Finally! Breakfast at Una’s on Victoria St, Darlinghurst. Praise the Success Whale for convincing Mistress Eris to “Just chill a bit, darl”.

@DavidFeng Hang on. Am *I* your consecutive nightmares? Does my power extend to Beijing? Or are these your own nightmares?

@aeoth Well, the computer problem in the next office today WAS a case of “works better if you plug it in and turn it on”. ;)

@StuartLivesey An uncle told me “never learn to shear”, or you’ll end up shearing sheep. I think “never learn Windows sysadmin” is the same.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@StuartLivesey Actually, “booting off odd insertions” (shoosh!) isn’t a Windows thing but a motherboard manufacturer thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

Good news. The server had tried to boot off a USB key instead of C: drive. Fixed. All praise the Success Whale.

How to solve over-crowding on CityRail: shove all of these oxygen-thieves lnto the train’s path NOW!

via Cloudhopper

Yes, you morons! Read “MX” and revel in your collective ignorance. And these sheep get to vote!

via Cloudhopper

I am about to endure CityRail at rush hour. I apologise in advance for the invective which will soon emerge.

@trib I figure @TurnbullMalcolm has about 48 hours to start replying to @questions before we all start laughing at him.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib “If the ears and minds are open”? The current generation of Australian politicians? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!1!!1!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@TurnbullMalcolm RT @zuzu: “Just got spam SMS sent to my mobile from the ACT Liberal party - wtf?? Cnuts.” What’s the story? Stone-age crap!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

@dcw303 I’ll be at The Afternoon Office™ in Newtown shortly. Will leave the Green Park after this ale is finished.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib @mpesce The wonderful thought is that you two or me or a dozen others have far more influence on this community that a party leader.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@mpesce @trib Oh I’m sure a man like @TurnbullMalcolm, who truly cares about human rights, wouldn’t support such ill-thought-out censorship.

@LacqueredStudio Well a Grand Tour to Melbourne should happen before year’s end. Somehow. Stay tuned.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@TurnbullMalcolm Glad to see you here, Mr Turnbull, whatever your views. Now just loosen up and speak like an actual human. :) The REAL you.

@michaelmeloni A woman living opposite has been feeding the cockatoos and now ~10 gather each afternoon to show off and eat from her hand.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@kcarruthers I don’t think the man from the David Lynch movie who runs that motel would like his towels being called “gay”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers I think the towels are pretty special though, particularly the arrangement. And the colour. http://is.gd/46VL

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

I shall have another ale at the Green Park before deciding my next step towards world domination. Plus it’s nice to watch the cockatoos.

@craigspry@stilgherrian your tweet caused me to find this site http://whalepenis.org/” Sorry, this is MY fault WHY, exactly? :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to craigspry

@timeyles That kind of mistake is unforgivable when you already have one gender-confused whale on your hands.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timeyles

@timeyles Yes, that was pretty special. “Could this be Colin’s mother?” Um, no. See this 2m long organ? That’s a WHALE PENIS! Morons.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timeyles

@jpoh Well the ABC showed a photo of a whale penis on “Media Watch” the other week. If it’s good enough for Jonathan Holmes… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jpoh

Do you think that Success Whale would have an enormous penis?

via Twitter Web Client

@joshnunn @bengrubb Senator Conroy is simply following the timetable mapped out by his Liberal predecessor a year ago. This is not news.

@LacqueredStudio If you lived and worked in Sydney you would understand the need for VAST QUANTITIES OF STRONG ALCOHOL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@kcarruthers There’s a photo of Success Whale at http://is.gd/46VL but, yes, I reckon I can do a suitable avatar image. All praise SW.

@kcarruthers Joe Hockey on Twitter? He could replace the Fail Whale if they added a few more little birdies.

@SnarkyPlatypus Hello, Thirsty Thirsty Hippo! ;) I’m free to channel your Bacardi, tho Campari & Soda would go down a treat. 3 litres pls.

Watching a sulphur-crested cockatoo showing off by swinging from a power cable by his beak. Full loops.

@Alegrya Actually I could managed a bloody great vat of vodka at the moment. And then fall asleep in the afternoon sun.

Enjoying the nutty taste of James Squire’s Amber Ale at the Green Park Hotel, Darlinghurst. I lied about the “nest stop”, I know. So sue me.

Wrapping up at Darlinghurst (it’ll take 5 mins). Next stop: The Afternoon Office™ and a bloody gre… um, a small mineral water.

@kdelarue Oui, I knew Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” was produced by Jim Steinman (Meatloaf’s producer). @SnarkyPlatypus tells.

@duncanriley Nice piece in Crikey on the Australian government Internet filtering plan, Sir! Thank you. http://is.gd/4e8E

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

@lelak The thing about “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is that it goes beyond spelling into an entirely new universe of communication.

@deanlk Disagree with http://is.gd/4dYZ. Re-hashed media releases and “cost too much” ARE the only angles on Apple’s incremental laptops.

@LacqueredStudio 80s synth-pop DOES answer all the questions. Prove me wrong, heathen!

@mpesce Oh. “Babylon AD” is a MOVIE?!?!?! Sorry, I was on a very different thread there… [shuffles feet] Yes, a bad review should do.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Watching @SnarkyPlatypus and @LacqueredStudio merge into a megacloud of 80s synth-pop overload.

@SnarkyPlatypus Welcome to Saturday. It’s going to be pretty special. I will ensure that, fellow sock-puppet.

@synapse Yes, @TurnbullMalcolm IS the man himself. @trib and @mpesce and I were talking about this yesterday evening.

@docbaty True. Waking up in central NSW and blasting everyone with “Hungry Like The Wolf” before breakfast was full of WIN, though.

@erkpod I haven’t gotten the live stream from the camera to work yet, but I’ve had other things on my mind. (I have a “cult” following, eh?)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

On the table there is a stuffed toy, a Dolphin torch, a sanitary wipe-cloth and a FireWire cable. What HAS been happening in here?

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong I don’t think the federal government would sponsor a peyote-ridden road trip to Woomera. Goddam you, Kevin Rudd!

@ApostrophePong Well, people seem to be keen to send me on another road trip. With peyote, apparently. Who’s sponsor THAT?

I ask Google “How big is a whale anus?” and it comes back to me! This is pretty fucked up.

Emerges. Hazy memories. Something about a whale, was it? “Floral daleks”? “Hip-hop lesbians”? My Twitterstream explains nothing! WTF?

@bronwen “Its anus is a big as your mouth”? What are you saying here, girl? I’m QUIET!
