Pic of a Twit
Please don't laugh, but yesterday I finally figured out how to upload a photo to Twitter using Twitpic. The first time I looked at Twitpic I must have been distracted or upside-down or sleep-walking, because it's about as easy as an application can be. Yesterday I cleared my desk and sat down with a cup of coffee, determined to figure it out, and it was like figuring out how to open an envelope.
This is the photo I posted. I hope you don't mind me posting it again here. I don't know if most of you follow me on Twitter. (There's a little birdie button over there on the upper left if you should choose to do so.) Even if you follow me, the chances that you were on at the moment I posted the picture are so slim that I don't mind posting it again.
I took the shot from my antique iPhone. My thought when I saw this was, I hope I never have to choose between natural light and bookshelves.
You know, when I was a kid, besides the fact that we
had no windows
walked to school ten miles in the snow,
made our own toys,
slaughtered our own chickens,
churned our own butter
made our own clothes out of burlap bags,
"twit" was something you called someone you thought very little of.
But I was Tweeter which, as I remember it, was quite another thing.
