Gee, your trash can smells terrific!

(twitpic courtesy of @weightwhat)

I follow around 1800 folks on twitter, give or take a few. And no, I don’t read everyone’s tweets, but I’m somewhat selective about whom I follow. When someone follows me, before I refollow, I look at their profile and read their last few tweets. If it’s someone that makes me smile, makes me think and generally looks like a real person, I will refollow. There’s some great info, some great links and some great conversations on twitter. And then there’s me…

The best of me (or not) on the twitter this week:

@melissa_rae Thanks, Melissa! If only all my minions…er…followers were as agreeable!

RT @melissa_rae I follow @katdish she told me to. And you have to do whatever she says. #ff

@makeadiff21 Well, that doesn’t sound very appetizing at all (in reply to makeadiff21 @katdish The last ones I had tasted like dirty feet. :-P)

@CandySteele I’ve noticed that too, but @billycoffey’s blog is still working!: #nastypimptweet (in reply to CandySteele @buzzbyannies @katdish Actually I think someone broke the internet. Many blogs are funky this morning. AL??? AL???)

@br8kthru Wear that sweater vest proudly, my friend. (in reply to br8kthru @katdish also an officer and a gentleman…)

@br8kthru You’re a gentleman and a scholar, Jason. (in reply to br8kthru @katdish see! If I were going to smell garbage, I’d rather fight it with better smelling garbage. I’m a thinker. :))

@pagan43 I’m against them. Especially if they smell like vanilla. (in reply to pagan43 @katdish How do you feel about scented toilet paper roll holders ?)

@br8kthru @Helenatrandom @pagan43 I would prefer my garbage liners not be scented, but me thinks pine would be a better choice

@Helenatrandom My point exactly. (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish Yeah, I don’t know why they make scented trash can liners. Like my garbage doesn’t already smell all sweet and attractive.)

Dear makers of scented trash can liners, Vanilla scented garbage isn’t really working for me.

@JeanneDamoff And you get 50 points for telling @helenatrandom to speak English

@JeanneDamoff Yay! (in reply to JeanneDamoff @katdish @Nick_theGeek Your remark about stabbing (and envy thereof) made me laugh out loud. 50 points.)

@Nick_theGeek Well, here’s hoping you get the opportunity. (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish I didn’t get to stab anyone … yet.)

@Nick_theGeek Luck-eeee (in reply to Nick_theGeek Anytime I get to stab someone it’s a good day)

In an effort to get my kids used to a new school schedule, I made them go to bed early last night. My daughter is now fully dressed and asleep on the couch.

@JeanneDamoff Ah, well. The non-virtual world requires my full attention sometimes, & I’m happy to oblige.

I love the smell of Amdro fire ant killer in the morning. Die, fire ant scum!

@dannyjbixby Thanks for sharing. (in reply to dannyjbixby Two pounds of steak at dinner = intestinal crisis the next morning…)

@Helenatrandom Oh come on! That song is a classic. “Never trust a big butt & a smile”? Epic.(in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish You expect me to know rap? Really??)

@redclaydiaries Hold the phones, we have a winner: in reply to redclaydiaries @buzzbyannies @katdish @Helenatrandom Did “She’s Poison” get figured out? Isn’t that Bel Biv Devoe?)

@NilsenLife Somehow, that doesn’t surprise me. (in reply to NilsenLife @katdish are you kidding? I always have Van Halen in my head. lol.)

@Helenatrandom Oooo! Do you remember that song called “She’s Poison”? Who sang that? (in reply to Helenatrandom @buzzbyannies That’s Poison.)

@marciw7 The Walmart school supply aisle is a war zone to be avoided if possible. (in reply to marciw7 @katdish wat happened to getting them at wal mart? are they “trying” to be more efficent? hang in there!)

Meanwhile, no line in the “haven’t bought school supplies yet” section. I knew I should have stayed a slacker mom.

Waiting in line for school supplies. That I’ve already paid for. Did I mention that I’ve already paid for them?

I really like it when she agrees with me @amysorrells

@amysorrells RT @katdish: I love the way she does twitter recommendations @MaryDeMuth // yep!!!

I love the way she does twitter recommendations @MaryDeMuth

RT @myapronstrings: Oh my gosh I have a taaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalker. Especially right after school. Still listening…

My daughter bought a dog toy for @buddylovethedog. His name is Justin Beaver.

Answer: Chick-fil-a. Question: Where should you never go at noon in Katy, TX?

Okay. Gotta go interface with the non-virtual world

@amysorrells pot… (in reply to amysorrells @katdish kettle . . .)

I just got a fail whale. Everybody stop talking for a sec…

“Look for more from this talented author in the future” ~ Library Journal (@billycoffey)

RT @shanonpstowe Congrats to @billycoffey — @LibraryJournal calls his new novel “Snow Day” ‘…a sure bet…’

@dukeslee wanted to share this pic I took when our whole church went camping. I looked up and there it was.

@Helenatrandom Don’t confuse the issue, Helen. Inquiring minds wanna know… (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish I don’t think she was talking about Sweet Baby Jesus on this post at all…)

For the love of Sweet Baby Jesus, would someone please tell me who @redclaydiaries is talking about?:

Gus: Shaun, you’ve never read the Bible have you? Shaun: Genesis, Exorcist, Leviathan, Doooo the right thing!

Mr Guster, sorry to interrupt, but there’s a Lt. Crunch here to see you. Shaun: Actually, I’ve been promoted. It’s Captain Crunch. #psych

@CassandraFrear especially the purse my sister gave me for my b-day. You could fit a German Shepherd in there (in reply to CassandraFrear @katdish Good thing, I’m not with you. One of them might go home in your purse.)

@TchrEric I think I read that in the cookbook “101 ways to wok your dog” (in reply to TchrEric @katdish It’s all in the presentation my dear…(and the correct herbs and spices)….)

@TchrEric Of course, I can’t speak for other parts of the world, where the latter may be true.

@TchrEric Apparently, there’s such a thing as dog bakeries. Meaning they make treats for dogs, not out of them. (in reply to TchrEric @katdish Oh Kat…I am sure someone already has…and, the our society is at times, they probably are making good money from the endeavor.)

Happy Birthday @herbiegookins, wherever you are!

@kelybreez You’re eating dog food? Is this a subtle attempt for sympathy seed funding? (in reply to kelybreez @katdish Hey, kat, don’t knock ’em till ya try ’em! They’re better than people Cheetos.)

Life sized Barbie sold separately.

Cheetos. For dogs. (rolls eyes)

Overheard at Petsmart: Someone needs to invent a birthday cake for dogs. Um….no.

@kelybreez I rest my case. (in reply to kelybreez @katdish I say, “Honey, if it’s more than three things, ya gotta make a list.” And still I have to call.)

You can spot married men at the grocery store. They’re the ones staring blankly at the shelves talking on their cell phones.

@RachelleGardner Nice save. (in reply to RachelleGardner Due to a rickety table in @Starbucks, my entire (untasted) grande Americano is all over me & the floor. Laptop unharmed!)

My daughter wants new bedroom furniture. Her request is simple: bed, dresser & desk. Oh, & they need to be lime green.

RT @marni71 I’m Shaun and this is MC Clap Yo Hands…with a z! #Psych

I have just received an email. I am overwhelmingly excited! PCB has been spotted. Pictures have been taken. #Ineedalife

    The store brand garbage bags from Target smell like marshmallow. It’s disconcerting. I always want a s’more when I change the bag.

    So… how does one figure out how to follow all these people, and where do you find the time?

    Vanilla scented garbage liners? Where have I been?

    There are a number of dog bakeries around these parts. The one in Arlington offers more than just treats. All the treats are made with the best organic, all natural, ingredients. I can’t say the treats are particularly taste (yes, I tried one; I was curious) but our Westies like them.

    My favorite: besides the purse large enough for a German shepherd, is #Ineedalife. Actually, you have a life. But I need one, so I could maybe borrow it sometimes?

    Did you read my Friday post about going to the gym for the first time? It’s almost as ridiculous. But not quite. You are the undisputed queen of silly.

    Thanks for wasting my time and making me laugh so I don’t mind it at all. See you on Twitter!

    I don’t really want my trash to smell like vanilla either. Now if they could make it smell like Grape Bubble Yum, then we’d have something there.

    I think we need to open a business together, Kat. Better-smelling garbage is a top priority for so many people. It would be a goldmine. 🙂

    See, Jason S and I were on the same wavelength: to get better smelling garbage, throw away better smelling things.

    LOL, seriously @ the comment about how to recognize married men. My DH nodded & said “it’s true”. So there you have it, straight from the horse’s … err, husband’s mouth.

  10. A Simple Country Girl August 24, 2010 at 10:10 am #

    I don’t understand any of this twitter thang. Should I read from the bottom to the top? Why are you talkin’ trash? And Turk, well, I’d really like to see him sporting some cowboy boots-n-Wranglers and two-stepping to some George Strait…
