Twitter-cation Comes with Umbrella-Drinks, Right?

It feels weird not to check Twitter before bed.

This the tweet I almost posted last night – before I remembered that in order to do so, I’d have to log-in to Twitter.

Immediately afterward I debated whether I was allowed to read e-mail notifications of DM’s. (Can I?)

This could be a long week.

When I saw Nova Ren Suma discussing a Twitter-cation last week, I thought, how sad! I’ll miss her and Tiffany Trent’s commentary. Then others climbed aboard and I thought, how brave.

Last night Tye and Victoria asked me if I was in, and, demonstrating my absolute inability to resist peer-pressure, I caved.

It feels weird.

My mind automatically forms sub-140 character soundbites:

Who was the idiot who decided orange and cranberry belong in the same muffin?

Confession: I have officially eaten more Revision Skittles than we distributed to trick-or-treaters.

Has anyone read GIRL IN THE ARENA? I like the story, but am struggling with the lack of “”marks.

How will I share my excitement about the new Jesse McCartney song “Body Language”? Or confess my St. Matt-mocked crush on him? Or share how I caught St. Matt humming the tune after I played it on repeat for an hour. *gigglefit*

The worst part, however, will be not knowing what’s going on with everyone else. So if you could all e-mail me regular updates of your day, that’d be great. I won’t even limit you to 140 characters.

  • We should have umbrella drinks! Why don’t we have umbrella drinks?

    I feel so out of touch right now… and it’s just been one single day!

  • Hi Tiffany,
    Re: Girl in the Arena. You know, we live in a world of abbreviations and quick symbols. We text, we LOL. So if you can, think of that hyphen or dash that indicates dialogue as just a quick and easy way to mark the page when someone’s talking.
    Have a good night.

  • Nova – by the end of the week I’m going to want to curse or kiss you! Either way, umbrella drinks are going to be part of my Twittercation survival kit.

  • Lise – thanks for stopping by! I’m sucked into Girl in the Arena and it was great to hear your explanation for the -‘s vs. “‘s. I found it jarring at first, but now I’m too engrossed in the plot to notice.

  • Because I don’t want to TEMPT you back out of your Dedicated T******-cation, I won’t even MENTION the word T******. I also won’t mention any of the LURID GOSSIP over there, because that would just be CRUEL of me. (Don’t worry. Not ALL of the T****** gossip is about you.)

    Hang in there. *evil grin*

  • You are brave to take a Twitter-cation although I will miss your LOL-inspiring tweets. Hang in there and be strong.

    P.S. My mind automatically writes 140 statements now too.

  • Emily – you’re MEAN

    Linda – You’re MEANER

    (Now I just need someone to be MEANEST and this is a lesson in comparative/superlative adjectives).

    Not that I want a MEANEST. I’m already suffering, there’s not need to torment me! *sniff*

  • Tye – We. Can. Do. This. Cupcakes?

    Andrea – I will spend this week coming up with FUNNIER stuff to post next week. Get ready!

  • VY

    This may mean you’ll need to invent an umbrella drink with Skittles in it! Necessity is the mother of invention!

  • You are missed ~*~

  • VY – I knew there was a reason I <3 you! Genius!

    Courtney – *hands you tissues* But I’m back now, so maybe use it for arts and crafts. Or allergies.
