Hey now - Andrew Sullivan is a Genesis fan! Who knew. Now I'll have to read his column - at least until my leftie pinkoness gets in the way.

It's been a long week with many minor figurative scrapes and bruises. Due to lack of time, I twittered most of it from my cell phone. I'm thinking that twitter might end up being a filter and idea pool for actual LJ posts... it's just that it's so easy to use, and sort of forces the short form, which makes me get to the real substance.

Now after my week of icky bits, the topping on my cupcake is that I got a permanent crown affixed today with temporary glue to try it out. Naturally, it came out. So I have a sensitive gap. AND instead of pleasantly sleeping in tomorrow on my wonderful day off, I have to get up and march down there and make them put it back. Hrmf.

Actually, one of his guest bloggers (Eric) is a Genesis fan. Andrew and Aaron are off getting ready for their wedding.

They actually live in the neighborhood except during the summer, so I frequently run into them and their adorable beagles.

Hey, next time you see him, could you pet his dogs and then tell him I said he's a worthless, war-enabling fuckwit?  That would be great.

Re: ...
well, I *could*, but I don't see why you wouldn't just send him mail and tell him yourself. He does read his mail. Personally, I'd rather engage him in dialogue and allow for the possibility of change as well as trying to understand the complexity of motivations. It's possible to like someone as a person and not agree with their ideology.

Man. If it wasn't, I'd live in a hole in the ground and eat bugs!

Annoying how?

Like in that it seems to rigidly enforce pithy sound-bites devoid of real content. But that's just from looking at your link; I wasn't inspired to explore.

HAH! So the stuff I wrote was pithy, sound bit, and devoid of content? Thanks!

O.k. Step back a second...

Read this and this.

Which do you think gives more insight into the life and personality of the author?

Did I not just say I was using it as a filter and idea pool? Not to give insight on my life. If I think of something, or something is occurring that I want to report, but I'm not in front of a computer, I can drop it there, and then pick it up later and make it into a full post if I want to. If nothing else, it's saving you guys from having to read every damn sound bite or pithy comment that falls out of my head! It's not the same purpose. I mean, if you find that annoying, I understand, but I don't think that means the entire concept or application is annoying.

I am also interested in reading the pithy sound bites and 140 character things that happen to my friends that they don't necessarily want to journal, so to me it's appealing and I hope more friends use it. :)

Hey, if you're into it, that's great. There's nothing wrong with extreme brevity, if that's what you want to say. I was just saying that it seems to be a major limitation of the site, and is another reason I probably won't be tuning in over there.

I think brevity is the point, not a limitation.

I think the value in twitter is in being able to easily drop tiny updates there via text messaging.

That said, I haven't gone so far as to actually set it up, because I'd rather drop tiny updates like that directly into my lj and keep it all in one place.

Re: ...
I humbly suggest you drop more tiny updates!
