enough is enough

Spontaneity keeps conversation keen, and if you switch things up (just a bit!) there is a definish chance that everyone will want to chat over cronuts.  Okay, okay, everyone might be an exaggeration, but I promise I (yes me!) will appreciate the quirkisms in your banter.
Maybe it’s just a silly rant, but I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired.  No, kidding, that’s not my rant — I’ve just always wanted to use that expression.  I giggle when I hear it said on TV, and then I want to suggest the complainer sip some OJ and take a nap.  I mean, right? They’ll be healthier and rested in a nanno hour. Problem solved.
My true rant rests with the common usage of ‘pretty please.’  Can I pretty please make it stop?  It’s not that I’m against politeness — no sir, no mam — I just wish please didn’t always have to be so pretty.  Does that make any sense?
Is it too much to ask for please to be passionate, peaceful, proper or polite?  Pick your adjective witty writers, but stay away from the commonplace pretty, please?  Alright, rant aside, I created this ILY graphic yesterday at 2pm when someone explained the mysterious origins of the acronym.  Did you know ILY is ‘net slang for ‘i love you?’  Me either.  Time to read more Urban Dictionary, yes?
As for these pictures, Jon and I have been making a point of exploring all the Minneapolis ‘hoods.  Our most recent excursion took us to Northeast, and we decided the Stone Arch Bridge wins the award for ‘best view of the city.’  We liked the view so much, in fact, that we stopped everything for a smoocher in the center.
Wishing everyone a lovely weekend — enjoy that summer sun!

  1. I rarely use pretty please. I’m fairly certain I only use it when I want to be cutesy or annoying. I hadn’t heard of ILY, but I do know of 143, another abbreviation based off the number of letters in each word.

  2. So, what adjective did you use with please to get the person who took the photograph of you and Jon together? 😉

    I love the playful nature of your words in this post. A touch of whimsy floats between your thoughts and it is very charming. As always, wonderful photos and very enjoyable post, have a great weekend yourself 🙂

  3. no more pretty please, please!!!! I love how much y’all get out and adventure around town! We definitely have so much to see and need to do the same 🙂

  4. This was rather random, it felt a bit like skipping from one thought to the next. Totally normal, in my book. I HAD heard of ILY, before, I guess that makes me young and hip, right?

  5. You’re so right, pretty please is absolutely not acceptable (and a bit annoying if we are being frank.) Loved see the photo of you two so happy and so in love! Have a wonderful weekend Jennifer, you deserve it xo

  6. Yes!! Darrin and I take so many walks down main street. Such a sweet final photo! You could probably see my apartment from the bridge! You and your hubby have to head to the Mill City Farmer’s Market right by the Gutherie. They’ve got some great breakfast food trucks for an early Saturday morning! 🙂

  7. Wonderful graphics and pics. Look how cute you two are on that iconic bridge! I remember using pretty please when I was younger. It went hand in hand with cross my heart and hope to die, stick a needle in my eye🙋

  8. Argh, I have friends who use so many of those internet abbreviations. It drives me a bit nuts after a while. I make a point not to use them and I despise some of the more negative ones like FML (WHY would anyone speak negatives over themselves like that!!). Anyway, lovely photos and I understand your frustration with pretty please. I don’t think I’ve ever used it (have you heard people say the extended version ‘with a cherry on top’?? That one is even worse!) xx

Tell me something happy:
