Or go knit in bed with a very cute Rufus puppy (who is, of course, one of the best cuddle buddies you could ask for when you’re sick) and watch some Xena. I really watch that show for Gabi. Can’t help it, she’s hot.

Twitter

I got a twitter a long time ago, but I’ve only recently started abusing it to its full extent. I simply forgot it existed. Now, I don’t have that problem (I sound like a bad infomercial). I downloaded Twitterfox, a plug-in for Mozilla Firefox. It’s really cool, and makes it incredibly easy to update my twitter at any moment. Speaking of my twitter, it’s here.

But yeah. I’ve jumped on the Twitter bandwagon. I want to take it one more step. Does anyone know of a good wordpress plug-in that will show my tweets (that sounds dirty) on my sidebar? I found a couple, but I’d like to hear other opinions.

What do you think?

Edit: Okay, so I just used Twitter’s code instead of a plug-in. It works fabulous! Go me.
