MeFail

I'm wilting under a self-imposed ban to stay away from twitter until the weekend. My head is mostly buried in Nowhere Hall and I should be able to send the story scurrying to its intended market this weekend. Then, I guess I need to find anthology guidelines that are buried under a pile of mess and perhaps set my brain to thinking what the heck to write about for those.

Anyway, because I'm not ready to join Twitter Anonymous, here are the tweets I would have tweeted if I was on twitter...

=Sod Twitter Anonymous, I need to join Amazon Rank checker anonymous.
=I think I'm allergic to my butterfly necklace. This makes me sad. I think I'll continue to scratch until my skin tears off.
=Pitting a headless red jelly baby against a yellow one instead of writing… I mean, while I work out a plot point.
=My family have Rudolph noses. Thinking of sealing myself in a bubble. The house keeps shaking with their sneezes.
=My colleague leaves next week to work in DUBAI. She'll travel all over the world. Me, I'll continue to shuffle from scanner to computer.
=I'm in trouble. Haven't sorted out my nephew's wedding photos for mum yet. It'll be their 1st anniversary before I get to it.
=wish I was here :D

Of course there are no @replies. I do like to @reply, I'm especially fond of @reply cheekiness.

What is a jelly baby? They sound horrifying.

Acutally, they're quite yumsome... http://www.google.co.uk/images?q=jelly+babies&rls=com.microsoft:en-gb:IE-SearchBox&oe=UTF-8&rlz=1I7TSEA_en-GB&um=1&ie=UTF-8&source=og&sa=N&hl=en&tab=wi&biw=1259&bih=627

We've missed you on twitter. Come back!

Aren't jelly babies like gummy bears?

Cate Gardner said...

A little. I think gummy bears are tougher - and I don't mean in a 'can't behead them way'. Jelly babies are quite soft and covered in flour. I don't know why they're covered in flour.

Hope your family is all over the McSneezes

"My family have Rudolph noses. Thinking of sealing myself in a bubble. The house keeps shaking with their sneezes." So vivid. I nearly laughed out loud. I was that close. Might have busted my gut...

They're getting there, Kim :D And it doesn't seem to want to attack me. *Looks over shoulder*

Milo, I should send you some thread in the mail in case you need to stitch yourself together.
