Washionary - Dictionary of Wash Acronymns and Skype Directory

Every now-and-again one of us comes up with an expression or words the others haven't met before.........

they are too good to forget........ so, to all those with CRS I dedicate this thread where you can add your own special words. Have fun!

With a worldwide membership, we often come up with local words which need some explanation. Add to that words invented by members and special acronyms, and you get a language which can often befuddle new members.

What follows is the current Washionary compiled by mmcaloon, it will be updated from time to time.


And here is a link to the Skype thread, I have attached the current list of members' Skype names below in post #3

I feel so dumb, but what does "LOL" mean? I see that all the time in emails and I'm clueless.

Here's a new one for you:

GOLPUTSALOTOTI = "Groups Of Letters People Use To Save A Lot Of Time Typing On The Internet"

Sorry, but that's what happens when you try to be funny in a post at 2AM when any other fool would be in bed!

Re: Washionary - Dictionary of Wash Acronymns and Skype Directory

No idea, the washionary is for acronyms used in the watercolor forum.

Maybe abbreviations for send, find.
