I have been on twitter for a little over a year now. It has mostly been a good experience and I have made many friends. Here are a few thoughts:
1. If you don’t like me, unfollow. Totally cool.
2. If you don’t like someone else, I don’t want to know about it.
3. Gossip is still just that, gossip.
4. The tearing down of others makes you look pathetic, don’t do it.
5. There are human beings behind every avi, try to remember that.
The advent of social media has allowed us to connect with people we never would have had a chance to enjoy or get to know. When it turns into a child’s sandbox fighting over a real or imagined slight it makes everyone uncomfortable.
So, grow up, have fun, and play nice.
It is a dark day for the friends and family of Beth Allyson and everyone she touched with her talent, wit and heart. She had been talking about suicide for a while and yesterday took her own life.
I had some interaction with Beth online. Not a lot, but enough to know that she was a very smart,…
Most retarded cat ever.
A man is sexy when:
He looks you in the eyes when talking.
He will agree to disagree.
He smells nice, naturally.
He is smart and can make you laugh at nothing.
But mostly when his hand touches yours it, you feel it up to your elbow.
I have spent months on a pet project. For a friend. Now that I am down to the short hairs, he bailed due to Twitter gossip. Who believes that stuff? Well, he does. So now I am down to scrambling for his replacement. I never asked for this. In fact, I have no idea about the business I am about to get into. Thanks to my friends Shauna and Adrienne, we will make a go of this.
Watch us shine. Stay tuned.
Spent a shit ton of money to send my daughter to a high end University. So far, she has been there two weeks.
That being said, the University has “organized parties” every night. She has been to exactly 4 classes. Tonight was a “foam” party where they filled an entire parking lot with soap suds. Sounds really fun. I sometimes wonder about the high end schools, is it a free ride? Do you buy a degree? Am I doing the right thing?
I want her to learn, be happy and healthy, grow her mind so she can think for herself.
Don’t get me wrong, I am happy that she is happy, but when does the party end and the learning begin?
My daughter phoned me at 6 am. She had just moved into the dorm. She was very happy. Sometimes her laugh makes me cry, because it is exactly mine.
Day 2 with her gone, I did go through her room, snuggled with a few of her clothes, and silently kissed her goodbye.
My daughter Megan left for college yesterday, 3000 miles away.
I have yet to go into her room, because I can smell her and I start to cry. She has shared 18 years with me, we have laughed, cried, and yelled through all of them. Many times we would lay nose to nose on my bed just talking about the challenges of being a teenager. Many times we would whisper secrets and giggle.
Her laugh is intoxicating to me, her smile like a drug, her kiss and “I love you momma” is the core of my happiness.
But, now it is time to let go. For all of you parents out there, this post is for you. It is harder than you think.
There have been a lot of posts about the “unfairness” of FavStar. Many very interesting, I like to see other’s opinions. But in the end, who cares? I post bullshit most of the time, and if I am honest I star a few people because I like them, I confess to looking for a few avis because my faves are always awesome. It is human nature.
That being said, Tweet for FUN not FOLLOWERS. This is not a game show where there is a prize at the end. We ALL have the right to star and RT whatever we want.
Not following back is not a slight, I am always looking for new funny people. I take the recommendations of friends. Yes, I will look at your timeline, if I don’t find you funny, that does not mean others won’t. I get unfollowed ALL the time.
Pax is a huge, LOYAL supporter of Favstar, and I respect her for that. I have, MANY times, confided my frustrations about the gaming with her. She is in no way to blame for any of my misgivings. They are lucky to have such a faithful advocate.
She is entitled to her opinion, which is below;
For once I don’t even want to defend favstar. I’m tired of it. Tired of the competition. Tired of the way it makes people feel inadequate. And it makes ME feel inadequate daily. Like nothing I tweet is ever good enough. I’m competing with people who are professionals with ten times as many…
