That man roped me into anoth­er mes­sag­ing thingie, Plurk. If you’re already a mem­ber, I’m Tech­noMom there, of course.

I can’t real­ly blame him, since Twit­ter seems to be down all the time. Pownce nev­er real­ly took off, did it?

I wish Plurk had a desk­top client, though.

I must say that I find Twit­ter’s excus­es for their tech­ni­cal prob­lems fair­ly ridicu­lous. They used a con­tent man­age­ment sys­tem for a mes­sag­ing plat­form, and nobody thought that would cause prob­lems?

It was a nice, bor­ing day, which means I don’t have much to talk about. Hap­pi­ly, oth­er peo­ple do.

Open Rela­tion­ships: What the World Already Has is a very good post over at Huff­in­g­ton by Jen­ny Block. I hope to read more from her. I def­i­nite­ly intend to get a copy of her book, Open: Love, Sex, and Life in an Open Mar­riage when it comes out in June.

I can’t say that I was shocked to hear that the TSA forced a woman to remove her nip­ple pierc­ings with pli­ers before allow­ing her to board a flight, but I am dis­gust­ed. I’m glad that I don’t have to trav­el much,1 but I def­i­nite­ly think that the next time we do trav­el we’ll give Amtrak seri­ous con­sid­er­a­tion over fly­ing.

Why is it that 29 total strangers have start­ed “fol­low­ing” me on Twit­ter, when I haven’t even logged in since the 21st?


1 Not that I would­n’t like to trav­el more for plea­sure, I just would­n’t want to do it on some­one else’s sched­ule

Foul­Bas­tard wins with an aston­ish­ing 34% of the votes! It may not sound like a huge lead, but when you con­sid­er that we had 33 nom­i­nees and 106 votes, it is! The first run­ner-up, Bad­Banana, had 14% of the vote.

Shashi Bel­lamkon­da came up with the idea for this poll, and gath­ered the nom­i­na­tions. I’m just host­ing it for him 🙂

{democracy:2}

The poll opens at 5pm EST today and will close at mid­night EST on Sun­day, Decem­ber 10. It does­n’t mat­ter whether you vote in the side­bar or in this post—all the votes go to the same place.
