jap - Just Another Pissant. Said on message boards of someone who isn't worth the time it would take to deal with her. These are the sort of folks who can cause you to go into a fit of repetitive headdesking.

e.g., You seem to think I'm trying to "change history" when I delete posts that are outdated or have otherwise become superfluous and object to my doing so -- as if they weren't supperfluous from the gitgo. That is not my intent, but I know you're not the only one who has that suspicion. He's what I think of as [a] JAP. He thinks I'm doing it even though he has captured my posts by quoting them in full. Go figure. Once he's done that, he's in complete control -- he can edit his posts and claim I said something I didn't. . . . Ah, I know what I'll do. I'll post an image to make it difficult for him to alter what I said.

jaqueline-of-all-trades - The jaqueline-of-all-trades is more than the female form of jack-of-all-trades. She is a role-switcher who relishes outshining men in the traditionally male dominated pursuits -- such as framing a house, putting up sheetrock, electrical wiring and plumbing, and drinking beer. She is a veritable Swiss Army Wife. Meanwhile, her husband if she's married has learned to adapt and even relish his role as househusband, only being sure to have a hot home-cooked meal ready when she arrives, pooped and sweaty, demanding a cold beer.

e.g., "How sweet it is! Jackie takes care of me and does my jackie-do list. All I need to do is the shopping, prepare meals, keep the house neat and clean, do the wash, manage the household finances, and take care of the kids. She's my hero! My jaqueline-of-all-trades!"
