Default Abbreviations

Help me out here, what are some of the abbreviations you all use? I know what is, but fill me in on some of the others like VBG SDM and G (which I hope is Gosh and not the Lord's name in vain) and whatever else you use. I sit here and try to figure some of them out, but you guessed it............I'm blonde. HA HA (I know what that one is too)
Thanks

Daneen:

SDM; Single Digit Midget: Less than 10 days until you cruise.
VBG: Very Big Grin:
IMO: In My Opinion
IMHO: In My Humble Opinion
G: Grin
DDM: Double Digit Midget: Less than 100 days until you cruise:

There are many more but that's a few of them.

Take care,

Maybe a list of the most frequently used abbreviations should be on the "Message Board Tricks" page?

Cheers,
