As you may have noticed over the past year, this has tended to deplete the stock of Salad postings. There's something addictive to the nature of Twitter; 140 characters, wet it, wipe it, good night.
The Salad remains my first love, but then, no one really takes what I write in the Salad Bowl and illustrates it, the way my colleague and friend Greg Williams did one of my tweets at his very cool new project, "Twips."
Essentially, Greg takes tweets and illustrates them as a comic panel.
This is the one he did of a post I wrote earlier this month:
Funny. Ha. Turd Ferguson. Ha. Funny name.
My favorite so far is one he did of Rommie's post about a childhood experience:
SIGNS THAT YOU HAVE UNNECESSARILY NEGLECTED YOUR BLOG
1. Your kind and supportive neighbor pegs you next to the frozen seafood case in the neighborhood grocery on a Sunday afternoon to admonish you for not posting updates.* **
* This before mentioning that she and her husband were almost taken out recently by a giant industrial spool that tumbled from a truck on I-4.
** And also before mentioning that despite this, they kept driving to Disney World and spent a rather enjoyable weekend that coincidentally included a sizeable deductible.
To recap: In a nutshell: Your blog disappoints me, more so than $1,000 worth of undercarriage damage.
2. Salad Boy, standing next to you in the grocery as you receive said admonishment, agrees wholeheartedly with the neighbor and begins to join in the chiding.
