Oooo. Creepy Social Networking.

Hi Downtown,

Whereas yesterday my heart was warmed as I networked with a group of four or five unknowns with respect to working on a startup weekend, we shared common interests yet our strengths complimented each other, today I took a peak at my twitter followers and am feeling less cozy. A few new followers are downright spooky as in Breast Implants or Body Building. Suggestive selling, maybe? But still. I’m not sure I like having strangers know what I’m thinking or reading.

The cool thing about twitter is that the user can block the follower. In the case of the Body Building, he or she is already busted. I clicked through to see who was behind the thumbnail, this is what I got:

This account is currently suspended and is being investigated due to strange activity.

It is a weird world out there… stay safe. xoxo Uptown.

All the Leaves are Brown

dt, fall is upon us as the green leaves turned to vibrant yellows, reds, brick and current colors. Earlier in the season, we hiked up Bear Mountain – sublime.

The Popular Tupperware Party Plan

dt, I’m being domestic these days. But what is it with plastic containers, you know, the 50s era invention of tops and bottoms that never seem to be in tandem, no matter how often I try to organize. Honestly, trying to find a match reminds me of what happens to socks when one from the pair disappears in the dryer. Why not create a set that doesn’t separate?1959 Catalog I know, the ladies got together to mix and match their plastics…even back in the day the darn things missed their mates.
