@NewtonMark Sorry, Sir, I cannot engage in recursive analysis of poor writing in my tweets about poor writing. Not yet, anyway.

@jpoh Yes, poor grammar should be punished severely. He says, typing extremely carefully.

@jpoh Not so much a big night as a long night, if that makes sense? Lack of sleep FTL.

@middleclassgirl @SnarkyPlatypus @mpesce @ApostrophePong Thanks, all for a pleasant evening… for some value of “pleasant”.

via Twitter Web Client

It to too early to complain about inconsistent capitalisation and poor punctuation? I mean, standards should be maintained.

via Twitter Web Client

@jpoh Oh God! Careful where you poke, Sir! It’s all a bit fragile.

Girl, if you sit on at the end of the bar, on that stool, with your legs crossed that way, the word IS hooker.

I’ve just been told I’m a bit more Paula Abdul. Than what, I’m not sure.

OTOH, if this was a proper Burroughs novel, I’d have a gun. And I’d be using it right now, I swear.

Isn’t there a law about singing “My Way” before midnight?

I believe I’ve stepped into a William S Burroughs novel. Again.

Off-grid for the evening.

@posty Yes, my writing has naturally evolved into the intersection of “internet” and “politics”. I have found my niche. well, a niche.

@jordanbrock Someone was bidding A$6.50 a click-through on “heath ledger dead” around 8 hours after he died. http://is.gd/1eHE

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jordanbrock

Weird. I just had two people say I’m not a journalist because I “write honestly” and I’m “a real person”.

via Twitter Web Client

@jordanbrock Murdoch news outlets quite often buy search advertising. They pay good money for it, too.

Putting my head down to concentrate on some client work. My plan may have sounded easy this morning, but the devil’s in the detail.

@mpesce The ABC is going to the dogs. Have you SEEN some of the losers they let on air these days?

@SnarkyPlatypus As you suggesting… cocktails? Or that time IS an illusion? Time flies like an arrow, as the AI researchers say.

@plasmaegg Sen Ludlam popped out of the Senate chamber to speak for 5 mins. He sounded relaxed and intelligent. You’ll hear soon enough.

Just recorded a brief phone interview with Senator Scott Ludlam (The Greens), which will emerge later today, somehow.
