Chilly Weather, Chili Food, & Twitter Advice

So they weather dude on the moving picture box says we have a cold front about to come through.  I personally am enjoying the current shorts weather, but that may change.  And in prep for this change, I went ahead and made some chili.  But here’s the kicker – I made it with Pumpkin.

You won’t be chilly after eating this chili. (I apologize for that last joke, especially to the people of Chile)

I know everyone has their own chili recipe, as do I.  But I also like to be different.  So as I was collecting ingredients at the grocery, I saw a can of pumpkin.  Yes, that’ll do.  So I made my normal chili, then added the can of pumpkin.  It turned out good!  And of course, it went well with a pumpkin ale!  Anyway, the cold weather and the chili fuel should be good for my upcoming workouts!!!

So there’s that.  Now here’s this.  Twitter Advice:  If you want to get a lot of action on your twitter account, just do this:  Get a Verified account holder to retweet your tweet and to talk about it on the highest rated radio show in town.  That’s what I did.

This morning I had a lot of action on my twitter.  You see, a local TV/Radio comedy dude (Gordon Keith) gave a bus tour that follows the Lee Harvey Oswald trail that he took after he left the Texas Schoolbook Depository after Prez Kennedy was shot 50 years ago tomorrow. 

This guy is obsessed with LHO.  And he posted a photo on his Twitter of the tour bus.  Wellll, the seat next to him in the photo was unoccupied.  I couldn’t help it, I quickly Photoshopped in LHO’s ghost sitting next to him.  Then I tweeted it to him.  He retweated it and talked about the photo on the radio.  As soon as that happened, my account started blowing up (relative to me).  Here’s the photo….

Hauntingly creepy.

Hauntingly creepy.

So there you go, that’s all you have to do is get a celebrity to retweet you and talk about it on the radio if you want some Twitter action.  You’re welcome.

What about you?  Ever seen a ghost?  Any weird chili adaptations?  Any Twitter advice?

  1. Can’t say I’ve ever seen a ghost…but I have had my blogger idols (yes, I have them) retweet and respond to some of my tweets, which kind of makes me feel like a big deal.

    • Well, know that I know what it means to you, as one if your blogging idols, I promise I will respond and/or retweet at least one of your tweets. 😉

  2. Hahaha thanks for the tip. I really need to get on the cool people train and join twitter…one day.
