Tumblr

by Marinka on August 2, 2011

I wish I had a Tumblr account.

The one that everyone keeps saying is so easy to use and intuitive.

But I can’t figure it out.

I tried once, for two hours.

And at the end, I think I created a username or maybe joined jihad, who the fuck knows.

If I had a Tumblr account I would post little things that are too long for Twitter but are not really blog-worthy.

Like the fact that Nicki is constipated and when I wanted to Tweet that fun news, “constipated” kept getting changed to “constituent”.

So Nicki is a constituent. And constipated. And I don’t understand Tumblr.

I think I may be too old, because Tumblr drives me batty. Give me a real blog any day of the week over Tumblr!

I am also too old for Google+.

You will never understand Tumblr unless you are 21, living on your parents’ trust fund in Williamsburg smoking shitty cigarettes and taking pictures of the sunset from the roof of your walk-up with an old-school Nikon manual camera.

I’m just confused about where Tumblr’s ‘e’ went. THERE SHOULD BE AN ‘E’.

Petromalt. Nicki will once again be a free flowing constituent.

I don’t blame you on the Tumblr thing. I have one and it used to be super easy to use, that’s why I got one. They changed up the format a few months ago, and it’s a bit more difficult to use now.

However, I do wish you had one. Reading about Nicki’s constipation via Tumblr would be truly magical.

I have a tumbler.

And by that, I mean my kid does somersaults in my living room on a regular basis.

I have a tumbler, I drink out of it.

Also, I was just told to slow down by Marinka’s blog. It’s like my mother has transformed herself into the internet.

Hmmm…..show’s you how out of it I am. I thought when you referred to Tumblr you were discussing an alcoholic beverage.

By focusing on tumbler and spell-checking, I believe you have missed a great veterinarian opportunity – how do you tell whether the cat is constipated?

Also, have you tried bicycling her legs? It works for infants, who are just like cats.

1/4 teaspoon of Miralax in wet food gets things moving. I have a giant container of it on my kitchen counter. I had to write “MOMMY CAT” in huge letters on it so when people walk in my kitchen and see it, they won’t think I have a giant stopped up colon.

Tumbler confuses me.

That is all I have to say about that.

Fck tumblr bcs ppl nd vwls.
(plus that, if they’re dumping the “e” why keep the “u”? Where is the vowel justice?)

I think that most constituents are constipated. How else to explain Michelle Bachman or most of the Tea Party? Which on tumblr wd be tprty.

I joined Tumblr about 6 months ago. And that’s all I did. I still don’t understand it.

I joined Google+ too. I don’t get it, either.

If it makes you feel better, I don’t get Tumblr either. Also, I’m constipated.

Is that what Tumblr is good for? I’ve been needing some in-between medium for just such an occasion like to complain about how incompetent dentists from 8 years ago condemned one of my teeth to death (without telling me, of course), and now it has to be extracted. And speaking of autocorrect, when my mother asked if I was taking anything for my tooth pain, I tried to text her that the Advil was helping and it kept changing it to anvil. I guess that would help, too.
