Welcome to my web log. This is already the second post. The first one is way more interesting.
So – blog is short for ‘web log’. The first time I heard ‘blog’ I said, as you can imagine, “what?” I guess the W and the E are passe. Out of fashion. Gauche, even. Or maybe, in these trying times, that extra syllable is just too much commitment. I mean, come on, we’ve got things to do and places to be, and in the spirit of shortening ‘you’ into ‘U’ and ‘I’m going to” into “Imma”, spelling and sounding out those extra vowels and consonants just seems irresponsible. Let’s review some of the ultra-modern, time-saving word revisions that can make all our lives easier, shall we?
peeps = people
L8R = Later
AFAIK = As Far As I Know
BRB = Be Right Back
BTW = By The Way
CYAL8R = See You Later
FYI = For Your Information
G2G = got to go (I just found this out now while doing research for this entry)
H&K = Hug and Kiss
IC = I See
IMHO = In My Humble Opinion
LOL = Laughing out loud
OIC = Oh, I See
OTTOMH = Off The Top of My Head
ROFL = Rolling On Floor Laughing
ROFLMAO = Rolling on the floor laughing my ass off
TTFN = Ta Ta For Now
TTYL = Talk To you Later
So get out their and prove to the world that you’re an idi…uh…web savvy.
