And suddenly things are right in the universe again.

Last night I mentioned on twitter that Klout had updated my twitter score, and that they had deleted “Satan” as a topic that I was influential about.  They replaced “Satan” with “schizophrenic”.  Frankly, I’m not even sure how I feel about this.

Then today I heard they updated me again.


And suddenly, all felt right in the universe again.

  1. Oh, God.

    Well, at least we know you’re still functioning.

    Corinne recently posted I lived in a closet..

  2. Obviously, these are all things that go together. Everyone knows that schitzophrenics are actually possed by Satan who, you might be aware, Never Sleeps.

    That might be the answer to all your problems, actually. Just saying.

  3. You should first and foremost be influential about Giant Metal Chickens. Klout… what a racket.

  7. Frankly, this is just impressive.

  8. It all works out in the end. 🙂 And I just introduced my SIL to your blog post about Beyonce. She’s still laughing.

  9. And you are a “Taste Maker”. Good luck finding fresh avocados in this weather.

    Eric recently posted Zombie Apocalypse Team... ASSEMBLE!!!.

  10. I barely understand Klout – but I am pretty sure I should be influential about Ted Mosby’s hair. my blog comes up as the third search term for those key words….That means something? Doesn’t it?

    To be fair, I am sure Satan has issues with both insomnia and schizophrenia.

    Deidre recently posted I cook other things besides lemon desserts - No, really, it's true!.

  11. I’m influential about coffee, children, and margaritas. That’s a little bit fucked up. It was fine til they brought the children in on it. But I used to be influential about the Icelandic volcano, so it’s an improvement. At least people actually HAVE children. Not even Iceland claims that volcano.

  12. I would have to agree with Jamie (above), at least all of your “topics” are in the same category. Too funny.

  16. “Satan” is really a typo. What they mean is “santa” as in James Garfield Santa. There. That makes sense.

  17. I think I might have preferred Satan… Not that I *prefer* Satan…
    Not that there’s anything wrong with that…. hopefully God doesn’t hold that against me.

  19. They forgot that you are influential about “Identifying DoucheCanoes”

  20. I happen to think that you’re pretty influential about towels…as in influencing people to buy giant chickens named Beyonce instead of them. Klout is dumb…I should be influential about “pants” since that’s my little girl’s nickname and I talk about her all the time on twitter…stupid Klout doesn’t know anything…

  39. Hmmm…..My ex-husband is Satan. I have insomnia in the worst way, going on 9 years. I’m just missing the schizophrenia. Rock on, sister. You will always rule in my world.

  40. Klout has deep-seated issues. It thinks I am some guru on the state of Indiana, Scott Pilgrim and tattoos. I had to ask someone who this Pilgrim guy is and I am still uncertain, and I don’t know what I did to get saddled with tattoos. But Indiana? It’s beyound perplexing.

    I tweet constantly about what a douche Rick Perry is but apparently no one can be an expert in something so basic to the human understanding.

  48. So, why exactly does klout think you are influential about “schizophrenic”? Or does whoever come up with this shit read your blog? If so, I’m not sure even the rest of us came to that conclusion. Even with klout’s input. Unless… Beyonce is really just a manifestation of a voice in your head that the rest of us can see? Wow. Suddenly so much makes sense.

  49. Don’t feel bad. Klout thinks I’m influential about heaven, vodka, and children. Which kind of explains how my son got here. Heh.

  54. Initially Klout called out my influence on diablo, homeschooling and Mac. Great. I make my living developing PC laptops (not Mac), write for my church’s blog and can only attribute the trouble I’ve had with my public-schooled teens/YAs for the homeschooling influence. Now everything’s changed. I’m influencing “authors, training and writing.” Clearly, I can give you some tips on how to overcome Satan, but you might be up all night arguing with yourself about it.

I have nothing at all as far as influential topics go. Think I’ll constantly tweet about rutabagas or something, see if it shows up at all.
