The Cult of Lincoln

Saturday, July 25, 2009

Zoinks! It was just brought to my attention that LoudTwitter is now dead, and none of my posts have been showing up since the beginning of July. I want to try Twittinesis next, but I'm getting a "come back later" message when I try to register. In the meantime, you can read me tweeting Comic Con at my Twitter page.

For my records, here's the entire month of July in an ungodly-long, reverse-chronological, linkless Twitterspam.
  • Hmm. Wonder if Katee Sackhoff could fit in suitcase, too. I think I need a bigger suitcase. (Are these tweets going to get me arrested?) 23 minutes ago
  • Photo of Matt Keeslar, Natalie Morales, and Avon bear is so ridiculously adorable! *squeesplosion!* Ditto Brendan Hines and Mark Sheppard. 26 minutes ago
  • Frak. Photo of Javi with Avon Bear is majorly blurry. Wonder if I can track him down today to retake it... @lisawalkscom 30 minutes ago
  • Looking through photos. Would it be wrong to kidnap Matt Keeslar and take him home in my suitcase? Because if so, I don't wanna be right. 37 minutes ago

Your daily EPIC FAIL: Hey, St. Nick: Put down the cookie: Top doctor in U.S. says big guy sets bad example.

America’s top doc told the Herald yesterday that Santa Claus should slim down, in the latest blow struck in a global politically correct crusade against the jolly fat man... And it just gets worse from there.
