OK, it wasn’t Virgin Mobile’s fault. Probably. It was a 3G packet data failure. In Sydney CBD. You know what that calls for? Yes.

Thamk you, Virgin Mobile, for sending me a configuration message which broke tethering. Looking for Wi-Fi now.

via Cloudhopper

Your replies are confusing me. I’m heading tn the CBD now. Mindless retail will help.

You don’t think that pink, silver and lavender tie threatens your masculinity?

If I’m paying $20 for a plate of noodles I’d expect a hand-job to be included.

via Cloudhopper

Ah, Blues Point! A whole new world, where they reckon Pad Thai priced $19 is a “lunchtime special”! It’s just fucking noodles, you wankers.

@ikostar I’m no epidemiologist, but anything under a couple thousand cases is statistically meaningless for tracking mortality. :)

Central station. Glorious day, Crossing Sydney Harbour will be magnificent. It’s a shame the train windows are like peering through a be …

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown station / North Sydney station / 1100 .

@jmacmullin And we won’t know mortality rates for weeks yet, ‘cos that’s how long it can take to die of the ‘flu and report it.

@baethan Are ALL “brown-nosing incidents” unfortunate, or NONE of them? Depends on the nose, I suppose.

@jdub I don’t seem to have The Power To Editâ„¢. Must I perform difficult and unmentionable acts upon @GreenJ?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub It’s pure self-interest: correctly-tagged stories turn up as “related stories” more often and make me look cleverer. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@rmccue I currently only do odd bits for Crikey, and @mpesce was mainly just in that video. But @firstdogonmoon is “special”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rmccue

@wolfcat No, the word “loose” goes with my previous Twitterthread. You mean “lose” here. I hope.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@jdub Currently only 4 are tagged “internet-filtering” http://tr.im/kbYD but I’ve done many more http://tr.im/kbYQ I’m such a prima donna.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub Well, yes. I log in. I see WordPress. “Oh, I’ve built these before.” :P Now, can I re-tag my old stories? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

I probably shouldn’t have been chuffing the cockroach spray.

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news I’m pleased that my Crikey Blogs login lets me log into the new website to file stories. Less chance of @GreenJ “forgetting”.

@hortovanyi Am I trying to find some new drugs? Um, not right now, no thank you. Not if they cause nosebleeds. Or constipation.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

Did I mention that I’m asking these medical questions on behalf of a friend?

via Twitter Web Client

“Constipation can be a cause of nosebleeds, so you may need a stool softener to prevent straining.” http://tr.im/kbOm

via Twitter Web Client

@AmosKeeto Fair point. I am seriously not in the mood for a stroke or heart attack right now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AmosKeeto

@sylviadiscount @stephenconroy @Maab @Lilylauren @GeordieGuy OK, I was SO not expecting an answer to that. I should be more careful.

via Twitter Web Client

Can constipation cause a nosebleed?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh look! Crikey haves an brand new website on teh intertubes! http://tr.im/kbD3

@neerav Another vote for Kenya? I’d never have guessed. ;) All votes and comments ARE being noted, even if I don’t reply.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

RT @afficionados_hh: Still reckon reckon should be the Lost island. Like to see you get back from there! [Ha!]

via Twitter Web Client

@curious_scribe Agreed, DRC or Somalia would be “interesting” too, but I do not choose the list.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to curious_scribe

@thegrenville Indeed. I can’t reveal the logic of yet, but told today it’s Kenya, Sierra Leone or Tanzania. I don’t choose.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thegrenville

@ikostar I haven’t seen “The Trap”, but I have seen “The Power of Nightmares” by the same director. It’s free now, too! http://tr.im/kbyf

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ikostar

@gedulous Do I want to be safe? Does that fit with a ? I’m not sure that it does! Is that wrong?

@stinginthetail Hmmm… Kenya may have beaches, but I don’t think beaches rate as a .

RT @iDarryl: Landloacked Pirates? http://tinyurl.com/34mmt8 [Oh, VERY well played, Sir!]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Wyane: Kenya 58,339; Tanzania 6,279; Sierra Leone 3,046… Google News hits. easy pick, Sierra Leone [Interesting logic!]

via Twitter Web Client

Off to Potts Point for chiropractor. Battery low. TGIF.

via Cloudhopper

So… Where should I be dropped? Kenya, Sierra Leone or Tanzania? Please tag your replies

via Twitter Web Client

I don’t know which country, only that it’s one of Kenya, Sierra Leone or Tanzania. I get briefed on Tuesday.

via Twitter Web Client

I should explain a bit. I will be dropped in one of those countries for a week to report back, amongst other things.

via Twitter Web Client

@Opheli8 I think you mean Somali pirate ships, not Sudanese. Sudan is landlocked. But neither are on the list.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Opheli8

RT @Alex_Manchester: No Somalia on that list? You wimp. [Possibly. But the other three are such peaceful resort towns too.]

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ Um, yes, it appears I DO need to talk to you about SEKRITS!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, you heard what the lady said. Where should I be dropped? Kenya, Sierra Leone or Tanzania? Please tag your replies and RT.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, it looks like my SEKRIT will not be very SEKRIT much longer either!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @FiBendall: will possibly be: Kenya; Sierra Leone; Tanzania. You will be briefed on Tues. Pls Vote on Target Drop .

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ I will read @firstdogonmoon’s funny picture page and then look at your SEKRIT thing then. Will that make you happier?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Reading Robert Manne is cheaper than rohypnol and thrice as effective. Does anyone want to have sex with me now?

via Twitter Web Client

@GreenJ I’m only just now catching up on reading the last 3 days of that thing on the Internet, what’s it called? “Bindy” or something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ Um, no, I didn’t look at that SEKRIT site yet, I will do so shortly. I have to talk to you about my SEKRIT project tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@kcarruthers I’ve been really tired this afternoon, so I’d like to thank you for providing suitable replacement snark. Much appreciated.

@ikostar “Fast leaners with short memories”? Yes. Hence my “Hallucinating Goldfish” meme. http://tr.im/kb2C [Long and weird.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ikostar

@eskimo_sparky I’m not sure that “famous” is the right word to describe it. Maybe someone else has a better word.

RT @DavidFeng: The United States of ? Why not? http://tinyurl.com/c9p889 [And most pretty it is, too.]

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Oh nothing particularly dressy needed, though I will be on a conference panel soon. Just thinking ahead for when I’m truly famous.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@jeamland AFAIK I do not own a dress. A sarong, yes, but that’s different. It’s made of silk, for starters.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@mrsnickhodge On an only vaguely-related matter, I don’t think I even OWN a tie. I don’t have a suit. Nor any dress shoes. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrsnickhodge

@ikostar I think we’re kinda in agreement about one thing, though: Swine Flu could still be ANYWHERE between a minor outbreak and 1918.

@SeandBlogonaut I do like the new Crikey layout, yes. It provides a much more flexible framework, both under the hood and at the surface.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SeandBlogonaut

RT @FiBendall: Q given 4 other poss locations for - but think we have top 1 from votes! Get the guy a metal helmet! LOL

@tilama I’ve conducted a thorough search of my nasal cavities. And all others. No signs of asylum seekers or other aliens.

@rmccue Well, even the few stories with “author” set to me don’t have an edit button. Unless there’s another me in there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rmccue

@jdub On the whole, I would rather be a contributor than an editor. I means I can send you stuff from without worries.
