Welcome back to another fantastically exciting day here are Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers…where the posts are always fresh and the reading is piping hot (well, not like THAT, but you know what I mean…).
Today’s post is all about the funny. You know, the HA HA HA moments that make us lose a few calories throughout the course of our day (no, it’s true! Laughing helps you burn calories…HA! < - - See, there goes a few more!). We start out with something that is funny or rather will be funny to many of you…at my expense but hey, I’ll survive. It’s my first venture into an “old-to-you-but-new-to-me” frontier and man is it throwing me for a loop! What is it? Facebook. *-* ~pauses to allow you time to compose yourself again~
Yep, that’s right; now even I’m on Facebook…or at least my blog is. ^_^ Twitter I can handle, blogging…no sweat. Facebook? Strange country that FB is. So many wait to share and be shared, like and not like, friend and un-friend…a whole other ball of yarn with the terminology too. ~shakes head~ Crazy stuff but I’m starting to get the hang of it…well, the sharing part anyways. So feel free to ‘like’ or ‘friend’ (or whatever the right term is) my site over on the old FB too. Having also added a new ‘share’ section to the right hand sidebar is proving to be pretty nifty as well…connects right to FB, Twitter, Google+...the works. Now, speaking of sharing…
Today’s post hits the social media (virtual) nail on the head and gives you a great many laughs along the way…plus a new person to follow if you’re not already. It was an impromptu read that spoke to me from the shelf. No, really…I heard it whisper…or tweet. Ready for the main attraction? Today’s book of choice is…
the tweets of Steve Martin
of this review has been found to cause spontaneous Twitter following of one stevemartintogo. Even said blog owner as succumbed to this epidemic as well as a bloggy buddy or two JUST from the teaser post. Readers...you've been advised.... Reading
Okay, so the title alone is enough to make one pause when browsing the shelf…add to that the content for those of us that use the blue birdie site and you’ve got yourself a winner. Simply put, it's a collection of his many tweets starting with the mundane ones we all send when just getting started to those calorie burning funnies that continue long after the first 140 characters appeared on the screen thanks to the connections we’ve made…also known as our fellow Tweeples and their gloriously original reactions, statements, and general conversation carry-on-ers. (Yep…tweeples ROCK…nuff said.)
I won’t bore you with the details…well, okay, there are no boring details with this one but to get too wordy (as if that would EVER happen here…~whistles_glances away~) would be to spoil the fun and believe me, Mr. Martin does it way better than me. One of my favorites, besides the one shared yesterday, is the sing along section. Apparently around the holidays, we would tweet out a line to a carol and you had to fill in the next line of the song. The results…not exactly Christmas magic but too funny nonetheless.
In summary, he may have intended to sell millions of his books with this release (and his other works) and that could possibly happen, but at the very least he'll be gaining a whole new tweeple audience. *clicks follow* This book is now available on a bookstore shelf near you from Grand Central Publishing. For more on this title as well as their full catalog, visit them online, 'like' them on Facebook or check in on their Twitter feed. To discover more about the author, Mr. Steve Martin (whom I’ve dubbed the “man of many hats” what with his multiple careers…author, actor, comedian, musician, etc), feel free to visit his official website, 'like' his official fan page…or of course, follow along on Twitter.
Until next time…happy tweeting…I mean, liking….I mean READING!
P.S. For those curious few that may not have deciphered today's post title, THIS is the translation..."Rolling on the floor laughing...or...rolling on the floor tweeting?". ^_^
