Anderson Bedin – Mystery Man?

Anderson Bedin

Anderson-5

The last few weeks pictures of this gorgeous, hunkalicious guy have been posted on a number of the Facebook Sites I follow.  The pics have also been posted on Tumbler.  But no one seems to know anything about him except his birthday which is posted on his Facebook page.  www.facebook.com/dudibg1/photos

He posts no other info on FB.  But he has quite a fan base…5,000 FB friends and almost 600 followers.

Anyway, a friend sent me his picture and said she thought he would be a fantastic romance novel cover model.  I agreed and told her I would do some cyber stalking and see what I could find out.

Google brings up another Anderson Bedin who has a FB page, a twitter account, and a page on Pinterest. But he’s definitely NOT our beautiful guy.  Nope, there was Nothing.  Nada.  Zip.  Zero.  Zilch.  Naught about our guy.

I contacted Carly at Heart Breakers and Soul Shakers  (www.facebook.com/HeartBreakersandSoulShakers ) she couldn’t find out anything about Anderson either.

Well, guess what.  I suddenly find myself in possession of some basic information.

Anderson’s grandparents came from Italy to Brazil where he was born.  He has duel Italian/Brazilian citizenship.  He is 20 years old and lives in Bento Gonçalves, not far from Porto Alegre.  But says he doesn’t like it there and he wants to move to the USA.

Anderson describes himself as “an enterpriser, musician and model aspirant.  I’m owner of two stores, singer of a metal band that will be released in 2015, and waiting next year to maybe sign a good model contract.”  He also says he wants to act in films after he gets the modeling thing going.

Love that smile…

Anderson-4

Anderson’s native language is Portuguese, but he speaks Spanish and English pretty well also.  In his free time he works out at the gym and does professional things to further his career.  He expects to make a final decision as to whether or not to move to the USA within the week.  If so, he plans on going to the San Diego area by December.

He is a very pleasant, upbeat young man with big dreams.  He has thought long and hard about his life and career and is definitely headed in the right direction.

I predict that we will be seeing and hearing from and about Anderson a lot in the near future.  Let’s hope so…

The Orca King – book review

I was struggling over the weekend for a subject for my blog today.  Then low and behold I found this great book review on Smart Bitches Trashy Books.  I just couldn’t keep it to myself so I decided to re-blog it.  It’s a little long but hilariously funny and well worth the read.

wale

I was browsing through my library’s online catalog of audio book downloads when I stumbled across The Orca King by Darragha Foster. I am not a huge fan of a paranormal romance, but when fate puts an erotic orca-shifter novella in front of me, I am not about to pass that up.

It turned out to be the craziest of crazy sauce books I’ve read in a long goddamn time.

The Orca King is a 72 page book about a Native American orca-shifter named Tamanass “Big Tom” Tyee aka Chief, who is waiting for one true love to be reincarnated. While he’s doing that waiting he’s spending his time split between living as a man and as a rogue orca (one who doesn’t belong to a pod) and inseminating females (both orca and human). His seed keeps the pod/tribe strong, you see. Also his penis allows you to time travel (more on that later).

Now first of all, there is no orca-on-human lovin’ in this book, so you can put that fear right out of your mind. There is a dream sequence where the hero and heroine sixty-nine in the ocean, which is goddamn impressive if you ask me. I can’t even have sex in the shower without feeling like I’m drowning.

The book opens with Marian, the heroine, about to embark on a whale-watching tour.  She won a vacation to a small island and the whale watching is part of the package. Marian is reflecting on her feeling of ennui and that her life, particularly her love life, just isn’t working out. She’s also horny.

On the whale watching tour, the group is fortunate to see a large rogue orca male called Ghost Father. Ghost Father is believed to be about 100 years old. He doesn’t belong to any pod but periodically shows up to mate with female orcas. Everyone is in awe of Ghost Father, especially Marian who feels drawn to him, exhilarated.

Marian could feel the beastie’s the presence […], smell his salty aroma. She could taste the salt spray on her lips. He looked at her as if he could see right through her.

Then the whale does the unexpected. He offers the boat a dead salmon, which is believed to be a courting gift. Marian has the idea that they have to accept the salmon, so they take a net and pull the dead fish from the water. Then Ghost Father rolls over and shows everyone his whale erection.

Yes, I actually just typed “Ghost Father rolls over and shows everyone his whale erection” in a review. You’re welcome.

Carrie S, who is now the Smart Bitches Science Officer, went on a Google expedition and discovered that whale penises are prehensile. Now I am disappointed that Ghost Father didn’t offer Marian the salmon with his penis, which would have been a more impressive gesture, quite frankly.

Anyway, Marian gives the salmon back, Ghost Father has sex with a female orca in front of the boat like he’s showing off, and then everyone goes on their merry way.

Marian is still overwhelmed by the experience and still horny.

She whispered, her arms still outstretched, “Ghost Father, you are magnificent.”

Now, back in March I also went on a whale-watching tour where I got to see some whales up close. I can say that I was feeling several things at the time:

1. awe at seeing such an amazing animal up close
2. nausea from being in a Zodiac in the ocean, bobbing around and
3. terror that the breaching whale was going to swamp the boat. I don’t believe arousal entered into it at any point.

To be fair, the whale we saw breaching was a calf, so maybe if it was a studly, older, George Clooney whale I would have been turned on, but I doubt it.

Anyway, Marian is still thinking about Ghost Father when she’s driving to dinner that night. Her car breaks down in the woods (where even the trees look like penises) and she is helped by a handsome Native American stranger who goes by “Chief.” While they wait for her swamped engine to cool (is that a thing engines do? I legitimately don’t know) they get to talking and Chief is all mysterious and full of Yoda-like vague advice about her path in life.

Then they go for a walk in the woods and overcome with desire they knock boots on a magical rock. It’s the best sex that Marian has ever had:

He exploded within her, filling her with an ocean of love and hope.

AN OCEAN OF LOVE AND HOPE.

That’s gonna be drippy.

When Marian wakes up, she’s in her car smashed into the front of a tree. She thinks she dreamed the whole smexing of the hot dude on the magic rock. She goes to the doctor because…car accident duh, but when she gets there she finds she has bruises on her back from the hot rock smexing. Also her lady business feels tingly.

The doctor is worried that someone raped Marian while she was unconscious after the accident and wants to do a rape kit, but Marian knows the truth. She really did meet Chief and they really did have a spiritual/genital connection.

“Whatever he did to me, whatever he left inside me, I want to keep.”

IT WAS AN OCEAN OF LOVE AND HOPE, MARIAN. WE JUST WENT OVER THAT.

Then Marian learns about this legend of an orca-shifter and how he got a local woman pregnant 100 years ago and how she jumped off the hot smexing rock with her baby when he abandoned her, and she’s all upset. Then there’s a scene with a Native American fortune teller called Granny (“Granny” and “Chief,” great), and Granny tells Marian she (Marian, not Granny) is pregnant and the re-incarnated spirit of Chief’s long dead love, and yeah, Chief is sometimes a whale, be cool with it.

When Marian meets Chief again he tells her he’s been waiting for her to be reborn again so they can be in love, and he didn’t abandon her 100 years ago and he can take her into the past and show her—with his penis.

Yes, the magical time travel device in this book is not a blue police call box, but his wiener. And it has to be inside of her to work.

Look, if some dude came up to me and was like, we can travel through time, but only by having intercourse, I would get the bear mace…unless… Yeah, if it was the 10th (11th?) Doctor as played by David Tennant, I’d probably go for it. Probably. Totally.

So then we also get the story of Chief and Marian’s past lives, and then Marian has to decide if she can love the whale-shifter she apparently loved 100 years ago and have his baby.

So this book is a whole lot of shifter-reincarnation-time-travel-penis crazy sauce thrown into 72 pages.

Now, I gave this book a C – because it’s completely batshit insane, but it’s not a bad book. It creates a mythology and sticks to it. I thought it was waaay too much shifter-past-life-time-travel to shove into a short book though. It was almost overwhelming how quickly things moved and how fast Marian (and the reader) had to process. I thought there was enough substance there for a book twice this length.

I also didn’t think we got a good feel for Chief. He shows up as a mysterious handsome stranger in both Marian’s life and in the flashback scenes where she is Mary Katherine. She’s inexplicably drawn to him in both lives, but aside from being hot and mysterious, I didn’t get any sense of why these two people would fall in love aside other than some supernatural connection. There was a lack of depth on Chief’s part that left this story less fulfilling that it could have been.

I personally couldn’t deal with all the waxing poetic about the whale-salt-smell and penis majesty, but I’m not into shifters or cetaceans, so I didn’t expect to be. I did appreciate and revel in the absolute batshit crazysauce that was slathered all over this baby, though.

Now, I was bummed to see that there’s a sequel to this book The Orca King II where Chief falls for a dude named Devon because aren’t Chief and Marian soul mates? I just read about salty orca penises because you told me they were soul mates! In fairness I haven’t read The Orca King II so maybe it’s explained.

But I will not read The Orca King II because the summary on Amazon includes a warning about “Orca whale and sea serpent sex play.” No thanks. I draw the line at a time-travel-penis.

Funny as this review was, I’m just not into shapeshifting, so I probably won’t be reading that book.  Can’t imagine anyone wanting a shapeshifter when there are real guys like this floating around out there.

MysticCowboy

This is a book I bought mostly because of the picture on the cover.  It also got great reviews.  I’m about 1/3 of the way through reading it – I will let you know.  But, I can’t seem to find out who this model is.  I think it looks a lot like Umid Yeldashev, or possibly Leon Garcia.  It’s supposed to be a stock photo, and has been used on several book covers.  Does anyone out there know who this model is?  Anybody?  Let me know….

Social Media

My Idea of Social Media

vintage-social-networking

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Reality

I find myself in need of several social media platforms.  I don’t like the idea.  I don’t like social media.  But if I am going to publish a book, I’m told I need social media.  Well, not to get it published.  To get it sold to hundreds of thousands of millions of people who are eagerly awaiting its release.

So, being technologically disadvantaged, I decided to take a four week social media class at the community college.  It’s not really a college class.  It’s a community interest class.  And it’s not really four weeks either.  It’s four Thursday evenings.  For an hour and a half.  But WTH, six hours of my time to learn about five social media platforms.  I figure if I can learn all that, it’s worth it.

I am supposed to be able to learn Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, Pinterest, and Tumbler.  I actually have accounts on all those sites.  I just don’t know how to use any of them except Facebook.  I can log into Tumbler, but can’t go anywhere after that.  I love looking at all the pictures on Pinterest, but can’t figure out how to set up a board so I can post my own pictures.  A friend’s nine year old tells me she posts regularly to her Pinterest boards.  Really?

I told the kid across the street that I was taking this class and what I hoped to learn.  She said, “I could show you how to use all those sites.”

I said, “So I should have given you the $30.00 and been taught all this in the comfort of my own den?”

She said, “I would have done it for $25.00.”

She’s thirteen.  Sheesh.

So, I’ve gotten one class behind me and the next one is tonight.  Up until last week I could pretty much only read what my friends sent me on Facebook and make a comment.  Now I know how to post to my own timeline and how to share.  I thought I had learned to share in kindergarten, but that was my toys and maybe half my graham cracker.  Now I can share what someone sends me with all 23 of my friends.  I had 24 friends, but one person recently unfriended me.  She got mad at a relative and unfriended everyone he was related to.  I need to figure out how to get more friends.  www.facebook.com/katie.morningstar.71  Go there and friend me.  Please.

Not really.  But I follow so many other Facebook pages that it usually takes me forty five minutes to an hour, twice a day, to go through all the new posts to my Facebook page.  I’ll share some of my favorites with you so you too can follow them and spend half your day liking all the posts.

 

My very favorite is Michael Stokes Photography  www.facebook.com/MichaelStokesPhotography He also has a web site, and posts on Tumbler and Twitter – where he can post the more risqué photos not allowed on Facebook.  Check him out.  He takes stunning photos like this one…

Belly Tattoos

I have been seeing more pictures of hunkalicious guys with great belly tattoos.  I’m not sure why – but I just love them. Uh, love the pictures, love the belly tattoos…love, love, love… belly tattoo

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I don’t know who either of these guys are, but I drool anyway.

OK – what’s with these tats?  I love these, especially the one around his belly button.  This is Alejandro Corzo and there are tons of pictures of him if you Google his name.  I could only find one other picture of him (on his Facebook page) with these tattoos.  I hope this is a recent picture and they aren’t fake.  Anyhoo – he is a Spanish model and actor.  He has a website, is on twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and can be seen at Model Management.  Check him out. belly tattoo-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK – I don’t love ALL the belly tattoos.belly tattoo-4

Alex Minsky alex minsky-2

This is Alex Minsky.  A before picture.  One of the few, the proud, the brave.  A Marine.  Then in Afghanistan in 2009 a road side bomb almost killed him.  He was in a coma for over a month, and spent another year and a half in the hospital recuperating.  He had burns over much of his body and lost his right leg.  After discharge he turned to the bottle.  But sick and tired of being sick and tired, he found his way into a gym…and a new life.

 

After a lot of workouts and a lot of ink, he was approached by someone asking if he had ever modeled.  Alex thought it was a gay guy hitting on him.  No really…that’s what he said in the interview ( www.queerty.com/10-things-to-know-about-model-alex-minsky-20130403 ).  But photographer Tom Cullis thought Alex had “a movie star face with wild ink and sweat”, and convinced Alex to model for him.

 This is Alex Minsky now…a fitness and underwear model.Alex Minsky

 

 

I think it is so cute that he has a tattoo on the sock that covers his prosthetic foot.  But what’s with that tattoo on his lower belly that says DON”T LAUGH.  Of course I haven’t actually seen what’s below that tattoo, but…

 

 

 Alex-Minsky-4

 

 

 

somehow, I’m thinking it isn’t anything to laugh at.

 

 

 

 Alex loves avocados, plays the guitar, and works out 4 hours a day to keep that body.  He also created quite a controversy when photographer Michael Stokes posted this picture on Facebook…

alex minsky-6Stokes was notified that it contained nudity or obscenity.  Facebook removed it, and banned him for 3 days.  In a statement of support over 4,000 Facebook fans reposted the picture.  Glad to say that Michael Stokes ( www.facebook.com/MichaelStokesPhotography ) and Alex Minsky are both back on Facebook.

 

 

 

 

Alex is on Facebook, instagram, twitter, and can be seen at Model Mayhem.  And guess what?  He even looks good with his clothes on. alex minsky-5 

 

 

 

Who woulda thought…?

 

 

 

 

Christopher Van Etten and his bomb dog Harley, who is now his service dog. Chris VE-1

 

 

Christopher Van Etten is a double amputee, injured in Afghanistan when two IED’s exploded in June 2012.  Like Alex Minsky he has come back full stride.  In October he hand cycled the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC and now he’s into…

 

 

you guessed it…modeling underwear.  Chris VE-3

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Chris is on Facebook, instagram, and twitter.  Chris VE-2

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 His mom says, “It’s a little weird to see my son pretty much naked all over Facebook, but I’m pretty proud of him.” ( www.bnd.com2013/11/09.2894542/we-cant-thank-this-community-enough )

 He also has a great sense of humor… Chris VE-5 

 

This was posted recently on his Facebook page.

 

 

 

 Alex and Christopher……thanks for your service, thanks for your sacrifice, thanks for your inspiration.  Semper Fi.

Top Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 4

Top Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 4

 Martin-1

                 The lady that publishes the 21st Century Skins Calender describes Martin Sensmeier as “drop dead gorgeous”.  Boy Howdy.  And also fantastically photogenic, stunningly beautiful, breathtakingly handsome…  How many more adjectives can I come up with?  As many as it takes.

 Martin-2

          Yeah.  Drop dead gorgeous says it all.

Martin grew up in Yakutat, Alaska and belongs to the Tlingit and Koyukon-Athabascan Tribes.  He spent five years working on an oil rig (can you imagine that) when a modeling opportunity presented itself.  In 2011 a series of modeling photos “went viral” and now modeling, acting, and motivational speaking gigs keep coming.  Yeah.

 He describes himself as adventurous, an outdoors man, and an avid basketball player.  He travels all over the world for speaking engagements.  Martin holds a liberal arts degree from Santa Monica College and can speak with a British accent.  He has also modeled for the 2011 21st Century Skins Calendar ( www.viewfp.com/ ) (www.facebook.com/pages/21st-Century-Skins-Native-Male-Calendar/)

            Martin is a member of the Native Wellness Institute which promotes the well-being of Native people through programs and trainings that embrace the teachings and traditions of their ancestors.

 He has a facebook page and posts frequently.  He has twitter, iphoneogram,  instagram, and has videos on YouTube.  He also has a wordpress blog, where he writes some poetry, but he hasn’t posted anything sense May.

 NirLavi[1]

             This is Nir Lavi.  He’s 30ish, from Israel, and has been modeling about 10 years.  Why haven’t I run across him before?  Uh, maybe because I wasn’t scouring the cyber universe like I have been the last few months…I’ve obviously been missing out on a lot.

 nir lavi 3

            Yesiree, another man with incredible blue eyes and a look that says “Excuse me.  Do you need CPR?  I can help with that.”  He models for high end fashion names like Armani and Valentino and does a lot of runway work.  Other than that…I don’t know.  He has a Facebook page, but has only posted on it once in the past year.

Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 3

Top Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 3

OK.  We all know this isn’t about the tattoos.  It isn’t about those hunkalicious abs either.  And it isn’t even about the fact that we know he is NEKID below the bottom of that picture.  No.  This is about those stunning, amazing blue eyes.  Well, maybe we like the tattoos, and the abs, and the NEKID part too…

This is Bobby Creighton.  Not hard to find him.  His name is everywhere.  He is a top male fitness and underwear model.  No really.  Underwear…  Google him.

I will even forgive him for not having long hair.  Just keep the bandana on Bobby.  We can always pretend it’s long.  Not actually having long hair puts you out of the running for the Number One spot.  Sorry.  But you’re still in the top ten.

Now we come to this guy.  He is all over the Internet, TV, magazines.  He has his own Web site, Twitter, Iphoneogram, Instagram, Facebook, You Tube videos.  Yesiree, Ash Armand is featured on the web site www.CowboysForAngels.com  and the Showtime reality series Gigolos (seasons 3&4).  He is a model, actor, and fitness buff of East Indian heritage with, of course, exquisite hair.  He is described as a love guru ‘who enjoys the beauty and mystery of this sensuous world’ and is also described as a ‘sensual warrior living to elevate others and the Self.’  I think the 60’s were just way too good to his parents.

Image

Even though he is defined in a number of ways, basically this guy is a Male Escort.  He charges outrageous amounts of money to spend time with you.  But don’t confuse him with a male prostitute. Noooooo.  Women pay him to escort them to fashionable events, go on vacation with them, to give them massages.  Did I mention that he’s also a masseuse?  They pay him to basically be super duper eye candy and spend quality time with them.  Any sex they may have is optional and outside that time/money arrangement.  And it’s totally free.  Yes really.  Absolutely free.  That’s what makes him NOT a male prostitute.  The sex is free, it’s his time you pay for.  Of course if I was paying that much money to spend quality time with him, whether I’m participating or just watching, he better be banging somebody.  Google him and read all about it.

Image

And that reality show Gigolos.  Well.  One reporter (go to www.ladysmut.com/tag/ash-armand ) tracked down one of the women that supposedly hired one of the guys (not Ash).  She said she was an actress/model and was hired, as in PAID, to ACT the part of a woman hiring the Gigolo.  She said she considered it just an acting gig and, oh yeah, by the way, the sex was simulated.  Sooooooo, in spite of the fact that they were rubbing intimate body parts all over each other, he was never really, actually, truly, in fact, inside her.  Whew!  That’s good to know.  I mean, seeing as it was prime time TV and all.

Anyway, back to Ash.  He is into modeling, acting, fitness, sex, healthy eating, meditating, zen, sex, dancing, reading, massage therapy, sex, martial arts, giving sexual advice, being an entrepreneur, sex, philosophy, yoga, traveling, sex.  OK, you get it.

His life partner, with whom he has an ‘open relationship’ attended the Institute for Advanced Human Sexuality in San Francisco (really? where else would it be?) and she is a sexual empowerment coach who helps people in areas of sexual issues.  On her Facebook page (Sexualiberator) she says that sex should always be connected to love.  Of course she is quoting someone else, but why would she put the quote on her page if she didn’t believe it?  And Ash is having sex with EVERYBODY, or at least anybody who will pay him for his time.  Does he love them all?  Isn’t that a little bit hypocritical?  I mean, if you want to screw everybody, and your life mate doesn’t mind, well, that’s OK with me too.  Just call it what it is.

Top Ten Most Beautiful Men – Part 2

So if Denzel and Moses are no longer Number One on my list, I need to start looking for a replacement.  I try Googling ‘Native American Male Models’ again, and also ‘Long Haired Men’ and a few other variations.  There are a whole bunch of new guys pictured there.  Are the elves at the North Pole custom making these guys one at a time, and Santa is distributing them around the world a few here and there?  Can I order one?

Pinterest.  (I now have accounts on both those sites, but damned if I know what to do with them.)  And I find this guy.  OK.  Excuse me a minute while my ovaries explode.  There. Breathing again.

             But I can’t find out who he is.  So every day while I’m on the computer, I spend some time looking for this guy.  I’m now looking for a model for the cover of my romance novel and this guy looks like he might possibly be Native American.  I tell myself I am doing research.  I spend hours on the Internet.  I think about him constantly.  I dream about him.  It took me a week to find out his first name is Tanji.  Love it.  Now I’m getting somewhere.  Another few days and I discover his full name is Tanji Islam.

             Tanji is of East Indian descent, lives in NYC, is a model and actor, and has probably the most spectacular male hair I’ve ever seen.  Google ‘Tanji Male Model’ and the first two web sites are his profile on Model Mayhem and his Facebook page.  Look at his pictures.  He has a variety of looks and his recent pictures don’t look a lot like his earlier pictures.  Nose straightened. Cheekbones more prominent.  Skin darker.  Hair – still incredible.  Think he’s had work done?  Drool over his pics, don’t forget to breath, and let me know what you think.

And Tanji…get on your Facebook page once in a while.  You haven’t posted anything since Mother’s Day.  You have fans.

          Yes, Tanji is definitely in the running for Number One Most Beautiful Man.  But then  there is this guy.

 

Don’t you just want to put your mouth on that tattoo and then see where it’s pointing?  This guy showed up about 2008.  There are maybe a couple of dozen pictures of him, most from the same photo shoot…and then he disappears.

St. Umid-1

            He shows up under two very different and unique names:  St. Umid and Humpemsquaw.  Now I can get behind St. Umid, sort of exotic, and memorable.  But Humpemsquaw – get real.  What I find even harder to believe is that some people, OK mostly women, out there in the cyber universe really believe that is his name.  There is some lively discussion about him on a couple of sites, the main one being www.vishstudio.deviantart.com   Most of the photos of him out there in the cyber universe were taken by Andrei Vishnyakov of said deviantart web site.  There are also a few pictures by Russian photographer Alex Krivtsov.

            Then on Sept. 28, 2010, someone set up a profile for him under the name Humpemsquaw on Model Mayhem.  They were on the site until Nov. 1, 2010 – 35 days.  No one has been back to update the site since.  On this site, it claims that he is Native American.  His profile on Model Mayhem says he doesn’t do nude shoots.  Buuuuutttt…Google St. Umid and the first web site that comes up has a picture of him, up front, up close, and personal holding onto his rather ginormous erection.  Umm, maybe it’s the camera angle.  No really.  Google St. Umid and see for yourself. ( www.stumid.tumblr.com/ )

St. Umid  

            And now here comes the lively discussion part about him on various sites.  Is he Russian, is he Native American, is he for real, is that tattoo for real, can I lick it…?  And then he disappears.  No more pics, no info, no nothing.  He has no Facebook page, no Twitter, no Web site, no Instagram, no nothing.   Did the spaceship just land, beam him up, and the gods took him back to the planet where they custom make beautiful men with glorious hair?  But the discussions continue.

If you know who this guy is, or what has happened to him, let me know, I’ll post it.

Twitter

So my friend set up a Twitter account, along with a Blog, and a Facebook page that only has three bits of information on it – my name, that I live in Bakersfield, and that I am married.  I also have a Domain name and a Web site under construction.  Now I just have to figure out what to do with all of this social media.  Please be patient, the learning curve is long and slow.

 

“Hey, guess what?”  I said to my husband.  “I have a twitter account.”

 “That’s nice.”  He responded.

 “Now I can twit.”

 “Tweet.”

 “Hmm, is that the past tense?”

 “Past tense of what?”

 “Is tweet the past tense of twit?”

 “No.  When you post to your Twitter account it’s called a tweet.”

 “How come if it’s a Twitter account it’s not a twit?”

 Stoney stare…

  

OK.  Moving on.  I have a friend that is blogging his book.  So I wonder if I could twit my book.  You are only allowed 140 characters per twit.  I figure at an average of five letters per word, that’s 28 words per twit.  But then you have to count spaces and punctuation, and all those quotations marks…I have a lot of dialogue in my book.  So if I subtract 15 characters/3 words for all that, I’m down to 25 words per twit.

 At 52,000 words I would need 2,080 twits to do the whole book.  OK.  So I can type 70 words per minute, more if spelling doesn’t count.  That means I could do say three twits a minute.  But you have to log in, send, and log out and that takes time.  So if I could type two twits a minute I would need only 1,040 minutes to twit my whole book.

 That many minutes is 17 and 1/3 hours…let’s just round that up to 18 hours.  I could twit my whole book in just three 6 hour days!

 Somehow the math doesn’t seem right…I’ve been working on this book for four years.  Of course I was out of commission for about two years, but still…. If I let my imagination go nonstop, I could be cranking out a book a week.

 

 

 There once was a woman named Marge

Who lived with her husband Sarge

And when she had twit

What she had writ

She felt like she was in charge.
