Thing two: I laughed out loud yesterday when I got the following notification in my email: 'Hal Johnson (@bodybreak) is now following you on Twitter.' Just in case you aren't Canadian, there was a series of public service type commercials on TV when I was growing up called "BodyBreak" starring Hal Johnson and Joanne MacLeod. They were sponsored by a group called ParticipACTION and would give various nutritional and physical fitness tips all while encouraging us to "keep fit and have fun." I kind of thought "well...if Hal Johnson is on twitter, maybe it is time to move on."

Strangely enough, when I clicked through to see his twitter page, it didn't appear that he was following me. So I decided to follow him to see what would happen and got one of those "Hey, thanks for the follow" direct messages as soon as I did. Is he a secret tweet bot? Does Hal Johnson employ the "follow then unfollow" technique to gain followers in order to spread his Body Break propaganda?!?! And most importantly - does Joanne approve of this?
Thing three: The Angelina's Right Leg stuff cracks me up a bit. When a guy accepting an Oscar references the leg before the night is even over? You know the internet will be abuzz... So the right leg has a Twitter account, apparently has a tumblr (which I can't find at the moment), and has spawned "leg bombing." I wonder how many places the leg will show up...
Have a great Thursday - maybe do something to keep fit and have fun!
What public service announcements do you remember from childhood? (maybe a robot telling to you to be careful?)
