@SnarkyPlatypus true. It does seem that most Grass Mud Horse imagery is based on alpacas. But what would I know?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@R_Chirgwin I think you must play the “Song of the Grass Mud Horse” on this coming week’s “A Series of Tubes”. ;)

@SnarkyPlatypus Is this a more distinct Grass Mud Horse avatar?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus You’re right, there’s a moar betteror photo of Grass Mud Horse somewhere. Stand by.

Do I make a lovely Grass Mud Horse?

OK, heads down while I write. Unless it relates to what I’m writing. But that’s a SEKRIT. It’s all SEKRITS.

Mon plan: Write for Crikey; lunch somewhere nearby; afternoon packed with proposals & project management; evening not quite clear.

Fuck. How did it get to be 0920 already?

@SnarkyPlatypus C’est un “non” pour la gym ce soir, mais le dîner peut-être?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce Alas, while going back to bed would be good in theory, I have many, many problems to resolve today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mon pouce est très douloureux. Merde. Et Toi?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I can still hear the corellas and currawongs and a honeyeater doing their morning squawks, though, so someone’s having a good day.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I’ve woken late, my slashed thumb hurts, have far too much to do and I feel shit. Is that a good start?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@DavidFeng Thaknk you. After hearing the “Song of the Cao-Ni-Ma” I just HAD to adopt him as my avatar! http://is.gd/neBm

Emerges. This is not a good start.

@ApostrophePong just asked me, “Where are dolphins’ nipples?” It’s not so much the answer that worries me, but why he wants to know.

@ApostrophePong @facibus Have you noticed that pepperoni already comes in its own condom? WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@xiaoyi Yes, I think this Grass Mud Horse avatar was the most recognisable at small sizes. :)

RT @karentweet: Ahhhhhh you’re a llama!! http://twurl.cc/nju [I’m not, but thank you. My head just assploded.]

@yeebok I should mention that I’ve never watched Biggest Loser. I watch very, very little TV.

RT @BernardKeane: @stilgherrian New blood! FEAST on his FLESH!!!!! [Not the first in Canberra I suspected of vampirism. Tthere you go.]

“Bligh to inject new blood into cabinet” says NineMSN. Is that legal? http://is.gd/oojE

It hurts too much unless I type one-handed.

RT @rgillettpr: Is it wrong to eat cheese Twisties while watching biggest loser? [No. Compulsory, witty and ironic.]

RT @shealo: Does being feminine deem one neither lively or interesting? [I’ve just sliced my hand open. My answer may offend.]

Thank you, @ApostrophePong, for helping me bandage my left thumb. Slicing pepperoni, not my finger, was the original aim. Enough blood? Yes.

via Twitter Web Client

@rbuerckner THERE IS NOTHING FEMININE ABOUT MY AVATAR! IT IS GRASS MUD HORSE, AND HE IS LIVELY AND INTELLIGENT!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@facibus Yep, with some already saying this is a vote-changer for them, that’s a message which can be worked with.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus And the bottom line is that folks in “Howard’s battlers” marginal seats don’t give a stuff what funny-dressed weirdos think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus Precisely. Politicians do not change their minds unless it affects their electoral prospects. Everything flows from that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus The aim isn’t “to provide room for people” or have a fun social day. The aim is policy change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus If the image on Saturday night TV is “a bunch of weirdos want to watch pr0n and dress funny”, it won’t change Sen Fielding’s mind.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus “Do we want to suck up to the great unwashed?” Well, what is wanted is a change of policy. Work backwards from there.

Wandering in search of whatever it is that we need to fill that empty space in the refrigerator where the food is meant to go.

@facibus I don’t know how to sell except to have an alternative plan that makes sense and comes from normal-looking people.

@facibus Ah yes, I saw the pic of Harajuku Girls at the rally. http://is.gd/oo60 Does it help the political message though? ;)

@dkhall44 My seagull avatar may return. Or I may commission @firstdogonmon to refine it. Or maybe not. Only Allah knows the future.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dkhall44

@facibus Hmmm… Alas I’ve never been a fan of “humour” which references mass-market sci-fi TV programs. There. I’ve said it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@BiteTheDust Yes, I’ve just been looking at those amazing photos of a dust storm. http://bit.ly/SxfGi Truly, it is not Enmore.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@BiteTheDust I’m not sure why I am doing it. I’m never sure why I do anything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@seancarmody No, it is not at all witty to say “resistance is futile” to someone whose surname is Borg. It is obvious and lame.

via Twitter Web Client

@Venisejb Oh my new avatar is a Grass Mud Horse (Cao Ni Ma). Song at http://is.gd/neBm with background at http://is.gd/omSm … enjoy!

@BrynAU I admire your arithmetical skills. May I subscribe to your newsletter? ;)

@tardis_42 Ta for the correction re Whirlpool and the link takedown notice. It was indeed re Abortion TV not Wikileaks. I mis-spoke. ;)

This is a better Grass Mud Horse avatar, I think.
