@firstdogonmoon Nice feral goat reference today, Sir! And I do love the FCFCFC.

@mpesce has never been the same since I showed him THOSE pictures of Nikki Webster. http://tinyurl.com/5vragd

@mpesce You leave me and my little pink fish alone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

My salmon has arrived. Hello little fishy…

@SnarkyPlatypus You must not reveal the secret keywords, they are beginning to suspect.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce I think u should be more concerned about certain people’s food fantasies.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Overheard on the bus: “I chose ravioli. Is that on Facebook.”

via Twitter Web Client

Leaving the “delightful surroundings” of the Hotel Cremorne, heading back to the village. There may be snarkiness en route.

@erkpod Please direct all questions of the form “Isn’t [name] Veronica [verb] one of the chicks from t.A.T.u” to @SnarkyPlatypus kthxbai.

Now Channel 7 has a diagram showing Michael Phelphs’… ahem… physical dimensions on various axes.

via Twitter Web Client

Channel 7’s saccharin-sweet hagiography of Alicia Coutts is pukeworthy.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge But I got t.A.T.u and The Veronicas into a sentence last night. It also included “scrag fight”, “@Nickhodge” and “aroused”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@SnarkyPlatypus I think we should ban you from using similes for 72 hours. No similes. Maybe no metaphors either.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I am still very happy that I managed to combine Nikki Webster and Stalin in the one paragraph.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Nothing “fuels” my snarkiness, it’s natural.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers Well, I could always dump the client. But they’re nice people and pay on time. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

CERN and the Large Hadron Collider now tweet at @CERN. (Hat-tip to @brandstaetter.)

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers I go to the North Shore because that’s where this client is based. Other than geography, they’re a very good client. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@tathamoddie Well, I have to leave you with SOME thrills in life, young man… :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tathamoddie

I know I’ll regret it, but Hotel Cremorne gets one more chance…

via Twitter Web Client

Abandoning Mosman, with indigestion. Well, mayee oot indigestion. Indignation.

via Cloudhopper

@SteveMills At least I don’t have to sit here and watch it happening… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BluewaveOM

Thrilled at the prospect of running data backups for a client. At least I don’t have to write down the 0s and 1s manually.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland A cleansing ale on Monday night is quite possible indeed. I shall put a note in my computational time planning aid.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@SnarkyPlatypus No, the Nikki Webster is “Under Southern Skies” from the 2000 Olympics. It’s relevant… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Yay! My Nikki Webster reference got into Crikey. With a video. [smirks] http://is.gd/1nTv I Now THAT’S entertainment. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Seen on Military Rd: ute with business name, “Viagra Scaffolding”.

via Cloudhopper

Time for me to go mobile and head to Delightful Mosman, with lunchage along the way somewhere. I shall be transformed.

via Twitter Web Client

@Alegrya Well are you not the mistress of the @stub profile etc? Twitter, Facebook, other avenues of informatage…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@StuartL And yes, it IS about Rudd not giving people freedom of movement to do their job. Word is he’s a micromanaging control freak.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@trib Yes, Rudd govt seems afraid of acting less they upset someone and lose 0.3% in polls. They need to start governing with confidence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@BrendanB Agreed re Conroy’s dept seemingly a mess. He’s got a lot to fix after the muppets in the portfolio previously. http://is.gd/hji

via Twitter Web Client

@Alegrya @stub Pub Trivia next Wednesday 20 August, Marlborough Hotel King St, Newtown. 6.30pm snarf some tables, 8pm game starts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@trib The frustrating thing about Sen Conroy? I know he’s smart, so why don’t I see a sharp man of action sorting out his portfolio?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@BrendanB Who knows WHAT Senator Conroy thinks. So far the Rudd govt’s done SFA about anything anyway, in terms of actual achievement.

via Twitter Web Client

@fuzheado More seriously, if they’re on Twitter then they’re into the live feeds, surely? TV-only folks won’t be here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fuzheado

@fuzheado Which would you prefer to be part of? The reality of live Olympics, or US-parochial media control delays? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fuzheado

Senator Conroy releases KPMG report which says “price of international mobile roaming is excessive”, “lack of clarity”. http://is.gd/1nOS

RT @glenmcfarlane RT @lizwebpage: “Speaking of the 3 gorges dam and beavers, did you hear Jenna Jameson is pregnant?

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein Google Earth and Google Maps use different datasets. It’s probably just about business/copyright deals (my guess).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein “Sure”? Dunno. Maybe @andrewsayer is an agent of Google’s secret disinformation department.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Now, to see how far the ripple spreads without being corrected… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Oops! RT @jg_rat RT @andrewsayer: Throughout the entire existence of Google Maps, all three Transcaucasian republics have always been blank.

@jeamland That is not me in that photo. http://is.gd/1nJh I am not the wanted man.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@nwjerseyliz Yeah Apple brands their webcams “iSight”, their WiFi gear “Airport”. Just more confusion.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@willhughes Are you suggesting my rule as Tsar should be anything other than arbitrary beneficence?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

@willhughes I’ll allow “the iPhone 3G is the new iPhone” since that’s really “X2 is the new X”. But you shall be killed anyway, just ‘cos.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

Departing for that foreign land known as “the North Shore”. Preparing to reduce tolerance, increase self-centredness, forget politeness.

via Twitter Web Client

@nwjerseyliz Our entire silly film “The Shave” was shot on my MacBook Pro’s iSight camera, so yes. http://is.gd/1lL8

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

Added to the assassination list for when I’m Global Tsar: Any writer who ever talks about new technology as “X is the new Y”.

@tdm911 I could probably dump even more than 1300 to 1700, actually. Maybe a five hour day would work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

A clock that can only run for 16 hours a day? FAIL! http://is.gd/1p1w

Wed plan: AM Mosman client, confirm backups OK; PM Northbridge client, start rebuilding network; evening gym etc with @SnarkyPlatypus.

Emerges. Ponder the pile of things to do, and groans.
