X is for X Marks the Spot!

X is for X marks the spot!

Well, sort of. Today's posts were ones I saved around the time they discovered Richard III's grave:

Ever had a ghost in your bed? And your mother thought it was a sheep?





And, as Kate Beaton says:


"Now that they found Richard III's body for sure you know what comes next right"?

I guess you had to be there...

Twitter vs Facebook...
I did notice, while sorting through all my Twitter favourites for this challenge, that a number of conversations that were funny at the time, were less amusing when they required lots of explanation if I wanted to share them long after the original event.

In that respect, Twitter is very much a real-time conversation with all sorts of friends and people around the world, offering something you can't get in the more static interactions on Facebook and other places. It's like a party that's going on all the time, and even if you don't drop by for a few days, you can always 'enter a new room' and rejoin a conversation at any moment of the day. Bring your own drinks!

I agree with your take on Twitter vs Facebook. Now I have my tweets posted on Facebook so that I don't have to go there as often. I just find it annoying.

BTW. Did you read what got them looking for Richard III there in the first place? It's the stuff of story books. :-)

Good X, Deniz! The news about Richard's bones has been fascinating.

Good way to tackle the "THE X"!
Richard will need some serious cosmetics for that film...
Poor Richard III; had a carpark built on top of him, and he still can't be laid to rest because everyone's fighting over him!

Something ironic about finding his remains in a parking lot.
Yes, it's like a party, that appeals to me also.

I prefer Twitter - but I keep my Facebook a/c in order to keep up with what the far-flung family's up to!

Richard III's body was discovered about 20 miles from where I live - there was a lot of local Twittering!

Hope you've had fun with the A-Z hop!

What an usual place to find "his" bones...


Twitter is much more "in the moment" than Facebook... I prefer Twitter. Not that I am on it that much. I am more of a BLOGGER DUDE...

Have a nice weekend, Deniz...

Poor Richard III---He'll never get actually laid to his rest. They'll end up moving him somewhere else.

You described Twitter perfectly! I love that explanation.

Thanks for sharing about Richard III- I never saw the picture!

Thanks for coming by everyone!
I missed that part, Misha - will go read some more.
You're right, Michael - blogging is even more fun!
