Tweet Week - Goodbye July!

So here's the InkGypsy & 'Og' minutiae from the last week or so - 'cause everyone likes to peek behind-the-scenes...

I have made an effort to report more 'Og' news to keep Daddy in the loop with all he's busy with these days so there's a whole lot to read! (A reminder - the most recent is at the top.)

FRIDAY/TODAY: August 1st
  • Fail whale has a girlfriend...
  • Teetering on the edge of soap right now... I have little patience for sudsy shows.
  • 'Think like a fish to catch a fish' - I like it.
  • This is an odd show. I was told it might take me a while to warm up to it.. funny, considering it takes place in Alaska.
  • @jrblackwell Stardust - yeah, it had a couple of quotables - need to look up my text to see if that was Neil Gaiman or the screenwriter
  • My LJ buddies have given me lots of good stuff to read but there are not enough hours left in my day... *sigh*
  • Og: beatbox baby!
  • 18 month old rapping to Shakespeare - specifically The Othello Rap by RSC - knew those raspberry-skills would be handy for something!
  • Re previous tweet - it's the argument for there being computers in the Garden of Eden.
  • "Eve had an Apple and Adam had a Wang..."
  • Reduced Shakespeare Company on Jeopardy LOL! Love these guys.
  • OK I admit it - I never figured out the deal with the changeling boy in Midsummer Night's Dream. What happened to him? Should we care? about 13 hours ago from web
  • So the skylight isn't working today....!
  • @Nobilis Wow - that's.. extreme. They'd be the ones I was suspicious of!
  • @mudsock Do not press
  • Lock up your laptops!

THURSDAY: July 31st
  • Brain going - body can't keep up. Lying down does not guarantee I'll sleep but I'll give it a go. G'night.
  • Goodbye July and good riddance. Hoping August is much nicer to our little world.
  • OK so this drawing doesn't totally suck. Bloodhounds are harder to draw than I thought though.
  • OMG Saturn has OIL LAKES on its surface?!! I smell a new space-race in the works... *headdesk*
  • @PhilippaJane I watch cross-country wrestling (aussie rules) for that - I'm guaranteed short shorts and cute butts to distract me ;)
  • Og playing chicken with a squirrel - hmm.
  • @PhilippaJane Bullrush. *shudder*
  • @etherius Forgot to say welcome to Cali! We've got... um... 'stuff' I envy your latitudunal (!) destination. Los Strangeles is weird.
  • Listening to Whispers At the Edge & eating comfort cocoa pebbles.
  • @PhilippaJane & @TeeMonster 8 days to 08.08.08... Watching for weird things to happen today... [BOTH THEIR BOOKS ARE RELEASED ON 08.08.08]
  • On the plus side I was wearing less makeup than the clown today & Og thought it was worth getting dragged there so that's good.
  • The mailbox is not my friend.
  • Should have used the Visine BEFORE the mascara.
  • Have to go dress up to meet a mute clown now - pls let it be fun today or I might bite someone's head off - accidentally of course.
  • Worst frakkin' night's sleep in quite a while and since Og doesn't let me do much at the best of times, that's saying something! *GROWL*

WEDNESDAY: July 30th
  • Will have to finish my WS quote selection tomorrow. Zleepy!
  • MP3Mail sent after many interruptions.
  • C'mon Audacity - no more crashing please!
  • Og is thwarting my plans for this evening. *sigh*
  • Trying to explain the difference between nuts and screws to Og - believe it or not, I think he gets it.
  • @TeeMonster Unless you're wearing chainmail - apparently the electric field makes them act like puppies - I'm not kidding. Weird huh?
  • @TeeMonster I concur! As an Aussie you'd think sharks wouldn't be a problem for me but they're evil I tell you, EVIL! [RE PEOPLE BEING CRAZY DIVING WITH SHARKS]
  • Drawing chalk mermaids for @mudsock. Og is trying to wash them away.
  • Watching Og practicing his Ye Old Bamboo routine with his favorite stick.
  • @mightymur As a collector of purple appliances it's funny to think you now match my kitchen.
  • I didn't know ambulances could swim! OK - they don't, they sink but they still have little smiling Tonka faces which makes Og happy.
