Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-12-26

  • Finally saw LAWRENCE OF ARABIA last night. It was at the Aero in 70mm. It was awesome. Peter O'Toole FTW! #
  • Watched Cisco commercial w/ Ellen Page.Realized I was too busy coveting her pretty shiny hair to give a damn about communications solutions. #
  • @kspidel Eventually, yes. But it's hard for those of us who feel a little too intensely. Took me 9 years after my greatest love. in reply to kspidel #
  • @kspidel And now I'm with someone I'm devoted to. It is possible. in reply to kspidel #
  • @kspidel I think keeping the dating on a casual level helps to loosen the connection to the past a little bit at a time. in reply to kspidel #
  • @kspidel Trying to force the issue of getting over your past love only strengthens it, because it's still about the past & not the future. in reply to kspidel #
  • @kspidel I'm glad I could help – you're welcome! in reply to kspidel #
  • @kspidel You don't suck. You're just feeling your way & your mouth keeps getting in the way. Mine has done that way too often in the past. in reply to kspidel #
  • Wonking out w/ CFN watching final Senate remarks on CNN before the vote on the current healthcare bill. Kept flipping off Mitch McChinless. #
  • @shawnp0wers @pie_r_round Sorry, but I keep putting a "t" after the "s" in that word, then I mentally snerk. Yes, I am apparently twelve. in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @shawnp0wers I tried the Eggnogg'n tea – it is BAD. in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @sotsogm @hentosz Not excited about AVATAR either. If CFN want's to see it (which is unlikely, actually) I might tag along. Otherwise: meh. in reply to sotsogm #
  • RT @abc7: Lomita man arrested at LAX after getting caught with 15 lizards strapped to chest http://bit.ly/5yFsel (I find this awesome – CE) #
  • @shawnp0wers Don't blame you for blocking it out – it is pretty heinous. I didn't know this was the second year it was released – why? WHY? in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @shawnp0wers Or maybe it sold very well, so they thought it was a best seller, but didn't know nobody actually had more than one bag. in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @Kate_Baker WooHoo! in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @omarg Congratulations! in reply to omarg #
  • @Stonekettle Few years ago she was known for very forgettable comedies, but I have a soft spot in my heart for her for her role in CLUELESS. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @sotsogm It's like NABOO out there. Temperate, dry and fairly pleasant. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @erong WooHoo! Congrats! in reply to erong #
  • @hentosz I saw THE IMAGINARIUM OF DR. PARNASSUS & was riveted. Having other actors stand in for Ledger worked & Christopher Plummer rocked. in reply to hentosz #
  • @hentosz BRAZIL remains my favorite Gilliam movie, with FISHER KING in 2nd place, but IMAGINARIUM is primo Gilliam. in reply to hentosz #
  • @sotsogm Confession: I only saw SEED OF CHUCKY b/c Nicholas Rowe has a tiny part. It IS a fun movie, though. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @redroomsalon Where is that? in reply to redroomsalon #
  • @Kate_Baker Yay! in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @sotsogm Whereas Windows is like a man: makes no logical sense whatsoever. :p in reply to sotsogm #
  • RT @abc7: Photos released of men wanted in brutal stabbing on MTA bus in Glendale http://bit.ly/8WHGKv (Scary – I know this corner well.)-CE #
  • @sotsogm Not enough characters to include that. Yes, I know illogical women (waves @ self), but the most illogical people I know are men. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @sotsogm I am heartbroken for you that you must make such journey. #
  • Swear I'm going to rip out someone's vocal chords.Woman has world's most annoying voice/laugh & she's fucking loud.And she sits behind me. #
  • She's a regular bus rider, but she's not always on bus I'm on, but there's always a gaggle of women she knows, which means I always flinch. #
  • @sotsogm I'll be strong. For both of us. in reply to sotsogm #
  • Ah yes. Bless Stephen Lynch & his questionable humor. Always takes the edge off. #
  • @sotsogm Actually, from what I can tell, I think she's Catholic. So maybe I need to be "possessed." Next trip, I'm bringing some pea soup. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @sotsogm BTW, the Stephen Lynch song that saved me from assaulting the woman in question? "Priest." in reply to sotsogm #
  • @sotsogm This morning I had a Soy Earl Grey Latte – what evil spirits would that have driven out? The Spirit of House of Commons Reform? in reply to sotsogm #
  • High winds here today. Sinuses are just having a field day. *sigh* #
  • I know it's a cover, but this may be my favorite Johnny Cash song. The pain is palpable. ā™« http://blip.fm/~i6cx6 #
  • For comparison, here's NIN performing "Hurt" live. Still damned good, but Cash's version just kills me. ā™« http://blip.fm/~i6d0w #
  • @Kate_Baker @sotsogm Only thing I can figure is they hope bobbleheads will appeal to non-gamers/non-comic-readers. "Ooh, they're sooo cute!" #
  • @nerdist Have you tried chai latte at Cafe Muse on Santa Monica Blvd (near Hudson Theater)? Best Chai Latte Ever. (Soy milk = even better.) in reply to nerdist #
  • One of the gifts from one of my bosses which I will shortly be diving into. Yum! #
  • http://twitpic.com/up590 One of the gifts from one of my bosses which I will shortly be diving into. Yum! #
  • Ooh, just had one that tasted like a Violet Crumble covered in dark chocolate. As dark chocolate is the superior chocolate, this pleases me. #
  • @Kate_Baker @pie_r_round I'm ambivalent about this. I understand the anger, but legislators are elected to bring the $ to home districts. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker @pie_r_round Sometimes this is the only way that they can do that. It sucks & I don't say it's right, but I understand it. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker @pie_r_round The tough part is balancing that need w/ what is good for US citizens as a whole.Unfortunately most fail @ balance. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker @pie_r_round Hence egregious pork which has no place in certain bills. Obviously, both sides of the aisle is guilty of this. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker @pie_r_round (Yes, I've thought about this maybe a little too much.) in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker I'm a tax-and-spend liberal, but it galls me that a large % of our current debt goes to inefficiencies & military contractors. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker The budget could be balanced & social services could still be provided if it weren't for… in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker …so many private corporations getting Federal funds AND huge tax cuts. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker So…when are we going to D.C. to fix this thing? in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @pie_r_round @Kate_Baker Some of it will work, some of it won't. Unfortunately, since parts of current bill won't go into effect 'til 2014.. in reply to pie_r_round #
  • @pie_r_round @Kate_Baker …we won't really know what works & what doesn't for at least 6-8 years. in reply to pie_r_round #
  • @Kate_Baker Wait, compromise? Uh, you wanna be first on the ticket? I'm not so good w/ compromise. Also, Baker comes first in the alphabet. in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker But I'm totally on board with the rest – inter-party platform reform NOW! in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • @Kate_Baker Yay! in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • Dear Twitter followers: another reminder that, if you're a fundamentalist of any religion, you might not want to follow me. Fair warning. #
  • @pie_r_round Well, Moral Oral is a different matter. in reply to pie_r_round #
  • *sigh* The loud, annoying-voiced woman from this morning is back, this time sitting in front of me. I need my Stephen Lynch. #
  • I guess since I hadn't seen her for awhile, the universe decided I needed a double dose today. #
  • Ooh! "Symphony of Science" is playing, featuring Carl Sagan! This rocks. Might even keep me from hitting this obnoxious woman over the head. #
  • Hitting replay on "Symphony of Science." It makes me happy. #
  • @Stonekettle I know I should invest in a pair, but her voice is so loud & cutting that even Bose might not help. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @Stonekettle Also, I don't like to block out all noise when out and about. It makes me nervous. She moved, so it's not quite as bad now. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @CarolElaine Ah. Got it. in reply to CarolElaine #
  • @Stonekettle Funny thing is, she's probably a nice person, but her voice & laugh so grates on my every nerve that I flinch @ sight of her. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @Stonekettle Ah. Got it. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • It's a lovely chilly evening. Perfect hat & scarf weather. #
  • @Stonekettle Thank you for reminding me to keep the "Bah! Humbug!" alive during this holiday season. You're a true friend. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • RT @harveymilk: Brilliant: The neuroscience of screwing up: http://bit.ly/5m0ZA9 via @onekind . #
  • On MSNBC I like Keith Olbermann & Rachel Maddow, but I often have to yell at Chris Matthews to shut the fuck up. #
  • I mean, I agree w/ him on more than one occasion & tend to loathe the GOP interviewees, but let them talk & dig their own holes, Matthews. #
  • @Kayar Here's hoping! *crosses fingers* in reply to Kayar #
  • @Kayar Good luck! I hope you get it! in reply to Kayar #
  • @Stonekettle Noooo! Board up the windows! Hole up in the nearest mall! Lock the– Wait, I have a myTouch. Never mind. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @kymmz I hope she's going to be okay. I've got her in my thoughts. in reply to kymmz #
  • @kymmz So very glad she's all right! #
  • @kymmz I've been in that emergency room – they definitely take care of you. And I'm glad they took care of your mom! #
  • Forgot to use hair gel this morning. It is going to be an…interesting hair day. #
  • Ah, yes. John Cale's cover of "Hallelujah." G-d, I love this song. #
  • @random_michelle I like big barrettes. But I forgot that too. *sigh* And I'm going to a party tonight. Have to buy a barrette during lunch. in reply to random_michelle #
  • @tmullens Pictures of…? My scary hair? #
  • Got a little Anthony Stewart Head in the house, singing his interesting (and good) cover of "We Can Work It Out." Happy fangirl here. #
  • @random_michelle Whereas I twist my hair in a bun & stick a pencil in it. Soon enough I have more pencils at home than at work. in reply to random_michelle #
  • @random_michelle Also, my preferred hair restraints are actually hard to find right now. I guess they're not fashionable. šŸ˜¦ in reply to random_michelle #
  • Feeling like I'm verging on obnoxious here w/ running report of music morning, but:Stephen Lynch! 2nd time this morning! I love me some SL. #
  • Kate Bush! "Cloudbusting!" Poor Donald Sutherland. #
  • @tmullens in reply to tmullens #
  • @tmullens You be the judge. It's not completely dry yet, so the full horror has not yet revealed itself. http://twitpic.com/utcti in reply to tmullens #
  • @Kate_Baker Yay! Wait, that is a good thing, right? You're not about to get paddled or hit w/ a switch? in reply to Kate_Baker #
  • http://twitpic.com/utcti – Oh, how I love my frizzy, multi-textured, multi-colored hair. At least I remembered to curl my bangs this morning #
  • @jerisisco Good to know. I will keep that in mind. in reply to jerisisco #
  • @sotsogm What's the emoticon for confusion again? 'Cause I has it. (Not up on Pink Floyd history. That class wasn't offered at SMC.) in reply to sotsogm #
  • @tmullens Hee! Maybe I'll wear that tonight! in reply to tmullens #
  • @sotsogm Well, it doesn't take much to confuse me, but thank you for the clarification. I knew nothing about Syd Barrett. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @mariancall Really? Someone ought tell SoCal that – I don't think it got the memo. *looks at 65 degree temps* in reply to mariancall #
  • @pie_r_round A very safe drive to you, should you need to do so. in reply to pie_r_round #
  • @shawnp0wers With some friends/family, that would last maybe a week. in reply to shawnp0wers #
  • @pie_r_round Make sure one of the sled dogs is a plucky underdog (hen) who, despite taunts, leads the team to victory/your destination! in reply to pie_r_round #
  • Free! I am now off work until 1/04/10. Yay! I'm not used to so much time off. Whatever will I do? #
  • Yeah, I love where I work. But it'll be nice to not HAVE to be there for a little while. #
  • @pie_r_round I'm guessing Balto, though I've never seen it. It just seems like every team, whether human or dog, needs a plucky underdog. in reply to pie_r_round #
  • I will, however, be checking work email & voicemail, just in case. There's a big conference in DC 1st week of the year. #
  • A project I'm secretary for has a booth I helped coordinate & there's always a scare I may have to make a call to someone to fix something. #
  • @sotsogm If that doesn't warm the cockles of your heart, I don't know what will. in reply to sotsogm #
  • @kspidel I'm right there with ya! Except, well, from L.A. Today is going to be FUN! :p in reply to kspidel #
  • Braving the Xmas Eve shoppers. Two stops down, way too many to go. Not bad, but it's early yet. #
  • Because I have so many stops & am bussing it, I have an itinerary. Mighty unusual for me, but this is an unusual day. #
  • Hello last night's bad headache. I see you've decided to rejoin me.Don't take this the wrong way, but kindly fuck off.No time for you today. #
  • Up since 6am. Finally stopped to eat. *sigh* Won't help w/ headache (neck related), but will let me take ibuprofen. Also, stomach happy now. #
  • Shopping is done & I am home. Resting for a few minutes before I do a couple of chores, wrap gifts & pack clothes for trip to Fresno. *sigh* #
  • Despite it being Christmas Eve, it wasn't too bad out there today (though I wasn't driving).I guess there was one upside to the bad economy. #
  • @pie_r_round Yea! in reply to pie_r_round #
  • WHITE CHRISTMAS is on the TV machine. Oh, how I love Danny Kaye. #
  • Packing the laptop (& other necessities) & heading to Fresno w/ CFN.Thankful we've decided to get a motel room this year.Love the fam,but… #
  • …last year I think we had TOO much togetherness. As sis's family is devout Christian Republican & CFN & I…aren't, it's best this way. #
  • The perfect early Xmas morning: hanging out w/ CFN, watching "Aqua Teen Hunger Force." Aw yeah. #
  • May all my Tweeps have a very happy winter celebration of your choice! Also, Ookymass!! #
  • On the way home from Fresno. CFN & I are listening to Keith Olbermann podcasts. Hearing the truth is so nice. #
  • I love my family, but I often wonder how such intelligent, compassionate people can be brainwashed by right-wing fundamentalism. #
  • BTW, as corollary to prior warning, far right-wingers may not like my tweets. I like ACLU – they give a shit about rights of ALL Americans. #
  • @kspidel Hate to break it to you, but men are insane, too. šŸ˜‰ in reply to kspidel #
  • CFN mentioned today that he wants to see AVATAR. It looks likely that I'll see it too. Maybe that'll be a way to keep my geek card. #
  • At least until I get around to seeing TERMINATOR.

    What? #

  • @kspidel :p in reply to kspidel #
  • FYI,if you honestly believe that President Obama is a socialist,you are both unobservant & an idiot. You should never leave home unattended. #
  • I wish he were socialist. Obama is a moderate. Somewhat to the left of Ben Nelson, but not by much. #
  • About 30 minutes from home! Yay! #
  • Hello, Magic Mountain! I always love seeing its lights when going home from Fresno. It means home is sooooo close. #
  • @Stonekettle Obama is a Fascist Socialist! Just like Hitler! *headdesk* #
  • @Stonekettle Nope, opposite direction. Santa Clarita. If we had hit Anaheim from Fresno, we would've had to go waaay off course. in reply to Stonekettle #
  • @Stonekettle There are some In & Outs close to my place. Double double animal style? I'll overnight it to you. in reply to Stonekettle #
