the times, they go by

February 25, 2009

another super busy week at work. too busy to pay any attention to you, internet... come on you know that's not true.

this week: i can't stop eating annie's organic cheese bunnies. all i watch is NCIS. i can't get warm, i am always cold. i have bangs. yeah, i know... bangs. still trying to adjust to that. i have to wear my bella band every day now. last night we left our steak 'n shake milkshakes (mostly empty) on the coffee table and we woke up at 5 am to the sounds of nico eating them. and their styrofoam cups.

i am excited that we might be going to pittsburgh the weekend after my birthday. i am excited about my upcomming birthday because i want to eat cake. i am not excited about cleaning the house this week. i read a long and disturbing series of articles about how doctors sometimes mistreat pregnant women. maybe i'll expand on that later.

question: what happens when you are really annoyed by a real-life friend on twitter? you still like that person when you're together, but they only twitter about stupid things that annoy you... should you un-follow them, or just tough it out?

in conclusion: i would like to go back to sleep now please. and i'll leave you with this, courtesy of which had me laughing all morning:



As far twitter friends go, I would say that (even with the possibility that the person who annoys you is me), it's just fine to unfollow them. I don't think it says anything of your friendship that you might not be concerned with everything they want to post to what is essentially a micro-blog. I can't imagine being upset with friends simply because they're not concerned with the minutia of my life.

With that said, I use a Twitter client called DestroyTwitter, which allows you to remove people from your updates without unfollowing them. It's free as well, so you might look into that as a passive aggressive way to have your cake and eat it, too.
