Her current status: Georgia's HS FB friend: Could sum1 plez buy me the kings of leon tickets*o and iam gonna need 1 4 joni... 150 each..just got there cd and that lead singer could do and have whteva he wanted2 me as long as he sings 2me! hahaSeriously? Because we graduated together from the same high school and somehow I learned how to write like an adult.

    wtf? I don't even know what she's trying to say.

    I think she's saying she wants one of her friends to spend $300 on tickets so she and Joni (her daughter?) can go see a concert. She will also let the lead singer boink her in whatever way he desires as long as he sings to her.

    I get really annoyed with text speak.  My 21 year old sister uses it and it drives me crazy.  My least favorite is "da" for "the".  Sometimes she'll even speak like that in a conversation, and I have to stop talking to her so my head doesn't explode.

I would have had to have them come in to tell me what exactly they were trying to let me know! Also, I didn't know texting was a proper way to call in? Goodness gracious!
