What ARE they talking about?

GlossOK.  Hi.  This is Theo.  I seem to have been promoted.  W00T!!

So, here’s a sad truth:  While I am a geek, what I know about building web pages amounts to diddly x squat / bupkis (***ERROR: Division By Zero).  I’m hoping y’all will bear with me while I monkey around with TypePad’s “Compose a New Post” interface, here.  Anyhoo.

With the assistance of Meg and CuteOverload reader Anna Grace, I’ve compiled a rough table of the more common Cute-Isms that have cropped up in the posts & comments round these here parts.  I also threw in some less-common entries because, what the heck, sometimes you just gotta take liberties.  And it was a slow day at the office, and I was having fun.

Again: I’m not a WWWizard.  However, plenty of other folks here are, so the formatting just might improve quite a bit in the coming days.  But for now, without further ado, here they are, the fabulous entries of the shiny new CuteOverload Glossary! Yay!!!  [waves arms around a la Kermit the Frog as the curtain opens]

(I hope you’ve got a little reading time on your hands)

Please note that there should be a permanent link to the Glossary appearing soon in the left-hand margin, under “MORE! MORE! MORE!
