Home Yurts in Progress (Pretty Exciting, Eh?) What's a Yurt?

The YIPPEE Acronym Challenge was set forth in August 2004 (in Volume Six), as follows:

As everyone knows, YIPPEE stands for "Yurts In Progress, Pretty Exciting Eh!?"

Looking to the future, C&C wonder what the new meaning will be. The yurts will eventually be so much more than 'in progress'! Certainly, life at the C&C land will be 'pretty exciting eh! and 'yippee' will not be the only joyful refrain that escapes their lips.

Once they are ensconced in their wonderful yurt haven, C&C will be keeping the YIPPEE acronym, but with a new set of words for the meaning. This challenge is more an open invite than a contest. There is no solid deadline. C&C will consider any suggestion. Maybe they'll give away a mug or something else to people whose suggestions are used. Maybe they won't. Kinda depends on how big a pot 'o money they end up with!
