Anyway, my current obsession is Twitter. I have been a Tweeter or a Tweep for a long time. I have two personas: Coach_Jenn which is generally where I discuss running-related issues and promote my articles and other items of interest to other runners and endurance athletes. For those of you that go to my actual blog page (jennifergill.blogspot.com), you can read my Coach_Jenn tweets. My other persona is simply JennGill where I'm, well, me. I haven't tweeted (i.e. posted) in a while as JennGill because I always was Coach_Jenn. And it's confusing. But over the weekend, I was sick with a yucky stomach ailment (to be polite) and I went to my JennGill page on Twitter to see what was going on. I decided to follow all celebrities using my JennGill persona. You'd be amazed at how many celebrities there are on Twitter. I now know a lot of what these famous people are doing throughout the day and I have to say it's quite fascinating. For example:
- Mark Hoppas (Blink-182 band member) does not sleep well and wakes up very early in the morning.
- Margaret Cho (comedian) really really loves animals and has a dog named Ralph whom she took to the vet this morning to have a lump looked at (it's nothing).
- Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster) had a business meeting this morning and asked what to wear: jeans or a dress (I responded to her and told her to wear a nice, but not-too-nice, dress).
- MC Hammer (sort of rapper, wearer of very baggy pants) had a birthday yesterday.
- Perez Hilton (gossip monger) loves Cadbury Eggs (as do I).
- Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are currently in the South of France (how horrible for them).
- P.Diddy calls himself Ptwitty (ha!).
- Snoop Dog only "tweezles" after 11 AM.
- Rainn Wilson (Dwight from The Office) thinks he's developing man boobs. And they are an A cup.
You get the idea. I also follow Lance Armstrong who tweets A LOT. He's more obsessed with it than anyone, and clearly admits it. For instance, he just tweeted that he's picking up his kids from school at the moment. Such regular people!!
I highly recommend you get on the Twitter bandwagon. It's so much fun. If you do, be sure to follow me (JennGill for randomness and Coach_Jenn for running stuff)!
By the way, today's song title chosen for my blog post title is by a band named Tweet. Get the connection? Good...
