I was actually enjoying my secret location, with its twin blonde barmaids, until they turned up the soccer REALLY FUCKING LOUD. Cunts.

I must say, Uzbekistan’s national anthem pisses all over Australia’s. (I can get pictures of that too, if you want, @alpharia.)

via Twitter Web Client

@alpharia But, twin barmaids or no, AM I a journalist? I’ve never considered myself one. I write words for money, but… difficult question.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alpharia

I’ve just realised that these twin petite blonde barmaids would be someone’s idea of the perfect fantasy. (Hi, @dizzystuff!)

RT @renailemay: You can send me photos of whatever you want, I’m a journalist, you can trust me! [Also, porcine aviation.]

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay Whether I’m “dirty” or not is another question. Shall I email you some photos?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@renailemay A MacBook Pro for most things, yes. Plus a Linux server in a data centre, a Windows VM & real machine not turned on in 3 months.

@renailemay “What is people’s favourite Linux app?” Which is the one that does the anonymous pr0n downloads? That one.

@JonoH [smirks] You won’t get me defending Prince Alfred College. The psychological scars are still with me. Yes, infested with squatocracy.

@JonoH is such a bloke. In a metrosexual private school oh that’s a lovely vase kind of way.

@renailemay Ta, your report re Vodafone and Hutchison/3 http://bit.ly/Q2ICL makes more sense than the bland thing I linked to before.

@rbuerckner Perhaps CBR is out, yes. Wikipedia says SYD is at the southern end of Sphecotheres viridis’ range. http://bit.ly/bx7A

@rbuerckner A confident fig bird is one of these http://bit.ly/bx7A who’s feeling… confident. And she was. She was also eating a fig.

Dodging rainclouds, accompanied by currawongs, lorrikeets, Brazilian-made airliners and a confident fig bird.

@thetowncrier We’ll have to agree to disagree. I think people should be fooled more often. Valuable lesson in skepticism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thetowncrier

@thetowncrier You seem to equate April Fools with less-good media. But the best were ABC and BBC. I did some at the ABC too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidFeng

Crikey story filed! Gosh, that’s a tad late. @GreenJ, how can I make it up to you?

via Twitter Web Client

Shoosh! I’ve got the narrative sorted now. Piss off and do something else while I’m concentrating.

@jg_rat @kcarruthers Do you really want me writing about Senator Conroy while pantsless? About Bernadette McMenamin?

@deconstructo Yes, that “online predators” data is interesting. A shame that the government wants to perpetuate the paranoia.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deconstructo

@martinlau I agree that brevity is important. But some things ARE complex and recipients do need to make an effort for those, at least.

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est dans l’autre sens. Je vais nourrir les animaux, à des membres de PETA, avec un entonnoir et d’un manche à balai.

The robots hovered. The young man smiled.

via Twitter Web Client

One robot had two trailing spikes, like a stingray’s barbs. The other had three . The barbs were square in cross-section, khaki in colour.

via Twitter Web Client

In my dream, there was a very handsome young man called Trussle who had two flying robots, each with one red camera-eye, like HAL.

@wolfcat I was never into The Church (the band, or the institution for that matter). I watched the video with no sound.

@exocetau Ah! Well, I’ll consult with @JonoH about the extent of the Big T’s tech seeding program’s generosity. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to exocetau

@exocetau Checking the specs, the Ericsson W25 has a “backup battery” accessory. Must discover if that’s included or extra.

@middleclassgirl Please does not be telling me about the size or capacity of your box kthxbai. [You did that deliberately, I know.]

@wolfcat Oh bah! It’s a great video and I’ll pimp it more tomorrow. I have NO idea why people pay attention to me.
