Who’s Afraid of the LOL?

My friend, Ellin, recently sent me a link to an Article in the Daily Mail written by a very attractive, 71-year-old woman on how to avoid the dreaded LOL label.  Not that long ago, or so it seems, I would sign handwritten letters to friends “LOL,” which meant “Lots Of Love.”  Then, suddenly, one day it meant “Laugh Out Loud.”  Guess I missed the memo.  Now it has apparently undergone yet another acronymic incarnation.  Missed that memo, too. 



According to Tricia Cusden, the author of the aforementioned Daily Mail Article, LOL now means Little Old Lady and is to be avoided at all costs.  Hmmm.  Am I at risk?  After all, I am “little” and I am “old(ish)” and I am definitely a “lady.”  Hmmm.  Well, here are a few things she says about how to avoid it and what I have to say about what she has to say.

The Girls of ‘74

It’s that time of year again when families and friends gather to celebrate the markers of a life – weddings, graduations, reunions, etc. 

On June 1st, the Girls of the Class of 1974 of Rosemont College, Rosemont, Pennsylvania, held their 45th Reunion on the campus grounds.

And now for a bit of personal and TV trivia.  When Agnes Nixon created the hugely popular, long-running soap opera series All My Children, she used the town of Rosemont as a model for the fictional town of Pine Valley, Pennsylvania.  The series debuted in 1970 the year I began my studies as a lowly freshman at Rosemont College.
