Twitter You're No Help At All

Photo courtesy of FreeDigitalPhotos.net

I was put into Twitter time-out for 7 days and it was so frustrating!  For whatever reason Twitter decided to shut down my posting ability and my pleas for help from their "Technical Support" went unheeded.  Not even a robo-email stating "We've received your notice and will get back to you" blah blah blah. Nothing!  For 7 days!  

Their website "Help Center" was a joke.  Under the FAQ's for being locked out of your account it said "Wait an hour or so, the lock will clear on its own".  Ahem.  I'm on day 7 and that's not happening. At the bottom of the page it asked - "Still Need Help? Contact Support".  However that took me to a prompt to Reset My Password which would then spin me back to my homepage that was notifying me that my account was locked. Yes! I know!  Round and round I go. So frustrating!!!

The other morning, somehow I was able to find a way to get my account back up and running.  I feel that this tip I found on their site was a fluke because I haven't been able to find it since. All I know is that I'm back chatting with my Twitter pals, sharing things that make me smile, good deal info. and my Instragram photos on my Twitter account now.  It's weird how I felt not having this access for 7 days :-p

If this is happening to you let me share how I was able to regain my Twitterverse access.

  • While at your Twitter Homepage go to "Settings"
  • From the menu that appears on the left of the page click "Apps"
  • On the "Applications" page you will see every app that you have allowed to access your Twitter account.  (Ex. Instagram, TweetDeck/Hootsuite) Click "Revoke Access" to all apps.
  • Refresh the page and click the button to Reset Password
There are certain accounts that I have returned access to my Twitter account and things are so far, so good.  However, it's been 10 days since I sent my first S.O.S. message to their support team and I still haven't heard anything.  *knock*knock*  Twitter, is anybody home?

Have you had issues being locked out of an account?  Did you receive help from a support team or did you figure things out on your own?

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
