Twitter, Trash and Pens

by Sherry Riter in Twitter

Late last night (I can’t say what time or my family will think I’ve lost my mind), I findly started a Twitter account. Did you notice my new little blue birdie in the right side bar? Before I became a Twitterer (yes, that’s a word), I wanted to really know why it is such a craze. I found some great information pertaining to twittering. I think the best was this YouTube video that really tells the whole story and is worth watching.

Video on YouTube “What Is Twitter?”Today I spent some time searching the internet for crazy stuff (which I found), but I did find something that just made me laugh out loud while being totally alone in the room. I would love to see my mother’s face when she reads this one! My mother is rather “frou-frou” meaning that she is a very proper and “fancy” dresser. I think it is impossible for her to look messy! I mean that in the nicest way! Anyway, I love “hair” and my family could be called the “Big Hair Clan”. I don’t know how that happened, but maybe we never left the 80’s. Here is a “new” way of fancifying your hair. You just HAVE TO look at this one!

Fancy Up Your HairMy family has a “pen” thing. My husband has to have a certain pen. My daughter goes crazy if she doesn’t have “the” pen (I don’t remember what kind). My mom raves over her “non-splotchy” pen…etc. I guess it is important to have a good pen. Yeah, whatever. I found an ergonomic pen today…woo hoo. If you are a pen-a-holic and you are big into ergonomics, you may find this to be just the coolest pen ever. Don’t forget to check the price tag on this baby (choking as I type the price). It is just a mere $140. Yeah, you read that right!

The Ergonomic PenI’m off to see my Twitter account. I heard on the radio that someone has earned the title of the “Oldest Twitterer” so I looked her up online. If you think you’re too old, you’re wrong. Ivy Bean is 104 years old. Isn’t that fantastic!

Ivy BeanCatch ya’ later! I’ll look for you on Twitter!

I started on Twiter a few months back. Don't really get the point about advertising everything you do, but I have found a few hysterical posts.
That pen is something else. A Bic looks so much safer.
I'm following you now.
