I had a carrot cake doughnut once and it was okay. Buttermilk/old fashioned are my favorite kinds of doughnuts in general (after that French crullers and after that glazed) so I liked the one that Do-Rite (all day doughnut).

Here is a tweet that I like to think about sometimes because it makes me think of jaymc. It is by twitter user @charMANdork:

"it is 2024. you wake up one morning and scream 'HOLY SHIT' your flip your desk 'I FORGOT ABOUT DRE'"

(sic)

This is I think my favorite tweet of all time, from now suspended user @FoodNetwerk:

"Spook the HECK out of your guests this Halloween by putting dry ice into a bowl of water & then cutting your own head off and fucking it."

So ends the summary of My Time on Twitter, Jan. 2012 through April 2012.

I just made a couple of good tweets.

I don't know why I don't have like 8,000 followers.

And a book of my tweets in the bathroom books section of Barnes & Nobles everywhere.

I love Food Netwerk's tweets, including the one ca quoted.

I wish I were into Twitter b/c it can be fun to read when funny people are writing, but for regular folks' writing, it feels like FB posts whittled down to their most mundane ("Why can't I find my sock?"). And I don't like the way replies and conversations work.

Twitter's my bread and butter.

caro's johnson (Eazy), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:36 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeh, it's good for marketing, obviously. But I don't like it for friend time.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

It's better for friend time if you make the friends there instead of trying to interact with current ones.

Jeff, Monday, 30 April 2012 22:54 (1 year ago) Permalink

I can't even imagine how that would work. Literally.

Pita Malört (Je55e), Monday, 30 April 2012 22:56 (1 year ago) Permalink

Just mingle.

most of my tweeting is soccer shit, it's better that way

Silky Slim (dan m), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 03:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

Most of my tweeting is RTs of absurd shit or political shit.
Then tweets about public transportation.
Then tweets about Star Trek.

Jeff was singing "Stacy's Mom" this morning and now it's in my head, but it's a mash-up of Stacy's Mom and the Nationwide jingle so it goes:

Stacy's mom has got it going on
Sta-cy's mom.

I also always mash up "Hips Don't Lie" and "All Night Long" so it goes:

Laaaaa la la a (I don't know the lyrics)
My hips don't lie
and I'm starting to feel it now (see above)
We're going to
party, La Bamba, fiesta forever
come on and sing along

Haha who is Stacy?

The Halsted St bridge on my commute is open! Yay! But we're still taking the detour bc the bus driver is not authorized to take the bridge! Boo!

Happy worker's day, Chicago!

what are you wearing to the haymarket reenactment? sexy coal worker? sexy triangle shirtwaist factory worker? Imagine.

former personal denim advisor to the mayor, (La Lechera), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:03 (1 year ago) Permalink

Imagine flat-front slacks and a crisp shirt. I'm dressed as the oppressor, I guess.

cue "White Rabbit" (kenan), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:07 (1 year ago) Permalink

Thx E-Zed, but not today.

This detour has been nice for Groupon employees. The year long bus reroute created a stop directly in front of their door.

That reminds me Have you guys noticed that some big buildings have shuttle service for workers in that building? Groupon's building has that to and from the Metra, and the Blue Cross bulldog has some too. Pretty cool.

Xps - I'm wearing the invisible hand of capitalism on my shoulders and wrinkles on my brown.

Will check out. But now I work.

wrinkles on my brown

Yeah, that's not special.

I'm wearing a red shirt! And working!

Jesse Chicago is OK. How did you find that site, EZ?

Pita Malört (Je55e), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:47 (1 year ago) Permalink

We've been watching Star Trek: TOS* and I think I'm subconsciously dressing like Star Trek space babes as a result (today - long blue striped dress, electric blue eye makeup, slight bump-it-esque elevation to my hair).

*This show is so fucking sexist it is almost no fun to watch. I keep hoping it gets a little less awful, and then Kirk will fight with a clone of himself (this happens like every third episode), and that is always hilarious and I think, "Okay, I can keep watching this." Then the next episode involves yet another plot about a woman who appears beautiful but is actually OLD and UGLY (read: they omit the eye make up, pop a plain wig on her, and make her look roughly my age), and is FOOLING men into popping BONERS for her which is a CRIME in SPACE FUTURE. Ma'am you are charged with four counts of CAUSING BONERS UNDER FALSE PRETENSES. We sentence you to looking 40 years old.

In summary: Star Trek: TOS: mad sexist, but space babes are mad stylish.

J: I saw a full-page ad when reading CS Interiors on a bus-ride home at midnight last night, and it made me laugh and envy you for having your own logo.

Four! Wow.

former personal denim advisor to the mayor, (La Lechera), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:51 (1 year ago) Permalink

Four. Kirk, Bones, Scotty, Red Shirt (as a half-Vulcan (hahahaha typed "Vulvan") Spock can control his boners).

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:53 (1 year ago) Permalink

on may day even star trek red shirts get to live

Silky Slim (dan m), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:55 (1 year ago) Permalink

vulcans totally can't control their boners tho, as shown in TOS episode "amok time": "Seemingly embarrassed, Spock informs Kirk that his condition is called Pon farr, a syndrome that all Vulcan males painfully endure periodically throughout their adult life.[note 1] During this time, they must mate or die."

1staethyr, Tuesday, 1 May 2012 14:57 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yeah, but Pon farr is cyclical. In every day life, they can control their boners. In "Mudd's Women" one of, um, Mudd's women tries to rub up on Spock and he's just like :| and she comments on his self-control.

Meanwhile Bones is all

Polly biscuit face (carl agatha), Tuesday, 1 May 2012 15:04 (1 year ago) Permalink

so that's why they call him bones

I saved part of a donut from yesterday for a treat for myself today and when I turned my back, the dog licked it. I heard her lick it. But I can't be mad at her b/c she looked so contrite and pitiful.

Did you eat it anyway?
