Little things pleasing little minds

Bloggie friends!

Here is one acronym that speaks to my inner juvenile immature heart and makes me giggle every time I see it proudly displayed in the shops:

BOGOF

Or Buy One Get One Free.

Ahem.

Charlie says: I am not amused.


Ok, back to my haiku-ing. Would you Adam and Eve it but my ones need editing?

They’re like less than 17 syllables each! Good grief!! I’m losing heart bloggie friends!

Nearly Friday!

Ooh...Charlie does look very serious! You are too funny...:)

Jemi Fraser said...

Charlie definitely does NOT look impressed! Yikes :)

The Words Crafter said...

BOGOF...some of my favorite letter assemblies of all time!

Guinevere said...

Haiku are hard! Props to you for trying and for pulling them off.... I've been working on some and they kick my bum.

Here in the U.S., the acronym is always just BOGO. I like your version better. More fun to have a little hidden message... lol.

uh-hoo....my human also will go crazy for the BOGOF things

buggrit! Isn't that what one of Terry Pratchet's characters say?

millenium shrimp!

Summer Ross said...

Don't lose heart- keep pushing through!

Susan Kane said...

Just wanted to check in on you, and see what you are doing. I'm going to look in on Dominic's haiku next. I love your site. So many cats, so little time.

Mary Ann said...

They use BOGO on TV here. I guess BOGOF sounds too rude:)

Clarissa Draper said...

Well, hope your haikuing goes a bit better! In America they call it BOGO.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

BOGOF sounds like a curse - Bog Off, mate!

Roland D. Yeomans said...

It looks like Charlie and Gypsy are cut from the same aloof cloth!

May your end of week go well, Roland

Al said...

The inner juvenile is an oft needed friend.

Madeleine said...

LOL! I love it.
Yes Haiku just need 3 lines of 5,7,5 syllables, otherwise the one you've done seems great :O)

Reenie said...

Here, the metcards (public transport cards) have a accr. BATBYGOBSTOPL: Buying A Ticket Before You Get On Board Saves Time Or Problems Later.

I find it highly amusing :)

Ellie said...

Hello Star Blogger!

Yes. BOGOF always makes chuckle as well.

Ellen Brickley said...

I especially like it when people pronounce that as 'Bog Off' :) Glad I'm not alone!

Her highness, Samantha Vérant said...

Laughing with Charlie...

: )

Susan Fields said...

What a beautiful fluffy tail you have, Charlie!

And Old Kitty, every time I come to your blog and see "Bloggie friends!" it makes me smile! Your blog is always so much fun!

Kea said...

I'd have had to think about the "BOGOF" acronym. Makes me think of "bug off," of course.

Good luck with the haiku!

LTM said...

Charlie's very sassy. I do always read that "bug off" too. :D

I can't write haikus worth a flip. ;p

The Monkeys said...

BOGOF is my favorite thing too! It's amazing how much of a victim I am to marketing!

KarenMcG said...

Hang in there, "Old Kitty". You're probably doing much better than you're giving yourself credit for.

And Charlie really does like what you're doing.

Thanks for helping make Bowie's birthday extra special.

Hannah and Lucy said...

Jenn - mum thought it was just her with the BOGOF(F) that always makes her laugh - she's delighted she is no longer "alone"!!
We are enjoying this wonderful weather and hope it isn't our "summer"!!
We are sending whiskery smooches to Charlie.
luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Ginger Jasper said...

Yes we like the BOGOF offers too and grab a bargain while its on. ont lose heart as I am sure you will get there. Hugs GJ x

Lydia K said...

I love that black spot on his back. Very charming.

I'll have to remember BOGOF!

Brian said...

Hey, if it's treats or nip, Charlie and I are with you on the BOGOF!!!

Brian said...

Hey, if it is treats or nip, Charlie and I are with you on the BOGOF! (sorry if this is a dup, it looked like blogger ate my comment).

Ann said...

I do wonder if people even pay attention to what they display. I mean BOGOF is not very inviting is it? Have a great sun shiny day!

Bossy Betty said...

I fall for the Buy One Get One Free every time!

I hate losing Bloggie friends too...

You'll never lose me!!

Sammy, Andy and Shelly said...

Our mama loves BOGOFs!!!!!!!!

And ALL of us love Charlie and Old Kitty!!!!!!!!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

"BOGOF" LOL. That is too funny.

Hang in there, oh great master of the Haiku. :-)

Rene said...

I thought it was just BOGO. Either way, it's still funny!

fairyhedgehog said...

Charlie is beautiful when he's not amused!

soggibottom said...

Think it's a case of BOGOF ..
You know the saying, try and try and try again :-)
Hey Charlie fantastic looking catty flap there :-)xxx
luv AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM X

Margo Berendsen said...

I always stare in shock at BOGOF signs too. My first reaction is the sign is telling me to Bugg Off!

laughingwolf said...

cute, but annoying... to me :P lol

Repositório said...

Charlie! Tomorrow is Friday!
Kisses and hugs!

The Golden Eagle said...

LOL. It's a funny acronym. :D

Don't lose heart! You can do it. You can nail those haikus.

ABBY said...

Oh Charlie
Our Mom likes those initials too!

purrin
xoxox

klahanie said...

Ah yes 'BOGOF' as that annoying dude mentions in that really aggravating double-glazing advert. Does he not realise that double glazed windows take twice as long to wash....
Ahem, Penny says, 'hello Charlie...speak to me, Charlie...'

Cat Chat With Caren And Cody said...

Charlie is NOT laughing! lol

Theresa Milstein said...

We call it BOGO here.

Don't lose heart. Haikus are not as easy as they seem.

Joanna St. James said...

I love that word, but u see they only do buy one get one half off in the US very unnerving

William Kendall said...

Charlie's giving the cold shoulder.
