I don't tweet and don't really follow too many people on Twitter. But I do use the Twitter app to skim headlines. Some headlines are actual news, some are just human interest things. Last week I noticed one about an employee in Toronto who could see a cat in a window of a building across the street. She and her coworkers put post-it notes asking the cat's name. Several weeks went by before a piece of paper showed up with the answer, "Marshall."
They were excited to get a response and tweeted it, and it went somewhat viral. She made a follow-up tweet asking what should she say next with a poll. One option was, "Mew?" Many voted and many replied. I tweeted a reply suggesting, "Not just, 'Mew?' Ask, 'What's mew?'" The employee replied, "Honestly I think this is the winner."
And so she decided to let Marshall know that he is twitter famous. Love it!
Here's a full article about it.
Over this past weekend I went with some men from the church to a retreat up at Lake Lure. I didn't realize it until after, but much of Dirty Dancing was filmed in this area, with the lake being where Johnny and Baby first practiced the lift. I did know of a road that was good for a 10 mile run as I had been there before. Buffalo Shoals Road starts at the dam and goes north along the lake shore for 5+ miles. But not at the lake level. It rises and falls pretty significantly. And my pace did too inversely.
On an early Saturday morning I only encountered 3 cars during the whole 1.5 hour run and all of those were in the last 3 miles. That was pleasant. It was a twisty turny up and down road. The tight curves would have a mirror to help you see oncoming traffic. I saw the sunrise in one of them and stopped to take a photo.
