Keeping Up With the Vernacular

Thanks to NPR I am able to stay culturally literate as far as Instant Messenger slang goes. (SMS isn't that much of a thing in the U.S.)

Quotes form the NPR Website:
"GWTL
Get with the Lingo! Okay, we made that one up. But these other IM terms are real.

BBL: Be Back Later
BRB: Be Right Back
IMHO: In My Humble Opinion
JK: Just Kidding
LOL: Laughing Out Loud
LYLAS: Love You Like a Sister
NP: No Problem
OMG: Oh My God
OTP : On the Phone
ROFL: Rolling on Floor Laughing
TTFN: Ta-Ta for Now
TTYL: Talk to You Later
YW: You're Welcome"


...And here's some picks from netlingo.com

AAK Asleep At the Keyboard
AAR8 At Any Rate
AAS Alive And Smiling
AAYF As Always Your Friend
ADAD Another Day Another Dollar
ADIH Another Day In Hell
ADIP Another Day In Paradise
AEAP As Early As Possible...
