So, the responses could easily be broken down into:
The cat plurked up the bird after it twittered at him (what are these things of which you speak?)
Run, run, as fast as you can! (cause then you won’t get sucked into this fad and will have time in your life to do other stuff you love to do and hey, Jen, take up knitting!)
Ok then. I shall neither Twitter nor Plurk and instead learn how to use my camera, PSE 5.0, and scrapbook my little heart out. Knitting? Probably ain’t gonna happen, sorry.
