… or at least I didn’t think I did till the beautiful Kate over at The Five F’s Blog tagged me in this twitterholic meme! *sigh*
“Try to make me go to rehab and I said no, no, no!”
There was only one problem with this meme… the avatar!
I had to change the avatar because something wasn’t quite right… something was missing?
You see a few of my twitter friends, like the lovely @kateab who tagged me in this meme, the forever popular @himupnorth, @cosmicgirlie who has an obsession with dildo Bob and bacon, my sister @ificouldescape and @nickie72 who often wakes from a drunken stupor to find she’s been attached to twenty tweets about The Human Centipede only click if you want to be seriously disturbed(trust me don’t ask you soooo don’t wanna know) like to consume a little wine whilst tweeting, flirting and having a couple of laughs.
So to honor them all I thought this avatar… well… it just seemed a little more fitting!
What do you think?
After all, these are a few of the people who keep me coming back for more! They’re funny, saucy, and supportive and I love ’em all!
Hello my name is @cheekymonkey8 and I’m a twitterholic!
Now that I’ve tried to justify my addiction, let’s get on with this meme shall we?
You know how these things go… you mention the person who tagged you, answer a few questions and then tag a few more people!
So question #1
When did you join Twitter?
Well Kate, I joined twitter May 2nd, 2008!
Why did you join Twitter?
Much like yourself Kate I joined because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about! There were two social network sites going on at the time Twitter and Plurk, but Twitter seemed a lot more user-friendly to me.
Who is/was your first or oldest follower? Who did you follow first? Tell me all about them.
My first followers were:
@melnole who is one of my best friends and who relocated to another area in Florida a few years back! She loves life and is living it well with her recent rock climbing and kayaking excursions. She’s a fabulous mum to three children, all boys, one with special needs and twins god bless her!
My second follower was her ex-husband ’nuff said!
@ciugola was my third follower! She’s another good friend of mine who was in a book club with me a few years back. We are political allies and ladies who love a good, friendly, gossip over some sweets. Note to self: Still need to return her Fondu pot! She’ll giggle if she reads this!
@ifIcouldescape was my fourth follower! Most of you know her as she’s my beautiful sister and we tend to have a little tongue-in-cheek sibling rivalry on twitter. I’m still the head!
Last but not least is deb_opks a wonderful mom of three beautiful girls I met while blogging! Her youngest daughter has Down Syndrome and she has a wonderful blog called Three Weddings check it out!
Do you have any celebrities following you, or have you ever had a DM from a celeb?
Why yes… yes I do! I have the forever fabulous @jimmyfallon following me! You can find out how I achieved that HERE. I also have an up and coming musician JD Webb following me . I would LOVE for @zacharylevi to send me a tweet as Meg and I LOVE him as Chuck Bartowski on Monday nights! Tune in peeps he’s awesome! Alas, that’s a dream for another day!
If you could follow anyone not on Twitter – alive, dead, real or fictional – on Twitter, who would it be?
I honestly don’t know? I follow a lot of them already!
Which came first – Twitter or blog?
My blog came about two months before twitter! My sister, who was blogging long before me, said it would be a great outlet for me and a place where I could meet others who were going through and dealing with some of the same things I was at the time. I hate to admit it, but she was right and I’ve met some lovely bloggers and tweeters along the way! Some have stayed around, some have fizzled out, but most have touched my heart one way or another!
So now I must tag some other fabulous twitterholics to tackle this fab meme…
