Great idea, DA. You've covered the well-used and important ones. Here's some "chatty" ones that took me a while to understand...
:

<span style="font-weight: bold">[color:"purple"] SIL: sister-in-law
MIL: mother-in-law
FIL: father-in-law
DH: dear/darlin' husband OR it may be dreadful husband.

FI: fiance
DD: dear/darling daughter

[/color]</span>

LMHO: I mean Laughing my Head off when I use that!

DH is not always "Dear husband" it could mean he needs to wear a condom on his head.

Foot Enema - when someone needs to have their hiney kicked!

TC-Tiffany Cathedral

DT - DON'T TALK!!!!!!!!

One question: What is an e-ring? I have seen that one a lot and was just curious what exactly that means! I like this dictionary! I hate to admit it, but I didn't know a few of those!

AA - An e-ring is an engagement ring, often purchased by a DFH (darling future hubby)

Thanks so much for starting this for we neewbies. Most are very obvious, but we feel really stupid on the ones we didn't get. For me it was the OEC--I had thought it was a brand or something. Again, thanks.

I have a request, please. Everyone who posts has a word or a phrase under the name, i.e "anythingartzy" has Omniscient under hers. What do these words mean? Are they assigned or does the poster chose them?

Thanks, Kimie. I appreciate the education. I guess I'll just have to work on my number of posts, huh?
