Twitter

 

I have been using this service for a while and am totally hooked. www.twitter.com Why do I use it? It helps publicize my blog and it also helps me connect with likeminded people around the globe. Many people use it just for social networking alone, some to advertise their businesses and some use it just to spam you repeatedly.

 

I found this awesome article  by @HilzFuld that explains the why’s to use Twitter. Those of you not yet tweeting – hop on over and read it. It might get you into the TwitterVerse.

 

Those of you who tweet already – what made you join? Are you finding it as useful as you thought it would be? Tell what’s been the biggest benefit to you.

Bottoms Up!!

 

 

I am not a huge drinker. I am a social drinker, but not to the point that I get sloshed. I drink beer (only Corona) and single malts and girlie drinks. However, I like to think that I am something of a Single Malt aficionado (can that be feminized? Aficionada?) KoD doesn’t drink – I like to say he doesn’t drink yet, he hasn’t been married to me long enough – just kidding!!! But he understands that single malt is a big deal.

 

So Friday Night we were in Potomac, home of the Duke and Duchess of Lacrosse, brother to the KoD. The KoD mentioned my preference for single malt and my snobbishness about it. (The Duke and I had already spent time discussing which wines we would have for Kiddush and with the delicious meal). So, the Duke wished to test me and catch me out. He poured secretly from a blended scotch and from a single malt, and brought me both shot glasses, not telling me which was which. I proceeded to knock both back, immediately identifying the blend. It was just not….not……not single malt. Apparently I impressed the Duke because he brought out Johnnie Walker blue label and allowed me a glass. (yes it is a blend, but a blend of the finest whiskies you could ever taste – Blue Label….). After all that I could still hold a conversation and walk a straight line! Good thing our bedroom was mere metres away!

 

Apparently I passed muster – I got the Blue…..Yay!

Appropriate or not?

 

I recently received an email from an old flame, a generic “add me to your Yahoo Messenger list”. I don’t use Yahoo Messenger anymore, having decided that Twitter and FaceBook more than suit my communication needs online. I haven’t spoken to this particular guy in months, and then it was a very brief email from him saying Mazel Tov for the wedding. We dated very briefly (a month?) way back when – nice enough guy but obviously not for me.

 

So why is he adding me, or wanting to add me, to his contact list? Last I hear he was engaged to get married. I discussed this with my KoD who agreed with me that this is not appropriate – but the innocent part of me (yes there is one) wonders if this could be simply an innocuous way for him to say hi once in a while.

 

Thoughts?

To My KoD……

 

lyrics:

1-2-1-2-3-4
Give me more loving than I’ve ever had
Make me feel better when I’m feeling sad
Tell me I’m special even though I know I’m not
Make me feel good when I hurt so bad
Barely getting mad
I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy
Its as easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words 
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
Give me more loving from the very start
Piece me back together when I fall apart
Tell me things you never even tell your closest friends
Make me feel good when I hurt so bad
You’re the best that I’ve had
And I’m so glad I found you
I love being around you
You make it easy
It’s easy as 1-2-1-2-3-4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words 
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
(I love you) I love you
You make it easy 
It’s easy as 1 2 1 2 3 4
There’s only one thing
To Do
Three words
For you
(I love you) I love you
There’s only one way to say
Those three words 
That’s what I’ll do
(I love you) I love you
(I love you) I love you
1-2-3-4
I love you
(I love you) I love you
