@iamTalkyTina’s #TrueFriends Orchestra

Well, The Daily Create, tdc1998, says to show your Fantasy Band, but I actually have one, called The @iamTalkyTina’s #TrueFriend Orchestra. It has all peoples in it who are on my True Friends Index and have a #TrueFriends badge, except for one who still has to put in her application (not saying any names.) 

You can figure out who all of the #TrueFriends are (if you do not already know them) by looking at my True Friends Index and matching them to their badges.

Instead of giving away all of the answers, I will just say this for attributions:

Plus, because I added a ringer to the Orchestra just today, you should check out her music which I am listening to right now.

Which is really cool, because I remember the ukulele version, too!

 

#TFW You See Your First Stairs of the Day

#TFW you see your first stairs of the day, and they are all curvy and swoopy and special and full of potential for all kinds of mischief and enjoyment and fun, and you get a tingly feeling that tells you today is going to be one of those fantastic days where everything is just going to go your way and you will have such a fine time, so you hop up and head out to start the morning  with glee in your steps and a smile on your face and singing happy songs inside your head as you look for new #TrueFriends and nobody makes any comments about your height or says the Mean Word at you.

This was one for The Daily Create, tdc1982 which says “ZOMG ROTL art! Create a TIL, TFW, ICYMI type tweet for what is going on in classic art.

When Technology Helps You to Have More #TrueFriends Faster

OlHatchetJack (@olHatchetJack, on Twitter) got the first @iamTalkyTina #TrueFriend badge

So one time my #TrueFriend @olHatchetJack (@olHatchetJack, on Twitter) was getting some grief in his snowbank from the G-Men about not having any ID from being dead there since the pioneer days from before when they even had ID, and so I hauled off and made him some ID of the type a @iamTalkyTina #TrueFriends badge.

It was the first one of it’s kind, and then everybody in #ds106 wanted them so I made a web form for people to fill in to apply. I had to raise the standards to keep out the riffraff, and then even Sean (@seanplacchetti, on Twitter) made his own (because remix) but then he applied for real and he got an official one, because they are only official if they are posted on my website. So that was good.

Then, a whole bunch of friends applied on the web form, but their names were in there for a long time because the Google didn’t have notifications to tell you when somebody filled out the form. So I made all those badges and had more #TrueFriends. But it was a bit embarrassing that they had to wait that long.

Then there was the time when my #TrueFriend Vivian (@VivianRolfe, on Twitter) applied and it was months because the Google still didn’t tell me that she had applied and my #TrueFriend That David (@dkernohan, on Twitter) got mad at me  (but he didn’t use the mean word because he knows better) and I felt bad and then I made Viv her badge really fast after a while more of waiting.

Then there were other times for the same reason.

So six days ago, two ds106 peoples said on the Twitter that they applied to be a #TrueFriend because a The Daily Create was about badges and so I had said

and so then they applied and they said it on Twitter so I saw it. But my web form didn’t tell me about it and so it was six days later (today) when I went into my web form on the Google and did this part called Set Notification Rules:

"Set Notifications Rules, Redacted," by @iamTalkyTina

“Set Notifications Rules, Redacted,” by @iamTalkyTina (The black box part is called “redacted.”)

I think that when I made my web form way back at the @olHatchetJack times, the Google didn’t have Set Notification Rules, but I thought they did, so anyway now if somebody who wants to be a #TrueFriend applies, maybe I will get an email to tell me about it.

Plus, today when I looked at my web form, there was an application there from a whole one year ago in March 2016 that I didn’t even know about, plus one from June 2016 plus one from November of 2016. So those people called cindylouwho (@cjennings, on Twitter) and Holly B. Strange (@QueenHollyWeen, on Twitter) and Ken Bauer (@ken_bauer, on Twitter) and Terry Greene (@greeneterry, on Twitter) applied and have been waiting for too long for #TrueFriends applications, which makes me a sad Tina.

So I will start to process all those five applications today, and if they meet my stringent criteria then they will get their badges and I will say it on the Twitter.

That is why I wrote a post today called “When Technology Helps you to Have More #TrueFriends Faster.”

Some of My Shield Maiden Ancestors had Beards

Well, it was that Amy Burvall (@AmyBurvall, on Twitter) who said about a Thinkerings video tonight on Twitter that she made about #DigitalVikings that had me immediately digging in the family ancestral shoeboxes for relatives that were like that. But first, you should watch it.

My Ancestral #DigitalViking Shield Maidens

It took me about an hour to find a bunch of their pictures, and then I shared them on my Flickr so that Amy and other #DigitalViking folks could see my pedigree of it.

Other people like Alec Couros (@courosa, on Twitter) were once things like #DigitalSherpas, or people like Don Tapscott said #DigitalNatives, and me (@iamTalkyTina, on Twitter), I always say #DigitalTrueFriends, but tonight Amy was saying #DigitalVikings.

So without any more do, here is an embedded slideshow gallery of it for you to see, with their names.

Plus, I made my current Twitter icon of it, instead of the #western106 one that was there before. I don’t know if #ds106 is going to be a Viking one one day. Maybe there are not too many media for it.

But, also UNCLE Jim Groom (@jimgroom, on Twitter) was also saying about his #RedSonja comic book wallet and Xena: Warrior Princess, and maybe I can get the starring role in the reboot of it if Lucy Lawless doesn’t get it.
