No, I Will Not Follow You on Twitter (Or: Why My Blogroll Has Shrunk)

Sometimes when I read my last post before my hiatus, I get a laugh at the parts where I wrote "I'll probably be gone for a month or two..." and "... But I won't be completely gone - I'll just live vicariously through those on my blogroll."


Hah. Turns out, I lied about both. 

Up until last week, I hadn't looked at another blog since the day I stopped writing mine. So earlier today when I decided to start catching up on my favorites, I was surprised to see that some of them no longer existed, or are also on hiatus. Or worse, they're no longer "blogs" and instead are "Tumblrs" or "Twitters" or "microblogs" or some shit like that. Dude, I can barely feign interest in your regular-size blog; what makes you think I want to follow your cutesy little one? 

See, you have to understand: The last time I was blogging I was still heavily involved in the hi-tech industry. Now I'm not. The part of me that used to care about fancy high-falutin' crap like that has been replaced with - indifference. In fact, I'm actually regressing in my technology lifestyle - for example, I traded in my iPhone for a shitty $9 Go Phone (not kidding). So your request to follow you on Twitter? Not going to happen. But good luck with that. 

My blogroll has been adjusted accordingly.  You're welcome.

I don't have cable or internet at home anymore and my cell phone is from Hong Kong and doesn't read text messages. It's awesome being more unplugged.

I don't understand all this "tumblr" nonsense. Some of my favorite blogs have changed over to tumblrs...which is essentially just Twitter with pictures.

I'm trying to waste time here, I need more than two sentences and some tiny picture to look at!

So glad to find another Amish blogger person like myself. No tweeting or tumbling or stumbling.

Damn, what's a girl got to do to get JESUS to comment on her blog? Bastard.

Anyhoo, CONGRATUFUCKINGLATIONS on Georgetown, wow! If I end up going to AU in the fall, I'll have to buy you a beer sometime! (When I'm not contemplating the most grotesque way to off myself.)

Oh sad. I am off the blogroll. But I do have a new blog. I swear! It's tumblr but I promise you'll like it--or your money back (and don't you need that money for school)?

E-mail or facebook me and I'll give you the link. Hopefully that's not too *advanced.*

PS- I hate Twitter.

I'm still holding off on this cell phone craze. It's all going to blow over soon.
