Happy New Year Twitter!


This month will mark the one year anniversary of me being on the twitter. I got off to a slow start, but I think you'll all agree I have made up for my lack of tweeting in the early months of 2009...

And now, the best of me (or not) on the twitter:

Why must all Petco stores smell like a hamster cage?

RT @billycoffey: @marni71 Were the pig and hedgehog IN the triple wide? Because then she would be a hillbilly.

Follow @billycoffey for insights into the subtle distinctions between rednecks and hillbillies.

@billycoffey My work here is done... (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Serenity now!)

RT @billycoffey: @marni71 She's already on probation. I think @katdish's resolution for the year is to get canned.//Oh, pish posh!

@buzzbyannies Good point. Perhaps some garbage can bears. (in reply to buzzbyannies @katdish @billycoffey You may have to go slay something Billy. After all this kindler , gentler redneck talk.)

@billycoffey A kinder, gentler redneck ( in reply to billycoffey @katdish @redclaydiaries @buzzbyannies Shiny redneck?)

@buzzbyannies Oh, no Annie. You would never stir the pot. (in reply to buzzbyannies @katdish @billycoffey @redclaydiaries Fancy? Billy, I think that's kind of an insult. Not to stir the pot or anything.)

@PuriChristos Says who? You're not the boss of me. (in reply to PuriChristos Joyful New Year's eve everyone.)

@dannyjbixby The doodlebops are deeply disturbing... (in reply to dannyjbixby @katdish Maybe it's a combo of Whack a mole and doodlebop. If so, awesome!)

@billycoffey @redclaydiaries Carry on...

@redclaydiaries @billycoffey I must cut in here. FANCY Redneck. That's the image we're going for.

This just in: In addition to being an "Internet Tornado", I am also a "Whackadoo". Is that like Whack a Mole? B/C I dig that game.

@buzzbyannies @CandySteele Okay, I should probable be going soon too. (I said should be) I'm not the boss of me.

RT @buzzbyannies: @CandySteele You weren't wearing your coconut bra when you said that were you? (Snort!)

@weightwhat Yes. Silly you.

@CandySteele Speaking of TWSS, where did @weightwhat go?

@prodigaljohn Do you work at 30 Rock? (in reply to prodigaljohn Awesome. The only guy who came in to work today with me is the guy who sings "Glee" songs at the top of his lungs.)

@CandySteele I love a good lollygag. ( in reply to CandySteele @JanetOber nah. RB's working and I'm going to play catch up from Christmas. Then lollygag around all weekend)

@JanetOber I have to obey my muse. She's not feeling ridiculous lately (Except on the twitter).

@heygip Plans? You mean other than enriching lives thru the power of social media? I think I may go shopping...

@mylestones I'm working on the book. I've finished all the page numbers. (Stolen from Steven Wright) (in reply to mylestones @katdish Come to think of it, Sherri's censored you a time or 20 as well. So you've got a best-selling title now. All you need is the book!)

@CandySteele Do you know how terrified I was just to TAKE that picture? We must face our fears. You're welcome. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish I can't believe you tortured dear sweet @billycoffey with that pic - and me too. GAAAAA!)

@billycoffey Oh, you wish... (in reply to billycoffey RT @katdish: To @billycoffey you're welcome. http://twitpic.com/vxm5o // You're dead to me.)

@HerbieGookins herbie!

One more from the bookstore. Seriously? It's not rocket science people! http://twitpic.com/vyp3i


@mylestones Surprisingly enough, I quite often censor myself. Sad, but True. (in reply to mylestones @llbarkat @katdish so does that imply @katdish is currently "censored"? Hmm...wouldn't have guessed that! ;)

@llbarkat I'm not sure. But thanks for the book idea. I'll start immediately. (in reply to llbarkat @katdish can you get those on Kindle? Does it handle dysfunction and sarcasm? :)

Or this one? http://twitpic.com/vxo0b


Okay, this one? http://twitpic.com/vxnwy


Who says there's no educational books for teens anymore? http://twitpic.com/vxmmh


To @billycoffey you're welcome. http://twitpic.com/vxm5o


@pagan43 why yes. Yes it would. (in reply to pagan43 @katdish Wouldn't that be a kindle light? Lol)

At the mall. Headed to the bookstore. Why? To find a booklight for my kindle.

RT @rachelheldevans: Re-wrote my 2009 Haiku: “Opposite Marriage”/ Hiked the Appalachian Trail/ Got mauled by Tiger.

RT @claritychaos: Walked in to find 6 yo had tied 3yo to bunk bed ladder before 9am. Goooooood morning.

Yay! Tweetdeck

@TchrEric You really get me, don't you? (in reply to TchrEric RT @llbarkat: Because @katdish wants it :) http://bit.ly/4T4z2g)

Is following a pile of newspapers on the list? RT @tremendousnews: The 7 Twitter Sins: Which Ones Have You Committed? http://bit.ly/M9OCH

@muchl8r Ooo! Jake - LOVE the new avatar. Looking very hip and writerly...

@BridgetChumbley I'm a giver...

I'm trying to keep him grounded.

Twitter friends - @billycoffey is precariously close to having as many followers as me. This cannot happen.

All books should be available on Kindle! Why? Because I just got one.

@prodigaljohn - Your book's not available on Kindle? Wuddup with that?

The aforementioned cat which I fed, not felt. http://twitpic.com/vqlnj



OMGoogle! FEED a cat. Not FEEL a cat! Oy vey...

Gotta go drive across town to feel a cat. Yes, I'm a rockstar...

Reading "The War of Art" by Steven Pressfield, and it's KICKING MY BUTT!

@billycoffey I'm not afraid of much, really. Just clowns, mimes and Blue Man Group. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Don't ask the question if you're afraid of the answer.)

@billycoffey Lovely... (in reply to billycoffey @katdish None that are living.)

@billycoffey Any cats in your freezer? (in reply to billycoffey @katdish Beets, bears, Battlestar Galactica.)

@billycoffey And you're totally Dwight. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish I like M&Ms. And you locked your keys in the car? You're totally Kevin.)

But on the up side of things, she left her computer here.

Also? I like m&m's...

@billycoffey Kindle is good, although I can't get to it at the moment. Stuck at my sister's house w/my keys locked in the car.

@billycoffey gets smacked in the head. Next on a very special Hey Look a Chicken: http://bit.ly/6PgDbG

For me, art is the restoration of order. It may discuss all sorts of terrible things, but there must be satisfaction at the end. A little bit of hunger, but also satisfaction. ~ Toni Morrison

RT @muchl8r: christmas music at church after christmas. #OnlybecauseiloveJesus :)

We are the church. http://twitpic.com/vgjfa

I will give you a new heart & put a new spirit in you: I will remove from you your heart of stone & give you a heart of flesh ~ Ez 36:26

Mmmm...grocery store Sushi! http://twitpic.com/vdjmb


@sarahmsalter I don't even have to try to be useless. (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish Thank you, thank you... I'm trying to be useless today, how 'bout you?)

@forthegirls Next thing you'll be saying an 18 month old shouldn't have a cell phone either

@forthegirls You're so old fashioned... (in reply to forthegirls I'm just going on record, sorry if I offend, but I think an 18mo old is too young to have their own iPod Touch)

@redclaydiaries Again. It's what I'm here for. (in reply to redclaydiaries RT @katdish: @redclaydiaries You can write about how much you love my blog. //I can always count on you for creative input)

@redclaydiaries That's what I'm doing.

@redclaydiaries You can write about how much you love my blog. (in reply to redclaydiaries Dinner planned. White beans & ham! Yum. Thinking about Tuesday's blog carnival on LOVE. No idea what I'll write.)

@JanetOber No. I haven't figured out how to text from my kindle. If my dh knew I could twitter from it, I doubt he would have gotten it.

@Helenatrandom Yes to the kindle, sadly not to the peace on earth and good will towards man.

@CandySteele And a happy Put all the crap back in the shed day to you as well.

@CandySteele Well then. It really is boxing day. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish Boxing Day is the day you put the Christmas tree back in the box. Duh)

@Helenatrandom Hello my sweet Helen!

@joannesher Oh, well. I'm all up in that. (in reply to joannesher RT@katdish: What the heck is boxing day?// it's the day after Christmas, set aside to beat up your kids for their selfish attitudes ;)

@PuriChristos But just boxers, or does it encompass wrestlers and cage fighters? (in reply to PuriChristos @katdish it's a day to celebrate professional fighters ... duh)

What the heck is boxing day?

This too. http://twitpic.com/vbsno


Enjoy the view. It's going back in the box very soon. http://twitpic.com/vbsk3



@CandySteele So the whole local celebrity and trusted news anchor gig pales in comparison to a good Ron Burgandy quote on the twitter? (in reply to CandySteele @katdish I will. That was one of his prouder moments. He gloated for an hour.)

@CandySteele Just highlight his contributions on the screen. (in reply to CandySteele @katdish I'll have to point out your twitter update to him - not sure his attention span can take it tho.)

@redclaydiaries You're at the mall already? Your slacker reputation is in serious jeopardy

@CandySteele Ron Burgandy made my twitter update. He has my permission to use that in his professional resume.

RT @PuriChristos: Merry Day after Christmas aka "who's gonna clean up this mess day"

(Exactly@TchrEric It's pretty bad. Boxes and wrapping paper everywhere. I won't subject you to the photos

The morning after: My living room looks like war-torn Beruit.


Say it with me now: Sorry/You're welcome!

I remember seeing Twitter for Dummies at some point (maybe at Target??) and I also remember looking at whoever I was with and rolling my eyes...
Happy New Year!

Maureen said...

What! Not a single #smooch?

Happy New Year!

katdish said...

Maureen - For the record, I had already cut and pasted my twitter update before all the #smooching business started. Perhaps next week...

Billy Coffey said...

Thankfully I didn't need a book to teach me about Twitter. I just had a snarky Texan.
