Like I was saying....

My Year with Twitter

Twitter is interesting. I signed up and didn’t get it at first. I posted maybe once every 2 months. But then once I moved to Oxford I started really getting into the swing of it. It helps when you have people you know in “real life” using it as well. So when Pat (@tapdraw) started using it too, we both seemed to explode with it. If you don’t twitter yet, you should. It’s easy. Fun. Informative. And makes you cooler (right?)
Anyhow, I saw Pat did this, so I figured I’d give it a try. But it was really hard to cull down my twitter posts from 2008. So I’ll not put them all on the first page. But here are some highlights of my Twitter posts from 2008 [taken from about 34 pages of twitters (or 717 updates)].

  1. An annual Twitter list might be handy to have — lots easier than keeping all of those old desk calendars. Since watching many courtroom dramas as a child, I have been concerned with the possibility of being called to a witness stand and being asked, “Ms. G, would you please tell the court of your whereabouts on the night of January 57th?” I don’t know what I did on a certain date even a week ago much less a year or two ago; thus, the old calendars. I know; I’m odd that way (and other ways).
