I have something to admit. I’m really not stupid I promise but I had a real Olive from On the Buses moment this morning. I’ve always wondered what the abbreviation LOL stands for when people post a comment etc. and I’ve been very confused for a very long time genuinely wondering why people sometimes pepper their posts with what I though was an abbreviation for Lots of Love. Doh. Doh and Doh again. I overhead a woman in the Starbucks queue this morning describing an e mail she sent to some friend and she did the whole inverted comma’s action “laughing out loud” with her fingers. Halle-bloody-luja – it’s only taken quite a few years to click but at least now I know what the hell people are going on about. I’m not really one for abbreviations so I don’t T I B U I I T F (that’s “think I’ll be using it in the future” for all you abbrevo’s). Lots of Love xxx

    Err, no. Give up. Something something for laughing? I know – R you On for Fucking Lunch? Oh – it’s too much like sudoku – fucking irritating and boring. What is it then? Sorry – got my fucking swearing head on tonight!

    "real orange flavoured lollies" Honest. I asked my god-daughter since she’s way more trendy and with it than I am and she swears this is the correct definition. <br/><br/>BTW. Don’t worry about not knowing what LOL means. I had to look it up on the net. How sad is that?

    Carrying on from the "camp" theme from your last blog, ROFL was an abbreviation started by Robinson "I’m Free" Crusoe.<br/><br/>It stands for:<br/>Roll On Friday Later.

    Thanks guys. Oh no, what does BTW stand for? Burgers Trap Wind? Obviously my rain is not wired for abbreviations – I must therefore be V C I. LOL. Aagh…I’ve started using abbreviations. Stop it now.
