Made it rain

at the club last night.

Not how it works

I guess.

The Epic Fight

One of the most annoying yet compelling uses of Twitter is live-tweeting: a sort of embedded reporting from Twitter. In this example, the user blissfork tracks a series of epic fights she’s overheard from her neighbors
.

“I don’t think a rock on a metal band is worth thousands of dollars, but YOU do. YOU convinced me that it’s worth it. But now I wonder.”

“I want to marry you? That’s like saying I want to go to the museum. When I’m fucking stoned all the time my feelings don’t match.”

“All I have wanted for YEARS is for our engagementship to move forward. All that I want is you. All that I HAVE wanted is you.”

“I TOLD YOU NOT TO FUCKING DO THAT! I TOLD YOU I AM FUCKING LEAVING YOU! I DON’T LOVE YOU! I DON’T WANT TO MARRY YOU!”

She must really want that engagement ring. She just gave him a blowy in the living room.

while walking hand in hand down the street.
