It's my last Bullet Sunday before vacation! I'd be happy about that, but there's just such an obscene amount of stuff that has to be done before I leave. Guess this is going to be a short one.
• Impostor. The number of people getting their Facebook and Twitter accounts hacked is reaching epic proportions. Today there was a run on Twitter, where SEVEN people I follow got hacked and are now sending me spam.
Sooooo... if you are sent link FROM ANYONE... EVEN PEOPLE YOU KNOW... where you get a login page, DON'T TRUST IT! Always question these pages. Because while they may look authentic...
All too often they are not. See that extra "j" in there?
• Doom. The bees are attacking, tons of space junk are falling from the sky, and beavers are going to inherit the earth... but the good news is that Pop Tarts keeps coming up with new flavors, which has allowed me to finally fulfill my annual New Years resolutions!
Here's hoping next year is as adventurous and delicious as 2011!
• Emmy. I'm pretty sick of crappy awards shows... especially award shows like The Emmys which get it all wrong more often than not. This year, of the major nominations given, here's my take...
Of course, the real problem is that they can't even get the nominations right (best comedy should have been Raising Hope, for example). But it is what it is, and everybody's entitled to their opinion. Even if it's wrong.
And now... back to packing my suitcase. That'll be big fun.
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
Hmmmm … Drink a beer you’ve never had before! BTW .. did I tell you I have a Pub! 😉
Australia? Where and when? Seriously can’t believe you are coming here. Your review of us is going to make very interesting reading!!
I’m starting to wish we had Pop Tarts here. They look kind of good.
On my mobile device, I did not see the ‘j’ in the domain name, which is when I got hacked. Sorry if you got a spam DM from me.
Cool to know your upcoming vacation is to Australia. Excited to see some of your photos and read about your adventurous stories.
Must try those confetti cake Pop Tarts.
Don’t forget socks, underwear or your toothbrush!
I got some spam, too – I just ignore it, in general. I mean, there probably IS a few videos out there of me being sooo funny, but it ain’t from random twitter folks. 🙂
Please excuse my horrendous grammar in that last comment. I have sinus problems today, and took some meds.
ok, dumb question…i clicked on the link from a twitter friend, but did not sign in. am i hacked?
(fuck, i hate being this computer stupid. sorry.)
No. As long as you don’t give your password, you should be good!
My work Twitter account has been receiving those DMs for weeks now so I was well aware of it and didn’t click jackshit when I received similar messages twice this weekend. I was just surprised it was still going around. I figured since I hadn’t received it up to this point on my personal account, everyone was done with it.
BTW, I was totally stoked that Margo Martindale won for Justified. She was incredible this past season. And, until last night, I always thought Harry’s Law was supposed to be a comedy. Weird. Obviously I’ve never watched it.
I offer you my sympathy for having sat through the Emmys.
I haven’t been back to Spain since ’92. I miss it terribly.
Pop Tarts are largely off my radar these days, since only the unfrosted ones are vegetarian. Food manufacturers seem to love to find sneaky ways to put dead animal in their products.
