@jodiem There is no Christmas special from The Panel this year. Channel TEN is sulking ‘cos they lost “Thank God You’re Here” to Channel 7.

I won’t be able to respond to everyone’s 3-word suggestions, but I’m working the key themes into my script. All will be revealed 25/12.

What’s good about the 3-keyword sets for my Christmas Message which are coming in is that theyre also prompting excellent song choices.

Le Bake Cafe, Enmore Rd, where the lad behind the counter has become completely confused by our rather simple order.

Christmas Message Challenge: Can everyone please send me three keywords which sum up 2008, in whatever field? Easier than writing it myself.

@mpesce Compared with Elizabeth II, I have both more elvish bits and moar evilish bits. Lots more. (Can’t do this joke in Thailand.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce My Christmas Message will be moar betterer than Elizabeth II’s because it will speak The Truth and have evilish bits.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@leadegroot Elizabeth II is a renowned gadget freak. Pinched Prince Harry’s Wii to play bowling all last Christmas Day. Loves her cameras.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leadegroot

@leadegroot Yes, Elizabeth II did the first TV Christmas Message in 1957, the first YouTube in 2007 at The Royal Channel. http://is.gd/cJQ8

From “Family Guy”, to Rudolph the Reindeer: “We’ve finally worked out what makes your nose red.” “Is it pixie dust? Or leprechaun tail?”

@WarWraith Nah I would never try to take on Elizabeth II in TV programming.

@danupoyner I think you’ll find that Guy Rundle’s comments were, in part, what we whitefolk call a “joke”. http://is.gd/cJA

Sun plan: Brunch on Enmore Rd with @ApostrophePong soon; write & plan Christmas Message; more writing, reading and relaxing.

@HappySinger Don’t worry too much. Last night’s liveblog http://is.gd/cMbk contains some fictional beliefs and opinions. ;)

@Jon_Seymour Yes, I’ve noticed you’re busy with ! I’ve got a thousand other priorities atm, 3 working days to clear to-do lists.

Emerges. Sleep patterns FTL. Solstice n’all, I guess.Well, last night was.

Should I kill someone or go to bed? It’s Sunday night, I think I’ll go to bed. Goodnight. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

I was very well behaved earlier, I didn’t kill anyone. I didn’t even kick anyone.

@misswired No if I wanted you to shut up I would use the subtle signal: “Shut up!”

@Jon_Seymour Of course “epidemic” is the tabloid journalistic term for “we have no valid statistics whatsoever”.

@Dianne_ None of my tweets are funny. Not a single one.

OK, you asked for it! “Gonzo Liveblog 2: Last Sunday before Christmas” starts at 6.30pm Sydney time (15 mins) at http://is.gd/cMbk

Hmmm… I’ve just gotten a sudden burst of Twitterfollowers, what’s that all about?

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Hah! I see your trap! You can’t catch a train to the SCG, only the MCG! You can’t fool me!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@SilkCharm All news is gossip, and all gossip is news. Unless it involves sex toys, in which case it’s a lie.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@mpesce No guilt: I’m not a Catholic. I was brought up on English Protestantism, which is a religion based on cricket and steam trains.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I don’t know that I can organise all that by sunset.

@mpesce I believe in controlled demolition too. After all, I WAS watching “Fail-Safe” again the other day. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@rantalot No, 6.6GB of photos for a whole year isn’t much. @ApostrophePong shoots that much in a day’s shoot.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rantalot

@SilkCharm You’re forgetting the difference between “news” and “gossip”. One of them starts with an “n”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

Toying with doing a liveblog / Gonzo Twitter from somewhere as evening approaches. Or should I do it another time when I can promote it?

@zzap If a domain name’s registration’s expired, you probably can’t transfer it. Most registries prohibit that to prevent sniping.

@mpesce The world would be a much better place if more people’s heads exploded. Just sayin’.

Our film “The Shave”, now that I see it again, is a very disturbing 3.5 minutes. http://is.gd/8DMJ @ApostrophePong is a great editor though.

@ApostrophePong Yes, the Aurora Hotel has a convenient power point on a pillar in the middle of the sports bar. Twitter rocks!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Pop up the road to the Aurora Hotel on Elizabeth St, I think their Wi-Fi deal is better. C Bar has fucked it up. Fuck ‘em.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

New blog post: “Most popular posts of 2008” http://is.gd/cLnR It’s depressing. No-one cares about my quality writing.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod You could reverse that description of 2008 to “greed overtakes fear”, too, since the War on Abstract Nouns is over? (Isn’t it?)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@ApostrophePong @middleclassgirl Everything you say or even think gets worked into the script. ;)

Ah it’s OK, the publican has apologised for the apparent drought.

Could someone please phone Kelly’s On King on Sydney 9565 2288 and ask the publican why my ale hasn’t been served yet?

@dekrazee1 @mpesce Yes, I know that I’ll be dunked in honey before the end too. It is my destiny.

@JonoH We’re doing “His Benevolence Stilgherrian’s Christmas Message” to kick off some special Xmas Day programming. http://is.gd/cCAT

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@jodiem But no, I suspect it’ll be more like 4pm onwards, with extended Chsirtmas programming. Discussion at http://is.gd/cCAT

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

Mon plan (started 0500, oh well): desk until 1200; errands to King St; project planning somewhere comfy; possibly a drink later, @JonoH?

@GeordieGuy I don’t think we’ll have the message edited by Christmas Eve, what with a hectic week for me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GordyPls

@JonoH I’m not sure of my movements yet today. I’ll decide that after the post office run, which happens right now.

Final asking: When should we broadcast “His Benevolence Stilgherrian’s Christmas Message”? http://is.gd/cCAT

@facibus But “need” and “want” are two different words, Sir! Especially when it comes to burnings.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@davemonkey Actually there’s people other than Senator Conroy I’d burn in effigy today. I may list them later.

@einspruch You’re quite right. The Solstice was only a few hours ago, Monday Australian time. http://is.gd/8Af4 Gotta love a wobbly planet.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

I’m a bit diappointed that I completely missed the Solstice until it was too late. Maybe I need to burn something (or somebody) today.
