twitter busted

Well, I suppose it was inevitable.

Now that twitter is "popular", there's more people, and with more people come more problems, hence it seems to be down at least once a day, EVERY day. I was late to the twitter game (only joined about 3 months ago) but it's like serious crack to me. And now that I'm a junkie twitter crack whore, I need my fix whenever I want my fix, and damnit I do NOT want my dope all cut up w/ baby aspirin or other "broken" bits. Ya know?


And FWIW, I would totally pay to have my twitter account (that's how addicted I am), IF and only if they actually had the thing up and running all day, like it used to be. Of course, with pay accounts comes Super Elitism Attitude; i.e. what would they give me if I paid $15-$20 a year for twitter? More bandwidth, more archive capacity, more profile gadgets? How would they designate pay accounts so our special-ness is very clear to those don't pay? See where I'm going with this?

Anyway...

Since I can't send out my usual 9000 tweets today, I'll post some of my Daily Fun here instead. Which is probably what I should be doing anyway, instead of obsessing about an addictive little application that never works anymore.

My Day (so far), in a nutshell:

Woke early (5am) & chilled in bed sending tweets about Hot Political Issues until almost 7am... Let the Evil Toto dog outside to potty, even though she'd already gone #1 and #2 in the kitchen - as she has done every single day since I brought her home from the boarding kennel last Thursday... Started a pot of coffee... Took a shower... Baby girl woke up at 8am (way late for her, she must be entering a growth spurt)... Got her out of bed & changed her diaper, dressed her, made breakfast for her, etc. ... While she was watching Sesame Street, I got dressed too... Drove to her Pediatrician where I thought she had a 9:30am appointment... Turns out her it's NEXT week... Huh. How did I f**k that up, I wonder?... Took Dex to school... Stopped at Chevron to gas up my Subaru (13 gallons = $54)... Went to USPS to pick up mail that I had on "Vacation Hold"... Drove home... Arrived to discover incontinent dog had AGAIN gone potty all over the kitchen floor... Made instant decision to give her "The Gas Pipe"... Took her to the ASPCA instead as an "Owner Relinquish"... Yes, it's true I have finally given my parents dog away (I'm sure someone will adopt her, so don't judge me man!)... Went to Fusion Sushi on Palo Verde & Spring for lunch but I can't really recommend them, sorry... Came home to an empty & dog-poop-free house (exhale)... Grabbed bottle of cold water from fridge ... Sat down at my desk, dropped iPhone into charger, turned on the iMac...

And here I am.

Whew!

I'm sure I've forgotten tons of other stuff, but this will have to suffice until I can get back on twitter. Will be time to go get the baby girl from school soon, would like to check up on my email & other computer related stuff before I leave again.

Hope y'all are having a good day!

Cheerios,

I'm sometimes glad when Twitter is down because it reminds me to read blogs again.
