ROFL! An Australian Dollar (AUD) only buys 22 Thai Baht (THB), usually it’s around 33 to 35. And they’ve got tanks on the street! [giggles]

via Twitter Web Client

So, yes, the gig for driver for the Cowra road trip is still open. http://is.gd/3SdB How can you resist the allure of the Alabaster Motel?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to maadonna

@maadonna Correct. The 6-hour train/bus journey via Lithgow/Bathurst is the ONLY public transport to do the 300km to Cowra.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to maadonna

Right. There are NO RPT flights to Cowra by ANY of the airlines listed as operating in NSW.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus “More churches than pubs”? That’s just… weird. ;) Meanwhile I discover neither Rex nor Qantas fly to Cowra. Time to look wider…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

OoooooooK, the Cowra road trip is now Wed arvo to Thu night, driver slot still needed. http://is.gd/3SdB Also looking at flights.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, there’s my plans for sorting out the media today, and I’m not even out of bed and clothed yet. What will the afternoon bring?

via Twitter Web Client

It sickens me. Logic and reason and science are not politically biased. Parading an array of lunatics does not constitute “balance”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@plasmaegg Oh the ABC is so cowered in fear of accusations of “bias” that they MUST have him on lest they’re labelled Communists.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@plasmaegg Afterwards, primary school children will be allowed to grind Miranda Devine and Janet Albrechtson’s faces into blenders.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@plasmaegg After which, an annual holiday where we all recite the Taxonomy of Logical Fallacies http://is.gd/3UgC and burn Bolt’s effigy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@plasmaegg And furthermore, anyone who has ever paid him to write, or been involved in the transmission of his logic-free idiocy: the same.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@plasmaegg Andrew Bolt needs six bullets to the head, plus a few in the chest to make sure he’s dead, then impaled on a spike as a warning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

My current fear is that conversations @ApostrophePong is having now will change the road trip dates. Tomorrow. Maybe. I will not stress. No.

@limburger2001 “Trying to live the more more racy parts of my sexual life vicariously through others”? That’s called “pornography”, m’lad.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

Australia’s Channel 10 found guilty of “subliminal advertising” during last year’s ARIA awards. http://is.gd/3Ufh

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 I’m keeping my eye on you, Sir! The “hopes” and “wishes” you express start to reveal a disturbing psychosexual pattern.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@jayrosen_nyu Well put, Sir! I know we’re both sick of journalist vs blogger crap, tho I’m writing an essay for MEAA “Future of Journalism”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

RT @jayrosen_nyu: Well, the big reason most bloggers “can’t” do journalism is they are lazy. If you’re not lazy, this does not apply.

via Twitter Web Client

@jayrosen_nyu BTW, @smartbrain has been doing great stuff from Bangkok during riots, tweeting from his motorcycle dashing across the city.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@jayrosen_nyu Still, if journalism was meant to be easy then even bloggers would be doing it in their pyjamas. [ducks] ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@jayrosen_nyu I must admit, I do like the idea of many, bold links also being a good way to skim the story for meaning. Hard to write tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

RT @jayrosen_nyu: Ask the users if they are overwhelmed. Users filter the links. Some are followed. Some glanced at.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@kcarruthers Yes, there ARE only two schools of thought re toilet rolls: over the top, or just plain wrong.

RT @ApostrophePong: I’ll be in bathing suit and posing like a trashy retired lap dancer with XO laptop by the pool at Alabaster Motel, Cowra

@amyderby NZ and sheep are synonymous. 45M sheep for 4M humans. http://is.gd/3UcZ and http://is.gd/3Udf for more.

@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly a Google Images search for “julia gillard minge” isn’t as satisfying as I’d hoped. http://is.gd/3Uct

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus If anyone’s going to “minge it up”, I want it to be Julia Gillard. For obvious reasons.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jayrosen_nyu As @NathanaelB says,”1,031 hyperlinks on a single page FTL!” Surely link overload like that means NONE get followed?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@amyderby Australia is more sheep-friendly than America anyway. Despite what the say about New Zealand.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to amyderby

This plan is subject to change. It contains general advice only and you should contact me directly for specific advice.

via Twitter Web Client

Sun plan: Brunch with @ApostrophePong; tie up many loose ends at my desk before our road trip; train self on new HD video camera for same.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jayrosen_nyu: You want to learn the art of writing well with links? Study http://www.cursor.org/

@SnarkyPlatypus “If I want to sing like Bonnie Tyler…”? While the subjunctive mood is useful generally, it has no place there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@firstdogonmoon @wolfcat Absolutely. Marmite is pure evil, like at the end of “Time Bandits”. @ApostrophePong knows this lesson too, now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

We’re also still after a driver for our OLPC road trip to Cowra Mon arvo thru Tues night. http://is.gd/3SdB Pls pass on to gullible friends.

I’m going back to the electric blue sheep avatar until I clear my desk and get a better focus on today.

Emerges. Slowly. Painfully. 1. Do not skip gym for 3 weeks. 2. Do not over-commit and then suffer excessive stress. Monday. It begins again.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think if you and ANY women’s sporting apparel were involved it’d work for me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Discipline is only a virtue if there’s appropriate costumes.

@Fush Don’t worry, the “show” was just me wandering Enmore Rd and ranting, though we did see @dizzystuff’s naked butt.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

RT @wolfcat: “I too am afraid to go to sleep… but I think that is because of @stilgherrian live.” Excellent, my work is done.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@franksting You think YOUR mind in in raptures? I was the one who DID all that on camera!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@dizzystuff I don’t know whether I want to think about my own prophecies. That was all weird enough. And you were worth every penny. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

I am home now, attempting to comprehend everything that happened tonight.

via Twitter Web Client

That was a very strange way to spend a Sunday night. You should all be ashamed of yourselves.

via Twitter Web Client

So, is the Internet ready for my kind of television?

via Twitter Web Client

Too busy watching “Dancing with the Fucking Stars” I bet… losers.

via Twitter Web Client

Well I’m ready, where’s the audience?

via Twitter Web Client

OK, we’re ready to go…

via Twitter Web Client

You mean like at http://stilgherrian.com/… now? ;) Stand by… plinkies on.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat No! They can’t re-open the Cowra POW camp ‘cos then the hologram http://is.gd/3V4r would have to learn a new script!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@wolfcat I had already planned to go Naked to Cowra, I don’t know a about anyone else.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@dizzystuff Clothing is an attachment. The Buddha teaches us that attachment is suffering. Please remove your clothing.

In fact, I expect the entire world to be organised better than I can do at home in a drunken stupor. Wall St, you have been warned.

The soup was disappointing. I expect food that I’m paying a professional to make to be better than I can make at home in a drunken stupor.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear AirPort, that’s twice now you’ve just turned yourself off, lazy sod. Why is this? Does Steve need to spank you into cooperation?

@dizzystuff Wine stain removal: salt, leave it to absorb the wine, then vacuum off before washing with stain remover.

Awaiting soup and salad at The Warren View Hotel, Enmore. Everything is forgivable if the soup nourishes.

@misswired “Russ” is Russell Crowe. He calls out his own name during sex. See Andrew Denton interview at http://is.gd/3UR1 and search “sex”.

@SnarkyPlatypus Fire. Cleansing fire is your solution. Flame. Bright, fiery cleansing flame. Light a match now. Light it. Light it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@misswired ‘… housemate talking to himself whilst watching the cars doing laps… “Niiiice!” “Ooooooh!” “C’mon!”’ Like “Go, Russ, go!”? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@plasmaegg It’s really annoying. There’s one guy whose face I haven’t matched to a name yet, met him twice (more?) and it’s hard to ask.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

Everybody who was at dinner on Friday, please DM me so I can recall one person’s name and then I won’t have to be embarrassed by asking.

via Twitter Web Client

@thatgrumguy Have a good flight, Sir! May random Sydney people not have affected your psyche too adversely. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thatgrumguy

@plasmaegg My sheep avatar may be suggestive, but this one is even moreso: http://is.gd/3SJ1

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

Attention everybody! Will you please keep your weird sexual fantasies to yourself. Unless they involve me, in which case DM me the details.

via Twitter Web Client

@sammyjopeters Your new avatar is very nice, and thank you thinking it was me who inspired you and not the secret signals in your teeth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sammyjopeters

@pixel8ted Dinner? Dogs? But I was told that was PORK! Bloody restaurants…!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ted

@pixel8ted [smirks] Sorry, I should paste more carefully. ;) How much bloody? Were savage dogs involved?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ted

RT @pixel8ted: “Right hand still sore from Friday night’s pill.” Yeah it can be like that when your man’s away… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to pixel8ted

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh. Well the “Long Pig” link is REALLY here: http://longpigmovie.com/ See, naked URL, not a Rock-Roll. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Well I thought the feral goldfish thing was one of my better ones, a sheep is OK… what next, I wonder?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Did I say “long-ping”? I meant “long-pig” of course. Sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

And speaking of “Long Pig”, look what I found! http://is.gd/3SNC

via Twitter Web Client

@voirol @ApostrophePong No, human flesh doesn’t taste like chicken, but pork. Apparently. Long-ping FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@kcarruthers No, i am the same sheep, it’s all just perception. It’s like one of those fold-out puzzle book.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@StuartLivesey We’re way ahead of you re train/bus to Cowra. It’s 6 hours each way, de-train at Lithgow or Bathurst. Schedules don’t work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@Alegrya Well yes all that has to happen for @stub Pub Trivia is someone to keep repeating the details. :) Reta does the rest.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@Alegrya This Wed was set for @stub Pub Trivia, yes, 3rd Wednesday. But I’ll be away. Anyone want to pick up the baton?

@TimNoonan Oh dear… audio description… where to begin? I refer you to @dizzystuff. There were no undergarments.

@TimNoonan Excellent. Yes, part of my job is to un-repress all of your repressed memories fnord and help you understand your new world.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

@middleclassgirl Yes, there was pants-removal on last night’s “Stilgherrian Live”. It’s in part 4 of the recording, for fast-forwarders. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@mpesce I’m sure your silence over Second Life is only because you don’t want to reveal which furry avatar is yours, Mistress Snufflies. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce You? Arrogant? N e v e r … ;) (Hi, Mark! *waves*)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@dizzystuff No-one asked you to remove your pants on “Stilgherrian Live” last night. You did it all on your own. Without payment.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@Warlach Maybe not “arrogance”, more like “ignorance” and “parochialism”. Still typical though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@Warlach Oh the actual @twitter election-tracking is fine. But the assumption that this is what I want to see is typical American arrogance.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@Nickhodge On the whole, I prefer the gas mask to the plastic panties. http://tinyurl.com/48e4lz

@neerav I haven’t tried m.slander.net yet. I may just switch back to Twitterific or to Twhirl or whatever. Or just kill their goddam pets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@Warlach Maybe we see complaints about the Election Bar because we’re mostly tracking non-Americans?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@firstdogonmoon Hmmm… Twitterpets? @al3x has a long-haired cat http://is.gd/3WBA dunno about @ev and the others.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@franksting It’s slightly vampiric too, I suspect. Riding the emotional energy of the audience. I’m sure performers can relate to that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting Last night’s sudden “Stilgherrian Live” wasn’t “on” anything, but the danger is like being in free-fall. Anti-stress escapism?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@jeffsonstein Blue sheep now = blue depression. This is a VERY tough day right now. I wouldn’t have said that openly but for @blueday2008.

@twitter I’ve complained nicely, I’ve complained angrily. Now I just complain. Please make Election Bar STAY off or I will kill your pets.
