In other words: acronyms for ladies

5 Nov

The other day I was reading in a forum and came across TTOM. It took me too long to figure out what it stood for, especially since I love acronyms and usually create my own on the fly. This brings me to a special post I’ll dedicate to lesser-known ways to KISS — IOW, a list of acronyms for ladies (sorry, I don’t feel like alphabetizing today):

TTOM: That Time of Month, genius!
IDK: I don’t know. I just love that one!
IDC: I don’t care.
IDK&IDC: Simple math can help you here.
OMGWTF: For Meaghan
POS: In my world, this does not mean ‘Parents Over Shoulder’
W/E: Whatever.
O/W: Otherwise.
EOD: End of day.
EOM: End of message.
DOA: From Meaghan.
DNR: Do Not Resuscitate. See above.
WFC: Work from car… or California. See above again and again.
ROI: Return on investment. That’s a GOOD one.
SID: Shut it down.
FB: Facebook… or the man behind the curtain.
BF: Boyfriend.
GF: Girlfriend.
SS: Shit show.
OBVI: Obviously. Or is it OBV?
BYO: Bring your own.
TMI: Too much info.
PS: Also… in the gossip sense.
WWYLD: What would young Liz do?
NP: no problem.
TK: Editorial — means To Come
BX: Liz: BX? bronx? Yes. Boogie down
Pls send along any I missed, or decode your own with
