Hi Doris- How are you doing ? I have been on in the evening this week 'til today. How are the g-kids ? Drivin' you crazy ? My g-son in coming back for another visit next week with his Dad. It will be great to see him again. ( They are only staying for a couple of days, then will go to TN to see the other g-parents.)
I felt like I might have one of my diabetes meltdowns over there at the lab. it's a very dreary place, lots of old ppl, sad ppl. I know most of the blood takers over there, and I see who's there and request Paul usually. It's just gets so tiresome all the stuff we have to do.
click on one of those Trending topics and you will get an idea of how many thousands of ppl all over the world are using Twitter. Did you see Manny's retweet today about a 3-d billboard in England for Wonderbra? He finds a lot of very funny stuff. go to his Twitter page sometime.
well, I guess you're going to have to do some redecorating. can you put a small rug over it, or move somefurniture to hide it?
yes, I just got back from getting my blood taken (5 vials), coffee at McDs, haircut, bought a quilt batt at ACMoore, grocery store and wine store. I don't usually have to do all these errands by myself. It was weird going to LabCorp without Ed. I have an endo appt soon, and I felt I should get it done today.
#FF on Twitter stands for #FollowFriday - you will see them tomorrow a lot, and you will also see it as a "Trending Topic" - have you noticed Trending Topic (or TT) yet on the right hand side? when LOTS of ppl are tweeting about something, it can become a TT. anyway, if you like someone and want to recommend them, you give them a #FF shout out. nicest example I can remember is some one tweeted "#FF @askmanny - he has thousands of followers, but makes you feel like the only one". if you see someone you like do a list of ppl with a #FF, you can check them out and then maybe you will decide to follow them too.
oh, also on the TT - last year we very briefly got TuDiabetes in the TTs because we were riding the coattails of a Nick Jonas tweet that thousands and thousands of girls were retweeting. so we were frantically tweeting and retweeting each others' posts about #WDD - I want you to get in on the FUN this year!
next we have to get you up on #FollowFriday or #FF
I already tweeted for ppl to #FF @4evernanny b/c you want to be ready for #WDD Nov 14 - so hopefully you'll get more followers from the diabetes online community (known as the DOC) going for my blood work now - ugh - #bgnow 209 double ugh
it's a page from "What the hashtag" about the hashtag #helpdiabeteshf (sp?) and you can see "4evernanny" made the list of top tweeters yesterday using that hashtag! look carefully, I think you're #9. so Doris, you helped! nighty-night!
As long as they keep making hair dye, I'll never be that old. I'll be 57 in a few months. I see the pictures of folks I knew years ago on Facebook. And I wonder what happened to them. They got OLD! I attibute it to the extra weight. It poofs the wrinkles out so you can't tell. LOL! 15 years ago, one of my favorite toys was my CAD system. Since I sold computers back then, I was able to get what I wanted at cost. And I loved computer aided design. However, I seemed to have a big problem with creativity...as in not having any. So I gave it to my nephew's brother in law as a highschool graduation present, since he did pursue that for a career. And I got tired of the darned thing mocking me as I tried to ignore it.
I started working in the computer industry at age 25, when you got a terminal and a keyboard. Data was kept on punch cards and tapes. The printers were huge and stayed in their own departments, so you had to go walk to another building to get your print outs. If you wanted a spreadsheet, you had to write the program for it. The computers were actually in temperature controlled environments. Some were water cooled and some were air cooled. How's that for ancient? I'm 56 now and still a rabid IT type person. I love my dual monitors, and being able to conference into a worldwide meeting and have everyone looking at the same thing with MeetingToGo. So, Twitter? pfft! Piece of cake. Unfortunately, being diabetic. I don't do cakes. LOL!!! You can do it, Doris!
