Why, Greg, why?

I wouldn't be surprised if you were to look out of your windows right now and see the four horsemen of the apocalypse riding across your lawn.  After all, the end of the world must be nigh.

I have joined Twitter.

With SIFF coming up, and my having no opportunity to write long posts while watching movies AND volunteering AND enumerating AND teaching, I thought this might be the best way to get news out about what I've seen and what I'm about to see.  Because, as everyone knows, the problem is that I haven't found enough ways in which to waste my time.

So, if you're on Twitter and wish to say "hi," realize that I have a desktop computer.  Not a Blackberry.  Not an iPhone.  Not even a laptop.  A friggin' desktop computer.  That means that I will not be on Twitter 24/7.  Hopefully.  As stated, I will be on now and again, sharing info about the festival, my reactions to movies, etc.  Then, once the dust has settled (or when I get some free time, HAHA!), I will post an update about what I have seen.  Chances are, though, that they will remain in draft form for three weeks.  So, if I suddenly stop posting on this blog for three weeks, you will know why.  The good news is, you can still follow me on Twitter.  The bad news is, you have to sign up for Twitter, unless I can figure out how to add a scroll bar to my blog, in which case, you will have to sign up for Twitter to read anything I've posted as far back as an hour ago.

But I'll see what I can do.

Oh, and my Twitter name is litdreamer, because some jerk other person is using literarydreamer. ;-)


  1. Happy watching, tweeting. I shall never join the gang, though I remember having said never a cell phone for me!

  2. I said the same thing about cell phones and Twitter, and now I have both x-O

  3. Haha! Good gracious, I'm not even on twitter!!! ;)

    {I greatly appreciate the title pun though, "Twitter-pated". =D}

  4. And I'm sure you know the movie I am referencing, too (hint: it's my favorite Disney movie of all time).

  5. Welcome to twitter and i hope to be reading more of your work in the coming future :)

  6. I will follow. :) Also, I updated my Cannes post... Hope it fits your needs.

  7. Yes, I saw that you are following me now. Thanks. :-) I skimmed through your updated Cannes post, but adding the synopses makes the post so much better, especially since a lot of us don't know what these films are about (unlike, say, films nominated for Oscars--at least most of the time). :-)

  8. Bambi!!! =D
    I remember watching that movie as a kid at my grandparents house! I liked it except when Bambi's mother died. Very traumatic, especially for my sister! Hehe... :)
