The Anatomy of an Acronym

Blogroll Me!

A few months ago, if my memory serves me correct (and PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong and it wasn't him), PsychoToddler decided that his commenters should make phrases from the letters they need to copy from word verification in order to leave comments.

It was a wonderful idea...albeit a short-lived one. At the time, the commenters, myself included, left phrases that had to do with the topic of the particular post. They were spontaneous, they were funny, they were almost a bonus to the post and to its comments.

Maybe I can resurrect that practice here. "If you will it, it is no dream." (Okay, so I'm a day late in quoting that...)

So please, if you may, spell out a phrase with the verification letters you see whenever commenting, and the wackier the better. Perhaps in time an entire post will be devoted to THE PEOPLES' FAMOUS PHRASES.

I'll start, so check out the comments section.

If progeny hate, ancestors whine.

(I cheated; I found a combo of letters I could work with. On three previous tries, they all had many X's in them --yuck!)

Ummm, Pearl, "If you will it, it is no dream" was by Theodore Herzl.

You must be thinking of "I have a dream..."


(uurse - Ummm, use right sources exclusively)

Boy, am I shame-faced...!

I guess all dreams sound the same.

Thanks for pointing out the errors of my ways, Mr. California...um, I mean DR. California.


On nonsense we ruminate or rationalize terrifically.

Swiftly we fly, Jersey crows.

Wow, this is fun, plus it makes me feel smart. Though I have no idea what it means.

Yes, you may visit again and again and again. It is fun, and I wish that more people would introduce this "waste of time activity" on their blogs. HINT, HINT.

Pearl...come read my latest post for some "waste of time activity" (shameless plug, sorry)

why are we to always look wonderful?

Sorry mine's like a mini story...

CM & Rebecca, thanks for the input.

Are we having fun yet???? This gets the creative juices flowing, especially at 7 a.m., huh, Rebecca?
