Ok ladies, after the last discussion we have changed a few things....
removed GDN so not to offend, and added a few new ones.

Mamato Ruby Violet joy.gif(6 with autism) and someone 1sttri.gif who should make him/herself known sometime in the next month.

well i dont' mind change but i don't mind af either. i don't have any old-school connotations because i never neard the term until a few years ago when i was ttc. so i thought it was just a ttc term. eitehr way, i'm easy.

BRR is leading the pack! Yay!

<------- Go Queen of Crotch Talk, go!

I also like MP.... I think we could agree to use both, actually And the people who want to keep using AF can (some people still use "DH", right?).

I wanna want Moon Time, it's so godessy and one of my friends uses it IRL, but I love Bright Red Reboot!

It's got a sense of humor and it's TTC oriented, and it's totally neutral about the actual event.

Who's going make the computer-screen going red smilie?

Ok, I voted for BRR - a small variation from my RR from pre-ttc days...although I gotta say, I will probably continue to use AF.

Bright Red reboot seems gross, offensive and juvinile to me. I though the idea was to find something more mature? I voted but to tell you the truth i'll stick with AF before I even think about typing that. :ignore

I think we were trying to get away from something elementary school and go for something middle or high school, actually : Or that what I would assume with this group of women anyway! : (I'm one, too :LOL)

HHH = hot hunky husband (or hot horny husband, when you use it around ovulation!) I mostly use it as "hot hunky" cause the "horny" goes without saying, in my house :

We're pretty silly around here... and yes, juvenile too : : :LOL : :

Everytime I see "bright red reboot" I think it says "bright red robot" and I just crack up.

I'm good with AF (mostly cuz I love the smilie for it) or MP (though I keep thinking Minister of Parliament...).

Since I'd never heard of AF until I started TTC, it doesn't have any "prim and proper, embarrassed about my body" connotations.

I am fine with AF.

I don't see a problem at all.

BBR :

totally cracks me up. Yea, juvenile. so is AF., Someitmes youjust have to be a little juvenile about this sort of thing to make it bearable.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
