If anyone wants an argument against so-called “intelligent design”, look at the human spine. Look at mine, for example. Factory recall!

OK, I can tell that @ApotrophePong is home because there’s no noises from aircraft landing on 16R but the WiFi has gone dodgy.

@SnarkyPlatypus No, herpes is PERMANENT, not impermanent. And I didn’t get herpes from Vodafone. Well, not yet, anyway.

Going off-grid to save battery and offensively nasty data charges. And to rest my eyes. And brain. And kneecaps, Mistress. Yes, my kneecaps.

Loose in Darlinghurst. Uhoh.

Mobile to Darlinghurst for 1615 chiropractor, 1630 client meeting, then… dunno!

ZOMFG! Wayne Swan says “ZOMFG!” Well, at least in today’s @firstdogonmoon cartoon. ;)

@jeamland Counting drinks: “Just the one thanks”, “If you insist”, “Maybe one for the road”, “Oh why not?” “Another round, mate?”, “Sure!”

@garthk That Lehrer song includes the lyric “I’d rather marry a duck-billed platypus.” http://tinyurl.com/6aygnm @SnarkyPlatypus, take note!

@Nickhodge @SnarkyPlatyous I love it when OTHER people talk about my parents. It’s kind of Oedipus by Proxy.

I just found three DVDs labelled “1 of 2”, “2 of 2” and “3 of 2”. Glad it’s not my handwriting.

@mpesce Why does the shape of the room affect whether you are ashamed of the sex you are having in it? I am now even more confused.

Nice to see that SHOUTING ABOUT APOSTROPHES got me such a massive response too. ;)

@aDB Twitter favourites are cached pretty heavily and will take a while to show up.

I HAVE MADE A MISTAKE WITH AN APOSTROPHE AND WOULD LIKE TO APOLOGISE TO THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE.

@mpesce Sex shops? In the United States? Nah, you’re mistaken, I’m sure. American’s don’t have sex. Even seeing a breast alarms them.

@timdunlop Good to see you on Twitter. I found that the benefits only showed once I started tweeting more often, and had a bigger network.

RT @jeamland: @stilgherrian “And in today’s episode, I’ll show through the course of the show how whisky works.” Sounds good to me. ;)

@sammyjopeters @stub I know that @SnarkPlatypus and some others are talking about a @stub Karaoke at some point… ;)

@DrMiaow I may be perverse, but I reckon scoring Don Lane was a better deal than Ben Elton.

RT @ChaosNoir: “The UK gets Clive James and Germaine Greer, and Australia ends up getting freaking Leo Sayer… WTF?” Yep, I feel your pain.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Yes, I like the idea of a “how something works” segment. Makes good use of my simplify-explain skills.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t think I’d do well in financial services. They may not like clients being referred to as “greedy self-centred cunts”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus What makes you think I’d hang around with financial planners? Sheesh!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ssharwood I know, all the best news is pre-written. We once had a “standby world news” which sounded plausible, to run in case of problems.

0908 Plumber calls to say sorry he didn’t make 0730. No shit, Sherlock. New time 1030. His name is Brad. At 1040 I post his company’s name.

via Twitter Web Client

@ssharwood It’s the “twitter used to convict murderer” story with a follow-up about “gruesome geocaching discovery”. “Look what I buried!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, another legacy of the Howard government: No USEFUL skilled people of any kind, but a surfeit of financial planners. ;)

Tues plan: Strangle plumber, dump corpse; desk day, with more prod-the-project work; tonight Media in the Pub http://is.gd/14BH

via Twitter Web Client

Waiting for the plumber to arrive at 0730. Yes, I know it’s already after 0830. He’s certainly winning friends and influencing people.

@paulmckeon Oooh yes! Number 3 is the most important piece of advice of all, trust me!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulmckeon

@Limburger Yes, my advice to anyone with a back: 1. Get a replacement. 2. Chairs, good ones always. 3. Don’t be run down by a car.

@markc And you! YOU! Pointing out a flaw in my reasoning! YOU! MUST! DIE! NOW!

@einspruch Um, yes OK, I WILL watch something called “OEDIPUS (with vegetables)” before breakfast. I am brave! http://is.gd/1UqH

Emerges. Notes that there is substantially less pain. Maybe that chiropractor is good for something after all. Now, alkaloids FTW!

via Twitter Web Client

Enough for Monday. Sleep required. Pain not required, but I’m stuck with it. [exit]

@IanKath Yeah backs, necks, sinuses, retina *behind* its blood supply… all dodgy… a wonder the human works at all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanKath

I’m still not sure why things are improved by having a Lego animation for them. They should use vegetables instead.

RT seancarmody: @libmil @Alegrya did you see this one too? Death Star Canteen http://tinyurl.com/2sqgsz Better than “4 Corners”, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@markc But the point is, it ISN’T a time-tracking app. There’s no “duration” field.

@ragnarok1971 Yeah if I wanted some weird fetishest dildo I’d get a quality one from http://www.rent-a-dildo….

@franksting True, there IS a market for anything. http://is.gd/1QdF Tell me about the psychology of THAT device!

Seriously, http://www.ididwork.com/… is aching for a new category of Nobel Prize… [sigh]

@franksting Um, http://ididwork.com is a joke, right? Gawd, next is http://ididpoo.com to log and graph poo volume, colour, slipperiness.
