High {in}fidelity

I must admit: I've been cheating on you, blog.

I've been tweeting.
I know, I know. I'm sorry!
It's not you, it's me. (And now the not-following-the-crowd-silly-snob in me insists on noting that I've been on Twitter for over a year, long before all of these recent press flurries about it. There, n-f-t-c-s-s Annie, are you happy?)

It's been difficult to write blog entries lately, for a variety of reasons, but somehow the little twitter tweets with their 140 character limit have been a welcome recipient of my spare thoughts (and much less time consuming!).

We just keep getting shorter and pithier, don't we? First letters, then phone calls, then emails, then blogs, then facebook, then twitter. With some texting thrown in there somewhere. I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this progression (regression?) but I do know I've become a convert to this newest thing. I like knowing what others are up to. It satisfies the curious-about-life-and-others me. Plus you get information lightning fast.

Anyway, here are some pretty mundane descriptions of what I've been up to lately:

  1. On the bright side=my migraine last night made me go to bed at 7:30 and now I feel pretty great.
  2. listening to Sam practice the piano. It takes much longer to convince him to practice than it does for him to actually do it.
  3. I'm so glad I didn't buy an iphone on Saturday...I want the new one on June 19! http://www.apple.com/iphone/
  4. Just made all of the phone calls on my list (dr., dentist, plumber, eye dr., you name it I called them). Now I deserve a reward, right?
  5. gym-->working at home-->listening to Little Joy-->walk dog-->lunch at neighborhood shop.
  6. Dessert for dinner: what's not to like about angel food cake, lemon curd, strawberries and whipped cream?
  7. already looking forward to my Sunday nap.
  8. I'm pretty sure the lecture I just gave my daughter about not procrastinating was really aimed at myself.
  9. this might be iphone day...
  10. fresh mozzarella and tomato salad = lunch bliss
  11. @bridgetrawlins congrats to him! that's huge.
  12. Reading parts of Obama's speech to my kids and chatting about it. I love that we can have these conversations (@ ages 10, 13, 15).
  13. Now there's a bad day at work for someone:http://bit.ly/J48MQ
  14. Stooping to McDonalds for dinner tonight. My apologies, Supersize Me book.
  15. Off to meet my friend Jess at the lovely Nashoba Brooks Bakery. Nice way to welcome the weekend, even if it *is* raining.
  16. taking Louie to the vet this morning. I'm not a fan of the "bringing a sample" part.
  17. watching the national spelling bee with my kids. Cause we're cool like that.
  18. Up way too early this morning. If you can't sleep at 4:30 a.m. does it still count as insomnia?
  19. You know what's a good sound? Listening to your kids doing the dishes in the next room, dancing/singing to the TingTings & Paul Oakenfold

So do you twitter? 
If yes--> I'd love to follow you...just leave your [twitter]name in the comments. 
If you don't but are intrigued---> give it a shot!
If you don't and are repelled by the idea-->Just forget I said anything at all.  And sorry!--I'm sure my boring list of tweets did nothing to entice you.)
