Okay folks, after my continuing battle with labrynthitis (minus hearing loss) that looks to continue for another week, I am at least capable now of sporadic physical activity (walking around) and computer use for abbreviated periods before I get all wonky and have to sit still and focus again.

I am confident now that I can manage about 30 minutes online here and there, so I’ve decided to set a date with all of you on Twitter!  This week, from 9:00pm-9:30pm (central time) I will be on Twitter and I invite all of you to join Benn (@agentgenius) and I (@LaniAR).  Often, Tweet-Ups (what we call a physical meet up of people you know from twitter) are held at restaurants, but that’s not my pace, so let’s try meeting up online this week– whatdya say?Because many of my Twitter friends are not in real estate, these will be the ridiculously lame topics I’ll cover, so invite your friends, open a beer (or pop a promethazene) and hop on the ol’ Twitter:

Tuesday: Best Restaurant Chain
Wednesday: Fave Foods
Thursday: Reality TV Gossip
Friday: Obscure Local Laws

    “robert, forgive me- i blame my ears :)”

    I blame mine on everything! By the way Lani, you are only a temporarily (hopefully) member of the hearing loss club so you’re limited by how much you can blame on your ears!

    OMG – I am so happy to hear you are better – you have us on pins and needles!

    Glad to read you are feeling better… That labrynthitis sounds freaky. I hope nothing hurt. I can’t stand ear pain and there is probably nothing I can think of worse than that, other than say, my hands. Carpal Tunnel freaks me out too.
