I’m blogging less these days because I micro-blog on Twitter. If anything funny or sad or dramatic happens, I tweet it out – which means I don’t build up a need to write a blog post about it. It’s a shame because you, my readers, miss out on the exciting action in my mundane Melbourne life! But hakuna matata because a genius lightbulb moment just came to me and I thought I’d incorporate my tweets into my blog. Genius!!
So the story is… I’m on a 1-hour bus ride to Chadstone…so I start tweeting throughout the journey…
5.00pm : Sitting on a bus…and then Bus jolted so I accidentally elbowed a guy’s peen! FML! And bahahahahaha!
5.11pm : Some dude with really bad BO just sat behind me. Gross! *silently plotting to elbow his peen too*
5.12pm : Guide dog got on bus. It’s amazing what they can do!!!
5.18pm : China girl on my left is speaking to china girl on my right! STFU! My ears hurt! Stop screeching!! Why do Chinese ppl talk so loud??
5.20pm : I hate taking buses! Must learn to drive to Chaddy!
5.21pm : China ladies have got off bus. Now got china dude sitting next to me. He has halitosis and BO! FML!!!
5.30pm : Call me a snob or whatever but public transport sucks balls! Buses are peasant wagons!!!
5.43pm : Destination. Arrived. I. Have.
And before you dismiss me as a crazy twat for talking to myself, my tweeps ( = Twitter friends) joined in the conversation too.
Here are some of their tweets :
@ShinyGlitterBug : OMG you’re hilair Ling! LOLOL!!
@xxshinrai : omg worst!! Once a lady in front of me kept doing those silent yet highly toxic farts. My friend I almost died lol
@miss_investress : lol ur tweets on the bus are making me laugh especially when u elbowed that guys peen. Made my Wednesday better

@Aysh_tmb : Btw thanks for the entertaining bus commentary this morn…fab! x
@shelld1979 : Peen???? Hehe…..
And yes…it was probably funnier at the time…! As you can see, spelling and grammar are not of major importance in Twitter and we use a lot of acronyms – but it’s all fun
