Anna at Life Just Keeps Getting Weirder did a post on blog talk back in December. It's about blog specific acronyms in which she expanded on the (yawning here) LOL and ROFL with a few others like SICS and ISSBFMFTC. My all time favorite though is JHTMF - Just here to mooch followers. Her acronyms are so funny (I'll add a few of my own acronyms here) ICSLSTMM (I can't spell laughing sounds that match mine)
Me? A Mooch?
So, mooching. You talkin' to me? You talking to ME? Actually I never thought about bouncing around in blogland from one blog to another to where you can't even find your way home again as mooching. And it's not. Even though I leave intriguing comments. And maybe offer freebies if you will FMBPP (follow my blog pretty please). The thing is, I happen to think the word mooch is funny, so it's more amusing to "mooch" bloggers than to "visit". Maybe I'll change my name to Mooch Swings..
(If you do get lost out there on an MM (mooch mission), leave a comment ISFOICGBTMB (I'm so far out I can't get back to my blog) and maybe someone will help you find your way home. My personal security force, Janeen and Sparky will snag you by the collar and whisk you back home)
I'm On a MM. What's It To Ya?
Mooch, BTW, is from the Old French muchier which means to loiter about, skulk, sneak, obtain without paying, steal.
Now I ask you, if you were out skulking and saw a comment by Running With Scissors on Gufabardo's comments wouldn't you bounce over there? I would. That person is probably a roll model, don't you think? Or Snarky Much? - yep I am, I'm stoppin' by right now. How about Midlife, Menopause, Mistakes and Random Stuff? Yep, that's me! Lemme check it out! Or Circling My Head? There's stuff circling my head all the time so here I come to see what you're all about. How do you think I found Anna in the first place? Life does keep getting weirder. She's a IMHF! (I mooched her first!) in case you get into an argument about just who visited who first.You skulking scoundrels dare accuse her of mooching?? Her?? The Moo...er.. Muse???
So next time you're skulking out there in bloggyland, and you see me loitering about, you'll know I'm JHTMF - hope you are too!
