My wife just finished a half-marathon. You know, running. A lot. Practicing to get away from me? Just kidding, congratulations Fran! #fb

I wonder if fighter pilots hate the Kenny Loggins song “Danger Zone” as much as I imagine they do? #fb
Easy for celebs to get in trouble online now. Need 2 B responsible.

@SlvrLambStudios She’s running in the Seattle half-marathon on Sunday, and went down early with friends to shop and hang out.

Shouldn’t it be spelled fonetic?
Where can I buy that awesome new Slap Bet game? It looks like a riot!
@geehoneybee She types really fast, so probably a bunch of them in a row…
My wife mistyped the word “doing” on her iPhone, and it was auto-corrected to “euthanasia”. What the hell?
@SuePolinsky Totally agree - no quoted text is craziness!
RT @chartier: I hate bottom replies in email. I know what I wrote, I wrote it. I don’t need to be told again. Just show me your response.
RT @rands The formula is pretty simple — if it looks like I don’t care, I don’t.
Life is very short, and there’s no time… for fussing and fighting my friend.
@ebertchicago I’m Canadian, and spent about a year obsessing about the assassination in my early teens. Stone’s JFK was closure, sort of.

“When attributing a tweet as a quote, is it he tweeted or he twittered?” -@APStylebook (Actually, the proper term is “tooted”. No kidding.)
RT @FakeAPStylebook In a double entendre, write a figure of speech so it can be taken in two ways—from the front and from the rear.
I just noticed the cowbell in the Beatles’ “Drive My Car”, awesome. << Insert more cowbell joke here >>
Nothing like listening to early Beatles to put you in a good mood.
It’s after 10:30 and I just remembered I brought coffee to work in a travel mug. Busy much? Amazingly, it’s still hot. #fb
Thanks to a generous co-worker, looking forward to taking in a Vancouver Giants game at the Pacific Coliseum tonight with my eldest son!

That last tweet didn’t start out all negative and cynical; that’s just the VALUE I ADDED with my social media expertise. You’re welcome.
Is now a social media expert. That’s still the cool thing to be doing right? Tell your friends to follow me for useless tips and shit.
Had fun playing poker at Bill’s. Would have been more fun if it weren’t for that Jack on the river, but that’s how it goes, I guess. #fb
RT @hotdogsladies Housekeeping put the plastic cover they found on my toothbrush. Which is super-nice if it had actually belonged to me.

Gladwell says to be an expert takes spending 10,000 hours of practice. I think I’m now an expert at blowing my nose and looking like a hobo.
@geehoneybee Nahh, slamming football doesn’t count as being negative; it counts as having taste / using my brain / being reasonable. :-p
And I’m all like whatevs, yo!
I just found out my wife hates my Twitter persona. And that I’m not witty, especially when I try to be. & my avatar is ugly. I’m ok, sniff.

So now I know why we don’t normally eat candy for dinner.
I need a do-over. #fb
@nbradbury I’ll find out whether I can do that.
Why are parents of young children surprised that they didn’t sleep in when we turned our clocks back? Can’t remember back one year?
Because they’re slow and boring, get it? No, but seriously… they are.
I just figured out why there’s so much tweeting about baseball and football: because there’s TIME to tweet when watching those sports. Lots.
@nbradbury Many products are “branded” differently than their ownership, which is what I thought was being implied. Mea Culpa
