#xoxoxolovesandkisses

I'm trying to understand the hashtag thing.  I mean, it seems to be the thing to do--the cat's meow of  Internet awesomeness.  The number sign has never seen so much action in all its menial life.  Not to take away from all the sixth and seventh graders who sign their names with their number next to it (Jayne Clark #11)--that will always be an important role for the number sign to play.  But now, now, the number sign has moved up a notch.  It used to be Miley Cyrus' Hannah Montana.  Now, it is Miley Cyrus' buzz cut.

I've got to say it though, I can't figure it out.  It is the like the Haha of my brother's generation.  Emails from Danny and his peers are littered with hahas to the point that I've started to doubt my sense of humor: hows it going haha.  what time are getting together? tomorrow haha? see you then haha. The mystery of the constant hashtag is almost as puzzling as unfunny hahas.

It's true, I don't give a lot of time to trying to figure it all out.  I don't have a Twitter or an Instagram account (You: what does she not have a cell phone either?) so I just may be too far removed to ever understand.  I'd like to give myself the benefit of the doubt though, so I've spent a little time tonight reviewing some of Jed's friends' hashtags.  I think I'm starting to get it.  You basically put a # in front of anything you want to say and suddenly it rules. Something could go from living it up to #livingitup and it is totally way more awesome.  Now, if anyone in the whole internet wide world, wanted to look up "who is living it up tonight" they might find me.  And wouldn't they be glad?  Totally getting it.

Let me try a few more examples--just to make sure.  So I can post a pic haha and then I can hashtag it and then it rules.

Yes, yes, yes!  I'm loving this!  Now I can include everyone in all my thoughts.  I'm so far behind in this game, you've got to let me try a couple more.

I apologize.  I can absolutely understand why this hashtag thing is so popular!  There is nothing really weird or ridiculous about it!  I'm so glad I tested it out.  #jayniemoonhaha

Haha, you make me laugh ;) I'm a little embarrassed to say that I didn't know "#" was called a hashtag until this while hashtag thing began. I called it "the number sign."

I love my cell phone AND my costco membership more than my husband.

ohmigosh, i'm dying! i've been wondering this same thing with the hahas! i get group emails from my cousin on his mission and i've never seen so many oddly placed hahas in all my life. and i've been trying to imagine him saying haha in a sentence to someone and it cracks me up every time.

#ok this is #super embarrassing because I put a REAL "hehe" (same as "haha" for you people slow to catch on) in my comment on Jaynie's blog about hating team treats and such. Is there a sign for uncool?

#danny and #jayne's mom haha said...

I love Danny!s "haha's" though! From him they are #cute and I mean it!

I am dying laughing as I catch up on your blog, especially this post. I read it last night and now, today, as I look through my instagram feed, everyone's hashtags seem so silly! #nowondericouldntfindyouoninstagram

Are you already decided on what you really want to do with your life? If yes, are you prepared now to venture into another new job or just about to jumpstart into your first job or career ever? Okay, so you might havent precisely set your heart into something definite yet, but whatever that is, well Im sure that its something very rewarding and will truly make you happy. Customer Service Reps Art is one of those subjects that people seeking teaching jobs tend to think of in these terms. However, it is possible to create an online teaching job as an art teacher, even though there are some limitations that have to be accommodated. Many art teachers find it hard to visualise giving art lessons in cyberspace, without the hands-on dimension of teaching art in a studio or classroom. But any art teacher seeking teaching jobs can usefully consider the online teaching jobs option, since it can work well. - Good attitude. Strong back arc; no slouch.
