De-acronymizing?

</td>
weather: sunny
mood: curious

What is it with people who use "seedee", "deeveedee" and "teevee" for "CD", "DVD" and "TV"? It's like nails on chalkboard to me.

Gawd, if you're going to use more letters anyway, don't make yourself look like even more of an idiot... Spell it all out. =P

Y'know what that de-acronymizing reminds me of? It reminds me of the recent stupid trend of making a movie based on a well known novel by some great master and then publishing a novelization of the movie. >K{ How retarded is that?

Ewww. I don't think I've ever seen that done except for tv (teevee) but even that's been rare. That's pretty hideous.

I usually only see "teevee" used when describing someone else's speech (usually to imply they're a bit slow).

Of course, I'm old enough to remember \<-RaD and \<00l, so...
