I’ve been a bit of a Twitterholic of late. It’s like friendship without strings, no hurt feelings, no having to stick to plans (I am quite literally the queen of gasping and saying something sounds fun and “Oh, shouldn’t we do this? Let’s!” Only to have the scheduled time arrive and think, “Oh my god, I so do NOT want to do this.”)
Trading little morsels, not quite blogworthy, but ohmygod, my kid has been wearing her Dora helmet in the house for 3 hours! is too good not to share with someone, and so, I Twit…Tweet…Twa–sorry, got carried with Twitterreverence.
Anyway, Sean has noticed my interest in Twitter and sat down while I clicked around on my laptop.
“So, you know Twitter has really penetrated things,” he said.
“Hmmm, how so?” I asked not really looking up.
“Well, there is actually a Twitter account for the Mars Lander.” He was looking over at me.
“Is that like Zoolander?” I asked looking at him expectantly.
Wait, it gets worse.
“No,” he said looking at me a little bit frightened, “the Mars Lander, it’s a probe that–“
It was like I was a 15 year old boy. I began convulsing.
“What? He asked. “What? Is it…”
“You said probe.”
He’s a freaking saint, I’m an idiot savant:
“Is Josh Groban the new Yanni?” he asks.
I respond, “I have no idea, all I know about Yanni is that he was married to Linda Evans…you know of Dynasty and Big Valley fame.”
My name is PunditMom. It's been 10 minutes since my last twitter. 😉
dude Yanni is skeevy Josh Groban isn't.
Why am I arguing this?
LOL. You said probe…heh
Josh Groban – the new Yanni? Very interesting observation!!
i just joined twitter! FINALLY!
I have a Twitter account that is just barely active. I really do not get the allure.
I have been enjoying your tweets! I rarely reply on twitter, it is usually a fly by thing but still very entertaining. Hope you get the other leg shaved!
My name is MariaWJ, and I am a twitoholic. It's been 5 minutes since my last tweet.
The power of the Twit is strong. I got pulled in by it last week. I held off on the suggestion to join as long as I could, but it will have you. No resistance!
Yikes. I just Twittered. Is there a 12 Step Program for us?
I do the "heheheheehhe you said" to Mr. Hot all the time. Of course, we're Beavis and Butthead fans from way back.
That's pretty funny.
…and the helmet, really, 3 whole hours?
I can't tell you how many times I've typed a tweet (say that ten times fast) only to have that horrible minus sign tell me that my tweet's too long (that's what she said).
You are smrat.
(I spelled that wrong on purpose.)
I have a twitter account. It's just another vehicle to fuel my insecurity.
I can keep up with "posting" once in a while at Twitter. Writing a whole real blog post seems beyond me lately.
Have you seen the videos about Twitter that Lisa Nova has done? I just about wet my pants.
