my mom is so tweet.

last night my mom and i stayed up talking. and discussing the type of things you find yourself discussing at two am. like obama on jay leno. if we like this hot pink nail polish i picked for my toes. how springy perfect weather this is. making new friends in my neighborhood. baby proofing my apartment. bridal shower games. how great my mom's library is. i'd be reading a lot of fantastic books if i weren't so busy discussing the important things in life. like who twitters. okay so i'm new to this whole tweet business. in between all our chatting, i would interrupt with my twitter finds. oh, here's so and so. she/he twitters. it's true, on seldom occasion, i chat and surf. i do not recommend it when your boyfriend wants to have a heart to heart, but when you and your mom are waiting for her sleeping pill to kick in, anything goes. my mom is so cool.

for the record, i'm not that into twitter. or facebook. or myspace. or diet coke. a part of me feels like i should be. that little piece of me who is still a schoolgirl on the playground wanting to because everyone else is doing it. but to be honest, this little bird spends enough time tweeting tweaking her own blog in the rare spare time she has. but the big piece of me who relishes flipping through a juicy gossip magazine loves the celebs who twitter.

last night we tapped into some excellent twitters. martha stewart, ellen, ashton and taylor swift. mischa barton. dave matthews. rachel maddow. and jimmy fallon. and chewbacca. and NEIL DIAMOND. no way. yes way. oh dan, i hope you're reading this. a daily update on diamond. that's seriously good news.

happy weekend, people.

Mart, I totally read Ashton and Demi's twitters. Its the only way Mike could get me to use it. It is so interesting to see pictures and videos they upload of themselves. CRAZY!

Happy weekend to you, too!

lol, i'm often surfing the net while chatting to my mum too. i never do it with anyone else, but it just seems like when i'm talking with mum its a different rhythm of conversation. maybe its because i know she's multi-tasking on the other end of the line (probably doing the washing, baking a cake and drinking a cup of tea all at the same time) so i feel like i should be doing something else too!

With a sleeping-pill beginning to tingle inside my head, I thought Min and I were talking about birds. I thought I'd wake up to Tweets and Twitters from robins and larks. But this morning I'm hearing real cool chicks singing their hearts out about the neighborhood rooster. Twittering is cheap-cheap entertainment.

How cool that Niel Diamond is on Twitter. I have never been on it before myself but I am a huge fan of his so I am intrigued. Thanks for letting me know!
