parrhesia and I have developed some "skyped" shorties. They are the enunciated form of the text short hand:

burb = brb = be right back

bibble = bbl = be back later

l'mayo = lmao = laugh my a** off

Lets also not forget some useful things you might see while chatting such as the ever popular:

HOMPTAR=Hang on my Pop Tarts are ready.

BRBGARB=Be right back, getting another red bull.

GP=Gotta pee

GPBRB= self explanatory at this point I would think.
