangy Taffy!!!...did you hear me???...I heart you too!!!

It's all part of what I like to call Emmaology. It's not meant to be understood... it just "is"...

What about YOU? What do YOU heart???

What heart dots? You mean, you love dots? I like that! Heart dots. Anyways, i'm also f0nd of using ellipsis. For me it's like talking sweetly, or being friendly... I use that a lot when i text my friends. If im serious or in a bad mood, i use a period. If i feel excited, i use exclamati0n point. When angry, i use triple exclamation points. If i'm texting a loved ├Âne or a friend, it goes like this. "have a good day..."

I love the idea of "Emmaology"!!! See, we all do it...and sometimes we don't even know why!!! But these can be used in anyway...well almost!!!
I must put up my hand and claim that I use them for just about every thing!!! If I'm surprised, I'll use them, If I'm shocked, I'll use them, even if I'm asking a question, I'll use them!!!
Is that not why those keys are used for anyway??? One is just never enough!!!

I,too, heart dots (which, if you read my blog...you notice). haha!

I heart you, Emma!

And I hear myself talk when I write, too. I also read this one blog from a lady from England and I "hear" her in a British accent. Is that weird? I don't know, but I like it. haha

Have you seen the episode of Seinfeld where Elaine is all about using the exclamation point? Hilarious!

I heart the word "hoo-larious". I also heart the strike out feature, although I don't use it as much as I want to.

I heart making kids wear shirts with collars to school. I heart making kids wear their hair down and not up, which is so uncool. I heart making kids wear the jeans today that they only had on 1hours last night.

I heart ruining the life of all teenagers that live in my house.

I heart dots and probably don't even use them right since I'm old and stupid and have no clue as to how the life of an 8th grader should be.

I heart MY LIFE and I really, really, really, heart ur blog!!!???!!!???!!!?@#$%^&*()_

Laura said...

I "heart" all of your posts Emma! you sure brighten my day! :) I didnt know there was a term for this ...... hehe!

RhondaLue said...

I heart ellipsis dots too!!!

And exclamation points!!!

But mostly I love the *asterisk*! Most people pronounce it incorrectly like this: asterick. But *I* know how to say it correctly. It has so many uses but *I* like to use it to add emphasis. Isn't it so fun? I heart punctuation!
