@wolfcat Speaking of theme songs, we should record the new national anthem @SnarkyPlatypus and I wrote, “I Am So An Aussie” http://is.gd/mgk

@wolfcat @facibus I’m thinkinh of a “Stilgherrian Live on the Road” to Yass. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

Oh, OK, so we ARE having another Resch’s and watching “20 to 1”. Channel Nine FTW, apparently. I see a narrative emerging here…

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong No I do NOT want to watch “20 to 1: Biffs and Blunders” on Channel Nine. Maybe back to our own village instead?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

NSW CountryLink railway thingo, your website is useless. Searching “map” yields no results, but there IS a map, I just downloaded it.

RT @publicpolity: http://is.gd/gjjW We all saw it coming. Rudd’s economic stimulus causes a 10% spike in pokie revenue in Qld.

@fictillius If there is many alcomahols in your fridge then you need to bring it to the Granville Hotel. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@JonoH I should point out that we’ve been in Cabramatta and Glanville. Many Sydneysiders think they’re somewhere near Broken Hill. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Our expedition has been full of . Not having Coopers, even if only Pale, even if only in bottles, is a common crime here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

OK, so the Granville Hotel doesn’t have ANY ales either. But two schooners of Resch’s is $6.80.

People of Yennora, take down your Christmas decorations kthxbai.

Heading north in search of something drinkable. Railbus replacing train is airconditioned and has The Beatles playing.

@rbuerckner Mind you, the barmaid at the Mekong Club looked like she learnt her craft throwing GIs out of her Saigon strip club.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@rbuerckner I agree that no ale is heinous. But that security guy is WAY bigger and gnarlier than either of us. This is not our village.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

If you thought the selection of beers was poor at Panthers Mekong, that at the Cabramatta Inn is even worse. No ale at all, even in bottles.

via Twitter Web Client

Having a quiet beer at Panthers Mekong, Cabramatta. Classy.

via Twitter Web Client

An avocado and duriam shake? My head just assploded.

via Twitter Web Client

Arrived at Cabramatta.

CityRail info fail: Poster explaining trackwork covers map, doesn’t say WHERE to catch replacement buses. Granville. Pic & blog post later.

via Twitter Web Client

OH @ Strathfield station: “Have you been to Parramatta?” “No.” “Oh, you’d really like it. It’s a good place. There’s some good pubs.”

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Stanmore station / Cabramatta station / Vietnamese food / return journey or… where? With @ApostrophePong.

via Twitter Web Client

No takers for our journey to Cabramatta for pho? But the trains are so lovely on a Sunday! ;) And the pho is magnificent.

Breakfast tip: Cascade Cafe at Town Hall has a great location but extremely average food. Be warned. First and last time I’ll come here.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, do not upset or miscredit the @timoreilly. He is subtle and quick to anger. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Having breakfast at Cascade Cafe, Town Hall Arcade. can’t provide packet data. Typical. Next G loud and clear. Also typical.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Agree that Facebook seems to be more “people from my past”, Twitter my current collaborateurs. Rest of it unsure (yet).

@GeordieGuy Au contraire! Planning is the key to success! Deciding when to do that planning, allocating enough time, is vital.

I’ll be (intermittently) at ALIA Information Online 2009 in Sydney, which starts tomorrow. http://is.gd/fWAp Say hello if you’ll be there.

“Endorsed by doctors and Hollywood.” Oh, well that’s good.

Home and collapse time. It’s going to be a reasonably busy week, I gather. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@zhasper Well if someone had told us about the Vauxhaul Hotel in Granville at any time when we were there… hours ago… [sigh]

@ApostrophePong This whole goddam village is full of faggots!

RT @ApostrophePong: “ok something’s changed at the duke, playing big band and ABC1”? Yes, it’s the Big Poof behind the bar. Der.

You can never have too much lycra. Or too little.

Explaining to @ApostrophePong that in Slandr you can see your Direct Messages (“DMs”) by clicking on “Direct”. It’s tricky like that.

via Twitter Web Client

Is Twitter constipated again? Is anyone else?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @JonoH Yes, we are at The Duke. For the first time in two weeks it’s not David Bowie playing, but Nat King Cole.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Yes. Finally. Coopers Pale Ale. Cold and with flavour. And a salad is on the way.

@SnarkyPlatypus I wasn’t thinking of eating them but exporting them. $15k each x 1000 birds = $15M. Oh, and a jail term, but hey.

There’s something like 1000 lorikeets in these few trees at Strathfield. It’s LOUD. 1000 is no exaggeration. 300+ arrived in last 10 mins.

RT @thomasrdotorg: Just working out what goes best with a G+T. Discovered this: another G+T goes best. Eureka!! [I’ve always liked physics.]

@ApostrophePong and I will arrive at Newtown in about 22.7 minutes. We will be hungry. We seek advice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@nyflash Following ME? I’m not in NY. I’ve always thought “flash mobs” self-indulgent, pointless. Saying it’s now “postironic” is worse.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nyflash

Strathfield. 23 minutes until the next Inner West train. We get to listen to lorikeets and look at ugly people.

RT @crispynoodles: Not sure I’d want to become a brazillionaire - have to deal with a lot of cnuts.

Please substitute station names as appropriate until my route either makes sense or amuses someone.

On that note, I think it’s time to return to the village. Granville to Stanmore/Newtown via Stanmore. DetailsTBA. Mobile.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Is a “brazillionare” someone who makes a fortune from waxing?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

RT @middleclassgirl: @stilgherrian yes those in addition to urophilia and scatology. [Agreed, all good words to use.]

@WarWraith I know what repeat programs are, but it’s pretty basic to check it and re-edit any out-of-date bits.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

Is this is appropriate time to use the words “sling” and “strap-on”?

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Actually you’re right. Hyacinth Howard would LOVE Kevin Rudd as a BDSM toyboy!

@fictillius @SnarkyPlatypus If we’re talking politician wife-swaps then we MUST match … oh, I’m stuck now. Suggestions?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@SnarkyPlatypus Janette Howard as a second wife for Rudd? But isn’t it “first wife for power, second wife for sex”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@hopeinhell Nothing shocks me. Not even Channel Nine.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

Channel Nine FAIL! Just referred to “Hyacinth” Howard as “the current PM’s wife”. Gosh, only 14 months wrong. “Still NOT the One.” Losers.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong True. Watching “20 to 10” has reminded us of Premier Don Dunstan’s famous pink shorts! http://is.gd/gjt6
