Droning languidly-depressing ballads begin. I’ve had enough misery and heartache in my life without listening to yours, woman. Home time.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: A glorious vision: The Veronicas doing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with totally inappropriate video. FULL OF WIN!

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe the 8-bit Nirvana cover needs a Mac speech synthesiser vocal line added?

The urge to stay for the roast is gone. The “live entertainment” has begun, destroying my peaceful look-out-the-window pondering.

Nirvana (kinda): “Smells Like Teen Spirit (8-Bit Remix)”, which I consider to be überawesome. http://tr.im/jJs9

Noticing the quality of the Sunday lamb roast, there’s a certain temptation to stay and savour its virtues. Ditto the gu… um, hang on.

@totalomnivore Too late to do the no-devices wander. But the purpose was to do some writing, and I need devices for that, to do the rese …

So that I’m not inside ALL day, I’m about to stroll to The Afternoon Office™ for a quiet beer, maybe write a little, and then stroll back.

@SnarkyPlatypus “Purge, eat, purge, repeat” is probably not a successful life strategy. In fact, I’m sure it’s been evaluated already.

@ApostrophePong It is not the time for another dead animal. We have done nothing all day, and are already full of dead animals from earlier.

@willhughes Actually, I think the moving focus and POV perfectly reflects the chaos of a party where everyone’s talking. Well done.

On second thoughts, maybe that video has rather too much of me. And certainly too much of my tongue. http://tr.im/jJcx

Hah! “What is wrong with Strawberry Amyl Nitrate?” [video] http://tr.im/jJaX I still think i’s a reasonable question, @willhughes!

All the ransoms paid to Somali pirates amount to roughly 0.002% of the bailout paid to AIG. http://tr.im/jJ0M

@HappySinger I think “groups” should be kept out of the Twitter API. Separate the core message switching from display, IMHO.

Stephen Colbert: “A Middle Eastern country is an ‘ally’ in the time between when we give them weapons and when they start using them.”

Dear Many New Followers, I have been overwhelmed with you, but I do see all @replies even though the Twitterriver flows fast.

@ApostrophePong has just declared it “Walrus Time” and I have no idea why.

@mpesce Sorry I didn’t make it to Rooftop @stub, it sounds like it would have been fun!

@dizzystuff I’m sorry, I don’t understand French. You’ll have to speak louder. (And I’m glad I didn’t understand what you just said.)

@SnarkyPlatypus Nous avons encore beaucoup de porcs et de poulets. Ils doivent être consommés.

@kirkbroadhurst I know Steve Reich’s “Music for 12 Musicians”, but the Cale/Riley “Church of Anthrax” is new, thanks. I shall explore!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai discuté les seins de Virginia Triol avec @courtney_gibson. Les plus rafraîchissant! Et vous?

@courtney_gibson Here is the reference. It was BEFORE 0700 on 26 November. Check the tape. ;) http://tr.im/jIB3

@courtney_gibson How can I respond without mentioning poo again? Anyway, Virginia Trioli talked about saggy breasts at 0700! Blame her!

@dr_nic “Smartdrugs” was indeed a 90s buzzword, maybe even late 80s. And yet they return.

@mediahunter Panic about ‘flu isn’t helped by everyone saying “I’ve got the ‘flu” when they have the Common Cold or some other random virus.

@thetowncrier Alas, I can’t watch Dave Letterman without constantly being reminded that he’s just a lame copy of Steve Vizard.

Sending, storing and sorting spam consumes 33 billion kWh per year. http://tr.im/jIp4

via Twitter Web Client

@thetowncrier Indeed, Mr Letterman is a loveable crank. He seems to be a little late to the fold in ridiculing Twitter though, no?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thetowncrier

I believe it might be time to listen to some of Mr Fripp and Mr Eno’s “The Heavenly Music Corporation”. http://tr.im/jInc

@Warlach @maxcelcat You are all being too literal and are no fun at all. And I do not weight 4000 tons. Not quite.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@Warlach Oh dear. “Dr Stil’s A Brief History of Social Networking” would start like in the early 1980s with dial-up BBSs and Telecom Viatel!

@courtney_gibson Later today I’ll post a side-by-side comparison of me and Ja’mie King, and you will regret your words Ms Gibson! ;)

@thomasrdotorg No, I have not seen “Hot Chicks with Douches”. I SERIOUSLY hope that’s meant figuratively.

@JakesWord I do look a bit like a seagull, yes. I may have to change to a sheep or a goat again though. Variety etc.

I suppose I should acknowledge all the @replies I just got but my brain is overloaded about the Ja’mie King thing. Sod you, @SnarkyPlatypus!

Aptly-named new website: “Look at this fucking hipster” http://tr.im/jJKW

@SnarkyPlatypus OK, you’ll have to explain to me how @bengrubb eating links to Duran Duran. Preferably with the dance moves.

Also, best photograph of me ever? Is this the new profile pic? http://tr.im/jJJA Thank you, @funkycoda!
