Catching Up

I have a lot of questions in my inbox, so I'll try to catch up with some of those now:

Do you have a Twitter?

No, I do not. In fact, I can not even figure out what a Twitter is. I always see this amongst all the hot bloggers and the pro blogger sites and the techie stuff. I have read articles, gone to the site, asked people...and I still cannot figure out what this is or why I need it.

To the best of my knowledge, it is like a mobile blogging thingy, in which I could update you all on my whereabouts at all times of the day or night, regardless of location. Somehow.

What I'm really stumped about, is how this would be interesting.

Now even I am fascinated at some of the stuff you all are entertained by, but for the life of me I can't figure this one out. Maybe it's for people with interesting lives? Because I'm really thinking you all don't need to know when I'm getting up to go pee or whatever.

Frankly, it also sounds like something that could make our relationship even more unhealthy than it already is.

Also, how is this even done? With my cell phone? I hate my freaking cell phone. One of you would have to come over here and figure out that "fill in the blank" shit it tries to do during my futile attempts at text messaging. Or just get me a new phone. That would be better.

I just don't know about this whole Twitter business. Although, I do like the idea of being attached at the hip with you all, like one giant Siamese twin.

I wrote about something on my blog today that I would like your input on. My 20 month old daughter is obsessed with putting the dog's and cat's food into their water dishes. Have you ever had this problem with lk? What should I do about the little sneak? Any advise would be appreciated.

I do have a solution, but unfortunately I think it is probably pet abuse. This is actually something I've been meaning to ask you all about, for ohhhh, about 8 months now.

What I do is hide the animals' water bowl in my bathroom, forcing them to basically ask permission to get through two different doors in order to have a drink.

I know, that's wrong of me.

I don't know what else to do though, little kid is a maniac and VERY pet-involved. I'm open to other suggestions.

Dear Ashley & Big Kid,

I need both of you for this one.

What should I do with a little boy that deleted his Moms blog?

It's been a week and I haven't gotten over it yet.

The Mr. claims it's my fault for leaving Blogger dashboard up while I used the bathroom.

So who needs the punishment here? Mom making a potty break or the 3yo that was told not to touch the keyboard?


This one has been waiting for an answer for a while. I don't even want to think about what I would do. In my opinion, an ass beating is a MUST in this situation and I'm thinking you probably have to give him up for adoption. I know that's hard to hear, but how can you even look at this kid ever again?

Big Kid said that you should probably take away his computah pwivwidges. He said this very solemnly too, so he understands the magnitude of the situation, and the fact that the punishment must be SEVERE.


I have a question for you to go along with my praise for the Closet. How do you get the page viewer or whatever it is that tells you how many unique views and so forth?

Thank you for your nice, long comment. I'm only going to post the question part here in the interest of time, but I did appreciate it and have even seen you around since (you read my whole blog!! Awesome!).

I use Statcounter and I love it. I love to see the Google Keyword stuff and the Recent Came From stuff. It only lets me have the last 500 page views for free, which doesn't do much in the grand scheme of things once you've got lots of traffic, but it works for my cheap ass.

Also several of you have asked where I get the interesting links from. That's hard to answer. Sometimes from my crazy, very crowded "Favorites" list, sometimes from babycenter, sometimes from social sites like Digg or Reddit, sometimes from the news, sometimes they are links from other websites I like to check or articles I've read, sometimes a friend contributes something...they come from all over.

The internetz is pretty amazing.

Edited to add: If you asked a question and it wasn't answered, I'm not ignoring you, I have forgotten about you. Take no offense, just ask again. If I forget again, I'm probably ignoring you.

I remember reading a blog about you attempting to T9 on your cell phone... at that time, I had no idea either... I finally got the courage to ask my step daughter... and believe it or not, she taught me without an attitude...

If you wanted to say, "Hey, call me!" You would type "4391*02255063*1**

the * may be different, on my phone its * but on Hubby's its #. What the * or # does is scroll between symbols, and or words.

For instance if you typed "me" (63) you hit the * to switch between the words "of" and "me" because both of those words can be spelled with 63.

Also, on my phone 0 is a space, but on Hubby's its the *.

Mess around with it, email if you need more help.

I see a crap ass flower picture in your future Christmas presents from mom.


Melodie said...

Thanks for answering my question. I think I may just have to install a doggie door in my laundry room door so that the animals can get to their food and water and Katie can't. Hopefully, she won't figure out that she's small enough to crawl through, too!

That whole having to get up off the couch to open two doors so my animals can get a drink is just WAY to much work for me. Then again, opening two doors could count as my two things for the day... But then the animals would only get to drink once a day that way.

Unknown said...

Yeah, that's why I said it was animal abuse. Because they only get to drink once or twice a day. Oh well, he'll grow out of it in a few years.

Still lost on txt messaging, don't even know if I want to, but thank you for trying. My phone guesses the word, is that what you're talking about? I know it can be made to stop but I don't know how and don't care enough. ;-)

Yeah, I dont know what the hell a twitter is either.
