@franksting Senator Cnutroy has won three times already. Maybe we need to move on? Or vote him “Cnut for Life”?

@robcorr I don’t suppose you have linkage to The Simpsons judgement?

@oliyoung Mr 5% Rudd has been nominated by several people, I think he’s bound to be a finalist.

Leaving for a 1600 appointment in Darlinghurst I nearly forgot about. Stanmore station / Town Hall station / Hyde Park / Oxford St ahoy.

@mpesce When you finally write your goddam book, I am going to light a candle and read it backwards so the universe implodes. Good riddance.

Just started raining in Enmore. I should’ve listened to the lorrikeets, they told me 10 mins ago the rain was imminent. As they always do.

@mpesce The meds stopped working? Your meds or my meds? Or are they the same meds?

@mpesce I believe the word you’re looking for is “monomaniac”.

@comedy_nerd I love your observation that “some pneumatic clotheshorses read autocues and press delete keys adequately”. Priceless.

@firstdogonmoon “Starring Gwyneth Paltrow as Phillip Adams”? WFT? Your cartoons are just weird. http://is.gd/cfDB

@alexschlotzer When I worked at the ABC was a “producer”. The news dept insisted I was NOT a “journalist”. I still don’t like the word.

Yes, “Stilgherrian Live” tonight. Nominations are now open for “Cnut of the Week”. http://is.gd/cfzC

@Skigod Oh next year “Stilgherrian Live” will become re-focussed, with audience build and yes, someone somehow paying for it.

@marclehmann Most of the first half of “Stilgherrian Live” consists of listing the four nominees for “Cnut of the Week”, with diversions.

Peut-être que tout le monde devrait gérer leurs tweets par le biais de Google Translate aujourd’hui. Choisissez votre langue à bon escient.

@SnarkyPlatypus French colloquialisms are going to get you in trouble there, if you do a back-translate on Google. Nice image though. ;)

@marclehmann It must be strange watching a rambling late-night program in the clear light of a Sydney summer’s day.

@rbbrown @firstdogonmoon No, sucking on a goat is a quite different experience. @SnarkyPlatypus can explain further.

@rbbrown Does cow milk and cheese have a “cow” flavour? Steak in your coffee?

I’ve just seen a sign for primary school uniforms for rale. Do you think I’d…? No, maybe not.

via Twitter Web Client

I dream of the day I see a newspaper headline which isn’t a lamely obvious pun. Get a fucking life, subs!

via Twitter Web Client

Noting that the edition of MX being read by the commuterprole in front of me has news which was on the net a week ago. Well done, Rupert.

Loose in the city, looking for dinner before heading home to prep for “Stilgherrian Live”.

I have been mis-spelling “lorikeet” all day. My head is hung in shame.

@simontsmall You can learn a LOT of new words by watching “Stilgherrian Live”. ;) BTW, it’s on tonight at 9.30pm Sydney time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to simontsmall

@zzap No, they’re not police. They’re inspectors from the Food Authority, fighting the global (well, NSW) War on Gastro.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@zzap I’m currently in the Crown Hotel on Goulburn St, Sydney. No lorrikeets within earshot, only (I suspect) off-duty federal police.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@SnarkyPlatypus @zzap I’ve found that rainbow lorrikeets, if you know their calls, can warn of rain approx 10 mins before the drops fall.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Heh! My website is the Google #1 search result for “Bernadette McMenamin”. That’ll thrill her.

@liubinskas I may well be interested in your coworking space in Darlinghurst. http://is.gd/chAe I will investigate further.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to liubinskas

@HappySinger Indeed ianal tl;dr also. But yes, the judge has analysed what the law actually says. It bans the “representation” of a person.
