How well do you know your acronyms?

How well versed are you on the acronyms that are so popular today in conversations via text, private message or social media?   If you have teenagers in your house, you are probably very knowledgeable about these.  If not, here is a quick lesson, LOL.  That stands for Laugh Out Loud by the way, not Lots of Love as some (of us older) people think.

  • OMG is pretty obvious, I just put it on the list to ensure everyone knows at least one.
  • WTF too, although I did see a joke on Facebook that implied many people my age do not know what it stands for. In case you are one of them, it’s What The F**k.
  • BRB stands for Be Right Back just in case you get interrupted in the middle of a conversation through text or PM (private message)  That’s like asking “Can you hold on a minute?” in the old days when you were talking on the (landline) phone and the doorbell rang, or your oven timer went off or…NVM (never mind) you get the picture.
  • MYOB means Mind Your Own Business.  Some people use an F before the B; you can probably guess what that stands for.  I guess that is added when you are really annoyed at someone.
  • LMFAO means Laughing My F***ing Ass Off. (a fancier version of LOL)  Again, you can add the F or remove it as you please or as your vocabulary dictates.  There is also ROFLMAO which is Rolling On the Floor Laughing My Ass Off.
  • AFAIKB3 means As Far As I Know Blah Blah Blah.  In other words, I don’t care, which means it could be abbreviated to IDC, which should never be confused with IDK which BTW (by the way) means I Don’t Know.

 

acronyms

 

 

Tell the truth, how many of these acronyms did you know already?  I admit I learned a few more today, and tested my eyes at the same time.  LOL.

The grass is always greener

The saying goes”the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence.”  In this case, the crop is always greener on the other side of the creek LOL…

grass is always greener

 

anyone know what the brown crop is?  It is quite healthy looking up close, just the color from a distance that makes it look dead.  Although you cannot see it in the picture I took from the car as we drove by, there is a creek running between the two crops.

Osprey in Lanark, Ontario

 

On our way to the cottage last weekend, we stopped to watch a huge (?osprey) nest that is perched on top of a light stand at the edge of a baseball field in Lanark, Ontario.  Apparently, it is very common for osprey to build their nests on manmade structures such as telephone or light poles.  As we watched one large bird and one small bird in the nest, another large (adult) bird approached to feed the baby.  This is another time I wish I had a camera with a better zoom lens to get a closer shot of the mother and baby birds.  As usual, I had to resort to the camera on my phone.

Fat Bastard Merlot and gardening gloves

Buying my favourite red wine recently at the LCBO, my husband noticed that each bottle of Fat Bastard Merlot had a free pair of gardening gloves attached to it…

 

What a great promotion, perfect for red wine and garden lovers like me!

Favourite wildflowers

It seems fitting that the wildflowers most prevalent at our cottage are favourites of my mother and mother-in-law…

 

The black-eyed susans were my mother-in-law’s favourite, and the queen anne’s lace was my mother’s.  In this picture they are blowing in the strong winds that came up with the recent storm clouds.

Unfortunately, the queen anne’s lace is being taken over by the dreaded wild parsnip along the highways on the way to our cottage…

 

I hope the construction workers along this particular stretch of hwy 7, just west of Carleton Place are aware of the dangers of wild parsnip.

Storm clouds

These storm clouds circled us on Palmerston Lake this past Friday night, but we did not receive any rain until early Monday morning…

 

In fact, after the stars and moon chased away the clouds, we were able to enjoy our first campfire of the season since the fire ban had finally been lifted in the North Frontenac area…
