RT @SnarkyPlatypus: You are our broken lighthouse, guiding us to the shore in the stormy seas. [“Away” from the shore, surely? Oh. I see.]

Someone just called me their “voice of reason”. I think their medication needs adjusting.

I see that dullard @kcarruthers has stolen my idea for flogging cheap WebForward@CeBIT conference tickets. http://tr.im/ktlY

Also today I discover the destination for , apparently. Will it be Kenya, Sierra Leone or Tanzania? They tease me so.

I’m liveblogging @newmatilda’s forum The Tangled Web (Internet censorship) http://tr.im/ktjv at http://tr.im/ktjF from 6pm AEST.

@firstdogonmoon Do one of your witty videos explaining wombat sex, with diagrams and sound effects! Call it “Liberal pre-selection”!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s Channel Nine. Their viewers wouldn’t know the difference between a Senator and a sea cucumber. Mix it up, I say.

@SnarkyPlatypus Your task today: Match the Opposition front bench (and backbenchers?) to crew of HMAS Hammersley! http://tr.im/kt7y

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus “Senator Patrol”! Coalition Senators crew a patrol boat, facing smugglers, boat people and plunging ratings. As they do now.

@BreakfastNews Rudd fails to deliver a key election promise and tackle a vital environmental problem. Here, have $900, don’t question me.

Il pleut en Enmore. Merveilleux.

@SnarkyPlatypus Can’t be bothered reading “The Australian”? Just masturbate. The political analysis is just as relevant, and it’s more fun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui. La Fusion est un phénomène mondial, réalisé dans de petites étapes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe we could swap Penny Wong for Penny Cook. Or Lisa McCune. Senator McCune. Yes, I like the sound of that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@firstdogonmoon This wombat is not dancing. I’m not sure what he IS doing. “Secret sex life of wombats” http://tr.im/kt0m

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@SnarkyPlatypus Huh? You want Senator Wong playing basketball? I’d pay to see that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@firstdogonmoon Or possibly musical chairs. Do wombats dance?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon An Emissions Trading Scheme is kinda like playing the shell game while the ship is sinking, or something.

@SnarkyPlatypus La comparaison a été positive, non pas que nous sommes tous les deux vieux pédés graisse. http://tr.im/ksY2

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai trouvé un article stupide sur Twitter. Cependant, un commentateur a comparé avec moi @stephenfry!

@maxmarkson You can stream live video from a phone using Qik, providing you download the app and have the bandwidth.

Small mammal overload. [exit]

@WoollyMittens Good question. Does Twitter count as “operating heavy machinery”? Let’s see. Can it dig a ditch?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

Waiting for the medication to work.

Maybe I need to open a thread for “Cnut of the Week” earlier to trigger discussion.

via Cloudhopper

@infoholic Yes, http://is.gd/wwnv is exactly the kind of stupidity that deserves “Cnut of the Week”. Make sure to nominate Thursday.

Want to go to WebForward@CeBIT http://tr.im/kpCW next week for $196-odd instead of $1400-odd? Read http://tr.im/kpCX

The day of bookkeeping and ATO paperwork ends. So, what ‘s been happening? (That’s a rhetorical question.)

@vardenrhode Not “The Prisoner”. Room 101 is from “Nineteen Eighty-Four”. http://tr.im/kp1i

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vardenrhode

@PeterBlackQUT “More flexible morals” is a delightful euphemism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@PeterBlackQUT But I thought Justice Michael Kirby was going to be Australia’s Jerry Springer! http://tr.im/koMc

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@vardenrhode Ah, but which is worse? The Box or Room 101?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vardenrhode

Fear is the mind-killer. Now where’s that spin-dry cycle again…?

via Twitter Web Client

@martinbarry “Letter”? I used this new-fangled contraption called the “telephone” and she entered our conversation directly into my file.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinbarry

Once more impressed with the practicality and efficiency of the people at the Australian Tax Office. Despite my, erm, “little problem”.

via Twitter Web Client

@lzcd You’re right. There is so much negativity about experiencing pleasure in public, at the laundromat or elsewhere.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lzcd

The spin-dry cycle really can bring a small moment of joy to an otherwise ho-hum day.

@jg_rat What have you got against blond surfing labradors? http://tr.im/kogl

via Twitter Web Client

@ragamouf I just read that youth transgender surgery story over lunch. http://tr.im/kofL Agreed, the headline is pure tabloid.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragamouf

Errands. Don’t question me.

@jayrosen_nyu Even a student journo here in Oz can’t separate “journalism” from “newspapers”, product from packaging. http://tr.im/ko0a

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

RT @jayrosen_nyu: Paging Cleese! “I am shocked to find there is unreliable information on this open bulletin board anyone can scrawl upon.”

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jayrosen_nyu: Who ever said that social media would be a great way to screen out noise and get reliable facts…? http://tr.im/knTb

@rbbrown There’s got to be a special term for deliberately angling for a Wankley Award.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

@rbbrown “Natalie Bassingweherhuergferjgfrjerwhatever” is about spot on, and I didn’t even watch the Logies.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jdub: ZOMG, first web-exclusive story on new Crikey website (officially real this morning): http://is.gd/wrUM Classic @rbbrown snark!

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh I’ve got Sen Lundy’s forum http://tr.im/knHz in m diary as a “possible”, but this week is, um, insane for me. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

@andrewbarnett Even if they were ladyboys I’d be uninterested. Actually it’d be even more annoying. Tastes differ. YMMV.

via Twitter Web Client

YouTube just recommend that I watch “FHM’s Girls Next Door Thailand 2004”. I mean, just how WRONG can you get?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @neerav: Option1: Drop ship @stilgherrian from a C130 Hercules cargo plane - literally from cargo hold. [Really? Eek!]
