Kathy, you are good. Not complaining at all.

Cycles are funny things. Who knew Jane Fonda and Cindy Crawford would still be cause for discussion when most (if not all) of their productions are on VHS only in the US market.

It really doesn't take any time to add these on. And yours were in alphabetical order when you gave them to me, so that does make it easier.

I am open to any and all additions. I am not filtering them. If you (the universal you) think they need to go on, they go on. I have learned a lot doing it, like the name Tracy at one time was very, very popular, as was Anna and Ana.

Has anyone mentioned:

ETA - Edited to Add

It took me forever to figure out what it meant as I thought, "Estimated Time of Arrival".

Laura, that's a great one. I wasn't sure about what ETA stood for until a few months ago and I've been on the board for years!

Maybe also a reference to yayas as people are always asking for links to that board?

I have been to yayas, but like a lot of people, I find it difficult to find/get into/continue to get into. Even though I save everything and have it remember me, it never does. I gave up in disgust a couple of years ago so I have kind of forgotten what it is other than generically another board with less rules and many offshoots.

Tell me what to write, and I will.

ETA: My internet went out in the middle of this (thanks, Comcast). Should I give a link to YaYas?

Of course there's always the "thutt". That is the little 2 inch area between your butt and your thigh. Sometimes known as the "bu-thigh".

I've never heard/seen that (and it's pretty ugly sounding !).

...AND I didn't know what "IRW" was. Can't recall what my my mind decided it was

Great work, paideiamom!

Doms

Is "DOMS" pronounced with a short "O" or a long "O?" I use a long "O," but if there's a correct way, I"d like to know.

Thanks a lot for compiling this. I recently came back after a long absense and it took me ages to figure out what all the new acronyms mean. It would be nice if people were more conscious of this when posting - even if they just wrote things out the first time in a thread. Might make it easier for new people to get involved.

This could be even more useful if all the instructors & video titles were linked to their respective review pages. Lots of work for the OP though... would be good to have a wiki for things like this.
