    I'd like to incorporate a fun name for each day of the week, such as Magnificent Monday, etc., but am stuck on Thursday! Thrifty Thursday? no. Thankful Thursday isn't great either. Any ideas? It could have the "TH" in the middle of the word, if it comes to that.

    Also, our mascot is the Gator, and I'd like a nifty, inspirational acronym for that. I've come up with many goofy (and some inappropriate) possibilities, and tried to find a site online where you type in your word & it gives ideas, but couldn't find any sites that do that.

    Thumbs Up Thursday is great!

    So is Thrilling Thursday!


    (Did you come up with that list on your own, or did you find a list of adjectives online? I'm looking for an alphabetical list of adjectives, but I'm coming up short.)
