It's almost shameful to post this unique badge on my page. I say so because it was easy for me to make 26 alphabetical posts during April. I kept it simple not wanting to stress about it. Even if my original intention was to write more, it turned out that I merely made a presence on the blog each day. If nothing else, I consider it a success just because it's possible the downward slide in number of annual posts might creep back up the other direction. We shall see. Thanks A to Z for making it easy to stick with the challenge and thanks to all who happened on this blog.
My alphabet words are too mundane. Not enough character. With only two days left I figured I should take the opportunity to learn something new. So here it is. YOTTABYTE according to Wikipedia:
1 YB = 1000000000000000000000000bytes = 10008bytes = 1024bytes = 1000zettabytes.
Witt Bits is a mere drop in the big scheme of bytes or bits or whatever you want to call them. Nibble on that one for a while.
Now what about XMAS? It didn't used to bother me but as I get older I find myself almost feeling guilty using the shortened version. I profess to being far from the perfect Christian as I struggle with a weekly dose of Sunday faith but somehow it just doesn't seem right to write XMAS anymore.
Enough said. Got to get a letter off to my son, Xopher.
Years ago at the beginning of this blog, I chose the Dorothy Parker quote as part of my header, partially because I am a huge fan. Thinking perhaps it might be time for an update I searched for some more WIT quotes. There were more than 100 quotes about WIT on BrainyQuotes and Dorothy Parker was not in the mix. Looking back at the length of most of my posts, perhaps this one better describes my blog:
We had another CATastrophe at our house last night while I was out line dancing. Came home to find my TV face down on the bedroom floor. Which one looks the guiltiest? And how long do you think I'll stay mad? Long enough to save up for the 2nd TV I must purchase within one year. The last one plummeted to the floor when the closet door hinge broke off. Guess I should have bought that insurance.
Maybe there's a message in this. Time to get UNPLUGGED?
