• I Have No Intention of Twittering .. Thank-You Very Much.

    March 19th, 2007HARTHmmmm Things, Quickies

    Milton Waddams: [talking on the phone] And I said, I don’t care if they lay me off either, because I told, I told Bill that if they move my desk one more time, then, then I’m, I’m quitting, I’m going to quit. And, and I told Don too, because they’ve moved my desk four times already this year, and I used to be over by the window, and I could see the squirrels, and they were married, but then, they switched from the Swingline to the Boston stapler, but I kept my Swingline stapler because it didn’t bind up as much, and I kept the staples for the Swingline stapler and it’s not okay because if they take my stapler then I’ll set the building on fire…

    (later on ..)

    Bill Lumbergh: Milt, we’re gonna need to go ahead and move you downstairs into storage B. We have some new people coming in, and we need all the space we can get. So if you could just go ahead and pack up your stuff and move it down there, that would be terrific, OK?
    Milton Waddams: Excuse me, I believe you have my stapler…

    I almost made it ..

    I promised myself I wouldn’t even go to the “twitter” site or read anybody’s blog who has a twitter widget in the sidebar. Why? It’s just me .. let me explain.

    * I have never seen the movie E.T.
    * I did not see the original Star Wars (episode 4) until the weekend before Episode 1 was released.

    Why? Because they were just too popular, and too many people were talking about it and that pissed me off. No, I did NOT miss anything, as I do not miss anything that I do not partake or participate in. For instance, if I start watching Survivor All-Stars but missed last week’s episode, then I would say . YES .. I missed Survivor that thursday. However, I did not start to watch Survivor Africa so, I can safely say that I never missed anything that season.

    Anyway .. it’s been in my Bloglines, in my daily reads, in my weekly reads .. and everywhere, and everybody keeps mentioning Twitter this and Twitter that .. so I looked at it Sunday.

    YEP .. IT’s everything that I figured it would be – another waste of time. “I’m going to the parkade to start my car now” … “I’m hungry and going for lunch” … “I have to pick up my laundry” … OMFG .. are you kidding me? Isn’t that what MYSPACE was all about in 2003 and 2004? Except, instead of teenage kids it’s like .. A-Lister bloggers now? Or, for people who just don’t want to blog but, want to blog. *shrugs*

    Not to put down people who are actually USING Twitter for a benefit to their productivity – good for you actually! – but those who are just following the masses and getting thrills watching the comments of bloggers who (may) think they are better than you or I .. or, indeed ARE better than you or I (I’m not ashamed to admit that :D) … here’s something funny I saw today in my bloglines … and followed the link.

    Click to expand the image .. but in case you can’t read that .. it says… notice these: TWITs(?)

    * “Crushed by twitter bill… Ugh. Be careful people!
    * “oh sh@#$%@#$%t… jsut checked my tmobile bill: 2,367 extra messages… $236.70 in extra charges!!! does tmobile have unlimited?!?!?!?!

    And, if that doesn’t scare you .. I guess you can just go to TWITTER and read people’s thoughts.

    I still say – I just don’t get it. Don’t want it. Sorry. Please leave your Twitters to your Twitter Widgets and not my Bloglines. Thank-You.
