LOL! There are a lot of those I didn't know. I'll have to come back and bone up on these. How about TTFN, my version of TTYL--Tata for now! And PITA--one I just learned recently--Pain in the A*s and finally, KWIM -- Know what I mean?
Thanks for sharing these and helping us old gals get up to speed!

Kathy said...

FRENCH!! How did you get that photo of me at my computer!!!!!.

Bridget says TTFN, I say BBFN bye bye for now.

and LOL always meant Lots of Love to me in the UK so when people I hardly knew started using it here, I thought WOW the people here are friendly, haha. I will start using some of these, scare the hell out of my kids while texting them haha.

PS French - I have been tagged, Come and play the Seven Song Tag Game, I know you love your music. The rules are on my today's post, hope you have time to play along, if not, that's okay. Kathy

This reminds me of when I first went on the internet played backgammon online. A friend that I had played backgammon with quite often, had typed in LMAO. I asked him what that mean't and he wrote "laugh my ass off". Stupid me, I thought LMAO was Spanish since he was from California. Later on I realized it wasn't Spanish but the first letters of each word. I still laugh at myself for being so stupid.

Rue said...

I know quite a few of these and Rich knows all of them. He reads Annie's texts to make sure she's only talking to friends.
