Emo, there's never an end to talking about that one on a daily basis. I got called emo today because I was wearing skinny jeans.

In a group of 10 year olds the boys received their new competition speedos and the girls started giggling calling them day. I cooly responded that my husband wears a speedo(used to in swimteam but they don't know that) and that ended that conversation since they all think he's "dreamy".

I'll wait for one of them to bust out with the urbandictionary.com reference. Until then, I'll remain opposed to the new adjective.

Like in a restaurant, a teenage waiter is like, "Like, Dudes, do'ya know what you want."

i am new here, this is my first post... i am helping to raise my little brothers, 14 and an autistic 12 year old,

this thread had me cracking up! the 14 y.o. always says "crap" or "sucks" and occasionally "gay" at the moment, the 12 year old, is in a phase where he will yell "LANGUAGE!!" when he hears bad words, including "crap, sucks, and damn"

on the "gay" used as lame... my gay brother uses this word as lame and i just want to hit him. I don't like it or "retard" i refuse to let anybody get away with that in my presence.
thanks for letting me join in.

I am tired of the emo stuff. Out here (rural n. Fl.) it means kids are cutting themselves, saying life is horible, they are horrible. My daughter (who is homeschooled) has about 4 kids calling or IMing with some really destructive stuff. I just found out about one of the situations-she told me it was different but then found out it seemed to be the same stuff-kids starved for attention and turning all the dark side of life on themselves. I don't want her around this for very long periods of time. She will go to the movie tonight with her brother-it has actually been quite a bit better this week . Emotions are intense and fleeting at this age(12-14)-I object to the putting them on really negative,self destructive music rather than the balance of dealing with real life-the happy and the sad.It cana be very negative and very depressing.
