@TimNoonan Heh! Well we both work in creative modes, and perhaps the rainy day creativity is a universal human trait?

@StephenKelly Oh true, I’d forgotten the floods. And now, I notice, the leak in my office roof is dribbling.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StephenKelly

@leadegroot Oh I LOVE the rain! Give me winter, give me precipitation! I find it perfect for reading, writing, pondering.

The world’s ugliest papaya plant is on Agar Rt, Marrickville.

Taking a break from essay-writing. Marrickville Organic Markets for a while instead. Listening to currawongs and frogs.

@zern If Outlook’s .exe file changes sufficiently, McAfee’s spyware protection flags it as a new program, thence blocked. Normal.

@limburger2001 Yes, Quiet Riot. Now tag it properly, you lazy sod. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@TimNoonan Well, Queen / Freddie Mercury is more tautology than oxymoron, no?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@Mediamum Hey I’ve already written over 1000 words, I’m happy to take a wee break. :P

@jowyang New Kids On The Block (now, anyway). Hat-tip @limburger2001: “Time has not been kind to most of them.”

“Trouble at t’paper”: my essay about the Fairfax journalists strike, finally online. http://is.gd/2A8d Now back to what I’m writing today…

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm. Cognitive dissonance. I see this avatar and think, “Who is the strange woman talking to all my friends and saying such weird things?”

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Well let’s face it, we’d all love to see Julie Bishop in a scrag fight full stop.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@andrewbarnett @StuartLivesey OK, this is now too much imagery for a Monday morning, even for me. Even with my new avatar.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett So, how’s the sports training bra going for you today? Can I offer you a fresh new avatar?

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Hello, welcome to Full Moon Monday, you have been warned.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@SnarkyPlatypus [waves] I just thought I should wave to you about now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@bindapple So, your tweets are all just links to elsewhere with no explanation. What’s the value-add c.f. just subscribing to your blog?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bindapple

@nwjerseyliz “Guinea pigs are the only acceptable furry substitute for children”? No, you clearly lack the right kind of imagination. ;)

@charispalmer @spatially @RaniaG Hello, new (to me) people. This may not be the most representative day to see me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to charispalmer

@Mediamum “How to be more like trad journalists”, eh? So, sessions on smoking, drinking, swearing, bitterness and whingeing?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

@middleclassgirl But you have to admit it, this woman just HAS to be Governor of Bangkok! The dress! The hair The veil! http://is.gd/2CqX

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

Ah yes, this avatar is MUCH better! Toranee
Rithee-thamdamrong FTW!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh don’t worry about the white powder, just SEND THE GOAT!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ApostrophePong I agree. Of the Bangkok Governor candidates’ mugshots http://snurl.com/3q73o Leena (7) brilliant but Toranee (12) is WIN.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, can I have some of your Monday Perky then?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Mediamum Gifts for you: “Trouble at t’paper” http://is.gd/2A8d and “Sunday Thoughts about Journalism” http://is.gd/2AAB Well, for everyone.

RT @andrewbarnett: “The underpants I cleverly laid out last night to find easily… this morning turned out to be a sports halter bra.” See?

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Monday. The Full Moon is at 1913 Sydney Time. This is going to be a hell day, I reckon.

via Twitter Web Client

I shall now turn into a cantaloupe, or possibly a holocaust, according to the spell-checker. I meant coelacanth but it’s so ignorant. [exit]

@misswired If a “bed experiment” involves hoi sin sauce, I do not wish to be a part of it kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@hortovanyi Nah my Sunday evening is being managed perfectly. By other people. Who I can blame.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

@stub Pub Trivia is this Wed night at the Marlborough Hotel, King St, Newtown. Be there or be rectangular.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stubbbbbb

So, we’re coming back fron the shops now. Thank you, @misswired.

via Cloudhopper

@lewellyn @SnarkyPlatypus I’ll be leaving you two alone together while I pop down the shops. Now play nice, y’hear?

@SnarkyPlatypus For a moment there I thought you said MY avatar was a psychosexual disturbance.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @a_makohon: Rosemary Watson does Cindy McCain http://is.gd/2AGz & http://is.gd/2AGK Cheers! :)

@dcw303 (Did I mention that Leena Jangjanya (ลีนา จังจรรจา) is the most beautiful, most sexy woman in all of Thailand?) http://is.gd/2AAF

@dcw303 I have to keep saying this to SO many people, but, “Your psychosexual disturbances are really not my problem.” ;)

@mediahunter If Sarah Pain DOES become VP, indeed, Tina Fey has 4 years of solid, well-paid work ahead of her. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mediahunter

@erkpod Weatherzone’s radar seems delayed by the same amount. It’s presumably the same radar, different crayons.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

RT @ChrisSaad: Tina Fay does Palin. http://tinyurl.com/6mzpqx “I was mayor of the crystal meth capital of Alaska.”

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod No that’s the Bureau of Meteorology. Weatherzone has some interesting features though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

One of the candidates for Governor of Bangkok is promising city-wide WiMax of 75Mb/sec. http://is.gd/2ABX Scroll down to candidate 8.

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod Yeah the weather radar imagery at http://is.gd/5JA is delayed 10 mins. You have to pay for the live feed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@erkpod The radr shows the next rain band about to hit Penrith HARD. Though the biggest cell is just north of you. http://is.gd/5JA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

RT @limburger2001: ‘I dunno… I think she’s got her make-up gun set to “whore”.’

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 Oh, I can’t imagine Leena with LESS makeup. She has barely a trace on as it is! It’s remarkably subtle.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

Leena! Leena! Leena! [swoon] The most beautiful, sexy Leena Jangjanya (ลีนา จังจรรจา) is RUNNING FOR GOVERNOR OF BANGKOK! http://is.gd/2AAF

@mpesce Plz does not encourage me to explain teh e-bogans kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@TimNoonan “A scent called ‘ambiguity’ for all those guys who can’t decide who they want”? Yeah spilt beer and un-emptied ashtrays.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@limburger2001 Why is that whenever something involves sex with animals, you suddenly pop up?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

1. The Grumpy Baker is misnamed. 2. My raspberry muffin is relatively unsullied.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I have met an e-Bogan, but it meant something a little different…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: “You will reek of unfulfilled cat lust. There’s an idea for a fragrance.”

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @ApostrophePong What could be more public than Twitter? Global and Google-index’d! http://is.gd/2Ayg

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@SnarkyPlatypus No fortunately the empty-scrotum’d cat limits his sexual adventures to my jacket… which I shall wear on Stilgherrian Live.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce Soz, but my tea had been interfered with and my muffin was next.

STOP BUGGERING WITH MY RASPBERRY MUFFIN YOU INTERFERING LITTLE CUNT!

@LacqueredStudio Alas, I think the Cult of Personality won’t be enough. In the Bangkok Post’s latest poll, Khun Toranee only scored 0.55%.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@LacqueredStudio Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! Toranee! :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

Excellent! Already I’m a Google top 10 result for “Toranee Rithee-Thamdamrong”. God I love the Internet! Do you hear me, God? I love it!

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 Bah! Indonesian names look nothing like Thai, even without the ธรณี ฤทธีธรรมรงค์ bit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@limburger2001 You also mean Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, President of Indonesia, not Thailand, but hey they all look the same, right? :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@mpesce You must admit, of all the candidates for Governor of Bangkok, Toranee Rithee-Thamdamrong (12) is full of WIN! http://is.gd/2CxG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@limburger2001 Hi! :) My new avatar is Toranee Rithee-Thamdamrong. http://is.gd/2CxG That’s a veil as well as Big Hair.

@mpesce I’ll have you know that I just launched Windows to listen to you. The sacrifices I make…

@dizzystuff Yes, thanks for the reminder! @stub Pub Trivia this Wednesday night at Marlborough Hotel, Newtown, with the lovely Reta.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@SnarkyPlatypus Miss Connie from Sneaky Sound System would also make a good Governor of Bangkok, yes. Big hair, and call up the tear gas.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@charispalmer BTW that polemic I posted after Future of Media ended up quoted in Le Monde by Francis Pisani. http://is.gd/2Cu4

@charispalmer The folks who only tweet “their business” look like they’re monomaniacs and… well… tedious.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to charispalmer

@charispalmer Ah yes, thought it was there I met you. “Twittering warts and all is a good thing.” Agreed. You see the full person.
