@SnarkyPlatypus [sigh] Another trigger word. There’ll be a match some time and I’ll want to both kill Prince William AND act like a chicken.

@SnarkyPlatypus Sturgeon’s Law http://is.gd/8i2 does NOT explain Crystal Antlers. All hail Eris!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Are you allowed to invoke Crystal Antlers in advance? Hmmm… must check ritual operating instructions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein @JonoH Oh, yes, of course GIFTS of alcohol perfectly fine… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Dead cows would also be perfectly acceptable. We don’t NECESSARILY have to have beer or wine with it.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH @ApostrophePong and I are ravenous, however. Noodles somewhere sunny sounds good. Can haz noodle bar with sun?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Be warned! VERY strict laws about offering alcohol as prizes in competitions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

OK, Twitterverse, lunch suggestions please! @ApostrophePong and I are bored with our usual Newtown/Enmore choices.

@SnarkyPlatypus I would prefer Iemma to be deposed over a bottomless pit filled with vipers, brimstone and pointed sticks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@lewellyn Confirmed. I have no problem with the magnet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@iamarigby “Sycophantic rectum” to you too! Hmmmph!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iamarigby

@TimNoonan I am not fuelling your endless lust for filth and perversion, sir! I am a man of quality and respect!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@garthk The farm animals are similarly grateful. They do look yummy, though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

How to grow creative people. Nice video explanation. http://is.gd/wWm

@stevendoyle “why would a talking insurance gekko have an english accent?” I often find myself asking that. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stevendoyle

@ApostrophePong Look, I’M not the one who put a 19yo Robbie Williams naked in a video clip, m’kay? Nor his naked friends.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@SnarkyPlatypus I think @AostrophePong and I are going WAY beyond Billie Piper. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ApostrophePong Noooo… that THAT! :P http://is.gd/I2s YouTube at 20 paces? Duelling FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

This sound would be MUCH better. http://is.gd/I2m

via Twitter Web Client

I can hear this sound coming from the next room. http://is.gd/I2k I am not impressed.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewdotnich Your dream interpretation is delightful. http://is.gd/I1D I’ll respond when I have input from others too. Love program name!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@agibson ~1KTF vs ~100K1OF theory depends on cost of acquisition vs cost of maintenance vs income. If $ is the aim rather than “attention”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to agibson

I am not a filthy Vulcan. I just wish to make that clear.

@Seanabc @R1ss4 @thotcriminal361 @Ty_Coughlin Hi an hope you find something of interest in my Twitterstream, and vice versa. [waves]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to micropkr

I am now searching my cupboard for “drugs with no side effects”. Also, perpetual motion machines, elixir of youth etc.

via Twitter Web Client

@SuperMacMan “If alkaloid is a drug that can have side effects, DON’T DO IT!” ALL do. The alkaloid in question is caffeine. Ever had it?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Shaun_R

Emerges. Monday. Last day of the financial year. Why do I suspect this is going to be very, very hectic? Alkaloid dosage doubled!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus The Anglosphere and Shanghai, perhaps. I suspect I’m in the bit marked “filler”. Maybe “cocktails”. http://is.gd/Ifb

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Platypus’ +3 venom > morphine? Cool, I might finally get some decent sleep!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Just to clarify, if it’s imported beer it doesn’t count towards your calorie count, right? This is Budejovicky Budovar, so fine.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein Hugh MacLeod is on Twitter as @gapingvoid. He has a clue, even if a fan of Margaret Thatcher. Everyone has their weaknesses.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@SnarkyPlatypus Platypus photo shoot? You mean with a big net AND A FRYPAN! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein For “social objects” read Hugh MacLeod… http://is.gd/6QM is a good a place as any to start.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Drinking Czech beer sure beats working on what I was meant to be doing.

@jeffsonstein Wikipedia crossing street: “You say a truck is approaching? Original research! Show me authoritative reference!” [loud splat]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@YiyingLu I bow down before your cetacean wonderfulness! @garthk and @mpesce reckon we should meet to help plan your world domination.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to YiyingLu

@jeffsonstein I am not only a perfectionist, I am perfect in every way. Just ask @funkycoda and @SnarkyPlatypus and @andrewdotnich.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein @DenubisX wow, I have The Golden Bough in paperback, read it years ago. Turgid, yes, but fascinating.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@funkycoda I’m fairly sure that Mary Poppins doesn’t drop the f-bomb and the c-bomb quite as often as I do.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to funkycoda

@garthk That’s OK deskbound. But what about a MacBook Pro needing ~2TB when at desk, but still want portable? @ApostrophePong needs this. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly the vampire platypus looks great big, but doesn’t scale to an icon. Cropping it loses the wings, which kills the joke.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@funkycoda But we are ALL stardust. And, according to @andrewdotnich, I am Mary Poppins. You MUST deal with this.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to funkycoda

@monkeyjedi Welcome to my Twitterworld, fellow human. How did I blip up in your world, if I may ask? (To the 3 marketers I blocked, FOAD…)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to norton_tim

I’m going to base my next episode of Stilgherrian Live Alpha on this video. http://is.gd/IcD Imagine me doing this. With or without beard?

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat BB can be enjoyed as a psych experiment that wouldn’t otherwise pass an ethics committee. But I haven’t watched this yeah.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Big Brother website. I click on “Watch BB”. All they offer is clips from yesterday or a 3 Mobile phone plan. I can’t ACTUALLY watch. FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client

YES! I am #9 on the leader board at http://tweet140.com! I AM A TWITTER GOD AND YOU MUST ALL BOW DOWN BEFORE ME! [opens fly]

via Twitter Web Client

@IanKath Sorry, I’ve missed a link somewhere. Why am I a connection to adrenochrome? http://is.gd/Ic1

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanKath

@ApostrophePong Yes, Tim Knappstein of Clare Valley is one of my favourite wineries but his Enterprise Brewery has just produced GOLD lager!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@Entregreeneur Yes, @ApostrophePong and I have been together 7+ years. For Bangkok stories see http://is.gd/IbB and http://is.gd/IbD Enjoy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

@trib We will give more sensible suggestions when at home with proper keyboards and intertubes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

You. Can. Get. Anything. In. Bangkok. Anything.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Silom Rd, firing range. For about $30 give ur 10yn an assault rifle with a full mag of live ammo. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Actually, hire a longtail boat for the day and go wherever u want. River, canals… Cheap by Aust standards.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@SnarkyPlatypus I do not sway awkwardly to music. Chang yet!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@trib Or just catch a canal aoat in rush hour, scarier than any amusement park ride.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Get a book “Very Thai”, a fun explation of Thai popular culture. Also Hi5 is the big social media site in .th.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Blondie “Heart of Glass” and house SSB FTW!

via Twitter Web Client

@Mediamum Oh I love games. Just difficult now because m.twitter.com is FUCKING B0RKED!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

60 Minutes promo on TV: “New evidence on Belinda Neal, the night she went bananas at Iguanas.” Classy.

@shanegold Comparison of Wikipedia & Encyclopedia Britannica was done by Nature journal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to shanegold

@Alegrya That is not an owl. Cartoon ornithology FAIL!

via Cloudhopper in reply to Alegrya

Mobile. Watching out for owls.

via Cloudhopper

Retweet @PulpSpy: “Current favourite song: A Thousand Eyes by Crystal Antlers” That’s spooky.

via Twitter Web Client

Since the Twitterverse proved useless, @ApostrophePong and I will have noodles at Happy Chef, King St, then some shopping. Leaving shortly.

via Twitter Web Client

If there’s a job ticket that’s been “on hold” for 592 days now, should I perhaps just close it?

via Twitter Web Client

@alanzeyes I understand that the Twitetrstream can be overwhelming. Still you don’t HAVE to drink everything from the fire hose. ;) Ciao!

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein @YiyingLu only joined Twitter on the weekend, oddly enough, thanks to @garthk I suspect. She may be overwhelmed by it all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Surely you should ask @YiyingLu herself to be a judge of the label design? She’s in Sydney, and it IS her whale.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Retweet @jeffsonstein: See also http://tinyurl.com/6x7vwg for text of Vermont “ACT RELATING TO DIGITAL CORPORATE TRANSACTIONS”

Vermont allows company board meetings to be held “virtually”. (In sarcastic article about Second Life.) http://is.gd/IqR

via Twitter Web Client

@SuperMacMan “I didn’t know what alkaloid was”? Ah Apparently there’s this thing called “internetz” where you can look stuff up. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Shaun_R

Mon plan: Deal with MASSIVE pile of bookkeeping & admin tasks; 2pm client meeting Darlinghurst; back to the desk. Little chance of writing.
