So, who is the boss of me anyway?

Oh, lots of twitpics, much of the country had incredible amounts of snow while I tried to show solidarity by wearing socks and long sleeved shirts, @billycoffey continues to sass me, @Brian_Russell continues to obess over his Analytics, and @Nick_theGeek and I actually have a serious conversation on the twitter. But don't worry, it didn't last long. And if you're new here, the tweets will make more sense if you start from the bottom and read up. But not much more sense...

Ready? Pack a lunch...

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

Beer for dogs...because you have way too much disposable income. http://twitpic.com/12tqrd


Or...you could just shut your pie hole. http://twitpic.com/12tkrj


Pull-ease!!! http://twitpic.com/12thdy


Oh... http://twitpic.com/12th91


RT @Nick_theGeek: #FF @katdish almost as amazing as the hype //almost?

Okay...going to take some undercover pics at an overpriced store dedicated to stuff you should never buy your dog...

@Nick_theGeek yes. (in reply to Nick_theGeek Post title should be "leading an ass to water" according to @katdish. do you agree? http://goo.gl/fb/4OQP)

Oh, comments section of HLAC, you complete me

@buzzbyannies your lack of compassion hurts me deeply.. (in reply to buzzbyannies @katdish Whatev... Although I think you've gotten more snow than us this year.)

Brrr. Way too cold. http://twitpic.com/12rr45


Okay. I need to go write something longer than 140 characters.

Good News! I made blackened chicken for dinner. Bad News: I wasn't trying to make blackened chicken.

My daughter wants me to watch a Jonas Brothers movie with her. It's like she doesn't even know me...

RT @stretchmarkmama: I'm not saying I have PMS or anything, BUT WHERE IS MY SHOTGUN?!

RT @detroitsteve: watching Saw 6 while eating an Arby roast beef sandwich....probably not my best idea of the day

RT @Helenatrandom: @br8kthru Okay. I'd be pretty mad at a toilet that called me sir. //That's just funny in any context.

@llbarkat Oh, yeah...Elliot. More like Mad Libs. (in reply to llbarkat @katdish awesome... and that from a woman who said she doesn't "get" poetry. (See? You were reading too much T.S. Eliot. :)

@noveldoctor Sigh...no. (in reply to noveldoctor @katdish @arestlessheart "Do not come lightly to the page." / Can I use this as an excuse to eat fried foods and avoid exercise?)

@arestlessheart "Do not come lightly to the page." Stephen King (in reply to arestlessheart @katdish thanks for the RT - this post was the hardest in this series for me to write...)

@Brian_Russell You should raise your standards.

@Brian_Russell That's kinda sad, really. (in reply to Brian_Russell @katdish As odd as you may find it, yes, you're in that group.)

@Brian_Russell You're welcome. (in reply to Brian_Russell It's fun to be replied to by famous people.)

@RobinMArnold I think using the term "the twitter" avails more opportunities for a TWSS moment. Win - win. (in reply to RobinMArnold @katdish I have always wondered about the proper use of Twitter, or THE Twitter?)

@weightwhat Metaphorically, apparently. (in reply to weightwhat @Helenatrandom How, exactly, do the Amish play cards?)

@Helenatrandom He must have his thesaurus out again. (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish Perhaps. It's some sort of game he called "Metaphorical".)

Oh, Sweet Fancy Moses! >RT @billycoffey: @HeatheroftheEO I'm not gimp, I just have so much testosterone that it blew out my shoulder.

@Helenatrandom Amish cards? Now that's manly.... (in reply to Helenatrandom @katdish Maybe you and @billycoffey can settle this by playing Amish cards like he suggested...)

@billycoffey You keep forgetting I have kinfolk in your neck of the woods. Lots of them. (in reply to billycoffey @RobinMArnold You know, @katdish can talk pretty tough from fifteen hundred miles away.)

@billycoffey What to the ever...(in reply to billycoffey @katdish It has. Dang it, shunning starting...now.)

@billycoffey Oh yeah, cuz that's worked so well for you in the past. (in reply to billycoffey @katdish I'm going to play my Amish card and shun you.)

@billycoffey Bring it, Foo...(in reply to billycoffey @katdish Now you see, I was trying to be nice. The gloves are off now.)

@billycoffey Hey Gimpy! How are you feeling?

@Nick_theGeek So I suppose that takes us back to where we started. We can't fix things, but God can. (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish I can tell you about God's ability to break this cycle first hand. Not for me but for my dad.)

@Nick_theGeek So these kids stay in the home, nothing changes & they end up being abusers or victims. THAT'S WHAT IS SO FRUSTRATING! (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish it is "investigated" and in the two instances nothing happened. In the one I didn't even think I should call it in though.)

@Nick_theGeek but they get put right back in. Don't they? (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish I am a manatory reporter if it affects a minor. I have had to call twice.)

@Nick_theGeek What's your legal obligation? If any? If you know this stuff is going on? (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish preaching to the choir here. I work with a lot of troubled kids.)

@br8kthru Whoa! Where did that come from? No, no plans for a novel. Although a katdishionary is possible. (in reply to br8kthru @katdish yeah it was unsettling - so you planning on writing a novel?)

@Nick_theGeek I know. It's just so frustrating though. (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish yeah I think we need to remember that *we* can't fix any thing ... blog post idea it might be really good)

@Nick_theGeek it's like you said, I want to fix everything, but I can't. (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish yes ur post yesterday was very unsettling)

Guess I won't be wearing my flops after all. Which is a shame, because they match my shirt. http://twitpic.com/12ga9r


@Brian_Russell Don't you have something else to obsess about? (in reply to Brian_Russell Oh... no... Google Analytics is down for maintenance! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO!?)

Okay. I'm serious this time. Really have to go watch 24 this week. It was disappointingly lacking in violence last week.

@billycoffey I'm totally Superman. (in reply to billycoffey @SMBlooding We're like brother and sister. Or Superman and Lex Luthor.)

Crazy writers...

Do you people see what I have to put up with? >>>RT @billycoffey: @katdish Yes. Shut up and I hate you.

@BridgetChumbley I know! Tragic. (in reply to BridgetChumbley @katdish Oh no... you didn't have to cover up those freshly painted toes?!)

@billycoffey Hey. Did you see my sock tweet?

I realize many of you are enduring bad winter weather, but did I mention that I'm having to wear socks today? I hate socks.

@marni71 Seven and Seven? Do they have matching "Kick me" shirts? (in reply to marni71 @PeterPollock You know what's sad? My husband's cousin is named "Seven". So is his son. Wow.)

RT @beckfromfrogandtoad: @katdish Yes, fairly cute in a Let's Move Out Of Our Rodent-Infested House Now sort of way. //Snort!

@beckfromfrogandtoad Oh, cute! Sort of like a wild hamster.

@Nick_theGeek It does help with the wrinkles. (in reply to Nick_theGeek @katdish also, did u c that @CandySteele is trying to get me 2 steam my own baby?)

@beckfromfrogandtoad What is a vole?

Okay. I'm back...What is it about the carpool line that turns people into complete idiots?

Ugh! Is it morning already? http://twitpic.com/12dwr8


Dang - RT @BreakingNews: "Deadliest Catch" captain Phil Harris dies, Discovery announces http://bit.ly/b8F5Cr

@Brian_Russell I had to sign up for a digg account to vote for you. You're welcome.

@Brian_Russell You truly are shameless. Well done, grasshopper. (in reply to Brian_Russell Help us get some Diggs! http://digg.com/d31IKcV #webcomic #LOST)

@BridgetChumbley You could put it right next to your patience.( in reply to BridgetChumbley @katdish The great part about my bra is that no matter how full the freezer is... you can always find room...)

@weightwhat Snort!( in reply to weightwhat @katdish Ssshhh! You weren't supposed to say that until @sarahmsalter falls asleep!)

@BridgetChumbley That would totally work, but you lost me with the hashtag (in reply to BridgetChumbley @katdish How's this? Don't go to bed... you want to stay up ALL night! #reversepsychologyalwaysworks)

@weightwhat No luck so far.(in reply to weightwhat @katdish Are you ever gonna figure out who IS the boss of you?)

@weightwhat I'm more a bra in the freezer sort of gal.( in reply to weightwhat @katdish Wanna stay up all night, paint our nails and talk about boys then?)

@sarahmsalter Thanks, mom! (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish Nope... But I am looking out for your best interests. :o)

@sarahmsalter You're not the boss of me. (in reply to sarahmsalter @katdish Go to bed, woman!)

I need to go to sleep. I really, really do. And yet...I don't want to. I'm so stubborn sometimes.

Okay, peeps. Gotta go interface with the non-virtual people.

RT @the_original_xy: chuck norris is trending again? what is wrong with the world?

Y'all, I'm not kidding. It's COLD here! I'm wearing socks and a long sleeved shirt. Snort! http://twitpic.com/12a030


@VariantVal Words to live by, Val. (in reply to VariantVal @Nick_theGeek it bleaches some fabrics.. so either way the clothing is ruined, so it is best to kill naked still)

Curious... http://twitpic.com/129huy


@marni71 Oh Marns...that's just sad.

RT @marni71: You know what's a happy sound? That beep the microwave does when your Lean Cuisine is finished.

RT @billycoffey: My children are on their seventh straight snow day, further evidence that God really likes my book.

Buddy falls asleep watching tv again. http://twitpic.com/126ipz

Very interesting! And funny ;)

Eric said...

One of the highlights of my "web surfing" -- reading your wonderfully, crazy, insightful, fun, thoughtful, Twitter posts! :)

Thanks...

♥ Kathy said...

It's cold here too but I refuse to put socks on!

Robin Arnold said...

I've been thinking about how to spell Muttley's laugh. I think it might work "hewee" but speedy like.

I enjoy your posts both top down and bottom up.

Maureen said...

Is that where I live?

Obviously, Buddy understands!

Thanks for another laugh-filled Saturday. (

(P.S. More snow in forecast. My next set of pics will feature an igloo. I heard one was built on the Mall the other day. Congress couldn't take the hint about global warming.)

JML said...

I hope this gum makes MY ass look big.

Wendy said...

I think I need to get those CDs. If they make them for dogs and cats, do you think they make them for husbands?

Laura said...

I'm going to order that cd for my dog :)

Seriously, these should be published. Best seller. Really! I'm laughing my Fatassitosis off (oh, wait, that's not a noun, is it?)

Anyway, you crack me up.
