A few months ago, my employer went on Twitter for business purposes. I can only assume this is because the president's daughter now works for us in the marketing dept. Whatev. Still didn't care enough to see what the fuss was about.

I almost signed up yesterday. Becuse of the Bronx Zoo Cobra.

Well, the poor little cobra has been found at last, thus likely killing @bronxzooscobra.

I've enjoyed the #snakeonthetown, but alas. Honestly I'm just glad the critter was found alive.

I get weird follows every once in a while. What the heck did I do to get @KingdomWarrior * to follow me?

*to translate that for folks who didn't grow up around fundies, "Kingdom" = kingdom of god, and "warrior" means person who does him some killing** in the name of the prince of peace.

**presumably metaphorical, but I always wonder.

I had some fun as well. Believe it or not, the alcohol had worn off.

I missed those news stories in '95 about how we roasted old people for food and the average medicare recipient could feed a family of 4.

Sorry, I was wrong. Cancer is only cured until Thursday.

Enjoyed this from Rob Huebel:
2:52 am. Can't sleep. Too excited about Royal Wedding. Will the DJ at the reception play cool songs like 'Mustang Sally' so we can dance?

I couldn't quitefigure out the correct level of sarcasm with which to read the article, but I did get the impression that the speaker (if not the author) had a big old boner for Men and for Manhood.

All that 'Let me thrust my bayonet deep into this big Franco loyalist' stuff. Couldn't tell how intentional that was.

No, I can't take credit for that! I think I picked it up from either Timothy (@NotHF) or possibly Julian Sanchez (@normative). I later found out that others were doing it before I noticed.

Weird, because when I did a topic search, only your stuff showed up. Which is really weird, because I follow both Timothy and Julian.
