Acronyms

I get asked about them often enough that I thought maybe a sidebar might help n00bs.

Which of my idiosyncratic acronyms have I left out? (I.e. not ones in common use and readily-Googlable; just the one's I've cooked up in the lab.)

I am pretty certain you are eavesdropping on my conversations with my husband! I just said the other evening "What do you suppose DAOD means?"

Stop it! The listening in, I mean - not the posting. :~0

H&T

Sir Aaron said...

I thought HT was hat tip and H&T was hither and thither?

DJP said...

On this blog, anyway, hat-tip is usually h-t; HT is "Hither and Thither."

I guess I used to do H&T, but now it's HT, to save time. (Proof.)

Now that's evolution.

Sir Aaron said...

BCBT = Biblical Christianity Brain Trust

Yeah, it definately follow evolutionary theory. You used H&T as recently as October 2, 2009. It seems like a million years ago, so I'll just use that number.

DJP said...

It's, um, exponential.

While it isn't one of your coinages (as you pointed out here), DV doesn't appear to be "readily-Googlable," and I seem recall seeing people ask what it means just about every time it shows up.

EECC Eddie Eddings Calvinistic Cartoons opps H&G

Rafe :)

HCIKG

SolaMommy said...

Oh, so THAT'S what h-t means!

Peter Eddy said...

Obviously I know them now, Dan, but I agree with reallyrobins that DAOD is an important one that you use over and over again.

BSIL is another one that belong's there, though you don't use it as often, I find.

WDTBHTDWC? = "What does this blog have to do with Biblical Christianity"

Susan said...

Was TIWIARN your term or Phil's?

Oh, you also referred to Valerie as DW once.

(BTW, what is HCIKG??--Oh, wait--I remember now. Forget it.) :)

Susan said...

(Clarification: I think "DW" came from one of your FB comments.)

DJP said...

Phil, mocking Frank.

DJP said...

Hard to believe I'd use "DW," for fear of being accused of saying "dish washer."

Susan said...

"Well! I never!" [/hypothetical Valerie quote]

One does not have to be a noob to SOH (scratch one's head) over your acronyms. You are the KOA (king of acronyms).
