twitter smitter

I thought I could do it.  I really did.  For years Queenkandis has tried to convince me that it's way more efficient and a hell of lot less time consuming than Facebook and my beloved blogosphere.  In fact, Queen has just about dropped her blog altogether now that she can send out only what can be said in 130 characters or less and while I get the logic in that, I can say with confidence that wit in brevity is just not my thing.  It's maintenance and I'm very bad at maintenance.  Call it lazy or stubborn or both but I 100% failed at Twitter within my first week for all those reasons and I'm totally ok with that.  Wine and xanax apparently leads to nothing but delusions of grandeur and occasional memory lapse.  At the end of the day I'm a one-sided Twit(ter-er).  I appreciate the updates whether they're politically charged by my bestie @andersoncooper or whether they're very important nuggets of insight from my man @kanyewest assuring his followers that he does it with the lights on.  Either way, instant entertainment and none of which will be reciprocated.  So if you're one of my 14 followers (only 6 of whom I actually know which totally adds to the weird factor) then continue to be disappointed by my inactivity.  I am only here to follow and voyeur.  That is all.

PS - Things I'm too lazy to tweet:  
1.  The Packers actually won the Super Bowl.
2.  The people of Egypt were heard and Mubarak stepped down.  The demand for democracy is contagious as other countries like Bahrain, Yemen, and Libya have followed suit.  Sadly the death toll rises but the people march on.  
3.  Seinfeld's 'Master of Your Domain' episode will never get old.
4.  2011 started off shitty and then got shittier yet I somehow remain convinced it has to get better.
5.  I can't believe I don't have Radiohead's The King of Limbs in my hot little hands yet.  Will someone please get on that?

Are you still a Blackberry user? If so, that's part of the problem. Twitter for iPhone makes updating a breeze. I can do it while driving! Not that I would of course. That would be bad.
