Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-06-19

  • RT @AnitaKingWrites: Aaand finished Space Casey by @christianaellis. Very funny, very enjoyable. — Yay! Thank you for listening! #
  • .@Mainframe Well, wrapped up with a bow and arrow seems more likely. 😉 #
  • Must not give in To grumpy mood! I will summon my cheer through sheer force of will! GRRRGGGAAARGH!!! *smiles* Ah, that's better. #
  • .@nlowell I'll admit it, the My Little Pony avatar helps. #
  • .@odin1eye @nlowell O_o #
  • .@Nobilis That's good to know. I know I enjoyed the extra scenes. I was a little surprised to hear that anyone didn't! #
  • .@AnitaKingWrites As it turns out, friendship really IS magic! #
  • .@edgizmo Could happen! The denizens of Equestria, after all, are not immune to grumpy moods. It is just that they are comparatively mild. #
  • .@edgizmo Their sunny dispositions help to soften the lows & enhance the highs. Add a pinch of 'Biology is Destiny' and there you are! #
  • .@Nobilis I agree that that is the dynamic, but one could ask why he's so sure they would never talk. Esp w/Roz since she's new. #
  • .@edgizmo Only if they drink hot sauce. I'm at work or I'd find you the picture. 🙂 #
  • .@Nobilis Agreed, and also, he doesn't really give them any names. He doesn't join, because explaining how smart he is, is how he gets off. #
  • .@edgizmo Honestly, I never really liked the Smurfs much either. But my love of the new My Little Pony show is the real deal. #
  • .@edgizmo Don't judge by the 80's cartoon, The new one is the good one. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/My_Little_Pony_Friendship_is_Magic #
  • .@HillaryDePiano @edgizmo True. The 80's movie was one of the first I saw in the theater. But the new one transcends its marketing origins. #
  • .@madpoet You are now, like, 20% cooler. (In-joke, keep watching.) #
  • .@madpoet @WickedGood All of the current My Little Pony (I think) is on YouTube. They don't take it down because they make $ from toys. #
  • .@vforvoice My avatar was made for me by @planetx for a panel at Balticon. Let me see if I can find the link. #
  • .@vforvoice MLP generator: http://bit.ly/jutRMd Here's one of @planetx (http://flic.kr/p/9PicNe) & @Cmaaarrr (http://flic.kr/p/9Pm3wY) #
  • .@Mainframe First ep is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JeJ6-gN0eB4&feature=youtube_gdata_playerRest should be easy to find from there. #
  • @Mainframe You can also just google My little pony: friendship as magic to find many resources such as episode guides, etc. #
  • .@dsobkowiak Come on! Everypony's doing it! #
  • .@jrblackwell All the best stuff is over the top. Like the cookie jar on top of the fridge, or pole-vaulting. #
  • RT @sonicsociety: The new Headquarters of the Sonic Society! http://fb.me/AYBAkzlN – Looks great! #
  • .@spiritualtramp IS everything okay? Because I know a lot of people who would be very relieved. 😉 #
  • .@spiritualtramp Ah, well. He'd know, I guess. #
  • I go to bed early and wake up feeling MORE tired than usual. The mysteries of the human body are rich, beautiful and sometimes annoying. #
  • I feel strangely… competent this morning. Be afraid. #
  • .@madpoet I know, right? #
  • Ate bananas last week & had no problems with my back. This week, none & some. Coincidence? Quite possibly. Still eating a banana for lunch. #
  • .@HillaryDePiano Now that you mention it, it HAS been a while since the last tiger attack. #
  • .@jramboz I would like to Pre-order a ticket to Prophylactic Banana's first concert, please. #
  • .@daniinnc Anecdotal evidence FTW! #
  • .@Roue0824 You know, I actually typed "strangle-ly" before going back to correct it… Creepy! #
  • @Cthukie Have your interview today yet? Glad yesterday's went well. #
  • This was just delivered to my house: http://www.thinkgeek.com/electronics/retro-gaming/e762/ … I should not be allowed near money. #
  • @Cthukie Be strong! Be strong! We're all here for you! You can do it! (This applies to both the job search and the grocery shopping) #
  • @Mainframe A video's not a bad idea, though obviously I can't shoot it with the iPad camera! #
  • @edgizmo I Pre-ordered a couple of weeks ago when I saw it on Kotaku. #
  • @WintyrBourne Not yet. Got delivery confirmation, but I'm still at work. :p #
  • @edgizmo Alas, no Pac-man on it (yet), though it does have asteroids. I think first though will be Centipede! 🙂 #
  • @hatchingphoenix Yes! Though, of stuff from the 3DS store, I've actually been playing more of Link's Awakening and Cave Story. #
  • @WintyrBourne I am an engineering consultant for pharmaceutical companies. #
  • @hatchingphoenix Not in 3D, but it is the Game Boy Color version and a great game regardless. #
  • @edgizmo Well, the Centipede I learned on actually had a joystick, but true, it was a bit of a bastard child. #
  • @WintyrBourne Nothing wrong with that. 🙂 Stuff needs to get places, right? #
  • @edgizmo Did trackballs Pre-date joysticks? I assumed they were contemporaries, or even that the joysticks came first? #
  • @choochus I use Tweetdeck for iPad, though it does crash a lot. Still I like the interface. Also good: TWC Max+ (weather), Comixology, NASA #
  • @choochus And of course, Kindle, Netflix, IMDB, Discovery. Also, Office2 HD is pricey but powerful. #
  • @WintyrBourne Working on it! I've got scenes done and bits planned and everything! #
  • @edgizmo @spiritualtramp Two men enter… (the arcade)… No quarters leave! #
  • @sinspired @DDog I liked it too. Groovy, man. #XMenFirstClass #
  • @pcharing Good music, loud. Rock. #
  • I haven't thought about postage stamps in over 2 years. As only things that I am aware of exist, I am sorry if that made them hard to find. #
  • @annacreech I've got a lot of other stuff on my mind already, (the universe, Earth, Pez, etc.) but I'll add your request to the list. 🙂 #
  • @chrisbachmann Cork-boards! I hadn't thought of them in a while either! 0o0 #
  • @TeeMonster @nlowell Yeah, I just recently listened through #ownersshare myself. Painful, but well-handled. #
  • Only just this morning figured this out. Lucy-Sky-Diamonds -> LSD. #slowontheuptake #
  • @odin1eye My condolences. It is good that he will be remembered. #
  • @TeeMonster Oh no! I almost missed it myself, wish I could have reminded you. :/ #
  • .@Froosh Wow, Snopes agrees, it was a coincidence! http://www.snopes.com/music/hidden/lucysky.asp But still, a hell of a coincidence! #
  • This just in! Turns out that Puff the Magic Dragon is actually about a magic dragon!!! #
  • .@trreed My avatar was made for me by @planetx using this My Little Pony generator: http://bit.ly/jutRMd #
  • @suzannehartwick You're welcome! It is my life's mission to bestow ear-worms on the whole universe… Kinda like Kahn. #
  • Overheard at lunch: "I'm going to buy a bar of chocolate and smuggle it back to my desk in my pants. … Pocket, I mean pants pocket." #
  • @Cthukie Excelsior! #
  • Time for a MEETING! #
  • Hey, we just had this great idea for a last-minute change that requires several extra hours of work FOR YOU. … By tomorrow, please. #
  • "There's a bucket where you weren't expecting there to be a bucket." #HorrorMoviesForDogs #
  • Slowly, but surely, I am puzzling out the events of Space Casey season 2. The logistics of comedy time-travel are surprisingly squirrelly. #
  • @VividMuse If you're still upset, probably best not to send it. I've learned that lesson the hard way. #
  • Oh hey, you know all that extra work we asked you to do at the last minute? The people who were supposed to help you weren't told about it. #
  • Ah, but for almost every frustration at work, there are the good people who step up and pitch in. 🙂 #
  • So all these high-profile hackers cropping up lately… They're basically supervillains, right? #
  • Do a lot of damage? Act with dramatic flair? Secret Identities? Bizarre rationalizations for their actions? Check. #HackersAreSupervillains #
  • .@comedy4cast Whenever I did it, it was always a sincere attempt to express my affection and loyalty. #
  • .@jchutchins Red-rum… If that's what you've got, but I prefer silver rum mixed with Diet Coke. #
  • Work done! Going home to see my puppy! #
  • Hanging out at the NC Maker Faire, selling books at the Pendragon Variety table. #
  • @trreed But everypony's doing it! #
  • Mike and I are recording Watching 100 Movies for "Modern Times" and "All the President's Men" Have comments? Let me know, we'll read them! #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-06-12

  • I think x-men first class is the best of all the x-men movies so far. Really enjoyed it. #
  • @pcharing I didn't think X3 was that bad, certainly not as bad as it sometimes gets slammed for, but that one was definitely Coach Class. #
  • @pcharing Agreed 100%. Very glad it wasn't spoiled for me. #
  • @mightymur I passed on your message yesterday and she said: "Yeah, yeah, sometime this week." I told her: "It takes less than 30 seconds." #
  • Wonderful praising email from person I know, love and respect > One-sentence insulting review from total stranger. #
  • @Mainframe True, Twitter is almost always positive, but nothing pleases everybody, as shown by the occasional bad reviews on iTunes, etc. #
  • It's important (but hard) to have a thick skin when putting your stuff out there, but the bad stuff makes me love my fans all the more! 🙂 #
  • Of all minor injuries that are annoying out of proportion to their severity, cuts on the knuckle of your index finger rank pretty high. #
  • @Shadow_L Agreed! Also very annoying. #
  • I'm working! Really! Working on important job stuff! I am NOT looking up E3 and WWDC news! At all! In fact, what are those things? WOOORRK! #
  • @planetx Just make sure you keep it away from submarines! #
  • Woo! Amazon just shipped my inFamous 2 Hero Edition! Loved the first game, psyched for the second! #
  • Waiting for the Sony E3 Press Conference to start, so I can watch for a while before it's time to record @BTWPodcast #
  • Caffeine shortage ahead. Expect delays. #
  • BoingBoing's Gweek podcast is fun, actually reminds me of Geek Out with @Mainframe but I think I actually like GOWM better. #
  • @PhilippaJane Cupcakes are the Omega! #
  • When do I get my best, most exciting ideas? ALWAYS when I am trying hardest to finish some OTHER project! Grr! My own brain is against me! #
  • @Gutshot It's interesting how Corgi mixes frequently keep the corgi proportions but take coloring, head shape, etc. from the other breed. #
  • @comedy4cast Some say spammers should end in fire, others carbonite. What I know of desire, I favor fire. But Carbonite would be all right. #
  • @Gutshot I prefer Corgi Classic myself, but there is no questioning the awesomeness of the Si-Corgs. #
  • @comedy4cast Exactly. #
  • Just realized I haven't had a good sloppy-Joe in AGES… Wait, why does that sound dirty? #
  • @mwsmedia I'd been following you since a long time ago. Stupid random Twitter unfollows. :p #
  • Going to play inFamous 2 a little before heading out to board game night. Life is tough. #
  • Up too late last night, think I may be coming down with something. *makes Frankenstein's Monster noises* #
  • "I'm not just the president of the LEGO Hair Club for Sith, I'm also a member!" http://yfrog.com/h7sjnjyqj #
  • @hatchingphoenix "Do you find your lack of hair… Disturbing?" #HairClubForSith #
  • I just had a bizarre craving for chicken nuggets; brief, but very intense. Like the ghost of a chicken nugget just floated through my brain. #
  • .@cdcasey Clearly the most logical explanation. And even after Princess Laya told them the location of the Rebel Coop! #
  • .@choochus Nice. #
  • Drinking rum and catching up on the Daily Show, and very soon, more inFamous 2! Love that game! It is awesome. #
  • Sitting down to see Super 8 at the IMAX. #
  • My friend Lee finally signed up for Twitter as @cthukie She is awesome, you should all follow her! #
  • RT @mightymur: Our Book Launch Party for Mur Lafferty's Afterlife Series starts in less than an hour! http://fb.me/SuzlGp1H – on my way! #
  • @Mainframe I have not seen that, but it does sound interesting. #

  • @vandermore @cmaaarrr @planetx Now that just looks like a plain old good idea. I'm always worried that my giant beetle will fall off. #
  • Really glad I decided to take today off of work as well. #Balticon was glorious, but exhausting. 🙂 #
  • @Mainframe Everything went great. Though I'll confess I get stressed out during party planning! 🙂 #

  • At game night with @mightymur We have discussed the Seinfeldification of our group and apparently I am Kramer. #
  • @ursulaV and @mightymur have only two options: Be Mormon, male and dead, or get some ray guns and do it the old-fashioned way. #
  • @hildebrandj @mightymur Oh, with, I'd think. #
  • Philosophical question: Do you spend more time praising the things you like or criticizing the things you don't? #
  • Dear Weather; How are you? I am fine. Please stop being so hot. I will be your best friend. Love, Christiana. #
  • @mightymur That's not true! I am with the weather every day! Through thick and thin. Friends should be able to ask each other for things. #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-05-29

  • Recorded and edited a reading for Escape Pod, and recorded an ep of Watching 100 Movies for "The Apartment" and "The Wild Bunch" Busy day. #
  • Trying to get on HBOGo to watch ep 7 of Game of Thrones, but having trouble connecting. Guess a lot of people with the same idea, eh{? #
  • Sweet! Got through! Game of Thrones ep 7 on @hbogo Still buffeting a bit though. #
  • Was able to watch 10 min of the new ep before the stream cut out on me. @HBOGO having troubles, looks like. Great service generally, but 🙁 #
  • Alright. Giving up on @HBOGo for tonight. I'll be back tomorrow. But I'm disappointed. They didn't have to promise episode 7, but they did. #
  • A little frustrated at the day-job today. Made a mistake which I own up to, but I feel the criticism I've received is out of proportion. #
  • Last minute call for assistance! If you are available and would like to help with the Balticon New media Time Traveler's Ball, let me know! #
  • @etherius @Nobilis @PhilippaJane @greydancer @Podiobooks Agreed. That was a lot of fun. #
  • @dsawyer @Nobilis That's about how it worked, though there were some scheduling swaps, which is why both my episodes are earlier. #
  • @Nobilis @dsawyer Indeed, a chain. I definitely recall a few places that went in way different directions than I'd imagined. 🙂 #
  • @Nobilis @etherius @dsawyer Aye, there's the rub! #
  • @jchutchins A wizard did it! #
  • @jchutchins Actually, if it's a bad thing, I blame gremlins or my little brother. If it's good, I take credit. #
  • Listening to the now-infamous ep of NPR Planet Money about @jonathancoulton. The nay-sayers are really pushing a bizarre straw man argument. #
  • The question was whether or not he has a viable business model, not "Will he completely replace the entire concept of Music Studio Labels?" #
  • Finished watching Ep 7 of Game of Thrones on @HBOGo and it was awesome. 🙂 #
  • Pro-tip: If you've been feeling kind of crappy, check to see if you've been forgetting to take your "Not-Feel-Crappy" medicine. #
  • @MattFnWallace What about the new one that has two separate spots on the label, one for "Cold" and one for "Super-Cold"? (A real thing) #
  • #Balticon is imminent! Yeaahharrghlebah! (Sound of being really excited but not remotely prepared so anxious about packing.) #
  • Note to all owners of human bodies: Sometimes things will happen to your body that you will want to tell others about. Don't. #
  • Twitter is doing something weird with retweets. I get emails that my tweets have been retweeted but don't actually SEE them in Twitter. #
  • @jramboz They look pretty official. If they are phishing, they're pretty slick. Look just like twitter's own email notifications. #
  • @comedy4cast It is specifying actual people that I know and follow. #
  • @womprat99 Hmm could be. Never encountered this before though. #
  • @TonyMast I do now, apparently. #
  • @jramboz I don't mind the emails, just confusing that I don't see the actual tweets. #
  • @digitaldion I think that's the only logical explanation. #
  • I <3 baby corns. #
  • Argh! Work, stay done! Stay! Staaaaayyy! #
  • Sweet! Won a free copy of Total War: Shogun 2 for PC from @DogHouseSystems I've heard great things! #
  • Space Casey Script and Activity book now available on Amazon Marketplace! http://amzn.to/jROT8N #
  • @VividMuse Will definitely have them at Balticon! 🙂 #
  • @nuchtchas @VividMuse @choochus @PGHolyfield I have to pick up my Space Casey artist at the airport and will be back to hotel just after 10 #
  • Here at Balticon & unloaded the car. Bad News: I have to get right back in it. Good news: it's to pick up my Space Casey artist at airport! #
  • Awake and showered for first official day of #Balticon Last night's pre-con revelry was way fun too! #
  • For Roto sub, how about bits of Justice League meeting, Monster shopping network Fangstensions and your Brian Blessed Xmas tree thing? #
  • @Gary_TheGreat Yes! Plenty of copies for sale! #
  • Listening to @mightymur read from Playing for Keeps 2 at #Balticon #
  • @comedy4cast Yes, sir! Oh wait, I did it again! Damn! #
  • @SFEley @pgholyfield and I just sat down at the Cinamon tree restaurant. You should join us! JOIN US! #
  • The new hip nickname for @pgholyfield is "Mister Cryptic Tweet". #
  • Quoth @vividmuse "Here's that protein shake I told you about. It's not like sperm." #
  • @geekacres Wanted to join you buy just too early. 🙁 #
  • Brunch with @pcharing @mgcady @MAinPa at #Balticon Soon, heading to help at the Dragon Moon dealer's room. #
  • @indianajim Sorry to hear about that. I sympathize. 🙁 #
  • Hanging out at the Dragon Moon Press table in the Dealer room here at #Balticon #
  • Manning the Dragon Moon dealer table at #Balticon until 6, then iPad panel. #
  • @jramboz I do have some objects which are available for money exchange. #
  • @pcharing Don't think I didn't notice you walk right by me in the Dealer room, Mr. Haring. I see how it is. #
  • Tweeting from my iPad while on the iPad panel at #Balticon #
  • Horror! The bar at #Balticon has been taken over by 20-something normals in suits! #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-05-22

  • @tdog4494 @Mainframe I really hope Phillip makes it to the end though, so we can here the culmination of his secret plan. #
  • Stayed up late to watch both Survivor Finale / Reunion, and then Game of Thrones, and damn if they weren't both worth it! #
  • @mainpa Hmm.. Seems to be a wordpress issue. Will have to investigate. All files should still work though and W100M has it's own feed also. #
  • @Mainframe @GailSimone Hooray for corgis! #
  • Reading several reviews of LA Noir and the consensus seems to be "Frustratingly just short of perfect." #
  • More info soon, but if you'll be at #Balticon , leave Sunday night free for the "Time Traveller's Ball" New Media Party! #
  • @daniinnc The review scores are good, but the review text spends lots of time on the flaws. So maybe big ambition coming a teensy bit short. #
  • .@Gary_TheGreat At the #Balticon Time Traveller's Ball, guests from any era are welcome! #
  • Just finished something I've been working on for a while. I'll tell you all about it soon. #
  • Also, but unrelated to the last tweet. The issue with my website omni-feed should now be resolved. Please let me know if it isn't working. #
  • So here's the dilemma. I have an announcement. Do I make a mini-announcement now and then pretty it up later, or wait to launch when pretty? #
  • Just realized how silly it is to ask people on Twitter about delayed gratification. :p #
  • Space Casey Season One: Illustrated Script & Activity Book is now available for purchase! http://tinyurl.com/SpaceCaseyBook #
  • A blog post and video with all the details will come soon, but the book is available now! #
  • It will come to Amazon as well, but buy from Lulu now to have in time for #Balticon (I will also have copies there with me.) #
  • It is available as print or PDF, but I recommend print because it has activities, mazes, word searches & pictures suitable for coloring. #
  • The Space Casey Illustrated Script & Activity book contains 42 pictures & 10 activities! http://tinyurl.com/SpaceCaseyBook #
  • @mgcady Hadn't really settled that yet. What do they have in mind? #
  • @hildebrandj Writing of Season 2 is in progress! #
  • @planetx Hooray! Perhaps you even gotta wear shades! #
  • @Mainframe Thanks! Hope you enjoy! #
  • Many thanks for all the retweets, everyone! #
  • @mightymur @petersagal I'm not a fan of Ben Stein, but he does have a point that false accusations happen. Remember the Duke lacrosse team? #
  • @indianajim I really liked both Little Big Planet and Infamous. Though too bad for me I already have all five offered games. #PSNCreditPLZ #
  • @mightymur Agreed. That part was asinine. #
  • Boooo! Once again, life conspires to keep me away from board-game night with @mightymur #
  • @mightymur *sobs* … I actually re-scheduled stuff so I could go this week! Then BAM! Last-minute day-job conference call. Stupid bam. #
  • That's actually just a blog post, not a podcast. 😛 : The Space Casey Illustrated Script and Activity Book is here! http://bit.ly/m0dNlj #
  • If you missed it: The Space Casey Illustrated Script and Activity Book is here! Read all about it! http://bit.ly/m0dNlj #
  • Just remember: 'Crappy' is only an S away from 'Scrappy'. Remember also, however, that the reverse is also true. #
  • I am tired because of my brain and all the stuff. Tonight, I will treat my brain to some sleep and the stuff to a vacation from my fiddling. #
  • On an unrelated note, I just sat down into my chair very smoothly… Like a ninja. #
  • @kittyniciaian If only Merrian-Webster was so forward-thinking. #
  • @mgcady I don't think it's the relative noise level that matters as much as the attitude you express with the motion. #
  • @mgcady Indeed! Try to collect them all! #
  • @Gutshot I had not seen it, but it is stupendiculous. 😀 #
  • .@mightymur #VisualizeExplodingKittens #
  • I have spent the bulk of the evening learning and messing about with the Civilization board game. It is very complicated and awesome. #
  • My favorite line from the manual so far is the part where it explicitly allows "Non-binding promises." #
  • Just saw a Taco Bell commercial that showed 12 tacos all in a row, and my first thought was to try stacking them and eating like a Dagwood. #
  • Reminded of an argument with a person who insisted that HDTV looked worse than SD because with HD, they could see the "triangular pixels". #
  • On our walk this morning, Luna & I discovered an abandoned cupcake. Luna was unwavering and steadfast in her belief that she should eat it. #
  • @Mainframe That's true, of course, if easy was what I was looking for. But what I wanted was the Twelve-Taco Dagwood Challenge! #
  • Still thinking about the phrase "Abandoned cupcake". It feels important, somehow, like a verbal talisman of power, now unlocked. #
  • @Mainframe Ideals are like the stars in the sky. We may never touch them with our hands, but we use them to chart the course of our lives. #
  • @jchutchins @dodgyhoodoo Though no doubt, there will be many opportunities for them to try. #
  • Tweeted without comment: http://kitchentreats.wordpress.com/2010/09/20/teeny-taco-cupcakes/ #
  • Note: If you choose to participate in "Planking", I will not judge you. Neither will I be amused or impressed. #
  • Grr… Broke an underwire. The poking! THE POKING! #
  • @TonyMast "Stanley, poke your grandma!" #
  • @arkle @thelindsayellis Venue: Ellis Island! #
  • Just saw 'Source Code' and liked it a lot. Now heading to see 'Fast Five'. #

The Space Casey Illustrated Script and Activity Book is here!

Many people have asked me if I would ever put Space Casey out as a book, and I thought about it, but the story always felt better suited to script format than prose, that is how it was written, after all. So if I was to simply put out a copy of the script in print, I wanted it to have something extra. Enter Steph Cherrywell. I had admired Steph’s artwork for some time and a collaboration seemed like a perfect fit.

 

Buy it now from Lulu! (Coming to Amazon soon!)

Available in print or PDF (though I recommend print for the coloringy-activity-y goodness!)

And so here we are. The Space Casey Illustrated Script and Activity Book! In addition to the full script of Space Casey, the book also contains 42 awesome illustrations and 10 original activities, just like those great coloring and activity books you got when you went with your mom to the grocery store and she wouldn’t buy you a toy, but a book, even a Transformers or My Little Pony activity book was maybe okay! Check out some shots!

 

 

 

My corgi Luna would really like you to buy one, and you wouldn’t want to disappoint Luna… would you?

Buy it now, so Luna won’t be sad.

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2011-05-15

  • @jchutchins Definitely helmet with mask. The hood always had a sort-of 'laundry day' feel to me. #
  • At the doctor about my intermittent back spasm. I predict they will tell me to rest, alternate ice and heat, and take advil. :p #
  • Back appointment a bit more helpful than I expected. My predicted advice was supplemented by muscle relaxants. #
  • @Bekemeyer I've got HBO GO through my directTV, and it is pretty amazing how much they're putting on there. #
  • Via Boingboing.net A video that recuts Disney's "The Lion King" into a summary of all five seasons of "The Wire". http://bit.ly/joD9UA #
  • @DDog @wootshirt hehe Yes! Very cool. #
  • I was halfway through a bad joke tweet, but then deleted it. "No, that's too easy. I'll do a weird meta announcement / apology instead." #
  • "Don't ya hate it when your perfectly-aimed angry bird fails because it hits the last bird which hasn't disappeared yet?" #badiphonecomedy #
  • "What is the deal with all these Droid users? I mean, don't they like Kool-Aid?" #badiphonecomedy #
  • Ugh… These back meds are making me feel not quite myself. I'm pretty sure I didn't used to be able to do math and walk in a straight line. #
  • @jchutchins "Yes, Ms. Ellis, we thought we'd skip the part where you become a genius and go straight to the dumb part. Saves time, you see." #
  • Just had a fun story idea: What if it turned out that only half the population has true free will and the rest are 100% deterministic? #
  • @jchutchins By putting $100 into a small envelope and mailing it to me. (because of quantum) #
  • @dcperry @spiritualtramp Hey! I wait in line for cafeteria food, and I am not nobody! I am SOMEBODY! I am! *sobs* #
  • @dcperry @spiritualtramp We are cool! We should have a club. The "Cafeteria Line Somebodies"! #
  • I hang by my fingernails over Crazytown Gorge at the best of times, and these muscle relaxants are making my nose itch. #
  • @jrblackwell Be strong. #
  • @PeterJReaper *fist-bump* #
  • @BetaClone076 Ooh, what'cha playing? #
  • Back feels better, but I feel like a gremlin is following me around with a bat, just waiting for me to be distracted & make the wrong move. #
  • Today is both Friday the 13th AND my little brother's 30th birthday. Coincidence? I think… so, actually. It probably is a coincidence. #
  • @indianajim Uh oh… The gremlin just pointed to the bleachers! *holds very still* #
  • @GreenGlam Well, as it happens, I am unique in my ability to stay a 20-something hipster despite being 33. #
  • @GreenGlam Incidentally, you are the first person I am aware of to call me a hipster. I find that I am pleased. #
  • Just ordered the Civilization board game from Fantasy Flight. http://www.fantasyflightgames.com/edge_minisite_sec.asp?eidm=128&esem=2 GEEEK! #
  • Tank odd eats fried egg! #
  • Wow. The number of TV shows that have made me cry is small, but this week, Bones made the list. #
