Nah, not exclusive, because I've gotten it twice and I am not really part of anybody's club! All it is is one of those meme things, someone says "you're frosted" then you're supposed to frost someone else.

Hi,

Sometimes I don't understand some phrases in people's signatures. What does "I've been frosted" and "I've been booed" mean? (I visit the pregnancy forums regularly and see these there.) (Should I have put this question there instead? If so, sorry.)

Thanks!

I was just about to post this question? I don't really understand DDDDCs either, for that matter. Do this things mean something specific? When someone is boo'd, I would assume that's negative, right?

I've seen these phrases in a lot of people's signatures. Curious. Thanks.

We do this thing at work where you "boo" someone on halloween. There is some poem you stick in someone's mailbox, they are supposed to copy it and pass it on till the whole work place has been "boo"-ed. I assume here it is similar, but someone PMs you. I personally don't like it here, because I wasn't boo'd and I haven't been frosted. Even if it is just for fun, I feel totally left out. . . .sorry .

No, you have to have been frosted to frost someone else. It's like a chain letter, only it's cute.

I thought frosting was jewelry or on a cake? So how is everyone getting frosted??

Well I just got frosted, but I'm not going to send it along, until I know what "being frosted" means? Sorry I'm just that way (oh I don't do chain letter either)

Truth is, when I got frosted I didn't want to send it along either. Got the feeling it was something Christmas-y, and, well, everyone in this house is Jewish. And besides, we live in the Middle East and there's no frost around here, for sure.

But eventually caved. Didn't want to be accused of Grinchiness.

Being frosted is by pm it is just for fun. Something to do to fill the time. If you go over in TAO you will see a almost a huge thread on it. I have been "frosting" people all day

Nope. I think it's pretty dumb. It just takes up time, which I don't have enough of. And then if I don't do it, I get that "chain letter guilt." Plus, it takes up space in the very limited sig lines.
