Good idea Paul. You might want to consider aRect; that's my favorite and its 1 or
2 strokes shorter.

Some other short favorites of mine are aStr$, aChr$ and aSqr%. We don't really
stress the importance of "meaningful" variable names. I hate to try to understand
code (even sample code) that is foo this and myFoo that.
