Just my humble opinion now, but no one should opt out of blogging for O!
“Oh goodness gracious,” you object, “I have had no opportunity to ogle an osprey. Nor could I observe a loon or explore the ocean. I am not too keen on orthology, let alone orthography. Why am I obligated to contribute?! Stop being such an ogre!”
“You are simply obfuscating the issue with those outré excuses,” I openly opine, “and, moreover, you are being obdurate in overlooking all the O’s surrounding you!
For every obscure reference like ocarina, there is an overcoat in your closet. Are you wearing an oxford shirt? Did you enjoy oatmeal for breakfast? And just who was that oaf who stole your spot in the parking lot? Perhaps you are old enough to have seen oleo replace that other spread, butter? Or young enough to have seen the start of HBO or the Oxygen network? Certainly you know Our President!
You can look at me orey-eyed -- or out your window at the oak tree. Put your oar in the water for ABC Wednesday -- outlandish and common choices abound!
I’d be much obliged.
And overcome with joy!”
Great intrO, Helen.ReplyDelete
I got myself all confused, and thought today must be Tuesday, so I've already posted my O post.
However, there's one bit of confusion you might help me with. At the top of the page here, it says "any time Tuesday due to time differences" and then, at the bottom, in the fine print, it says 5pm October 25, but it doesn't say what time zone.
Very nice intro for O day!ReplyDelete
But Mr Linky is Out? Oh Oh Oh!
Here is my link: http://merrymildred.blogspot.com/2011/10/abc-wednesday-is-for-old-oddities.html

Great O words! And Obama is a good choice!ReplyDelete
Kay, I have the same question. Maybe Denise can help us with this one.ReplyDelete
p.s. I probably posted the intro too early......
The linky tool is embedded and will "open"in about 4 hours - 4pm GMT - Roger will explain the technical side of the proceedings, it escapes my blonde understanding! lol!ReplyDelete
