Don’t call us, we’ll call you

The one where Neal suddenly sounds middle-aged:

Filed under: Lindsay loves Neal — Tags: , , , , — llcall @ 5:19 pm

It’s interesting to watch Neal begin to navigate the world of web networking and blogging. He’s not much of a “networker” in general (that’s putting it mildly), but gaining blog subscribers/followers/friends/comments is his new crack. He used to try to acquire weaponry in his various computer role-playing games; now he watches his blog stats page. Although he’s still a novice in social media use, I’ve had every confidence that he would eventually figure it out.  Until a few days ago, that is, when he said this:

“It’s good to get in with the college kids because they trade links like hotcakes.”

Really? Tell me more about “the college kids” and their link-trading habits! He insists that he still feels like a 21-year-old most of the time, but he’s sure starting to sound like someone pushing 30, don’t you think?

If you have any tips about getting in with “the college kids,” please pass them along. I think he might need them . . .

  1. Pizza parties! Those college kids love pizza parties! Not that I’LL be there, but we should have someone else throw one for us.

  2. Haha, oh yeah, Neal does sound old saying that! Of course, I say stuff like that a lot too. But then again, I was middle-aged by the time I was 13 . . .

    • I was kinda like that too, or so people tell me.

  3. You bet Neal won’t be there; he doesn’t like pizza!

    • Pizza or people…it’s a double whammy!

  4. How ’bout a peanut party? Maybe a strawberry shake party? Not only refreshing, but Neal will lead the pack…

    Seriously, are college kids getting married these days? Having babies? Involved in parenthood? Special ones are, but not really a trend, is it? I’d love to be proved wrong.

    • Stop by BYU one of these days. It’s definitely a trend over there.

      • Regional, then.

  5. Just forwarded you “TheWeed”: I suppose it is another way to go bravely viral…

    Comment by Lorie Call — June 13, 2012 @ 6:51 pm

    • We saw The Weed post a few days ago — that is definitely one way to go viral (though not one that quite fits our situation). Neal’s just hoping that talking about poop incessantly will one day fit the bill.

  6. Haha, this cracks me up. 🙂 Maybe I’ll use that tip to boost my own stats… *checks analytics*
