You know, the opposite of a slow news day?
Anyway, while I was busy makin dem billz, my twitter feed was blowing up about assorted things.
First of all, these llamas were chased around for a while I guess. I don’t know, I was in a meeting!
Almost 19 minutes? My goodness! I don’t spend 19 minutes on any animals except for the Puppy Cam.
And then, of course, #thedress.
What colors is it, though? Some say blue and black! Some say white and gold! I actually say both, since the first time I looked it was white and gold and then blue and black a little later. I was basically out of the loop of social media starting around 7:30pm Eastern. I left work at 9pm Eastern, and I talked to my mom on the phone and then checked my social media, and my feeds all over were positively LIVID (also means “dark bluish gray”) over the dress. It was trending everywhere. And now it’s a little before 11pm, and things are starting to turn from incredulity to anger. EVERYONE CALM DOWN! I can’t wait to see what everyone thinks in the morning!
It feels very much like the time when I went on study abroad for six measly months (in Europe, excuse me, I’m very fancy), and when I returned home I found out from Us Magazine that I was supposed to care about the wedding of Trista and Ryan, and I had completely missed the emergence of Paris Hilton as a cultural icon! It was like I returned to a different country entirely! I was not a European, not an American. Not a girl, not yet a woman. I was scared and alone and I didn’t understand anything anyone was talking about for a number of weeks!
But now no one knows who Trista and Ryan are, and Paris Hilton is just sort of a snooze, so I think I just have to wait this out. Soon enough (maybe even in the morning) no one’s going to care about the llamas or the dress. I just need to not talk to anyone until that moment. I’m going to sit here on my sofa and watch Titanic on AMC. It’s my safe place.
