If you want.
And you're a glutton for punishment.
I have a Twitter account.
I also have two Facebook profiles, one for my alter ego and one for me. I think you can figure out who my alter ego is (you're talking to him).
What's more, I have two email accounts. Both are for the real me. No, I have no idea why. Okay, I know why. They were FREE. Come to think of it, Facebook is free, too, and I can't explain that.
As if that's not enough, I have two blogs. You're reading one. Uh, Penwasser Place...? My other blog is Just An Observation, a weekly verbal blather for the Philadelphia news organization. It's like Penwasser Place. Only with fewer pictures. And fewer uses of the term "frikkin'." And not a single picture of me sitting on a toilet. Because I'm classy, yo. Bitches.
Oh, Just An Observation also uses my real name, not my alter ego.
|Ken Lynch is Al Penwasser? What the hell? |
You mean now I have to tell people I'm Batman?
Well, you all can piss off.
|No, I'm Batman. |
You English punk.
And who the hell is Al Penwasser?
Not only that, I'm writing a book. Which I hope to finish before they're speaking of me in the past tense.
Yes, I have issues.
What I'm trying to say is that I do a lot of writing. Some of it is good and some of it...oh, who am I kidding? Most of it is crap, but since I'm not getting paid for any of this, screw it. There is a chance of me getting paid for my book, but I'd have a better chance of seeing Jesus in a nudie bar than spearing that white whale.

See? You can find anything on the Internet.
And you thought he was just on windshields.
So, what's my point? Oh, yeah. Twitter.
Why do I have a Twitter account? That's easy. I like the ease with which I can drop in this snarky little comment or that. If you're unfortunate enough to be one on my Twitter followers, you know what I'm talking about.
Recently, I've been more often replying (or "tweating," according to teenagers and people who live in their Mom's basements) to something on Twitter where in the past I would have put it on Blogger. So, if you're following me here, you've missed some hilarious commentary. Not from me, but from some pretty funny Twitter people like a guy called Steve Olivas (I don't feel like putting his link here. Mostly because I don't know how).
Anyway, I foresee a reduction in the time I spend here.
Not a lot, mind you.
After all, Twitter only gives me 140 characters. And, I just can't be that succinct on a regular basis.
Which should be apparent.
|I won't put this on Twitter, though. |
And you have my word on that.
