OMG - I just *don't get* Twitter! I am on it, and I use it to keep up with: my daughter, a few quilters friends, a handful of bloggers that I like. Stuff that makes me either think or smile. Both is a bonus!

OTOH, I get messages almost hourly that some bozo "hoo cant spel" and types stuff like "i no yur biz" or "teh cat just puked" have started following me. Eh??? Why?

Oops, I found out that "you're supposed to follow someone if they follow you ..." NOT HAPPENING.

I cannot force myself to read that misspelled drivel and I have *no* intention of following an idiot just because they follow me. What the hell is that all about anyway? I just don't get it.

Timing is Everything

Why do Girl Scout cookies go on sale right when I start noticing the thunder thighs I've grown over the winter?

Holier than thou - not a nice attitude

Here's what a quilt designer and book author had to say about my quilting video blog:
"Since the blog owner does say whose video it is, it's okay, but there is no "About Us" page to say whose blog it is. It also contains links with logos on the sidebar, and I'm wondering it these companies know their logos are being used in this way. Not really great blogging form. M***** P*****"
She was answering a netiquette question about posting a video without stating that it was "used with permission".

She's got some nerve criticizing my blog when she joins Yahoo groups just to promote her book - something I've seen her do. Second, there are only two pages on the blog - the first page with the videos and a second page with some tips, which has my name, email address and photo! Third, the logos are direct links to the blogs or websites that the logos came from - something she could easily have seen if she'd just looked!

I am sure she's shocked that other quilting companies would allow their logos on my blog (out of friendship and kindness) because she doesn't understand the concept of sharing and caring.

Most designers are nice - she's a total jerk.

Women. Bloggers. It's bound to happen sooner or later. I don't know if it's a menopause meltdown or just plain old self centeredness, but "As The Blog Turns", in full barfing, self pitying, chest beating, "who are my real friends" crybabying keyboard shitfest has begun on a blog I used to read.

I don't accept the invitation to that princess pity party. Thanking GOD, Hewlett Packard and Microsoft for the DELETE key. Delete from blog ring, delete from Facebook. Can someone email me the delete from brain cells link?
