thanks to my brothers, i started following THE_REAL_SHAQ on twitter, and it has enriched my life. it really is The Diesel himself. he is always leaving messages like this:
I'm at the fashion sq mall, any1 touches me gets 2 tickets, tag me and say yur twit u hv 20 min
and there's this great account of some twitterers finding him at 5 and Diner and just kind of watching him, too nervous to talk to him, when suddenly they see a new twitter on their phones from shaq:
I feel twitterers around me, r there any twitterers in 5 n diner wit me, say somethin
and then he totally kicks it with them! i think this is the coolest thing ever. it's another reason i wish i were in phoenix right now. james is concerned that shaq is spending so much time on twitter and eating dinner at a restaurant by himself. i have to agree, it doesn't seem right. stressful.
something that i also find stressful is the sign wavers on corners, dressed as uncle sam or lady liberty or little caesar. i don't know, maybe they enjoy it. driving down state street is torture because they're about every two feet. the rule in our car is we always honk and wave. does anyone feel this way? can we also talk about the stress of seeing lonely old men sitting by themselves, or are you still staring at the king of twitteronia?
