Broken Promises

My news in brief since I've been a tad busy!

My 15 seconds of fame is officially over, although I managed to recruit 500 people so far to
a Facebook page thru this blog post (see FB page here <--) Despite my New Years resolutions I went out for food last night and ate 'STEAK' yet again - damn fine it was too! AND - I haven't been walking for two days so the exercise regimen is slipping but I put together three self assemble IKEA style cabinets with nothing more than a Swiss army knife (they call me McGyver) except I have cuts and bruises everywhere :-(

Busy planning for 'The Series of Events' beginning Jan 24th - 'Change is a Coming!' - Watch this space!

I'm still trying to get used to the political nature of the social networking tool known as 'Twitter' - i.e. If you don't follow me - I'll unfollow you - so there! Sometimes I genuinely don't get around to looking at who's following me so today a big wig of Irish Telecom unfollowed me cos I hadn't followed him - oops! -

Are you on Twitter yet?

You could call him. Reverse the charges of course.

Quickroute January 07, 2009 12:50 am  

@ Primal: It would have been so much cheaper to DM him :-(

Fida January 07, 2009 1:39 am  

No, I don't Twitter :-( Time, TIME, give me time! But congrats to your new design. I did wote (took time for that), and wow, those stats - impressive. Now you know how to get attention :-)

Fida January 07, 2009 1:40 am  

Oh, do I loose you now? I'll come back anyway, haha

you might want to change the colour of the writing below the title of your blog..as it is in white on a very light background it can´t be read..saludos desde Madrid

Twitter? Unfollow? Pad, I have absolutely no idea what you're on about. But how could you not eat steak living where you do?!

Peter January 07, 2009 7:13 am  

New to Twitter also. Could not care less if people unfollow me, unless I follow them.
Their problem. ;-)

Reminds me of a kids-blog tool my 10 year old was using, in which they could give a rating to eachother's blog. They would go over to eachother's site and say 'hey rate me 10, and I will rate you a 10 also'.

My purpose on Twitter is to be able to communicate with a social group of people with similar interest as I have. I don't follow people unless if they meet that criterium.

@ Fida: Thanks and no you didn't lose me - lol

@ Diarmuid: Ta for the heads up - seems to be different browsers display it differently

@ EM: You gotsta Twitter - you just gotsta!

@ Peter: Good analogy - Yeah very child like alright with bullies in the school yard included

Xbox4NappyRash January 07, 2009 12:23 pm  

I'm on twitter, but I don't use it.

I don't want to know what I have to do in the course of a day, never mind anyone else.

Stevo January 07, 2009 3:25 pm  

I like twitter, except for the litany of tweets like: I'm making a milkshake, It's raining outside, I think I'll go pee, etc. It a social circle-jerk, but much less fun that a real circle-jerk.

I want some steak. A giant steak, rare, not cut into chopstick sized pieces.

Megan January 07, 2009 3:59 pm  

I did not even know there was writing under the blog title! I think it's the office computer though. I'll check when I get home and see.

Don't you live in the LAND of steak? How can you resist??

conortje January 08, 2009 3:59 am  

like english mum I'm baffled too :-) must be something for the young 'uns...

Queen of Clean January 08, 2009 6:29 am  

I registered because I don't make enough time to blog...then didn't have time to be a twit.

NicoleB January 08, 2009 7:33 am  

Follow no follow. I know one thing: People tend to just write and not comment.
And I'm pretty tired of wasting my time there.
I post from time to time and that's about it.

Like on flickr & blogging, I comment at people's places once, twice and if nothing comes back "hasta la vista amigo" ;)

roy January 08, 2009 8:45 am  

Tried it didn't like it;

Quickroute January 08, 2009 9:05 am  

@ Xbox: I don't spend much time on it but have gotten some good info now and then

@ Stevo: the banal stuff irks me too - wish I could filter that out

@ Megan: That's the problem I eat it 5 times a week!

@ Conortje: google twitter my friend - it's all the rage!

@ Queenie: yeah I know what you mean - finding time is not easy

@ NicoleB: I like that it's a take it or leave it app - I've not really delved into Flickr but it's more for the photo peeps I guess

Broke But Still Drinking January 08, 2009 10:52 am  

Did you get anything from the 15 minutes of fame? Free t-shirts, drinks at the bar, etc...

TCL January 08, 2009 11:56 am  

I'm on twitter. But the daily minutia postings don't really interest me. So I don't check it that much.

I've been in Buenos Aires for two days. I've had two steak meals and have failed to even walk 5 blocks to the local gym to sign up for membership. What's for dinner with tomorrow's billiards outing? Draught beer or Malbec and steak?

Quickroute January 08, 2009 10:31 pm  

@ Broke: Yep - Free membership of the five mile high club and one free session of compulsive liar therapy

@ TCL: All of the above!

Nomadic Matt January 09, 2009 5:53 am

Shaunj January 09, 2009 10:38 am  

Sampling a "Polish style" (shudder) Argentinian steak house tonight. Shall give you my verdict morrow.

iWalk January 09, 2009 10:59 pm  

I am on twitter, But I really don't know how to take good use of it! yeah, I am not check it much, and I am using a Wordpress Plugin to post it automatically. :(

wandermom January 10, 2009 11:54 pm  

I'm rationing my twitter. Otherwise I get nothing else done for hours and hours. It's been great for networking (even got named as a 'travel twitterer you should follow http://www.elliott.org/blog/50-travel-twitterers-you-must-follow/). I think I'm following you...

Quickroute January 12, 2009 8:44 pm  

@ Matt: Thanks - yep following you too

@ Shaunj: So how was it?

@ iWalk: I use the auto post feature too

@ Wandermom: Nice one on the elliot mention - yep following you too
