I hadn’t done this in a while. I forgot the format for the initial tweet.

This is why I started tweeting a day early. Fancy food is expensive. Convenience food is expensive. Fancy & convenient is off the charts.

Not sure that the visuals added anything here.

“And so to bed is an expression often used by Samuel Pepys at the end of his day’s diary entry.” Wiki

Experimented with location for this tweet. Turned it off soon after. Didn’t like having my location automatically announced.

Another “missing” color. Again, not what I had in mind.

From here on, I get into a run of short &/or statistical tweets. Short commentary below, if you care to scroll past.

I never got the full story on this. I’m missing a mid-length, Saturday 3rd. However, I have a full-length, Sunday 1st, so I’m not stressing it. Also some thing about a trophy that wasn’t ready. They mentioned this during the ribbon presentation. Tigger didn’t want to stand, I couldn’t hear, & wasn’t taking a lot in. So, once again, I don’t have the full story. Either a trophy will show up or it won’t. I have the ribbon & the title. I’m good.

Judges’ cards day three: 1,0,3/6,10,10

The Overall Twitter Experience
As a tweeter, I started well but fizzled out. 3+8+8+6+8+4 = 37. Most of the later tweets are results, judges’ cards or schedule information. As I said in one the tweets, numerical posts were easy. Why no content tweets? Not sure. Did I have nothing to say? That can’t be possible, although I was stressed before my classes and tired after.

Part of the problem was mechanics. My Twitter app got stuck on my feed or some other page that still does not display all of my tweets. Other tweets went off into the ether and never reappeared.

Many of the tweets had photos in place of clever wordage. Maybe next time I’ll try Instagram.

Thank you for reading,

  1. Thank you. I wasn’t able to follow the tweets this time (fatigue, not technical problems) so glad to have the replay.

    You did good. You did excellently! You did amazingly!
