Twitter Weekly Updates for 2009-06-28

Twitter Updates this week:

  • Trying out the #Socialtext Free 50 option http://bit.ly/IssCw. Quite impressed by features & simplicity, not so much by loading times. #
  • New day job: Handling calls for my absent girlfriend. Unfortunately, this doesn’t pay the rent. #
  • It’s almost unbearably hot & humid today. If i had scissors, i could cut air in tiny little blocks and sell them on Etsy. #
  • Baking buns for sunday breakfast. Each time getting nearer to the perfect recipe, but still not quite there. #

Twitter updates this week:

  • Toying with the idea of getting a new suit. How about a dark chocolate brown? Striped or non-striped? Ah, decisions. #
  • Settled for dark striped brown and a nice slipover to go with it. Now i only need a reason to wear it. Did i miss a matching tie? Yes. #
  • Pondering possibilities that arise with a simle telephone call. #

Weekly Summary from Twitter:

  • I was voter no. 25 in my electoral district of several hundred people. So much for the local interest in European politics. #

  • Coffee first, cover letters and resumes second. #
  • Dracula, as played by Frank Langella, really is some kind of tragic 70’s playboy. #
  • I should quote Bela Lugosi more often: „Children of the night. What music they make!“ #
