Friday Afternoon Confessional: Yesterday’s News Today

I confess that I got on Twitter. I confess that I decided to do so after posting three pithy Facebook statuses all the same day.


July 8, 2011 - Posted by | Friday Afternoon Confessional


  1. I confess that tonight (my night) when I got up to do wee-wee (I’m not as young as I used to be) I was prepared to write something that technically was still Friday (weblog time). Josh beat me to it so it was one of the usual boring wee-wee’s. It will have to wait until another time to confess to all of you that I am the anti-Craig

  2. I confess did not feel even the faintest impulse to click on that ‘Twitter’-link Josh K-sky mentioned in the post above.

    And…my last but not least (actually first) confession is: I confess I’d like to hold Guido Nius in my arms – nota bene: just in a slightly friendly way, and during day time only (so that the ‘not-as-young-as-he-used-to-be_wee-wee’- time, and generally any ‘night time’ can be decidedly excluded) and tell him that he is not alone in his anti-Craig-ness.

  3. I confess I missed FAC. I confess further that I don’t tell anybody about my Twitter feed because I just use it to drive traffic to the baseball blog i write for. My final confession is that I now have two blogs for topics I’m a bit obsessive about but figure most people don’t want to talk about. One is about baseball, minor league baseball in fact, just to make it less appealing to most people. The other is about running.

    I’m using blogs so I can still obsess about them and not be tempted to bring either up in casual conversation.

  4. Oh, and Josh, as a new Twitter user, I think there’s something in the terms and conditions that says you’re obligated to complain about the 140 character limit.

  5. I confess that most of the world–indeed, the vast, vast majority of the world (if not also the universe)–is anti-me. Gordon, one of our dogs, would like to confess that he is excited to begin an experimental dosing of trilostane based upon research presented to the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine conference about three weeks ago.

  6. Still stealing medicine out of starving children’s mouths for your dog, Craig? FOR SHAME!

    I confess that I did not give any thought to the Confessional on Friday until I saw this post come up on my RSS feed. I confess that I stayed out late Thursday night, am not as young as I once was, and thus spent most of Friday in a daze. I confess that I bought an eye-catching sport jacket at a thrift store and wore it out to The Girlfriend’s birthday dinner (she also wore something she bought at the thrift store).

    I confess that I am very unlikely to sign up for Google+.

  7. I confess I suspect Craig is making money out of offering his dog as guinea pig for experiments/researches of American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine.

    I further confess that I strongly suspect that either Craig nor Adam (Kotsko) seem to understand that Craig(ness) or anti-Craig(ness) does not have anything to do with any dog in general, or with Gordon in particular, or with starving children.

  8. I confess I did not mean any of it. It was just something I said. Go Gordon! She loves us as much as we love each other.

    I also suspect that giving experimental dog medicine to the poor starving children would be to proceed in entirely unscientific ways. But I confess I am as little ecpert on that as I am on anything.

  9. It’s the dosage and the timing that is experimental–the standard dosage and timing wasn’t working as well as it should have in part because of another underlying condition. The medicine is very standard.
