RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Lemme use some deductive logic - giving E to my horse makes horseriding safer?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @middleclassgirl: Have you even dropped an E whilst horse riding? It’s FANTASTIC!

via Twitter Web Client

UK’s top drug adviser says ecstasy no more dangerous than horse riding. http://is.gd/iLE7 [Yes, a scientist can do the maths.]

RT @cowspanker: Victoria, Australia bush fires: 25 dead, toll likely to pass 40. We’ve remade http://news.com.au … with full coverage.

@firstdogonmoon I’m sorry? Are you disagreeing with @SnarkyPlatyus’ observation? http://is.gd/iLBP Surely not!

@SnarkyPlatypus La glaire ne vient pas tellement de Julie Andrews, ni même Amanda Vanstone, mais Les Venonicas! Il répand!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Le monde est plein de fumée et de la merde et de mucus et une étrange parade d’insectes. Ils doivent tous mourir.

Emerges. Aches. Creaks. Blurs.

Home. Off-grid. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

I’ll resist describing what I see on the way home. Some of you have eaten.

via Twitter Web Client

Work is done. And now I wend my way home, thru shoals of clueless folk and the smelly. It’d a good thing I have a book.

via Twitter Web Client

Back to the grind. Only a few tasks left, and they’re straightforward.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl A long day? Maybe. It’s typical for a migration. It has to happen outside business hours, has to be completed on schedule.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

Work goes rather nicely. Gelati & beer break (!) now, then back to set up the WLAN and a printer.

via Twitter Web Client

Work plods along OK. Network migrations always include so many blocks of time just waiting for data to copy.

@liedra Well if water becomes scarce, and it’s traded, the price goes up. Good for those who “own” water. Bad for poor wanting to drink.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to liedra

@liedra And soon your drinking water will be a traded commodity too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to liedra

@liedra Electricity is a trading market. The price is whatever the grid companies are willing to pay the generators. http://is.gd/hBo7

via Twitter Web Client in reply to liedra

RT @samotage: And the price of power shot to $8000 30 mins before our temperature hit 46C. [Normally about $30 per unit.]

@babycakesjase There is a certain inevitability about the subject coming back to fisting. Every weekend. I don’t know why.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to babycakesjase

@websinthe Why do I have to look it up? Don’t your internets have a Google or something?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

Ah, gotta love working in an office where the word “fistula” is a regular part of the proceedings.

via Twitter Web Client

Noting once more than the difference between a professional and an amateur is the quality (or even presence!) of documentation.

via Twitter Web Client

Now before I swear at someone, let me say that I’m now at the client’s office, setting up for the day’s work. No schnitzels. No attention.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Pls don’t use the word “urophallic” before midday kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

FFS! I AM NOT EATING A GODDAM SCHNITZEL!

via Twitter Web Client

@Pollytics The tabloid media just attract rage-filled people full stop. Talkback radio too. It’s weird.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

It’s good to see NEWS.com.au has commenters at roughly the YouTube level of political analysis. http://is.gd/iGK3

via Twitter Web Client

Breakfast (well, brunch) commencing at Una’s on Victoria St, Darlinghurst. And no, I won’t post a photo. That’s lame.

via Twitter Web Client

I think if I’m working on Saturday then I’m obligated to make everyone else’s life miserable too.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @dellvink: Google image of Marysville before the fires http://tinyurl.com/dx9j74 It wasn’t the tiny place I was imagining. [Ditto.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @franksting: Floods, Fires, Economic Meltdown… all we need is Pestilence and then the 4 Horsemen will have come. [Yes, Peter Costello.]

via Twitter Web Client

ABC TV’s rough-cut video of what’s left of Marysville. http://is.gd/iLVq Hat-tip @andrewsayer.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus If NSW Labor is a zombie army http://is.gd/hLA5 then what does than make the Libs?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Costello! The voters hate him, too gutless to take leadership even with the numbers, and supports that loopy “Christian”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@CADbloke This is the problem. If the Liberals actually engaged with people instead of getting researchers to create stats about them… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CADbloke

Oh, should anyone care, there will be a “Stilgherrian Live” this coming Thursday night. Somehow.

via Twitter Web Client

@einspruch @SnarkyPlatypus Well @TurnbullMalcolm looks a goose whichever way this turns out. A delightful own goal.

via Twitter Web Client

Sun plan: A Saturday replacement: 1200 gym/lunch/snark with @SnarkyPlatypus; pottering & reading & writing thereafter.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Hence @firstdogonmoon’s cartoon about the Frog and the Scorpion. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein Americans will learn, like Australians did, that a new leader still has to operate existing clunky machinery of government.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@TurnbullMalcolm Rather than gauging opinion in leafy Centennial Park (SUVs and horses FFS!), try Penrith, Cronulla, Casula or Toongabbie.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @ApostrophePong: This track thttp://snipr.com/bhfre goes with this article. http://is.gd/iLE7

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. Note to Coalition: You LOST the 2007 election. You’re a disorganised rabble populated by loons and arselickers. STFU.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus ROFL! @TurnbullMalcolm “ready to talk on stimulus package” http://is.gd/iLOK I wondered when his brain would start working.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers Agreed. I think a very big pipe solves most problems. Just ask Michael Phelps.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers We’re not surprised that it can be snowing in Stockholm while sunny in Majorca. Are we really so dumb about Australia?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers Why are a surprised that there can be different weather 3000km apart? This is a BIG country!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

And a year ago, Wales’ police chief continued call for legalisation of drugs. http://is.gd/iLJM Half of reported crime feeds a drug habit.

RT @stephendann: “Ecstasy ‘no worse than horse riding’” maybe true, but most bouncers get really narky about bringing the horse in the club.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @lelak: This is where pegasi come from. [We’re speaking English, so it’s “pegasuses”, but yes it is true.]
