Internet Lingo March 12, 2008

If you’re new to the internet or the blog world, you may have noticed that there is a lingo unique to internet users.  Several of my readers have asked that I explain what some of these terms mean.  So this page is a crash course in internet lingo.  I hope it’s helpful.

**Disclaimer** This list is definitely not comprehensive.  It is only intended to define the terms that I use frequently here on this blog. 

So here you go….a crash course in internet lingo……

ROFL = Rolling On the Floor Laughing

LMBO = Laughing My Butt Off

LOL = Laugh Out Loud

OMGosh = Oh My Gosh (yes, I know it makes me sound like an episode of “Leave it to Beaver”)

KWIM – Know What I Mean?

DD – Dear Daughter

DS – Dear Son

DH – Dear Husband

If you know more lingo and would like to share it, please feel free to leave a comment.  As people surf the net, they may find your suggestions really helpful!

    IM aka instant messaging aka AIM aka Texting aka SMS (short message service) uses a whole raft of shorthand such as:

    brb – be right back
    g2g or gtg – got to go
    pir – parents in room
    rir – ‘rents (parents) in room
    pwos – parents watching over shoulder
    rwos – (you can figure that one out, right?)
    cya – see ya
    l8tr – later
    tnx – thanks
    k – okay
    np – no problem
    y – yes
    n – no

    And then there are the smileys… 🙂
