In which i learned shit on Twitter

 

10 things I learned on twitter and one I didn’t

 

 So, I’ve been on Twitter quite a lot lately and things just keep scrolling by in front of me.  I realized that if you paid enough attention,  you could learn quite a bit on Twitter.  I have decided to share some of the things I’ve learned JUST in the past 24 hours with you so that you can see what you’re missing.

1.            Girls are now soaking their tampons in Vodka (before use)

                (Yep, read it yesterday…apparently it soaks in faster so you get drunker faster…and who said efficiency was dead?) 

2.            When using LinkedIn, “Help” is your friend

                (yes, it’s all about networking and asking for help) 

3.            Google declares war on content farms

                (Gee, you can’t grow anything anymore) 

4.            Breast milk ice cream now available in a wide range of flavors…in London                 

                (I can only imagine how fast this shit is going to sell out…put me down for two scoops)

5.             Only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday.  ~Author Unknown

                 (hahaha…I love this one) 

6.            The economy still sucks

                (this one seems fairly self-explanatory to me) 

7.            You are not as successful as you want to be because you are worried that you might miss something                            

                (I don’t even know what this really means but it seemed so SAGE and Twitter is just full of sage)

8.            Do you want to know who you are? Don’t ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you. ~ Thomas Jefferson                

                 (Oh Tom, you sly dog.  Still out there telling us what to do!)

9.            Charlie Sheen is fucking crazy

               (Another one that seems to be fairly obvious) 

10.         Catherine Zeta-Jones is honored at Buckingham palace               

               (Seriously, she was given the title Commander of the Order of the British Empire…why, I have no fucking clue)

11.         Apparently everybody does NOT have those two holes at the top of their mouth..only some of us

                (I don’t even have a clue why this is true.)              

 

 

  OK, so this is obviously a short post full of insignificant stuff but hey, this is my blog and I can do whatever the hell I want!  Just saying…

    #1 is a very dangerous trend. Alcohol poisoning is becoming more common because the “efficiency” of that method of getting drunk doesn’t put the alcohol through the filter known as the liver.

    My husband doesn’t think Charlie Sheen is crazy. He thinks he’s acting. Go figure. Joaquin Phoenix did it, why not Charlie Sheen, right? LOL

      i couldn’t believe when i read that tampon thing…it’s crazy…i need to talk to my girls about that! Charlie Sheen, i think he’s batshit crazy because if he’s acting he’s ruined a show and goodwill with the public. Not that i ever have seen the show anyways.

      He should have stopped after Platoon!

    The tampon thing was on a Law & Order show the other day. I never knew this! I am sure I would have tried it back in the day…

      It’s crazy! When I was younger alcohol was legal at 18 so you could drink all night so we didn’t binge as much as my kids do. I think it’s all so horrible. And the tampon think? OMFG

    The only thing that surprises me here somehow is the tampon thing. Weird.

    Vodka on tampons? Seriously? Hmmmmm, I wonder if it works with whiskey?

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      well, it’s actually highly dangerous but i’m sure it works with whiskey too!

      That’s what I thought but somebody argued against it and said he researched it..so, who knows?

    Vodka? I’m so grossed out.

      I know…who thinks of this crap? It’s crazy!

    Re: Vodka tampons – I saw something like that on The Doctors – it’s scary & fucking stupid shit – they can die from alcohol poisoning because of how much faster the alcohol is absorbed into the body. Fucking idiots.

      I know…I hate the drinking age being 21…it leads to all this crap IMO

    Glad I’m not the only one who is completely gobsmacked by the vodka tampon thing.

    I can say with much confidence that that is something I would never have tried in my younger years. I did A LOT of REALLY stupid things but I was (and am) very picky about what goes in my hoo-ha.

    And what the hell is the “Commander of the Order of the British Empire” anyway?

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      i know…the tampon thing is nuts…i don’t think i would have ever done it either and i was completely dumbfounded when i heard about it. Who knows waht the commander thing is ..so damn stupid, right?

    I saw all of those on Twitter except #1. Tampons and vodka. What is wrong with these girls.

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      No telling…but I’m certainly going to make sure my girls aren’t doing this

    Ha! Everyone one addicted to Twitter should write a “Things I learned on Twitter” post. It’s genius! And credit you, of course for the idea. I have to admit, when you were talking about those holes in the top of your mouth, I was a little, “Huh???”

    • Lynn

      it was hilarious compiling this list…there was SO much to choose from

  12. I really want to dig into #7. Why does a game of whack a mole come to mind

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      I have no idea because a) I don’t get 7 and I just figured it was too deep for me and b) what the hell is a game of whack a mole? Or is that guacamole? Hmmmm?

    I read that thing about the vodka/tampon and am really just so thankful I am not in my teens or 20s anymore.

      I have two girls who are 20 & 21. I talked to one about this today and will also speak to the other one. She wanted to know how it was even possible. It’s just crazy, right?

    I’m confused about the last one. Where might find these two holes?

    1 & 2 have me baffled! lol. Creative, I…guess? Whoa.
    Okay, it’s a lil whack.

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      One is true, it’s being reported everywhere. # Two was on an article I read about Linked In…and the holes, they’re connected to your nose!

    Two holes at the top of your mouth? Do you mean a nose? I have no clue what that means.

    • Lynn
      March 1, 2011

      It was a takeoff on an earlier post…where you have two holes at the back of your mouth where your nose drains sown
