Monday Listicles


That’s short for : Hi there, how are you? My own little acronym just for you. Because this time around we are making a list suggested by the lovely Jennifer: 10 acronyms you use regularly. Surprisingly I don’t use any except maybe JPEG ( Joint Photographic Experts Group ) and SOOC ( Straight Out Of Camera). I will admit that occasionally you will see me type LOL in the comments on your listicles but I am always truly laughing to tears when I do! So I asked my husband, who works in the Navy which is famous for never using words and always communicating in acronyms, to write me a list. I thought he will tell you all about that time I read him a text from his boss and said ‘jada jada jada kiss and a hug’. But apparently men don’t send each other kisses and XO stood for Executive Officer. Anyhow, he did write me a list but said it is not PG13 rated. I have no idea what these 10 stand for so I am going to take a wild guess what my husband and his men talk about in the office.

Before I tackle this, let’s see what the plan is for next week! This one will be fab, chosen by super fly Kristi:

Awesome right?

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!



1. WTF
Why the face?

Proper Prior Planning Prevents Pathetic Parental Performance.

3. BZ
Boy Zone.

Failed Union Because of Annoying Rules

5. NFG
Not For Grabs.

Stuff Wives Always Get.

7. FM
Follow Me.

8. POS
Pretty Obnoxious Spouse.

9. CYA
Call Your Attorney.

10. G2G
Get 2gether.

What do you think?

    Sound good to me, rather witty I must say! I had a hard time with this until I read your and Sprogs list. I didn’t realize how many acronyms I do use. First and embarrassingly I work at a community college (not that i’m embarrassed to work for them but that i forgot that one!) and use their acronym all the time, not to mention jpeg, RAM, ROM, CD, and on and on! I can’t wait to read others and see all the ones I overlooked!
    Oh AND I Can’t wait for next week! Fabulous topic!

    Hah! Swag is awesome.

    I regularly use, WTF (F does not equal face in my part of the world), OMG and LOL when typing, and GTFO (Get The F Out – again, F does not equal face).

    When I worked at Nike, I was baffled for the first week because they talk in ALL ACRONYMS ALL THE TIME. It must be an American thing. :)

      I always feel like a million bucks when someone responds to me GTFO. Like I am Jay Leno, you know 😉

    I like BZ – with two boys and the husband, I certainly feel like I’m in their space often. Glad I don’t need to share a bathroom with my younger boys.

    I love your interpretation! I could only come up with a few that I use, but I wasn’t thinking about the LOL, ROFL, OMG and others. I’m sure I could have done a whole page. I WAS thinking about Hubs common use of RTFM, used to chide himself when he can’t figure out how to use something. (Read The F-ing Manual) Haha

    Confession: I often have to Google acronyms because I cannot figure them out or remember what they stand for. And when they have multiple interpretations? I am totally lost. :)

      I hear you. First time I saw LOL was in an email from hubs family and I responded Love you loads too. Then his aunt, twice my age told me what it meant. Eh… Let’s just say we are too posh for acronyms!
