Things I’ve learned from Twitter:

Posted in Twitter with tags , , on October 22, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

  1. Twitter is down sometimes more than 7 times briefly in my workday. I’ve actually named the Fail Whale after seeing it so many times. Hello Charlie!
  2. Having local strangers on your follow list sometimes turns into great friendships.
  3. Not all businesses are spam. Some are just letting you know what you’re missing if you don’t work locally. @in_gre_di_ent ½ Sammy of the day Turkey Avocado Club Shaved turkey breast, avocado, bacon, spring greens, Roma Tomato… (Seriously had me at “avocado”! Damn I wish I worked in Lawrence).
  4. Don’t judge others only on who they follow/tweet with and always remember that the only person that should be held accountable for being a dick, is the one being a dick.
  5. On any day of the week I know I can count on at least three people willing to entertain me with their tweets.
  6. Don’t ever piss off Sunflower Broadband.
  7. Hawks tweets less than he ever plurked.
  8. There is always a lunch planned somewhere in Lawrence, and I’m missing it.
  9. There happens to actually be *cool* moms in Lawrence, and I’ve found them on Twitter. Lawrence twits are anything but dull.
  10. Lawrence.com (@lcom) is a tease and will dangle concert tickets in front of my face.

Bonus: There will always be a Kanye West joke. 🙂

AND…. How could I forget this? :p RT @Luthi @Jells you forgot one: Luthi is super awesome and funny and stuff 😛

Twitter Toilet of Plurky Poo!

Posted in Social Media with tags , , , on October 20, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Dear Plurkers,

Please stop using Twitter as your toilet to which you are depositing your plurky poop!

Thank you,

Kimberlee

I know, I’ve been there.  I use to have my plurks heading over to Twitter too. That was before I realized how stupid that is. The point of social media is to actually be social. If you’re sending your plurks over to Twitter, but not checking Twitter, how the heck is that social? It’s not. You might as well be a bot or having a one-sided convo with yourself.

If it’s too much and you just cannot keep up with all your social media, then mayhaps don’t try to connect them all. I for one hate reading plurks on Twitter (since as you know I no longer use Plurk) and knowing that if I choose to respond to you on Twitter with a mention (@) that you’re never going to see it. So please just stop the madness!

I feel like a bitch for unfollowing people for this, so I guess I’ll just be the bitch… If I’m wrong, then tell me but answer one question for me: Why are you using Twitter in the first place if Plurk is where you are “socializing”?

Twitter blessings & social circus…

Posted in Real Life with tags , , , , on October 19, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Hawks was not kidding when he wrote his Revolution post yesterday where he said“Now all of a sudden, I am running into people at every event and all over town that are extremely wired into both lives that they lead, and it is fun to literally have an option for a social function any night of the week.”

Let me share with you our weekend via pics & minimal commentary…

Friday Night – Late Night at the Phog:

Bryan & three of the loverly KU dancers.

Full house at Allen Field House… This is how HUGE KU Basketball is. 16,300 packed the Fieldhouse to watch the late night practice!

Saturday – Baldwin City Maple Festival:

I made a story on Whrrl that you can see if you click here. For some reason I can’t ever get it imbeded into my blog posts. Boo!

Powered by Whrrl

Sunday – 23rd Street Brewery Pizza Party:

23rd Street Brewery offered all their Twitter followers a free one topping pizza last night. It sort of became a mini tweetup/pizza party. Hawks, me, Ashley, Jessica, Andrew, Travis, Zack, Briana and two other folks I can’t remmy all went. Jessica took that pic of me last night at the Pizza Party. I think that’s her thumb in it. LOL!

That’s my weekend in a nutshell. I’m thinking pretty soon Hawks & I are going to need more than a google calender to keep up with our social circus. It really has been a blessing, for me at least, to meet all these great people on Twitter. I finally feel like I fit in here in Lawrence… and it feels good!

Okay enough mushy shit. I haven’t decided yet if I want to switch Free State of Mind over into a real-life blog or not. We have Our Lawrence for that but I was thinking that this one might be more personal. It isn’t like we haven’t planted little seeds of real life here before. It seems sort of fitting since we named it “Free State” after me moving here to the Free State to be with Hawks.  I’ll let you know what we decide.

I think we’re done here…

If you haven’t noticed my presence on Plurk for the past couple days, it’s probably because I moved. Yup. I hadn’t put in my change of address to the internet post office, but it’s true. I’ve left plurk to go off in search of fortune & fame. Or at least something like that.

HawksRock & I have been having some good talks the last couple of days about reassessing where we put our time and energy. We literally have soooo much going on currently in our Real Fleshy Lives – like wedding planning, social engagements, tweetups, meetups & family fun stuffs. I don’t think we are gonna be on plurk or SL for a while… but never say never. Could be a break, a vaca, a hiatus, a sabbatical, could be forever, or whatev. Ya’ll know me though, I’m a social media junkie *taps the needle in her arm* and it would be a harsh detox for me to leave plurk completely without no other social outlet. Most of you know that we are on Twitter (if the right sidebar didn’t give it away first) and we’ve decided to mingle over there for awhile, we’ve started unpacking & hung a few pictures on the walls already. It’s sort of comfy there.

If you still want to catch up with me, feel free to get your ass on Twitter and find me. However a word of caution, I do talk a lot about real-life over there, so if this makes you queasy, dizzy, uncomfy, you develop a rash, or allergies, such as sneezing, watery eyes, and runny nose… please consult your virtual doctor immediately. Also if you have linked your plurk to your twitter, if you never check your twitter, I won’t/can’t respond to you.

Kissie Pops! Thanks!

So like a couple of things…

I created my October Blip Playlist which isn’t actually complete yet because… well, it’s only the 12th of October. You can check it here.

Last night was the Annual Lawrence Zombie Walk. I created a whrrl story but I’m still trying to figure out how to link to Rachel’s pics that she took. I’ll get it eventually. Until then… Click here.

My Plurk! My Rules! Mine! Mine! Mine!

People crack me up… seriously. Over the past year people have come & gone from my Plurk timeline. Sometimes they remove me, block me, delete their accounts or I remove them. I never ask people why I was removed, in fact I rarely know who I freaking lost on my timeline. Even though I will admit plurk is a huge part of my day, I don’t keep stats on people to figure out who removes me. Even if I did know, why would I ask? I got removed, no big.

Now back to plurk being a big part of my day… I use plurk differently than I use Twitter. Twitter is where I keep probably close to 200+ people that I follow that are “local” folk that I may occasionally hang with in real-life.

Plurk on the other hand is what I use for entertainment purposes. The majority on my timeline are SecondLife folk though I do have a few real life ones mixed in as well. I try to keep my plurk balanced & upbeat.

I balance it by keeping no more than 200 friends at any given time. I know me & beyond 200, I’m really not paying attention to everyone.

I keep it upbeat by removing those that constantly whine, bitch, moan, have consecutive bad days that they feel we should all hear about, have constant bad luck, depressing, boring and bleh!

So why is it that since plurk is such a huge part of my day that I should feel any guilt for removing people? That’s the funny thing, I don’t feel any guilt. Could you imagine if my friends & family did nothing but hang around me all day as Debbie Downers or if they bored me to tears? Chances are I would avoid them or become just as miserable. Well, on plurk I can remove them.

That is *my* prerogative so the next time you feel like attempting to guilt someone over an unexplained removal, save your breath. You wouldn’t like it if everyone you removed attempted to guilt you. Just move on.

Coolest Thing Ever!

Posted in Fashion, Fun & Games, Jelly's Closet, Uncategorized with tags , , , on October 5, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

I’m the first person to scoff at certain roleplay…

Vampires? Really? You are asking me for permission to bite me? In my sick & sometimes twisted Vampire fantasies, the vamps never ask, they just take me all romantically hard & stuff. There’s other RP that I could mention here & also spew my opinions about but then I’d just digress from telling you about the Coolest Thing Ever Ever Ever ever ever ever.

All over plurk I’ve been seeing “doll skins”. At first I was like “o-kay” and then I move on.  I’m not a big fan of lined doll skins. In my opinion dolls don’t have lines because they want to, dolls have lines because of function, they have to! (Yes, I know I am talking about dolls like they’re real, shup!) So if I’m going to be a doll in SL, I’m not going to have lines or buy a skin. Instead I’m going to find a cute updo hair style, wear my regular skin, throw on a tutu & get myself a wind up key… And so I did.

And I’m freaking adorable!

The thing about this key is that it was made to work with a sub collar for doll play. So you can’t just buy the Doll Key and expect it to work. You have to either buy a compatible collar or the “container”. Since it’s a proven fact that I do not make a good sub, slave or pet from past experiences, I went with the “container” (it’s located on the left hand side wall next to the Doll Keys). The instructions are a bit intense, and set up is a bit tricky. The good news is that Briggit & Peggy are awesome with customer service. Briggit helped me get my key up & spinning in no time and she explained to me exactly what I needed to do in terms I could understand.

So I haven’t even told you what I find to be the coolest bit about the key. First of all, you cannot wind yourself. Nope, you are at the mercy of others around you, or screwed if you’re alone. That’s my favorite part. When you aren’t wound, you’re slumped, cannot speak in general chat, key is not spinning, and you cannot tp. Your best bet is to IM someone & ask for a wind up. This is great for anyone looking to make new friends, don’t you think? What better ice breaker do you need other than “Hi I know you don’t know me but could you possibly touch the key on my back and wind me up?” Each wind up is good for 30 minutes so it could also help curb your need to shop for long periods of time.

As with most collars (which is the premise for the “container”, you get to choose a Master that can control you if you choose via blue drop down menu or command words. If you attempt to remove the key, your Master will be notified just like with any standard collar.

A lil from the notecard:

dollsit  (forces the doll to sit)

dolloff  (Shuts the doll down manually)

dollwave  (make the doll wave)

dollfollow (makes the doll follow you.)

There’s much more but since I’m blogging from work & Hawks isn’t my errand boy, you’ll just have to go check it out for yourself. Below are the SLURLS to the things I used to put this look together & make it functionable…

Doll Key & Container: Brigitt and Peggy’s store
A little shop with Amethyst collar plugins, Clockwork Doll keys, Jewelry, Dungeon Torches, piecing gag, collars, Land Rentals on the waterfront.

AO: ANAMATIONS – Music Dancer AO

TUTU: Sn@tch – Murder Ballet

Shoes: Shiny Things – Ballet flat – black

Hair: Truth – Rose – bubblegum

A big thank you and shout out to the one & only Inclinations Moody who had this look first and was nice enough to let me copy her.

Thank you also to HawksRock for grabbing the SLURLS for me and being my new more leniant Master.
