Heard Through The Grapevine

at

This afternoon.

Singer and model Nick Kamen.

Denim-washing dreamboat who, in one 30-second, boxer short-clad commercial, helped revive sales of Levis 501 jeans while killing off the y-front for a generation.

RIP.

Any excuse.

    ACO, ITMB to keep up with the acronym explosion of recent years, but I had to Google BITD to see WTF that was about.
    Are we approaching a situation where communication will be almost entirely by acronyms:

    Only last night herself says to me, it’s Tuesday, DYPOTB.
    I said IWGLTC all day, will you GIAR and DBAM, and anyway WDYDI.
    She said IWIMH to which I replied, ACO, YJTTP.
    I thought FI, IDIM.

    And these says I can’t even call yer man and say AYGFAP?

            Very Good Janet. (VGJ).

            Some acronyms and portmanteau words serve a useful purpose: ‘Brexit’ is much more convenient than describing that process with a phrase. But the point I’m trying to make (TPITTM…I’ll stop now), is that many acronyms are quite subjective. They don’t grow on trees, someone has to make them up, but they aren’t always obvious to others – and are often used as a badge or reflection of how clued in the user is to the topic – or just being cool generally!
            So I reserve the right to create my own TYVM…damn.
