Charlie Sheen’s Moment of Zen

One tweet, 240,580 followers. Things really do go better with coke!

@CharlieSheen [Twitter]

I wonder what percentage of those people are really fans and which are merely rubbernecking the ongoing car wreck.

WTF[interrobang] People at work are yapping about this douche all day every day. Tell me what Emilio is up to. I don’t give a fuck about this dumbass.

And I totally don’t get the Vox.

ADD: I voted anyway.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: just followed him – count me as a rubbernecker. How could you NOT follow him?

Can someone give me the recap in one sentence or less?

Wait. What’s this about Ewalda? Where’s my Ewalda?

I can’t believe you guys just kept living your lives and shit. Sheesh.

I too want to know if there’s some news about Ewalda. I can’t go to the sandbox because I misplaced both my gmail password and my Facebook password months ago and no longer know how to access Facebook. If anyone knows what’s going on and is willing to email me at lynnlightfoot at, please do. I haven’t checked that email account in a couple of months, but I will start doing so this evening.

@nojo: Thank God. I’ll possess my soul in patience until morning.

I just had a horrible experience. Went searching through some old notebooks to look for my gmail and facebook passwords. Found them and went on Facebook. There are now what must be at least two hundred pictures of people that i recognize neither by face or name requesting that I add them as friends and saying we have one mutual friend. I have sometimes had a user name containing the word “loner,” which should give you some idea of how frightening I find this. My college class had a 45th reunion the year before last, and a couple of friends I have not seen for at least 4o years friended me on Facebook at that time. Maybe one or both of them somehow caused this deluge. (I’m not at all clear about how the damn network works.) There were so many utter strangers that I fled in horror before I ever found the Stinquers and the two college friends that I knew I had friended.

I must take to my bed now.

@lynnlightfoot: Hugs to you. I did a major cull and eventually closed my account. I was lured back after a few months. Big mistake. I planned on keeping my friend count as low as possible, but it’s creeping up. Ugh.

Also use the ban hammer freely. You can ban these people from contacting you, and they won’t even know it because you’re on so infrequently.

@lynnlightfoot: Are you sure they’re asking you, or if the Facebook gnomes are recommending them to you? It’s sometimes funny to see which random friend of a friend might be suggested to you. Ignore requests, block feeds, and set up your privacy features so that even certain people who are friends with you can’t see or post to your wall. The little floating X that comes up to the right of posts and suggestions is your friend. You should at least just stick around on the Book of Faces to play Scrabble with me, Dodger, and baked. We get in some hardcore intense matches.

Since you found your password, did you find your way to the sandbox to see the news? Oh, and Benedick has a new puppy that is ADORABLE!

@SanFranLefty: The dachshund won’t be in the same room with her.

@nojo: I take back my frowny face at you. For now. Now I just have a sad face.

@Right Reverend Benedick: Smart Dachshund. What does the Boxer (right, a Boxer?) think? Are you up to 3 or 4 pups?

@nojo: Some sort of philosophical discourse best illustrated by “On the Internet, nobody knows you’re a dog”?

@SanFranLefty: That makes two of my lines you’ve predicted.

ADD: One left, but it’s really off the wall.

I’ll play scrabble lite with anyone. Words limited to four letters.

@karen marie has her eyes tight shut: Four tweets, 509,190. But the ratio’s going down.

@JNOV: That’s why he pays me the big bucks to be part of this here fancy-pants blog.

@nojo: No cheating and changing your post.

@SanFranLefty: Locked down at noon today. I ain’t touching it.

And speaking of not cheating: Why “Sheen”?

@SanFranLefty: No salaries this month. New Birks ain’t cheap.

@nojo: I can tell you that without looking. Because Ramon Estevez was a Catholic kid born to a Spanish dad and Irish mom, and named himself Sheen after some archbishop. That said, he’s totally team “Social Justice/Feed and Free the Poor” Catholic, and not the “I’m Up in Your Lady-Bits and Gay Marriage” Catholic, at least according to the El Ay area activists I know who have protested/been arrested with him.

@SanFranLefty: Very good. But not just “some archbishop” — Fulton Sheen, who was a broadcasting icon (and go-to punchline) for decades.

@SanFranLefty: Thanks for the tips re Facebook. The last year and a half plus have been so hectic because of multiple minor (but many and overlapping) dental and medical difficulties combined with codependent overextending of myself financially that I scarcely have time to even fret properly, much less keep up with email or learn to cope with the latest in electronic windows on the world. I keep hoping we’re about to reach a time of plain sailing for a while, in which case I would love to be an onlooker to Scrabble played by such distinguished players, if onlookers (kibitzers?) are permitted. (I love wit and words but I was never much good at Scrabble.)

Since I can’t go back to sleep, maybe I’ll see if I can make some sense of the Facebook mess and find out what’s going on before Nojo’s morning report. Again, thanks for the practical tips.

@TJ/ Jamie Sommers /TJ: Let’s do it! And to make it a little more interesting, no diphthongs.

Marginally related, from the War On Some People Who Use Some Drugs department:

Police caught on recording discussing what they’d like to steal from drug suspect’s house

Lesson for crooked cops everywhere: don’t stand near microphones in the recording studio…

@al2o3cr: Similarly, the head of the Contra Costa County Narcotics Enforcement Team arrested for selling meth and explosives.

Needless to say, the Public Defender’s Office is having to slug through every case he was every involved in to try to reopen the cases.

@nojo: Is this a creation of Silent Creative Partner?

@SanFranLefty: No, he does one of the other Family Circus parodies. They seem to be spreading like kudzu.
