a setting or feature on twitter that allows you to default your tweets as protected (or, conversely, unprotected) and then select specific tweets to be viewed by the general public (or, conversely, only by your followers)?
go go gadget twitter connection developers!
(yea yea someone’s probably already thought of this before, but does it actually exist yet? is the question.)
There are definitely enough examples of things I write that justify my account being private,
and I suppose people who care what I have to say could just simply request to follow me,
and I suppose also that arguably few of my tweets carry much weight in the slightest (usually I talk about (a) food or (b) traffic or (c) grammar)…
but goddamnit i am a 23 year old citizen of corporate, cubicled america, and why wouldn’t a random person on the internet want to read mybits of insight in convenient 140-character packages?!
don’t get me wrong, I do really like st patrick’s day (what’s not to love about it? and as a redhead named molly I’m as Irish as they come…ostensibly, at least) but there is something communist-like and cult-ish (almost to the point of being creepy) to me about everyone walking around wearing green
that said, do you really have to be the douche who wears red or purple today? …or at least something neutral. it’s not even like a sporting event trying to attempt a “white out” when you just didn’t get the memo…the holiday has been around for how long now? don’t say you didn’t have advance warning…the holiday doesn’t even change around from year to year a la mother’s day or thanksgiving. really now.
in other news, this holiday was always honestly kind of boring growing up because I spent ten years at a school with forest green uniforms, so everyone was always sufficiently prepared against pinchers, but it made for a pretty anticlimactic holiday
I suspect this holiday is equally anticlimactic for the following groups of people:
Stuart:i dislike today because there's no holiday celebrating other ethnic groups like, why the irish and not the jews?
me:yall have a whole slew of holidays!
Stuart:those are religious holidays. where is the holiday where non-jews celebrate us? the thing is, everyone celebrates st. patrick's day. or can. only jews celebrate our religious holiday. there should be a day where everyone walks around with glasses or something. or they get scolded Jewish-grandmother style
me:maybe you just need to drink more to get a holiday. load up on that maneschewitz (sp?)
Posting this for Sarah since she loves Lion King…. oh and Lil Wayne, too, even though he has recently proven to be an idiot. No idea who to credit, but it was found here, with the help of the always-awesome Hype Machine.
Our projections come from an analytical model that factors in advanced basketball metrics—including offensive and defensive efficiency—plus characteristics like the ability to draw fouls and create turnovers.
The two biggest surprises are Brigham Young—the West’s No. 7 seed—reaching the Final Four and Kentucky falling two rounds short of Indianapolis. BYU is a darling of the statistical crowd; the Cougars are among the nation’s best at shooting and protecting the ball.
As for UK, the Wildcats, who feast on offensive rebounds, could encounter matchup problems against Wisconsin or Temple, which are both strong on the defensive glass.
But don’t worry — even though she can only move twenty feet on her own in one go, she says she feels very healthy and her husband finds her very sexy (their first daughter was born in 2007, and it took a medical team of 30 to perform the procedure). “I love eating and people love watching me eat,” she said. “It makes people happy, and I’m not harming anyone.” You go, girl! Go against that grain!
