So so so. Most exciting news. Somehow I'd stumbled across a book written by this cool-sounding woman, and when I discovered she had a twitter account, I began following her. I guess she then read my tweets, cause she wrote me a little note telling me she found me charming, and then she signed up to follow me. Neat! My first positive non-Buffy-related internet exchange with a complete stranger. How cool and unexpected is that?

Okay, cats, it's official - Head's twittering.

Huh. Don't know if any of you are following him, but Anthony Head's official site claims he is not on Twitter, guys. Just thought I'd pass that along.

Heh. Just read this article on Twitter Quitters that helped clear the Twit scene up for me a bit. Apparently, it's my own boring narcissistic tendencies that prevent me from appreciating the full bennies of les tweets. That's probably true. I guess I'll just have to give it the time it deserves to let it work its magic on me. Hope it happens fast. Not sure how much time I might have left.

Just got off the phone with someone who works for the CDC and I'm gonna go out on a limb and say she didn't sound too happy. Had that stressed out, tight throat worried quality to her voice that I found less than reassuring. She did say the news was blowing things out of proportion a bit, though. It took all my effort not to grill her as long as I had her on the phone, but I couldn't get myself to ask the big questions. Just felt impolite to press her, so instead I asked about little things that I'd been curious about, like testing accuracy and speed, which, now that I think of it, was pretty fucking stupid. I mean, how often do you get to talk to someone from the CDC during a potential pandemic? She answered my questions to the best of her ability and then said that she just keeps reminding her daughter to wash her hands thoroughly. Good advice, even without the pandemic, no?

Husband's company posted information above the sinks in the restrooms today explaining just how one should go about washing one's hands. He took offense. Says he's been washing his own hands for nearly forty years, and thinks he's been doing just fine without step-by-step instructions. Hrm. Dunno about this, flist. Yesterday, we had another bomb scare over at the high school. Between that and this flu thingy, my panic attacks are threatening to resurface and head straight into overdrive. *Gulp* Mommy?

Twitter is for the boyds. Seriously, I do not see the attraction. Layfolk get to interact with celebrities*, which is cool if you're into that sort of thing, I guess. And narcissists get the simple pleasure of sharing every thought that enters their heads: Ran out of toilet paper! Must buy more!** Which, I'll admit, does have a certain appeal, but still.

I schooch around over there from time to time, because I'm enjoying Brent Spiner's insane tweets, but he remains the only Twit I follow. Thought Jonathan Ross might be entertaining. He is not. (See ** comment below). Tina Fey makes far too many poop jokes for my taste. They stopped being funny when I stopped being six. (Oh, who am I kidding. They'll never stop being funny.) Yoko Ono's sound like she's copying them off of fortune cookies. (No Asian slight intended. Honestly, she only tweets in platitudes: Remember! We are all water in the same ocean!) And poor dear Anthony Head (if he is indeed Anthony Head) needs to either commit to the Twittering or quit. Ah, coffee and a donut! doth not an interesting tweet make.

*Kevin Spacey is not a celebrity. Please don't call him one. He is An Actor.

**For some reason! Twittering! Makes people wanna! Turn every statement into! A declaration!

Have decided to only express myself in 140 characters or less. What a brilliant concept! Counting characters and spaces, I'm already up to

I finally broke down and watched one and a half episodes of Merlin today. I liked it, even though I found Head's scenery chewing a little bit of a distraction. I'm hoping he gives his chompers a rest in later eps, but somehow I doubt he will. He does look like he's enjoying himself in that costume, though, and I enjoy watching him enjoy himself, so it's a win despite the leftover tapestry crumbs on his chain mail. And Colin Morgan is just the cutest little thing ever. Made myself sift through parts of Excalibur on Netflix for contrast. Nicol Williamson just cannot pull off cuddly. I love John Boorman, but I'll never understand him. Hope and Glory is perfection, and Zardoz and Excalibur are insane. Anyway, I guess I'm going to have to find some way to get my computer hooked up to our big screen so the whole family can enjoy watching Merlin together. Wouldn't be too comfortable for the five of us to huddle 'round my laptop. I suppose I could just make the others wait until the summer to get hooked on it. June is only a couple of months away.

Also, I finally found someone on Twitter who is interesting enough to follow and it's Brent Spiner, of all people. He's funny. Who knew?
