LOVE IT (but wish he hadn't split that infinitive right at the end). But: LOVE IT. Passing it on.

Jen, marvelous video. There are times when I feel so inarticulate because I can't write the way I perceive others will want to read in the cool, hip lingo that is so prevalent in societal conversations in this day and age. So what happens is that I stop writing..or in my case blogging. Thanks for the reminder.

That was FANTASTIC! I HAVE to use that in my Language class on Monday. I actually have my darlings monitoring themselves for the number of times they use the terms 'like' and 'ya know'. FAH-BYOU - LUS dahlink!

Jeanie said...

Very good! I never would have stumbled on this otherwise!

Rebecca said...

oops. I'm definitely going to, like, really try to totally stop myself from, like, speaking like this. Today. ya know?

when I quickly glanced at this video when you posted it last week, I felt like Huh? how weird is this? Am I supposed to read it? What is this about?

It was very confusing, you know? Maybe I was simply too tired at that moment to check your post, not sure.


I gave it another go now and I got it. It makes me reflect on our communication. Thanks for sharing

good morning, Jen! (it's saturday, the sun is out, no work to do, well, you know what i mean, sure there's stuff to do in and around the house) but anyway... this was great! Listened to the whole thing, laughed. and really enjoyed the "typed" presentation for its affect on the message. Happy weekend!
