Flutter: The New Twitter?

Tenty six characters...snort...I can't even handle only having 140.

But hey, dropping out of an ivy league school to pursue this dream, well this sounds totally worth it ;-)

I may quit my job and create Swatter where it's only 4 characters because 0.4 seconds is how long it takes to swat a fly and that's even faster that a hummingbird's wings AND a bird tweeting.

"Shutter. Without the vowels"...

Hey! She's stealing MY niche!

sherri said...

I've been fluttering for awhile now. Many thought it was just typos, but as it turns out, I was WAY ahead of my time.

Yeah, I'm a techno genious.

Quit laughing. It's rude.

Wendy said...

But Sherri, it's only laughing in 26 characters! How rude can that be?

Helen said...

Bth, gd n. M t.

This is going to put our "140-character-no-more-no-less-NtG" over the virtual edge.

But we will all understand the abbreviated words, thanks to Sherri's uncanny schooling.

WHS

Wendy said...

Hee-hee! I said "but" in a comment to Sherri...

Helen said...

OK. Can't even imagine GPS flutters about when I pee. What a fascinating life people must live to find that interesting.
Helen walks to coffee pot.
Helen pours coffee.
Helen takes milk in coffee.
Helen walks to computer.
Helen sits at computer.
Helen walks to bathroom.
Helen pees.
Helen checks if mom is awake.
Helen makes breakfast.

Multiply that by all of us.
Yes. I know this is satire.
I gotta go pee now.

Helen said...

Bth, bt yr tng!

Mrs. Sherri said...

Wendy- laughing in 26 characters is still rude- just shorter...and don't start with the short jokes either. And yes, I saw where you were making a "but/butt" reference and you were laughing about that too.

Since Candy says I've helped teach everyone the abbreviations so helpful in the twitter/flutter community due to my "uncanny schooling", I would now like to be refferred to as "Mrs. Sherri" and gain the respect I derserve.
ALthough you all have been unaware, I have been used to teach you valuable lessons that would need. Yes, I'm that important. Just unappreciated.

And Katdish, don't call me a tool.

Nick the Geek said...

did you know you can select different size embed options on YouTube before copying the embed code? Just saying.

I don't need another thing to spend my time on. Seriously.

katdish said...

I swear, it was totally normal sized until I changed the cat in the sidebar! Nick's busy...

HUCKLEBUCK!!!!!!!!!

BETH'S HUSBAND, FRANK!!!!!!

Candace Jean July 16 said...

OK, so I sit in the DEN arprt hahaha-ing n mkng ttl foo o' slf.

When you have this much time to kill, you can do whole sentences.

Helen - you made me pee with that one.

NtG - did I sense a lil talkin' down to some old people here? Or perhaps a little passive-aggressive behavior? Just reading between the lines....don't you like to be needed?

Steph @Red Clay Diaries said...

You guys. It's Friday. My kids are home and hyper. I've been doing 43 loads of laundry. And I'm not even finished. I. do. not. have the energy to add vowels to all your comments. Please have mercy on meeeeeee! (whining)

Nick the Geek said...

'm s srry stph. pls frgv m.

Helen said...

Ktdsh, yr wsh s m cmmnd. by spmng SCL pst. Nt fxng vd. M dn't knw hw.

Steph, sorry. For what it;'s worth, I am still trying to figure out a couple of non voweled words Katdish used for Mr. Sherri.

Nick, way to go shouting out how wonderful Sherri is at SCL.

katdish said...

Translation: Also, Mrs. Sherri is a tool.

I can't translate the first part, as this is a PG blog (mostly).

Annie K said...

Helen, probably best to leave Katdish's unknown, unknown...

sherri said...

WHen Nick gets back here I'm kicking his "bootah-boo" (that's what my 3 y.o. great niece calls a a BUTT!)

I got an email warning that I was being dissed on there. Thank you ,friend.

sherri said...

word sherrification: a a butt = a*s/butt.

Nick the Geek said...

What, I didn't diss you. First I said I am sorry for the short jokes since you are so nice then I said you are wonderful Anyone see anything mean in that? Anyways, You couldn't reach my bootah-boo.

Katdish, I'd say this blog is PG-13 at best.

Wendy said...

Sherri - See? Even you can't stop talking about your butt.

sherri said...

Nick- I'm strapping on my 9 inch stilettos (Otherwise known as my TOWER OF BABBLE HEELS) and I'll reach your bootah-boo alright!

I'm waiting for Big AL to come pick me up on the Harley, we're going out for a steak dinner, and a beuatiful bike ride. (He appreciates a good short woman) While cruising the highways, I'll be planning and scheming about how to find you.
I've got my leather on, and I always feel TOUGH when I'm in leather.

*Oh, and before I put my leather on, I called my mom and tattled on you. I think she left a message for you on SCL.

sherri said...

And Wendy- you're right. I can't. It's taking over my life!

sherri said...

And yes, I saw all the typos (aka "flutter lessons"). Don't mess with me. I'm in my leather mode.

I think I found all the vowels you guys have been dropping.

Nick the Geek said...

SB,
That's like half the vowels at best, you'll have to keep looking.
