Hey! Remember a few weeks ago when I promised these updates would be much shorter? Well, I lied. But not on purpose. Seems I was extra chatty this week for some reason. Sorry/you’re welcome.
The best of me (or not) on the twitter this week:
RT @noveldoctor: Before reading a revision note from your editor, check the medicine cabinet for Xanax. If empty, drink heavily
@lainiegallagher You know me so well… (in reply to lainiegallagher Sounds about right.)
@lainiegallagher I do what I can. Or what I feel like doing. One of those… (in reply to lainiegallagher Yes! Good one. You’re such a great writer and cheerleader of writers.)
@arlenesg Thanks Arlene. Nice to have you in my stream as well. Even tho typing that makes me giggle.
@SassafrasHill They are sparkly, but also shiny. Because sparkles shine, right? Also? Me too. Book 4 is on my nightstand. (in reply to SassafrasHill @katdish – Sparkly, Kathy. Get it right. Hehehe 🙂 Sparkly & beeyootiful.The books were actually pretty good.Haven’t read the last one tho.)
Is the new Twilight movie coming out today? I am so out of the shiny vampire loop.
@melissa_rae We had pizza tonite too. But in interest of stimulating the local economy, we had it delivered (in reply to melissa_rae We’re making homemade pizza, with from scratch dough, for dinner tonight. Then rootbeer floats for dessert! Mmm!)
As to my earlier tweet about watching The Karate Kid (original) today–I have forgotten how much truly horrible music there was in the 80s
I have no idea where/how/why followers find me, but dang – there are some funny people out there. @plfrederick for example.
@HeatherSunseri Me too. I hate socks.(in reply to HeatherSunseri @katdish Hehehe You have the same suntan I have. Love flip flops!)
@SandraHeskaKing Oh, it’s okay. You have a great personality. Snort! (in reply to SandraHeskaKing @katdish Double waahhh! I have no tan. Bunions and no tan.)
@SandraHeskaKing Sorry. Didn’t mean to bring you pain. If it’s any consolation, I have an unsightly flip flop tan (in reply to SandraHeskaKing @katdish Waahhh! Sniff.)
@SandraHeskaKing What? I don’t have bunions. What’s a bunion? (in reply to SandraHeskaKing @katdish Scraped and painted sounds lovely! But flip flops show off bunions)
@gyoung9751 Okay. But I’m keeping it handy just in case. I would never lay down the hammer on you, btw. (in reply to gyoung9751 @katdish No! Not the unfollow hammer!)
@MichaelDPerkins Sandwiches and gratuitous violence? 2 of my favorite things!(in reply to MichaelDPerkins RT @katdish: @gyoung9751 Control of what? Do I need go samurai on some people? //I specialize in karate chop sandwiches)
@gyoung9751 Uh oh. Should I lay down the unfollow hammer (in reply to gyoung9751 @katdish Sarah and Duane have been getting out of hand.)
Going to get my feet scraped and painted. It’s flip flop season
@gyoung9751 Control of what? Do I need go samurai on some people? (in reply to gyoung9751 @sarahmsalter You’re right, Sarah. I’d vote to get @katdish to keep things under control.)
Favorite deleted spam comment of the day: Prozac for Cats
@mamastephf Either that or beats the crap out of them when mom’s not looking. (in reply to mamastephf @katdish Ahhh, no wonder you blog so well. The babies are fun & creative, right, in larger families? Everyone applauds them from birth? :))
@adeason123 Well, there are plenty of those folks to go around. (in reply to adeason123 @katdish I personally prefer fake cardboard people… That way I know to NOT expect much from them!!!)
@jamieworley That’s always a bonus.(in reply to jamieworley @katdish It’s nice to have real people. I like when they are fully clothed, too.)
I love checking my new followers to find most of them are real people! Thank you, real people!
@buzzbyannies Or some dynamite. (in reply to buzzbyannies @Katdish Only thing better is fishing with a shotgun.)
@buzzbyannies Rednecks + venomous snakes = quality television! (in reply to buzzbyannies Billy the Exterminator. #digthatshow)
@tracyfarr I meant it as a compliment. (in reply to tracyfarr Oh, no. I’ve turned into a “cranky ho” (as one nice lady recently called me). For shame, for shame, for shame!)
@TheBlueMacaw It better be, or heads are gonna roll! (Okay, really nothing I can do about it. But I feel empowered now.)
@TheBlueMacaw But I’ve got bloggy business I conduct over gmail. They better get it fixed or I’m burning Scranton to the ground! #theoffice
@sarahmsalter @marni71 I’m 5′ 6″ tall. But I towered over @redclaydiaries last year b/c of strategic footwear
@marni71 @sarahmsalter Wait…Sarah, how tall are you? Am I going to look really tall standing next to y’all? Because that would be awesome
@billycoffey Prepare yourself for an expletive-laced DM mister! (in reply to billycoffey @katdish What was that, city slicker?)
@NEgraceful Well, I personally would never say that. I say toe-ma-tas. (in reply to NEgraceful @sarahmsalter @katdish So you would say, “Go pick some may-tuhs for dinner?”)
@marni71 It’s hard to tell. She talks so fast I usually only get about every 3rd word or so. @gabbysherri (in reply to marni71 @katdish Does @gabbysherri mispronouce words or does she only jack them up when she types them?)
@gabbysherri NORTHERN! Bite your tongue! Houston is such a melting pot, everyone is from somewhere else. (in reply to gabbysherri @katdish -not really. Not a Texan accent, anyway. In fact, more Northern than Southern. What’s up with that?)
@sarahmsalter mater plants? Seriously? I can go along with ta-mater plants, but mater plants? Use your words, Sarah. (in reply to sarahmsalter @billycoffey I got a mater plant taller than me now & it’s about to fall over. I got out there w/ baccer sticks & string last night. #nohelp)
@billycoffey Hmph! (in reply to billycoffey @katdish What’d you say, city slicker?)
@gabbysherri Okay, we’ve talked on the phone. Do you think I have an accent?
@marni71 She’s a fast talker…. (in reply to marni71 @katdish Oh,and that time I was hopped up on Nyquil and accidentally drunk dialed @gabbysherri. She didn’t sound at all like a smurf.)
@billycoffey Oh, shut up. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish No. You’re citified all the way. Urban living has destroyed your country roots.)
@marni71 I actually don’t think I have much of an accent. What do you think @billycoffey?
@billycoffey More Frasier than Gomer for sure, but that’s a pretty accurate statement. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish @marni71 @sarahmsalter I have the sort of voice that’s a cross between Gomer Pyle and Frasier Crane.)
@marni71 We’ve never talked on the phone. Doesn’t @helenatrandom sound exactly like you thought she would?
@marni71 Just go to my blog and rant incessantly. I’m there for you, Marns. (in reply to marni71 And now Youversion hates me too. I’m taking my ball and going home…)
HMPH! I just got a DM saying I was high maintenance. I’m not high maintenance, I’m just lazy.
I love @amysorrells , even if her blog posts are always too long to RT.
I had 2 folks follow/unfollow/follow/unfollow me yesterday. If you use an auto-follow service, please note that this is highly annoying.
Garlic butter? RT @HeatherSunseri: Came home from vacation to 100s of snails in fishtank. My DD’s snails mated. Oops. Open to suggestions.
So proud of my kids! Not one argument today! Oh, wait…my son’s away at camp. Nevermind
I just submitted a guest post to a blog geared to writers. I’m giving advice. Brace yourselves.
@KathleenOverby Good morning. We’ve got plenty here. Would you like some suffocating humidity, too? (in reply to KathleenOverby Good morning @katdish. RT Thx 🙂 It is STILL raining. I’m done. Tapping out. Send sun.)
@JeanneDamoff The writing is stellar, but the cowboy hat puts him over the top I think. in reply to JeanneDamoff @katdish Seriously. What is it about some dude in a cowboy hat? (Who just happens to write stories that wring your heart out. But still.)
@JeanneDamoff “Mowing the grass crack”. Snort! (in reply to JeanneDamoff @katdish Hey, congrats on surpassing @billycoffey in followers. And 50 points for the “mowing the grass” crack.)
@JeanneDamoff Exactly (in reply to JeanneDamoff @katdish Wait . . . you’re putting off procrastinating? So, you’ll procrastinate tomorrow then?)
@JeanneDamoff I’m good. I’m putting off procrastinating going to the store.
@SBeeCreations Really? So if I tweeted say, Baby Daddy is a DJ I met at a wedding, I’d be golden? (in reply to SBeeCreations @katdish you need to tweet about weddings, babies, and DJs if you are looking for the quick follow)
You too, @RobinMArnold! Snort!
You rock, @boomerarnold! Thank you!
But I’m going to enjoy my 15 minutes of fame.
YESH! I have surpassed @billycoffey in followers! Of course, he’ll tweet something about mowing the grass & get 100 more followers.
@salamicat My first name is Kathy, my maiden name is Dishman. Hence, katdish
@MarketerMikeE Wait…you scrapbooked? Not sure seeing the A-Team redeems your man card. You should probably cut the head off a snake. (in reply to MarketerMikeE @SeeJaneSell yes lost man card after scrapbooking. Then got it back after watching A-Team.)
@salamicat My twitter name? You mean katdish? That’s not just my twitter name. It’s been my nickname forever (in reply to salamicat @katdish Did you know that the entire reason I followed you originally is because of your twitter name? I love it)
Oooo! We’re tied!
@shrinkingcamel Why thank you, Brad. I would follow myself, but tweetdeck won’t let me. (in reply to shrinkingcamel @katdish I would follow you twice, if that were allowed…)
@RobinMArnold I need 2 more followers to pass @billycoffey. Maybe I should tweet tuna casserole (in reply to RobinMArnold @katdish I imagine we’ll both get them. Last night I tweeted my tuna casserole, now I have folks who know to cook better following.)
@KathleenOverby Sorry/you’re welcome. (in reply to KathleenOverby @katdish love the way your last two posts indulge my bi-polar inclinations. Angels had me tearing up, recap had me laughing. iScared)
And I just had a nekkid person send me a friendship request on facebook. That’s never happened before.
Gotta love the clever spam commenters: Love your writing. Keep up the good work. – Mr. Viagra
