Time to show my ignorance-I keep seeing llama references by peoples icons or in their signatures-what's up with that?

llama is a computer-people word for lamer, i.e. someone who's lame, i.e. boring or just plain bad at something Wink Forum standard does (or at least did) that if you don't set your profile text, it'll say "I'm a llama!" or similar.

These aren't really craftster terms, but I've mostly seen them used here, and people do ask Wink
BF = best friend / boyfriend
GF = girlfriend
DH = dear husband
DD = dear daughter
(etc)
MIL = mother in law

DB= dear brother (someone asked, and the other ones had been answered).
DS= either dear sister, OR dear son
You won't see it here, but some sewing boards have SWAP= Sew with a plan (sewing multiple items that mix and match with each other)
On the clothing boards, you'll very rarely see FBA- full bust adjustment (it's really more for people who use patterns and need to alter them. I've noticed a lot of craftsters don't use patterns or don't  try to be OC about exact fit.)

OC- obsessive compulsive.

I hate how BF is both Boyfriend and Best Friend. My Best Friend is a boy, but he's not my BF -- we're just really really close.  So I always hate using BF and then saying "him" later, so I just use his online handle initials when I talk about him (SA) in a post.

I always wondered what the SA stood for.  Smiley

SilverAdept. Also known as the guy I took to the scrapbox Cheesy  He just doesn't like his real name being bantered about online, and SA is easier than writing SilverAdept each time Cheesy

Understandable.  Smiley   One of my son's friends was playing an online game with him, and I was a bit irked when the friend used my son's real name ingame.  You could always leave the B off the BF, too?  SA works, too, though I imagine you've been asked more than once what it meant.  Smiley

Yeah. Usually I'll word things as "made this for SilverAdept" and then call him SA in the rest of the post, but sometimes I forget if I'm just referencing him randomly.  I love having my weird undefined relationship Cheesy  Everyone we meet swears we're dating because of how we act...even his grandparents welcomed me to the family at his grad school graduation!

I don't think that's craftster specifik, it means "undo", basically. Frogging a knitted piece is to unravel it.
