Pam, I like yours from work: YMMV and WOMBAT. I think I'll have lots of uses for those. As for PK? Don't guess we'll be needing THAT one anymore. :( They went out of business with $20 of my subscription money.

What does bump to top mean?

Current threads are shown at the top of message boards, so the most recent posts are likely to be seen by members. Sometimes posts get skipped or don't get many views, so members will reply with 'btt' or 'bump' in order to move the post to the top of the list. That way, anyone who hadn't noticed the thread previously can see it and reply. Also, if a post is old but still vaild- and particularly if a board has had a big influx of new members- members can bump a thread so that everyone knows about the information found in it. So bump to top means exactly that: bump the thread to the top of the board!

Iím right there with Jaime's grandma. Only Iím and English as a second language teacher. Reading some of the posts was starting to make me feel like I was in one of my classes and wondering if we were still ďspeakingĒ in English or if it had morphed into something else. Thanks for the clarification.

Thank you all for all for this great list. Here I have thinking that LOL (lol), translated to lots of love. I hope I was not laughing out loud when I should not have been in some of my replies. I was trying to send warm fuzzies.

That is SOOOOO funny. I just "assumed" that the DH was the harsher version and abbreviated for obvious reasons. I also thought it was done in fun so in my quirky mind that is how I will remember it- but I came searching for this info so thanks ladies for all the info.

TTFN is one of my absolute favorite sayings. It is so fun and bubbly. I also use TAM Thanks a million but I do not know if this is a weird 'Judy thing' or if other people say it too. Wow.... I keep a running tally in my outlook notes to use as a cheatsheet- If anyone is interested [see attached]... I add whenever I hear more

Hi there, check out this link to help you with brushes. I don't know what kind of software you use so this link may not help as it's for PSE 3. If you need more help go the the SG University. The SG University link is at the very top of this site right under the Girls part of SCRAP GIRLS logo.

Hope this helps.

In my neck of the weeds, being in a service business add'l charges were ID'd as such, informally, and never documented but understood:
The PITA charge: Pain in the a** - additional charge for those who took up more of your time as a professional than you were compensated for, and
The JIC charge: Just in case - You anticipated forgetting to include some essential charges in your estimated costs, so just in case...., mark it up 10%!!
These were always a joke..., or were they?

I run a baby forum and we have a TON of abbreviations, however I don't think that most of them apply here. LOL!!! Here are a few I don't see on your list:

ATM: At The Moment
FWIW: For What It's Worth
IYKWIM: If You Know What I Mean
MIL: Mother-In-Law
FIL: Father-In-Law
BIL: Brother-In-Law
SIL: Sister-In-Law
WAHM: Work At Home Mom


That's all I can think of ATM *wink*, I will post again if I think of more common ones. :)
