Is Baby O "awakle" or "aspeel?"

When you're home all day with a baby, there's a fair amount of downtime. The housekeeper is here today, so she's cleaning, O is sleeping, and I'm screwing around on my computer. This is a transcript of the silliness I get into on IM. Names have been removed to protect the ridiculous (but those of you know know us wil get it...):

V: nice. i wonder whats on them
R: drunken christmas party, home renovation, and Maurice

V: you have cute handwriting
R: tks ::blushes::

V: i know i tried to get into it, but it didn't work for me
R: this tune or catherine wheel in general?
V: i think her in general
R: not a her. a band w/male frontman and no women

V: i see. good to know
R: the fount of useless knowledge runs clear today
V: you are cute. same prize just more of it
R: i love me the lint. i know
V: i think you are making a hairshirt out of lint. so perhaps a lint shirt
R: actually, i'm spinning lint yarn to knit a poet blouse
V: wow so pretty ..
R: here's my lint shirt.

R: we ARE funny
V: did you and M make reservations for A's wedding yet? i was thinking about doing that this weekend and thought we should coordinate a litte

V: get out of my HEAD!
R: no way, dude
V: question.. do we know if A and J are doing anything for the out of town folks? like a friday night party?
R: no idea. but i can ask him. i have NO manners
V: i know you don't. but that works for me. also what should i wear?
R: omg.
V: i think i am going ot get my aria dress hemmed. i just can't figure out to what length
R: i'm thinking my chocolate silk ralph lauren skirt and a black corset/strapless top and sasstastic heels. i have the skirt
just need the corset. and i have whorish shoes
V: b/c you are a whore wanna be
R: trunuff
V: i bet R has something you can borrow . i need new shoes!
R: yeah her size 6 insect feet would yield something for the canoes below my ankles?
V: i need to think about who to appoint car pool captain. it will make me feel better. damn shame J won't live here anymore
R: have fun with that
V: thanks. i want to get them a hat that says i am captain carpool, b/c it sounds funny
R:it IS funny. i won't even pretend to be interested
V: i know you aren't
V: maybe thats how i can ask J. lets try a run through. "hey J .. want a hat that says captain carpool?"
R: as J: are you insane?
V: "yes i am. why do you ask?"
R: as J: of course i don't want a hat that says captain carpool
V: its a shame he isn't seeing this he would laugh
R: as J: but fancypants or jesus might? [that's me and my husband]
R: FancyPants and Jesus G--- cordially invite you to carpool your ass to Worcester, the cesspool of New England, with them...
V: yay
