This week @HelenatRandom came up with the fabulous idea of Twitter Caroling, which frankly took about two or three emails for me to grasp what the heck she was talking about -- I'm sort of dumb sometimes. Anyhoo, it was a great way to get into the Christmas spirit. Helen is like our random, cheery cruise director on the twitter. I even got serenaded by the beautiful, classic Christmas favorite, "Grandma got run over by a reindeer." Appropriate, don't you think?
Got my Christmas lights and yard art up, too. Overall a very productive week on and off the twitter.
So, here's the best of me (or not) on the twitter:
@sarahmsalter That's why I use symbols like @$$ (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish I try to keep it rated-PG.)
@sarahmsalter Or a wise something... (in reply to sarahmsalter @billycoffey A search party to find baby Jesus... Well, that must make you a wise man. Or at least a wise guy.)
Yard art envy http://twitpic.com/rzydo
@JodyHedlund Yeah, hold out as long as you can. When my kids gave up naps I was like, "Well NOW when am I supposed to take a shower?"
@JodyHedlund Wait...your 4 year old still takes naps? Lucky!
@redclaydiaries Well, after the baby Jesus at McDonalds comment, I wouldn't be so sure.
@redclaydiaries Is there lightning in the greater Georgia area? Think I might stay inside if I were you...
@redclaydiaries Dang, you beat me to the breaking wind comment...
@PuriChristos Uh, huh...got my link didn't I? (in reply to PuriChristos For lazy people like @katdish you can get to NickGeek.com using this short url http://is.gd/5asvB)
@PuriChristos You should provide a link.
@kenworley It's sort of an ongoing conversation, Ken (in reply to kenworley @katdish are you talking to your-self again.)
Yesh! 2 loads away from completing the laundry! What's that?...Is everything folded and put away?...Oh, shut up.
@indymavs Good for you! I just pulled 4 paper towels, a gum wrapper & a pen out of one load of jeans. (in reply to indymavs @katdish mine are typically trash-free)
Oh, okay...So @prodigaljohn gets Little Drummer Boy, @stacyasmallSFL get Emmanuel, and I get Grandma got run over by a Reindeer? Nice...
@br8kthru You're like a weird combination of Michael Scott and Joey from "Friends".
Laundry Day Survey: Do all menfolk use their pockets as tiny trash receptacles, or is it just my household?
@bryanallain Today? Oh, enriching lives thru the power of social media and laundry. (in reply to bryanallain @katdish good morning to you as well. what's on tap for today?)
@stacyasmallSFL In ancient times did'st give the LawIn cloud, & majesty and awe. Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel Shall come to thee, O Israel.
Okay, my friends. I gotta get some sleep! Goodnight all! And goodnight @HerbieGookins, wherever you are!
@weightwhat Dang! I was trying to beat you to the TWSS!
@sarahmsalter You're gonna hook up with Mr. Linky in the morning? And.....
RT @human3rror: Wow. Fire in the apple store. Kicked out by fire marshals. //WHAT DID YOU DO???
RT @weightwhat: Me thinks that @billycoffey doth protest too much. // I concur...
RT @billycoffey: Came home to find my wife playing the Kenny G Christmas CD. I suddenly hate this time of year
@weightwhat Sweat pants. (in reply to weightwhat I'm going to Sonic for the 1st time. Any recommendations?)
@HeatherSunseri Sorry. @helenatrandom was having TWS - twitter withdrawl syndrome. Not to be confused with TWSS.
This is a test.
@TAnneAdams Writers always see the glass half empty, huh? With a chip and a lipstick stain on the side.
RT @TAnneAdams: SO strange not have a word count hanging over your head. Although, I'm sure edits will find a fresh way to stress me out.
RT @kelli1227: Black Friday observation: wearing Crocs and a Snuggie at Macys after lunch is not cool. Really.
My weaknesses? Well, I oversleep and call in sick a lot. #NotToSayOnJobInterview
RT @InkPanther: I love starting fires. #NotToSayOnJobInterview
RT @marni71: Seriously! Who let's Bruce Springsteen record Christmas music? It sounds like he's having a colonoscopy when he sings...
RT @marni71: @katdish So now you're a lunch menu pharisee as well? // No, I just don't eat fish out of a can.
RT @marni71: @Helenatrandom I know! Spray cheese does sound good. Especially with @pagan43's potted meat and saltines. //VURP!
OMGoogle, what a geek: RT @PuriChristos: at 12:42 and 10 seconds my binary clock makes a really cool arrow pointing up.
@redclaydiaries Oh, don't worry. It's just my imaginary friend Steph trying to steal our yard art.( in reply to redclaydiaries RT @katdish: @redclaydiaries It would make baby Jesus happy. http://twitpic.com/rl778 //Mommy, what's that scary shadow on my curtains?)
And of course sweet baby Jesus. http://twitpic.com/rixat

Exhibit A http://twitpic.com/rix1t
@marni71 I'm katdish. That's what I do... (in reply to marni71 @sarahmsalter I think it counts! Don't ask @katdish since she's being a Christmas decoration pharisee)
@marni71 Well don't hurt yourself going all out. (in reply to marni71 @katdish @redclaydiaries we're gonna put a green light bulb in the porch light and red ones in the landscape lights and calling it a day.)
@redclaydiaries Oh, you're just getting back from vacation. I'll sit in judgment of you mid-week.
@redclaydiaries Hey there Steph! Did you hear I already have my Christmas lights up?
@marni71 Shaddup... (in reply to marni71 @katdish Today is Monday. Did your kids miss school? Nice parenting...)
@marni71 I'm okay now. Last night I thought today was Monday. Kinda freaked me out.
Hello Twitter! Miss me? I've been putting up my Christmas lights and yard art so that I can sit in judgment of those of you who haven't.
My daughter gives my sister a Thanksgiving makeover. I am grateful my sister is not on the Twitter.
Clearly, the cows are terrified. http://twitpic.com/rc5zn
@JanetOber 6 months ago if you googled "katdish" I didn't show up for a few pages. Shameless self promotion is a rare and beautiful thing.
If you google "katdish" you will find a web designer by the same name. A fact that @peterpollock no doubt finds hilarious.
And again, sorry/you're welcome!
