A Chirp Account.

My mom is the only person on earth who gets away with calling me by my christian given name.  She usually does then when I’m in kak though, which just reaffirms for me why I despise her child labelling choice for me.

Sheena-Laura, who is this young man you’ve been seeing lately and why do I not know about him? Excuse me?

I read your blog the other day and saw that picture thing to click and it took me to your Chirp account. My what account, Mother?

Don’t change the subject.  Who is he? For the sweet love of jelly beans, I have no idea what you are talking about.

Don’t lie to me, darling.  If you’re being all coy about it that’s fine, it shows you actually like him which means that hopefully you will allow yourself to keep a man around long enough to give me a grand child. Sigh.  I give up.  Really.  Who have you been speaking to?  I’m not seeing anyone.  And what the hell is a Chirp account, Mom?

**It turns out, she meant my bloody TWITTER account.  And the man in question is my online beau, Justin.  Poor thing.  She happened to click on my account the day he and I were joking about our wedding one day.  She’s already asked my little brother to be ring barer, McCall.  I’m just warning you.**

Sometimes I wonder if being so open online is a good thing for my personal life.  For the record, I am very much single, okay.  Do you hear that Mommy dearest?  Single.

No grandkids.

Go bug my brother.

    I’m lucky in that my parents aren’t exactly comfortable with new technology. Which is perhaps a good thing given that my earlier blogs were quite ‘raw’. My current one is positively boring in comparison.

    like i told you on twitter, i´m trying to get people from my personal life more involved into my internet activity, but most people don´t seem to care. i´m glad that my mum and dad don´t care… it´s not like i post stuff that i wouldn´t tell them, but sometimes i use a lot of cursewords… given that i write teh christian community magazine here, it´s probably not a good idea to do so, but i don´t think anyone from my village has actually ever looked at my blog.. at least i hope so… i still feel uncomfortable that i posted some battlerap-mp3s in the guestbook of the homepage of my village some years ago… i hope they forgot :D.. but i´m not very involved in this community here, i work 50kms away and that´s also the place where my friends live.. that´s the people i want to get involved.

    B, I know, sorry babe. I only come onto my site to update it again, and it irritated me in 2.7 seconds. My bad. I removed it though, without anyone having to ask me – so, brownie points? 😛

    And bugger off with the name.

    T-Shirt Hell closing down was a scam, suckers.
    By da nerd SheBee on 17 Feb 2009.
    Ha ha ha!

    Ha ha ha!

    You know how T-Shirt Hell decided to close their doors? You know how he ended off his website with a big “Fuck You” to everyone? You know how disappointed everyone of his fans were?

    Well you were all sucked in. The dude pulled “a prank”. It’s a false alarm. His latest newsletter confirms it:

    “I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell – “FUCK YOU IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A JOKE!” Things have got to change. But first, you’ve gotta get mad! You’ve got to say, “I’m as mad as hell, and I’m not going to put up with these overly sensitive morons who can’t take a joke anymore”. Then we’ll figure out what to do about the depression and the assholes who look at you funny. But first get up out of your chairs, stand up in your cubicles, put down your bongs, zip up your pants and yell, ‘”FUCK YOU IF YOU CAN’T TAKE A JOKE!”

    T-Shirt Hell is not going out of business. In fact, we wouldn’t leave even if we had to resort to selling dead babies for food when this economy truly hits the fan. Consider Feb, 2009 a fresh start for us. We’re going to be bigger, better and more fucked up than before. Worse Than Hell is back. The black lady who writes the most intellectually (anally) stimulating newsletter on the net is back. We’re fucking back. But oh…wait…we never actually left.”

    I’m not sure if I should be pissed at his arrogance and our ignorance in falling for his scam in buying all the “last items for sale ever, bitches” or truly impressed by his absolute audacity and golden pair of balls.

    How do you feel about it? Are you in need of a hug? A fluffy teddy-bear hug? Awww, come here, baby…

    Hi, Sheena- Laura,
    The knowing to much and seeing stuff on the “intertubes” (a Nic word) worries me- invasion of privacy etc. especially when someone says did you see xyz on so and so’s fb page so us adults have to be discreet…your poor mom, she was probably thrilled- then crushed, sorry mom have a good day
