Things That Make You Go Eeouwch!

February 15, 2009

Oh dear has it been that long? I’ve been busy. Busy fighting my creative demons and creating you see. Actually I’ve been really busy on twatbook and twitter too if truth be known! I joined Twitter bloody ages ago – even before Stephen Fry who is the Lord Emperor of all that is Twittle. He even made me his friend after I commented on one of his twittles or twits or tweets or whatever they are called so I must say I am truly twittily honoured. There is something quite radically comforting and useful having to microblog in 140 characters or less. You can follow me at twitter if you so desire – I’m @rockmother not surprisingly. Don’t all rush at once!


Aagh – take the scary lady with her record-breaking talons away – away I tell you! Despite the fact Lee Redmond has been rather admirably been growing her nails for 24 years at a combined length of just over 28 foot they are (in my opinion) disgusting! They make my toes curl – in the same way droopy hairy ears do. And as for varicose veins – I have been known to publicly retch on catching sight of some poor unfortunate’s knotted calves. Ironically, Lee the nail lady from Salt Lake City (weirdo Mormon capital of the world) who looks like a cross between an alien and Bill Bailey has just lost her extra-long nails in a terrible car accident. I wonder if she will grow them again? How on earth has she managed to function all these years with nails that long? I would go to youtube as I am sure there is footage of her at home showing us how but someone else can do that and report back please.

On a lighter note – hurray – a new rockmockumentary is coming out soon – arise Anvil! Yes – real life Spinal Tap takes to the road in the form of long-forgotten and very loud Canadian rock band Anvil. You can watch the trailer here:

Yarp! Ciao!

    someone has to ask it so I’ll be the one – how do you wipe your backside with nails like that?

    Apart from a couple of the celeb ones, all those blogs are written by men. Jesus.<br/><br/>(Not actual Jesus, he didn’t have a blog.)

    He had a travel blog. <br/><br/>Christ On A Bike.<br/><br/>I don’t understand Twitter. I feel really stupid.

    I think I’m beginning to understand Twitter now, though it is a bit odd as I keep looking for comments from other Twitterers on my site. Thanks for the advice, Romo.

    GSE – actually I DID go to youtube and have a look – somehow she manages to do everything with those nails including I do suppose wiping her bottom. Her nails are the stuff of nightmares – I am afraid to go to sleep tonight.<br/><br/>Patroclus – I know! Jesus – he’s probably on Twitter though ;-)<br/><br/>Geoff – oh you do understand Twitter – I can see you do! Are you on Tweetdeck yet – I never usually enthuse about applications or apps as those that are in techy world call them – but I must say – Tweetdeck is the business when it come to all things twitness. There is Twitpic too – for uploading pictures to go with your twits..

    That woman looks like an alien extra from Star Trek (sixties version). Her poor husband’s back must be ripped to pieces!

    Savmarshmamama – I know the feeling! xx<br/><br/>Dickley – you can follow your beloved Lily on Twitter you know….<br/><br/>Momo Madster – where are you then? you need to follow and be followed x<br/><br/>My Darling Violet – have been worried about you again and here you are – hurray! x<br/><br/>Chazza – oh yes – half term – lovely (I guess you can’t see my facial twitch and hear my nervous hysterical laughter?)<br/><br/>Isters – I know – freakoid or what? I am sure her husband is a little relived to say the least – he can take the flak jacket off now.

    Yes, rockmum, now I know, I wasn’t born to follow.<br/>"Just like that!"<br/><br/>I got a few email followers trying to sell me something or other, then I knew it was a multi million add shop (big brother is watching you kind-a thing)<br/><br/>My Doc. says I’m doing OK, but to stay away from twitter till I’m ready for it (get my credit card back)<br/>;-) 😉 😉 😉

  15. Twitter sounds like too much fun for me. Think I’ll stick with Spaceblog.

  16. savannah permalink

  17. Lily’s just a tease anyway. I doubt if I have a chance.
