Awful lonesome up there on the point…

So I woke up this morning, which is always a good sign, and I climbed out of my virtual foxhole, picked up my ax and proceeded to march on down the trail the way I usually do. Another day of walking point, drawing fire from left and right, and sometimes the middle.

I glance back via Twitter and I see 516 followers, and it’s good to know they’ve got my back, so I keep on trucking.

And then, while I’m at Rotary, I see some panicky Twitter messages from people who’ve lost their followers, so I look back again — and there’s NOBODY! I’ve got exactly ZERO followers! That whole battalion it’s taken me a year to build up, just freaking GONE…

So I yell out, and somebody explains to me that it was just a glitch, and that they should be back by now.

And I look, and there’s 517 people behind me now. I apparently picked up a straggler from somewhere.

So I keep on walking the point… with my confidence just a tad shaken. If they can just disappear like that, it makes you kind of wonder whether they’re ever really there

    I don’t know who the heck Ashton Kutcher is.

    I follow people like Mike Massimino ( My wife and I saw an IMAX 3-D movie in Myrtle Beach recounting Mike’s exploits with the rest of his Space Shuttle STS-125 crewmates for the last mission servicing the Hubble Space Telescope.

    Hubble 3D was absolutely incredible. The IMAX in Myrtle Beach is also the closest IMAX that is showing Hubble 3D. IMAX in Charleston, Charlotte, Augusta aren’t showing the movie. Raleigh is the next closest.
