Hmmm...well, I guess "twittering" is NOT what I thought (you know, your mom told you it is normal, everybody does it, just do it in private.) That urban dictionary is becoming more & more useful. According to my daughter, it is "jank" that I even have to use that thing...sigh...

Denise: A) I just checked with the U.S. Department of Technological Innovation — and yes, you are listed in their records as officially being the last American citizen to find out what "Twitter" means. However, there are no comprehensive statistics for the rest of the world. B) It was really more like sex fired me. But I thought I'd try to save, er, face by turning it around.

A - Am I the last person on earth to know what "Twitter" is or means or... (I just found out what "blog" and "wifi" meant very recently) B - Brockman - quitting sex?? That is just crazy talk...why would you want to do the fine ladies of Portland such a diservice? Drink some blood and get to work!
