@StuartLivesey @middleclassgirl I can cope (just) with the concept of an untrustworthy haggis, but why would you end up seeing a nurse?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

Hmmm… The man just leaving the reception area offered the following explanation: “I had a suspicious haggis.” As you do.

via Twitter Web Client

Half a sedative? No, I don’t recall ever having just half. No, I shan’t be operating any heavy machinery today. A whole one? Bless you.

@Reemski I’ve had the same medico for 12+ years now, so he knows… erm, everything. The “family GP” is alas a fading memory for most.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Reemski

@Reemski Shortly after I moved to Sydney I lived in/near Darlinghurst. That’s where my doctor practices. A good long-term GP is Gold.

@ApostrophePong Your thingy lies! It says you are at COFA but I KNOW you are in the living room.

Dear Nokia N80, your plan IS just to show me a white screen whenever I touch you, isn’t it! You know that could led to your… replacement?

@mobilesimmo Hi, I’m following you because apparently I’m meeting you at some Gartner briefing next week. [waves]

@Jasoncalacanis I’d better re-pimp that interview you did, though, ‘cos you said good stuff while in Oz. http://is.gd/mcQ

@Jasoncalacanis Our little discussion will come back to haunt us forever, I think! All Hail Teh Internetz!

@Jasoncalacanis No, you REPRESENT an Evil, that of the toxic start-up culture. You’re the cute, cuddly poster-boy for Valley Evil. ;)

@magia3e Yes, perky. The perky-Kiwi chiropractor always seems so cheerful and happy and bouncy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to magia3e

Anyone need a chiropractor? I can give you a discount voucher for my perky-Kiwi chiro in Potts Point. Initial appointment $30 not usual $80.

@Nickhodge I clcked well over 7000 milliscobles the other night. It was scary.

RT @wolfcat: “@stilgherrian and why pray tell are you watching home and away?” Because it is there.

via Twitter Web Client

I hate it when I see something on “Home & Away” that relates to my life. Erk.

via Twitter Web Client

Well, I could still go dinner & gonzo, or go home and hav an early night. Undecided.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus Yeah but if I’m carrying a MacBook Pro with HSUPA, why need a phone?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

Reserve battery time. Changing now.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus All that said, the Jeebusfone is a fine thing and will revolutionise the market, nit nt what I need/want.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@voirol Agreed the Nokia N96 is the beast for me. It appears I can get one on Vodafone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to voirol

@facibus No deisre for Jebusphone. No MMS, poor battery life, no tethering without jailbreaking. I carry MacMacboob Pro everywhere.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@DaveOMullane Phone well out of warranty. I reckon better off selling for parts, get a new N96 on plan.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrdaveoid

Maybe I should do a quick Gonzo Twitter from somewhere tonight.

@mpesce I still like the Rabbit-Proof Fence, or maybe the Maginot Line.

I’m guessing I’ll have to either dismantle my ole N80 in an attemt to fix, or go for a new N96. Tonight. Grrr.

@ragnarok1971 If I replace my blood, it shall not be with beer. Trust me on that.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m nevious of your Amsterdam. I’d toyed with moving there for various reasons, including some good companies to work for.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce I know you will have been across the key issues, and have sharp,curved teeth for grasping. All will be well.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Next stage on plan, now that my blood has been removed: 1700 beer.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Can I be sleelping on the studio floor in a dog suit, only to awake angrily and savage Conroy’s legs?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@limburger2001 The cost of migration can be quite significant, especially when vertically-integrated software in involved. Test! Train!

It is 1700. MY appointment is 1700. Why did that man go in there? Oh I am at peace and harmony with unfolding events. All is joy. And latex.

@felix42 I didn’t actually try tweeting My phone is geb0rken anyway, and without my glasses on I can’ read the screen.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to felix42

And now I’m waiting, with clean teeth, with a different bunch of people. Doctor time. Will he ask those… difficult questions?

via Twitter Web Client

I didn’t get to tweet, but I did relax and watch Sky News while the nice man put latex-covered appendages in my mouth. For 45 minutes.

via Twitter Web Client

He’s here. Hygiene time…

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge I have NO idea what I’m on. Well, I did know, but I’ve forgotten. It’s a secret dentist thing, I guess.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

That little pill has improved the afternoon no end. A martini’d be nice around now. Alas, a tooth-polishing tool and suction ain’t the same.

Chatting about the Thai alphabet with the Cambodian-Australian nurse. Very cosmopolitan here now, some of the nurses are not gay men!

Oh, excuse me “/” drive, who asked you to say “100% full”? How did you even manage to do that?

Good. No-one dead. Just someone who can’t follow the instructions in my voicemail to open a job ticket so the guys deal with it.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerge. Almost 0800, which i good. There is a voicemail from a private number, which usually isn’t good.
