A BvonB FYI, on the QT

Ah, the acronym.

Who, in their right mind, does not love this little language tool?

While some find them really irksome, you must give a nod to the genius of it all - it is the perfect test for separating the wheat from the chaff. The cool from the mere tepid.

In the urban world, it can code a section of town - SOMA [South of Market(SF) or South of Main(Vancouver)], SOHO [South of Houston] or Tribeca [Triangle Below Canal Street].

In the restaurant world, there's the memorable TIP (To Insure Prompt service).

In the blogosphere, there is the popular mandate, NaBloPoMo, which stands for a movement that encourages National participants to write a Blog Post daily for an entire month.

This is intriguing, yet a little daunting for me. I like the inclusiveness (Na) consistency, but am a little put-off by the bossiness of it all, and slightly rashy at the time commitment (Mo).

A Mo is a whole lotta time to BloPo daily.

So, I decided to scale things back slightly in vonBloggenschtern world.

I was going to go with BvonBFuHuThriWe, but found this to also be a little daunting, and more than a little performance anxiety- inducing.

Instead, I've settled on something acheivable: PePuWaDa.

Personal Pug Walk Daily.

I think I can make this magic happen.

That was fun to read, but now I'm dizzy!

I decided to jump write into NaBloPoMo... so far I've kept up.

"A Mo is a whole lotta time to BloPo daily."

Really good stuff.

Too funny! I had no idea where you were going with this, but you had me for the whole ride.

In Seattle it is SODO which is South of Downtown, but wouldn't that be SOD? Which brings us to a the Jethro Tull classic... "you poor old sod, you see it's only me".

I have no idea where I'm going with this. I will say the Von B pug is lucky as the brute squad doesn't get walked daily.

Perhaps I need to check on my acronyms. They must be sagging.

I've never had the guts to do NanoBloPoMo. Plus, what's the point, turn out mediocre crap daily? Maybe they should call it NaNoPoMeCraPoMo.
