Sorta monthly tweet round-up
Yes, yes, I realize after two months I’ve slipped from my commitment to posting a best-of tweet round-up faithfully on the last day of the month.
It would be cool if I could say there was a huge outcry and people were demonstrating outside The Pond like it was some kind of blog Tahrir Square, but that hasn’t happened.
When it comes to my tweet round-ups people, I guess, basically just don’t care.
Who can blame ‘em?
You can catch up anytime at 8days2amish and I’ll be sure to put all the really good stuff -- or at least what I consider the really good stuff -- right here where everyone’s always welcome.
Later today I’m going to post what is the best letter I’ve received about my book before getting back to what for lack of a better word call “work” tomorrow.
Up next: When it’s okay to kill yourself after being the victim of a practical joke.
Hint: Never! Ever! Ever!

• Quick! Anyone recall the name of Viggo Mortensen movie where he's an ex-hoodlum who owns a small town diner and takes up fiddle? "History of Violins?"

• The 2nd most famous elevator company behind Otis is Schindler. Yes, there's a Schindler's Lift.
