Maybe it's just because I really, really dislike the ASAE Xtreme theme, but a press release I just got screamed "theme overdose" to me:
- Playing upon the theme of this yearâ€™s meeting, â€Association Performance to the Xtreme,â€ the categories of items up for bid [in the association's online auction]- â€Xcellent Xposure,â€ â€Xcetera,â€ â€Xciting Getaways,â€ â€Xhilarating Speakers,â€ â€Xpanding Connections,â€ â€Xtraordinary Items,â€ â€Xtravagant Xcursionsâ€ and â€Xtreme Meetingsâ€ - live up to their titles.
Ack, ick, and yuck. I used to be a big fan of carrying a theme through every aspect of a meeting, but this is making me reconsider. And a little nauseous, too. Xcetera? That's just Xcrutiating.
(They do have some great stuff up for auction, though, if you're not as X-averse as I am.)
