message 4: by Sashana (new)

Sashana I see 'dwl' around alot. Do u guys know what that one means? And I'll add SMH to the list aka shakes my head.

message 5: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Thanks Rachel.

Carol Cork *Young at Heart Oldie* (httpsrakesandrascalswordpresscom) Thanks everyone. This is very useful because I am often wandering 'what on earth does that mean' when someone has used an acronym.

message 7: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin (princ3ssjasmin) @carol, same goes for me :))

message 8: by Sashana (new)

Sashana Hey Jasmin, maybe you could also do book acronyms. I've seen people using 'UF' or 'PNR' and I literally had to sit and think about what they meant lol.

message 9: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin (princ3ssjasmin) @sashana, I felt ignorant for asking wat it was about. tried looking some in the net like HEA and all i could come up w/ is Hektoen Enteric Agar w/c is something used for the culturing of bacteria haha.

w/ the UF, i have no idea wat that means :\

message 10: by Sashana (new)

Sashana ha ha I feel your pain...Someone told me that it means Urban Fantasy. Don't feel bad. Some one used GR and it took me some time ri realize that they meany goodreads. You can literally have conversation in acronyms now.

message 11: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin (princ3ssjasmin) @sashana thanks for enlighting me. I knew this forum would come out handy. if there's more you would like to share, please post away :)

message 13: by Jasmin (new)

Jasmin (princ3ssjasmin) @heather, I was too ignorant, I literally had to look that up :))

message 14: by Heather (new)

Heather | 504 comments Heh-heh! Watch out Jasmin, you'll be using at some point! My friend was texting me and I replied back LMK. She texted me back and spelled it out and asked me why I didn't just spell it out. I replied that I liked driving her crazy. She didn't LOL but gave me a heh..

message 15: by Jasmin (last edited Jul 09, 2010 11:09PM) (new)

Jasmin (princ3ssjasmin) wow, another new one. Totally had no idea wat LmK was. haha, i think im getting the hang of the acronyms a bit. Is there an acronym IDK?

My daughter had used IDK with a friend of mine she was texting and my friend wrote back and asked what it meant. She of course wrote I don't know, she wrote back "then why are you using it". LOL

message 34: by Sashana (new)

Sashana It's funny that you said that Rachel cuz there's actually a book like that. ttyl (Internet Girls, #1) by Lauren Myracle I've never read it and I don't plan to because I think I'd get fed up with reading a book with mostly acronyms.

message 35: by Lauren (new)

Lauren | 931 comments I saw that book (^) in an Atlantic book shop. I picked it up, read the back cover, and put it back down. Looks like an annoying book.
