@maverickwoman Paris Hilton and I are almost indistinguishable.

@SilkCharm @kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Am I revealing a big gap in my world if I say I’ve never heard of @KimKardashian before?

@curious_scribe Marine tsunami alert still active. Risk of dangerous waves etc for next few hours. http://tr.im/sqSo

@SilkCharm Ta for the tip on @KimKardashian’s trip to Botswana to look at diamond mines. Lovely parallels.

@Opheli8 I do find the ABC website a tad slow for these things, but I’m meant to know how news is working, so “professional interest”.

For those who missed the Jeff Goldblum not-dead story, here’s a video from The Colbert Report. http://tr.im/sqP1

via Twitter Web Client

Why is the ABC story STILL saying no tsunami waves have been detected, when they have? http://tr.im/sqOl Too slow, people!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mediahunter: Jeff Goldblum confirmed dead following tsunami. [Fine work, Sir.]

If the US government can find an extra jar of peanut butter then they get to use Firefox. Or something. http://tr.im/sqDR

@danpatmore Yes, that’s 0.17m wave height at that bouy. http://tr.im/sqCy But the waves build up as they approach land.

@JonoH Maybe “Aussie” John Symond’s tasteless harbourside home could be washed away. That’d be a bonus.

OK, so NSW, Vic and Tas have a Tsunami Warning. Marine only at this stage: get out of the sea / away from water’s edge. http://tr.im/squA

This “open letter” is both excellent and has an excellent addressee. Also, funny. http://tr.im/spWq

@_Soliloquy_ Fat Cat was lame. As this clip shows. http://tr.im/spNx Humphrey B Bear was made by educators, IIRC.

@hortovanyi Why am I lying in bed thinking about Fat Cat? I have no idea.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hortovanyi

@susan_m The program was “Fat Cat and Friends” though. If he had no friends then the entire program was a fabric of lies.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to susan_m

I’m in bed, where it’s warm and I can, with luck, feel less crap. I know it’s not 6.30pm. Does anyone remember Fat Cat? http://tr.im/spIs

@aqualung Actually, “boning the goat” sounds worse. Eh, Eddie?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aqualung

Me: “So how many eps did you just watch?” Him: “Well… [shuffles feet]” Me: “Um, ‘well’ is not a number.”

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong is watching MasterChef. I blame @firstdogonmoon. “Deboning the goat” sounds wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh Yes, as usual the Powerhouse Museum’s caterers had good wine. Disclosure: European Catering is a client.

@DDsD When Senator Conroy and I shook hands last night, there was an electric moment and we exchanged bodies.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

This whole Internet thing really needs bringing under control.

Also, I wish I’d known I was going to the event before I put on one of my worst t-shirts. @renailemay you are a dangerous man!

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. Me and @piawaugh photographed at last night’s launch. http://tr.im/soXF Guess which is which!

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Maybe if you didn’t tell me the women’s secret, but drew a diagram or something?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@firstdogonmoon However I do think “Warren” is a suitable name for a water buffalo.

@martinbarry I do like the table tennis theory. But, the one women’s toilet I have seen (don’t ask!) had no table tennis table. Mystery!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinbarry

@firstdogonmoon The “reverse albino skunk ferret”? http://tr.im/soSP (This a safer conversation than another I can see taking place.)

via Twitter Web Client

Why do women go to the toilet in pairs and trios? Is there some sekrit wimmin’s urine ritual I don’t know about?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Gloopy moments. Mmmmmmm… Oh. Wait. I may have misunderstood.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The sound system is playing Spandau Ballet’s “True” and there’s nothing I can do about it. Suffer. http://tr.im/soBp

@SnarkyPlatypus Matt Preston, I suddenly realise, looks like the hybrid offspring of Mikey Robbins and Michael Tunn.

@Sally_Robertson I’m back from Africa a week now. I was at 2SER being interviewed about it, broadcast Friday. And borrowing a desk.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Sally_Robertson

Thank you to Radio 2SER for letting me work from their newsroom this morning. Comfy chair, well-lit desk, intelligent background chatter.

“Crikey story filed late”, that should be. Botheration. Oh well, tomorrow…

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey story filed! Finally! And my internets are still as slow as a wet hen which is wet.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear MacBook Pro, did I ask you to crash comprehensive when I’m on deadline? Did I? Did I?

via Cloudhopper

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / Broadway / Radio 2SER for 1030 recording / somewhere quiet to write for Crikey. Attention limited.

via Twitter Web Client

@SeandBlogonaut Me? I think I just may have a cold. Thank the gods. We shall see.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SeandBlogonaut

Thu plan: A morning of writing; maybe an afternoon of writing somewhere else; decide if I’m well enough for a “Stilgherrian Live”.

@stephenconroy SMH is just Twitter written on paper these days, anyway, with a few photos thrown in. They have more chefs than journalists.

@michaelmeloni Most people in the West have such safe, dull, predictable lives they need the adrenalin thrill of disaster. Any disaster.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

@EddieVukovic I think Jeff Goldblum rides the pigs. Thousands of Jeff Goldblums, in fact. All animatronic to hide the fact he’s really dead.

“The Perils of Liberal Party Risk”: a risk-preferring leader vs a risk-averse institution. http://tr.im/swCi Nice spiffy toy, @Pollytics!

That said, I’m happy the tsunami warning system worked. It only fell down when those warnings had to be reported and acted upon.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est important que tous les canaux sont débloqués et coule sans heurts.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Maybe the SMH could combine their swine flu hysteria with the tsunami scare into one giant swineami! Inundated with pigs!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il ya une certaine quantité de douleur, mais je suis pas sûr du reste. Et vous?
