Ah, shucks. :-)
Some more I thought of while biking 10 virtual miles yesterday afternoon:
CDE -- Corrections Duly Expected [a more negative version of IIRC]
TUV -- Totals Usually Vary [adaption of "Totals may not equal 100% due to
rounding", and roughly synonmous with YMMV, Your Mileage May Vary]
JKM -- Joking, Kinda, Maybe, meaning "it was sort of funny when I wrote it,
but you might not find it as funny"; or Just Killing Mimes [obscure Bloom
County reference], which was sort of funny when I wrote it, but you might
not find it as funny
It's totally possible to have multiple explanations for an abbreviation, as
long as they have a synonymous meaning.
It only dawns me now as I am about to hit send that the alphabet doesn't
have JKM. :-)
