Jitter

November 30, 2010

I got to wondering what it would look like if I had a Twitter account for a day.  So here you go.  For those unfamiliar with Twitter, there are two things that will help this make sense.  1) Each Twitter entry is limited to 140 characters and 2) The most recent posts are at the top, so start reading this from the bottom.

Twitter is weird.
9:13 PM November 30th

I can see how having Twitter drastically limits productivity in a day.  Instead of making dinner, I’m tweeting about making dinner thus slowing down the dinner making process.

Dinner!!  And yes, it’s bacon.

@Alicat:  Sorry I called you Alicat.  Know what else I’m sorry about?

That last tweet was me officially annoying myself.

That last tweet was an excuse to use the phrase “in case you didn’t catch that” just one more time, in case you didn’t catch that.

That last tweet was an excuse to use the word “slathered” in case you didn’t catch that.
4:08 PM November 30th

That last tweet was slathered with sarcasm in case you didn’t catch that.

@DBarrymore:  So are you thinking a Winter or a Spring wedding?

I enjoy confusing Amazon by searching for the most random things possible many times within an hour.  It makes the suggestions for you hilarious.  “Why yes, yes I would like a hairdryer and a copy of the Septuagint.  Combine into one shipment, please.”

I created a shrinking machine!!  Unfortunately, it got so small I can’t find it…

@Roomie:  Tonight, let’s make bacon covered bacon.  With some bacon on the side.

Closing Thoughts

November 28, 2010

I leave you tonight with this question:

If you walk until your legs hurt, have you overschlepped?

Goodnight, Internet.

Orange You Glad I Blog?

November 18, 2010

You might remember this post I did a while back exploring the name (or more precisely the non-name) of the Orange.

Well check out what greeted me this morning on my daily comics page…

Pretty impressive if you can come up with a joke before B.C., amiright??

Happy Thursday Almost Friday!

It’s Like Flickr, but in 1930

November 12, 2010

One of the highlights of last week was checking out the Alfred Stieglitz’s New York photo gallery at the Southstreet Seaport Museum.  Very interesting stuff, for city dwellers or not.  It’s open through January and highly recommended if you can make it. 

Happy Friday!!
