# What is an acronym specific to your workplace or profession?

there are literally hundreds.  Let’s just try this one:  Code Differentiated Multiple Access versus Time Differentiated Multiple Access.
# What is an acronym you use a lot in your personal life?

Here are a couple…  COB, for close of business.  It came from work, but I have also found value in it.  I’ll tell you a phrase that I totally use which makes me a corporate douche bag, but it communicates a lot and does not have to be cliche > win win     Yup, I’m totally that guy.

# Internet acronyms are unavoidable, but what’s one you particularly despise, and what’s one you particularly like?

here is a question I have about that.  You know the term ‘FAQ’?  It stands for ‘frequently asked questions’.  Here is the thing, I don’t like to say ‘ef ay queue’.  Takes too long.  So, I say it phonetically.  I say ‘fack’.  Did you read the fack?  That is how it sounds when I say it.  My question is… do you?  Or, is that just me?

# What acronym could you create right now for some regular annoyance in your life?

# What would be a memorable or appetizing acronym for your most recent meal? (if your most recent meal was a BLT or SOS or some similarly acronymed food, please choose the next-most recent meal, smart alecks!)

I just made a ham and cheese sammich so profoundly good, it would have made Jerry (you know, crazy jerry the sammich guy) proud.  I don’t have a acronym for it, but I had joked to the wife I should get a ‘I ate the whole thing’ shirt for finishing mine.  Almost a pound of mustard honey glazed ham pan fried with a dash of butter, set on a bed of fresh cut provolone, then smooshed together under two two inch slices of fresh bakery sourdough… jammed into a buttered Foreman grill.  This acted as a panini press.  I should have taken a picture of it for you, it was that good.

  1. 1. What is an acronym specific to your workplace or profession? (students who don’t work: What is an acronym specific to your campus or major?)

    I am in the corporate maze – they love acronyms for everything. I guess the most used is CSM, for the web based application Customer Service Management. Boooooring.

    2. What is an acronym you use a lot in your personal life?

    OK ? Ok, that is lame. Fubar? Snafu? All appropriate.

    3. Internet acronyms are unavoidable, but what’s one you particularly despise, and what’s one you particularly like?

    I am fond of ROTFLMAO. I hate LOL. The first is creative and has some style. The second is so stale that is used by everyone.

    4. What acronym could you create right now for some regular annoyance in your life?

    CBANE (Catbox Always Needs Emptied.)

    5. What would be a memorable or appetizing acronym for your most recent meal? (if your most recent meal was a BLT or SOS or some similarly acronymed food, please choose the next-most recent meal, smart alecks!)

    SICC (Spicy Indian Chicken Curry) (homemade, labor intensive and an amazing dish, if I do say so myself.)
