Hmmm… I spend a few moments responding to comments about Germaine Greer http://is.gd/1uPT and an SF lit discussion breaks out! WTF?

@smurph Ta for the linkage to the @leolaporte tweet about Neal Stephenson’s new book “Anathem” http://is.gd/1IJ7

Tue plan: Mostly a work-at-home day, getting the next few projects started. Such a full inbox! Quiet evening, I reckon.

@KevinDV Hi, new followerperson. I guess you’re not in Australia. How did I blip up on your radar? 2 days ago you went to sleep. Back yet?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to KevinDV

RT @ssharwood: Big Neal Stephenson story in Wired. http://is.gd/1IIw a new Stephenson book? Better reinforce the bookshelf again… [thud]

@cpanczak Am I a replicant? I don’t know. I’d kill the wasp, but I’m not a lesbian, Mr Deckard.

Emerges. Almost 0800. 7C. Something has to give, sooner or later.

Fat pigs, mussels and the smell of dried anchovies… bedtime for me. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@dnwallace No, I didn’t buy a fat pig. I AM a fat pig, though. I solved my hunger problems with mussels.

I supposed that I should make my transition to The Warren View Hotel, at the insistence of @jeamland and @garthk.

@markhjones How can you cope in Turramurra with a used, soiled thunderstorm… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markhjones

@jeamland Yes, I shall be prepared for all outcomes. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland I feel a certain… pressure. ;) I’m guessing that the Warren View would be a good choice then.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

It used to be much harder to doctor video than still imagery. Not now. http://is.gd/1H9H This is awesome scary.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland Oh there you are! Sadly I am starting to feel crap and thinking a cold, wet night is not a good plan. Though I’m only blocks away.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

RT @jodiem: ABC2 broadcasting “Keating!” live 8pm Wednesday. http://is.gd/1H9l Can haz recording pls while at pub?

via Twitter Web Client

@Alegrya It IS a good night for inside. Did @jeamland find a venue for drinkies tho?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

Actually it IS raining in Enmore, just not particularly heavily so it hasn’t penetrated the tree out the front yet.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Well the incipient thunderstorm at least explains my weird mood. I can’t HEAR the damn things approaching while inside.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Thunder in Enmore. No rain YET, but it can’t be far away. The radar makes that quite clear. http://is.gd/5JA

@lewellyn Tea? Hmmm… yes there is tea, but it doesn’t appeal. 7.30pm I don’t need tannins or caffeine. Hmmm…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

Bugger. I’ve eaten everything in the house except the cats, the shaving cream and my Ian Thorpe exercise bike, but I’m still hungry.

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn Ah yes, Sir! I believe you’re referring to this fine LOLmanatee: http://is.gd/1H7I

@wolfcat Rumour has it the mother is Grant Hackett but that’s just a rumour.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@mpesce That explains everything! IAN THORPE IS A DUGONG… A MANATEE… A SEA COW! Gently munching on the weeds…

@mpesce “He’s just not fat. Not yet.” So, give it… what? 4 weeks? 6 weeks? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce “I’m not fat, I’m just big-boned.” Uhuh. Just like, “I’m not a slut, I’m just a people person”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t know how your Ian Thorpe fantasies are playing out. ;) But he’s looking worse than I think I ever have there.

@stub Pub Trivia this Wed night, Marlborough Hotel, Newtown. Grab tables from 6.30pm, game on 8pm. 15+ tweets allege attendance so far.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stubbbbbb

Oh nice one, @spinopsys! “Thorpie is fat” says it all, really. http://is.gd/1H5q I’m feeling rather good about myself now.

via Twitter Web Client

@deconstructo Not booze. Well, at least no more than a glass of wine for dinner. Must save myself for @stub Pub Trivia on Wednesday. ;)

The problem with all the managavatars is that it removes many “points of difference”, making it harder to scan one’s timeline for people.

via Twitter Web Client

The workday, it hath ended. Two (relatively boring) client websites cut live. Gym cancelled by poor sick @SnarkyPlatypus. What next, people?

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris Your 2yo son is kissing my fish-avatar? Um, are you sure that’s hygenic? LOL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@joshsharp You COULD drop “www” from URLs and I think one SHOULD, except BigPond hosting seem incapable of getting sites to work without it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to joshsharp

@tristankenney [smirks] I just saved having to re-code a shitload of Flash files ‘cos the images they reference have all moved. ZZZAAAPPPPP!

Ah, except that if I admit to knowing regexp I’ll have to do it more often… Um… God just handed me a regexp, m’kay?

I know it was a Full Moon yesterday, but if people don’t sort out their mood disorders quick smart it’s bullet-in-the-kneecap time for them.

@Limburger Re goals being one’s own cf “imposed”, well, goals like “Own a Ferrari”. Imposed? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@dizzystuff Mind you, my life is chaos. Goals? GOALS? Journey is interesting tho, if we’re allowed to say “journey” outside Australian Idol.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@dizzystuff 140-char version: Yes. ;) Look at the goals that come to mind, ask yourself “Why?” Why THAT goal? What does it represent re you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@ssharwood I may wel take you up on the Vernor Vinge borrow-offer. I’ll drop you a DM when the house slips out of Silent Running.

@wolfcat You’re showing me this photo of Obama? http://is.gd/1IQU Next it’ll be Putin shirtless! http://is.gd/1IUI

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@dizzystuff “Do the big goals change b4 u get there?” Yes. Always. Everything is constant change. Plans that don’t adapt WILL fail.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

I love that my Twitterstream can include Germaine Greer AND The Bangles, Umberto Eco AND t.A.T.u, regexp AND fish-kissing.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Vernor Vinge? OK, I see words like “2007 Hugo Award for Best Novel” so maybe I should look him up.
