I am so over this hashtag and how people throw it around:
Really? Are you really feeling blessed to get a fancy toilet?
Just Iike some folks on Facebook are blessed to find a parking spot or blessed to go out to dinner or blessed to do anything.
In the words of Inigo Montoya, “I do not think this word means what you think it means.”
Don’t wear it out, people…especially not on a toilet.

The Interwebs are canoodlin’ about Google’s new logo, which they debuted yesterday on their homepage with a Doodle.
Twitter quickly responded with an #OldGoogle vs #NewGoogle hashtag, and #NewGoogle is winning..but personally, I think it’s
While the old logo was all serif-y (which isn’t my bag), the new logo looks like a generic children’s font from an off-brand puzzle or storybook.
I know their new name is Alphabet, but they can still afford nicer blocks, right?
Unless they have already spent a fortune in print support materials, I say ‘2.0’ this logo.
A little less #Blahgle and a little more #Google, please.

Bloomberg isn’t in this ad for Pepsi — trust me, I’ve watched it several times — but the former New York City mayor’s fingerprints are all over it.
Mini cans of Pepsi? I drink two cans of Diet Pepsi with a meal. Going smaller is so…so…

When I was home for Christmas last December, my three nephews were joking about the perils of having their mom and aunts on Facebook and Twitter.
They just never know when we may chime in on something they post.
Today I drove that point home.
I was stuck on the computer all day, working on a project with a tight deadline. When I needed a break, I would check Twitter; my nephew Nathaniel had just posted something every time.
So did I.
Each time I commented on his tweet or posted a tweet in reply, I added the hashtag #AuntsonTwitter. We chatted back and forth for quite a while, having a great time…or so I thought. Then he posted his own hashtag —
Whatever do you think it means??!?!

I do not know Toneh Perry.
But when he offered his thoughts in a hashtag game on Twitter yesterday, I thought he and his entry deserved a larger audience.
The hashtag — #confessyourunpopularopinion
It is not

The word of the moment is…
I’ve heard it used over and over this week.
On last night’s episode of Scandal — in what was arguably the line of the night — James said, “You’re a shameless monster!” to Cyrus….to which he replied, “Who loves you dearly!”
Well, that makes it all better.
And I just read this morning that Bob’s Burgers own Kristin Schaal, who provides the voice for bunny-eared Louise, sold a sitcom to ABC called — what else — American Monster.
Plus, there’s a #monster hashtag on Twitter floating around that links to all kinds of scary posts and pics.
So…be hip. Be happening.

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon just keeps finding more and more ways to get their audience involved in the show.
Hashtags. Screen grabs. Instagrams.
The show producers always pick the funniest ones…and who doesn’t like the idea of maybe seeing their idea on the show?
But think about it — we are creating content for Jimmy. Entire segments of the show. He gets thousands of entries, all written by us — the audience — for free. Oh well, it does give him and his staff more time to focus on new parody songs, shows and series.
Still. Brilliant way to play us, Jimmy.

It’s been a mere two days since “hashtag” was declared 2012’s Word of the Year, and we already have a frontrunner in this year’s competition:
“Lady Edith, have you done something jolly with your hair?”
In a Downton Abbey premiere episode chock full of plot twists and memorable one-liners, Sir Anthony’s clever compliment of the youngest Crawley sister’s coiff was, quite simply, the bee’s knees.
I hereby declare ‘jolly’ to be the Word of the Year for 2013…and heretofore plan to incorporate it into my day-to-day conversation whenever appropriate (and even when it’s not).
Isn’t that a jolly idea?
