Yeah thanks.

Some of this stuff just accumilates after time and you just sort of pick it up but I never heard of most of those. Use lol, rofl, and ttfn mostly.

Yesterday my sister said HAGD (Have a good day) and I said "What did you call me?" We had a good chuckle about it. Chatting is such fun and I love how much more connected I feel now that I use it.

I don't even have a phone anymore msn is my phone. And the Winks are fun too.

IIRC = If I Remember Correctly

OR

IIRC = If I Recall Correctly

I've seen both versions used by people.
