Thanks for clearing up the acronyms.. Some I am very familiar with and some I wasn't quite clear on and was afraid to ask.

Heehee, I like that even better! That is ok, on some sites it means Designated Husband, so I think you can still use DH and think Dumb Husband, haha!

oh i definatelly recommend using mmf!! i loved it. it was my first time with it this wkend and i have to admit that i think i might have fallen in love. i was s excited b how easy it was to make- use and eat right off the cake!! o need peeling it off like store bought fondant. and tastes like circus peanuts....not cardboard.. haha not to even mention the money i saved by making it and not buying it..i saved about 16.oo for a dbl batch compared to a large box of wiltons fondant. icon_biggrin.gif

Since I am always lerking around the the "Unanswered Topic" section, I wanted to add the following:

OPBBTL = Old Post Brought Back To Life

I noticed that if it is a post by a new member and it doesn't get any response...they hardly ever post again...and that's sad!

MrsMissey Posted 13 Oct 2005 , 1:10pm

Looks like we need to add this one:


KWIM? = Know what I Mean?

Har, I'd just seen someone post about how their hubby had gone beyond the call of duty with some cake task and thought DH was "Dedicated Husband". I suppose that fits in most places, though. Right?

If I might suggest a couple more "Dears":

DW: Dear Wife (already suggested)
DGF: Dear GirlFriend and
DBF: Dear BoyFriend (not everybody is married to their sweetie)
SO: Significant Other of either gender, married or not, more all purpose

From other forums I frequent:
FWIW: For what it's worth
ASAIK: As far as I know
IIRC: If I recall correctly
Zombie: old, long-dead thread brought back to life. (OK, so that's not an acronym.)
