There are plenty of things we have to talk about, friends, but I’m keeping it to just the GREAT TWITTER CONSPIRACY that has been threatening to asphyxiate our cohort (from laughter) these two days because I’m tired as anything. here’s a premature apology for the choppy flow this post is sure to have. my head is choppy. (insert appropriate amount of rhythmic foolstops here)
A month or so back, Hansheng convinced Cindy to get a twitter account and told her that if she kept tweeting, her default twitter egg display picture would hatch.
For non twitter users, the default looks like this
CINDY GOT SO EXCITED ABOUT THIS
didnt replace the default egg
in about a week she came up to me real thrilled, and said JEM LOOK JEM LOOK MY EGG IS HATCHING
sure enough, there was a cartoon WING FIST punching out of the slightly cracking egg
A M A Z I N G
(feel slight regret over not screenshotting this because i have googled it several times and can’t seem to find it)
in another week or so, she suddenly tweeted JEM LOOK O M G LOOK AT MY PROFILE PICTURE
THE EGG HAD HATCHED
THERE WAS A BABY BIRD LOOKING REALLY DAZED IN THE MIDDLE OF TWO HALVES OF THE EGG
cindy was understandably pleased with herself, and the rest of us were suitably impressed, so she left her twitter account alone for quite a bit after that. and then, yesterday in lecture:
HER EGG GOT FRIED
i swear she lost it
she turned and asked han if he had been secretly changing her profile pictures all this while which he vehemently denied but it was kind of hard to make out what she was saying because she was laughing and tearing up and CHOKING ON OXYGEN i was legitimately worried that she was going to turn blue and faint
almost died, doubled up with laughter, the entire row was Shaking and i couldn’t speak for quite awhile because i was so seized with laughter its one of those things where the hilarious-ness of the situation exponentially increases with time I HAVE NOT LAUGHED SO HARD FOR SO LONG
i feel the need to point out that this was ongoing concurrent with lecture
sorry prof angela.
up till now the middlemen (andrea, jul, me, the bunch of bystanders at the back of the LT) have no idea who to believe. half of us think its twitter and it’s admittedly good sense of humor, and the other find han highly suspect.
Have since been googling “twitter egg hatching” and “does the twitter egg hatch?????” in different permutations but we’re drawing a blank, if anyone knows anything about this egg hatching conspiracy DO HOLLA AT US ACCORDINGLY.
In other news i attended the PS Vita preview and launch tonight, courtesy of Sony Computer Entertainment Hong Kong. Will update when i get the photos. Anyway. Here’s a grainy photo booth photo in the shirt they gave me:
You can’t really see it in the photo but the blue bits SHIMMER i am so pleased with this fact.
Thank you Sony for the invitation!
the most advanced gaming console i had was a gameboy color back in primary school where i would challenge my friends to POKEBATTLES and my entire life choices centered around BULBASAUR, CHARMANDER OR SQUIRTLE??????? but this new console, i must say, is pretty damn sweet.
