Some Roses are Pink, Others Are Yellow, Welcome to the Friday Twitter Ho Down




Okay, so Twitter has decided to make my life more difficult. They no longer link responses so that I can follow between the conversations, which means that I couldn't go back and easily find the conversations some of these were from. Oh well...
Oh, and the repairman was NOT able to fix my furnace yesterday. We need a new circuit board.
And now, the "best" of Helenatrandom on twitter...

@weightwhat The repairman is here and he is fixing the furnace as we speak!

@katdish No shower for me until the furnace is on! TMI? Sorry...I'll put on some perfume..

I am so cold... http://bit.ly/1Sequ

@weightwhat YOO HOO! WENDY! COME ON OUT AND PLAY WITH US...we miss you...

@BridgetChumbley I bet @weightwhat could find a way to TWSS the word gesundheit!

@BridgetChumbley Yes. If only @weightwhat were here, she'd have us tweeting TWSS worthy comments in a hurry, wouldn't she?

@BridgetChumbley Thanks. The furnace repairman should be here shortly. I'm sure if I weren't careful, I could tweet something TWSS worthy/

@katdish Right now it is 52 degrees, but my furnace conked out last night. It is 66 degrees in the house..

I better go move around a bit...I think it has gotten even colder in the house....

@redclaydiaries Hi. No warmer yet. It will be a few hours before the repair man comes.

@pagan43 Beanbag socks are the homemade verion of the Bed Buddy™. Dry beans in a sock that get microwaved and then warm you up in bed.

@SBeeCreations Thanks for the invitation. The repairman will be here between noon and four.

@weightwhat I don't jog.... My ankles couldn't take it... OUCH!

@weightwhat I am pretty sure it is the blowers...TWSS

@weightwhat No fireplace. I am drinking herbal tea (I ran out of milk for coffee!) and heating beanbag socks in microwave for mom...

@weightwhat I am waiting for the furnace repairman.Believe it or not, I was not able to fix it myself by flipping circuit breaker repeatedly

Brrr...31 degrees outside, and I woke up to THE FURNACE ISN'T WORKING!!!!! Helen is not happy. Neither is Helen's mom, Helen....

@makeadiff21 I don't teach there anymore. I'm a stay at home daughter. There is no more opportunity to make helpful announcements..

@makeadiff21 Yeah...I'm sure the secretary there misses my helpful suggestions...

@BridgetChumbley We are innocent....Okay... a little...

@makeadiff21 I didn't know how to run the PA system.... :(

@makeadiff21 I mean, do you think Jennifer Lopez is really such a rare name that anyone would catch that it was made up?

@makeadiff21 I know. We are so innocent....

@makeadiff21 Oh yeah...the school secretary was afraid someone would snitch on her. I thought paging JLo would work though.

@weightwhat I even gave her alternatives like "Will Jennifer Lopez please come to the office immediately..Jennifer Lopez..." No dice..

@weightwhat Sweet dreams, Elvis!

@weightwhat I begged our school secretary to announce that over the PA when Sister Principal would go to a meeting off premises. She refused

#celebrityperfumes Rude by Kanye West

#celebrityperfumes Uh Oh Oh by Beyonce...

@VariantVal You are right. No response to links. I hope they will be coming back, and that it is just a temporary glitch.

@sarahmsalter Dang....I forget about the ho down when I start talking about my assetts...


@weightwhat More like connecting between the roses...

@weightwhat Don't you mean small? Small roses would daintify their surroundings...No? AAA...what do I know? I like multicolored lights..

@pagan43 I could live with either... Do you think it would need baby's breathe in between?

@weightwhat Trust me,I have the space for chrysanthemums and sunflowers, but I think roses, even rosebuds, would have a daintifying effect..

I have been checking out Airplane clips on Youtube. Man oh Manischewitz that movie is funny!

@pagan43 with a yellow rose on each cheek. The cheeks nearest the tramp stamp...

@pagan43 I am not a fan of needles... If I were, it'd be a pink rose tramp stamp (meaning in the small of my back)....

@redclaydiaries Actually, the size of your fingers is directly related to the proportion of alcohol you can handle...


@redclaydiaries That's how you measure.Put your3 fingers at the side of the glass,bottom finger at touching edge of bottom of the glass.Pour

@redclaydiaries Three fingers of scotch and two teaspoons of whiskey makes everything make more sense...

@weightwhat Uh, yeah...when reason has a sore throat and is drinking for medicinal purposes then, yes, we are the voice of reason...

@tracyyoungtv No milk., but @bryanallain is preparing grilled snuffleupagus.There ought to be plenty.You can share your cookies for dessert.

@bryanallain Snuffleupagus is better deep fried....so I've heard.

@katdish Great! Bob's birthday was Sunday. We went to see A Christmas Carol, then hung out at Barnes and Noble. Yeah. I like bookstores.

Don't be afraid. She doesn't really worship ducks. She is actually a Methodist. Checkout @pagan43 's blog http://wateritsirk.blogspot...

@pagan43 You think I am kidding, but can you ever truly be sure?

@pagan43 that I had been mistaken...

@pagan43 Ah....See, I thought you were a duck worshipper and hesitated to follow you, but checked out your twitter page often enough to see

@pagan43 Actually, not be a duck anymore may help. With a name like "pagan43" and a duck avatar, the implication is that you worship ducks

@pagan43 I agree with @redclaydiaries...you are much better looking than the duck...who was pretty cute, by the way...

@CandySteele Does Billy have a fan page on facebook? Did I join it? I should have....

As usual, totally random and hilarious.

As for convos, go to search.twitter.com and search @helenatrandom. It'll show every post that mentioned you. A little easier to skim and find people's responses.

One more thing: If you INSIST on keeping your jukebox, could you at LEAST put it near the top of the page? Every time I visit, music starts 10 seconds in and makes me jump. Forget scaring my dog; you're freaking ME out.

Thanking you in advance for your timely attention to this matter.

Steph is a wealth of information, isn't she?

I like random. My husband quit reading my twitter posts because he said they don't make any sense. You know, as opposed to my other posts...

Jukebox should play Lynn Anderson's "I Never Promised You a Rose Garden" lol
You had quite a week.

We shall all deny any complicity in all of the above,to cover our "backsetts"

Your ladies are quite a group of snappy witty
"repartaeers"

Very nice! The first part sort of feels like I'm reading coverage of Furnace Watch: 2009. :) It's so exciting- how will it all end!

You're awesome, Helen!

Innocent... *snort*

Tracy said...

Too funny!

Okay, how did I miss this post yesterday? Having to run around to appointments all day is no excuse. I'm going to send myself to my room now.
