@Debichan The true challenge for parents is preparing their kids for the world THEY’LL grow up in, not trying to return to the past.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Debichan

@Debichan Oh the challenges of raising kids in a world which is very different from the one their parents knew must be immense… but…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Debichan

@deliriousgirl LOL! If you feel unable to comment on my website, spread the word elsewhere… to folks who think technical censorship works.

@the_roysta Twitter only makes sense 1. if you speak as well as listen, and 2. hit a critical mass, maybe 50 I people. My experience; YMMV.

@mhawkins1970 True, Wynyard station has no flushing, but air pressure from trains does cause most moisture/spray to be evenly distributed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mhawkins1970

@suziam Um, Wynyard IS in the CBD. What are you really thinking of? Where’s Pitt Town? Who are you? Are you my mother?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to noopkat

Crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge on a bright, sunny day. I prefer the rain, but this is acceptable. For tourists anyway.

via Twitter Web Client

Wynyard station. I continue to maintain that it’s just a giant urinal with railway tracks through it. Smell, sound and calibre of people.

@firstdogonmoon What’s wrong with @middleclassgirl? Oh I assume it’s just one of those women’s things [shrugs].

@SnarkyPlatypus I do think that the term “plaisirs faux-saphiques” has a pleasant sound, though. I will practice saying it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve just noticed the gender was wrong in some of the translations, too. Though gender-confusion was perhaps appropriate.
