O for Oh no





It wasn't yet an Obsession, but I had decided to take part in the ABC Wednesday and the next letter, the first one for me, was O.


I went through my Old pictures, looking for something beginning with O. Oh no! I found neither pictures of the Obelisk brought to Paris by Champollion, nor any Other Object. Was it a bad Omen? Obviously!


I had already eaten all my Onions, and the Olives, too, and there are no Orange trees in the neighbourhood.


I had to find an Outsider. Being a bit Overweight I thought about taking a picture of myself, but that wouldn't do.


Had I Overestimated my abilities? Must I put the head in the Oven (I use gas in the kitchen).


No, I must find something quite Ordinary, or there will be Objections by the Blog Observers.


My Obstinacy was Obstructing me from seing the thruth. I was Out!


Have I Omitted something? Oh yes! The picture is from the Old Orcher Castle in the Outskirts of Le Havre.

... and now a comment from OOOOlson: Yes, very nice text! You must have been desperate, but you found a solution! Good luck with the q,z,y... ! I suppose that the ä,ö etc. are not included. There you would have an unfair advantage on participants of other nationalities!

I can´t resist commenting although my initial does not come next..opqrstu..etc

You really made my day by means of this posting. :)

hpy a dit…

Thank you Liisa for two things, for your kind comment, and for breaking the chain opqr... as nobody wanted to comment after O and P.

Cergie a dit…

Tu as fait un message avec des oranges. Et tu as tagué Marguerite à l'époque.

hpy a dit…

Oui, et la prochaine fois je taguerai Cergie. C'est prévu! Sans oranges.

Cergie a dit…

Il eut été moins zaisé de faire comme Pérec qui écrivit une oeuvre sans "E", "la disparition"
Mais Pérec c'était son job.
Et toi tu nous faire rire c'est ça ton job.

Cergie a dit…

Cergie, Marguerite et Lucie, aucun "O"...

Cergie a dit…

Et P'tit Loup ?

Cergie a dit…

Il est où P'tit Loup ?

Great first posting for abc wednesday!I am glad you didnt Opt for putting your head in the Oven.
That would have Obviously been an Obnoxious thing to do.

hpy a dit…

Thank you, deb and jean m fogle. It was a real pleasure (keep P as pleasure for next week) to participate - at least this time.

RUTH a dit…

LOL what a clever post. Welcome to ABC Wednesday :o)

O so that's great - and I've just shifted my link to you from Oddblogs to ABC!

mrsnesbitt a dit…

Heyyyyy! I will add you to the blogroll.

hpy a dit…

Don't do it tOO fast. I might not be able to continue. The O was easy once I got it started but let's see what I'll do with P before crying victory. (Or the tears will come...)

Mick a dit…

Hmmm, wasn't the bicycle once named the "omniped" when first invented? I could be wrong about that. :)

Elegia a dit…

Oh no!

lyliane a dit…

Connais tu la chanson que l'on chante en remplaçant toutes les voyelles par les a e i o u ?
essaye : buvons un coup ma serpette est perdue mais le manche, mais le manche, buvons un coup ma serpette est perdue mais le manche est revenu.
Donc avec le o cela donne:
bovosoco mo sorpoto o pordo mo le mocho mo le mocho, bovosoco mo sorpoto o pordo, mo lo mocho o rovono.

Heya,
I love older looking buildings like this.
They have so much more character than todays modern buildings... so much more history and ... (stops.. due to the irony of his comment).

Well.. I love it.. welcome to ABC Wednesday.
