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”?

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!

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.

Who’s Bad!

Hawks will be writing an official post on last night’s Ultimate Michael Jackson Tribute Band performance over on Our Lawrence… but until then I could not let these plurkiful quotes go to waste.

HawksRock asks

so when attending an MJ tribute band concert, is it proper etiquette to wear the glove on your right or left hand?
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:56 JeℓℓyBean™ is sooo smooth, it’s almost criminal.
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:56 Daila Dump the glove! :-P
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:57 JeℓℓyBean™ says Please do not wear a glove.
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:58 HawksRock I am really going more for the white Jackson HISstory time frame, cuz I could never pull off the early black jackson days…
  • August 20, 2009 at 17:59 Daila Jelly and I both agree.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:00 JeℓℓyBean™ says (lmao)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:00 HawksRock well Jell might need to wear gloves to carry around the big wind turbine I need to blow my hair the right way… while I lean into it.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:01 Tymmerie says you wear the glove on the opposite hand from where the young boy who is your date is standing. Per Miss Manners.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:01 HawksRock (lmao) Tym!
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:03 JeℓℓyBean™ says lol
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:04 Daila omg I can actually picture Jelly carrying around a wind turbine…. If you’re going to do it, I guess you might as well do it right…
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:04 Daila I may be changing my opinion on the glove… (unsure)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:05 JeℓℓyBean™ says ahem – I won the tickets, if this is going to embarrassment extremes, I can’t take him. I have friends in town now, and I don’t wanna get
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:05 JeℓℓyBean™ says shunned, ya know? lol
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:08 HawksRock If they aren’t Thrilled, then you just tell em to Beat It because a little Off the Wall isn’t really Bad, cuz I am not that Dangerous.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:09 JeℓℓyBean™ says omg – ok kudos for that one, I almost pissed myself with (lmao)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:10 HawksRock actually I kinda embarassed myself with my knowledge of his discography… (blush).
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:11 Daila Hawks you are soooo good! I’m impressed!
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:13 HawksRock but but but you haven’t even seen the wind turbine yet… (tears)
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:14 Daila Okay I’ll rephrase that last plurk.
  • August 20, 2009 at 18:14 Daila I am slightly impressed, but I will be very impressed when I see the wind turbine!
  • August 20, 2009 at 22:56 JeℓℓyBean™ says
  • August 21, 2009 at 01:03 Adam My Liberian Girl is so Bad, yet Another Part of Me. When I looked at the Man in the Mirror, I knew I was a Smooth Criminal, yet she was…

Hey Dumbass!

Posted in FYI with tags , , , , on August 19, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

Apparently not everyone gets this, so let me point out that this *here* is a blog post, on a blog (Free State of Mind).

On the right navigation bar is not a blog, it’s just a directory of feeds and keywords.

Over there you’ll see:

JellyBean’s Twats

That happens to be my Twitter account (that also accepts my plurks) that is being fed to the side bar by magical elves every time I tweet (post on Twitter). Are you following?

It’s not a BLOG, it’s a “tweet” or as I like to call it a “twat”.

So please if you are going to stalk me online and then proceed to bitch about what you see when you stalk me, refer to what it is in the proper terms so I can make sense out of your ramblings.

Thank you!

Social Media Meltdown = OMGWTFBBQ INTERNET APOCALYPSE

Posted in Observations, Social Media with tags , , , , , , on August 6, 2009 by ♥JellyBean♥

You know you’re addicted when you keep hitting refresh hoping to finally get through instead of seeing that same error message. Edge of your seat anxiety. Mashable reported Twitter being down since early this morning. I’ve read about it being overloaded, a vicious attack, a bug, etc. I don’t know factual specifics, nor do I really, honestly and truly care to.

Just stabilize already baby, I’m pulling for you.

Apparently due to Twitter’s inaccessibility, Facebook was starting to struggle from the massive flood of people trying to get their social media fix. Woah! We *are* a bunch of junkies, aren’t we? Thank goodness for good ole’ plurk – not always faithful, not always reliable, and always toting around a karma mistress who happens to be a huge bitch, but Hey! it’s there today.

I know this post is just blah blah blah – sorry!

It looks like Twitter is back up, but not fully feeling 100% better. Also apparently the outage was caused by Denial of Service Attack (DDoS). I don’t even know what that is. But welcome back Twitter – feel better soon!

-Jell-

Who needs a Llama, when you can have a COW!?!

Posted in Observations, SecondLife® with tags , , , , on November 18, 2008 by ♥JellyBean♥

I’m the first to admit that drama entertains me like nothing else. Especially SL and more recently Plurk drama. Ya’ll know this already, right? Yah, I have the shirt. (see pic below). Well I have to admit I get a tickle when I start a fire that wasn’t intentional and I watch it go ablaze! Oopsie!

Let me share this plurk with ya…

JellyBean has decided that the only two normal guys in sl are HawksRock & Burgess. **shakes her head** This is sad.

The back story to this of course wasn’t added and that’s what mayhapsibly caused the ruckus. Let me explain before I go further so mayhaps you can find humor like I did.

As you know Hawks and I have sorta abandoned Free State to work on other projects like WoW leveling, Real Life, Ludo concerts, work, cuddle-fests, and of course the new blog – The SL Revolution. The Rev currently has 9 boomtastic revolutionary bloggers of truth, justice and the SL-way. However we’re lacking some testosterone over there something fierce.

I’ve kinda made it my mission to find male bloggers. Sadly I sort of have a strict criteria… I want male avatars that do not wear make-up, fem clothes, does not have a fem alt that gets more play time than their male, doesn’t know what color to wear that brings out their eyes, knows not to mix patterns and prints, and only blogs fashion. Not at any time, ever did I say that you shouldn’t live SL the way you want to, play it the way you want to or try to dictate anyone’s SLife.

Basically I really want to find what I would define as a RL stereotypical male but in SL that can write eloquently and wear a shirt, any shirt, and possibly shoes. Hey I like a challenge.

Hawks & I were discussing a potential new male writer when it donned on me that Alex and Hawks are the only two male bloggers I know that fit my manly man criteria. Alex is too busy to join the Rev and Hawks is already there. So in making the above statement in plurk by using the word “normal” started a bit of a spark that led to flames that led to this post.

Here’s the rest of the thread that followed:

  • November 17, 2008 at 18:49 KDFrawg There must be more than that!
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:49 myg says Wow if you include Burgess, that *is* sad!
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:50 JellyBean says no KDFrawg. Either they play fem avatars, they’re gay or very uhh metro sexual. Where are the Paul Bunyan manly men?
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:51 JellyBean says LOL
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:52 Willis™ says or they’re emo psychotics! Don’t leave those ones out
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:52 KDFrawg They’re hanging out with oxen…
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:52 Thema you need to meet a few more people, methinks -D but you’re not far off
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:53 Teeg says in SL, the Paul Bunyan guys are probably dressed like Babe, the blue ox.
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:53 AlyshaRenn thinks she should make a manly man in SL just for JellyBean
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:53 JellyBean says lol
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:54 JellyBean says thema show me one guy in SL that can write eloquently, does NOT have a fem av/alt and doesn’t wear chick clothes. -D
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:58 Arbs says I’m surprised you found two -P
  • November 17, 2008 at 18:59 JellyBean says no shit, right!
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:01 HawksRock says there is a real dearth of quality men’s writers out there who don’t turn their blog pink, or spend over 1/2 their time as a female.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:02 JellyBean says lol
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:08 Bone is not sure whether he should be insulted by this plurk or not.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:16 JellyBean says let me know what you decide. -P
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:18 Bone will do.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:22 Baron has only appeared as a woman when SL has ruthed him.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:23 JellyBean says really Baron? Do you have a female alt? You might be added to my list of 2 -)
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:25 Baron No female alt.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:26 Baron tries to find decent tasteful masculine clothes, too . . . but that’s not always easy ;-)
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:37 Bone thinks the criteria for being “normal”, as defined by this plurk, is far too restricting.
  • November 17, 2008 at 19:39 Baron is boringnormal
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:06 Kavar doesn’t understand what sexuality has to do with A. being normal or B. Writing- gay does not mean flaming drag queen by default
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:06 JellyBean says lol hey I’m open to normal of other people’s specifications so long as there is manly man in there somewhere.
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:14 Willis™ has a manly man in RL who won’t enter SL… maybe hes worried it’ll demacho him! (unsure)
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:22 Bone There’s not exactly a whole lot macho things to do in SL.
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:23 Bone Except for maybe shooting shit and driving vehicles. Both are done better in other online games.
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:25 JellyBean says Kavar sexuality has a lot to do with it and gayness does not. Say I’m looking for a guy to write like a guy not a chick, then chances are..
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:26 JellyBean says I will need a guy not a chick, right? testosterone and estrogen ARE two diff things
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:34 Chestnut the thing is everyone has a bit of both estrogen and testoterone. So your manly guy has estrogen too. Just sayin
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:37 JellyBean says lol ty Chestnut. Okay so more specific, you can have estrogen but I’d prefer you have considerably more testoterone. -D
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:53 Kavar had I been talking about sex male/female. I would have said sex… I said sexuality referring to being gay, and only because
  • November 17, 2008 at 20:54 Kavar it was reading like a lame sterotype
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:18 JellyBean says Kavar Ah ok, well I appreciate you coming all the way over here to clarify that -) ty
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:21 Rosie attempts to pull everyone’s panties out of a wad…
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:21 JellyBean says hah
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:21 Rosie says where did Jelly say that gay wasn’t normal? Cuz I don’t see it?
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:22 Rosie says what I saw is her saying that she’d like to find a male (guy) man who had a manly male macho perspective…
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:23 Rosie says to blog. As for sexuality… I do believe you, Kavar, brought up sexuality and when Jelly responded to you, she was not talkin about…
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:23 Rosie boinkin, but was using the word in the same manner you were
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:25 KDFrawg What the hell do you want with a “normal” guy, anyway?
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:25 Kavar lol ok.. mayb we aren’t reading the same plurk.. I see jelly say there are two normal guys in sl, KDFrawg says there must be more then that
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:26 Kavar then the responce is .. no KDFrawg. Either they play fem avatars, they’re gay or very uhh metro sexual. Where are the Paul Bunyan manly men?
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:26 Kavar what exactly was that ment to mean?
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:26 JellyBean says lol KDFrawg. “Normal” seems to be a minority word here
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:26 Rosie says lol yea I’m reading it too, but it’s born of sheer frustration… what she should have perhaps said is not that she wants a “normal”
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:26 Rosie says “guy” but a “stereotypical” macho man
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:27 Rosie but then that would mean that she defines Hawks and Alex as macho… and uhhh no. Sorry.
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:29 Bone So the list has gotten smaller!
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:30 Rosie says hell forget it I don’t even know what I’m talking about anymore… lemme just say that we are looking for different perspectives…
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:30 Rosie blog
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:30 Rosie *on the blog
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:30 Bone I still maintain that macho manly men wouldn’t have enough to do in SL to maintain their interest.
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:31 Rosie says well there are chicks
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:31 Rosie what was it in that other plurk?… Think like a guy…. do I have sex with it, play with it, or eat it?
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:32 KDFrawg JellyBean, go forth and write a post in which you define many man, in both RL and SL.
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:32 KDFrawg Sorry, manly men
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:32 Rosie says ok really I gotta go on that note… cuz that just came out totally wrong
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:32 Rosie says bai!
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:33 Shelly hmm..I’ve met quite a few guys that don’t spend half their time as females, write seriously interesting, wonderful stuff and I’ve never seen
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:33 Shelly them in a latex, fishnets or skirts.
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:39 JellyBean says kdfrawg I think I shall take this plurk and create a spin off t.v. show called the Bold and the Beautiful
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:41 KDFrawg o. you mean simultaneously. -)
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:41 KDFrawg and in tights.
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:42 Siobhan says sounds yummy
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:42 Bone feels discriminated because he wore some dresses (with fishnets too) for comedy’s sake. '-(
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:44 JellyBean says lol boner
  • November 17, 2008 at 21:44 JellyBean says Imma stop there lol
  • November 17, 2008 at 22:21 Daila boner you are manly enough for me : )
  • November 17, 2008 at 22:25 Bone Daila to the rescue!
  • November 17, 2008 at 22:44 Winter wonders if he is now somehow less of a man in all your eyes now because he takes himself “un-seriously” enough to have a pink blog …
  • November 17, 2008 at 22:45 Winter … wear fishnets and be enough of a metrosexual to give a shit about how he looks?
  • November 18, 2008 at 01:47 myg says Jelly, you are teh queen of controversy! Way to go! (tongue)
  • November 18, 2008 at 02:02 JohnnyRyall if I were ther I’d be normal…..oh…wait…never mind….
  • November 18, 2008 at 02:03 JohnnyRyall I was actually wondering cam you get skin that is fat and ugly…..and a stained wife beater…cause if I was there that’s what I’d want….
  • November 18, 2008 at 02:03 JohnnyRyall there’s too many beautiful people there…it needs some balancing
  • November 18, 2008 at 03:16 Kenzie =o.O= wishes to skip over the “normal” men and go for the interesting, un-normal ones (they tend to smell better)
  • November 18, 2008 at 04:34 JellyBean says hah ty myg I aim to please ya know
  • November 18, 2008 at 14:18 Silverdrake adds my 2cents that the supposedly “manly-men” in SL are really women acting out a fantasy of a stereotype.
  • November 18, 2008 at 14:21 Burgess eats drama for breakfast. Mmmm, tastes good.
  • November 18, 2008 at 14:26 Burgess says wow, you really stepped in it here, kiddo.
  • November 18, 2008 at 14:27 JellyBean says lmao did I? I think I made a statement and plurk peeps got panties in a pinch LOL
  • November 18, 2008 at 14:30 Burgess ok, you threw the grenade then -P
  • November 18, 2008 at 18:26 Bone OMG! Now you’re telling us that normal guys don’t wear panties!? I give up!
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:50 JellyBean says lol no boner, please continue to freeball. I was just informed that this plurk thread was viewed as male bashing. (rofl) Sorry, but no
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:50 JellyBean says I was not bashing males, just looking for one with certain non-traits, I guess…
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:51 JellyBean says 1. no fem av/alt
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:51 JellyBean says 2. not metro sexual and 3. is the stereotypical male
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:52 JellyBean says if you were offended, it’s not my issue that you misread, misinterpreted or turned it into something more.
  • November 18, 2008 at 19:53 JellyBean says be happy with who u are, but know that u either do or don’t fit into the category i was looking for. kkthnxbai
  • November 18, 2008 at 20:10 Burgess oh jeez, now you’re explaining and being reasonable. But I have faith that people who want drama will still misinterpret…
  • November 18, 2008 at 20:13 JellyBean says well I love drama too… trust me this plurk has me rolling with tears. I think I’ll start a new one about how it’s ok for “those” …
  • November 18, 2008 at 20:13 JellyBean says to stand up and say HERE I AM but when that’s not what I was asking for they cry and prove my exact point!

So to those that had a cow, got offended, de-friended me, or went to cry on their own thread… I never said DO NOT BE YOU! I said, you are not what I am looking for. I’d hate for someone to tell me I couldn’t have pink hair in SL because I don’t have pink hair in RL. It’s the same fucking thing. How-fucking-ever just as any employer looks for certain skills, or a modeling/acting agency looks for certain appearances, I am looking for a, and heaven forbid I use the word ‘normal’, a regular guy who possesses more gruffness and he doesn’t have to smell nice. Last time I checked SL still hasn’t become scratch-n-sniff.

That is all, thank you.
