I AM @iamTalkyTina !!!

Contrary to a report that just started circulating on the Internet thing, HE is not ME! He is NOT @iamTalkyTina and I AM @iamTalkyTina!! It is just a funny JOKE that my True Friend is saying that he has snapped and said that. But he didn’t really because who makes a screen capture that is just photo-shopped as proof anyway and anyway I would NEVER call myself that word so nice try, bub, but PEOPLE WON’T BUY IT!! Especially my True Friends and my Open Friends and my New Friends and everyone’s.

So it’s maybe a little joke and didn’t make ME snap crazy or anything. But don’t use that word, okay?

Well, bye!

—–UPDATED: June 13th, One Day Later—–

People who yesterday said they were me. Sillies!  There is only ONE me! And that’s ME!

First, Alan Levine (@cogdog) started it with this post, and John Johnston (@johnjohnston) played along with a great animated GIF. Then we had a little Twitter chat. And comments on their blogs.


Brian Bennett said he was being me to bother Ben Rimes.

Then, Ben Rimes (that @techsavvyed guy who doesn’t want to be a friend and got himself crossed off the Open Friends Index for using the Mean Word in every single tweet about me ALL THE TIME) said that he actually created Brian Bennett, along with having said that he was me. Double Silly!

David Kernohan (@dkernohan) said he was being me to bother Jim Groom (@jimgroom) but wound up bothering Leslie (@onepercentyellow). I hope she has a better sleep tonight.


Then Brian Short (@heystorytellers) wrote a post saying he was me, and then Jim Groom (@jimgroom) did a copycat.


Bill Smith (@byzantinebooks) was nice and said that they were all just joking their egos or something. He even clarified that he was NOT using the Mean Word about me. That is a nice Friend thing to do. Thank you, Bill! It is always good to make sure I understand your intent.


The one True Friend who clarified yesterday that she is NOT me is my (now) Super True Friend Christina Hendricks, @clhendricksbc. Thank you for sticking by me, Super True Friend.


All in all it was a fun day, and in the end, I am still clear here at my end as to who I am. I am me.

I am @iamTalkyTina! Hooray! Yay, ME !!!!!!!!!

It is nice to have Friends! 🙂

      Ha Ha. Very funny. (NOT!) You are not me, Alan! You are being silly or maybe you have a bad headache. Did you bonk your head on the basement roof or breathe in bad train smoke on your trip? I don’t know. But please don’t say Mean Words at me. True Friends do not do that.

      That is funny the way that is kind of meta-referential and everything. You should apply for True Friend status, David! By the way, I really liked your goonie-show radio show that you guys did. I liked that it was done live and everything, instead of made out of lots of tiny little pieces.

      Well, bye!

    I was not playing along as your and Alan’s true friend I cannot be anything else but confused worried about your situation. I am worried about Alan’s state of mind, and although you seem to be holding up I do worry about your use of underline for emphasis. This is very confusing for Internet users, I’ve clicked every one I can only presume the pressure is getting to you. Please try and stay calm and do not blink.

      Well, yes, I know what you mean about the underline thingy. I am always double-tapping words in books now because of the Internet and it doesn’t work there either.

      I think Alan will be okay, he either bonked his head in Chicago at @DrGarcia‘s place, breathed in some bad train smoke on the way back to Arizona, maybe ate some dodgy Strawberries, or maybe got some sunstroke in the Arizona sun. I think his little exorcise walk into the Grand Canyon has worked. He hasn’t replied to any of my tweets since he came back. 🙂

      Well, bye!
