For Ten Things Tuesday, I thought I’d give y’all some more important information. You know, ’cause I like you to leave this blog feeling like you got a little chuckle out of it and that you’re a little smarter for having come here.
And so you can say you come here to learn something. It’s kind of like when you say you read Playboy for the articles. Not that you do that.
Ten Things I Learned This Past Week
1. I can wear my underwear inside out for half the day before I notice. As @CardsfanClaytweeted: ‘As long as they weren’t on the outside it’s fine.’ Good point.
2. Installing a right-click/copy prevention plugin is upsetting to some of my readers. I had no idea – I swear! I’ve turned off the right-click thingy. The text that used to pop up was my attempt at humor, I don’t actually check anyone’s IP address or send them to the blog police. And NO, I seriously don’t think my stuff is worth stealing, but the thieves aren’t picky, apparently. I saw some of their sites – and while they did steal some top-notch stuff, they also stole pure crap, like what you read here. Anyway, that’s probably why everyone’s stopped commenting on my site anymore. I’m sure it’s not my writing. But, wait! There’s more…
Not LA, but I was chilly in this picture. This is probably what I look like right now since the weather in LA is cold.
Hello My Dear Kernutties from sunny cloudy Los Angeles!
Since I’m #NotAtBlogHer (and totally jealous of all the blogalicious gals who went), I’m doing this. Yay for you! I’m hoping to do live tweets from my trip to LA this weekend. But my phone isn’t a “smart phone”, it’s only of average intelligence. If it doesn’t work, you won’t see any tweets below. They may instead be above. Crap, I just realized that.
Or maybe you don’t see any tweets because I was kidnapped by a hot knight/swarthy pirate/romantic gentleman. (Hey, one can dream. Don’t judge.) But per chance I am really kidnapped, use this picture on the missing poster, ok? You will make a missing poster for me, right? Right? Hello?
(UPDATED 8/9/10: My tweets did not come through. In the words of Wicked Shawn, le sigh. I will recreate the awesome tweets here tonight.)
4:41:33 AM: Up at 0-dark-hundred to drive an hour to meet the charter bus to LA. I hope this live blogging is working. #NotatBlogHer
7:35:33 AM: ok it appears live blogging on kernut.com is not working right for this noob… None of my AWESOME tweets came thru. (THIS is the only tweet, besides the opening/title that posted to my blog. WTF??)
8:27:33 AM: One the bus to LA with crazy people. (pic hereTwitpic didn’t work either probably because I’m a clueless noob. It’s probably good I didn’t go to BlogHer – I don’t think they would have let me in.)
12:19:33 PM: This is the trophy we fight for in the softball game. (pic here) (The reason for this trip isn’t really the fellowship, the camaraderie, or the two big groups getting together twice a year. It’s actually all about this trophy. Don’t let anyone tell you different.)
3:45:33 PM: Self Realization Fellowship in Pacific Palisades (pic here) (This place is beautiful! If you’re ever in the area, check it out.)
4:58:33 PM: Venice Beach… loud, bad music, many cool knick knacks, and a lot of interesting peeps. (pic here, mostly of my thumb)
10:41:33 AM: Sorry, but Monterey lost the ball game. With so many of our star players out it was an easy win for Santa Monica. We’ll get the trophy back in December! (Yes, you’re right if you’re thinking this is too long for a tweet. By this time I had given up on the Twitter and posted this as a Facebook status.)
So there you have it, folks. My first foray into Live Blogging, unlike Absence of Alternatives(click for example of how it’s supposed to go, not her first), crashed and burned. I couldn’t even get Twitpic to post my pictures. I still don’t know why neither one worked. Maybe it’s because my cell phone is only semi-intelligent (as opposed to being a ‘smart’ phone)?? I can text my tweets to Twitter and FB and it will post them. I had signed up for Twitpic, but this was my first attempt at sending pics to it from my phone.
I will try again some day because Twitter is sucking me in (maybe from Concours d’Elegance this weekend??). I can’t stop it, so I’m just going with it. *fingers crossed*
