# 60: AAAAAAAAA

XYZ!

PDQ!

Haha, made you look! ROFL

Remember ABC Gum?

This week’s Journaler’s Junction Challenge is brought to you by The AAAAAAAAA (All American Association Against Acronym And Abbreviation Abuse Anonymous).

Abbreviations. Acronyms. Initials.

We’ve always used them but with the internet and per-character-charges for text messages, we use them more. KWIM?

You can write your journaling about a particular abbreviation or acronym, or you could write USING them ( please include a glossary for numbskulls like me! )

ACRONYM = Alphabetical Code for Remembering Odd Names You Make up

BTW, KISS!

XYZ PDQ = Examine Your Zipper Pretty Darn Quick

ROFL = Rolling On the Floor, Laughing

ABC = Already Been Chewed

KWIM = Know What I Mean?

BTW = By The Way

KISS = Keep It Simple, Silly

P.S. (Post Script) Here’s a fun site to get you in the mood:

Challenge #59 – It’s not so bad…

Monday, January 21st, 2008

Here’s the thing – no matter how good a photographer you are, sometimes you just don’t get a good shot. Whether the lighting was horrible, the action moved too fast or you just tripped over your own feet (trust me, it happens!), sometimes you just don’t get that “scrap-worthy” photo you were looking for. But doesn’t the story deserve to be told anyway?

So that’s my challenge to you: Take some bad photos that have a story to tell and tell that story as if you had gorgeous photos. Even if the pictures are blurry, out of focus, underexposed (name your poison!), if they’re all you’ve got then use them. I can’t wait to hear their story.

Here’s my take:

bad photos
