Shot with the tranquilizer gun so I could brush its teeth, here we examine all of my tweets from Thursday of this week, archived here for your refusal. Beyond here there be dragons. And cheesecake. But don’t try to eat it. Its probably got poop on it.

Let’s Give Them Something To Tweet About
Note: Internet search tells me I’m only the 42 millionth person to think up the title used for this post. Maybe those 42 million other bozos can tweet about how unoriginal I am.
Ah, Twitter. Cruel mistress of pain and delight. An effective combination to be sure. Today I’m going to go random on the topic of Twitter. To honor the spirit of the subject matter, I’m going to try to limit my piths to 140 characters or less. (That’s a big plus for most of you right there!)
The One Word Writing Challenge – Presidential Edition
It’s time for a writing challenge.
Wow. I can’t believe I’m even going to joke about that. Some crazy person might decide to get back on the net and issue some damn drabble or thirty-word story challenge and then where would I be?
Ah, what the hell. I’m willing to risk it.
I’ve had an email discussion with a friend from across the aisle for weeks about Obama and Romney. Specifically the discussion revolved around one-word descriptions for each of the presidential wannabes. Just a single word. If you sincerely try, finding one and only one word to encapsulate most anything is pretty damn hard to do.
Then along comes with with the “#DefineObamaInOneWord” hashtag thingy. Once again Twitter is aping my awesome creativity and stealing my idea. Sorry, Twitter. This was my idea from weeks ago and I’ve got the emails to prove it.
The one-word writing contest:
Define Obama, Romney or both, using only one-word each. Reply to this post with your entries.
By the way, if you enter multiple times, you weaken the “one-word-ness” of your entry. Think about it.
True pith is hard. If it was easy everyone would do it. So this is your big chance to pith on my blog. You’re not going to pass that up, are you?
