Yeah, thats right ...

I dont like ttyl, what does that even mean ive forgotten? (which is a good thing lol i spose)

But its not like its English school, so as long as they dont make a bad habit its ok i spose...

Why though? Doesn't typing in short on MSN speed the process of talking up?
Definietly does for me, and I'm a fast typer anyway...

It actually slows me down, as I don't, and never have, typed in short form... I guess it just depends on what you're used to.
